Dreams

Dreams are great, more dreamers less beancounters.

I never gave up on my dream... I just never had one. Its the most frustrating thing ever. There are no tips on finding your dream. Which always makes me feel like so strange outlier.

Common core math is awesome. It just makes math more accessible, and trains people to understand it better. Back in the day when you got to multiplication tables math became more rote memorization. So things like 5 x 62. Instead of needing pen and paper. You can just break it up and then add. 5 x 6 = 30, so 5 x 60 = 300. 5 x 2 = 10, 300 + 10 = 310. 5 x 62 = 310. So when kids make the jump to algebra and beyond they also have a better understanding of why just opposed to what. Incidentally I use to do math this way and get yelled at for not doing the way they showed. So I feel justified that this is the new way.

I think dreams are overrated. My life is great as you all know and I had no dreams for it.

If you want cheap rent, sometimes you have to live so far away from the job that a lot of your income goes to gas. And it isn't just that the neighborhoods aren't 'nice,' it's that they're often high crime. Not good for a single mom and a kid.

Hey man youre not an outlier. Im right there with you, but lemme tell you, at the age of 40 Im just now finding things Im interested in and going back to school to pursue them. If you had asked me 6 months ago, hey would you ever think about going to school for aerospace engineering or physics? Id have laughed you out of the room. Never too late to find cool shit.
