    Today, 2/24/15. I took a math test.

    I'll be staring at the board

    while the teacher yaps away about some equation. Then I ask one question, and it seems like I'm the only one not understanding. That look the teacher gives me like I said I'm a magical chipmunk. Then all the stares from the students. Makes me wonder why I even try, when I know I...

    I had a horrible teacher

    that was mean to everybody. Even the really nice kids. But one embarrassing day, she yelled at me for not understanding. It's her own fault for not teaching me right.

    I always say I became an artist

    so I wouldn't have to do math....that didn't quite work out. I do tons of geometry and algebra. I still cannot do simple math in my head. My brain just isn't wired that way.

    In third grade I was diagnosed with dyscalculia.

    I was put in to the special education class but I never got any help. Now I'm older, and throughout most of my time in high school I've had no support and it's made a big impact on my life. I'm in the lowest set for maths at school and I never get above an E. I need to get a C...

    I honestly feel like it's impossible

    for me to understand math, but this year I'm going to focus. I'm going to be so lowkey at school, I'm not even going to be hanging out with friends in class... I hope this school year will be good. 😊
