I'm spending some time on the west coast right now, at a summer school for women in math.
The campus I'm staying at is beautiful, the residence I'm in is fabulous, the math I'm learning is incredible, and the people I'm meeting are remarkable.
This is the campus that I'd like to transfer to next year, and ideally do my masters here as well.
The beach is so beautiful here, and there's a clothing optional beach on campus which I find wonderful. I don't have the body confidence to go swimming nude, but I love how liberating the idea is.
I really like it here. The weather is wonderful. Healthy vegan and vegetarian food is readily available. I haven't been taking much advantage of this wonderful healthy food though - I've been binging an purging most of my time here. I'm trying to put an end to it though. My goal is only one binge and purge session today (which already happened this morning).
We're off to a field trip today, which I'm quite excited about. It's really hard for me to keep going and having all these packed days, without the alone time that I need.
But I'm going to push through, and I'll make the most of this conference.
