    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...

    Math Sucks Donkey Balls.

    I'm typically an A student except for math, my worst subject. I've been getting super low grades and have failed numerous times in it since the 5th grade. The problem was I never properly remembered my multiplication tables or division. Every time I tried to learn them, they just...

    I Used To Be Good.

    I used to achieve A's for the subject and genuinely enjoyed it, until an incident in 9th grade changed everything. At that time I was going through a very difficult time. I took an overdose and spent a day in the hospital, missing an important math class. After that incident, I...

    Most Of My Traumatic Experiences

    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?

    Fractions, Decimals, Percents! Oh My!

     I've always hated math. I am also horrible at it! I don't understand any of it! I still don't really know how to do anything that has to do with algebra (which I'm sure not many of us can do) and anything that has to do with fractions, decimals, or percents!

    No Thank You!

    I was always one of those students who, while on one particular mathematical lesson, I could master it and do it pretty well. However, once we moved onto the next one it just slipped right out of my head! I never did like math anyway. I always tried really hard though! Still yet...
