Another Hello, or rather, Ciao!
I am a PhD first year student in English Literature from Italy and editorial/literary translator from English and French into Italian (that's what I'd love to do as part of my career, I am just starting out). I have always been interested in notetaking and trying to learn more on learning, I have used Buzan mindmaps in the past, but they don't work for everything. The key thing about starting a research is exactly the fact that you have to be able to read and understand the notes you took years before and be able to expand on all that you read over time. That's why when I found out about the zettelkasten, I was amazed! I said oh wow that's it, I need this and really gotta make this work. I can't bear to think about all the stuff I've read in the past and it's like "where did my thoughts go"? Now I have a fresh start, so that's where all the insecurity comes from.
I really look forward in learning more on this forum!
