I continued reading Munkres’s Topology. I decided to skip the first chapter for now, since I am more excited about jumping into the actual topology. I plan to come back to the first chapter as needed. I started reading chapter 2, and thought about the initial definitions.

I tried proving the Heine–Borel theorem for the real line again, which I learned a while back.

I made some edits to the page Understanding definitions.

I discovered John Stillwell’s book Reverse Mathematics and started reading it a little. The book seems pretty interesting but I don’t know if I should continue reading it (it might be tangential to my goals, but it might also strengthen me mathematically or cement my understanding of real analysis).
