Engineering Tips from a Math unfortunate

Yeah yeah Guten Tag! for some of the humans and aliens who are wondering about my whereabouts in this so called planet “Earth”, let me tell you a story…

Due to some major migrations by my loving parents, I was required to leave my elyen pals toneh, dex, kimmy and etc to follow them in the last frontier of the Philippines Palawan.

That means that I restarted my life since I’m in a new place, new school, new course and new people. WAAAAH! People! I really suck when it comes to making friends since I’m an awkward person with weird likes but luckily I managed to survive.

Speaking of school, I decided to have the most YOLO decision in my life so far and that is to enter engineering school and get the course rarest course that they offer which is Petroleum Engineering. You might ask me why YOLO, well, for some who doesn't know I’m a former Communication Arts Student and it only means that mathematics is really not my ace.

Now let’s get to the point of this blog post. So this is about some of my tips for incoming freshmen that will enter Engineering School since I entered one without having any idea of what to do.

(trust me, my first days sucked big time, I even cried)

  1. To avoid wasting fare, sleep and effort. Always know the school activities, holidays, happenings and schedules. (I went to my university 3 consecutive days without even knowing that there’s no classes.) 
  2.   You have an Engineering drawing subject? Have your drawing stuff prepared! Such as T-square, canister, Triangles (The BIG ones, I got scolded for buying a small one), pens and more (just look at the photo below.) when the first time I entered drawing room I was like, what the hell are those stuff? I was not informed that we need those!                            WARNING: those drawing stuff are kind of expensive so if you can borrow from your friends, enemies or any love ones please do.
    3. (THIS TIP IS OPTIONAL AND IT DEPENDS TO YOUR PROFESSOR IF HE/SHE WILL ALLOW IT) As we all know technical pens are quite expensive, it ranges from Php. 400 and above (not sure) so I recommend using “Unipin” it’s a lot cheaper (it only cost Php. 60) and it works almost as good as Tech pen. the good thing about it, is it’s waterproof and smudge proof. I'm currently using 0.1 and 0.6. and of course if there are good thing there are also cons of this product
  •  it is way more thicker than technical pen (the 0.1 of unipin is as thick as the 0.3 of unipin. there is a 0.05 one but i don't have it) but with right handling and usage it’ll not be a problem.

  • some of the professors don’t allow the usage of unipin. (like I said this tip is optional  )
4.    if dogs are man’s best friend, calculators are engineer’s best friend. Always have your calculator with you and Absolutely do not remove it from your bag (you don’t know when you’ll need it) but if ever you forgot it always have a backup on your smartphone or tablet, there are loads of scientific calculator apps in the app store and it doesn’t occupy a lot of space unlike your games and selfie apps, so installing one won’t hurt. I remember when my boyfriend (who is also an engineering student… ಠ_ಠ stop looking at me like that I’ll save that story for next time) saw my calculator for the first time, it was a basic 2 line display casio scientific calculator (I’m a former Com. Arts student remember so I didn’t even need something that is more than basic) and he was like “you can’t survive engineering with that kind of calculator blablablahh”

I was complaining, saying that it’s too expensive to buy a new one. Then when our trigonometry class started I realized that he was right. It’s kinda hard to follow the discussion if your calculator only shows decimal answers, and using 3 line display calculators are more convenient. so if you’re going to buy a calculator, do buy a 3 line display one, yes it’s expensive but you’re going to use it for a really long time so think of it as your investment. but of course LEARN HOW TO USE IT.

  5. Always study in advance. (This tip is an irony for me but trust me you’ll need it)

      I remember crying on the first meeting of our chemistry class because I failed our first meeting pop quiz miserably. So the time you receive the list of your subjects do review your majors and take note of the important details such as formulas, constants and what so ever, so if ever you will have a pop quiz at least you know something.

  6.  Don’t be afraid to ask. If you don’t get or know something such as do we have classes tomorrow? What is the formula again? Can you give me the exact value of the constant? Can I have “insert prof’s name here” mobile number? at least you can cope up. Don't worry There are tons of people out there that are willing to help you. You don’t know maybe some of them might become your close friend or special someone. (ಠ_ I said stop looking at me like that!) and of course if someone needs your help do not hesitate to help them too. :)

 7. Always Pray. With hard work God’s guidance anything is possible.
   For the incoming engineering freshmen i hope you learned something from this random post and GOODLUCK!~

my yaoi addiction, is it weird?

Yaoi is a slang meaning 'boys love' or homosexuality that is used in the japanese language.

the story starts when i was in grade 6 i'm like super addicted to the anime "Naruto Shippuden" then suddenly the group called the akatsuki popped out, i think there were 10 members that time, they're divided into five because each pairs are assigned to different villages, then suddenly one pair caught my eyes they're sasori and deidara or in short Sasodei i really think they look so cute with each other.
deidara (blonde) and sasori (redhead)

ever since then my yaoi addiction went moooore contagious, since i'm also a kpop fan my yaoi addiction also affects my otps!
jongkey and 2min seriously these pairs drove me crazy for a couple of years

 i'm shipping tons of more yaoi couples such as sebaciel, grelliam, ritsu x takano, yukina x kisa, i can't enumerate them all because if i do that this post might take centuries to be finished but i just want to share about my current favorite couple from Hetalia: Axis Powers tenenentenen~ USUK!!! they're so cute~ their love-hate relationship is just sooo adorable although i'm shipping tons of couple from hetalia this couple really got the 1st place on my list
USUK (Alfred F. Jones "America" & Arthur Kirkland "Great Britain")

due to my yaoi addiction i became a person who is fond of reading in fact that i spend most my time in reading fanfictions and doujinshi and start to write my own story which really helped me a lot, it also boost my imagination and creativity. :)

being a yaoi fangirl for 6 years i already encountered tons of reactions from other people some of them thinks it's kawaii and cool some of them (especially the homophobics) thinks it's yucky, weird, improper. well i don't have anything against them, they said "you can't please everybody" so i just respect the beliefs and opinions of everyone. :)

so, back to my question, do you think my yaoi is weird?
