I thought something interesting had happened over the past week, but now I can’t think of anything interesting at all. Well, I did get three new math books, so that was good.

Ah, but one very interesting thing this week actually did happen. On Thursday, I joined Jon and Jeff and someone else I hadn’t met before for breakfast. Somehow, he found out about my “unconventional” sleep hours and said that he had heard that there was someone named Simon in Pendola who adopts those same 9:30-5:30 sleep hours, and he asked if I was the one. I said I was. He said that those hours were really annoying his roommate, and I’m glad about that, although I really shouldn’t be. But I guess my logic is that I shouldn’t be the only one suffering from this ridiculous pairing. I think this fellow agrees with me that my desire to get work done efficiently should take precendence over my roommate’s desire to play computer games during peak hours. He said that he was “glad to meet the man behind the legend.” That really is a very roundabout way for one to find out that one’s roommate is displeased with the situation.

I’m running low on my supply of interesting events.

Going through the geography page on Wikipedia is fun.


About Simon

Hi. I'm Simon Rubinstein-Salzedo. I'm a mathematics postdoc at Dartmouth College. I'm also a musician; I play piano and cello, and I also sometimes compose music and study musicology. I also like to play chess and write calligraphy. This blog is a catalogue of some of my thoughts. I write them down so that I understand them better. But sometimes other people find them interesting as well, so I happily share them with my small corner of the world.
