Last days of November =)

Hey Chicago!! (11/30/12)

This is my angry bird face:

While grocery shopping with my UIC friends at the Target on Roosevelt and Canal.

I forgot to mention, for “No shave November,” I actually didn’t cut my hair as opposed to typically getting short haircuts. Right now, my hair is at its longest. The only thing I don’t like about it is morning hair — I look like a freaking rock star haha.

Pic of the Week: Submitted by RA Christian

Combined two programs: Cards for Kids & Cats, Chats and Chews

Fellow residents and RAs eating ice cream while making cards.

So the pictures above are submitted by TBH RA Christian. The purpose of the program was to meet residents, RAs and faculty and create cards for kids staying in the hospital for the holidays. There were more than 15 cards created and personalized with stickers, glitter and heartfelt messages.

So this week, I have finished my CME 396 project and now will be working on my remaining projects. As I advance higher in my major, I realize they assign more group projects in order for us to work together and learn about group dynamics. So if there’s one pearl I can offer, it would be that I would advise anyone to be a team player in any situation that arises. This skill will help you, not only in these projects, but also in your career as you graduate college.

I remember reading an article these past few months on studying habits. They say that if you listen to familiar episodes/movies/music you will enhance your memorization, concentration and motivation to continue studying. So here it is, I decided to do movies instead.

=====================================

Top 3 List: Favorite Study Time Movies of All Time!

3. “Sixteen Candles” - Surprisingly, I have seen this movie enough times that it won’t bother me as I study. It doesn’t require a lot of attention and not very noisy when it comes to studying.

2. ”The Simpsons Movie” - I have pretty much memorized every single line in this movie. Not a bother but relaxing to listen to.

1. “Make Love, Not Warcraft” from South Park - I feel like this episode makes me study as I “train” for a test. It’s kind of weird, but I like to listen to this episode as I study. =P

So enjoy the remainder of the fall semester everyone! Wish you all the best for studying,

-Darren
