I have spend the past eight weeks telling people what Dendrology is. Dendrology is a science of identifying plants. It seems easy. It is not even close to easy. I had a feeling that this would be tough one! The first day of class started out as hell. You can imagine how the rest of the term would have felt. Almost every week we had … Continue reading Dendrology
As I walk away from my Dendrology finals, I get a weird feeling. I get a weird feeling that next bunch of classes that I will take will be online via OSU. This is it! I get a weird feeling that I won’t be coming back here to take another final exam. This is it! I get a weird feeling that I won’t be coming … Continue reading This is it!
Living in a small town, we need reminder of other big cities. It’s so easy to flow with a small town life and not realize a world outside. When a long weekend came, we were all ready to get out of our shell and get exposed. Seattle, here we are! Space needle is a must!! (Tickets are pricey!) Space needles has a moving glass floor. … Continue reading Seattle
Medina is a very special city. It is the city of Prophet Muhammad, (peace be upon him). Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was a prophet send to Allah for mankind. Only a Muslim is allowed to enter the city or any other city in Saudi Arabia( cool, right?) I have always heard about Medina. Infact, to tell you the truth I always got confused with the name … Continue reading Medina
If you have taken ( and passed) college Biology, you know exactly what I am talking about. For the rest, it is a cliff made of skeletons! (If you allow me) Once upon a time when mankind had no concepts of greed/ love/ war/ , or even exsistence, there were these tiny microscopic creatures living under the ocean, ( we call ’em protists-foraminifera (foram for … Continue reading The White Cliffs of Dover
The past three months have been: amazing, crazy, stressful, “hmmph”, ” cant do this,”” what was I thinking,” ” creepy guy,”” friends are the best,” and “I love this.” (Wish there was one single word or phrase to describe my long sequence of feelings.) It started from the cold, dark, wet days of January. I choose to take Integral Calculus ( just a little secret, … Continue reading Adrenaline in my viens!
Around three months ago, I took on a couple of challenges: – started tutoring Math, – became a supplemental instructor for college algebra – enrolled in Calculus – enrolled in a 200 Bio class At first, I was excited. I enjoyed the challenge. Juggling around with my time, making sure to be proactive. But as time went by, the “love” started to fade. It started … Continue reading I survived!
My thoughts have changed. Simple things in my life have suddenly become so interesting . While having breakfast in the morning, I can’t stop thinking about my cells, who would be using the food (glycolysis) to turn it into energy (ATP). I can’t stop but wonder that my youngest who I find so “little” have the same process going on in her tiny cells. How … Continue reading Oh Bob! What have you done….
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
