Math is Hard

I had a friend with a great sense of humor, sometimes wickedly so.  One of his more oft used phrases, said in a comedic ‘idiot’ type of voice was, “Math is Hard”.  This could mean that someone was claiming they hadn’t done a project because the most basic parts of it were too difficult for them to put out the effort or it had made them significantly late in getting it done. …

Have to, Need to, Get to

Something I figured out about myself a while ago is the categories I put things into in my head when I’m thinking about everything that could/should/would happen in that day.  Being a Capricorn I’m a list maker and so either the night before or in the morning I’m making to-do list. …

Just Say No to Perfectionism

We don’t usually judge our friends or acquaintances or peers because they need help with something or don’t know something or aren’t perfect at doing something.  At least not the first hundred times.  🙂  After 100 we tend to get judgmental but I think it might be warranted in some cases. …
