#665583 Students: Studying and Time management

Posted by Sundance on 08 November 2013 - 11:13 AM

When I study, I read for an hour, recite it back to myself (a basic summary of it) and I write out notes, key points and so on and then I take a 5-15 minute break to refresh my mind and clear it.

#665578 Students: Studying and Time management

Posted by Sundance on 08 November 2013 - 10:41 AM

Considering new year is only really a month away it does sound quite soon so I feel your pain.


I'm a full time student of medicine but here's a few things that I do.


1. I have a to-do list on my desk, I add to it whenever there's something new to do, it's an A4 Notepad.

2. I have a schedule, a list of things that I do at certain times such as "wake up" at 7am etc.

3. I program / code all the time but I don't always write it, I think code when I'm waiting on the tube or whilst I'm walking somewhere.

4. Make more time for it, may sound hard but you may have to give up luxuries and pleasure times to work / learn and that is what sacrifice is about. You have to give in order to receive.


Hope this helps.

#665429 To root or not to root?

Posted by Sundance on 05 November 2013 - 05:03 PM

You're correct KJGino, it is an android.


As for your concerns, I actually rather enjoyed rooting my iOS phone, it was a learning experience, but that being said I found it also to be more flawed and annoying.


I disagree with rooting but that's from a nerd perspective, whenever my friends have trouble with their phones they come to me, if they customize their phone it means that things look different and it becomes harder to find certain things (I.e. settings)


But I would read through the entire of the instructions so you know what's coming next (some guides rely on quick action, so reading it step by step may hinder you)

#665282 Strange Request: Need A Naturalist Programmer to Talk

Posted by Sundance on 01 November 2013 - 04:58 AM

1. Name

Loren Kady Petrov
2. Occupation

Student of Medicine
3. Experience (years)

In programming 4 years, in naturalism for as long as I can remember
4. Do you believe in the super-natural (something beyond nature)? Why or why not?

Nope, I'm very heavy on believing what I can see, what I can test for, if there is no way for it to be remotely proven then it's not worth believing, the super natural is just folklore and so forth
5. Would you do your work any differently if the super-natural was known to be real?

I genuinely can't say if I would or I wouldn't, if it were real before I was born and I grew up with it, I would probably do things differently because it would already be a part of my "life", but if it were proven today, it wouldn't interest me so I don't think I would.
6. Do you believe your field as a whole would be different if naturalism was known to be false?

Looking into the past and how medicine was seen VS god and how some religions see medical advancements as "against" god (Jehovah witnesses disagreeing with blood transfusions) so yes, I do think it would be different.
7. What type of evidence would be necessary to change your belief on naturalism? (for example, internal inconsistencies, logical fallacies, real-world application issues, evidentiary proof, experiential proof, etc.)

I would need some sort of evidence that could not be explained by current science, I'm very open minded, to me if there was a God he would be a scientist whom created the world, he would not be a deity of all knowing and all seeing wisdom.
8. If there was one point you would want those Christian apologists to know, it would be:

You should never worship anyone or anything because of fear.



Just figured I would post my answers here for anyone curious.

#664630 Working With A Disorder

Posted by Sundance on 11 October 2013 - 06:24 AM

Epilepsy is not an easy disorder to work with, especially where it is effecting you as the neurons will continue to misfire until the brain has finished using its plasticity to correct its self, if you explain it to people and help them know why you are the way you are they should not have a problem, if they do then they are just being ignorant and rude as it is out of your control.


If you ever need to talk about it you can message me any time.
