Meandering thoughts of a Bay Area college student… be prepared for some bipolar vocabulary


Just as I was ranting on how great math was, I get my butt handed back to me with some easy calculus problems my friend asked me to help him with.

Despite my level in math, I really can’t do mental math. I have to write something down on paper or conceptualize the problem in order to do it. The whole time, I had three other people trying to help said friend while shouting out possible ways to do the problem and I totally lost my train of thought.

As a result, I messed up on the most trivial techniques and embarrassed myself in front of everybody because I’m supposed to be some kind of a “math genius”. I guess I need to work on my mental math and improve my concentration.
