Nicole Ricken commented on Saimithra Mannuru's blog post English or math-Which Would You Rather Choose?
"This is a great post! For some reason I find myself to enjoy math and English equally. I love the abstract and creative aspect of English and the structured and logical aspect of math. Perhaps it helps me balance both hemispheres of my brain!…"

Lindsey DeFilippo commented on Saimithra Mannuru's blog post English or math-Which Would You Rather Choose?
"I am not a math person. I agree, I used to love math. I would look forward to adding, subtracting, etc. But now I think of it as useles... Sure we need basic math skills, but who really needs to know the log of 4? As for English, I love it. I love…"

Austin Hancock commented on Saimithra Mannuru's blog post English or math-Which Would You Rather Choose?
"I can't really say I like one subject over the other. I think that part of me appreciates the logic of math, but I also love the way English allows me to get credit for writing out what I believe something means. "

Arial Nieberding commented on Saimithra Mannuru's blog post English or math-Which Would You Rather Choose?
"I have always been an English person. Maybe that's due to the subjective aspect of the class which generally leads to me brushing off criticism and convincing myself that the critic "just doesn't understand my creativity".…"

Brian Lin commented on Saimithra Mannuru's blog post English or math-Which Would You Rather Choose?
"Personally I am more of a math person but I have to agree that English is a whole lot easier than math. In English, there are an infinite number of interpretations to  a work and you can take it any way you wish. But with, math there is usually…"

Kylie Hess commented on Saimithra Mannuru's blog post English or math-Which Would You Rather Choose?
"I personally think Math is easier. For math there is always a correct answer so therefore you never have to improve upon it. Unlike English, "everything can always be improved" according to my teacher. Math is also more memorization than…"

Joy Kim commented on Saimithra Mannuru's blog post English or math-Which Would You Rather Choose?
"I'm more of a math person and personally think English is a bit harder. As you said, English is meant to be analyzed by readers and has no right answer. I enjoy reading because it's relaxing, but I don't always look forward to writing…"

"I am definitley a math lover. I actually enjoy doing math homework. When I learn a new math lesson in class, it's really easy for me to understand the concept. Memorizing formulas and rules is very easy. I like English because you get to…"

A Walk To Remember (Nicholas Sparks)

     NO SPOILERS, DON'T WORRY!          Now, I've heard a lot about Nicholas Sparks books. Some girls say they're adorable, and you get very attached to the characters as you're reading. Other girls say it's too sappy and lovey-dovey for their taste.  Notice I didn't tell you what guys have said about these books. I have yet to find a guy who reads Nicholas Sparks books.  But please, if you're a guy reading this blog post, I hope you are also convinced to read one of his books after I'm done.…See More

Melissa Peisker commented on Saimithra Mannuru's blog post English or math-Which Would You Rather Choose?
"I'm relatively good at both subjects, but English is by far my favorite. And it's not because it's easier to get questions right, or just because I hate math. For me math is basically memorizing a bunch of formulas and forgetting them…"

Amy Pine commented on Saimithra Mannuru's blog post Confessions of a Bookacholic- a tribute to Sophie Kinsella
"I have never read a Sophie Kinsella book, but those who have seem to love them. I tend toward darker themes in novels, but I may have to check her out for some feel good lit. I always like a good love story too. I admit that I did see this movie and…"

Olivia Youman commented on Saimithra Mannuru's blog post English or math-Which Would You Rather Choose?
"I definitely enjoy English more than Math. In English, people get to express themselves and be creative. In Math, we have to follow certain rules to get exact answers. Even when you follow the right guide lines, you can still get a problem wrong…"

Confessions of a Bookacholic- a tribute to Sophie Kinsella

Posted on March 19, 2012 at 6:03pm 1 Comment

     My obsession for Sophie Kinsella started with the first page of her novel Confessions of a Shopacholic. Reading has been one of my favorite hobbies since I was a kid, and as I move quickly from book to another, I’m always running out of books to pick up. My sister handed me a copy of Confessions of a Shopacholic one day saying that I might like it. Being a shopacholic myself, it captured my interest, and as I started reading, I couldn’t stop. It took me a matter of…

English or math-Which Would You Rather Choose?

Posted on March 19, 2012 at 5:02pm 23 Comments

     Throughout my four years at Fremd, I can recall countless numbers of times when math teachers have insulted English or vise versa. One comment especially from a previous math teacher will always stay in my mind. A fellow student raised his hand and asked “Are we learning something today?”  To which our math teacher replied with a straight face,” No, I’m going to put in a movie and waste the whole week watching it and the next few days discussing it. Off course we’re learning something!…

But Faulkner's so awesome! I get it though and I appreciate your instigating such an interesting discussion. I've thought about teaching the two subjects and the different challenges that are presented therein. Haven't come up with much seeing as how I have no experience in the matter but it would be interesting to hear a teacher or two's opinions. I've found that as I grow lazier math has lost my interest and English presents many more creative and inspiring ideas. There are more than likely a lot more factors than just laziness that play into the shift though.
