trying to crowdfund grad school
I'll be cleaning this up over the weeks to come, but in addition to looking for standard funding sources, I'm opening the tip jar.
I'm a math grad student, persistently cashflow-negative, trying to hold up the finances through my masters thesis before I can get into a phd (hence paid) position.

A good online friend of mine has finally (finally!!) obtained an opportunity. This will get her out of the frying pan and back into the wide world of the employed academic. I cannot express how hard she's worked for this!
Just one catch: She has to get there.

I watched this with my daughter last night, and now she wants to build the layers cube from it .. and I want to play with some of the algebra. Perfect balance of fun for all levels.
