No Common Sense + Creative = I Hate Math.

Math always gave me anxiety. Like, big time. I wish some adult, at least ONE, had assured me it was okay not to be great at math. I didn't bloody care what time trains met if one left at 10 pm from Atlanta, and the other at 3:16 from Chicago. Like, seriously, who cares. But …

New Yorkers! Russians! Africans! South Dakotans! Londoners! Alsatians! You, taking a coffee break! You, on the toilet! (you shouldn't use …
