The first week or so of classes has treated me rather well, I suppose. My classes are all good, and I feel that I can learn a lot from them. Until yesterday I was feeling a bit lost in Lie algebras, but then one of the course textbooks arrived. I haven’t read too much of it yet, but it seems terrific! He goes so fast in the lectures that I can’t stop to think about what anything means, so it’s good that now I have a good reference. He seems to be following it fairly closely as well.
That class ended rather abruptly yesterday when the professor somehow found out that he had to pick up his daughter from a daycare in Thousand Oaks which needed to be evacuated due to the fire in that area. I hope everything is okay.
