This year I'm taking Algebra II (my last required Mathematics class, thankfully), but of course I'm super behind because I hate Algebra and have done less than I should have every day this school year, so now I'm paying for it. Four hours of Algebra. Per day.
In case you had any doubts, the GIFs are NOT going to be like this:
(Unless, of course, it's more like Gilbert's face. But not that mild.)
(Also: I realise you might like Algebra. I'm sure there's something you don't like, so if you want to relate, just think of that. :)
Well, first of all, this is how I feel pretty much the whole time.
"Such tremblings and flutterings all over!"
Well, I, too, feel like I'm drowning at times. (No, no, I know that's not what it's supposed to be. Whatever.) But his face and deep breathing remind me of when I've just worked through a problem and I'm about to check it to see if it's correct. Deep breaths, Rae. You've...got this! Really! (Ahem. Not.)
If I get it wrong:
This is how I feel minus the smile. Anguished tears, not happy tears.
And if I get it right...
Fortunately, this happens more than 50% of the time...
When I get yet another question wrong and I just don't have enough energy to get frustrated anymore because I used it all figuring the problem--wrong.
These crying GIFs are always so accurate.
But there are times when I have to watch a bunch of videos (I do Khan Academy) about trigonometric functions (or whatever; today that's what it was) all in a row without stopping and I almost fall asleep.
Minus the almost-smile at the end, plus eyes closing.
Anyway, there you go. Perhaps you can relate, especially with finals. This was a fun diversion after enduring such arduousness today.
