December 2010 Archives

Hey guys! It's been a while I've written. Finals are finally over and I finally found some time to write blogs.

I was thinking about how I want to approach the next one and there were a bunch of things that made me think. So I'll just lay it out on a simple format and I'll hit the next blog up with some things I've been up to.

Just some advice...
-Even if you did well this semester, don't let up. Refresh your memories with some of the things you have already learned and keep it stored away for good use later. I have a bad habit of forgetting a lot of things after I learn them so I am going to try that this year.

Just some advice...
Now, if you got an A for some of the core classes like Calculus or Chemistry, you should think about applying for tutoring. Sometimes they are filled in terms of positions, but it doesn't hurt to try. You are sharing your knowledge with other students and you get to get paid for it. It works out perfectly. Probably one of the more important reasons why I am trying to refresh the things I've learned this semester.

Just some advice...
This is specifically for someone I know, but I can guarantee that other people may have some similar experiences. Look, it's okay to do bad in a class. Even if you failed the course. I'm not saying it's excusable, since you should have done better. But things happen and they happen for a reason. It's not going to be the end of the world. Most of the time, it's the people around you that you are afraid of when you get a bad grade. If you live in a competitive and comparative atmosphere, try to relieve the academic pressures. I've discussed before in my previous blogs, but I think the academic expectations are sometimes set way to high. Be a little more positive! That's a lot coming from me haha.

Just some advice...
Two parts here. For all you non-college students, this is about the time you should have a good idea of where you want to go to college and what you want to do. There is nothing wrong with undeclared majors, but to be honest, it's better to have something before you go in for the first year. Think really hard about it and make the choice. It's important to do what you want to do, but don't forget your capabilities and limitations. If you follow that, you should have fun in college.

Now for you current college students, non-freshmen to be exact, it's not too early to start looking for a decent internship. Perhaps you can even get something that will pay you. There will be places for you. Even if it's for a summer internship, it's not too early. I am looking for some right now as well.

Just some random advice to women:
This one is going to be really random, but for all you women drivers out there, don't ever go to a car dealership or auto shops alone. If there is something wrong with your car, take a reliable man with you. They will rip you off if you go alone. My sister almost got ripped off haha.

That's it for today. Happy Holidays and I will be back next week!

Hey guys, Andy here.

I haven't been able to write consistently since it's crunch time at school once again. All you current college students know exactly what I'm talking about. Finals start on Monday and it's getting hectic on my desk. All the work throughout the year is laid out for Economics and I am currently trying to stuff all this information into my head. This is definitely the time you sit back and wish that you had paid more attention in earlier classes haha.

By the way, for all you UML students...have you guys ever received a parking ticket? The word on the street is that they are going nuts on handing out parking tickets now. As if the parking fee wasn't enough, they are literally out there to hunt students down. Obviously, there probably was some fault on occasions, but sometimes, it's for a simple reason, like a claim over where certain students can park where. Like, if there weren't any parking spots on north, some commuters cannot park in closer areas due to what kind of student you are [commuter, resident, etc...]

I have never received one, so maybe I shouldn't be complaining/ranting, but many students have voiced their opinions out on this and perhaps the university should ease upon the harshness.

With that being said, I honestly have to go back to studying for Economics. It's been my weakness all year. I wish all of you good luck! And for all you high school students...good luck on your midterms as well! I'll write again soon!
Hey guys, Andy here with another blog.

I hope you guys had a good Thanksgiving break! It's a bit late, but the servers of the blog is down and I haven't been able to access it. Anyhow, mine was great. I love Thanksgiving. I'm definitely a food lover, so it's like heaven for me.

Which reminds me to mention what I am thankful for this year. I am thankful for my family and friends. I am also thankful that I have a chance to attend school and work toward my dreams. I am always appreciative of this fact. Never forget that there are students less fortunate than us! What are you guys thankful for?

I still need to take a picture of the buses to write my post on transportation. Just wait for it! I have to remember...haha.

I was going through my emails today and finally decided that I was going to write about UML Today. If you are a student here, then you get an email every weekday called UML Today. While it is a good source for accessing school news and events, most students just delete it. Why is that the case?

It's pretty simple really. The way the email organized, no one is going to read it! Think of like a grocery shopping list...with long headlines. No one is going to want to go through that. I mean there are some fun events in there, hiding, waiting for it to be read. The university can step up and change the format a bit, don't you guys agree?

I'm off to take my sociology "final." Wish me luck and I'll be back very soon!
