Ha. This is perfect. Thank you neverwherecalling!

Phew. Was waiting in the hallway with some other students waiting for the door to open. Turns out one of the people waiting was the teacher. Glad I didn’t express my dislike of being required to take a zero credit course on communications on a Saturday.

On campus for Saturday class. Already wishing it started earlier than 1. Getting out of class at 3 seems like it’s going to be a bit painful every week.


Book rests, tee shirts, coffee mugs, and more literary finds in this week’s Book Fetish.

I love you more than words. And I am a big fan of words.

Interview with Maryam Mirzakhani, the brilliant Iranian mathematician who was the first woman to win the Fields Medal

  • Interviewer: What advice would you give lay persons who would
  • like to know more about mathematics—what it is,
  • what its role in our society has been and so on?
  • What should they read? How should they proceed?
  • Dr. Mirzakhani: This is a difficult question. I don’t think that everyone
  • should become a mathematician, but I do believe that
  • many students don’t give mathematics a real chance.
  • I did poorly in math for a couple of years in middle
  • school; I was just not interested in thinking about it.
  • I can see that without being excited mathematics can
  • look pointless and cold. The beauty of mathematics
  • only shows itself to more patient followers.

Finn seems to be coming back, you are right. I’m reading The Martian, based on your review. Loving it so far!

Yeah! THE MARTIAN has been one of my favorite reads all year. Glad you’re enjoying it so far!

I’m about a quarter into INCARCERON. It’s different than I was expecting but it is holding my attention.
I forgot who recommended this to me. If it was you let me know!

Also, when did the name Finn get so popular? I feel like I see/hear it more and more in pop culture.

Personal info wise I'm pretty awesome, occasionally funny, and frequently getting lost.

I live in NYC and work for a large academic book publisher.
