It is with a heavy heart that I write to tell you that I have withdrawn from your CSE 431 class. I enjoyed the lectures and learning the material, but I felt stretched too thin this quarter, and this class unfortunately was the casualty.

This is my first ever withdrawal from any class, ever, after the first week of classes. It wasn’t an easy decision but I think it was the right one.

Blessed Sleep

Four hours two nights ago followed by about one hour from 9:30-10:30 today really wasn’t enough; fortunately I had some reserves stored up from earlier in the week. On the other hand, I did finish the homework due today as well as made my first useful contribution on the robotics capstone project, which is a good feeling.

Tonight I’ll be getting a full night’s sleep in preparation for an interview at Microsoft in about 9 hours.
