Well the Timbers didn’t win (another 0-0 draw) and now haven’t scored a goal in, oh, 427 minutes. That’s over 4 matches. Damn. On the plus side, Houston’s Stadium was gorgeous, we got a point on the road, and no one got kicked in the face. Sometime you have to remind yourself to always look on the bright side of life.
The same rings true for studying. I’m now four chapters through Kaplan, and I think I’ve made it over the nasty calculations hurdle. I’m able to work through equations and problems fairly efficiently, but my understanding of what all the components mean is still weak. I don’t know what I need to memorize what resources will be available, so I want to review the NCARB supplied list before I go too much further. The less I have to store in my brain, the better.
I’ve got to admit it’s a little strange sitting at a desk with books. I don’t think I’ve done this since…well since I took structures in college. While I’m enjoying the reprieve from typing in a pages document, I feel like I’m ultimately going to have to take all of the information I’m highlighting and jotting down and put it into my notes later. I hope I’m not wasting time.
