The excuse for my C average in Calculus, which then turned into a W


Never skip a semester on math. I learn this the hard way. I was playing ‘catch up’ on my first Calculus class this Fall 2010 semester. I had taken Pre-Cal the Fall of 2009 and decided to take a break from math after that mind trip. Didn’t realized Calculus was an even bigger journey. Please dont try this stunt and continue your math series if you are planning on doing anything serious with Engineering. Another tip: learn your TI-89 very well. If your instructor lets you use it, it can be an advantage. I realized that if I knew some of the functions I know now, I could have done much better on my first two tests. Another thing I found out a little too late was the existence of Wolframalpha, man is this site powerfull. So take note, this might help you survive first year Calculus.

New Leaf Drinks

I rarely buy anything that Lebed sends out, but I do like when he brings out a green pick every now and then. This one is of particular interest to me since I have seen these drinks in Whole Foods and must say they are tasty. I like their website too! I will probably invest in the Co.

An American Wins the New York City Marathon!

Yes!, since I been in the US, it is the first time I hear that an American won the NYC Marathon. Last time an American won was back in 1982. It was great to hear that someone other than an African won this event.  This guy averaged 4.96 Minutes per Mile.. wow!. Congratulations to Meb Keflezighi.

Share Florida

Found this Rally video for “Share a Little SunShine” by the folks at Sparks Studios and though it was great. I Love Florida =)

I really like Sparks overall design and philosophy. So much creativity! I rarely find Design/Web studios close to me, so I was surprise to know they are right here at home.

Rally Video

A week-long video shoot captured Floridians across the state showing their support to help build a grass-roots following. See the video at ShareaLittleSunshine.org

New Home Owner

I think I have finally finish my search for a house. I fell in love with this beautiful home when I saw it on Tuesday. The same day I decided to make the bank an offer. This morning at approximately 10:02 am my Realtor called me and gave me the news that they have accepted. My face lit up upon hearing this. I made several calls in the following order Wife–>Mother–>Friend. It is a great feeling to be done with the house hunting process. I am very excited about this :)
