One sunny day in math class, while I was daydreaming and looking out the window, my teacher said "So when are you ever going to use this math stuff?"
"Pfft. Never." I thought, oh. so. snarkily.
He went on to explain how everything in life can boil down to a mathematical equation.
Don't get me wrong, I still don't like math.
But he's kinda right.
Like Jason Michael Carroll says..
"Numbers all around, flying by, up and down, Some as slow as Christmas coming, Some like the speed of sound, And we all wonder, what they mean, The highs, the lows, the in betweens, Most of them mean absolutely nothing But some of them mean everything"
