Saturday, August 15, 2009 nothing but...

Lately, I am having another lecturer, an Indian lecturer, that speaks with a slang. This is the third lecturer so far that speaks like this. What I mean by a slang?

First : A sentence that has "is nothing but" in between. Eg. This equation is nothing but Ns = ......

Second : circuit is pronounced as cir-cute.

Third : The letter "A" is pronounced as "yay".

Fourth : Anything with the letter "r" is sort of highlighted. Others are sort of monotone.

Fifth : Takes a breath to speak 2-3 sentences.

I am not racist or anything but this type of thing interests me the way their mother tongue influences the way they speak. Some international lecturer also have a slang. Then the problem with students (well bcoz most of the students in MMU is chinese) is that they themselves have their slang. So everybody is like an alien to anybody else.

Someone once told me...

Knowledge is obtained through your own effort and hard work. Keep it up!

"A's" are for God, "B's" are for lecturers, "C's" are for students and "F's" are for animals.

A good leader will always be the first person to arrive and the last person to leave.

Try to smile no matter what, cause you never know when your smile could lighten up someone's day as well as it will lighten up mine.

There are two types of leader, "THE EFFECTIVE - result based without considering the procedure" and "THE EFFICIENT - procedure based without considering the results"

Success is not Final and Failure is not Fatal

Original version
"If it doesn't kills you, it will only make you stronger"
My version
"CHARGE!!! unless you are dead..."

The medium of transfer is not what matters, it's the value of the content!

This is what I told myself: Bullshit lecturer + Insufficient notes = YOU ARE SCREWED!

Share knowledge because it multiplies, dont share money because it divides.
