Still here August 9, 2010

Despite the light posting, I’m still alive. Just very boring.

I’ve just come back from a family vacation; now I’m home, planning for the start of school and trying to locate things in New Haven. (There is a Target on the bus route — huzzah!) Also picked out math courses.

My only math-related news is continuing to read through Atiyah-Macdonald and Hatcher’s Algebraic Topology. I’m liking Hatcher — it’s much more concrete and example-based than the book I used for algebraic topology in undergrad (From Calculus to Cohomology). Little pictures of triangles, to be completely honest, make the boundary operator a lot more intuitive.

In non-math news: Truman Capote’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s is really worth reading. The movie is pretty much fashionista froth, not that there’s anything wrong with that, but the book is profound.
