I finally managed to convince my fountain pen to work. So now I need to learn how to use it. I suppose the best way to learn how to use it just to use it a lot. I imagine a fountain pen will work better than a ballpoint pen in my notebooks since the paper in my notebooks is much thicker and coarser than usual.

I understood a little bit of the conference yesterday. Actually, I suppose that the only thing I understood at all was Timothy Redmond’s talk. But I also learned that professional mathematicians usually don’t understand that much at math conferences either, so maybe I’m not as much of a failure as I thought I was.
Ah yes. Starbucks is open at 9AM on Sunday mornings. Perhaps that means that I don’t need to be awake for six hours before eating anything on weekends. Somehow, I ate a lot of food yesterday, but I was still feeling very week from a lack of it.
