i saw my reflection

boots from aldo, socks from spring, dress from  va va by joy han, sweater from joe fresh styles.



This won't interest majority of my readers, but if anyone who reads this goes to U of M, and for recording sake...I'm going to do a quick review of my classes/professors so far. Mind you it has only been two weeks.
1. Elements of Discrete Mathematics. 
Professor: Michelle Pamela Davidson
Lab Instructor: Eric Ens
Basically, I hate this class. The Prof has good intentions but her classes are unorganized and she doesn't explain 'steps' well enough. She doesn't organize the material. I went to see her during office hours for help, and she was great one-on-one. Material is very hard. The Lab Instructor...well, I don't like him. He didn't really try to further our understanding. He skipped past "easy questions" (which I didn't understand) to do "fun, challenging" ones. He didn't do the questions in the same manner as we were taught, used a lot of "guess work" with no explanation. Only had one lab though, I'll try not to judge him too much yet haha.















France, Louis XIV and the Enlightenment
Professor: Erik Macdonald Thomson
I enjoy this class so far. Some of the words he uses go right over my head, but that's what learning is all about right? Hah. The reading isn't extensive, assignments are reasonable. We have our first source discussion tomorrow, which I'm looking forward to. He seems very friendly and approachable. Energetic.

Human Evolution
Shirley J Lee
At first I dreaded this course because I'm not really all that interested in anthropology, but so far it is really good and interesting. She is also quite friendly and seems easy to talk to. Explains things very well, asks for class opinions, etc. Put notes online. There's a group project which I'm not looking forward too, but oh well, it's only one.

Introduction to Calculus
Darja Kalajdzievska
I had almost lost all hope for humanity and math alike, until I started this class! She's seriously amazing. Young, friendly, clear, concise. She goes through every step with detail, and makes sure everyone understands before continuing. I actually understand everything so far. She seems to care a lot that we succeed. Reminds me of my highschool math teachers.

The Medieval World
Gerald Quinlan Bowler
This course is continuation from last semester, but I thought I would talk about it anyways. The Professor is hilarious and always has interesting opinions/stories to tell us about. Regards us as "truth-seekers" haha. Very satirical and sarcastic, speaks slow enough to let us take notes; unfortunately I sometimes fall asleep because his voice is so rhythmic haha. 


XO.

  4. You are adorable. The bow dress is so cute on you. Your college classes sound very intriguing, particularly the Louis VIX and the Enlightenment course. I hope your Discrete Mathematics class gets better along the way.

  12. hey :)
    i go to the u of m too, and i took intro to calc last year.
    my prof is weird, but one thing you *need* even if you like your prof is the grant's tutoring book. i really didn't get my prof, so i pretty much learnt the whole course from grant's. i loooved it, and hands down best $80 i've ever spent on a "study guide" (grant's is so much more). maybe you have it already, but you can also order it through the digital copy center.
    best of luck,
    courtney.

  15. You seem cozy!
    I'm glad I'm not the only person that has to trudge through snow. In reading about your courses, believe me, I feel your pain regarding mathematics. In my hydroclimatology class my professor just says equations out loud and briefly explains them or tells us to look it up! No examples and no visuals.
    It's terrible.
    I'm hoping I can just teach myself from the textbook.

  26. So cute, I love the colours, but OMG aren't you freezing in this weather?
    I had a class with Dr. Shirley Lee last term and she is SUPER nice. If you need ANY help, go talk to her; she's really understanding and very easygoing.
