    Haha!

    What makes this funny for me is that I used to love math and numbers in general so one of my degrees is in Accounting, but I now hate numbers and I never want to ever work for another Accounting firm as long as I live. How is that for irony?

    Math Is My Enemy

    Math has never been my strong suit. I'm much better with words. I like to be creative and words allow me to do that. Math, on the other hand is so formulaic and boring. I just never got into it. I always scraped by in my math classes. I think the highest grade I ever got in...
