Maths! D:

I had a Maths and English assessment to day for a possible job interview ( its a bit crazy ) anyway, English one first, I'm like zoom! Super quick.

Until I hit the Maths one, I wonder if people can get a phobia of Maths, because I was terrified ( yes even shaking ) and the questions were simple, like, how many coins do you have here, how much do you need to make 20. ( they did get harder )

But fuck, I am the WORST person ever, if anyone asks me anything maths related, I usually just refuse and pass it to someone else, so I hate being pressured into it.

I need to practice.

Thing is, I can ( well could, probably not now! ) do Algebra, Trig, Pythagoras, but if you give me the SIMPLE SUMS inside those equations BY THEMSELVES I cannot do it, put it in an Algebra sum, and I can.

Fucking idiot.

Hmph.

Also I've started exercising again, I used to think that the exercises I did was easy, but I redid them and I nearly died. Damn I should quit giving up.

I've always been excellent at English, and while I'm not terrible at math I really start to slip once you get to Calculus.

It seems that those who are good at English are bad at Math, and vice-versa.

yeah, I'm pretty average at English, okay at art but maths, I'm laughably bad at.

"Average" only at English...? Babe, you ARE English!
Now make us proud with an A+ since you represent the Union Jack and all that.

What position was the interview for, and did it legitimately require your Math(s) skills to be tested?

ah...You literally caught me "last minute" on here; it's 3:05am (in Chicago) and I got school at noon (community college computer coarses [hey, that's a lot of alliteration, haha]). Anyway...

Yeah, bartending's a tough job - especially being an attractive young lady around a bunch of drunken men! I hope you know martial arts or have pepper-spray handy!

Maths is necessary, unfortunately. The best advice I could give you is to say that the best mathameticians are highly INTUITIVE (initially) -- not analytical, like most folks assume! They have a "feel" for quantities -- they don't just memorize and blindly apply formuals. So basically, they're "conceptual" in their thinking (or should I say "feeling"?).

I wish you luck; let us know how it goes, OK?

haha, and go see that Discrete (computer-applications) Maths I have under my "Scraps" gallery, haha!

Not allowed pepper spray, its the UK, I have however worked as a bar tender before, never had any problems, I'm a bit of a feminist so I wouldn't accept that behaviour, and yes, I did Judo and Ju Jitsu.

Maths is necessary, but not THAT necessary, I can do sums when I'm not under pressure, but generally if they go YOU MUST BE GOOD AT MATHS, I freak out >:
