Stray Thoughts: Study Session

It is a known and annoying fact that our minds divert their attention to somewhere else that isn’t school-related whenever we try to study. While I was studying for the prefinal exam of a certain midyear class, my mind kept going to places that don’t involve standard errors, regression analyses, and the like.

This is a series of thoughts that popped up in my mind while I was doing an intense study session for an exam. They may not make sense to you, but this wasn’t written for you, anyway.

My admiration for my professor is different in a way that his looks aren’t the main factor; it’s his seemingly effortless ability to make number-hating students like me love (and love to understand) something as complicated as statistics. Seriously, it’s crazy, but my brain loved learning about the topic. This is what makes an amazing teacher.


Before completely falling asleep earlier in the afternoon, as I lay in my bed, my mind was unconsciously blurting out the formula for the standard error of proportion, which is √[(P(P-1))÷(n)]. I can’t believe that I almost dreamt of a formula.

Stray Thoughts: Age of Ultron

Despite the lack of time that I have to watch new films in the cinema because of school work, I was still able to squeeze Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron in my schedule. Something you should know: I haven’t read any of the comics, so I can’t really compare the film to them.

This is a series of thoughts that popped up in my mind while I was watching the film. Obviously, there are —MAJOR SPOILERS— below the cut, so proceed with caution (or don’t proceed at all).

 

Wow, it has only been five seconds since the film started and there’s already a fighting scene. That’s awesome. I can’t help but notice that the scenes are full of CGI, though (but what the hell do I expect, the actors actually doing the stunts?).

Stray Thoughts: February Fair

Every year in February, the university holds a week-long event called the February Fair, or Feb Fair for short. It holds mini concerts and booths of various organizations/fraternities/sororities at the Freedom Park, which is awesome and all, but the food section is what attracts me the most.

This is a series of thoughts that popped up in my mind while I was at the fair. they may not make sense to you, but this wasn’t written for you, anyway.

I look to my left, and then to my right. I stare at the people in front of me and glance at the back from time to time. My eyebrows furrow. Ew, I thought as I witness couples holding hands and showing PDAs around me. It was a carnival for all ages, but it seemed more like a dating spot for me.


They say that the Ferris wheel is a popular attraction for the couples (or those who want to be a couple, I guess) and I can understand why, since I’ve seen a lot of romantic movies that romanticized Ferris wheels (add Divergent to the list, though it’s not really a romantic film). But holy crap, when I saw this Ferris wheel, I was surprised;
