i mean c'mon, endless number of formulas and ways of solving it, you're not going to remember all of the methods, right?

You must first change your attitude. Your desciption concerning "numbers, formulas, ways, and methods" is very telling. You have not understood at all the purpose of the study of mathematics. Learning to memorize is not learning to think. Leaning to regurgitate is not learning to solve. Learning to reproduce is not learning to synthesize. Fix your purpose and there will be no need to question your existence.
