Zero dollar day. I ate beans and tortillas instead of ordering take-out. Could have gotten free chili on campus at a faculty event, but I’m still not eating inside in public. Soon.
Had a student last semester in real analysis that’s now my grader for calc 2. She came by today with some questions about how she should be grading, and we talked for a bit. She told me how excited she gets to prove things now in her other advanced classes, how much more sure she is of her proofs, and how much more beautiful they are after taking my class.
This job is occasionally incredibly rewarding. I told the crows about it on my walk home.
