    Really Not Much to Say About This

    I've failed in all the important areas of my life.  After awhile, you kind of get used to it. I'm not afraid of failure, and I'm pretty at peace with it.  So, don't try to take this away from me. Here's an incomplete list: son parent spouse...

    I didn't do well in high school.

    I come from a strict, Asian family full of doctors and engineers and professors who have all studied a hard science. I'm not good at the sciences. My parents paid for expensive tutoring and I still got D's in physics and calculus. Little by little, my family's expectations of me...

    I left my phone in a public bathroom, my wallet was stolen at a bus stop, and I lost my keys three times this month. I have to pay for that ****, over and over again. The absence of all that missing crap is a constant reminder that I suck at even the basic tasks. Total failure.
