Once I had taken on my adventure through the tumult of drawings, I did begin to feel slightly concerned. Maybe I shouldn’t be spending quite so much time in when I’m supposed to be learning embellishing my margins. So I did what any self-respecting student gets concerned that they’ve made the wrong choices in life: I Googled it. And upon inputting ‘concentration’ and ‘doodling’ and one of the top results was the PDF of a psychological study which not only promised to answer my question but suggested the possibility that doodling could be potentially helpful (!!!).
*DISCLAIMER: Obviously as a third-wave feminist, I do not believe their is an 'ideal woman' - feminist or otherwise - that people should aspire to; feminism should be about respecting women's choices and providing an environment where women can make and develop such educated choices. So if you want to be a damsel in distress, I respect your right to that choice. But I might question it's efficacy. And obviously feminists can wear dresses.
