There’s no time for romance, we have shit to Avenge.
Have been learning math all day
When I was a wee bebe in elementary school in fourth grade, I traveled to the U.S. in the middle of the school year. Consequently, I left exactly when fractions were beginning to be taught. In the U.S., the school placed me in third grade because, according to the administrators, I was too young. So for a few months, I was bored outta my mind because I was forced to study things I already knew. Three months later, I return to the Dominican Republic, back to fourth grade, and where my class had already moved on from fractions to other topics. For the next few years in D.R., I squeak by in my math classes. When it’s time for middle school, I move back to the U.S., where shockingly, the use of calculators are actually encouraged. In retrospect, I think allowing students to use calculators is a great disservice to students, but back then, I was glad because I didn’t need to worry about fractions… Yay, according to my teenaged self. I went on to learn algebra and geometry, but now that I have to take a math placement test for my college degree, suddenly fractions haunt me with a vengeance! T__T the way the placement test works is that you start with simple problems and work your way up to more complicated ones. If you can’t solve the easy problems, you can’t move on to harder ones. The test ends and decides that you need remedial classes.
So today, I’ve been learning in a day what takes weeks (or months depending on who you ask) for kids to learn.
I find algebra way easier than fractions, but how could I get to algebra in the test if I can’t move past fractions? FML, fractions are retarded. So many rules, so many steps, and so many different ways to do the same thing. Even the “tricks” are complicated, wtf. Fortunately I’ve learned them today… But, fuck, it’s a miracle I can think straight. I need a drink!

I would date Two-Face in a heart beat… at least the punk side of him. He can get a goodie-goodie for the other arm!!!
Oh my god I love these pics…
Cutest fucking alien in existence
You sure about that
Damn the Disney fandom just reclaimed its post
And belted the crap out of the Whovians
Four for you, Stitch fandom.
And none for Matt Smith. Bye.
