It’s midterm central around here. We had an in-class midterm in complex analysis on Wednesday. Fortunately, that was rather easy. We also have a take-home midterm due tomorrow. It’s also easy, but it involves messy computations. I have one part remaining, and I’ll get around to doing it at some point. Then we have algebra on Wednesday. I doubt it will be that bad, but yesterday a bunch of us were working on some problems. We kept getting one step away from the solutions. That’s always really annoying.

A bunch of people tried to convince me in comments to my last entry that I am in fact not a boring person. Thank you!

I have to rewrite a few measures of my dance movement for counterpoint, but Dr. Feigin said it’s not the end of the world since that has already happened.

Incidentally, I told confuted that I could complete my graduation requirements this year and might do so and then graduate in the spring. I continued by saying it would be a poor career decision but a good personal decision. I explained the first and left the second as an exercise to the reader. The exercise is as of yet unsolved by him.

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.

what would you do after you graduate?

I’d go to graduate school. What else?

… because you’d learn lots more cool stuff!

If I don’t go to graduate school, then I’ll learn lots more cool stuff?

No, the opposite… if you go to graduate school, you learn lots more cool stuff (at least as far as I understand it). Of course, at this point the thread has confused me beyond all reason, so it’s quite possible I’m not making sense anymore.
