How to replace MV Boli font

I am absolutely sure that no one likes this MV Boli system default font for Divehi language that comes with Windows since Windows XP. It’s so ugly and depressing to look at. Now here is a very easy way to change it for ever in your system. Just download this font file and install it like how you would install any other font. It will replace the existing MV Boli font with a much nicer font Faruma.

Writing my heart out

smart_guy_teaching

In the long history of my tutoring life since 1997 I have never felt so upset or sad about losing a student this much. Yes, I am  extremely upset. Why? Let me get to that.

I have always taught from my mind and heart and loved my tutoring sessions so passionately. Probably the main reason most students do really understand my lessons so clearly and are able to retain them for longer periods of time. Teaching/tutoring has been and is still a learning experience for me too. I just love to be abreast of or immersed in my most loved two subjects Mathematics and Physics. I love to think about problems and relate them to real life. I am fascinated and curious to see how students react to my explanation of the concepts and ideas. Teaching/tutoring is the passion in my life.

I thought I was the only a neurotic freak who struggled with fractions in third grade, avoided taking calculus in high school, and dropped out of physics for non-science majors in college. But it turns out an emotional reaction to all things numeric now has an official label: math anxiety.
