Tell us about something you think is terribly unfair — and explain how you would rectify it.
A student’s rant is about to be started. Caution: weak hearted people beware!
- Physics Final lab next week is no fair. I would love it to be delayed
- Maths Assignment so huge is no fair. I would want it less
- Statistics lab work so difficult no fair. Can’t it be easy
- I haven’t understood a single word of physics this semester in classes is no fair. I want the best teacher in uni.
- No news about student’s week in uni is no fair. I need some break
- Exams being conducted in November is no fair. Some more time please.
- Me writing this post is no fair. I’ll go and study!
As the title tells you.. I CAN’T WRITE! I’ve been
trying struggling for quite some time now to write.. As I usually write about daily prompts, I thought I don’t need to think up an idea as to what should I write about. But alas! here we are! I can’t think of even a simple response to daily prompts. I check my blog on regular basis and find stats approaching to zero. Maybe my head is bit full of maths assignment at the moment, topped with statistics practicals and physics’ tension, but the thing is that this semester, I have to study English as a compulsory subject and our teacher asks us mostly to write! you see what the problem is, I CAN’T WRITE!
I’m now free.. Free from the ultimate bounds of semester examinations and I’ve finally got a month to celebrate this freedom. So my first thought was that I will surf the internet all day long, read some good novels I’ve bought in the beginning of semester and yeah.. Watch some good movies.. But, now that my vacations have started every single thing that felt amazing during exams now sounds boring and dragged. This is the reason I didn’t even write yesterday’s prompt and haven’t yet started any new book. And since the results are still to be announced, I don’t know whether I should be happy or sad about it. The exams I took were not really up to my expectations and I don’t know what results to expect, Maybe I’m not satisfied and results might, just might turn out good or maybe exams really went bad this time. I just don’t know! I’m also not feeling that post exam euphoria I usually feel, Maybe it’s because I still can’t accept the reality that semester is over! I’M DONE! And I think it’s because Usually until now we have had a whole year to go and a long series of tests before we got the final paper in our hands! But this time, It was just different! We were like:
- New students
- It’s been two months already since university began
- Did you check the notice board? Exams Schedule is here!!
- Semester examinations are over
Seriously, how fast this happened I never realized. But now, after writing this post, I”m feeling a bit light headed finally that at least it’s over. No matter what the results are, By the way it does matter what the results are, but still, I think I’m suppose to cheer up at last because it’s over!! 😀
If you could choose to be a master (or mistress) of any skill in the world, which skill would you pick?
If there’s any skill in world, I would like to be accomplished at, is Mathematics. Yes, Mathematics! I am completely in love with the subject and I would like to cross all the finites of studying the subject! Though the post is being way too nerdish.. I just can’t help it! I just want to know everything there is about mathematics and then love to imply maths in daily life (which never happens :p). I would love to have such complete knowledge of the subject so that I can calculate most difficult problems on my finger tips.. I mean I’d really like to have brains like Scott Flansburg who doesn’t have to think to calculate… It comes as easily to him as ABC! (I mean 123! 😉 )
Tell us about a teacher who had a real impact on your life, either for the better or the worse. How is your life different today because of him or her?
Teachers, the only true mentors after our parents! I’ve been my teachers’ pet for many early school years (NO BRAGGING;)).. But honestly I was quite a nerd in my early school years and many of my classmates still hold that opinion about me! Well.. according to the question of daily prompt the only teacher which inspired me most was my mathematics teacher in my 1st year at college..
Mathematics had been my favourite subject since 3rd or 4th grade but I really I started hating in my last year of school! The subject getting least of my attention was maths!! & I was really considered quitting maths in college.. but I didn’t! I continued mathematics on my parent’s suggestion and it turned into my favour!! Sir Sohail started teaching me mathematics in a way that very few people can teach!! Though I was not one of his favourite students but he was definitely one of my favourite teachers! He was a perfectionist in his field and made maths easy for me again! Not just as a teacher but he was a really nice person too! Mathematics.. A subject which many hate was truly redefined in his classes!! I know it looks like a fifth grader’s essay on ‘My favourite teacher’ but I really can’t describe his teachings (in class) in words! He taught me many easy ways to do mathematics and even referred to us a calculator which none other can beat! Well.. though I can’t describe it very well but the extent of his being favourite among the students was such that each student of his class cried when he passed away last year!! And yeah.. One of the reasons that I”ll be starting my studies in university next week in the department of mathematics is that he made me fall in love with mathematics again! I hope one day, In fact whenever I’ll try to teach mathematics I’ll be as good as him or at least comparable to how he taught! 🙂
