Math or Magic?

  Mathematics often seems like a mysterious world of numbers, symbols, and equations. But did you know that math is like a magic wand that can unlock the secrets of the universe? Let’s explore why math is more magical than you might think! Imagine you have a magic potion recipe. Each ingredient must be measured precisely to make the potion work. This is like how math works in the real world. From baking cookies to building rockets, math helps us measure and calculate things accurately. Have you ever seen a magician pull a rabbit out of a hat? Math can be just as surprising! Think of a number. Multiply it by 3. Now, add 18 to it. Divide the answer by 3, and subtract your original number. Did you get the number 6? No matter what number you started with, you will always end up with the same result as everyone else!

Gratitude

“Gratitude” “Only know you love her when you let her go” Passenger sang, casually stating one of the most relatable feelings all humankind experiences. Why do we only realize that mangoes are our favorite fruits when it's winter and we can’t have them? Why do we love school wholeheartedly once we’ve graduated? Why do we only realize that childhood is awesome once we’re asked to “grow up”? No matter how many “live in the moment” posters you see or how many hours you meditate, truly living in the moment seems impossible. All through your childhood you think about how cool it will be when you grow up, all through your thriving youth you think about being an adult, and you spend your adulthood regretting growing up so quickly. It's a vicious system, and there’s no way to escape it. No matter how hard you try, the toddler will want to be a teenager and the teenager a toddler again. This unexplainable feeling resides in our hearts for eternity, and it applies with reference t
