So, I’ve had a week to get my math homework completed, and like a normal student, I kind of left it to the last minute. Unfortunately, it has elements I have no idea how to do. I think like a physicist; usually I have to have a concrete problem I can think of and work on, while not worrying about minute details like proofs. This homework is so abstract that it’s difficult to wrap my mind around. I know how to do linear algebra, but the idea of breaking up small matrices into even smaller ones to do simple matrix multiplication astounds me. WHY on earth would you want to do that? This book not only presents the information in a mostly abstract way, but it definitely caters to math majors, and not to engineers/physicists.
Maybe I could just rebel and not do it? I may just drop it in her box late, but complete. I’d probably get a higher grade if I turned it in before 5 pm with all the problems done rather than on time with half the problems completed. Grrr I hate math majors. *smacks forehead with palm*
So yeah, it’s 6 am. I’ve not slept yet, but I did have a few hours nap after dinner tonight. Sean played video games while I slept with my feet in his lap. I didn’t feel well all day today – chemo/radiation is definitely catching up with me, not to mention the cold I’m starting to get. At least I got my grocery shopping done, or we really wouldn’t have had any food at all. The fridge was empty save for some condiments (LOTS of condiments…), old salad fixings, and a half-gallon of skim milk. I’ve been eating cereal for the past few days, with a Jamba Juice and KFC thrown in there. (mmm KFC… I hadn’t had that in forever, and it was so tasty). I’m starting to gain my weight back after I finished chemo a few months ago. I wonder if my current chemo is going to stop my appetite again. I know I want to start working out (maybe using my Wii Fit, or fencing). I’ve been trying to coerce Sean into fencing again… I really miss it. But, he’s so much better than me that it’s definitely a one-sided competition.
This is definitely a feeble attempt at procrastination. Better get back to the grind before radiation.
