"I think I can safely say that nobody understands quantum mechanics." -- Richard Feynman

"So I hope you accept Nature as She is -- absurd." -- Richard Feynman

"If anybody says he can think about quantum theory without getting giddy, it merely shows that he hasn't understood the first thing about it." -- Niels Bohr

Interests
Hey, guys.  Lately I've been feeling compelled to actually get some more stuff up here, so I thought I might as well pop in to say hi.  I'm not sure if this temporary burst of momentum will result in anything of value, and I might be slowed down by some upcoming tests and having to prepare for exams in December, but here I am anyway.

Admittedly, my interest was largely piqued by this Sta.sh thing.  I might be a bit too late to be commenting on it, but I think it's pretty neat.  Since the bulk of what I contribute here is huge blocks of test that no human being could conceivably write in one sitting, I find the ability to save some of my writings and leave them until they're ready to be submitted to be pretty useful, and it cuts out the middleman that is Microsoft Word, making the whole process less awkward.  Mind you, I already had a bit of trouble with Sta.sh, so it might not be as useful as I thought it would be.  It might have just been me messing up instead of it, though, so I guess I'll just have to wait and see...

As for how I'm doing at university, things are going great.  I'm having a good time here, I'm enjoying my classes, especially physics, and doing pretty well, with the one big exception of linear algebra, which is gradually growing into the bane of my existence.  It's a sneaky little bastard, having an easy first chapter made of stuff we're mostly familiar with, and buttering us up by implicitly teaching us how to forge credit card numbers, before suddenly veering off into stuff completely unlike anything I've ever seen in high school.  I'm doing pretty badly in this course, which annoys me, since I need it to get into any physics module, and I've already bumped into a few areas where the material applies to physics...

I feel mean snapping at linear algebra.  I mean, it's not really it's fault.  I guess I really could be putting a bit more effort into studying and doing the work.  I'm kind of trying to pick up the slack, but most of my attempts at studying essentially boil down to me staring at the homework questions and being all www.youtube.com/watch?v=t348e2… 

I also really like my chem prof.  It is possible that he could be approaching the same levels of awesomeness as my grade 12 physics teacher.  Seriously.  I have funny stuff he's said during lectures scribbled all over the margins of my chemistry notes so that I can share them later.  Actually, I'd say my university's chemistry department as a whole is pretty awesome.  Except for the fact that the chemistry club apparently has t-shirts with an uncertainty principal joke printed on them.  Not cool.  That is our joke.  Heisenberg was a physicist.  He won the Nobel prize in physics.  They have no right to tell it.

Okay, I'm mostly joking.  They really do seem pretty cool.  And it's not just academics I'm obsessing about here, honest.  I'm really having a great time overall.

And I now know what a tensor acts like!  This is completely random and only people who were in my physics class last year will get the joke, but it was genuinely a massive moment of enlightenment for me.  It all makes sense...  Everything fits together...  Although, given my frustration with linear algebra and matrices, it's not all sunshine and rainbows...

So yeah.  Other than that, there isn't much else to say.  I'm not particularly hyped about anything that's coming up soon, so I guess I don't really have much to rant about at this time.  I guess I might as well get back to work, whether it's schoolwork, something for here, or pretending that I'm actually working.  See ya.  :D
