Educational Travel

Being in the post graduate school made me miss much those educational travels which I only experienced during my elementary, high school and college years. But as what my classmates told me, we shouldn’t be envious to those little kiddos anymore sine after we finish this degree, we can have unlimited travels then even abroad for as long as we have our own passports.

Talking about passports, I am getting hard time processing my passport because of some clerical errors in my birth certificate which my mom has already tried working on before but failed to make all things done. My friends suggested me to check passports.com passport travels since she has known from her friends that the said company is reliable. How I wish this time my passport processing be successful!

The History of Garage [Infographic]

Having a car or two at home needs an extra space for them to park, clean and even sometimes, revamp. This area is what we call the garage. Many prefer the garage to be an extension of the house while others really built a separate garage building just few walks away from their houses. The latter is most often than not a good choice since it provides a wider space for the cars and other wheels. This is also recommended for people having more than one (1) cars at home.

Moreover, here below, I am showing to you the History of Garage in an infographic style. Hope this would be helpful to you.

Education and other Factors to Success

Education is one of the reasons why many people became successful. In education you will learn so many things in life including skills, philosophy in life, religion, customs, culture, traditions, latest news and never ending information. Nowadays, colleges and universities offer variety of courses; it is your choice to choose which one will complement your talent, lifestyle, ability and knowledge. If you like health and medical topics and issues, then it is recommended to choose a course that is aligned in medicine such as, nursing, physical therapy, pharmacy, medicine, medical technology, nutrition and dietics, psychiatry etc. If you want to teach, then education is the course for you, there are plenty of majors to choose from, examples are chemistry, biology, computer, math, general science, language, history, psychology, sociology, livelihood education and many more. If your focus is business and finance then you may take up accountancy, banking and finance, business management, business administration and business education. It is really a matter of choice which course to take up based on your preference, just don’t forget that these courses will lead you to success, continuous knowledge and great career.

 In the other side of the road, there are plenty of individuals who get successful without taking up any college degree. These people used some strategies to get what they want in life and to achieve their goals and dreams. As many say, it is a matter of ability and determination to succeed in life. Ample numbers of wealthy individuals do not have college degree or diploma, and some did not even finish high school. Some of these rich persons who were not able to finish college or high school are:

  1. Bill Gates – The founder of Microsoft
  2. Steve Jobs – Apple founder

High Sierra Freewheel Rolling Book Bags

Classes will soon resume for high school and elementary pupils in the province. And every time I see kids dragging with themselves rolling book bags, it always reminds me of my every dreamed high sierra freewheel rolling book bag before.

It’s always my dream, my wish when I was still in my primary and secondary school years to own what my classmates have like a very simple rolling book bag. The family is not well off. The time when I was in high school, my three siblings were on their college years already. With that, most but not all of the finances were sent for them. Almost nothing left for me, I assume. And because I belong to a special science section where we have had more than ten (10) subjects a day and needed those books be brought in school, during my senior high days, my parents bought me mini rolling cart where I could put my bag on it and brag them on school. Hence, I never had a chance to use and own my ever dream high sierra freewheel rolling book bag.

But I never regret my younger years nor blamed anyone – my parents or siblings. I still completed my education and I learned, from those days and experiences, how hard to live and to treasure each sacrifices before.

Mathematics has many branches and one of which is Calculus. It deals more on derivatives and integrals and other related to its theorems. Accordingly, to many math-enthusiasts, Calculus is just so easy to learn as writing ABC. But to others who have difficulties with numbers, and that includes me, even how may times I might try writing the alphabet again and again, I could say that solving Calculus problems is never easy.

But that is still during my college years. Good enough I have successfully surpassed those days. And it is more overwhelming to know that there are lots of reading materials on calculus online nowadays that are available for any levels and accessible at any time. These reading materials on calculus are, by far, could of big help to students especially when they are doing their assignments on calculus at home or at anywhere they can access these online. Practice materials calculus are also included on these reading materials which helps students to enhance their ability in solving calculus more.
