I feel much better today. But, since it's the end of the semester, not much has happened here. Although, with the amount of work I have to do, a lot should be happening. So, since I don't want the rest of you to be bored until something exciting happens in my life (utter sarcasm), here's my second pre-lim list. This is my shortest list and the list I like the least, but the list will get shorter. I've read more than the highlighted ones, but I didn't take very good notes, so I'm reading them again (I'm a masochist). Enjoy and I'll give you a quiz on Friday.
