A challenge I encountered is the problem of taking one of my hardest classes, discrete math. I am overcoming this by prioritizing on what will help me the most. Basically, this means not doing frivolous work and spreading myself too thin. Instead, I study less material but absorb the material I do study more.

BLOG 1: RESEARCH

BLOG 1: RESEARCH

I was surprised by how tedious the research practice is. However,  Adam only gave examples of the Michigan research process which might be more rigorous than a conventional research process.

I had the misconception that research was a lot duller than it really is. Hearing the passion Adam spoke with about his research really swayed my mind.

 

I do think that research would fit into my career. Though my careers would not be very science heavy, presumably. As a consultant, I see myself doing a significant amount of market research. As an investment banker, I can see myself doing a great deal of financial research before I go ahead with my analysis. That being said, as a consumer of the more conventional scientific research, I will be greatly benefited.

END OF THE SEMESTER REFLECTION

END OF THE SEMESTER REFLECTION

U of M has certainly been a very exciting experience. The freedom to budget my own time has played a huge role in this and overall the college experience has been a maturation experience. Michigan is a testament to academic excellence, pushing students to work intelligently and efficiently. The academics have proven not to stop in class, rather professors and lecturers alike work to ensure that their teachings are applicable to the real world as well. While challenging at times they are great for learning, I think I am doing well as far as grades go but should make an effort to apply what I learn in class more to the real world.

 

Apart from the academics, U of M fosters a highly energized student body that provides a plethora of activities and experiences. From clubs to activities there is no shortage of things to do on campus. Integrating the advice of others and the learnings from what I did correctly or incorrectly this semester will give me a leg up in trying to join some of these organizations next semester.

 

Overall it has been an exciting semester and I look forward to another successful one next year!

Week 8 – Death, Dying, Religion & Spirituality

Week 8 – Death, Dying, Religion & Spirituality

Death is something that is inevitable. It is something that all of us have to face and something all of us have to go through. Whatever comes after death is unknown to us although most of us may have some ideas. The only thing that we know for certain is our impact on the world and how people remember us. How we want people to remember us differs greatly from person to person.

Personally, I want to be remembered as someone who creates a positive, sustainable impact on the world and possibly more than just our world…? I believe that innovation is the way to go about creating this positive impact. I feel this would be the best way to be remembered because it won’t just be the next generation who remembers you, but since it is sustainable, your legacy will be sustained for generations.

I hope to be remembered by many people but not for just being rich and famous.

I I do not have a specific thing that I want to be remembered for; I’m still figuring that part out, partly through HSSP!

I don’t have something that I only want my family to remember me though.

 

 

How would you want to be remembered?
