We’ll be going into the third week of the term on Monday. Up until this point, I really don’t feel like I’ve done a lot of work yet. I’d like to look back upon a day and say, “Yeah, I got a lot of stuff done today.”
It’s clear to me that I’m less disciplined compared to when I was in undergrad. It’s a tradeoff I’m willing to live with now. The only negative is that I don’t get as much work done and I’m less efficient.
I’m going to try to use most of my Saturday to work. With the exception of playing a little ball hockey, I’ll be working my ass off. I’m concerned that I might falter when the Canucks game is on, but I guess that’s where my commitment will be tested. I remember last year I was in my room 26 consecutive hours. If I wasn’t sleeping I was working. I hope that guy returns soon.
Yeah, it was a really good idea for me to audit that Animation Physics class. I read through the second assignment and it’s probably the hardest assignment I’ve seen in my entire life. No joke. It involves making thousands and thousands of particles, and then modeling their behaviour. As they fall due to gravity, you have to simulate how they would react if they collided with a solid object. The math behind collision detection is pretty daunting. I never realized that until now. It will take me several weeks to fully understand it.
I’ve been having trouble napping all week. I just can’t seem to fall asleep in the afternoons. I feel too tired to work, but I’m not tired enough to fall asleep. I’m caught in this zombie state. It’s very unproductive. I’ve never had this problem before. The next time this happens, I’m tempted to power through it with some Coke or something.
Ok, I’ll leave you with a sorta of request. How many of you have seen the movie Old School?. Hey me too! Bed, Bath, and Beyond!!! Um, anyways, so there’s this band that plays during the wedding scene. You know what I’m talking about. They’re called The Dan Band. All they play are covers of women’s songs. They recently released a CD with a few of their songs. I’ll be honest and say that I can’t find these tracks on file-sharing. Does anyone have their cover of Total Eclipse of the Heart? I mean the cover version from the CD, not some crappy clip from the movie. If you could help me out, I’d really appreciate it.
