spaghetti is tasty
Would anyone care to share their fail-safes?

I agree, but how do you do that? Who do you conduct research with?

My plan B is to try to get a job, do some private tutoring, and spend more time on some non-math interests. Plan B is a realistic option, but I want to take it only after I'm sure that I've exhausted all my resources to continue studying Math.

I feel ya. I spent a lot of time exploring my non-math side this year, which I think has actually made me a stronger math student and overall person. Perspective can be very valuable. Good luck with your choices.

Atiyah's Commutative Algebra
Shafarevich Algebraic Geometry
Gerald J. Janusz : Algebraic Number Fields
Anyone wants to do that ?

Sounds like a cool idea. I have a fantasy of creating a math consortium of rogues and rejects if things don't work out. I'll take you up on the Algebraic Geometry book. How does it work? do you get a chat room and then meet periodically to work through problems?
