Are You Afraid Of Math?

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.

How Do You Use Facebook?

I use it a lot like most people do. I share some thoughts and comments. I share news articles and I often share funny pics that other people, groups or pages post. I share some funny clips and trailers of upcoming movies that I think would be awesome and ofcourse I share my favourite music videos.

Some people only add their close friends in real life, cousins, uncles, aunts and other relatives who they are close to as their Facebook friends. This is a close section of people and means secrecy is involved. There are usually few surprises and arguments because these people know you well and they expect or share several of these ideas and views of yours. I on the other hand, like a lot of people on my Facebook friends list, add a lot of people I have never met in real life before but have met and become friendly on other Facebook groups, blogs, Twitter etc. The problem here for some of us is that these people will only share one of our interests/views but do not have the same interests or views in several other things.

It depends, sometimes you make a lot of good friends that way and they remain friends for a long time while others end up pissing you off or unfriending you because of things you disagree on and say nasty things about you when they get upset.
