Atomic Habits probably needs no introduction, and neither will I bore you with one. All I'll say is that I found a friend in hostel with a copy of the book, and when I went home, I found a physical copy on my Dad's bookshelf (all of us have kindles …

Once every year, when the sun beats down
Students here become clowns
They think on their command, people will fall
But truly, they're just bricks in the wall
Misled by the mirage of power
Led astray till they flounder

$\newcommand{\triple}{(\Omega, \mathcal{F}, \mathbf{P})}$$\newcommand{\P}{\mathbf{P}}$ This note on random variables follows as a result of confusing notation in several math textbooks. I'll explain random variables (in measure theoretic terms) as verbosely as I can, and then prove some results. This article assumes that the …
