"I'm fine. I'm Fine!"

5 Thoughts Everyone Has In Their Elementary Statistics Class

As a part of my department's requirements, I have to take an Elementary Statistics class in order to receive a NYS initial teaching certification. Since I happen to want that certification, guess who's enrolled in MTH 207-Elementary Statistics? Yup, you guessed it! This girl!

Math is kind of weird for me because I actually really enjoy the abstract reasoning of it, it seems to randomly make sense in my mind (probably because I'm weird). Nonetheless, this class is tough! Have you ever been in a class and thought to yourself, "Yeah, I've got this. It totally makes sense". And then, when you're working on the homework later that night you understand absolutely nothing?I know the feeling!

My professor knows me very well because I've been to his office at least ten times already and we are constantly emailing each other. Thank goodness for patient and kind professors!

Here are five memes that are quite possibly the most accurate representations of my relationship with my stats class:

1. That iconic moment when Ross said, "I'm fine".

This is usually the response I give to people after my stats class is over on Monday, Wednesday, & F.riday I am really trying to hold it together but I just can't. Here comes the squeaky voice.

2. Waiting to go into my professor's office and prefacing the meeting by saying the following:

3. Don't forget to sketch graphs!

We've been assigned three homework assignments thus far and it's week seven but each assignment is sneaky. It looks like it'll be short and sweet but really, each question has between 3 and 6 parts so it's actually going to consume the rest of your week (and life).

4. Just to be clear, I'm Woody and Buzz is my professor.

5. Nothing is stored in my brain!

This is surely the truth! It makes sense in class but come test day, nothing is stored in my brain! Thanks to my wonderfully kind and down-to-earth professor, we get to have a cheat sheet during the test for special formulas. THANK YOU SIR.

I'll be honest, the class is intimidating and there are so many concepts to learn, but with my professor, it's been a great experience...for now. I'm sure in the next few weeks I will feel differently about all of this.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
