Even writing this abstract is difficult. In the past we have aimed our post math talk conversation to the first year graduate students who were facing the challenges inherent to a PhD program in Mathematics. This time we would like to open the conversation to all graduate students. We would like to address the question of how to move forward during the pandemic while surrounded by uncertainty. We are not experts, we are just older and life has had a chance to teach us a couple of tricks. We still believe that mathematics and your education are important for the years to come. Let's work together to thrive in these challenging times.
Note, this talk will follow our talks in the Current Topic Seminar. We will each give mini-research talks and then move to the topic above around 5:00pm.
