amélie: people > gnomes

(no subject)

First, Dr. Koch sent out my letters of recommendation yesterday. Electrons headed out toward Clemson, Duluth, Valpo, and Mt. Holyoke. Yay. This is good. The bad part is that I haven't finished my applications for Valpo and Mt. Holyoke. I definitely need to do that this weekend before they think, "Um, who's this person? We haven't gotten her application yet." Those two are next; actually, Valpo was next on the deadline list anyway.

I turned in my number theory assignment today after staying up until midnight last night to finish it. I filled both boards in the LSC with my scratchwork and progress, as it made such a nice change over doing it on paper. I was also much more productive in the process. Unfortunately, I didn't have my camera with me, so we don't get pictures of my beautiful math. Oh well.

Oh! Emily, Sandra, and I just got back from Emory, where we watched Brokeback Mountain and stayed around for part of the discussion afterward. Tonight was my first time seeing the movie, and I liked it a lot. What struck me, though, was the audience. It was hosted by some psychoanalytic society at Emory, but Emily, Sandra and I were three of about five college students there. Everyone else was at least forty, and a lot of them appeared to know each other. There was this one hilarious woman in the back row who made a couple of remarks about Freud and boys imitating their mothers at an early age, and later about monotheism and homosexuality.

Somehow I don't think it was coincidence that a bunch of people left after she made that second comment. We left a few minutes later too, but not because of that; we were getting a little bored.

On the bright side, next week might be a problem set-free week. Oh, wait. There's the number theory test. Guess I can't speak so quickly.

Also, I REALLY need to get laundry detergent. I'm almost out now, and I really need to do laundry.
