But math is hard!

Mum had an interesting conversation with someone at work one day that she shared with me on the way home. It went like this:

Some lady: Where'd you say Sujin went to school again?
Mum: Agnes Scott.
Some lady: What's she going to major in?
Mum: Well, she's thinking about a math major, and--
Some lady: But why? Math is hard!

When Mum told me this, I could do nothing but laugh. It didn't hurt that she told me this on the way home, and I was wearing my "math is hard" shirt.

Also, I'm still not finished with room organisation yet. However, I did get to talk to Dee last night for about an hour and a half, which made up for my still-messy room. During the reorganisation, I found a can of chalk. Where did that come from? I know I had a chalkboard that I used to play school with when I was little, but I don't know where it went. Maybe it's at Grandmother's, like so many of my old toys. I may check on that today. Of course, I've taken terrible care of it over the years, so is there anything to put on it so the board returns to chalkboard quality again? If so, I'll have to look into that.
