Extra Credit Reading Notes "Nachiketa a collection of stories from the Upanishads"

Image
I decided to read "Nachiketa a collection of stories from the Upanishads". The first story is about a boy named Nachiketa who is occupied with a bunch of spiritual questions. One day when the boy's pet deer dies he wonders if there is life after death. His dad gets furious at him and sends him down to the god of death Yama. Down there Yama grants the boy three wishes. The boy's three wishes were to make his father happier, for him to be rode of hunger and thirst and for Yama to answer the question if there is life after death. After the boy gets his wishes he is sent back home. Another story is about a different young boy named Satyakama who goes and studies Gautama. Gautama sends him on a journey with cows and one of the bulls tells Satyakama where Brahma is.

The Story starts at the very end of the normal Ramayan story.

Learning by H.E.A.R.T Time management

One thing about this class that I need to fix is my time management. I need to not wait until Sunday night to finish all my assignments for this class because I have a lot of other work to do on Sundays. For example, I had to study for a test last night and wasn't able to finish one of my assignments because of it.



Tech Tip: Browser typing

The thing about browser typing is that it's super quick and easy to navigate back to webpages. Instead of having to go back and re-copy or re-type something into google I can just find the website I need back in my bookmarks.
