Simple maths, it all adds up!

I've never really seen myself as a "dumb" person.
Growing up, I've been known as the girl who loves maths & I do. However about a month ago, I received my GCSE results and I got a C in maths. Now I'm not saying this is a bad grade but I'm saying that I could/should have done better than a pass.
As a result of getting a C in maths, I can't study it at A level. To be honest, I thought my life had ended when I looked at the piece of paper with my results on. I felt like that piece of paper defined my life.

Two people close to me told me they were disappointed. They were disappointed because they know I could have done better. I've found that, you do need people who don't always tell you "It's okay" but people who'll tell you like it is to make you see things differently.
Obviously, it's not a great feeling when you feel like you've let everyone down which is why I'm glad I have the most amazing friends and parents who are there to encourage me and pick me up when I feel down! I felt like because I can't do maths for A level my life was over but it's really not. DUH.

 My life doesn't end here!
There are still so many other things I can focus on, especially the other subjects I'll be studying and of course, this blog. Truthfully, some aspects of maths I was doing at GCSE was hard for me, and maybe me getting a C is a blessing in disguise because maybe, just maybe I wouldn't have excelled in maths at A Level. I mean, just because I take it for A Level doesn't mean I'd have done well in it.
I was devastated when I didn't do as well as I thought I would but it's made me want to work harder at A Level. I want to do my friends and family proud. At the moment, I am still embarrassed to tell people my grade but I don't want to feel the same way in two years time so I gotta work hard!

 I have to subtract fear, add hard word, multipy my faith in God and  divide my social life in half and forget about SOHCAHTOA. See what I did there? ;)

The fact of the matter is if you think you can do it then you most probably can. Don't let people bring you down.  
Also, be careful who surround yourself with, if you associate yourself with people who don't dream big, who don't want to achieve anything in life then that's what your mindset will be like.

Aim high!
