Thing 82 Complete!

82. Solve twenty-five of the problems on Project Euler. (25/25) - done! 4/3/2009

Very pleased with this, feels good to get something else accomplished. So many of my goals are things that I have to chip away at - read 101 books, write 101 pieces of flash fiction - it feels good to have done this and for it to be done. It doesn't mean that I won't be doing any more of the problems, but I can put them to one side for the moment while I concentrate on other things.

The thing that has come out of working on this and on Thing 62 is that it has made me realise just how much I miss doing maths as part of my regular routine, as part of my life. I've been enjoying what I've been doing in terms of work recently, but lately it's come to me just how important maths was - and is - to me. So I need to start thinking long term about how I can make it part of my day-to-day life again, or how I can work that into my long term career goals.

But that's a thought for another day! Thing 82 - done!

Have you though applying somewhere as a visiting instructor? Or perhaps try to get a post-doc somewhere?
