  1. Alhamdulillah I passed my exam! It was one of the most difficult exams I have ever done and so many examinees complained about it! However, I have a lot of things to catch up on and hoping to to get it all done within the next few weeks, InshaAllah! Looking forward to a lot of exciting things happening this year! Let's all pray that this year is a year full of success and happiness for us all where we reach our goals, strive to strengthen our faith, and get closer to Allah.
  2. I have a big exam coming up in November. Can I ask you all to please pray for me so I can pass my exam?
  3. That's what I was wondering! I feel like I am still in 2021. My goal is to work on a few reports, make a few phone calls, then do more writing, followed by cooking (for dinner).
  4. We all tend to underestimate the amount of time it takes us to do a certain task. Don't we?
  5. It depends on the situation and the severity of the emotional pain that a person experiences with rejection. In a situation where the guy doesn't know the person very well, they are less likely to experience anything drastic. If they do, then the pain might dissipate away quickly. Another factor to consider is their life circumstances, which also have an impact on the magnitude of the pain they experience. For example, if a guy has limited relationship opportunities, and gets rejected by someone they barely know, then they will probably agonize over the problem as much as those getting rejected by someone they really love or care about. And dare I say, I don't think there are any "real" gender differences.
  6. Oh yes, definitely! That's why we have weekly quizzes. It's helped a lot in terms of giving us the practice that we need. The only thing making it difficult is the textbook, which is replete with examples from the author's life who tries so hard to throw in jokes to make stats 'fun' for some people who don't enjoy it or find it difficult to understand. I'm like okay, just give me what I need to know, I am not interested in your life story. And I don't want to read through lots of pages to finally be able to understand what you are talking about.
  7. Everything seems easy once you get your head around all of the basics - you feel like you have mastered the art of Stats. At least, that's how I felt, until I got to exploratory factor analysis and principal component analysis. But I know I can do this. I just need to spend a few more sleepless nights and reread every single page of the chapter. Then, I will be good.
  8. My goal is to complete (or at least partially complete) the outline for my thesis, and read a few more pages of Stats textbook.
  9. Argh...Stats is traumatising me! We are in a love-hate relationship. Anyone good at Stats and willing to help me?
  10. @Zarla Sister, if you decide to come back, ask your friend to let me know and I will re-register your account. Good luck with your studies. :)

  12. Okay, let's assume I am wrong and you are right. What exactly do you mean by "it was abnormal"? Are you referring to people's behaviour? Did every single person you met behave the same way towards you? Can you think of only ONE instance where a person was nice to you? You say that you were the only one going through this. What makes you think that you were the only one?
  13. I don't think it's the people that are rude. Maybe you expect everyone to be nice to you and let's be honest, not everyone can be nice towards you. Maybe you are too focused on the negatives that you overlook the nice things about people. Stop thinking in binary terms: e.g., "People are either rude or nice." Most people don't perfectly fall into either of these categories.
