My Own Problem...

Wed, 05/14/2014 - 23:16 -- Louska


You know what makes me tick....


My lack of ambition sometimes

Then I sit back and wonder “how come?”

Then I make excuses...

Me, myself, and I, make me tick

I could have been a valedictorian...

Heck, I'd even settle to be a salutatorian, a class president, medical certified...

But, yet, I let myself gravitate to being a little past average

Sure, a 3.2 unweighted GPA and a 3.5 weighted GPA may sound awesome to a D average student

But to me? To me, that's not enough

I know what I'm capable of, I know what I can accomplish

The last four years of my high school career weren't even close to my boundaries

Watching my peers get scholarships while I sit empty handed...


But I won't be a nuisance to myself any longer

Oh, yes! On this day forward I promise to do the best I can to excel in my academics and life

More studying, more listening, and more believing

Get out more,

Because what's the point of knowledge if you know no one to share it with

More connections

More contacts


Because honestly, I don't want to feel less about myself when I know I can be more

So, no, I won't be that student or worker that leaves empty handed

I am going to be someone I'm proud of

I won't allow myself to make me tick any longer...
