A free woman. She is there minding her own business… …   A minute not too soon, I pass by. It is out of my control. I feel like this: Taylor Swift is making a statement about this phenomenon when she titles her album Red. It is a subliminal message to her future lover telling him to charge. Taylor Swift pines for a BIG BAD MAN to run after her…

Bey or Tay

Bey: Samantha wants her space to be invaded. She wants to feel her invader. Aaron moves in with his powerful cannon and fires away. Tay: Samantha studies the invasions of Alexander the Great. Aaron researches the artillery systems of WWI. They take every class they can together.   Bey or Tay? (I voted Bey this time) Or both (BeyTay)? Please submit your vote in the comment box below.   (Note:…

Laptop in lap at a UCLA library, over the top edge of my screen is a student with her notebook, nails painted a light blue. Behind this screen, she is perched on a chair, studying away. I love writing about her. She just undid her gentle braid, her hair flowing to one side over her left shoulder.   Her silken forehead indents the brilliant body of her paragraph. However, her body…

Triumph cars are obsolete. This one is special. It is hot inside and out. At the press of a button, the interior of the car will heat up to 550°F (while the body will remain safe to touch). I bake cookies and breads out of it. When its windows are opened, the car doubles as an outdoor heater. One cold winter day, wearing a Zetex fire entry suit, I drove…

MMJ

4/20 is coming up. And yes, this is true. MMJ stands for “medical marijuana.” Maybe one day, MMJ will also come to be known as “Marry Me Juliet.” But until then, you, the reader, are welcome to get high on this blog anytime you feel fit.

9:30 am Sometimes I feel worrisome and alone. I think of a fish lost in the sea, like Nemo in “Finding Nemo.” Sometimes I feel carefree and full of joy. Right now, I am tired and sleepy. But I must “just keep swimming,” and go to my classes. What would really wake me up is…   12 pm TAKING A QUIZ. That’s right I just got out of one now,…

On the second day of class, we studied proofs by “mathematical induction.” First, you show that something is true for a “base” case (usually n=1 case). Then, assuming something is true for the nth case, you must show it is also true for the n+1th case. Finally, by induction, you have proved something is true for all possible cases (ad infinitum). Induction allows one to make generalizations from specific cases.…

I think of a man and a woman trying to push their way through a tight crowd. He and she are moving toward each other. But the crowd is too much, and they end up losing sight of one another. But they push hard, guess which way is best to move, and hope they did good.  And when no one else is around, the man and the woman behave the…

Tonight Bernie’s girlfriend visited us. Bernie (not actually his name) is one of my 3 roommates. Bernie’s girlfriend is beautiful. Bedroom A is where I live. Bedroom B is where Bernie lives. Tonight, after his roommate left for the weekend, Bernie slept with his girlfriend (again). Here is a picture I drew while sitting in the living room that separates bedroom A (mine) from bedroom B (Bernie’s). I drew it…
