Day one, cloudy,
(12/??, the first thing I noticed is that when I start writing this dairy on subway, I have completely no clue what date it is today!! and what time it is now!! The biggest function of a half kilo dollar full-loaded electronic device is to replace a time piece…)
The clock in the living room happened to run out of battery in the midnight. 秒针在27分的位置上无助的摆动但没有足够的动能跳到下一格，短针停在3和4之间。
路上不能查email和微信，不知道老板是否发了什么指示，也不能和小情人（们）打情骂俏，连歌也不能听，有点boring. I thought that I would have started noticing the beautiful color of sky, or hearing the singing of the birds. But sorry, that kind of piffany only happens in the movie.
I read Andreev Reflection in Strong Magnetic Fields when I was waiting on the platform instead of playing 植物大战僵尸2. But the absent of phone hasn’t helped to sink my mind into the equations, yet. So I start writing down this. Now is time to change train and re-start the reading. Just to clear all the thoughts keeping overflowing out of my head, today’s plan is:
- Finish reading this paper.
- Leak test the recovery line (I should probably teach the new student to do it). Then fix all the leaking joints.
- Setup the Labview and teach the student the basis, so that he can write drivers for the new Zurich lockin during the weekend.
- Call (but I don’t have a phone!!) McMaster-Carr to figure out the components for the bed.
In the end, I finished the reading the second day.
The leak test was a totally failure, the pipe was leaking like a sponge. Why no new students can be as accountable as I was in their age?
Completely forgot about calling McMaster-Carr. But I found most of the components on their website. A good sign!!
It seems that turning off the phone only stopped the distractions. But I still need to learn “first thing first”!
