Jaimie, I totally agree! Thank goodness it got recorded!

And Petras, in answer to your question, it kind of depends on the type of
math, but half the battle is believing in yourself, as chchsy as that
sounds. You know you're capable. It may be that you have to do something
different to learn the material, and it may take you a bit longer, which
can be a bummer. But if it's something you want to do, you can do it!
