May All Mathmaticians Be Cursed With a Sore Curse!

Alright, so I know I already posted one entry today, but, that one was only for blogging pleasure, it consisted of a topic in which I could poke fun at, this post is mostly for catching you up on the happenings in my life, and the progress I'm making with the new goals I've set.

First of all, let me just tell you something about myself. I believe it would be fair to call myself a fairly creative person. I have lots of talents, skiing, sky skiing, hiking, road biking, scrap booking, sleeping, kissing, eating food, being irresistible to women, you know, lots of talents. I guess it's just my cross to bear.

However, you'll be amazed to know that there is one thing that I am not good at. As I look at that statement, I have to snigger a little to myself. It's somewhat of an understatement. Let me put it this way, your 1st grader is probably better than I am at this particular subject.

I know you must be breathing heavily with anticipation. It's just so hard to believe I have a mental weakness right? Well, I hereby submit I am the worst math student who has ever lived. If I were born in China, they probably would have killed me for being so bad at math, totally disregarding the fact I did indeed have a penis.

That said, let me just tell you. I've been taking a Math 1030 class at this thing called, "Easiest Math Ever". It's for the veritable retards, such as I. Well, don't let the name trick you into thinking that this class was easy. I actually struggled a lot through this class, but I worked my butt off!! I studied literally over 10 - 15 hours a week for this class probably, and I still managed to get D's on 3 of the tests.

Yesterday was different however. Only by a pure miracle from God was I able to get an 82% on my math test yesterday. 82% may not be that great for some of you nerdos who know how to use your alleged brains, but for me, I may as well have gotten an A+ with a gold star and a big slap on the buttocks from coach carter assuring me I had a "good game". I was extremely happy about my score!

Try not to pay attention to the fact that I got a 62% on the final which I took today. That is not important, we're talking about my triumphs, not my failures.

Anyway, just wanted you all to know that I was smart in math for exactly 2 hours and 27 minutes of my life. This means that I will pass the class with a C, which may as well be an A in my book. I was going for a C anyway, so I'm happy.

On a serious note though, I really do feel like God played a huge part in helping me to study effectively for this test. I was literally praying the whole test that I would have a quickened mind, and that I would be able to recall the principles I had spent so much time studying. I was blessed for sure.

I am still going strong on my "no games" commitment. It has been a challenge to constantly stay self aware all the time. It has been a positive challenge, which I have really liked most of the time. But there are always those times where you recognize your weaknesses, and just wish they would all go away NOW instead of later with time and effort. But things are still going really well for me. I feel like every aspect of my life has improved. Heck, I went into work for 1 hour and 4o minutes today, and ended up closing 10 calls. That is daily GOAL for all our techs for an 8 hour work day. What can I say, "All your base are belong to us." That's what! So, things are going really well.

I have a lot to say, but this is quite long, and it's like 2:34 in the morning right now, so I think I'm going to call it a night. Don't forget to enjoy my other blog I wrote earlier about parking lots! You'll love it, I promise!

PS you're right about what the chinese would have done to you. they would have killed you in front of the entire town, and your parents would be ashamed of the dishonor you brought the family and they'd be forced to love there second born who happens to be a girl. oh great, a girl.

Tanner, I'm so proud of you. YAY! Aren't you so happy you passed that class? Amazing! Do you have to take math 1050 now or are you done? I'm very excited for you my dear. Way to go. I remember being done with 1050 and looking at it as one of my lifes greatest accomplishments. Ode to us dumb math folk. Love you.
