How big is the class?

Usually consists of around 200 people, I think... you meet someone new every time you go. It can be hard to spot the people you know, actually.

I think so. I hate the cramped lecture theatres, though.

He didn't -- although I guess he was going to humiliate her further before deciding it would be better to just kick her out.

The math types that do that type of math are grim faced drones. They have no sense of humor and no tolerance. In short, a strutting egoist.

He is pretty grim-faced, although he is a very good lecturer from what others have told me. I like that he gives you the historical details during the lecture, and he gets through a lot of content. But I don't think he needs to humiliate people like that, I mean, just tell people to leave.

I wonder what adriana is up to... haven't heard anything from her in 4 months.

I just checked her Facebook. She is at Warwick now, going to some party it seems. I feel that it is not worth trying to talk to her, though.

I don't know, just to have someone to talk to. I kind of miss what it felt like to hug a woman, which was almost a year ago now.

Nothing you can do about that now. It is over and done with. They say, "nothing gets you over the last one like the next one."

Going to sleep a little now. See you later.

### Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

It sure looks that way...

Katrina is sitting next to this other guy a lot. I am absolutely baffled as to why she sat next to me. She is one of those girls who likes to sit in the front row. I hate sitting in the front row, because I have to look up at the board -- whereas if I'm in the 5th or 6th row, I am still fairly close, but my vision is aligned with the board, making it much easier.
