My ears are still ringing.
Class. There was a quiz and for some reason I blanked on the thing. It was either recite a theorem or calculate the variance of something, and I was like, "Frig! Theorem? Variance? What's a variance?!" Fortunately, most people apparently did the same. It's hard to get started in the semester. TO DO: make a sheet that tells me all this probability and linear algebra stuff, make a sheet that has important theorems and formulas on it.
I'm getting a doughnut. I've been terribly hungry the last few days. I think I have been eating less, and that explains it. I've been training irregularly. I think 4 times in 13 days, which doesn't sound so bad, since it should be 5 or 6, but that spread makes me intuitively eat less. Still, I've managed to put 5# on my squat each time I make it to the gym, which is what you expect when you're still putting on strength (today is 150kg). If all goes according to plan, and that's a big if, I'll be at 160kg for three sets of five before Lent. Not impressive, but decent, and something I can probably maintain while eating less. I'll certainly make it to 155kg, though.
When in college, one of the things everybody had to do was take either 2 or 3 quarters of a humanities sequence, there were several, but people referred to it as "Hum", pronounced like the first syllable of humanities. People often read Hume in these classes. There's a pun or something to be made somewhere. Anyway, the classes weren't so bad, you'd write 4-8 page papers arguing things, they weren't serious enough yet that you had to read secondary sources. They were the sort of things you could bang out if you read the book, paid attention in class discussion, and were opinionated and passionate about whatever you were reading, and that's all they were really looking for. I only share this because somebody mentioned Hume somewhere. I like Hume.
It's unfortunate, I always thought it would be great to take literature classes. I liked reading, I liked class discussions, but I wasn't particularly interested in writing papers that were much more than what I mentioned in the previous paragraph.
What I am getting more interested in: economics or statistics, probably less statistics. Statistics is more toward the realm of math that I don't like so much, with all sorts of ugly capital sigmas and indices, but it's a necessary evil.
