I got scolded by my ex supervisor for starting with the template and not the content and now I feel bad
But on the other hand, we are writing a paper for which the actual submission template is very ugly with double spacing and a terrible font, I hate looking at it and have zero will to proofread all those ugly pages. So for me it makes sense to gather motivation by making it a nice template I'll want to see filled and read again and again
Waste of time according to some maybe (yeah I'm still salty at my supervisor's comment), but it feels nice and motivating to be taking notes in a cool environment.
I don't want to be miserably focused on productive stuff all the time! Let me find joy in esthetics where I can.
