Interested in pumps?

Posted by austenfan at 11/20/2011 08:11:00 PM 0 comments
During the times when I stay in the library, I sometimes find myself looking at books about pumps. Yes, I know! I'm turning into a geek! When I was in college, I didn't think that books discussing pumps would interest me. Well, that just goes to show that interests can also change.

I'm not an expert when it comes to pumps. I still can't differentiate the function of each type of pump. However, with continuous study, I hope I can get more acquainted with these different pump types. Maybe a year from now, I'd easily be able to discuss how a coolant pump works and be able to understand the basics of proper pump maintenance.

Anyway, for now, I have to get back to finishing a report. Got any info on pumps? Feel free to share it!

Busy week ahead!

This is going to be a busy week. So many papers and homework to do - I hope I can finish them all on time! Actually, I want to finish all of them ahead of time. However, I know that's not going to be an easy task. The best way to get all these things done is, of course, effective time management.

Time management - two words that we frequently use yet can be a bit difficult to apply in our daily routine. Yes, it can be hard to do but I hope I can effectively manage my time, though. I really need to get all these tasks done.

Any effective time management tips you care to share?

Jobs to look out for

I'm currently watching a show right now that deals with the issue of unemployment in our country today. So far, it's been very informative and worth watching. One of the major reasons of unemployment cited is the mismatch between the available jobs and the work skills that the applicants have. Yes, although there are a number of available jobs out there, not a lot of people have the skills to fill that position.

Personally, I think that the youth of today should seriously consider taking Computer Programmer Jobs. Whenever I log on to a job-hunting site, I would see hundreds of ads for computer programming job vacancies. I admit, I even feel a twinge of regret that I didn't take up something related to IT during my college years. Don't take it the wrong way, though. I'm still happy being an engineer. :)

Now, the biggest decision graduating high school students will be facing has to do with the path they want to take. Will they take practicality or go for what they truly want?

Did you ever want to become a doctor?

I'm not sure about this, but I think at some point in our lives, we all had that dream to become a doctor. Is that a prerequisite among children? Or is it just that our parents taught as that it's one of the things that we must aspire to become?

When we were kids, a lot of us probably wanted to wear baby scrubs, complete with a stethoscope, just to see how we would look like as doctors. I know I was one of those kids! Haha. Now, I don't regret that I took up engineering in college, though. It may not be what I have originally planned, but it's a profession that I'm proud to have. :)

What about you, though? What did you dream to be when you were a child? Did you push through with it or did your plans change as you grew up?

Are you on Goodreads?

Love reading books? Then, you must be in Goodreads! Goodreads is like your online bookshelf, which you can share to your friends and fellow book lovers. I haven't updated my Goodreads account for quite a long time, but if you have an account there, then please do add me up! Here's the link to my profile.

There are other alternatives to Goodreads, if you're looking for something else. One of the most popular book-related social networking site is Shelfari. I also have an account there, but it isn't really active. I like Goodreads layout and features much better, I think. Plus, I think there are more book bloggers over at Goodreads.

Let's share our bookshelves! Add me up on Goodreads!
