i started to write this early but was interupted by my co-worker. now i’m here in the UW hardware lab with music tones playing in the background. i did not make time to read the suggested material for tonight’s class. it was a very involved paper with quite a bit of mathematics. my mind is still lazy and i wish for it to engage itself but i must be patient. there are so many things i wish to learn and understand that it can be a bit overwhelming to think about. as it stands, i need to be more disciplined.
