02.28.17 Tuesday, Still Behind

A whole week has passed. I was already behind and now I am more behind. I have spent the last week screwing around with illustrator and the laser cutter. I mostly worked on my Studio work but I had the idea that I needed to be able to do it to build the robots anyway. I should have just followed the schedule Gene and I made.

No… I do need to learn Illustrator. I have to be able to cut out parts for these robots. I know I could find another way, but that would be a short-term answer. In the long term, I need these skills. I am doing this for the skills so that I can expand and do the things I really want to do.
