Not like anyone is gonna read this so no flashy colours thingy Just a place for some random study plans in the hope of being more organized.

Edit: adding some more stuff cuz I can't sleep. Apparently more people have read this than I've expected Thank you all for reading this life planner. I'll try to keep it updated, once a day maybe, but I'm not very sure how busy things will be.

Kitty's here. Some brief update

19/10/18 (cont.)
Comment
  • V&M lecture was better than the last one, clearer explanation, fewer index notation, however still very fast.
  • The LA book by Lang is clear but I cannot follow his line of thought, especially the explanation. I'll try to finish the first chapter today and see how it goes.
  • The HW is much easier than I thought, pretty straightforward. Need more practice on Centre of Mass frame.


Plan
  • Might go to the museum on Sunday.
  • Do laundry tomorrow.
  • Start "camping" at RSL (tbc)
  • Bought The guest cat today, try to finish half by sunday.

Urgh... another procrastinating day... I woke up at 3pm, but in my defence I stayed up until 3 yesterday to do HW. Done with the Linear Algebra things now at least. Who said that uni is all about partying? I'm dying with the workload. The worst thing is I have to motivate myself, since there's no deadline, (the tutorial HW aside), and everyone is working so so so hard that I feel like I'm falling behind...

Go to museum
Finish Maths tutorial HW

Midnight questioning...
[spoiler]
Tomorrow will be a better day, I tell myself. Just to distract from the work load and the pile of books I need to read. Am I delusional that I'm good at Physics? Am I even passionate enough to do it for the rest of my life? Can I even get a job? Wth is a Physics degree anyway? Everyone is working hard, everyone is learning hard, everyone is doing their best... and I'm falling behind...
I will go to bed now. Sorry. I can get a bit emotional when I'm stressed. No worries

The tutorial today was really good. We discussed about special relativity, the frame of reference and some related stuff. I asked about some resonance equation I read earlier and got a very great explanation. I think I should study a lot in advance and think of questions to ask the professor. Or abuse his mailbox

Kitty's here, today is a good day!

24/10/18
The V&M lectures are slowing down while Calculus is picking up the pace. Everything is kind of OK. The Maths tutorial was good, we have learnt some new perspective about matrices, random stuff that might be helpful and new ways of looking into things. Aiming to finish all the homework by tonight Had a good rest last night so I will stay up late tonight.
  • HW Physics and Maths (3 prob set)
