One more week, and many more tests. 3 chemistry, 1 law, 1 english, 2 physics. I am slowly dying on the inside from all of this work and studying, but let’s be honest, we are all dying from the moment of birth. Has this experience shortened my life span? Most likely. Will I remember most of what I learned? Most likely not.

However, this was a very humbling time, with wisdom just being thrown around like oxygen. The ability to talk freely with people who have been underrated in the intelligence department was interesting. Being able to express writing style in a medium in which this generation has grown up with is a new experience as well. The people who constituted this class was also acceptable, without too many of them extroverts of course.

The best part of this was moving away from tradition. Watching movies in class, having been pushed to look past the wow and glamour, dissecting literature like there is no tomorrow. No, there is no right answer. There will never be a right answer, only an opinion. This opinion was not given to us, so we had to forge it ourselves. The norm was left to rot, as grammar sheets and what’s important and why was replaced by discussions and a small form of classroom democracy, where everyone had the freedom to express one’s thoughts. Lessons learned from this class have been exceptionally beneficial and will definitely be an asset for the future. I look forward to this class everyday because I know there will always be something interesting happening. Was this class easy though? I don’t think I could come up with an answer to that. But, time for the cons now…

Consistency and organization would have been better to help the flow of this course. The composition was also a little bit lacking, taking too much time on a certain thing would take time away from another(isn’t this how it always is?). This could be blamed on the short semester, but I am not one to point fingers.  Blending didn’t really work either, the subjects were suddenly transitioned from one thing into the next, with little or no connections. Constructive Criticism TIME has ArIvEd!!1!-

My biggest problem was trying to find good inspiration to keep writing. Writing is definitely not a strong suite of mine, well, nothing is, but the point is that there should always be something to write, draw, or think about. Perhaps it was all of the other work outside of this class, and all the rushing that all these other teachers are trying to do just to complete their curriculum. All this shows is that they try to load too much into one semester, that if there are any days where school is closed, the student’s must take their own time outside of their own life to finish what should of been done in class if the time was given (especially having 3 days of physics in 1 hour). The class kind of died at the end once the big assignment loomed over us all. Many improvements to be made, but A for effort.

If the decision arises to ever take this class again, the answer would be simple and instantaneous. If this class was not part of my life, then I would just be another person, another one of THEM. Enlightened, yes. Aware, somewhat. Changed, very much so. Hopefully, this will affect my future judgements.

Hopefully I can leave my mark in the world.

 

 

 

 

 

Am I a pessimist for thinking that no matter what someone does, there will always be someone else that  fucks  messes it up?

Math needs to grow the hell up and start solving it’s own problems.

Here from my hut currently located at an Asian poker party, I wish everyone  merry Christmas

Hopefully I can nail this. New day ladies and gents.

Oh no, the holidays are here, and all the family will come to enjoy the festivity together with us. We shall go out to  buy presents and make a lavish dinner that no one can finish. We will cut down a tree and put hundreds of dollars of decorations on it to make it stand out. Also, lets max out the credit card to buy the most extravagant gifts that we saw on commercials.

Don’t call me a pessimist for pouring salt into the wounds of reality, but facts are facts. And people need to think about what the reality really is.

How many holidays are there in a year? Uh… Valentines, Easter, Thanks Giving, Halloween, Christmas, and Boxing Day. There are many more, but those are the ones where we tend to spend a little more cash than usual. All for what though? To achieve the intangible love that comes with it. With christmas coming so soon, and boxing day just after, we as a society are especially susceptible to new ideas given out by commercials to make our loved ones happy. Only the best presents for that special someone, and if they don’t like it, it will be returned the next day. But where did it start?

The reason for christmas is to commemorate the birth of Jesus, as a Christian holiday, yet everyone celebrates it like their second birthday. A secret ploy set by the media, as an excuse to spend money, “make that someone happy with this new sleek item”, because you know, happiness can only be bought and experienced over these few days. And when we hear the word “christmas” drifting in the air, we immediately start thinking about what we should buy, to make everyone around you happy.

I think it really just comes down to the way of tradition, and how we got raised. We grow up our lives, and each year, we go through the same celebrations. These facts of what to do when just get hammered into our minds like an invisible nail. We fear losing christmas and other holidays, because they have happened every day of our short lives, and simply could not be replaced because heck, we have not experienced anything new. Not only with a lack of knowledge, but also social pressures. No one wants to say they aren’t doing christmas this year, or ” I’m not buying any presents for my kids”. This policy is so strict, that if you waver just a bit, people will ostracize you from their lives.

All in all, christmas is just another holiday were we can express our love through money.

What a wonderful emotion.

Recently, our physics class got assigned to do some certain online questions on a site called: Mastering Physics.

Now, this site will tend to mark you wrong for getting the hints wrong, or significant figure errors, or even freaking rounding errors. It can also give 6 attempts for a 3 choice question, just incase you might choose the same wrong answer 3 times. My inability to deal with this crap is driving me insane. I feel like sending the creator of this site some dirty messages and/or death threats. I dont think I have ever felt a passion to destroy something such as this in my life ever before, or with this strength. My hatred goes beyond Hitler’s hatred for people who did not have blue eyes and blonde hair. This level of hatred is unimaginable and unfathomable. My rage might overpower my sanity.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It’s not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

Personally not into this kind of music, but it has a good message

and awesome imagery

watch it on youtube.

Don’t know why it’s not working

Yes.

Do it.

But it sure buys you anything.

My dad was a very ” thrifty man”. Weekend yard sales was the thing back then, when I would accompanied him to find “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure”. Clich(e with accent grave) or not, those days past, and now wholesaling became more popular. Why find a used item when you could buy it brand new for cheaper?

Sigh… Where did those days go.
