2. That is really outstanding of you, and you have my highest respects.

I had a total prick with a napolean complex for Jr High math (algebra). Right winger, of course, and almost scarred me for life. I was going through enough on a personal level that I just said fuck it.

A young college tutor I had explained it best. "If you can add, subtract, multiply, and divide you can do Any math. It's just a matter of remembering the rules and how they apply."
She was a sweetheart who I won't forget. My college profs were outstanding and patient as well.

I managed to get through enough to get my BS.
