I was planning on posting my FRQ’s ( free response questions ) that I’m currently doing.. for some motivation and debates. So I could learn a little more, haha.
I took it last year haha. I don’t think I remember much.
Anyways, I don’t really understand the question (key characteristics ?) but wouldn’t you use a controlled study to determine the specific, single variable of interest ? So .. wouldn’t that be the key characteristic ?
Well, I’m assuming it’s asking us how would we use a “case study” / “correlational study” / “Experiment” to conduct the study ( which would be, taking vitamin j and improving memory )
-_- wow. that was one of the questions on the AP psych exam ..here hope this helps,
“Regret comes in all shapes and sizes. Some are small like when we do a bad thing for a good reason. Some are bigger like when you let down a friend. Some of us escape the pain of regret because we’re looking forward to the future. Sometimes we have to fight to come to terms with the past, and sometimes we bury our regrets by promising to change your own ways. But, our biggest regrets are not for the things we did- but, for the things we didn’t do. Things we didn’t say that could’ve save someone that we care about. Especially when we can see the dark storm that’s headed their way.”—Lucas Scott
Life is amazing when you get the cahnce to take a deep breathe and see whats around us.
Happy birthday Nicole. I had a blast with your family and lil ryan today at chuckie cheese. About to go speak at a meeting, but wanted to post up some pictures i took. I really enjoyed the weather today. Spent the morning at home by myself, since the family was out buying supplies and what not. I got a chance to sit on top of my roof and view my neighborhood and just listen to the wind blow and the trees russle as time just passed by for a few minutes.
Our resentments caused us discomfort. We relived unpleasant experiences again and again in our minds. We were angry about things that happened and kept a mental grudge list. We regretted the clever things we had not said and planned retaliation that may or may not have taken place. We were obsessed with the past and the future and therefore cheated ourselves of the present.
“I want you to know it’s a little fucked up that I’m stuck here waitin’, no longer debatin’. Tired of sittin’ and hatin’ and makin’ these excuses, for why you’re not around, and feeling so useless. It seems one thing has been true all along, you don’t really know what you’ve got ‘til it’s gone.”—Fort Minor
To be truly humble is to accept and honestly try to be ourselves.
It’s 4:00AM in the morning and i have no idea why i can’t sleep tonight. :| I decided since I’m up I’ll upload the pictures of recent activity and a sneak peek at my new project I’m working on.
I call it 365 note cards. I bought a few packets of index cards and i will fill up 365 index cards with quotes, phrases, or sayings. I haven’t decided if i was going to give them out as i do them or wait till i’m all finished with 365 of them. I made 5 out of 365. Long ways to go. Just something to pass time by and keep me positive.
Happy Holidays to everyone.
Growing up, Thanksgiving was a holiday i always spent with family, but never really enjoyed to the fullest because i didn’t want to be there. I rather be out with friends drinking and doing drugs. Today i am very grateful that i have the quality time to spend with my family. I enjoy every minute of it, even though its not always perfect. Yesterday was spent by staying at home and sharing some time with mom and then heading over to my aunts to have some korean bbq ribs! :) I’m asian, thats how we roll! haha. Football and some ribs with my uncles; can’t ask for anything else.
Today- i caught a movie with my best friend. We watched `Michael Jackson: This Is It`. I must say, I’m not a hardcore fan, but i knew that MJ created some great music. The movie/documentary really portrayed how humble he is and how big his heart is. It’s really sad that he passed away. He was a very creative individual and I’m sure him and his music will never be forgotten.
Happy Birthday to my lil cousin Jeremy. I’m sure Astro-boy will come to your birthday next year. My brother and I decided to make cupcakes to bring to our Thanksgiving potluck :D And right before Thanksgiving break, i received some new T-shirts :) . Have a safe holiday! Finals are coming up, time to study again. School is really kicking my ass.
“She asked me a question that shes asked many times before… she was always a little insecure… you always are when your in love. ” Was it all worth it? falling in love with me? ” and i always responded with the same answer ” every single thing ” this meant the happy moments, the sad moments, the arguments, the i hate you, to the i love you, to where i can’t breathe with you. i look up to see the look on her face, but remembered that she is nothing but a painful yet an everlasting euphoric memory, and i now remember more clearly why i hand pick these flowers…”—bare-e.tumblr.com
Shes like a melody in my head that i can't keep out. o
Got me singing like na na na everyday.
Its raining fantastic Friday. New moon came out and watched it last night with my semi mom. hahaha Wasted hours of sleep. Don’t understand the hype around that vampire stuff. I used to think vampires were blood sucking monsters that came out on Halloween to take their next victims. Not sparkling humans with a very romantic side.
1967 Mustang. My friend/classmates car. I only had my standard lenses on me. Hopefully we’ll be able to get together next week for some better shots. :) So many other components that make cars like this well worth the money. What happen to quality instead of quantity? When the population got demanding and started lowering their own standards for quality products.
Anyways, schools ending soon. Got to registered. :D. 22 units next quarter. Its going to kick my ass. -__- Hopefully i can keep up. I probably will. I can’t wait for the PacMac and Pretty Boy fight. It’ll be a good one. Oh yeah Tiesto this weekend with some friends. Rave + no drugs or alcohol = i’ll let you know Sunday. Time to go to Kaiser and visit grandma. Have a dry/warm/great weekend.
A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, he wordlessly picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.
The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.
The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with an unanimous “yes.”
The professor then produced two cups of coffee from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar effectively filling the empty space between the sand. The students laughed.
“Now,” said the professor as the laughter subsided, “I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life.
The golf balls are the important things—your family, your children, your health, your friends and your favorite passions—and if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full.
The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house and your car.
The sand is everything else—-the small stuff. If you put the sand into the jar first,” he continued, “there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls.
The same goes for life. If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff you will never have room for the things that are important to you.
Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play with your children. Take time to get medical checkups. Take your spouse out to dinner. Play another 18. There will always be time to clean the house and fix the disposal. Take care of the golf balls first—the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.”
One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the coffee represented. The professor smiled. “I’m glad you asked. It just goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem, there’s always room for a couple of cups of coffee with a friend.”
Finally bought a new MacBook Pro. :) I’m starting to like PC though; windows 7 has been good to me lately. hahaha. I can’t wait to get my photoshop and illustrator installed tonight. Been tired lately. All my lil siblings have the flu or cold. hahaha Kids with germs and boogers. Tiesto next saturday + lil jeremy’s birthday. Hopefully i’ll be able to balance all that at the same time.
I had a crazy dream last night though. Drugs and my dad were apart of it. haha woke up feeling really confused. Nothing i can’t solve today. Well i gotta download all this new software. Nights!
Ahhh. The sky has been beautiful lately. Been messing around with my camera to get a feel for how I’m shooting. The T1i is different from the 40D. Still managing. :) I’m going to start drifting away and going back to Blog spot with my photo blog. If i get used to the blog spot i think I’ll be away for a while. But i really dig Tumblr’s quotes and photo quotes. Keeps me going sometimes. Go Sharks! Woot Woot! Anyways short blog. Gotta go bake some cupcakes. :D Nights!
“… But it’s hard to stay mad, when there’s so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once, and it’s too much, my heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst… And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can’t feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life.”—American Beauty (via littlemiss)
