Today was a great day. Here’s what happened that made it great:
I got the most amount of studying done since the beginning of November
Got better at graphing functions
Worked on SNAT
Had an acquaintance ask if I wanted coffee
Cleaned up my email (Didn’t get too.)
Here’s what I wish I did differently about my day:
Interaction with Yan (Didn’t get too.)
I believe what made my studying more effective and was able to get done 3 hours and 15 minutes compared to my normal 2 hours is that I did half an hour studying in each subject, then worked out and then did half an hour studying in the remaining subjects. However with Math the second time, I only did 15 minutes and didn’t touch on computer science again after the first half hour chunk. This is really good that I’ve found a way to increase my studying time and compensate for my mental difficulty during this time of year. I may actually continue a variation of this after my mental difficulty disapears during early January.
I’ve been having trouble graphing graphs accurately like (x^2 -3x)/(X^2 -4) including the using the first and second derivative test! (About time too, I have my final Math Term test tomorrow, I’m nervous because I don’t know the theorems or proofs at all well, but I’ll manage.)
I was able to get 29 minutes of work on SNAT today! I’m write now paper coding/planning which is really hard, but once I get thru this, the application will basically write itself. I’ve only ever done this once before and the application that I was writing turned out beautiful. That’s because of preplanning and realizing that you’re deciding exactly what each section of your code works, what relies on what etc.
I had an acquaintance ask while I was studying if I wanted Coffee. This was somebody that I’ve meet in engineering. He’s the father of two children and taking engineering which is just incredible! Anyway, I was touched that he considered me enough of a friend to ask if I wanted coffee when he went to Tim’s. You see I have trouble making friends so every friend I make is really really awesome!
Anyway I ran out of time so I won’t be able to touch on the other two topics.
