HAHAHA. Near's birthday is actually the 24th. I guess this is a good thing; I never mess up the birthdays of people I actually know, but I get the Death Note boys' mixed up all the time. It's like anti-magic! XD

...ty, jenwryn. XD

Under the guilt and facepalm, I secretly love misinforming people all over the internet because they assume I actually know what I'm talking about. Failsauce is the gift that keeps on giving. :D

In other news, sleep deprivation and dim sum collaboratively present... Chapter Fourteen of "Chocolate." It's the one where shit goes down.

I was going to write my personal statement today, and then I didn't. :| Lazy Tierfal is lazy and bound to regret it later. >_> I also need to sign up for the GRE and the English Lit subject test. Surviving the former means remembering how to do math.

At least I've slain some deadlines. I might cop out on trying to finish that Nick and Theo piece by Wednesday; the payoff would be miniscule, and the stress would be tremendous. XD

(Haha, yes, yes... that was me. Write or Die is a strange combination of agony and glee, isn't it? XD)

...of Chocolate? Not the last time I had to keep track of the chapters in four places... XD'

ikr. I thought I was done with this bullshit when I stopped taking math after pre-calc. LAME. :|

Thanks much; I'm gonna need it. ^^;

Math... it's like getting shit-faced except worse, because while being drunk people laugh in a haha, you're funny kind of way; with Math, it's like how can you be so smart but then so idiotic not to know this basic principle? Uhm... because it's math, people.

And sadly, I have taken so much math in college in my lifetime, with three more classes I could have a degree in math. Omigod! Seriously. My life's just wrong sometimes.

Math just fries my brain in the worst way. Every question is a trick question, I swear! XD

Wow! :o I... stopped taking math after my junior year of high school, because I knew I'd never need it again. Er, until now. XD

You cannot not take Math if you're a psych major or a Business Marketing major or Communications major or even an Education major. I suppose if I had remained a Classical Literature Major, potentially I could have avoided the increasing Mathematical bent to my class roster. Why yes, I have two degrees and am a short cry from two or three others, but does that matter? Apparently, only if you're trying to avoid Math.

Truly, once you can overcome your fear of Math, it's not that bad except for its tendency to just slide out of the brain once you've passed the test covering that material.

Yipes! Apparently I picked a good major, then. XD Though I did end up doing a lot more math than I would have liked for the astronomy class I took to fulfill a physical sciences breadth requirement. XD I once called eltea at one in the morning the night before my homework was due, stuck and distraught. XD

Math is awfully useful to have a pretty good bearing of, I'll admit. The fact that it boggles my mind is a different problem, I guess? XD

Math scares me. *hides in corner*

*comes out to say hi to new friend real quick*

*hides again*

Many times, I really believe society has taught girls to fear math. So if you think of it as a feminist manifesto... you must excel at math to show the masses that women can be logical :P

Uhm... *geeky friend waves hello* and hopes she didn't scare you more.
marissaabitofadork7 on August 16th, 2009 11:00 pm (UTC)
I just suck at math, that's all. I really, really don't like it. I'll try to look at it that way, but we'll see.

Just for the record, you didn't scare me. Math scares me. I'm pretty sure there's a big difference between you two. :-)

Well, most of the schools I'm looking at also ask for the Subject Test in English Lit. (Yay, more test, /*dies*) And they seem to put a lot more emphasis on your score in the English section of the regular GRE than on the other parts; it's more of a standardization of "Did you deserve to get out of undergrad?", I guess...?

I just think they should stop demanding more of me altogether, but that's not going to happen anytime soon, sigh. XD

Useless, yet made of win.

I love deadlines. I like the whoosh they make when they fly by. XD

Hooray! 8D

That's generally my policy, except that if the current ones whoosh by, my entire future is fucked. So that's a little lame. XD

...yeah, that does sound a bit lame. XD
