Double Majoring

19:10

The Mathematical Sciences Department held an "informal gathering" today. I wasn't going to go, because it was held during the time of my Microcomputer Interfacing lab. However, the three seniors were going to leave ~3 and go to it, so I decided that I would also go. Besides, I am doing well in the lab, and one guy couldn't do anything today because the software on his computer had to be upgraded.
Once there, I met a nice girl who, incidently, is in my Computer Science course. After being recognised as one of the other three double majors in Math and Physics, it'll be hard for me to really be part of the math majors community.
One of my former professors said that I could be his research assistant in the summer and fall. However, I will not be able to take the position if I will be in England in the fall. Maybe he'll be able to hire me for only the summer... He's also asked me to come to his second annual Regional Undergraduate Mathematics Conference. I'll need to find a topic. He suggested, possibly, working with a former Physics professor of mine on one of his research goals. It would be great if I could come up with a topic to give a little discussion on.
I've now had the misfortune to separate myself from the other Physics majors. It seems that by working hard and learning LabVIEW, and working on it outside of class, that I put myself closer to finishing our first project than everyone else. Today a couple guys were asking me how to do this and how to do that. Also, I do not like the "textbook" that came with the Student Edition, because it does a poor job explaining how to do tasks I wish to accomplish and the index has been poorly drawn. I haven't learned a thing by trying to read any part of that book.
