One more thought about the below. I did fail that class, but eventually I learned to pass math classes by great effort. Essentially, because I have a very good to great memory, I learned to memorize a huge number of problems so I could kind-of almost see some relation to a problem and a vague… Read More »
Here’s how terrible I am at math. Once, in high school, I got a 6 out of 100 on a math test. Yeah, a 6. I’ll never forget that as the teacher told me it’s the lowest grade she’d ever seen for a student who appeared to be trying their hardest and actually attempting to… Read More »

I have not read the Harry Potter books, but I just realized that Luna Lovegood from the films is my favorite cinematic character of all time.
If any of ya’ll see me half-naked on the internet, my apologies. There was a literal peephole in the dressing room of the clothing store I went to the other day. I would’ve taken a photo of it, but I didn’t have my smartphone with me. (Unlike most, I don’t carry it everywhere.) It was… Read More »
