I know it’s a *thing* for girls to talk about how much they hate math, and I don’t want to be part of furthering the stereotype that women can’t be mathematicians, but I really, really can’t stand math. I was always a pretty good student, but when it came to math class, I felt doomed no matter what. From the moment I started seventh grade until I graduated high school, math class was my least favorite time of the day.
Easing into a new semester is always tough. While a fresh start is nice, like, in theory, coming back to school almost always just serves as a reminder that you’ve managed to forget literally everything you learned the last time you were in school. It doesn’t matter if you’ve been gone for a month, a week, or even just a weekend–getting yourself back in shape for school will never not be the absolute worst thing in the world.
