Oh man oh man oh man. I am feeling pretty low right now. Advisor meeting went okay, but the compilers test was really painful. I actually knew what I was saying for some of the questions, but I was stretching and guessing at most, and completely had no idea what was going on in the last question, which presented chunks of SUIF and asked us to not only (a) understand them without the API at hand and (b) find bugs in them but also (c) produce input code which tickled the bugs. Ack ack ack. I couldn't ever figure out what the code was supposed to do in either of the two cases.
I know that two particular classes and one research project aren't representative of my worth as a human being, and I know I've lectured enough people not to let it get to them, but damn if it isn't hard to ignore the fact that I feel like I'm sinking into failure in all three right now.
Oh well. Tonight I should just get some food and rest and tomorrow start chewing away at some of these projects.
