I hate math


Dear Math,

                I can remember when I first met you. At first you were easy and you and I were best friends forever. Sadly as I grew up, so did you. The first time you changed was in seventh grade. All of the sudden you asked for me to solve your problems. Those problems were simple, but once again they become worse.

In eighth grade you made adjustment to your personalty. You were confused and not sure who you are. So instead of actually find this out, you became like the person you secretly admired, English. For years you've wished you could be as cool as him. Maybe that's why you start acting like him by adding letters into your problems.

In ninth grade you just had to dial up the drama. By this time you were asking me to help you find your ‘x’. Sure at first I went along with it. At times I did find your ‘x’, and things were fine for the time. By the 11th grade it became harder to find your ‘x’. I thought I found her, but you told me it wasn’t her.

But I have to say the straw that broke the camel back was in 12th grade. Because of you I almost didn’t graduate. I guess that you were angry because I could no longer find your ‘x’ or solve your problems. Either way I can’t stand you anymore. This is enough for me.

This is really cute. I don't think anyone likes math and if they do, there's something wrong with them anyways so who cares. The only issues I saw, were a couple of tense issues. Otherwise this was really good.

I love this! I felt the same way during high school and college has not been much better. I always thought I liked numbers, but numbers really didn't like me. So I have to say that this captures how I feel about math too.

well written, very creative way to express your feelings about math. I loved it until A levels, then, it became a problem.

Exactly! Math asks too much sometimes lol. There are some mistakes in this though. "The first time you changed was in seventh grade you changed," this needs the second "you changed" removed.
"So instead of actually find this out," in this the "find" should be "finding."
"Maybe that's why you start acting like him," start should be started.
"Once again you changed ninth grade," implies it changed more than once during ninth grade so saying, "You changed once again in ninth grade," would get your message across.
There are some more mistakes, just look it over once or twice and you'll probably see them. Anyway, this was entertaining, good job :)

I never liked math and I agree with you about it trying to be like english with the letters and word problems and all,but its still its lame self. And what with finding its X? it needs to get over its X if you ask me. :P Great write!

lol this was awesome, I feel the same way about math: it was great in elementary school, but after that it just got way too complicated, and irritating. lol. this was a really clever way of putting the subject of math into words.

great job! =]
