New semester - new class.

 

This quarter I'm taking a Math class. It's frustrating, and the questions on the test aren't all covered by the lecture. So, I'm struggling to figure them out. I can't wait for this class to be over! I've given up worrying about my GPA and just hoping to pass this class with a C or better.

That’s the way to look at it. I did that with math and science because I really dislike those.

I use to tutor math. Depends on what it is I suppose. I can't stand quadratic equations. I know how to do them, just detest them is all. I prefer trig. 

 

Good luck, I know how hard it is to study when you don't like the subject. I am actually thinking of taking some courses. Lily you have inspired me.

The problem is that I can get really comfortable with the material in the textbook, and then they throw something else on the test and in the homework. It's not right and it's frustrating.

Well, I survived the Math class. I was really concerned that I might not pass it, but I did, with a B+. It's my first non-A grade in my whole college career, but I'll take it and be happy.

It's the first week of Developmental Psych and, like every other class, there is a week and a half's worth of work to do. To top that off, I got my weeks confused and thought this was spring break, so I offered to work more hours. They have scheduled me even more hours than I agreed to. I'll be chatting with them about that today. Meanwhile, I'm just a bit panicked. I know, deep breaths and put one foot in front of the other until it's done.

I survived the first week. I did better than survive. So, far, everything that has been graded is 100%, even though I didn't have time to read 2 of the 3 chapters. I'm glad there is an index in the back of the book lol.

I'm disappointed. This is the class that I really wanted to take and learn the stuff, and I don't have time to do any reading. I'm watching the lectures and taking the quizzes off of them alone. There is usually one or two questions that weren't covered, so I look them up in the text. It's been working so far. I have an A at this point and I don't see that changing. It'a been a good class and there are only 2 weeks left to go and then summer break! I have so much to do over the break - things I don't have time for now.

You can do the reading later if it really interests you.

    • I agree. WoT needs to be set apart from GoT so people don't think it's playing to GoT popularity.
    • This is how I always imagined them handling the use of the OP. And with CGI, I think it can be done well. I've always envisioned it like ribbons of light, a different color for each part of the OP, being actually woven in different patterns for different weaves.   Yes, learning the truth caused many of the Aiel to go crazy, like Sevanna's first lover, and many others to totally abandon the Aiel way of life (forget what they call it). And I think they need to show the Emonds Fielders' each having a couple stops along their way to Baerlon and Tar Valon, to give us a good sense of how long of a journey it is.     Well, if they're gonna have "pillow friends out the wazoo", they'll have nudity. It's unfortunate that they will have to pander to the PC crowd and it really is a sad commentary on modern society that we can't enjoy a tv show/movie without nudity. But I think they need to choose the scenes carefully. Like it's one thing to see Aviendha running off nude to Rhuidean, but not dignified Moiraine. Just showing her bare shoulders will be enough to know that she too, has to go nude. I will be very upset if they mix in real world cursing with WoT style cursing. It is a big part of RJ's world building and helps to set it apart as alternative world. (I believe "bloody" is actually a curse word in the UK.)     Not saying I agree with polygamy, but if you can have homosexuality, why not polygamy? Besides the fact that it is totally accepted in Aiel culture. But I think they can do as independent trysts, with Min being the one he finally stays with. I don't think they should cut any of the 3 relationships because they are important in the development of the characters, and where Elayne is concerned, Rand's feelings for her impact his decision in dealing with Rahvin because he knows if he allows his feelings for her to become public, she will become a target. (Personally, I would really like to keep Elayne's pregnancy because there was a lot about it I found amusing.) I would really miss the scene when they all bond Rand and become fully aware of his love for them. I thought it was a beautiful scene, but I know we can't have it all.   The use of the Bowl of Winds is what finally checked the Dark One's control of the weather. It was a major victory for the Aes Sedai and Wind Finders, so I think it needs to stay in. Shadar Logoth and it's consequences (Mat accepting the dagger) is already pretty important, I think. Fain will probably be important for the first season or so, but then I say kill him off.   I hope they don't sacrifice the development of the main characters for the sake of time or big action/battle scenes. The growth of our main characters and their friendship bonds are one of the things that sets WoT apart from most other fantasy books I've read. It's actually what I love so much about Harry Potter and why I can watch those movies over and over and have read the books twice. I just fell in love the with the characters and their devotion to each other.  
    • Oh I didn't know those weren't all the titles
    • now remember author's name; P L Travers, pseudonym of Helen Golf.     as far as I recall, Compulsion was never done through any indirect means anytime in this series.   my impression of Mary Poppins was that she tried to make the children ethical; not necessarily try to control them.
