So I cleared my schedule for Math. This way I don't have any other focus on Tuesdays and Thursdays. So I can get my homework done faster, or see a tutor, or join a study group, or go home and cry.
But, thank the Lord for small favors, there IS something to look forward to when it comes to this class.
Shall I explain? Very well.
I have Business Math at 11:10, which is nice. It means I don't have to get up at 7 EVERY day, although for the sake of keeping a routine I might try to. Anyway, this is also a big class. Which is good in some ways, bad in others. Good in that I know out of all of us, surely I'm not the only person who isn't good at math. Bad in that it's more intimidating to ask questions or speak up, and it could potentially be harder to include myself in on study groups because really, for me at least, it's usually harder to meet people in larger classes. I mean, they just have so many other choices of people to talk to. So we'll see.
And okay, yeah, I started off intimidated by this class, just because of the subject. I don't know how to stress just how NOT good at math I am. I'm sure you get the idea.
Our professor comes in, an unassuming looking man, tall and thin and very normal looking. At least I don't have an intimidating subject AND an intimidating teacher, right?
But then comes the small favor.
He starts talking.
So, I may struggle with the concepts, and I may get a headache from the lessons, but at least I'll enjoy listening to the lectures!
And trust me, I really will get a headache from the lectures. We dove straight into notes today. He started covering stuff that "you should already be familiar with." Yeah, I'm not familiar with it. I vaguely recall learning it in high school, but that was pre-2005. So it's been awhile. And I didn't do great at it then. He covered a whole heck of a lot today, and if that's just supposed to be review, it's a pretty sure thing that I'll be working my tail off to keep up with this guy.
Oh well. By December, for better or worse, it will be over. And then I can call myself officially done with math forever, at least as far as my college career is concerned. Oh, happy day!
Until then, I'll just have to be prepared to...suffer through it.
Cross your fingers for me.
I'm going to need it.
