I always thought that taking Calculus will turn me into a Mathematician. It was that class when people took it, I considered them to be Math geniuses. So far, I feel nothing. This has been my first week, only. The most important thing that I have learned is that this class is not called Calculus. It is called Calc! If you know someone who “claims” … Continue reading Calc!
The past eight weeks have been a continuous juggle. Juggle between Math 112 online and : vacation, driving kids to their summer activities, and moving. Every second of the past eight weeks, I was doing something. If I looked at a culdesac while riding bicycles with my kids, I would think of the unit circle. While packing, if I saw some ethernet cable on the … Continue reading Math 112
I read the Potter series long time ago. I don’t remember much of it. With the arrival of the new book, “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child,” I had no intentions of reading it. I tried reading Chambers of Secret with my eleven years old, but I couldn’t keep myself interested. It felt childish. My son started reading book 7 and my daughter latched on. … Continue reading Harry Potter and the Cursed Child
Millions of people were suppose to come to Oregon. Towns were suppose to be packed with cars for this celestial event. People told me that a two hours drive is taking six! Hotels in the path of totality were full all the way from New Port, Oregon on the Pacific coast to Wyoming which is far as we looked. Air bnb was full. One family … Continue reading The Great White Trash Solar Eclipse
Pre class: I have no idea what class I have to enroll in. The instructors are on Spring break. They need to give me “all clear” before I take a math class. (On a side note, I showed my transcript to one of the teachers and he said he teaches 111. He can’t help me but the main head of Math will be my best choice. … Continue reading Math 111
The last two weeks have been crazy. Not crazy busy, but my thoughts have been crazy. I could’nt help but think (believe me, I tried a lot to contain my crazy thoughts): What will I do if I find my husband cheating? If I have to hide, I will choose a hotel, instead of a campground. I will pay the entire bill in cash, discretely, … Continue reading Crazy Thoughts
Dar-ul-Uloom, school of knowledge, was an event organized by Al-Mustafa Foundation and Girl Scout troop 496. The event’s aim was to educate the kids of the community about charity in Islam with Harry Potter’s Hogwarts theme. Kids were given a ride in a dar-ul-uloom express before they entered the “great hall.” They were given special treats after the ride. At the entrance, two “wizards” … Continue reading Dar-ul-Uloom(School of Knowledge)
My day was going fairly well, no big decisions to make, until I found my self in a pickle of right and wrong. My five year old and I were reading books in a book shop, Barnes and Nobles. While I was reading “Pinkalicious”, I saw a mom (supposedly) with her two-ish year old daughter (yip,I am a pro at estimating kid’s age after having … Continue reading Am I Wrong?
I couldn’t sleep all night ( of course, I did get some sleep, but it’s not dramatic to declare that). Tomorrow was a big day. Didn’t want to mess up anything, by waking up late, or being stuck in traffic to being lost in the last 0.5 mile where GPS would just show a dot and a flag. The morning routine went well (just forgot … Continue reading On Time
