After doing some reading, it seems some things will never change(or at least, not in my lifetime).
And yet, not all changes are good.

Ah well, them's the breaks.

Last night I had a good sleep, for the first(or maybe the second?) time in a month. Whew.
I'm no longer plagued by mathematics as I try(in vain) to fall asleep. Why? Because holidays is here. No more late nights for me.

Of course I'm still going to study maths even if it's holidays, but this time it's because I want to, not because I need to.
Wrapping my head around holomorphic functions, product spaces, algebraic graph theory etc is so much more fun when I do not have a friggin' deadline.
Sometimes it felt like a gun was pressed up against my temples....heh.

Then again, would I really have it any other way? I've heard that mathematicians are like addicts...indeed being without maths sometimes cause me to be unsettled.
Ah well....to each his own. And for me, a blissful sleep tonight.

Group Theory, Graph Theory, Complex Analysis, Measure Theory, Topology.
A man can only take so much....
Wonder how the greats did it, men like Jordan....

10 hours per paper per week....40 hours per week at the very least.
Damn that's a lot....especially since my previous exertions were way below that.
As Archimedes would put it,
"Transire suum pectus mundoque potiri" (Rise above oneself and grasp the world)
