At the moment, I am no longer a student. I do have a MS (2014) in Mechanical Engineering (Control Systems), a BS (2011) in Mathematics, and a BS (2011) in Finance. I am interested in PDEs, ODEs, Complex Analysis, Control Theory, Probability, Kalman Filtering, and Compressed Sensing.

I am waiting to hear back from some universities about my application for a PhD in EE, or if I can find a job that pays well, I might decide to that instead.

Currently, I am reading a Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. In Mathematics, I am reading Complex Analysis by Ahlfors and refreshing myself with Abstract Algebra and Real Analysis by re-reading Dummit and Foote and Rudin, respectively. Afterwords, I will probably read Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut, a different Complex Analysis book, and a book on Measure Theory.

I just added a maintainer after size around line 2887 and I think that worked. I can report back in a few days if it truly worked.

comment emacs copy and paste
I don't want to replace the existing alias. Is there a ways to have $emacs open in the terminal, with emacsclient -t --alternate-editor= then?

comment emacs copy and paste
this may be a long shot but is there a way to setup an alias for emacs ~/path/to/file so it is recognized as emacsclient - t? Maybe something like alias emacs='emacsclient -t' but then that would override my alias emacs='emacs -nw'

comment text color settings in emacs
I have seen that page but don't understand it. It tells me to put color-theme.el in the folder "themes" and other instructions. First, I have no idea where the folder themes is. If I have been using emacs for more than 2 hours that site may be helpful, but at the present, it offers nothing.
