GBE2 Blog On Prompt 78: In Which I Only Pass College Math Classes Because of Helpful People

This is for GBE2 Prompt 78 Numbers 

The only reason I managed to get good grades in the many, many math classes I had to take when I was in college was because I had help from folks online who did not have a tendency to solve problems backward or skip entire steps because they forgot them. I do not retain math rules/techniques very well! The step by step examples they have in text books often do not work for me because I have no idea of what is supposed to be happening. (Math examples are somewhat less confusing if there is also written instruction along with the example.)

Not Doing the Nanowrimo...

Much to my frustration, it seems pretty apparent that I will not be able to do the Nanowrimo after all. I am currently having massive trouble with my computer due to one of my hard drives dying on me. At one point, I was pretty sure I had lost everything on my e-drive, but was eventually able to recover my writing, design, and portfolio folders. 

I am extremely upset with myself because I do not really have anything in the way of back ups for my writing or other projects. Partly this is because I never got around to buying back up portable hard drives, and partly this is because I can't currently afford them because I am still not financially solvent.

I am going to be having a friend come look at the computer and see if he can fix it. (Anyone interested in helping out, I have a Pay Pal donate button.) If/when the computer if finished, I might try continuing the nano project, but it does not look likely since I was already having problems writing it.

GBE2 Blog On Prompt 77: Hooked

You want to grab someone’s attention from the first line. This is true for an article, a story, an essay, a novel. You need a hook. This particular prompt is going to be about some of my favorite first lines.

Doing the NaNoWriMo

I decided that I was going to try to do the NaNoWriMo this year. (Unofficially. I didn't sign up this year.) I have not yet started because of a backlog of other writing I have not been doing. (I wish I could say because of my ongoing job hunt but it is mostly because I keep getting distracted because of stress/depression.)
