Why I Feel Sick When I Walk Into Math Class

By: Darthmat

The following is a true story. I once walked into my 3rd period math class, and felt a little queezy. It was only for a second, and then passed. I get that way when I do something I really don't want to. So what's so bad about math class? I happen to like math, especially word problems that involve logic. However, in math, we were learning problems that went along the lines of
x+4*3=6x/3x-12+2
This was extremely easy for me, besides the fact it is a simple problem, we learned this last year, and had been working on this kind of problem for weeks.
So, as you can see, I was wasting my time sitting in my cramped desk, doing problems I've understood for a year. This was a forty-five minute class, which is average. But that's not the problem. The problem is I was sitting in my desk for forty-five minutes working on something I already understood. I could be doing something far better; like something constructive, educational, or even fun. Tedious repetition is not my idea of any one of those things.
So the reason I feel sick when I go into math class because that's forty-five minutes of my life I will never get back. We don't have an unlimited time on this place, and we should make the most of it. We shouldn't be wasting our time on frivolous things like this.
