    If it weren't for proofs, I probably wouldn't be failing math class right now.

    Most Of My Traumatic Experiences

    in life can be directly attributed to problems with math.  Tutors used to hit me and curse at me, teachers berated me for being "lazy" and my engineer father was deeply disappointed that I wouldn't be following in his footsteps. One tutor told my parents I would never...

    This Is How Horrible I Am!

    English was my best subject in high school. Naturally, I've decided to pursue this at University and become a writer. What I will not be pursuing, is Math. I started failing Math from about 10th grade. By the time I graduated high school, I had the lowest score in my entire year...

    It isn't really that I'm "bad" at it,

    but I am really slow at it. I took some state testing and I was in the room 30+mins longer than anyone else. I felt like an idiot. When I finally finished, I swore I was going to get the worst scores of the entire class. It turns out that mine was the best score. I think the...

    However, I majored in biology

    and minored in chemistry, which involves a good bit of math. All it takes is dedication!

    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!

    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...

    Math Sucks Donkey Balls.

    Math was easy for me IF I had an excellent
