    Just Memories Now

    I never had problems with falling asleep in class, except in my last semesters of study. I guess graduate studies were beginning to go over my head, and lack of understanding led to sleepiness. But that isn't the whole story, as now I get drowsy even in training classes at work...

    Yeah Well, I Was Bored.

    Circuit theory, engineering physics, all my computer programming classes - all with at least one time per class. Circuit theory was just boring and difficult, but I should say dozed off rather than fell asleep.  I learned everything I knew by reading on my own and going to...
