I'm just a regular student who is stressed and can't fall asleep every night. I have lots to say to this world, but no one is listening, not because people intended ignoring me, just because I'm not that important, and we all understand that.
The spring breaks just started, and I wasted the very first day successfully, which is probably the only thing I know how to succeed at this moment. I just felt burned out at this moment, after three hard exams, piles of assignments, and the stress from my research. Not whining, but this semester is way harder than I can ever imagine...
It turns out that in WakaTime, I use the most.
Not sure whether this is a good thing or not😅, since it somehow indicates how busy I'm writing math stuff instead of working on my research... But at least I can now say I'm the No.1 in the world lmao.1
I think I should at least write something before the summer break ends otherwise this wonderful summer will be left blank in my website, which is just not true. In this three months, I learn much more than the past three years in my college life: not only academically, but all other aspects as well. I have three interesting and exciting projects run in parallel, and although they are not quite the same, but still tightly related. I hope I get time to say more about it, but this is not the right time, so wait for it!
Finally, I decide not to get another math degree. Not because I'm bad at math, but because of the unexpected complexity of doing a triple-degree. In the past year, I learn linear programming, measure theory, algebraic topology, and are currently learning functional analysis and nonlinear optimization. And if I still choose to purse a math degree at UMich, I can't learn what I want to learn (I plan to take multi-variables complex analysis and stochastic process theory the next term) otherwise I can't graduate in the expected term, i.e., Winter 23, since I'll need to spend 12 credits on something I don't really like to fulfill the degree requirement 😥. Hence, I make a big move: I quit! I think I should not bother myself with a meaningless degree since I have other promising proofs which shows my math knowledge.
