Lately, I’ve been watching more and more shows on Food Network. Including this one: No, I’m not following it actively, but I am watching episodes as they come up when I turn the TV to Food Network. I have to say…it is a very amusing show. For example, the episode I watched today involved two dishes: asian style noodles, and meatballs. Asian Style Noodles: The...
Do you remember...
when I posted about my three midterms? I did post about that, didn’t I? Well, anyway, after the midterms, I felt like I failed, aced, and did okay on them. Failed my finance midterm, aced my statistical computing midterm, and did okay on my time series regression midterm. Turns out…I was..mostly right. I did fail my finance midterm, but the professor curved the scores by 30%, which...
I’m currently on campus, waiting for my TA’s office hours so that I can ask her a question about the take home midterm. The model that I was able to calculate using SAS had a horrendous R- squared value and I wanted to know if there’s something I have to tweak or if that is the highest value I can get for this data set. Because I did try to use best subsets and stepwise...
I apparently have a message waiting for me at Tumblr, and its been there since…maybe…Wednesday? It’s starting to bother me, because whenever I click to view it, Tumblr tells me I have no messages. And yet, that little “1” is still showing next to “Messages.” Why? I want to know :[
A new attempt
Two days ago, I tried to make meringue cookies [chocolate chip flavored]. But I failed…because I forgot the sugar. Ridiculous, no? Meringues are basically egg whites and sugar, so how could I forget one of the most important ingredients? Anyway, they turned out pretty gross, and kind of salty. So yesterday, I tried again, and made sure to remember the sugar. After they came out of the...

Do you remember my post yesterday? The one where I said my contact lens wanted to continuously stab my eye? Well, apparently, my friend&roommate was right, there was a tear on it. And today, when I removed it from my eye, I saw the tear/rip, and thought it was an eyelash. Needless to say, I tried to gently remove it. And…tore my contact lens in two. So now I’m wearing glasses,...
my contact lens want to continuously stab my eye. Just my right contact. The left one is okay. I’m not sure why exactly, but it sure hurts >[ For some reason, they were perfectly fine for most of today, and then about five minutes into my drive back to the university, my right contact began to stab my eye. At first, it wasn’t too bad, I could tolerate it…but as time passed,...
I have three midterms coming up next week. Very sad, I know… Let’s see…I’m going to fail my corporate finance midterm. I’m going to fail my time series, regression, etc midterm. And I’m going to ace my statistical computing midterm. Spent a good 4 hours studying for corporate finance with my cousin [who happened to get an A+ when he took that course, with a...
square-enix: this girl on my facebook just posted: “did that guy who wrote lord of the rings copy stephenie meyer?!? it sure looks like it!!!!” and people wonder why i’m rarely on facebook yes…because Stephenie Meyer was about 5 years old when she wrote her books, and JRR Tolkien copied her work in the last year of his life -__- It makes perfect sense.
VERY long homework.
I have just spent about 8 hours of my life working on ONE homework assignment. Its not even a page long. But its Corporate Finance, and it took a VERY long time to figure out the solutions. I’m so tired now… normally, I’d be asleep by now, since I have an 8 AM class tomorrow, and its already 11:27 PM. What shall I do? …drink a gallon of coffee tomorrow morning.
