It's okay, I don't always have to be perfect. Sometimes, it is okay to fail at something. Now if only I could just make myself believe that. I'm having a rough semester in school and I just found out today that I made a 44 on my second lab practical. I needed an 80 or better on everything in that class for the rest of the semester to be able to get a C in the class, which is the lowest possible grade I can get and not have to retake the class. :( So I'm going to have to retake the class. My final exam is next Monday and to be honest about it, there's no point in taking it even if I get a 100 on it I'll still have to take the course again. But I'm going to go in there on Monday at 1pm and take my final anyways, why you ask...let me tell you.
My grandfather always taught me to give everything my all, to try my hardest at everything I do, and most importantly...to NEVER GIVE UP!! So I will go in there on Monday with my head held high knowing that no matter what I have given this class my all, I have studied as hard as I possibly can I have do everything in my power to get the grade I need to pass; but that it just wasn't enough this time. But that is okay, I can try again next semester and I'll get it if I just put my mind to it and do my best.
Thank you Grandpa for teaching me that I should always do everything I can to triumph and that if I try hard enough I can do whatever I put my mind to.
So no I don't have to be perfect, I just have to be me and do the best that I can with what I have. I don't have to be as good as anyone else so long as I tried and worked hard I have nothing to be ashamed of.
