Nonetheless, I became motivated to start a blog when I decided to apply for an MSc at Oxford and discovered how scarce information is about higher degrees there. Furthermore, I’d often find myself discussing interesting books, code, or math anecdotes with different friends, and thought this would be a good avenue to reach more people with (hopefully) less effort.
