I think I made the title sound like a video game, didn’t I? That’s to hide the fact that mathematics is an area I’ve never been good at. I’d do math at school and college, and my teacher would always say that I need to practice a lot. But I never bothered to listen. It wasn’t something I enjoyed.
Granted, not everything in life is enjoyable, and we still have to keep up with them. Not math. I didn’t choose to study science because I was literally terrified of math. My brother would suggest that to be good at computer programming, I had to be good at math and logical reasoning. Guess who didn’t learn computer programming after all!
I did try to learn programming but I have always hit a place where I couldn’t go any further. I didn’t enjoy it. And I figured that it wasn’t a good idea to be mediocre at something. So I never picked up programming.
Back to math, after my high school, I chose business studies as my area of study for intermediate college. It’s mainly because business studies lacked general and higher mathematics. There, I said it. I hated math. I still do. It’s not that there wasn’t math in my intermediate college. There was a whole subject of accounting where I had to do tons of math. But it wasn’t algebra. Algebra made me mad. It would still have made me mad had I let it.
I don’t. That’s why my sanity prevails. 😛
