Why do parents always end up being right?

I have spent the past two days manically brushing up on my maths and analysis skills in readiness for psychometric tests. I am due to take a couple as part of job applications but because I have left the majority of my maths skill to gather dust the task is proving to be quite tiresome. As I sit up at all hours recapping and trying to rehash the very basic yet very forgotten rules and patterns in maths and data analysis I cant help but remember my dads constant nagging about how important math skill is. Back at GCSE and A Level I couldn’t wait to see the back of numbers and start my Literature degree but now reality has set in and I have found that there is no escaping the special subject.

This is by no means a complaint its just now as I hurt my brain pulling and picking at every tiny piece of knowledge and skill I once had, I wish that I had listened to my dad and brushed up on the skills every so often. So amidst the feelings of self pity and hope that I will get grips to the materials in time, I have decided that life would be a lot easier if I just listened to my parents…

Back to studying.



About Plantain Periodicals

Hello! Welcome to the Plantain Periodicals blogs. The name stems from the kitchen moments I had with my friends at university cooking plantain and planning our lives together. I have used this space as a window into my mind and the way I make sense of all my experiences through writing.This is where I share those conversations and moments that happen inside my head as a young woman growing up in 21st century London. Hopefully you'll be entertained and also learn a thing or two. My main blog ad: www.nissiknows.wordpress.com My literature blog: www.plantainperiodicals.wordpress.com NMx
