  1. Big data is a hugely growing field today. Now, this science concerns absolutely every field and big data processing has become the number one task in recent years. Privacy is also important. For example when you play at US online casinos Paysafe on you expect your data will totally be secured and I am happy that almost all modern systems support this.

  2. I always thought of myself as a hopeless romantic. It seemed like I was always falling for the girl who would be the most unattainable for me. I think it started with my first crush on my teenage babysitter when I was 10 years old. She was so smart and nice to me and I had so much fun with her, who could blame me for getting a crush on her. When I was starting to be aware of the opposite sex, it seemed like I skipped over girls my own age and looked at girls who were years older than me. I did date a few girls my own age in middle school, but they didn’t interest me as much as the girls in the next grades. I never really thought of it as a fetish or anything like that once I learned that term, I could appreciate the beauty in girls my own age, but I just wasn’t fully drawn to them.

    During my freshman year of high school, I had a huge crush on my Honors English teacher, Miss Walker. She had only been teaching for a couple of years and was in her mid-twenties. She was beautiful in a bookworm sort of way with her long brown hair and her black frame glasses. She was modest in the clothing that she wore but you could tell that she was fit and she had large tits that had to be D cups. Compared to most of my other teachers she seemed genuinely excited to be a teacher and found a way to make every class interesting. Honors English was the class that I excelled the most in so it was the only class that I liked to raise my hand and speak in. I got a thrill every time Miss Walker said how I was right or that I had brought up a good point.

    Miss Walker was helping out with the yearbook class which the older English teacher next door taught so she always had her classroom open before and after school, and also during lunch. I took to hanging out with my friends in her class during lunchtime since I had her class the period after lunch hour. My friends had classes across campus so they would leave a few minutes before lunch ended to make it on time. I would use this time to read a little or polish off some homework. Miss Walker saw I was reading and asked what book I was reading. When I told her, she said how she had read that series a couple of years ago and how much she loved it. That got us talking about other books and then T.V. shows and movies. I loved talking to her one on one. When she would smile, I felt my heart melt at the thought that her smile was just for me. I know I was crazy for having a crush on a teacher, but I couldn’t help but feel that way for her.
