Sorry no post today guys

Have a super fun thermo test tomorrow and as Arnold Sommerfeld puts it...

“Thermodynamics is a funny subject. The first time you go through it, you
don’t understand it at all. The second time you go through it, you think you
understand it, except for one or two small points. The third time you go
through it, you know you don’t understand it, but by that time you are so
used to it, it doesn’t bother you any more.” – Arnold Sommerfeld

He was also nominated for a nobel prize a record 81 times (never won).  Six of his students won nobel prizes.

So yeah, I need to study :(

  1. I feel like that whenever I'm pushed into new neuroscience/behavioral psych articles for my graduate studies. A wave of confusion just passes over you and you feel like you're lost at sea.

  9. Most of my friends were in thermo when I took it. That's the reason I didn't learn as much as I should have.
