It's my birthday and I'll whine if I want to!

I was in my new school the whole day yesterday, prepping for my first nursing-doomed schoolyear when I was informed that my MATH needs major improvement. Hahahaha, laughable stuff! I wasn't even shocked. Like I've always been aware that I severely suck at it. Not that I didn't seek help, nor never attempted working on it, it's just that... Math and I are like Paris Hilton and Linday Lohan. We'll get along one day, and catfight the next. It's just never gonna work! But no matter how limited my knowledge about it is, I know I'm still capable of adding, subtracting, multiplying and even dividing whole numbers. Hahaha, seriously, I can do that. Hence my hysteria over dissatisfying scores! MATH = not college ready. Are you kidding me? I may be mathematically challenged, but my brains aren't sophomoric. I got a good score in reading and very high praises for my writing skills! I know Math is totally different, but not college ready?? Not college ready?? This is ridiculous!


But what can I do... It's not like I could bitchfight my way out of it. I have to pass Elementary Algebra, (I repeat, ELEMENTARY!) to get 3 units (Nursing prefuckinrequisite) of Algebra II or College Algebra. Man, can you imagine my numeral-loathing head revolving around these demanding subjects?? Don't even be surprised if you just heard one day, I hanged myself in the attic because of it. Like seriously. What was I even thinking when I've decided to be a nurse and ditch my dreams of becoming the next Paula Dean? What were YOU thinking?!!

But it was my birthday and I wouldn't let anything as embarrassing as this ruin my very day. Since there weren't plans of partying, I just asked my dad to drop by Walmart so we could get the usuals: orange chicken, strips with country gravy, mac and cheese and a humongous pizza for the day. Hahaha, celebrating my failure. Why not? But guess what. I'll try it just one last time. Who knows, I'll be Cady-mathlete one day. Haha, birthday girl can dream!

Before I forget... thanks to the blogger beauties who remembered to blow me kisses yesterday. Ate Clare, Jen, Bone and Jennie. And my CUZ, Hannah. You have no idea how you made my almost suicidal day. :)

I don't think there could be anyone worse than me when it comes to Math - but maybe, kaya siguro tayo nagkakasundo.

Anyways, Happy Birthday po!!!

happy belated birthday!

oh, count me in. math has never been one of my strongest subjects (except that one year when we had to learn geometry in HS. haha) i'm just grateful that i passed college algebra with a C back home, so i don't need to take it over. *whew*

wait...i thought you were gonna be a PharmaTech. so change of plans, huh? but don't you worry, i'm sure you'll be fine.

btw, have you heard of ratemyprofessor.com? check it out to find out which professors to take =)

Belated Happy Birthday Kai!

You are not alone with this disdain for Math. I guess thats why I took up Psychology the only math I had to deal with was Stat and it was open book for most of the time LOL

Kai said...

EVERYONE
Thank you so much for the birthday greetings, and for sharing my inabilities with mathematics. You have no idea how happy I am to know I'm not the only one. Not that I rejoice over your respective troubles with the subject matter, but... ugh, you know what I mean. Haha, thanks again. Appreciate it! :)
