Not sure if I mentioned before I was a math minor in college, and this formula is one I will never forget. It is burned into my brain. Ah, sweet quadratic equation. I don't even remember what you're supposed to solve, but I remember you regardless. Thank you to the teacher who made us recite it ad nauseum in song, ensuring I would never forget that x equals the opposite of b plus or minus the square root of b squared minus four a c, divided two a.

That corner of eternally occupied brain space will never be filled with sweet memories of my time overseas or the laughter and love of my family. No, dear teacher, it will always be occupied with formulaic song. How ever may I thank you?
