Dear Math, You Leave Me More Confused Than A Chameleon In A Bag Of Skittles

I swear I'm not trying to be too dramatic but your problems are well, problematic.

Dear Math, You Leave Me More Confused Than A Chameleon In A Bag Of Skittles


I swear I'm not trying to be too dramatic but your problems are well, problematic.

I like working with letters as a writer, but keep them out of math and I'd feel a lot brighter.

Why must you leave me feeling dumb? How come? You're easy for some, but I was left out of that sum.

Listening to people that think you're easy makes me queasy. How can anyone say you're "easy-breezy?" Am I the only one that thinks you're sleazy?

If I ever figure you out the whole world will hear me shout! But that day ever coming leaves me with doubt.

Why were you created? You leave me aggravated wondering what I miscalculated. Your disappearance from my life would be well celebrated.

When I was little you weren't such a big deal, but as I've gotten older the struggle is real. Would you please reveal how people think you're ideal?

I'll always use a pencil so I can erase all the numbers and letters I misplace. You leave me feeling like a disgrace as I watch the numbers become a jumble in front of my face.

The people in STEM? I don't pity them trying to figure out all your mayhem.

I struggle with math class, just hoping that I'll pass. Alas, you make it harder and only harass.

Every class I take makes my brain ache. Can you give a person a break and be less difficult to undertake?

I hate to complain, but you always leave me in pain. Some days it's so insane I get a migraine.

I'd be lying if I said you never left my crying. I promise I'm trying! I can't help it that the results are horrifying.

When I get homework I can almost feel you smirk. You know you drive me berserk but you don't care since you're a jerk.

You wonder why I've got stress? Just look at this mess! Jumbled letters and numbers to assess — it's no wonder I'm a slow work in progress.

Math, I'm sorry but I can't handle your wrath. Maybe it's better if we each follow a different path.

As any other person on this planet, it sometimes can be hard to find the good in things. However, as I have always tried my hardest to find happiness in any and every moment and just generally always try to find the best in every situation, I have realized that your own happiness is much more important than people often think. Finding the good in any situation can help you to find happiness in some of the simplest and unexpected places.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
