What is this forum so sudden and new?
I'm trying to figure out what to do now.

Mid-Term grades have more or less shaken me awake.

I've been far to lazy this semester and the slacking off is starting to show.

I may have to drop a class and pull a miracle out of my ass for a few others to keep my GPA from tanking.

Sigh. Guess I should cancel a few of my extracurriculars..

National and International Legal Institutions exam was this Thursday. Nervous about the scores; I do not want to read this subject again.

Is anybody really, really good at math?

How good do you mean?

I am having trouble understanding this stuff on convex cones. Actually there's a lot of stuff I'm having trouble understanding, but that's a good place to start.

I'm going to look at wikipedia because it's usually pretty accessible. I'm pretty lost in this class.

So...yeah.
Wow. I think I did that in school. Years and Years and Years ago. Maybe. I didn't really pay attention to maths much, back then.

Metabolic analysis. Apparently cellular metabolism can be modeled by cones. It probably doesn't help that we're relating unfamiliar mathematical concepts to unfamiliar biology concepts.

I emailed my professor and told him that I have no idea what the fuck is going on.

Is studying abroad a good idea? I live in chile and want to be the best at math, but i'm not sure if studying abroad will get me closer to my goal. Or if it is a good idea at all.

Studying abroad is a very valuable experience in general. I'm...not sure how it relates to maths.

My study abroad experience has not been very good.

Speaking of which — it's a bad idea to bring computers into hostels, right?

[up][up][up] Yo, fellow Chilean college student here. I'm in Católica. It's pretty damn good.

@montmorencey: I should have explained. I'm not sure, but i've heard that education in chile is not as good as other countries.

@ninety:i'm in my last year of school.

Well, the private universities aren't that good. But UC and U Ch can offer you as good an education as almost any other country — and a better one than all but the best.

Finals week! I'm about to leave for school right now, and basically stay there all day for most of the week.

Damn you! Things just got worse for me,I'm literally working on 3 projects now. And the only class I'm sure I'm passing is the Creative Writing one,...probably Stagecraft to. The rest I'm very pessimistic about.

I think I'm finally managing to wrap my head around the Fourier transform.

It's just improvisation, really. Use every trick in the mathematical bag, and don't be intimidated too easily if a problem doesn't fit into any standard situations at first sight.

Good lord, it feels so good to be back to State Administration Law II after all that international law. I want to hug my red book of Norwegian laws and never let go.

Also, the lecturer is really good and has a very comfortable style of lecturing. waii

That feeling when you just sit down and start your test only for a classmate to have an accident postponing the whole thing a day.

I was totally psyched for it too. Now it's kinda like having to sit it twice.

Stagecraft project Part 1 was a disaster,and I'm equally swamped with Part 2

I have to top that with a Math project,and an Enlightenment essay,and a Mid-term tommorrow. FUUUUUUUUUUUUUCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK- KKKKK!

Ah,that feels a little better to get out the system.
