Am I a nice guy? No, but I have a sweet Fedora (Linux)!

Typing a Paper – 4

Still got’s me some ADHD. It’s about 4:20 AM. I am very tired. But I’ve made some progress. I’m sure hoping I’m ready for prime time.

During my drive, I realized how hard it is to write papers. They’re these monstrous, annoying, spike-encrusted walls that you’re forced to climb slowly to prove you can find the safest way up the wall.

Time Spent so Far: 8.5 Hours
Outlook: Only half-way typed?! F&@$
