physics, my day.

Physics is done. Thank the heavens.

I've spent my entire day working on some kind of homework. This is probably one of my more productive days. I got through most of physics (waiting for some help from neil on one more problem.) I also spent 2 hours doing Math225 homework which is due tomorrow, which is a good thing. I turned in my CS231 MP (the next assignment is out tonight, but I'm not looking at that now).

Hmm. I need to brush my teeth.

Anyway, woke up around 9:15 to my alarm. Just as I was trying to climb back into bed, the phone rung. I decided to pick it up, because I felt like it would help me get awake and stay that way. It was christy, calling to talk a bit while fran was off making phone calls on the pay phone. We talked for a bit, and then I got up out of bed and got on the computer. Printed up the last two parts of my CS231 HW to turn in, which was a good feeling. I'm actually fairly pleased with how they came out. The project was to design a circuit which would take a number from 0-9 in binary and convert it to braille. I had to do it using Normal Minimal Sum Products, NAND gates, Decoders, and Multiplexors. The whole thing can be seen at http://www.students.uiuc.edu/~crschmid/cs231mp1.htm . (about 120k of images, PNGs) It's kind of neat, if you're a dork like me. And it worked! Hopefully I get a good grade.

Let's see... After CS, i came back and started working on physics. Didn't really do much, but got about half done I think. Went to CS225 at 2, and enjoyed another lecture by Bert Jason Zych. He integrated pacman into the lecture for circular arrays (the data goes off one side and wraps around, just like pacman) and we discussed basics of binary/k-ary trees. I fell asleep a couple times :)

After that, I booked my way over to Christy's to do my math homework. I tried to catch the bus, I missed one, the next one was fulll, so I just walked. Made it in 15 minutes. I got there, and they were both just kidn of standing there (christy and fran). I came in and did homework while they did DOA2 for a couple hours. I got all my math done, played one round of DOA2, came back to Allen.

I ate dinner (crap.) came back, and did most of the rest of my physics homework while watching Sarah on my webcam (which is still at her house). I wrote this, caught up with my friends page, and now I think I'm going to take a nap, so I can stay awake for a little bit longer and hopefully get some work done on the EALC paper that's due friday.

I have a couple protected posts to write, but I'm very tired tonight, and I have a lot of homework. I have my phy-sucks exam on Wednesday, plus mps and all that stuff.

I'm just tired. But I have food! Lots of it. and watching a webcam is so helpful when trying to decide how the person you're talking to is feeling. Looking at the person just allows for such easier judgement of how they're feeling, even if it is just over crappy dialup.

Watched the last episode of joe millionaire, (well, the last 15 minutes of it). I'll save spoilers for tomorrow.

You all are wonderful. Very Very wonderful.

And that's all.
