Math like whoa.

You guys, you guys, you guuuuuuys. Today I start Intermediate Algebra. In about 30 minutes, in fact.  I have absolutely put this class off as long as I could. I've taken every other GE class I could ever possibly need over the years, and a ton of classes that were completely unnecessary -and totally awesome- like horsemanship, drawing, and intro to dance (that last one is kind of comical if you know me. I basically dance like Elaine from Seinfeld.) 

                           


The thing is, I took beginning algebra 20 years ago. 20 years!! There's a really strong chance I end up with classmates who were born after I took that course (insert the silent scream/horrified face emoji here.)  It was a miserably terrifying, gray hair and wrinkles-inducing experience, clearly. Or it probably wouldn't have taken me two full decades to woman up and get back in the math-saddle.

                             


The sad thing is that I totally realize that I'm not being asked to complete advanced calculus or some kind of crazy mathematical physics. Algebra is basically "dummy" math, right? It's just that I'm not a math person. I'm a words person: reading them, writing them, whatever. Words are my happy place. And in my defense I would just like to note that I have, in fact, made it successfully through 38 years of life without ever, ever needing fancy math for anything. And if I do happen to need fancy math someday? Pretty sure there's an app for that.
                         
                            

Unfortunately, this is the very last class standing between me and an Associate's Degree, and although I don't really need the degree -it's not relevant to my current job or anything- I finally decided that whether or not my nursing school application is accepted this fall, it would be stupid to let 4 evil little units keep me from accomplishing a goal. And it's not all bad, right? As a mostly SAHM any extra adult interaction I can work into my week is a plus. So here I go! Wish me luck!
