Today was just the start of a long week. Is there such a thing as a good pain? We started out just breaking down some simple strategies, diagrams, and ideas. Then we pretty much dove right into lab 1. The lab itself was tough, but fair. There were some really tough sections that I won’t go into detail so I don’t scare anyone off. I will say this – I thought I was coming into the day totally unprepared, but after finishing the lab tonight, I don’t believe that to be true. Sure I could score a 20 on this lab tomorrow when I get my score report, but today’s lab was just what I needed to get moving again. It felt good to sit for eleven hours and just work through topic after topic. I am sure any confidence that was built up today will get crushed tomorrow, but that is OK. Got to catch the last half of Weird Science after class tonight which has to be one of the best movies to unwind to.

Day/lab 2 tomorrow…
