Pi Day.

Happy Pi Day!

I'm by no means a math head, but I think the idea of celebrating Pi on 3-14 is a clever one. Yay for Pi! :)

In other news...

Several semesters ago (Spring 2004, I think), I had an amazing professor for a Brit Lit course. The class was wonderful, and I received excellent remarks from him on each of my papers. The comments he made were so flattering and meant so much to me, that I've kept each of the papers I wrote for him, including one on Frankenstein for which he urged me to pursue creative writing.

"Keep in touch with him; you might need a recommendation some day!" my father suggested. So, of course, I haven't seen or spoken with the professor since.
Today, walking down the hall on the way to class, I saw a familiar face. I'm terrible with facial recognition, so it took me a second to recall the face I'd admired so much two years ago. "Oh, it's him! He won't remember me," I thought.

"Hi Hilary, how are you?" he smiled.

Woohoo! I'm not sure whether I'm happier that I am apparently memorable, or that I've got another recommendation letter I can count on.

LOL! That's so sweet that he took the time to write out meaningful comments on all of your papers! And so sweet that he remembered you! :) You must've made a great impression in his class.

I remember you. You, my dearest friend, are unforgettable.

I'll even give you a gold star! LOL!
