Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Julia. Math has always been a big stress in my life. At times it has made me want to jump off tall buildings (as well as toss my teachers over them).

I remember plenty o' nights where I sat pulling my hair out and screaming for math to just

GO AWAY!!!!!!

These pictures are the closest that I could find to portraying the way I felt during those late weeknights.

I remember feeling as though I was stuck between a rock and a big hairy monster. All I wanted to do was fall fast asleep but I just couldn't. No matter how dreadful it was, I couldn't give up. I had to keep plugging away...

 

 

 

AHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Oftentimes my Dad would help me. However, no matter how hard we each tried to remain calm and collected, the dragon still prevailed. I'd run off to the corner of my room and cry a lot. It was horrible! I used to stay up 'till the wee hours of the morning just trying to get my work done.

 

 

It wasn't until your class Dani, that I finally caught a new glimpse of math in our world.
