True. But ultimately I'm just not into her at all. I don't know, maybe I'm just going through a phase where I can't be bothered thinking about women right now...

Yes but the earliest I could see her is in April and it is unlikely I would see her anyway. I meant that, I feel too tired to approach new women, particularly as the last few I have met appeared to have been dead ends.

How do you know what you feel like in April?

### Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I don't, but I have been feeling a bit like this since the summer.

I don't know, maybe the workload at uni has burned me out. I only averaged about 80% in my mid-sessional exams -- they only count for 5% of the year, and 70% overall will get you a first-class degree anyway, but I wanted a higher percentage (85-90%) to increase the chance of getting a PhD placement at UCL.

That is a lot of stress so make sure you get some relaxation. The mind-body can only take so much and they need diversions.

### Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I don't know if it is just me, but I feel like those people who live at home, as opposed to living in halls (like myself), have a slight advantage. Quite often when I am done cooking lunch and dinner for the day, cleaning up and doing general chores, I only have a couple of hours left in the day to do work and sometimes I am left feeling exhausted. You have to worry about food as well as your studies and sometimes it is easy to neglect one of those.

I do not think so. Too much time spent lazing around, getting up late and not using my time very well, particularly during the exam season.

I still think I did less work than the average person on my course -- not a good sign.

Less work than the average person? True, if that average person was Einstein.

### Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I have just been rather lazy, to be honest. I need to improve if I want to stand any chance at getting a decent PhD place at a good uni. I am aware that I could go to many unis for a PhD, but I really like UCL's in particular, because they let you teach your own course for 3-4 years, in addition to having some of the most generous bursaries of all the London unis (which would make paying rent a lot easier in a place like London).

Adriana's birthday is coming up... do you think it is worth ignoring?

You can wish her a happy birthday if you like but do not get too upset if she does not respond to it.

### Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I don't know if I should. She didn't remember my birthday without me telling her about it, and she has not spoken to me in 6 weeks -- if I didn't send her a birthday message, surely she would not care to notice?

You can send it if it makes you feel better but it may not be even acknowledged.

If she responds then you will be in the dangerous position of having to possibly date her.

If she does not respond you will be devastated.

If you do not wish her well you will feel guilty and will wonder forevermore why you did not.

Hmmm.

### Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I don't think dating her is in the realm of possibility anymore (actually, it probably never was). If I didn't wish her a happy birthday I definitely wouldn't regret it.
