    Oh, okay. Just checking. ;) It’s not something I could do, I just don’t have the patience for math at all, so I’m impressed.

    there is something oddly impressive about a degree in math. at least, i always seem to get interesting reactions from people when they find out it was my major. (i hope it’s not just because i come across very ditzy most of the time and can barely add in my head.)

    but anyway, a master’s in math sounds even more impressive. so i’m guessing you can add in your head. congrats.
