I've lurked for a while here, but never felt the urge to comment much. Always time to make a change I guess!

Anyways, not much is new in my life at the moment. I think I'm finally sure about my major which is nice. Unfortunately, I'm realizing that my area of interest is likely going to consume the better part of my twenties (CS/Math and social life don't belong in the same sentence).

The upside is I'm realizing how much I love going to school. It seems everyday I talk to my friends and they hate their classes, hate doing their assignments, hate having to study, etc. But for me, it never feels like that.

I hate how fake it sounds, but I honestly feel humbled that I get to go a great school and learn from some really amazing people. I love opening my textbooks and losing myself in some really complex concept, only to come out feeling like I'm finally one step closer to truly understanding. Even when I come out more confused than before I started (which is often with math), it only makes me want to know more! I'm incredibly lucky I suppose, because it seems many people feel the exact opposite.
