the real airhead

Posted in Uncategorized at 6:43 pm by changisme

These math papers are driving me crazy. They are really incomprehensible. It’s probably partly because of the content, but also just because of me. It sort of reminded me of my elementary school years. I’ve never been at top of the class, always somewhere between 5th and 15th place among 45 or so students. The teachers would always complain on their comments that I’m "floating in the air", not able to settle down and just do things step by step. It really is hard for me to do that, and probably one of the biggest reasons why I don’t think I can be good at long drawn research.

On the other hand, things always have to come in pairs. I’m also a very stubborn and determinant person, so my ways of working things out are usually fairly multifaceted and sometimes intese, but rarely conssitent. It’s really driving myself mad once in awhile, because there are things in this world you just need patience to do!

In any case, these things do improve as I grow older, as I am much better now than I used to be. Nevertheless, I can feel it in my bones.
