I took an exam and did my taxes. I have to xerox forms and send them in when I get back from break. My printer is out of black ink. You'd think it could use the other black ink, but apparently you'd be wrong. That's the special black ink.

I'm pleased about the taxes, because I was worried I should have paid estimated taxes, but it seems that wasn't necessary.

I'm less pleased about the exam. I spent about 8 hours on it. I think I was intended to spend more, as I answered perhaps 1/2 of the questions completely. I partially answered all of them, but there were some computations that I couldn't see how to make work. Possibly because I still don't understand calculus. (Which is getting old, yeah.) But I think he should have compassion about the computations, after the Poincare Lemma Debacle.

Anyway, I clearly did enough work to not get thrown out of the program or made to take another analysis class, which is the goal.

I haven't been to any sort of dance in a couple of weeks. I missed tonight's by working on that exam. But I have been to a couple of fairy events, which are also sanity-producing, if in a different way. Feelings! Are good for you.
