Hello! I would like to introduce you to the Modern German Film website I put together this term! Other people in the class helped locate some of the articles, and I put the rest together! I’m pretty happy about all the work we did! Enjoy! :)
Above is the link for my Modern Art History paper for this term:
It is based on the book Abstract Expressionism: Other Politics by Ann Eden Gibson.
I hope you enjoy it!
Hi Everybody! I thought I’d share my essay that I wrote for my Hitchcock class. We had to answer (in the essay) some questions posed by the instructor and fit it in under three pages! Here is a link to the PDF. Otherwise, you can just read the images I’ve posted below if you’d rather not read the PDF document. I hope you enjoy it! :)
Well, I had to buy yet another clicker for school! This one is for Physics class. So, I decided to make a clicker cozy for this one too. I got this cute fabric at spoonflower.com at this link: http://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/425256. I just love this cat with his glasses and sweater! :) He’s sure to help me get an A in Physics! haha! I wish! :)
Well, since I was making storage pocket things, I decided to make a calculator cozy for my TI-89. I also needed a place to hold extra batteries, because I’d rather not be in the middle of a test and have my calculator die with no back up batteries available. Yes! This does happen!
I’m still debating about adding the extra ribbons on top to secure the calculator, but I don’t know if it really needs it, because it fits pretty snug. I made this out of the Mars Martian fabric that I created. :) UPDATE: I decided to add the bows for closure. :)
So, for my Biology class that starts Fall term we have to use these iClicker devices (I’m assuming for taking quizzes or something). I bought a Hello Kitty tin to put it in, but I didn’t want it clunking around in there, so I made this iClicker fabric cozy for it out of a swatch of fabric that I had. The inside is lined with fleece so it is a bit heavier weight than just cotton fabric. :) Neat! Now I can be all kawaii in bio class! :) hehe UPDATE: I decided to put on some ribbons that when tied keep the clicker from falling out! :)
Hey Everybody! I’m really excited about this new show on TNT called “Perception.” http://www.tntdrama.com/series/perception/
It stars Eric McCormack (of Will & Grace fame) as a university professor, author and crime solver who is also living with schizophrenia! I’m always skeptical of depictions of people with mental illness on TV and in movies, because they usually make them out to be psychopathic killers or something. I’ve watched the first two episodes of the show so far, and I think they do an excellent job of making the character seem like a regular human being! It is so fantastic! They use the hallucinations as kind of a dramatic device and employ some other Beautiful Mind-esque devices to try to make it like the viewer can see what the character is seeing. Some commenters have argued that it doesn’t show the horrific aspects of schizophrenia enough, but I personally like that they are showing him to be a regular person, and an intelligent one at that! I like that they show him holding down a job, interacting with people socially, and using the help of other people to reality test. I’m excited to see how the character and the show develop and I hope it gets picked up for another season! Please check it out if you get a chance! Again, it is on TNT Monday nights.

I always get really excited when I start taking new classes, and this year is no exception! This summer I’m excited to take Calc 4, basically vector calculus and Mth256 which is Differential Equations! I’m excited and nervous! I hope things work out okay. I’m also excited about Fall term when I hope to at least take Chemistry and Biology and maybe Advanced Calculus! It might be too much to add the Advanced Calc class, but I really want to keep up with the math skills so I don’t forget it all!!! I’ve actually taken the first term of Chem and Bio before, but it was a long time ago when I wasn’t really doing all that well, and I didn’t really do the homework at that time. Anyway, it was so long ago that I pretty much forgot everything, so I’m going to take them again and hopefully get more into it this time and really understand everything! The unfortunate thing about Chem and Bio at my college is that they only start the sequence in the Fall, so if I want to take the whole year I need to start Fall term. I’m signed up, so I hope it works out! I will have to get up earlier than normal, so that is going to be a challenge that I hope I can tackle. Also, textbooks are ridiculously expensive, but the good thing about Chem and Bio is that they use the same books the whole year, so I’m only out of money for Fall term! I hope I can do it and not drop the classes! :)
This example almost made my brain explode! I didn’t know about the Weierstrass substitution method (see this link for more info.: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weierstrass_substitution) when I began this problem…which is what I needed to complete the problem. I’m still unsure if I did it correctly, because we were supposed to find the integral over 0 to 2*pi, but the integration method only works over 0 to pi, so I ended up multiplying the answer by 2 (because 2 times pi is 2*pi) which got me the answer the book was asking for, but it seemed odd to do it that way. The question is number 18, section 13.3 from the Jon Rogawski Calc book in case you are interested. I think it is a pretty great textbook by the way…I mean as far as math textbooks go! We were also supposed to find when the speed was at its max, but I was so tired I just figured it was at pi and gave up! So, here’s the problem!
