From Our Readers: You Were the Math Problem I Failed to Answer
I just wish I didn't have to solve you.

Math problems make me cry, shiver, and feel hopeless.

I never liked answering Math problems. They're mind-boggling that they make my head ache. They take me to another world full of numbers and formula. They end up making me feel dizzy, as if rode the rollercoaster for two days. Math problems make me sad, but whenever I manage to answer one or two of them, I feel really fulfilled and contented.

And you, you were the Math problem I wish I never encountered. You make me think too deep that I fell in a deep abyss. You make me feel like I was on a rollercoaster ride I don't remember signing up for. You were the problem my mind can't seem to solve, no matter how much I tried. My brain just can't deal with you.

You were so difficult that days, months, or even years weren't enough to figure out how complicated you are. Those days aren't enough to explore your vertices, midpoints, Xs, Ys, and even angles. 

But then I realized that those days were enough to solve you, the real you. Like a Math problem, you seemed tough on the outside. Once I got one thing right, solving the entire Math problem wasn't difficult at all. I found out about your facts—and I wish I didn't—because it was hard for me to handle the reason behind your problem. You were too hard to tame. 

You are the Math problem I wish I never encountered. You gave me the thrill, the excitement, the happiness when I finally figured you out. But you also made me feel disappointed, sad, hopeless. So much, so much that I want to get over you fast. Even if I loved the trill, the difficulty, and the fulfillment I got from solving you, I would never want you back.
