Almost failed math freshman year of high school. Wound up taking AP Calc senior year. Put in the hours and you'll get it.

Yeah, I'm not a math person. I passed with a D this past year.

I'm a literature/English guy. I rip that class into shreds when I feel like it.

Love math, hate English.

Much more technical than interpretive.

It's been 3-4 years since I last been in college and the thing that always pissed me off is when a professor would say that the material that needs to be read for a class may seem a lot but really isn't.

Multiply that by 5 and it was not out of the question to end up reading 25 plus books for one semester!

when I tested out of my math requirement (as an english major, I either have to take one class or place out) it was up there with my best moments

I'm an interpretive person.

There's a reason why Pink Floyd is my favorite band.

That's something else. I love meaningful music with meaningful lyrics.

I also like interpreting lyrics.

That's why Iron Maiden is my favorite band.

I think they're one and the same, in it's most basic forms. Music may be different in it's delivery, but the same ideas are there. Both involve looking deeper into ideas and words than one would at first glance.

I love interpreting lyrics as well.

That's why this avant-garde techno new wave polka folk band is my favorite band.

You've probably never heard of them.

True, but it's much more interesting to interpret music that I enjoy versus literature that I do not.

I prefer learning and studying facts, not opinions
History has both, so it's in the middle
