I Love Math

My 3rd year high school Math teacher forced me to join our school's Math Olympics for two reasons:

1. I detest Math and/because I'm bad at it.
2. And he knows it.

Right after the competition, when I went up the stage, the faculty head who pinned the gold medal on me uttered, "Congratulations, future Engineer!"

Found this little devil while cleaning earlier. 
I gave a wide grin like I really am going to be a future Engineer and replied, "Thank you". Well, after the competition and all the pressure I had to go through, I concluded that Math is evil and I'm never going to be an engineer.

But I'm not going to talk to you about my glorious days in high school because I only had one - and this was it (I was better with the extra-curricular activities). But what I'm trying to say is (even though I'm also subtly bragging para ingnon brayt), I can put my heart and soul into something and pretend to be really good at it. For a moment there, everybody thought I was really into Math.

But I'll never be into Math. I'll never be good at Math. But I love counting my money.


  1. Hello Sarah! I just want you to know that I always read your posts, sensible or not. I may not comment all the time but I read all of them because it's very refreshing and quite entertaining too.

    I made this comment because I am also a plastic-free advocate. I am glad you made the switch. Thank you so much for this.

    1. Hello, Alana! Thank you so much for always sticking around. I'm glad to hear from you, and much more knowing that you are a plastic-free advocate. Yes, I'm really glad I made a switch. Not quite, but getting there.

    2. True! I love reading your blogs! Wala pa naman akong nababasang nonsense na post mo. Mostly talagang random pero nonsense wala at saka nakakatuwa silang lahat basahin.

  2. Remember the time when you are also forced to be a contestant sa teatro? That was on the spot and you are third placer. Not bad for a first time theatre actress. Hahaha. Why are you always good at anything even if you claim to be bad at it?

    By the way, nice advocacy sarj!

    1. Huuuuuui! Haha. Seriously, I'm bad at math. I really have to exert triple effort just to ace unlike others who seem to have it in them. Sa acting, I haven't really seen myself act since phone cams weren't a thing that time, so wala koy ebidensya. Haha. Also, I claim to be bad at singing and I'm really bad at singing. Hahaha.

      Hui! Switch na! Save the earth. Refuse single-use plastic! :)
