During elementary school, I had a computer class once a week. That was when I became interested in computers. When I was given my first computer, I was interested in CIS, where I want to know how technology works. That was when I was 8.
When I got into high school, I had a business application classes in my freshmen year. In the class, I learned how to complete Microsoft Word assignments. However, by sophomore year, I took marketing/entrepreneurship. That was when I went from being interested in CIS to Marketing.
Currently, I am one more semester away from graduating with a Bachelor in Marketing. I was able to get into my dream college where it is a business school in the city where the commute was 45-60 minutes long. I was also interested in Japanese when I immigrated back in 2000 when there was Fuji TV programming every Friday. I took Japanese as a minor. When I was taking German in freshmen year in high school, I change from listening Bhangra to Enka. Currently, I write songs about series I grew up, i.e. Pokemon, Anpanman, and Megaman, in Enka, which I want to turn it into a career after graduation.
When I want to mail a notarized document at a post office, I was required to fill out a customs form where everything has to be written in English, where I had to translate everything. The Chinese address was written by my mom on the envelope for clarification when reaching China.
The office clerk told me to include a postal code for the receiver's phone number, which were optional. I had to use Baidu to look it up. I had to contact my father for the receiver's phone number but had to wait for hours as he was out and had to contact him via Wechat as he doesn't have a SIM card unless someone could let him borrow it. During this time, my mom contacted her sister and relatives in China for the number. One only had the hotel number, which coincidentally had the same last 4 digits of my father's cell number. The postal code is used to locate the area specifically and the phone number is used to contact the receiver for clarification.
After filling out the form, I submitted the envelope to the clerk and told her about the address. The address included the apartment block, apartment number, and the street name. She just types in what she sees. After paying for the shipping fee, it went through.
When I looked at the envelope, the "ying" 营 was written in a way that looked more like "guan" 管.
When I started elementary school, I did very well in math. Usually, it was just arithmetic stuff. I got pretty good grades.
In intermediate school, there was arithmetic stuff with some simple algebra. In 8th grade, I was able to solve a long square root question. That time, I had days with two non-consecutive periods.
In high school, freshmen and sophomore years were easy, where I took algebra and geometry. Algebra started to include simple trigonometry. Geometry was hard as it is based on logical proofs.
Junior and senior years were progressively harder. I took trigonometry/algebra 2 in Junior, where I find it confusing and difficult. I got a 65 on the final, barely passing. Knowing that I won't do well on the Regents exam, I didn't take it. In senior year, I took AP Calculus AB in the Fall and it was confusing as hell. I started falling behind by the winter break that I got transferred to Pre-Calc for Spring. In Pre-Calc, it was easier and the professor was laid-back.
Since I didn't take the AP test, I had to take calculus in college. I failed it the first time, so I took a semester break before finding a good professor for it. I could have gone to tutoring so I don't have to take it the second time.
Marketing analytics is more research-intensive. Some knowledge of statistics is needed. I didn't do well in statistics, but got a C+ in the end after knowing the professor will curve the grade.
I have been a resident of New York for 19 years now. I use public transportation as an alternative to driving and it's convenient to get around town.
I use the subway to get to college, to get to other boroughs, or to get to Penn Station or Port Authority Bus Terminal. The subway is fast and direct. From my home to college, it would take 30 to 45 minutes. If I take the bus, I would need to take Q32 and transfer for the M101, M102, or M103, which would take up to an hour due to congestion.
Outside Manhattan, I would use the buses as they are faster and the subway isn't direct. If I want to go to Astoria, I can use Q66 and the Q19 or Q101. If I want to go to Flushing, I can use the Q66 directly, even it would be slow. If I want to go to Ozone Park or Far Rockaway, I can use the Q52 or Q53 select buses, as if I were to use the subway, I would use the E to Jamaica and transfer for the J or Z to Broadway Junction, before transferring the A.
I don't take express buses as they are expensive and goes express to outskirts where subways don't go to. I wouldn't use the buses in Manhattan as it has to go through congestion and stops frequently. There will be a subway station at every intersection one can think of. Buses that run adjacent to subway lines are seeing a decline in ridership as buses are slow and inconsistent.
I would use commuter rail only for certain reasons. I would use the LIRR from Manhattan to Flushing or Bayside where I am in school. I would use Metro-North to get to White Plains as the bus is slow and doesn't operate frequently.
