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
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
