It was about finding the perimeter/area of regular polygons and I thought I had it down pretty good, but I think what got me is that I'm not sure if the apothem is from the center to a corner, or the center to the middle of a side

i’m pretty sure the apothem is a perpendicular bisector from the center of the shape to a side. to find the area...
1. divide your shape into triangles by splitting your angles and connecting that line to the center of the shape
2. find the central angle measures you just made by dividing 360 by the number of total angles in the shape
3. your apothem is going to be an angle bisector of the central angle you found. you should also notice that your apothem is the height of a right triangle. so divide the central angle by two to get that top angle measure of your right triangle.
4. use soh cah toa to find the opposite side measure
5. find the area of the triangle you just found and multiply that the appropriate amount of times to find the area of the whole shape

hopefully that helps. here’s a nice video i found explaining it too.

I'm sad right now.

I don't know why though.?

I just have terrible anxiety about the future and it sometimes just...hits me. It's doing that right now.

I hate not having control over the future, it makes me wanna just sleep all day sometimes cause if I fail in the future I might as well not try to accomplish anything.

I don't know what I wanna do when I'm older, what if I die alone? What if I get into a fight with someone close to me and we can't fix our relationship? These thoughts hit me. All the damn. Time.

I might take a hiatus, to focus on school, art, and just life in general...

do you guys ever get the feeling that none of your friends really like you that much? like i have a whole group of gal pals but they all talk to each other and hang out with each other all the time and never really seem to interact with me. like, i don’t think i do anything inherently wrong; they just don’t seem to like me as much as they like each other. i don’t get it. what did i do wrong? why am i so lonely all the time?
