ODDS AND ENDS
I’m reluctant to post so late into the night because I generally tend to make no sense, but I find this hour gives me some peace.
Anyways, I’m come to the conclusion that the first class that will kick my ass is MECH 523 – Fuzzy Logic Control. The bad thing is, I can’t even blame it on being behind in my reading. See, if I was behind in my reading, then I could just say, “It’s gonna kick my ass ’cause I haven’t read the text, if I did, I’m might know what’s going on”.
However, I’ve read all there is to read so far. Yet, my grasp of several fuzzy logic concepts eludes me. This is trouble. I knew I was in trouble when I tried to do some practice problems. When I tried to apply some of the concepts, my brain stopped working. Also, the whole course relies on very abstract mathematics. Stuff I might have had a chance with five years ago, but not now. I’m going to lean heavily on the prof now. I’m a big believer in the motto, “there are no stupid questions, only stupid people”, so I’m going to query up Dr. de Silva every chance I get.
Even worse, I get the feeling everyone else in the class knows what is going on, but I’m the only one who doesn’t. Oh well… lol.
In other news, I think I’ve discovered why my right arm gets tired and numb so easily now. For the last two days or so, I’ve noticed that just in regular use of my right arm, it gets really tired, like I’ve been lifting things all day. Today, after a nap, I noticed that I’m keeping my arm underneath my pillow for some strange reason. I usually don’t do that. I’m guessing the pressure of my extremely large and heavy head is causing grief on my arm. It’s strange how I don’t wake up though.
Finally, I am happy to report that my two favourite people here at St. John’s College, Nic and Marcia, have returned from their quick trip to Toronto. Without them, I would find living here a much more isolated, boring, and lonely place. Now if only Marcia would stop blabbing all my gossip in the hallway…
