    Being an overachiever is

    both a curse and blessing. I like that I can take on multiple projects and juggle things where most people are either to lazy or unmotivated to do. I'm not saying I'm better than anyone, it's in my nature to go above and beyond otherwise I wouldn't be content with myself. Yeah I...
