    I already loved math when I saw it, but it was very cool. It's a film I remember seeing in school.

    Once upon a time, I was a math major in college. But going above calculus threw me for a loop; I remember trying to learn linear algebra or some such, and thinking that I'd slept through a year somewhere because there seemed to be no logical connection to anything I'd done before. I guess it was the same thing that happens to so many wannabe pre-meds when they stumble upon organic chemistry.

    I eventually ended up with my degree in American studies, and today I write for a living. Writing was another love of mine in school. But I still love fidgeting with digits, though. Just don't ask me about vector spaces!
