You will have many successes in the future. Everybody starts out bad.

I hope that is true. But my friends seemed not to have started out with a dozen rejections... they seemed pretty successful from the outset. Perhaps I ought to learn from them.

They might fit in better than you do. I had the same experience.

Yes, I'm not sure if I fit in as well as the others, I am not a total outcast though. I just get the feeling I'm not really being considered by any girls, and in my current school I almost accept that because it has always been that way.

Perhaps you will do better a little later when you will be dealing with adults.

They are not, or at least they are not acting like adults.

That might be true, I do not know. If you have to, then you will do so.

It might be, given that I don't really like anyone at the moment.

Then you can hold out as long as it takes.

If you are wondering then maybe you should have went to it.

I mean, I am curious how much vomit there was, how many fights, broken needles and teenage pregnancies there were. There were also supposedly topless girls. I will never go.

How many people does she throw parties for?

Maybe that's what she went to. It is impossible to know for sure without talking to her.

That is the state of education over here.

She probably passed out somewhere.

Bunking is sort of bad at my school too, only a third turn up for registration. Heck, I don't even turn up most of the time, because every time I do go I always think that I should not have gone.

Hmm, that is possible.

I don't think so, but I will have to ask her if we ever talk again.

Okay, see you later.

Also, is there any chance if you could determine if this is correct:

and if so, how good the convergence is? I went up to 10 terms and I got a 6.6% percentage error, which isn't enough to convince me that it converges...

**zetafunc.****Guest**

Never mind, don't bother. It doesn't converge at all and my general series is terrible.

**zetafunc.****Guest**

I read that the Fourier series of a function f(x) converges wherever it is differentiable. Is this true?
