Are You Afraid of Math?
Not afraid of but….yeah I am freaking afraid of it. Doing complex math equations will scare the living crap outta me. Forget complex, even simpler ones freak me out. I also take my time in doing multiplications and whenever possible I will use the calculator or an excel sheet if I have a computer in front of me. I am not fond of math, have never been fond of math and I do not see math & I in love with each other in the foreseeable future.
As a kid I never spent too much time doing math problems at home unless it was part of my homework. I never did them for fun or spent any extra time on them at all, wanting to be way from them as much as possible. For studies I used to read math problem instead of doing them in a book at a desk or a table and that’s probably why I did so poorly at math. But I hated it a lot and hence my lethargy at doing math problems.
