I may have to, yes. There probably will not be much social time to balance, though.

It only takes one to monopolize lots of your time.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.

True. I wonder how this one will be. I was surprised that she did the approaching. (Well, not exactly an 'approach' -- we just had a conversation.)

Did she not sit down next to you? Then she did the initial approaching.

Yes, it was strange. She chose to sit next to me, rather than someone else. Says she knows adriana and Hannah well but hasn't heard of me before.

I would say that is a good sign. What did you think of her?

### Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

She's very nice, polite, a good talker. She wanted to keep the conversation going. Very neat and tidy sort of person. Quite good-looking and outgoing, too. Seems like she initiated almost everything, although I had to ask for her number.

It is a bit strange that she'd want to sit next to a guy, though. Having gone to an all-girls school for 7 years, you would think she would be very shy around them but she didn't appear that way at all.

I tend to think that shyness is built in, part of the makeup of a person. What her environment was like did not matter.

Hmm. What adriana told me was that the girls there are frustrated and desperate because there are no guys around, anywhere.

That is not apt to make them shy...

The experience you are talking about comes built in for them.

This girl was not nervous or hesitant. had you not asked she would have written it down and given it to you.

Remember we talked about their lack of patience? Their lack of understanding for hesitation? If you appeared that way then you are already dead.

Being called away see you tomorrow and hopefully you will have even better news.

Hmm. It's hard to tell, we sat next to each other for over 2 hours and had casual chat over the breaks. I at least got her number, hopefully that is a good thing.

Okay, see you later.
