Hi Amal,

Thanks for your words. I've missed you too. Whenever you have time at night and have access to the Net, just let me know. I will get online and we will chat.

About the name, I will tell you something online. Thank you very much for your efforts and attempts to help me. You are very kind.

All the best,

Hi Estela,

That's nice reading from you. Thank you very much for writing in this thread. Please write more about yourself. I like reading about you.

By the way, your English is very good. Don't underestimate yourself. Oh, would you please write something about the philosophy 'showing red rags to bulls' in your country? Why do people like that dangerous game? I see your festivals different from other regions. Why?

All the best,
Behnam, 7 January, 2013

Hi Behnam,

How are you?

Dear when we chat last time we were speaking about something very important and I was tired so I didn't tell you about my news... In fact, I am working as a teacher these days!!!!!!!!!! :-D

Last week my uncle told me that a manager of a school wants some teachers to work there so I went and met her.. During the meeting she asked me if I had free time then she continued that why don't you start today and try if you liked the job or not and in this way we too can see if you are appropriate for the it or not. I was verrrrrrrry surprised cause I knew nothing about the subjects or the classes which I had to teach but I hesitantly agreed...

So, she let me teach math for fourth grade students... they were very smart and I didn't had any difficulties with teaching them but there was a student who is verrry active and if you didn't make him busy with solving things, he would do a loooooot of noises. At the beginning, I didn't know how to focus on teaching other students and keeping him busy all the time too. On the other hand, there was another student called "Yaman" who was very calm and love to study,In fact I haven't seen any conscious, interested and dedicated kid as much as he is!

After I finished the lesson, I didn't know if they will hire me or not.. All what I had to do is to wait till the next day and wait there call..

The next day when I entered the institute, Yaman and Omar were having a class but they saw me and you can't imagine how happy they were, a big smile were on their faces, we started to wave to each other and I asked them about their previous ecxams results and thank god they had full marks! :-D
To say the truth, at that moment, I didn't know who was happier, me or them, I was glad that they remembered me and were happy to see me again.. My heart was really beating verrrrry fast, I wished I can hug and kiss them...
However, my mom said to me " Amal! don't act like a kid and don't smile a lot, let them respect and fear you!!!"
So I tried to hide my happiness and act like old people. But it seems that it doesn't work cause I don't know who the kid is me or them! :lol: :lol:

Ohhh my god!!! I am in love with those kids and I miss them a looooooot!!! Ohh my god!! They are like angels, in the lessons I just sit and stare at their eyes!!!

Today, I didn't teach them cause the manager wants me to give math lessons to a boy in the 8th grade cause he has exam tomorrow but in reality my heart was with them. :-( I wish I could teach them forever!

Dear, I don't know if they wants me to work there just during the exams weeks or to stay even after them but I am trying to enjoy and learn from this experience as much as I can!

Another thing came to my mind while watching the other married teachers is that how can they manage their time and not be sooo tired from the job. Meanwhile, I -as a single girl- who has no husband nor children to take care of and doesn't have to clean or cook, find it an exhausting job??!!! :shock: :shock:

I was really sad for their children cause they ignored them and gave their full attention to the students!!! :-(

So finally, I came to a conclusion, if I got married, I would like to spend that time at my home and try to teach my own children instead of teaching others', no matter how that cost!!!

In the end, sorry if I talked a loooooooot but you know that I love to share my news with you.
Please pray for me.

Wish you the best,
Amal

Hi Amal,

WOW! I'm writing to a kind teacher now! Oh my God! I cannot believe it! Congratulations on this great success! You deserve it Amal. You can be a very effective and successful teacher. I am so happy about it and so proud of you.

Please write about your new experience to us. I am sure, everyday you are experiencing a new thing in this job. Thankfully, the students are young. Therefore, the love between you and your students is safe. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Love is more dangerous than a hungry lion! Don't trust it at all. It may seem silence and quiet at the first glance, but all of a sudden it may jump over and kill victims. No matter how large or powerful an animal is. Lions know how to beat them! {-: {-: {-:

I like hearing from you.

All the best,
Behnam January 13, 2013

Hi Amal...

How are you my dearest dear?

What I read in your last post it's made me so happy for you. Go on dear and may God bliss you, protect you, and lead you to the right direction.
From my experience I advice you to balance between seriousness and passion with the students specially the boys because this generation is older than it's age.

I hope you are fine and have nice days...

Don’t push away the people who truly care about you, because one day, you will push them away, and they won’t come back.

Hi kind Amal,

How are you? I hope you are happy and healthy. I've missed you terribly.

Thank you for your posts. I guess you are reading a book these days, and you are only interested in odd pages! There are even pages too. Don't ignore them! Hehehehehehehe.... :lol: :lol: :lol: {-:

You cannot imagine how much I've missed you and other friends. Unfortunately, I am busy with studying for exam these days. I don't spend time with my friends as I used to do. I have to study harder, since many subjects are still left. By the way, I keep forgetting things. I think I am getting old! }: I have to revise the studied books. However, I will be back. I'm sure, the spring will come and the nightingale will sing again. Stay with me, be patient. I'm sure, happy days will come! Crying.....


I love hearing about you. Please keep in contact with me.

All the best,
Behnam, 18 January, 2013

Hi friends,

I have got many things to share with you. However, I am not in the mood for writing. On the other hand, time is my biggest enemy these days. I spend almost all my free time on challenging with difficult subjects in books! It is too difficult to cope with problems in different areas in life. I am sure you know it yourself. Those difficulties prevent you from concentrating on studying. I don't know how to say it in a simple way. It is like fighting in many battles. When your attention, ability and energy are unwillingly divided you cannot win or achieve your goals.

Goals are like vectors in the vector-space. They have different direction. When setting our goals, we must be careful with the direction of them. Sometimes, goals are in the same direction, or the angle between them is small. Therefore, adding them results in a larger vector. However, sometimes goals are ill-oriented. They cancel each other. Adding them may result in a smaller vector or even nothing!

If we consider people as vectors in the vector-space, we can get some interesting results by studying these vectors with applying basic maths. For example, making friends with someone is like adding two vectors with each other. What is the result? Adding two vectors gives a vector which can be smaller, larger than both of them or even zero! The size of the result depends on the sizes of two vectors and COSINE of the angle between them! This cosine is extremely important! It can be zero, positive and negative.

Friendship among people is quite similar to the relationship between vectors. It is worth spending some time on vectors! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Sometimes, phase difference between two system can be described by that angle. In fact, that angle causes two systems to be either in phase or out of phase with each other. I think you got the point.

Surely, people are different from vectors. Undoubtedly, human beings are much more complicated than some abstract ideas. However, in many cases, making an analogy helps. At least, it simplifies problems.

In the world of human beings, what that angle is; which the effective parameters are, and how those parameters evolve! This is another story. I may write something about it in the future.

All the best,

Hi Behnam...

How are you my older brother?

I loved your comparison between friends and vectors. Yeah my dear, you can see or find or use maths every ware. Me as a mathematician, I agree with all what you said.
In talking about forgetting things, It's because of physical or psychological stress and I suffer from this issue. We have to focus on what we are studding and ignore other things.
I pray to God for you and all my dear friends to achieve your goals and be happy so don't forget me from your prays please.

Have nice days...

Hi friends,

About five years ago, I downloaded and read the following poem. At that time I took something from it, but today I read it again. I feel this time I understand it better than before. This poem should be memorized by everybody. I am sharing it with my friends through email, thread, .... I hope you will enjoy reading it. It is really worth spending some time on memorizing this poem.

All the best,
Behnam, 21 January, 2013

********************************************


The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but
shorter tempers, wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but
have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller
families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less
sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems,
more medicine, but less wellness.

We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little,
drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too
little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.

We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too
much, love too seldom, and hate too often. We've learned how to make a
living, but not a life. We've added years to life not life to years. We've
been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street
to meet a new neighbour. We conquered outer space but not inner space. We've
done larger things, but not better things. We've cleaned up the air, but
polluted the soul. We've conquered the atom, but not our prejudice. We write
more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less. We've learned to
rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to hold more information, to
produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less.

These are the times of fast foods, and slow digestion, big men and small
character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days of
two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes. These are
days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night
stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to
quiet, to kill. It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and
nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology can bring this letter to
you, and a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just
hit delete.

Remember, spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going
to be around forever. Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to
you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your
side. Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is
the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn't cost a cent.

Remember, to say, "I love you" to your partner and your loved ones, but
most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from
deep inside of you. Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for
someday that person will not be there again. Give time to love, give time to
speak, and give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.

Hi Wilzin,

How are you my dear fried and young brother? I hope all is going well with you and you are enjoying every minute of your life.

I am happy that the poem has made you think about a proper tittle. Yes, I agree with you. "Last Time" is a nice name; meaningful and in agreement with our religious belief about life at the end of the history of humanity.

Wilzin, it is very nice to read your posts. Please write more about yourself. As you may know, I am studying for my PhD exam. I am busy with books these days. That's why I am not as active as I used to be. However, this time will come to end. I will join you soon. Please keep this little candle's flame burning.

All the best,
Behnam, 22 January, 2013

Hi friends,

Hope you are all fine and happy, enjoying your lives. Although I'm not missed by anybody here, I miss you and writing in my beloved forum. :lol:

These days, I'm busy with some projects in university, I go to English class and try different recipes at home. Seems I've found one of my most favorite activities in life,I love cooking. Sometimes family members give me hope and say " Wow, you would be a skillful cook", sometimes they make me disappointed saying "oh, never cook this again"! It's just the first steps, I have to keep on trying again and again to make a good chef.Practice makes perfect.YES.
Emmm, I know there's somebody here who will say " Hehehe, try but a Fars woman never can cook like an Azerbaijani woman." ! Okkkkkkk, I know, you are right, I agree! :lol: :lol: :lol:

It's so soon but I can smell spring today.However, I'm not happy with it!An unexpected spring ,before smelling winter fully, is not pleasant. To me, winter means snow and it's two years that from winter I just experience it's coldness. :-( Do you think it's too late for a snow fall? Do you think it's too optimistic of me to hope for it now?
NO NO, I don't lose my hope, I need it. I need some snow fall, some healing snow fall! Some heart-warming snow fall! Some heart-some snow fall! I'll pray for it, like children I keep my fingers crossed for it and ask god to send some snow down just for me, why not? :lol:

Sometimes I wonder why I don't pray as much as I used to before!!! Isn't it beautiful to keep your request hands up and hopefully pray for what you really need, when you know there's somebody sooooooooo kind up there hearing you, the one who's able to do every every every thing?
There are two things I love the most among things a human can do; loving and praying! Ok ok....

I read sth about praying, I'm going to share it with you.


PRAY

- If you don’t believe in prayers, then ask somebody to pray for you. You don’t have to be a too religious person to pray. Nobody needs to know that you are praying. It is a relationship between you and our heavenly Father. Express yourself. Say it through prayer. A prayer should always be our first recourse rather than our last resort.

If you feel that two of your friends are fighting over something . . . so Pray

If you feel that you hate your friend because he has betrayed you . . . so Pray.

If you feel that your relationship has been strained because of harsh words . . . so Pray

If you feel that you hate your mom because she favors your other siblings over you . . . so Pray

If you feel that you hate your boss because he is too strict and shouts often . . . so Pray

If you feel that your fiancée or husband is cheating over you . . . so Pray

If you feel that you were hurt . . . so Pray

A bible verse in Philippians 4:6 says “In everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.” Nothing is more powerful than a sincere prayer to mend a broken relationship.


Let's pray for each other* :-)

Wish you all the best,
Elham

Ohhhhhhh Eliiiiiii!!!! Of course there are a looooooooooooooooot of people who miss you "including me"!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow! You are learning how to cook, this is good for you!! Your husband will be lucky, not like mine. :lol:
Anyway, I wish I could try Iranian food one day. " inshallah"

Dear, these days it's getting warmer, I don't know why and maybe it's late to ask for snow from god but I will pray for that with you and ask our lovely god to send some snow to your country. {-;

As you know, it snowed here in Syria and that was great! I enjoyed it a lot. Although, I was too worried about the people who left their homes and went to parks, for those who are in living in tents in the border and those who have nothing to keep them warm. Poor them. :-(
May god help them and give them the strength...

By the way, thanks for sharing those things about pray with us, I loved them.

In the end, may Allah give you whatever you wish and keep you healthy and happy.

Love you
Amal
