I used to be pretty good at math, and I certainly use it all the time. Baking, knitting, trying to split checks after using a Groupon and then calculate tip afterwards (without resorting to my cell phone tip calculator) …

Time is an aspect of math that escapes me. For some reason, I looked at my calendar for the next 2-3 weeks, and became so panicked at how full it was, I just decided to keep adding things, as though additional activities would cancel each other out in some kind of algebraic magic.

Unfortunately, this has not happened. Oops.
