One of my classes has a group project for which we need to make a Rube Goldberg machine. I've been leading the group, helping spur the brainstorming, planning the meetings, etc. I was at the machine shop from 11-4 today working on it, and no one else showed up.

So ya know that part that I fucked up on the lathe yesterday? Well, the solution was I was just going to make a shim for it to get the length correct again. Turns out, it was gonna need shims anyways. So they had me worrying all day about it, and had me angry about messing up and needing to do more work to fix it,…

Long day. A lot of class, a lot of work, and then I fucked up a machining a part worth $100 on the TL1. Stupid mistake, it was late, I was tired, it shouldn't have happened, and I'm pissed. It's fixable, but damn I'm pissed.
