Someone give me the motivation to study…. how real is the Ballmer Peak
These are my interests and opinions and passive aggressive feelings. This is also a manifestation of what I find aesthetically pleasing.Yes? Submit a post.
Why does every day feel like a week
1. Put dark hot chocolate powder into cup
2. Add cinnamon powder and mix
2. Add enough boiling water to dissolve powder
3. Add honey, stir
3. Add milk, stir
*The honey is for flavor, but adds sugar as well so you can cut back on the cocoa powder if it is sweetened already
Let me appease these cliches for a moment
Live, laugh, and love everyday
Show gratitude in sincere ways
The Golden Rule of reciprocity
Holds its ubiquity across all religions and peoples
Whatever anthropogenic reasoning
You act, you feel, and this connects everything and everyone
To see a World in a Grain of Sand And a Heaven in a Wild Flower, Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand And Eternity in an hour. A Robin Redbreast in a Cage Puts all Heaven in a Rage. A dove house fill’d with doves and pigeons Shudders Hell thro’ all its regions. A Dog starv’d at his Master’s Gate Predicts the ruin of the State. A Horse misus’d upon the Road Calls to Heaven for Human blood. Each outcry of the hunted Hare A fiber from the Brain does tear. He who shall train the Horse to War Shall never pass the Polar Bar. The Beggar’s Dog and Widow’s Cat, Feed them and thou wilt grow fat. The Gnat that sings his Summer song Poison gets from Slander’s tongue. The poison of the Snake and Newt Is the sweat of Envy’s Foot. A truth that’s told with bad intent Beats all the Lies you can invent. It is right it should be so; Man was made for Joy and Woe; And when this we rightly know Thro’ the World we safely go. Every Night and every Morn Some to Misery are Born. Every Morn and every Night Some are Born to sweet delight. Some are Born to sweet delight, Some are Born to Endless Night.
Goal Plan for 2011-2012
1.@ Beginning of semester: make weekly schedule
-list study resources and try them out
-find study groups for each class; try them out; decide within the first week which ones you will stick with.(BIOEHS, MEP academic learning, SLC)
- develop a schedule of when you do what homework and how much of it for how long.
-set aside time for career development
-look for environ. or eng. clubs and go to the meetings; choose one to stick with; set aside time for the club activities.
-set aside time to excercise
2. Start organized, stay organized
- get a box to file all papers for every class and activity you have
-clean desk after every use
- do laundry once a week
-BEFORE CLASS: review last lectures notes, then preread the next section!
-Record lecture material(especially for humanities)
-When taking notes always have a pen(for important stuff); a pencil(for examples); and a highlighter(for especially important stuff)
-Revisit class notes and make note of important points
-Give yourself breaks
-have a plan of how to catch up or not fall behind when there is a midterm in another class.
1. before you start studying, think about the topic you are about to study. be curious about the topic. Then you will have a motivation to study and it’ll be easier to get into the zone.
-Stick with your schedule(make it possible)
-Set a buffer time for making up material
-Have a plan of how to catch up or not fall behind when there is a midterm in another class.
- If you are going to lecture, make use of the time you spend there by staying alert and asking questions
*Things to “Recall” :]
- you take tests best when you feel prepared
-prepared to be suprised.
-don’t panic on a hard test; NEVER assume you don’t have the knowledge to do a problem. They can always be figured out with what you learned.
- you have friends. don’t neglect them.
- you also have a family. don’t neglect them either.
- be aware of your personal brand. What do you want it to be?
- listen to music when you can. it keeps a body happy.
"For all the tendencies we have to be pulled in the wrong direction and make dumb decisions all of us in our lives, we also have the capacity to transcend ourselves. and while it does not always occur at moments of greatest challenge, we can draw upon that capacity. this is one of those times." - Al Gore
I don’t care for more money than I need. I don’t care for a flawless life. All I want is to live day by day inspired by everything around me to find happiness even in the most trying situations. Day by day I want to be driven by my dreams to be fascinated with everything around me, and I want to share this inspiration with others. Everywhere I go and with whomever I meet, I want to learn to share laughter and happiness and a consistent optimism that I communicate through my actions. I don’t care for more money than I need. I don’t care for a flawless life.
sometimes i catch myself looking at other peoples pictures on facebook, and i think…wtf. my life is more important than this.
When I’m grocery shopping it can take me 10 minutes to weigh the pros and cons of purchasing multi-grain bread vs. whole wheat bread. So what jobs and grad schools am I going to apply too… I’m going to need a few minutes
