Portrait of the Math Slacker As A Young Girl
Day two of 25 problem math assignment.
No, don't feel sorry for her. She brought this on herself, since yesterday she spent sneaking time onto the computer when she thought no one was looking.
Today she learned a valuable lesson called "Netflix Recently Watched log" and "Internet Usage History". So while she may not be doing much in arithmetic, she's learning tons about Computer Science.
What cracks me up most about this picture is the internal monolog I know is going on behind that sweet expression:
"This isn't fair! My brothers are done with school already! They don't have to do as much school. This is so stupid. I would be done with school if it wasn't for this stupid math. Why do we even have to have math? I'm never going to use math in my bakery. I'll make sure of that. Hey! Let's see how tiny I can shred the edges of this lined paper!"
I love this girl because I was her when I was ten. Math is stupid. She would be done with school if it wasn't for math. And, if anyone can figure out how to do it, I have no doubts that Lotus will find a way to banish math from her future bakery.
As long as the cupcakes are good, no one will even notice.
