    I am someone who has made lots of mistakes in

    my life. Some of them, I knew I was doing, others, I learned when it was too late. I try to own up to my mistakes, and try and learn from them. We are all human, and we all make mistakes, and I am not any different than anyone else.

    And many of them at that.

    From taking a wrong turn while driving, to walking into the wrong type of club. Most of my mistakes are because of others messing with me, but i can admit i make a lot of mistakes myself.

    I am a person who makes mistakes.

    Maybe the mistake was joining EP. Maybe the mistake was thinking I deserve more than I had. I never had anything, so I got used to it. counting your change, looking down, taking insults as a way of life. Then I got sick and tired of it, so I dropped out of 6th form, joined...

    What Is Perfect?

    The best thing about mistakes is that know one can truthfully say they don't make mistakes because without mistakes we would be perfect and know one is perfect because perfect never had a true definition to applying to human beings.
