    It's just about arc building time.

    So long, summer!

    September 16, 2010

    And so it begins again - classes, new freshmen, impromptu dance parties, homework, club commitments, rain & puddle jumping, homework, work work, changing leaves - but somehow, I'm not quite ready to give up on August. And so I present here a few words about and snapshots of the last threads of summer.

    So! I got to Budapest, but my wifi antenna broke, so it was really hard to use the internet. That was okay, though, because I didn't really have time to use the internet, since I was busy getting used to the city and meeting all of the awesome people in this program. I learned some Hungarian for a few weeks, during which I got a bad cold and didn't feel like posting, and then I was going to post but I ended up going to Romania, so I didn't have time. In Romania I saw some beautiful cathedrals and went biking in the Carpathian Mountains, where I fell off my bike going downhill at high speed and fractured my collarbone into three pieces. I went to a really sketchy Romanian hospital and got a sling, and then got sent back to Budapest and then classes began. So far math has been wonderful, but very very time-consuming, and we're still not sure whether my shoulder will need surgery, and, if so, whether I need to return to America. So that's what happened.
