The One Math I Didn't Hate
Yup. You guessed it. Though the signs weren't obvious, you figured out that I am not a big fan of math. However, thanks to my high school math teacher Mr. Bennet, who allowed me to take Geometry though I had not scored high enough in his algebra class, I found out I was good at some math. Pretty darn good in fact. I'm sure I've mentioned some of this before, but here it goes again....you see, to enter Geometry in my high school you were supposed to average at least a C in algebra as a prerequisite. Unfortunately, though I stayed for extra help just about every day, and though my engineer father tried to tutor me, my head couldn't wrap itself around algebra. Luckily though, thanks to my begging and my teacher's ability to ignore the signs and give me a chance, me and Mr. Bennet found out that I rocked geometry. High Bs and As rocked. Not bad for a girl who passed algebra by the skin of her teeth. I think it was something about being able to 'prove' things instead of just accept that x+y=z.
Though I haven't had to do any geometric equations or proofs since high school, I do still have an appreciation for geometry, especially in design.

5. via the montgomery
6. via cutting edge stencils
9. via bold folds
It makes me happy to see a resurgence in geometric patterns and shapes, since they are a constant on my inspiration board and in my idea file. I'm guess I'm glad I'm not alone.
