I may be a mathematician, but I don't think I need to be to know that we can't treat finite resources as infinite

I didn't realize how truly dull this term was until I sat down today and started doing some introductory matchings problems to brush up on my knowledge and am having a really good time.

well suddenly this at least partially explains why so many of us are so bad at taking compliments

This week is gonna be cool!! Eating lunch with some cool graph theory girls, then heading to an undergrad conference (my first one :0!!)

Me talking to other girls in graph theory: πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ₯°πŸ˜πŸ₯°πŸ˜β™₯️😘😘😘β™₯️β™₯️β™₯️β™₯️β™₯️❣️❣️❀️β™₯️πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’žπŸ’žπŸ’žπŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ˜»πŸ˜»πŸ˜»πŸ˜˜πŸ˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ’ŸπŸ’˜πŸ’˜πŸ’˜πŸ’˜

Obviously an oversimplification but I always find it funny when I'll tell someone in my program that my room mates are pagan and into witchcraft and it's almost always scoffed at. Let people have fun you goobies!

Mathematicians: I don't believe in the paranormal because there's no proof that it's true, it's all anecdotal evidence.

Also mathematicians: My life work is trying to prove this thing is true because all the examples seem to work

Heart warming: seeing a map coloured in using 4 colours, as god intended

Someone in my class asked the reasoning behind why a coloop of a matroid is never in a circuit and my professor gave a reasonable explanation.

Another student says "If you think about it, in a graph a coloop is a bridge"

My professor says "That's true but that doesn't prove it for all matroids, just graphic"

"I mean. Who cares about the other ones?"

.........I felt that.

My partners friend was asking me what I do and he used to study engineering, so I could actually tell him what I study instead of the elevator pitch

Uber driver: what do you study?

Me: Math!

Uber driver: what type of math?

Me: (((sweats profusely)))

Nothing is more refreshing than making small talk with someone and it turns out they actually know what your major means

@sydneyfalk French people: "Our language is glorious and pure, unlike that mongrel English"

French language: *is Latin in mime makeup and a circumflex-shaped hΓ’t*

Sometimes I miss being hypomanic when I'm stable because of how much work I can get done, but then I remember how much I overshare with my professors and embarrass myself and then I get over it pretty fast πŸ˜…

Today I found out that I was approved for funding for an undergraduate math conference and that the instructor who literally changed my life as a math student is probably moving back to North America in 2020. So it's been a good day.
