Majors: Finance!

Posted by Dinky Mind on Monday, February 25, 2008 in ,
I've taken Finance as my majors and the course we're studying this semester is "Derivative Investment". Concentrating on idiotic derivatives for 3 hours straight is a harsh punishment I suffer from every Friday, 6 pm to 9 pm! I have studied Derivatives a year ago too, but that was just an overview. Now, we're studying in depth. Ritz knows how much I detest this 3-hour class and how much I try and fail to concentrate in this course. But not anymore! I got the book of Derivatives today. It isn't as boring as I thought of it to be. I started reading it like those kids who get happy on getting a new story book. Did I tell you we've got 2 quizzes tomorrow? Well, we do. To be honest, I haven't started reading a word of them because, firstly, I forgot, and secondly, I was enjoying reading Derivatives. And then Ritz reminded me of the quizzes at 10 pm:

Ritz: "Done with Ethics's and OPM's prep?"
Me: *confused "Im sorry?"
Ritz: "There's a quiz tomorrw!!!"
Me: *dinky mind starts working* "Oh, I forgot :$"
Ritz: *shocked* "You WHAT???"
Me: "I'm sorry, I was studying Finance. It's so interesting. I've fallen in love with Derivatives!!"
Ritz: "Marry them!!! "
Me: "All 4? Forwards, Futures, Options and Swaps?"
Ritz: "Check the Options, and marry Futures in Forwards. Later you can Swap!"
Me: "Thanks" :)

Cheerio folks!!!

P.S.: Pray for the quizzes please

I feel something’s missing. I’m feeling empty. Why can’t I google it?

In days when daisies deck the ground,

And blackbirds whistle clear,

With honest joy our hearts will bound

To see the coming year.

This time my result isn't "Re[in]sult".

I was comfortably curled up in my bed, when this friend of mine called up and asked, "So, did you beat me or did I beat you?"

Me: *sleepy* "Means?"
He: "Helloooo....Result's out!!!"
Me: "ooooo....what did you get?"
He: *happily* "3.42" [or was it 3.4? whateva...]
Me: "woah!!! great!!!"
He: "Tell me yours"
Me: "Didn't check. I'm sleepy"
He: "Get up and check now"
Me: *aarrrggghhhh* "I don't want to spoil my mood"
He: "Get up I say, and check!!!!"
Me: *irritated* "WHATEVAAA"

*hang up*

Turned on the PC, connected, checked the site, entered my enroll number and I got 3.75! Got 3 As and 3 B+s

My friends often say, "If Adam Smith is the father of Economics, then Umem is the mother of Adam Smith" :P

Cheerio folks =)

PS.: Thanks to all those who prayed for me :) May Allah reward you. Amen :)


Big John's story

Posted by Dinky Mind on Monday, February 04, 2008 in ,
One fine day, a bus driver went to the bus garage, started his bus, and drove off along the route. No problems for the first few stops - a few people got on, a few got off, and things went generally well.

At the next stop, however, a big hulk of a guy got on. Six feet eight, built like a wrestler, arms hanging down to the ground. He glared at the driver and said, "Big John doesn't pay!" and sat down at the back.

Did I mention that the driver was five feet three, thin, and basically meek? Well, he was. Naturally, he didn't argue with Big John, but he wasn't happy about it. The next day the same thing happened - Big John got on again, made a show of refusing to pay, and sat down. And the next day, and the next.

This grated on the bus driver, who started losing sleep ove the way Big John was taking advantage of him. Finally he could stand it no longer. He signed up for body building courses, karate, judo, and all that good stuff.

By the end of the summer, he had become quite strong; what more, he felt really good about himself. So on the next Monday, when Big John once again got on the bus and said, "Big John doesn't pay!"

The driver stood up, glared back at the passenger, and screamed, "And why not?"

With a surprised look on his face, Big John replied, "Big John has a buss pass."

Management Lesson: "Be sure there is a problem in the first place before working hard to solve one."
