Math Problem Solved!? Sorta

Good Afternoon everyone, hope you’re all having a nice start of the week so far, we’re nearing the middle of August now, still a bit to go though before we actually approach the end of the month! So I know you’re probably wondering what this post is all about…..it’s sorta math related, but it’s not me complaining about it this time, I mean it’s still not my favorite subject, but this time what I’ll be talking about with math is a little important……to me and I wanted to share on it because I was really happy with myself so that’s another reason I thought I’d talk about it!

Let’s get to what exactly is this math important breakthrough we’re talking upon…..okay so some of you know that Math is usually not my strongest suit I like to wear, I don’t actually wear suits, but if I did I think I’d probably be a nice looking secret agent out there don’t you think!? If we’re talking math however…..well I know it’s one of my weaknesses, I’m not quite the greatest at it, but I still attempt and try to understand it regardless, speaking of that….it’s actually what I wanted to talk about, we all know a good amount on counting money right, I’m sure we all do!

The same question goes for counting coins in replace to dollars as money counting, a lot of people might be able to do that really well….me for a very long time, I’ll admit that counting coins and giving it as money if needed, I always had a problem with that, it was always something I felt to be a little bit of a big challenge to me and yes I know, it’s coins how can you mess up coins….there’s ways, also whenever we’re given coins, be honest no one really sees them as worth much, we see it and we’d rather have someone else keep the coins or we put them in jars and never look at them again, but coins are worthy, it’s just our brains don’t see them as worthy, me well if I see a penny on the floor, I check to see if it’s on heads and if it is I pick it up and if it’s not I turn it over for someone else to find who would like a little luck and that, most of you probably don’t believe in that stuff, but I do!

If someone is having a bit of a tough day, I like to think that a penny that’s turned on heads will catch their attention and bring a little smile to them, who knows, but yeah that’s not what we’re talking about here, I just thought I’d throw that in there….but to the story we go….long story short, I was organizing my bag and well I won’t say I found coins in my wallet, they were always there I just kind of forget about them being there a lot of the time….anyway, I took out the coins and I don’t really know why I did this, but I decided to count them! Now I know the basics of coin counting,

Mainly with the quarters, you know the 25, 50, 75, 1.00 that, but when adding in dimes and nickels to the mix, normally that’s when my brain goes into a sing along of the Night Before Christmas song, where Jack sings about I think the other seasons or when he sees snow for the first time, but just the part that goes “What’s this, what’s this” yeah just that part over and over ooor the High School Musical part of Status Quo, where Sharpay sings “This is not what I want, this is not what I planned and I just got to say, I do not understand….that’s me with adding up coins together!

HOWEVER today was a breakthrough, I even took a math quiz that asked some questions about what coins equaled to the same amount and how much each amount had within the set of coins shown if that makes sense, so “Here’s a set of coins, how much is here” that kind of thing! I sat there and did my best to answer correctly to see if I understood it well enough and guess what guys…..I got it! I got 5 questions in a row correct, my lucky number by the way…..we won’t talk about question 6…..I missed counted…..not by a lot, I just went a little over when I should’ve went lower, had I counted correctly I would have definitely gotten it, but I just didn’t double check, but it’s okay!

I got 5 correct back to back and that’s a new record for me and I am proud of myself for it lol, so proud that I wanted to write about it, but yeah, August 9th, 2021….I figured out and can now say, I know how to count coins, I know you’re probably reading this and possibly went to another more interesting post or may be reading this as if I’m a little mad and wondering why I am excited about it, it’s because even though it’s a small thing, I still consider it both an achievement as well as an improvement in my math skills, I’m still not the greatest with math, but for me I see it as a step closer to getting a little bit better with it and it’s important to try your best to improve on the things that you may not be that great at, it doesn’t matter how big or small it may be a little improvement is still a pretty big achievement!

So remember don’t think small things aren’t important, if it makes you happy and you’re enjoying yourself and feel proud of yourself for it, then go right ahead and celebrate those small victories, they’re just as important as the big ones!

Sooo I also recorded this post as an episode, it’s similar with a slight different thought approach, it’s pretty much a shorter version of the story in case you don’t feel like reading this lengthy post!

Don't Stop Improving or Believing….Ep. 31 Daydreamer's Podcast

Happy Monday, hope you're all doing alright! In today episode, we just chat a little about self improvements and being happy and proud of yourself on any kind of achievement that you come across including the small moments in life, we always focus on the big achievements that we have in life, which is great, but it's okay to embrace and feel happy about some of the small moments that we get as well, they too can be pretty important!!

Let’s Talk: Whatever This Post Is….

Good Evening, hope you all have been enjoying your Tuesday and are well! How’s this month treating you all so far!? For me it’s kind of odd, even though I know we’ve entered the month of July…..it still feels a little weird, not as weird, but still kind of weird! The amount of times I’ve mixed up my days with the start of July…..let’s just say if there was a jar here and I had to put say….5 dollars every time I thought it was Wednesday when it’s actually Tuesday or Monday when it’s actually Sunday, we’d have an almost, but still unfilled jar going, now I don’t do math so don’t ask me how much would actually be in the jar, if you do just know my brain might just have an error warning flashing…..okay not really, but sometimes math makes me feel like that!

Also I did try to do the math on it just now as I’m writing this, I had to use the calendar to help me a bit, because this past Saturday I did technically think that it was Sunday when it was actually Saturday…..don’t ask, I just woke up that day thinking it was Sunday, it wasn’t until I watched one of my favorite streamers to where I realized it was indeed Saturday (she doesn’t stream on Sundays) BUT considering that was the first mix up….we’d already have 5 dollars in a jar, “Technically speaking” now I might’ve also mixed up another day after that can’t really remember, sooo we could also have another 5 which would be 10 bucks already!

HOWEVER, seeing that I DID mix up Saturday with Sunday and remember it we’ll just keep it at 5 dollars, if I happen to mix up another day and remember it as well, that will add up to 10…..alright math session over, can’t believe I actually did that, little surprised….I have to say, my brain is good from all that math I just did lol! Don’t mind me I don’t really know where that came from, I kind of thought of when you have to put money in a jar every time someone swears or says something that isn’t allowed to be said or whatever people make up these days and for some reason, the mixing of the days popped up instead and that’s where the imaginative jar of money came from!!

You know this post was going to be about an episode of a show that I watched a few days ago, one of my favorite shows actually, but I’m thinking that I might change that, I just feel like I should have it be a whole new post, because this is turning into one of my random thought moments and I was not expecting that, I mean I definitely wasn’t expecting to be having math be one of the things I talked about here, I don’t even like math for the simple fact that it stresses me out, but that also could just be because I have a very hard time understanding it…..I always try to really get it, but my brain has a difficult time processing it, it’s like it’s hard for me to follow!

I don’t understand how numbers can be sooo…..complicated, it’s weird, now I’m probably going to go off track here for a moment…sorry about that, I’ll get back on track in second, but I remember I wrote a post a good while back where I discussed Numerology, although it has numbers involved…..I feel it to be more science then actual Math (Maths) probably just me here on that, that’s okay….but what I’m trying to get at is, I find the science of Numerology more interesting then Math…..now that could just be for the simple fact that I LOVE Science, it was one of my favorite subject back in my school days, still enjoy it, mainly Earth science and things like that, but Math/Maths the subject…..

I don’t know about that one, I’m always left so confused with it, but I try to somewhat get it, although I don’t think it likes me much either if I’m being honest, that aside I know that you can just grow to learn math and be better at it same with Science if you aren’t the greatest fan of it, as well as any other subject, but me and Maths don’t always see eye to eye, Numerology although yes math is a big part of it….I find it’s easier to decode because you can just look into certain numbers that you find pop out at you the most and discover a message with it, so it’s not that bad!!

Science…..it’s just fascinating to learn, well to me anyway, History well I say it depends, if it’s Geography or World Geography I find it interesting although I don’t always remember what I get from it, but it’s still cool nonetheless…..but History, HISTORY…..sometimes it can be a good thing to learn and other times you can fall into a deep rabbit hole with it where you think to yourself “probably shouldn’t have looked too far here” but at least in those moments you learn a little bit more as well, so in a way it’s both good and bad depending how you choose to see it!!

Did I say I was going to get back on track!? Sorry….I wasn’t expecting for it to turn out this way, it just sort of did…..hopefully it made some kind of sense and that it wasn’t TOO off track, if it was then…..hey maybe the post wanted it to be, it might’ve just been my brain here though, I can’t help what pops into my head at times! I hope you all have a goodnight, it’s getting late nearly 11:30pm close to midnight so I’m going to sign off now!!

All The Love ❤ ❤
