    Just Don't Get It

    I honestly think I may have some sort of learning disability when it comes to math. Once I started high school and teachers started teaching Algebra and stuff like that, is when my brain completely shut down. I still to this day do not understand it. I barely squeaked by every...

    I Can Do The Simple Stuff

    But the complex mathematical equations needs to go to a mathematician.I like to read and write, not do numbers.More power for those who do get into the numbers thing.  It's just no me.
