This is me to a "T" except I AM bad at math, my brain isn't wired to handle it. My brain seriously shuts down regarding math. Too bad for me that my major requires math! >.< My BF gets annoyed cus he thinks I am making it up or something and so why do I have a degree that involves math?
UHH.. Cus I want to work with animals..
Apparently, animals = math when it comes to careers. My absolute love equals my absolute worse enemy.. lovely........
