hi friends, for a long time ı haven t written to here, miss you all,Dear brother Behnam happy to hear good news from you. I hope you will be better soon.By the way, I m new teacher of a college I hope everything will be great in this school.Now a days I just try to prepare classroom activities and lesson plan and a week later the class time is going to be started.
Mohsen you told about Shrize and I really wonder its pictures if it is possible I want to see there. Could you please send me some links? if it has pictures on the internet .
Dear Kamile I m teaching English too in a college but this is my first experience in a school until now I just have tutored to small groups of students .Honey ,wish you best I m very sad about you because I know that it s difficult to apply new trends in teaching English while your school manager is ordering you to apply the old-fashioned techniques .This is the first time I have heard about 504 what s that dear? it sounds strange {-: is it a name of a teaching tecnique,approach or method?
I really want to improve myself about how to teach English effectively. I have huge methodological knowledges but you know it s diffucult to adopt these during the teaching time wish me best dear :~:
I hope everthing will be good
sincere hugs to my friends...

Hi friends,

How are you? I hope you are spending a great summer.

My grandma is in the hospital, she can't walk, stand or even move her feet. She feels pain whenever she move. So the doctor checked her and decided to make a surgery... I hope she will be OK, inshallah.

Dears, I maybe wont be online for some days so please don't worry, I am very well and safe.

Please pray for my grandma.
Wish you the best
Amal

Hi Friends!

Hi my great friends,

Life without you is like being in vacuum. How are you? I hope you are doing well. I am also well. On Thursday the doctor is checking my heart by some devices like Echo and sport-scanning the curves of heart. If it works well, he will prescribe me Physiotherapy for10 sessions. About the final result of PhD exam, unfortunately, I am not accepted! I failed, although I answered to all verbal and oral questions correctly, and I did very well in the interview! I cannot justify myself! I don't know how to face with this unfairness! I am really disappointed. After knowing the failure, I was depressed for three days. I couldn't sleep and didn't eat anything! My heart beat so quickly and I sweated heavily! It was my absolute right to study PhD, but they denied my right! They are absolutely unfair and unreasonable!

Dear Shahrbanu and Kamelia, two great English teachers, I wish you success! Don't forget to look on the funny side of teaching too. Nowadays, students get bored quickly. In the past, students were hardworking, but these days many of them are fooling around. These lazy students cause teachers some troubles. It should be kept in mind that a classroom with some students has many layers. What the students do in the class is only the first layer of their actions. The students belong to different cultures and backgrounds since they are from different families. You should know there are some spies, some gossips, etc. among them. I wish you success in managing and monitoring the class as well as possible!

Dear Mohsen, I love Shiraz very much. I've been to Shiraz four times, but these have been business(job-related) trips. I hadn't time to visit those historical places. The coming spring holidays, I intend to travell to Shiraz with my family. I hope so!

Dear Amal, thank you for putting posts here and informing us about yourself. I hope your grandmother will be well soon. I will pray for her health. If the grandfather was alive, she would get well much sooner! You know, men are great healers in some situations! :lol: :lol: :lol: May God bless the grandfather and help the grandmother recover as soon as possible.

All the best,
Behnam, 9 September, 2013

I can't believe my eyes. you are kidding dear Behanm, aren't you? It can't be true at all, at all, AT ALL! This news is just like a nightmare! A terrible nightmare!

They can't do that, who allows them not to accept such a great Physician study Phd ? They themselves should BEG him to study and teach in their universities, they should BEG him, BEG him! they easily let many unqualified persons study Phd just by getting money from them, how can they fail Behnam???????????

It's the worst news i could ever hear in my life! I'm toooooooooo angryyyyyyy, I'm just exploding from anger! OH MY GOG..............

Please dear Behnam, don't sit there, go to sanjesh and ask for your right! The only thing I can think of is that there's sth wrong, maybe there's been a mistake in announcing results.... please ask them check it again, it's unbelievable ..............

Dear Shahrubanu,

I don't know where are you from ,and which city you live in. Shiraz is very famous, if you search in google the words of perspolis palace, Apadana palace or Takhte jamshid you will find many pictures from there. I find the following website you can open and visit these places.

Enjoy it,

Dear Behnam,

Sorry to hear that you didn't accept in interview, I can't judge it whether it is fair or unfair. But you have time for interview next year. Don't worry and don't press on your heart.
if the world doesn't turn on your desire somedays , don't be sad ,finally it turns for you one day., you know this poem. It was said by Hafez. I was in his Shrine where he has been buried 700 years ago. I read Al Fateh Soreh for him. Hafez was a title for him ,because he was able to read the Quran by heart. His name was Shams Al-din Mohammad. Hafez was originally from Esfahan, but his family migrated to Shiraz, because of Mongolian attack to Esfahan.

I offer one of his poem to you ,may it calms you for some moments

Your lost Joseph will return to Canaan, do not grieve
This house of sorrows will become a garden, do not grieve

Oh grieving heart, you will mend, do not despair
This frenzied mind will return to calm, do not grieve

When the spring of life sets again in the meadows
A crown of flowers you will bear, singing bird, do not grieve

If these turning epochs do not move with our will today
The spheres of time are not constant, do not grieve

Don’t lose hope, for awareness cannot perceive the unseen
Behind the curtains hidden scenes play, do not grieve

Oh heart, should a flood of destruction engulf the world
If Noah is at your helm, do not grieve

As you step through the desert longing for the Ka’aba
The thorns may reproach you, do not grieve

Home may be perilous and the destination out of reach
But there are no paths without an end, do not grieve

Our state in separation from friends and with demands of foes
The God who spins fate knows all, do not grieve

Hafez, in the corner of poverty and loneliness of dark nights
As long as your words are prayers and lessons of Quran, do not grieve.
Have a good time.
Mohsen

Hi Behnam

How are you dear? I always pray for you and your lovely family's safety and happiness. And you know what? Nothing can make life more enjoyable than these two!
I got the experience of not being in accepted in the entrance exam and tell you what, it doesn't even worse being sad for ;-) why? because you are throwing your fate to the hands of some seemingly geeks who think they know everything! And more important than that, they do NOT consider your knowledge! They appraise other trivial stuff.....you know!

Oh I'm not trying to compare myself with you since this is impossible but I'm just saying....I've been there....no need to be sorry or sad! I had a professor who had taken Ph.D five times and then got accepted on the fifth run! You see? And he was much more knowledgeable than a professor with the full professorship certificate!

Oh it happens man, time comes and goes. Don't just worry your beautiful golden heart with these stuff :-)

Oh and thanks for the piece of advice. You are always helpful. The term finished and on Saturday I'm going to hold their final tests. It was not a very happily ending semester since the previous night the manager told me that the little ones had complained him that we want her to be our teacher the next semester but she didn't EVEN work on the 504 book! Now I don't know where the hell did they get that idea from :!!: , but God knows I did my best! Uh these kids....kids! The most unfair creatures on the whole planet!

whev, I feel lighter now that I spat it out! :-D

Wish you all the best,

Write to us soon man, we miss you!

Hi Shahrbanu

Postby Kamelia » Thu Sep 12, 2013 8:38 am

How are you Shahrbanu? It is a real pleasure to meet you. Since this is the first time we are writing to each other so I really would like to know more about you. I mean if it is ok please be kind as to tell me what did you study, what was your major, how old are you, where are you from where do you teach, how much you love teaching aaaaand what books did you study to gain teaching materials :-D

So I understand that you are a university professor! What a lucky person I am to have two friends here who teach in university. Behnam and you can be great paragons of teaching for me :-)

Shahrbanuuuu, you know what 504 is? I am sure you've seen it a hundred times! Remember a very big green 504 number on a book called 504 absolutely essential words? That is it! And tell you what? The class I am presenting 504 to is such a class of "two nations" so to speak, LOL. You want to know why? because some students are really erudite while others have absolutely no idea what simple present is! And you know what? The smart ones had complained to the boss that I don't teach them enough 504 vocabulary! :!!: Gosh, man! I AM the teacher and I know how to evaluate the class and teach based on their capabilities, not the boss! You see what I am getting at?

Uh..well....I know what to do for the next semester :-D

Write to me soon,

I'd be so happy to read from you,

Hi Friends!

Hi Friends,

How are you? I've missed you terribly.

Dear Elham, thank you very much for your caring post. Last week, I went to the parliament and office of the president and made a complaint from the unfairness of the university. I did what I could do. I also went to the office of leader to complain about their cruelty, but they said it wasn't related to the leadership! The complaints won't change anything. The result is the same, but I don't care!

Dear Mohsen, thank you for your friendly post and advice. I really enjoyed the poems. Thank you very much for sharing. I agree with you about your comment on Hafez. However, I prefer Sheikh Saadi to Hafez, because his poems are more practical, useable and applicable than those of Hafez.

Dear Kamelia, I guess you have taken your first salary. Congratulations! What are you going to do with your fist salary? How do you feel now? What are you going to buy? I bet you are going to different restaurant these nights. I wish you success!

Dear Amal, I am happy that your grandmother is well after the operation. I was praying for her health. To be honest with you, whenever I started to pray for her, I remembered the story of the old lady and prophet(PBUH). It is said that a boy was carrying his old mother on his back. They met Mohammad(PBUH) accidentally. Prophet talked to the boy and asked him where he was taking his mother. The boy said he was taking his mother to visit a doctor! Prophet(PBUH) said what his mother needed is a husband, not a doctor! The boy got shocked and said, " Oh, my mother is an old lady...". While the boy was giving some explanation for his disapproval, his mother hit the boy's back with her feet and said, "Prophet knows much more than you. Don't bother him." :lol: :lol: :lol:

Dear Shahrbanu, I wish you success in teaching. You are a great teacher. Thank you for your friendly posts. I wish you the best moods. May God fill your heart from happiness and contentment.

Dear RacGamb, welcome to this thread. To be honest, I didn't get what you mean. Give my best regards to my dear friend and brother Naseh.

Dear Moroo, I am waiting for your posts.

All the best,

Dear Behnam ,
The poems are difficult to understand , and poets are mysterious , it is said the when a poet would be entangled in rhythm and rhyme ,he starts to talk nonsense.
Sometime the poet praise someone which is no deserved. Many poets compose doggerel about kings, because their life.
It is said that once Saadi did a wrong behavior uncontrolled .when he was sitting among dervishes ,the air went out from his body uncontrollably ,so he composed the following poem
شکم زندان بادست ای خردمند. ندارد هیچ عاقل باد در بند
چو باد اندر شکم پیچد فرو هل. که باد اندر شکم بارست بر دل
حریف ترشروی ناسازگار . چو خواهد شدن دست پیشش مدار

Of course I didn't get the meaning of last verse :lol: :lol: :lol:

The couple reach to mutual understanding when both of them know what are the responsiblities that should be undertaken by each side ,so the is no confilicts and objects in their life.

Banta asked Santa, "What is the secret behind your happy married life?"
Santa said, "You should share responsibilities with due love and respect to each other. Then absolutely there will be no problems."
Bantga asked, "Can you explain?"
Santa said, "In my house, I take decisions on bigger issues where as my wife decides on smaller issues. We do not interfere in each others decisions."
Still not convinced, Banta asked him, "Give me some examples"
Santa said, "Smaller issues like which car we should buy, how much amount to save, when to visit home town, which Sofa, air conditioner, refrigerator to buy, monthly expenses, whether to keep a maid or not etc are decided by my wife. I just agree to it"
Banta asked, "Then what is your role?"
Santa said, "My decisions are only for very big issues. Like whether America should attack Syria, whether the European Union should lift sanctions over Iran, whether UN should revise some rules, etc. Do you know one thing, my wife NEVER objects to any of these."

Diary,
Today I bought 10 kgs walnut in green skin , it was just picked from walnut tree , the walnut core was soft and white.In the evening I peeled the walnuts and broke some of them by fingers. It was really delicious to eat fresh walnut. I also roasted two corns of maize on the fire ,ate them with my wife.
The fresh corns ,fresh walnut and pistachio are all over on the market.

Hi Mohsen,

How are you our loyal friend? I hope your life is full of joy. Don't worry, I am here, and will be here, but these days I am not in the mood for writing. I will write after full recovery. I am going to the hospital 3 times a week(even days) to do special exercise. I will join you soon, Enshallah.

Love your posts,
