Since I chose a new thesis topic in January, I have found it quite difficult to make significant progress (or what I personally feel is significant progress) on the design. This is partially due to the fact that I will have to rewrite all of my thesis paper over again, thus I have been trying to conduct research and design simultaneously. I have been struggling to find the balance between these two; if I am reading and researching then I am not designing, and if I am designing I am not researching. Looks like I am going to have to suck it up for a night or two and buckle down to really knock out some research. From there I should be able to design much more efficiently and with more knowledge and research to support my decisions.
