"I never look back, darling. It distracts from the now." ‎Edna “E” Mode, Pixar's The Incredibles.

I saw this on facebook today.

Hmm! I don't know if I believe this or not. If Edna is right, well then, I've been way too distracted.

I think . . .

I think my lack of posting has to do with several things:

1: I don't find the need to post a lot about my daily activities. I will occasionally, but it's not gonna be several posts straight. 2: Posting about weather is mundane to read. 3: I've realize that I understand and know very little about the world, or anything. And when you understand so little and wonder so much, there's not much to write about except questions. I don't think a blog post full of questions and few answers is sufficient post. But I may have to start doing that or else my monthly post count will continue to dwindle. 4: I don't run into interesting things worthy of sharing. Like songs and phrases and stuff. Everything I've been encountering lately hasn't really stroke a chord with me. And 5: It's difficult to articulate my inner thoughts. So unless I have lots of time, I just don't write about them.

Terrible Blogger I Am

Title of the post says it all. But worst of all, I haven't made my usual post updating about my classes. Yikes. I usually make a good attempt to do so. But . . . *shrugs* It has escaped me this semester. And even now, I really don't feel like elaborating on them. I'll just quickly post what I'm taking this semester: Electronics, Logic Design, Electromagnetics, and Signals & Systems. And yes, they are in order from favorite to least favorite. Although, Logic Design and Electronics are pretty tied -- sometimes, I will like Electronics more and other times I will like Logic Design more. I do feel smarter than last semester, so this semester has not been a waste, but I am not doing as well as I hoped. But of course, I haven't taken finals yet so my grades are still to be determined. SIGH. It has been one of those types of semester.

I will leave you with my final project for my Logic Design class: a Pok√©mon game created using Verilog and a Spartan 6 FPGA board. My group and I spent many hours working very hard on this. Enjoy. =]
