I'm so happy we have the 29th this year, that means one more day to study

One extra day will not make the difference between passing and failing.

64 days left.

Sometimes it's hard to detect sarcasm through text. I may or may not be especially bad at this..

what's up with the partial perfect correlation tidbit on page 117? It feels like since Kreps was one of the author's, Venter had a knife to his throat and had to give an obligatory shout out. If the work was so "pioneering" then why does it reach a dead end after one paragraph? Maybe Venter could've saved us the sales pitch and told Kreps sorry bro

Finishing up Sahasrabuddhe today. I like this paper. Other than applying CY trend to cumulative losses (which is annoying), it's very intuitive and feels like there's not much to memorize. I'm gonna start on Marshall tomorrow... Not looking forward to that.
