Programmable Logic Controllers

Yeah. PLC's.

They're so awesome in how they make everything just so much better.

They're so awesome in how they make me just so much better.

Hooke's Law

F = -kx

This applies to springs.

Fitting, since I am so sprung.

F is a force. Like her.


Angular Momentum

Angular momentum is defined as:

L = m*v*r*sin(theta)

L = r x p

Said if I could go back and make it happen faster, don't you know I would baby, if I could

Wowemy. Another post. Whatever. I knew it would be like this, haha.

So yeah. That Keri Hilson song. It's been stuck in my head for the past week now....though that's my own fault since I've been playing it on repeat since Tuesday or so.'s a good song. But my main focus on this song is Ne-Yo's verse, especially the words that are present in this post's title.

"Said if I could go back and make it happen faster, don't you know I would baby, if I could."

You have no idea how true this statement is.
Oh yeah. Funny thing is, this applies in general and to specific situations as well.

It's not that I have any regrets or anything. Far from it. I'm so incredibly pleased. But the words still ring true. If I could go back and make it happen faster or earlier, I would do so in a heartbeat. If I could.

But since I can't, then I guess I'll have to settle for what's transpired.
And you know what? If that's what settling is, then I'll do it right this second.
In fact, I'm kind of torn, to be honest. Having it be earlier is a good thing. But, I am just so darn delighted, ecstatic, joyous, jubilant, overjoyed, pleased, thrilled, gleeful, elated, etc. that I also don't want to change things.

Yeah. Contentment is a very good feeling.

So I just realized that I'm totally saying two things. They are:

1. I would love to have it be so that things started earlier.
2. Things are good. I wouldn't change them for the world.

Both are true statements. Both apply. But in the end, 2 wins out. Why? Contentment and happiness > things that won't happen

So again. I'm content. And I love it. The overall joy that's caused is reason enough to keep going.
And like I said earlier, because of that joy, I'm going to give it my 100% to make sure I return the favor and keep you happy as well.

P.S. All of this contentment and jubilation and whatnot is for everything. Overall. All of it. Not just any one day. Not just any one event. The combination of it all is what makes it all work.

P.P.S. The combination of it all. Just like I've said. The combination of it all means that the question to ask me isn't, "Why?" Instead it is, "What took you so long to see it and go for it?"
Combine all of those things that I mentioned to you together in that whole package, and you get one effective missile.

P.P.P.S. I don't expect people to fully understand what I'm saying in these last few notes, except a select few. And when I ask you about it, you'd better answer me, telling me exactly what it is I'm saying, haha.

And oh yeah. I love this.

The best of the best of the best. Sir.

Thanks to Emil for one of my now-favorite phrases.

This post is a long time coming. I could have written it a long time ago. I can write it now. I will be able to write it in the future. It applies at all times.

Anyway. Yeah. The best of the best of the best. Sir. You all know what I'm talking about.

And you know, this doesn't just apply today. I can't stop smiling. But yeah, today was just an added benefit and bonus. Even without today, it's still the best of the best of the best. Sir.

I really can't ask for much else. All I ask is staying the same, keeping me happy. I'll do my best to return the favor and then some.

But yes.
One more time.

The best of the best of the best. Sir. Ma'am.

Feels Like I’m in a Race, but I Already Won First Place

Grrrrr. You chicken.
Hahaha, I just had to say that....though it still applies.

So much for the more assertive and assured Jeremy. He only exists in your head, dude. Doesn't exist in real life....yet. He is hopefully going to show up soon, though.

Gah. I'm being melancholy, and this post is supposed to be the opposite....

Okay. Change of moods.

Today has pretty much come and gone. I'm at home, and the day is winding down. I don't foresee myself doing too much else aside from the usual. And you know what, I'm okay with that. Honestly. Even factoring in what happened earlier, I'd say that the entire day as a whole was a success.

Then again, I didn't even do anything aside from give my probably-unneeded input. Haha, I hope that was okay though. Just like I hope that the jamba juice was a nice touch. I hope.
Let's hope.

Wow! Still in a somewhat negative tone. Change it up!

So yeah. After 4 days, any sort of contact was welcomed and craved. And nothing disappointed....well aside from myself.

But nothing on that other end was short of perfect; like I've said: candle holding.
After being so excited for the last four days, even more so yesterday, I'm now like 2523523523 times as excited for Thursday. What can I say? I'm addicted.

Earlier, Derek said to me, "I've been so lucky recently." You know what Derek? I've been sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo incredibly lucky, recently too. Especially the last two weeks, but even since mid-February. Or I could take it a step further and say since Winter Quarter began. Or, even better, since I became an officer.


I hate leaving. It sucks. But I guess I can deal with it, because I know that I "already won first place."
I have no complaints. At all.
Just knowing that I have it, makes up for any negatives.

Happiness >>> anything else

Breaking the rules, me and you, you and I

Sometimes, I wonder if my over-analysis is unneeded. I guess it sort of was in this case. I mean, had I not said anything, I might not need to try and remember these newly-created rules. But what else was I supposed to do? It's not in my personality to just let things flow like that. I HAVE to analyze. I don't know. It's a habit. Sorry.

Not only that, but I guess I'm so wary of making a mistake. I'm too cautious right now in fear of doing something wrong and causing any errors. I know I should be assertive and sure of myself, but I can't fight that urge to keep things perfect. I'd rather ask questions to be sure of the answers, rather than just be spontaneous, go for it, only to be rebuffed. I'd like to avoid that denial as much as I can.

So for now, I'll play it safe, I guess. I mean, now that I know the "rules" I know the extent to which I can safely travel. Not that I will always stay behind that line. Rules are meant to be broken, of course, especially when I can't help myself. And trust me. I won't be able to help myself many times.

Like I've said, the appeal is always there. It's up to me if I can stand it. Probably not, because in the end...

the allure > my inclination to always follow the rules

Thursday was already slightly different. Come Tuesday, things will be completely different.

I'll definitely be more assured and absolute about things. And yes, while I will follow to an extent, it won't always happen.

That's the plan, Jeremy. That's the plan. Stick to it.

Lucky....part 2

Without a doubt.
Most definitely.
Most certainly.

Grrr + Gah

= Grrrahhhh

Tones of Frustration

Hahahaha. I told you I was going to put this here.'s time to tone it all down, I guess. Not that I want to, hence the frustration. Nevertheless, I will do so because it's only right and it's only fair.
Then again, the whole flip-flopping thing didn't really help in my decision making.

I don't know...I'll see how it goes. It all depends on how much control I'm able to keep. And like I said, sometimes, that control just doesn't work too well, considering how weak my will power is. And, you always have to consider the appeal and the actual desire for control.

We shall see.

Oh. And toning it down ≠ getting rid of it completely. That will never, ever happen.

Grrrrr. Grrrrrr.

You big, big chicken. Stop it.


you chicken


What is this? A normal post? Yayemy!

EE students have certain requirements to graduate. All undergrads are required to take three classes (215, 233, 235) for a total of 14 credits. They are then supposed to choose one of the 14 different concentrations. My concentration, embedded systems, required 271, 331, 332, 471, 472, and 478 for a total of 30 credits. That right there is 44 credits. EE's are also required to have at least 58 total EE credits, two of which can come from seminars. Finally, we are required to have a total of 68 engineering credits; 58 are EE and the other 10 can come from any other engineering department.

So if you count the 44 that I need for embedded, I need 14 more EE credits. That comes from 341 (5), 436 (4), and 476 (5). So I'm at 58. I also took two 1-credit seminars to put me at 60. Finally, I took AA 210 and MSE 170 at four credits each to put me exactly at 68.

Time to complain.

One of those 1-credit seminars was actually graded; we had to write weekly responses and also a final paper. That class sucked. Also sucking was MSE 170. I hate this class so much that I stopped going to it in the beginning of February. I only went to labs. These two classes total 5 credits.

When I signed up for Winter Quarter, I had planned that my Spring Quarter would only have EE 478 and two easy classes. I didn't care which ones. Midway through the quarter, when I registered, I realized that I should probably take EE 351 and make myself more well-rounded. 351 is 5 credits. Had I known I was going to take 351 in the Spring, I could have completely avoided taking MSE 170 and EE 398 and avoid two of my least favorite classes at UW. And you know what's worse? Instead of taking those two classes, I could have taken Astronomy 150, which I've wanted to take since coming to UW, but never got a chance to.

Sigh. Back to studying for 170. Ew.

My Vision's Never Been So Clear

Yes, those are lyrics. Figure out where they're from.
...or just ask me. Anyway...

Leaving was really hard to do. I hate that feeling.
But....I am still happy. Oh so happy.

Now if only I would stop chickening out. Though...I guess I'll keep chickening out until I know it won't be frowned upon.
But....I am still happy. Oh so happy.

Floating like a Butterfly

I love that feeling.

The extensive giddiness.
The delirious happiness.
The feeling where you want to just jump for joy.
The feeling that makes you distracted because you're so gleeful.
That blissful sense of cheer.
The one that puts a smile on your face no matter what else is going on.

Yeah, that feeling.

And knowing that it's two makes it 3463735457445745236262523 times better.

Combination of Words

Yes, this is the same BT that I posted about before. If you know what that was, then you know what this is.

I really, really like this. It's not 100% accurate, but it does somewhat fit

A combination of words. I don't know. I think I need to come up with the perfect combination before I approach this issue. Maybe it's a good thing that I didn't get a chance to mention it today. Yeah. Sorry about that. I wanted to, but it was later than I expected and by then, I had lost my nerve. Hopefully soon I'll be able to talk about this.

I really want to say it.

Knowing me, though, I'll start the talk really slowly and either speed up to a moderate pace or go straight to a fast pace. And you know what? I'm fine with either one.
Slow is okay, but I think I'm progressing past that. So....
Moderate is okay.
Fast is okay.

And if you know anything about me, then you'll know that what I just said has a hidden meaning behind it.

Wow. It's 12:25 and I have more essaying to do.

Good night!

Wow, a post that has nothing to do with the subject of my last six or so, haha.

Anyway, I hate work with such a passion. I hate it. I hate it hate it hate it. I hate my boss's emails with the nonsensical and horribly constructed sentences and her poor punctuation and grammar. I dislike many of my coworkers, especially the lazy ones that don't do anything; I usually have to pick up their slack. I hate the systems we use because they are so slow and I am too impatient to even think of having any patience.

This is a total waste of my time. I barely do anything on Sundays now. I basically sit around for 8.5 hours and try to avoid doing as much work as possible. And you know what? It works. I fell asleep twice today, haha. Like other Sundays, I did very little work, and I'm quite happy with that.

If it weren't for the money, I'd have quit 2-3 years ago. Boy. I really hope I get a useful job soon, otherwise, I'm bound to go insane working full-time over the summer again.

And yes, I know I'm complaining, but I don't care, haha. I've been working here for 5 years. I've been annoyed for 5 years. I deserve some slack, hahaha.

Length of time

did you know that 5+17+18 = 40?

In my case, it also equals boredom removal.

And it equates to extreme contentment, as well.

Possessive pronouns and definite articles

Hmm...whenever I get into that mode, and you know it's bound to happen, all I need to remember is this:

my > the

Yes! I win! Again, not that that has any basis, but I win. I know it's irrational, but I win.

Now...when I thought about writing this post, I had a really, really good closing line. Something that fit the whole idea of possession perfectly. Too bad that I've forgotten it since then. So instead of my clever, witty, awesome ending, I will instead end with:

Two hours

By far, some of the most enjoyable hours I've had in a while.
I wanted to sleep, but I am just so happy (still), that I wanted to write about it.

So yay!

Thanks for those two hours. I'm still overjoyed, hahaha.

BP and BT

Got me all started listening to this again, haha. Also add in SG. Oh boy oh boy.


the whole world fits inside of my arms.

Letting Go

I didn't want to let go either.
