  1. I believe Jesus rose to save our souls FROM math….but that is just my opinion lol Love that you were cackling with the moon even then 😀 XXX

  2. Good write, Magaly. Also, I love the art. Wow, perfect face of defiance.

    Because of what Gina said, I have to tell this joke:

    A Jewish boy is struggling with math. His parents have tried every way they can think of to help him, but nothing works. Finally they hear about a successful, progressive Catholic school and, in desperation, they enroll their son.
    Soon they see a change in him. He comes home from school every day and goes to his room to study math. His grades improve drastically. His parents ask him, “We’re so happy and proud of your achievement, but how did it happen?” The son says, “Well, when I went to school and saw that guy nailed to the plus sign, I knew they were serious about Math.”

  3. Fifteen is indeed an age where our selves are in turmoil, yet here they seem united and organized, and triumphant over that very ambiguous and difficult Age of Hormones–deft and relatable writing Magaly–and good thing I didn’t read the comments first or I would have snorted coffee on your plus signs. ;_)

    • Fifteen is one of those ages when most of us feel like we we are about to burst… So much world to deal with. I think I had to grow up too fast in some ways, and not fast enough when it came to others…

      I, too, almost lost it while reading the symbols, lol!

    • I did love library girl (still do). The way she could just fly into a book, without ever having to come out… unless she wanted to. Yes, they would have been friends… and would have traveled into never ending stories dressed to kill. 😀
