So. Today one of our math majors who graduated before I arrived at Agnes came back and ate lunch with the math department. I spent half of lunch with my (non-math) friends and the other half with the math department and Audrey. It was a great time. Although it was funny when Dr. Lewin actually came to the table I was sitting at with Sandra, Emily, and Shauna to remind me of this, and I had just blurted out, "It's a pyramid scheme with Tech guys!" (Don't ask me what that was about, for I have no idea.) She's heard more bizarre stuff from me. Trust me.

Anyway, just about everyone I told suggested I hit up the math department at Tech, for I would probably intimidate just about everyone else. Actually, I might intimidate them as well, for I have so much passion I might explode one day. Sure, they have passion, too, but I'm afraid some of them might balk if I tell them I write novels and nitpick grammar and stargaze on a regular basis. On the other hand, quite a few Tech people do NaNoWriMo. Hrm...

After this, Melissa, Nico, and I were about fifteen minutes late to probability since we hung around, and the whole math department knew it. We finally decided not to skip since they all knew we were there at the math lunch (Dr. Riddle wasn't there). Nobody showed up for a tour, so after waiting around the admissions office for a few minutes, I took advantage of the gorgeous day to head to Java Monkey. I cozied up in that outside part of Java Monkey with Dr. Nbook, number theory, probability, and French, and noticed this really cute guy sitting alone and reading a book. I tried to figure out how to approach him, and finally decided to return my finally-empty cup of hot chocolate and ask him what he was reading on my way back. But on my way back out, I saw him light a cigarette.

*sigh* Well, he was cute until then.

Also, I didn't get into Minnesota's REU. *sigh* Oh well. I still have five to hear from, and two to finish applications for. I should get to work on those and take my astronomy test and figure out how to entertain my parents and work on my number theory assignment...

With all this, who has time for guys?

I really know only a couple math/physics people who don't smoke :p

Both my parents smoke, and the smell alone is enough to drive me mad. Maybe it's why I do math. :P

In that case you need a hookah. With orange-vanilla tobacco :p

One of my friends does hookah. She keeps telling me it doesn't smell at all--"no really it doesn't". Seriously, though, you'd say I was drugged up if you saw the blood content in my caffeine stream.

And I thought you didn't want somebody who did drugs :)

But caffeine doesn't count! :P

I feel the same way about heroin :)

Good luck telling everyone else that one.
