Musings of a Museum Fanatic: Numbers



I hate math!

I have never been a huge fan of math or numbers.  As you could probably tell social studies and English person.  One would think having such an aversion I wouldn't be so gosh darn fixated on numbers but I just can't help it.  

For a while I was just completely obsessed with my Blogger ticker and my scale.  It was ridiculous how many times I was checking each during the week, especially the Blogger ticker.  While I was at work I would check it, I could check it on my phone and then of course multiple times when I got home in the evening.  Cause the number was really going to change all that much.  The scale was a little better but I was checking it in the morning or at night or both every day for weeks.  It's not like I was doing anything that would change the number drastically or anything I was just a woman obsessed.   

This probably went on for at least a month and half.  Then one day about three to four weeks ago something just clicked and I had my WTF? moment.  Seriously WTF? Why was I driving  myself nuts over stupid numbers?  Since then I haven't stepped on the scale once!  I will admit I do look at the blog counter but I don't open up that page just to look at the number.  It feels so freeing!  I hate math why am I letting it drive me crazy?

Why do we drive ourselves nuts about these types of things?
Why is it so darn hard to stop once we've started too?!

  1. It's easy to be obsessed with the numbers but remember why you started in the first place. There are more important things than numbers.
