A year or so ago one of my algebra professors had us purchase an online access code for a math program, but he only ever assigned us work out of the text. And now that I’m taking Trigonometry I can either choose to waste hundreds of dollars on a textbook or about $80 on an access code that includes an ebook of the text. Except I remembered I had that extra one and now my class is FREE!!!! AHEHEHEHEEHEHE. You don’t know how happy this makes me. I’ve never loved math, but now that I don’t have to waste over $200 just to learn it I could dance with joy~!
I’ve done nothing but complain about my college algebra class, this is true… But Matrices… I simply love you! Something I can grasp easily and understand. Algebra, I mostly hate you. But when I can do you - that is when I love you. ;) Geeky puns and innuendos. No, I’m not a math head.. yet. But I wouldn’t mind being one. Math nerds, I envy you.
I have the absolute worst professor ever for college algebra.. she is probably going to be fired after this semester. I am trying so hard to understand how to do this homework that she didn’t even explain to us how to do, but I am so frustrated because I’m basically failing this class. :( I can’t afford to fail. Not to mention the class alone cost me over $220. I’ve had to teach myself out of the book to get this far. -_________- I need a miracle, hahaha.
Today was a beautiful, strange surprise.. I made a new friend. It was very weird - I was just sitting at a table under a tree while waiting for my yoga class to begin and he came up to me. Maybe it is not really so strange, but being a reserved person for most of my life, I wouldn’t just go up to someone I didn’t know like that. He just asked me if I would be his new friend. Hahaha I laughed at him at first because of what an awkward thing that is to say, but I left feeling like something had fallen out of the sky and onto my head as if life was prodding me to snap out of it and wake up. I was wondering if perhaps he was special, but I think he was just a very different character than those I am used to spending time with. I don’t know many people who are so soft spoken that I have to really make an effort to listen to. He didn’t talk much, just smiled, picked off a fallen leaf from my sweater and patted me on the back.
I usually keep to myself and avoid contact with people I don’t know, but today I felt like life was trying to show me that it’s okay to be open to new people. It’s okay to share a friendly smile with a stranger and nothing more. Sometimes people just need the silent company of another. Life will always surprise you in peculiar ways.
I got my hair cut! :) I’m so boring, I get the same one every time. I like it, though. I also got Blueberry Crisp and Crunchy Peanutbutter Clif Bars. (: Now I just have to complete my math midterm paper. I have to come up with three algebraic concepts we’ve learned in college algebra and give an example of using them in real life situations. So far I have one used for gardening and plotting dimensions. I wanted to include something you could use while rock climbing or doing yoga. Any thoughts/ideas?
