Well, I decided to change my game plan. I've found that it's just too hard for me to keep focused on reading the same text all the way through. So, I decide to break my time up more appropriately and give myself longer to read the texts that I have. In the meantime I'll continue to work on my two main projects and read a bit less. That way, I can begin applying what I'm reading as well, and I'm less likely to forget as much.
I'm still working on a general garbage collector that I'll be able to draw upon for any application and use specifically for that app. Not really much more to say right now. I've got to take a trip for work Wednesday morning. I'm going to the main office for the first time for some additional training.
