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!
This post is quite a bit late than it actually should have been. I intended to write this post on my birthday i.e. on Friday 13th September (International Chocolate Day)
So, it might mean according to few that it was a supposed to be an unlucky day for me but it wasn’t. It was quite a good day for me actually. I went to the university dressed in my Eid clothes and was praised by many fellows! 😀 ( and honestly who doesn’t like to be praised). I received a very cute hand-made birthday card from my siblings, which made it even better for me.
My actual purpose of writing this post is to highlight a few important points about 13th no. and International Chocolate day (about which I found out this year only)
Friday the 13th is considered one of the most unluckiest days of the month, however, according to us Muslims Friday is one of the luckiest and holy day of the week. Also, odd numbers are given special regard in Islam. Fear of Friday the 13th is nothing but a type of phobia known as paraskevidekatriaphobia a concatenation of the Greek words Paraskeví (Παρασκευή, meaning “Friday”), and dekatreís (δεκατρείς, meaning “thirteen”) attached to phobía (φοβία, from phóbos, φόβος, meaning “fear”). In fact, 13 is considered by many to be a lucky number. 13 is considered to be a lucky number in Italy. Also. many successful sports figures have worn the number 13. Apart from it, American country-pop singer-songwriter Taylor Swift was born on December 13. She considers 13 her lucky number due to lucky events happening to her when the number appears (her first album going gold in 13 weeks, being seated at awards shows in the 13th seat, row or section). She also wears the number written on her hand at her concerts so she has it with her everywhere she goes. However on the other side 13 is considered an unlucky number by The famous author of today J.K Rowling made a reference to its bad luck charm as it’s written in third book of Harry Potter series “when thirteen dine together, the first to rise will be the first to die”. I guess it’s just a matter of believing what one wants to believe! 😀 But for chocolate lovers, I guess it would be an easy way to eat lots of chocolate on 13th of September without any good reason! 😉
I guess this is what my birthday cake this year should have looked like!
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!
Describe the last nightmare you remember having. What do you think it meant?
Nightmares are the types of dreams which may wake one in the middle of sleep due to fear or anxiety. Every human being feels the emotions of happiness, sadness or fear and these emotions can be easily depicted in one’s dreams.
A few weeks ago, prior to the beginning of my university I had a dream in which I was in the university and was searching for the classes. I know that university consists of many plain areas mainly consisting of trees and just some barren land. So, what I saw was that many teachers were working as guides and pointing us in the direction of classes, and though I did reach my department I wasn’t able to reach the correct class. I asked many other students but they didn’t respond satisfactorily enough for me to reach my destined classroom. Though it is not remotely frightening but it did make me feel bad to think about the dream when I woke up next morning. I think it was the fear of a new place and also it was the fear of new people maybe, due to which I had that dream, but thankfully that nightmare didn’t come true! 😀
