**A man with no plan,but a frieght car full of ideas and a heart of flame and frost. I'm a second year graduate student in pure mathematics at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. I'm so hoping to finish my Master's by Christmas-the end of January the absolute latest-l and begin applying to PHD programs-primarily Columbia, Princeton and NYU. I spent a lot of years (don't ask, I don't want to ruin this first impression with a sob story) keeping my father alive from his prostate cancer after my 3 brothers all ran for thier lives. As a result, took me awhile to find out what I wanted to do with my life.( I don't say what I want to be when I grow up-I have no intention of ever doing that.......LOL) After premed, chemistry, physical chemistry and biochemistry,I was seduced into pure mathematics and never looked back. Mathematicians are sorcerers. But instead of tea leaves, toadstools, phoenix feathers, polyjuice potions and eye of newt, we conjure with Lebesgue measures, noncommutative rings, differentible manifolds, Fourier transforms, deformation algebras and power series. We read the Book of Nature and if we ask it the right questions.
