Ugh, today is the day I do my dreaded math homework. I sit in my chair until my back hurts, usually at least 3 to 4 hours, until it’s all done. I hate doing my math homework. It takes a really long time for me to complete. I start from the beginning of each chapter and do all the practice exercise, which takes a long time, so I can understand the material once I get to the actual exercise problems. I have to this in order to understand the material better and comprehend it to the best of my ability and when I do this and I still can’t comprehend the material then I know I have a serious problem. But I have an answer booklet which shows me the answers to all the odd problems which is kind of a handicap because sometimes I have to admit I just copy the answers out of the answers book instead of trying to work them out on my own.
Math is a hard subject for me but right now I have an low “A” in the class. Which I am very proud of. Yesterday I played hookie from class because I wasn’t feeling that well in the morning and didn’t want to have an upset stomach during the class period. Plus I knew there was nothing due and I would not be missing out on anything important so I just basically didn’t show up. I know that is terrible of me but I just don’t like going to that class when there’s nothing to turn in.
Today is my mom’s birthday so we will be celebrating that tonight. We are going out to Gary Chu’s, a Chinese restaurant that she likes and then coming home to have cake and open gifts. I like having birthdays at our house it’s always fun to acknowledge someone on their special day. I didn’t really know what to get her though so I just got her a gift certificate for Macy’s so she can go shopping and pick out something nice for herself. I think she’ll appreciate it because she loves to go shopping and she always goes to Macy’s. She already had a Macy’s card so she might just use it to pay off part of her Macy’s card already. But that’s okay too. I had fun going shopping for the card with my dad today as he was the one who paid for it.
We went to the mall and had coffee at Starbucks together and then we went home. It was quick but I don’t get to spend that much time with my dad lately as he is always working and I am usually at my boyfriend’s house. I love both of my parents very much and I am so happy that they are still together. I feel like one of the lucky ones and I hope that when I get married I will be able to stay together with my partner for the rest of my natural life. Which is why I feel like I have found my special partner and I believe he is the one for me. I would get married to him tomorrow if he asked me to. I love him that much. Anyways I hope my mom has a good birthday and night tonight I wish I could do more than just get her a little gift card but I hope she realizes how much I love her and appreciate all that she does and has done for me.
