about Iseult

( female / Berkeley, CA )

Poet. Foodie (but not in an obnoxious way). Avid reader. Photographer. Brunette, not that it matters.

I wear glasses, but only because I cannot, for the life of me, get a contact lens back out of my eye once I've put it in, and therefore the eye doctor will not let me get contacts. I really want Lasik eye surgery but am too broke to consider it.

    in school we are not allowed to use calculators. for homework, yeah, but work on class and exams should be done by ourselves. we were allowed extra paper to make the calculations, and we should write down the logics of the calculations on the exams, so if we did something wrong with the numbers we'd still get part of the question right if the thinking behind it was right. for the same reason, i once lost an entire question on a physics exam because i only wrote down the final answer - i thought it was too simple and calculated everything on my head, and didn't explain how i got to that number.
    we can only use calculators at uni, when we get to advanced calculus, physics and chemistry.

  • in what should I read next?, Iseult says:

    I went with the 3rd book of the trilogy very next thing . . . Chill was very good though . . . for anyone who hasn't read Elizabeth Bear before and likes SciFi at all, I recommend starting with her Jenny Casey trilogy, Hammered, Scardown and Worldwired . . . then read Dust & Chill. They aren't related series, but it somehow makes more sense that way.

    By the way, I'm going with Chill . . . I think. Unless I change my mind on the way out the door tomorrow morning.
