Doesn't mean you are bad at math, most people are good at it, thought that this comes from bad previous experiences in learning.

No way. Wow. I always felt this way- Chose an arts degree to avoid the drama of math. Though, I am perfectly capable of doing math if it is explained properly- in which case I really enjoy it. I especially enjoy long division bc after all that busy brain work you get a concrete answer. I did not spend enough time on Tangent/cosign and the other one but I enjoyed working those too.
My landlord's dad is coming to look at the leak in the furnace room. I'm like- should I start cooking supper? Or wait? So I bought chips.
Also, there is a baby centipede in my kitchen sink, don't know what to do with it- don't have the heart to put it outside where it's suddenly dropped to -14
(was +3C today)
Another snowfall warning.
Blu- you're betta is SO pretty!! Nice find!
Fishy- did you figure out a tank? There are people all over kijiji here selling tanks. I think it has a lot to do with out-migration as people leave here for the mainland so I don't know if as many people are slling. Could you make an ad on your kijiji/craigslist?
