Ambition this shall tempt to rise,
And moody Madness laughing wild
Amid severest woe.
-from Thomas Gray's "Ode on a Distant Prospect of Eton College"
A little bit of the fog has lifted
I was really not happy about taking remedial math, and I suggested in an earlier post that I already knew the stuff we were learning. After tonight's class, I have to take it back. Simple concepts I thought I understood before? I really didn't. I am so glad I am in remedial math now. The teacher is perfect - she seems to understand that for me, math is a foreign language, so the first thing we are focusing on is learning the vocabulary. I already feel more confident.
