"So, I think the hardest thing I learned in mathematics was perseverance and patience, and this is the nature of mathematics. Math is very binary. It’s usually nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing… and then everything, you’ve got it. It’s also very humbling because, once you’ve got it, you realize it looks so obvious. So, you’ve got some humiliating experience like, ‘Oh, why didn’t I get that in the first place?’ But that’s what I learned, that’s the nature of mathematics."

Thanks for the advice. I plan on studying linguistics to help me become a better writer for all the film ideas I have in mind. I want to become a director and produce my own films.
When you don’t like yourself, you tend to dislike everything that is connected to you. New things seem more attractive. When you learn to love yourself then the same old life starts looking new and beautiful.
