October quiz

Haha … spot on! My top 10 favorite movies includes at least two horror movies… and both are about serial killers. I won’t deny that I like bonkers. The craziest, the better.

September quiz

I know we are no longer in September but I had to post it. I have been cheated…  I was stupid enough to buy BS from someone I should not believe a word they says. I have to be fooled but as usual I have to let it go. I’m not going to retaliate… at least not in their face. As soon as I can overcome my anger I will post last month writing prompt and a post about what happened. (Even if I have to keep some facts to myself.)

Classes

Classes started a few weeks ago. I’m taking phonetics II… my karmic friend (I don’t like it and I haven’t practice dictations in a while) and Integral (it is a mix between History, Literature and Writing – I’m not completely sure about this one… for now I like it =) )

The second subject is a little more complicated than the usual subjects. The instructors do not ask for any type of writing in particular. They gives us some guidelines but we are free to ignore them… in a certain way, they are asking us to “intervene” text in any creative way(this is the moment in which the word fan fictions pops in my head).

I’m certainly at odds with all of this freedom in writing. I love to write but in college, writing is so limited and constricted by instructors’ rules that any type of freedom is unsettling.

Whatever thing writing that comes from this experiment will be shared here… as soon as the classes are over. I don’t want to have any problems with plagiarism even if it is from my own work =P

So long

I haven’t written in this blog in so long.  My life turned a chaos and it was hard to keep up with everything. My brother moved out and my mother wanted to fix, clean and redecorate the whole house. At the end, we ended up doing it only in the rooms but for a long stretch of time my house was a mess.

I visited my brother’s new flat… I like it. Even if I had to spend many hours supervising the workers while they fix the plumbing.  A downtown flat, with a nice view and a great Internet connection, I’m thinking of paying my brother a long visit-  maybe one or two months long visit.

Classes started… and this deserves it own post.

June is…

June is dead…. well not dead more like finished. Yep! June ended. And classes ended too.

I can still feel the bittersweet taste of each class. I’m still looking for some answers for many questions and I definitely don’t know what some professors are looking when they correct exams. Another semester in college is gone and I’m still trying to figuring out some inner workings of it.

Some items of my to-do list

  • Working in my research.
  • I will try to publish some articles
  • I have been planning to be a teacher aid (It will be something completely new for me)
  • I need to revamp a website
  • revamp this blog is a “maybe”
  • Working in some posts for this blog…
  • Read is a must
  • Study… once I decide my plan of action for the next term (I wish I have more certainties in life.)

My b-day is next week… I may have some surprises… or not =) Who knows?

I can’t find my planner… god knows which were the things I planned for us this month!

Helpful article about “The vagueness”

Great article! it’s helpful even if you are not writing a thesis. Academic writing can be a real challenge for ESL and EFL writers. (me included). I’m definitely adding this site to my following list!!

Dear Readers. Shaun Lehmann, Katherine Firth (of the Research Voodoo blog) and I are currently in the process of writing a new book for Open University Press called ‘Writing Trouble’. The proposed book evolved out of our work on the Thesis Bootcamp program, a writing intervention originally designed by Peta Freestone and Liam Connell. Over […]

A lot of questions and no answers

Ok… this is a kind of situation that I have never encounter before.

A few days ago, I sat for an oral exam. The girl next to me was really nervous, but that is completely normal. When the oral exam began, the professor asked the girl a question. The girl answered, a very shaky answer but I does not really matter. At of the blue the professor ask the girl to explain an example he provided (with a clear sexual implication.) The girl got even more nervous and answered the professor about the example avoiding the implication. She gave him a different context to the example making it sound sarcastic. However, the professor did not accept her answer and began questioning her further on trying to elicit  the implication he wanted to hear. The girl, who did not want to play his game,  refused to answer. But he kept on…. and the girl started crying (she was now having a panic attack.) The professor was now really pissed and (probably because another professor entered the room) he stopped his assault and change the topic. At this point the girl could not control anymore and stopped him and left the room crying uncontrollably.

I was in the room the whole time. I felt so powerless. I knew the girl was really nervous and it was hard for her to answer the professor’s questions. However, I cannot understand the professor’s obsession to make her answer with the context that he wanted. The girl’s answer was possible but he was dead set to make her talk about the sexual connotation.  What it is more, when he mentioned the same example in class, no one laughed.   At the end he made a girl had a nervous breakdown and when it was my turn to talk he never let me finish a single sentence. We ended up being affected by the whole situation and he did not got his way. Or his only goal was to make the girl cry her eyes out?

So many questions and no answers to any of them. This was more than unfortunate situation… this was…. I don’t know. … I simply don’t know.

May quiz

You Are Physics

You are a highly intellectual and intelligent person. There’s not a subject that doesn’t interest you.
You are very drawn to theories, and you are capable of understanding incredibly complex ideas.

You are curious about everything around you – from the smallest cell to the universe as a whole.
You believe that there are many connections in the world that we can’t see. The way everything fits together fascinates you.

I don’t know. I’m more biology related than physics. I was never good at physics ever if I loved math… physics was like the ugly cousin of math, weird and hard to understand.
