This is the first posting after a bit of a delay. The last couple of weeks have been rather
busy and even more demotivating. Last Thursday was not the best as my project was heavily
criticized in the review. Although I recognized that it wasn't the greatest design ever,
the air of negativity that pervades throughout the university makes it a most unenjoyable
place to be. Motivation and encouragement are not concepts employed by the majority of
lecturers and reviewers at this place, that's for sure.
