I'd say math is hard for me but yanno, so is surfing and I've not given either skill much attention in terms of learning them or in practice. Perhaps it's not so much that math is hard for me but more that math requires a certain level of attention and experience with to gain any level of proficiency using and I've just not cared enough to follow through with that process.
Yeah it's tedious. I like it up to a certain point, but then that interest completely drops off at higher forms. Geometry, balancing equations, and calculating loans are fun though, I mean as far as math goes anyway. Commoner's math. Not that higher forms aren't interesting, I'm just not that interested in doing them myself.
I know... I just wanted to read your reaction to that answer.
I really don't know the average time, as sometimes they're done quickly, while others can take up to 2-3 hours to do. For this one, I'd say maybe an hour of work. It's funny, I'd say my most successful pieces either took a lot of time (like 6-8 hours) or they took like 30 minutes... Go figure.
