    But I Try

    Trying to be perfect (at least, perfect by my standards) I set myself up to try to do the impossible.  I have an extremely busy schedule, but I try to be the best at everything I do.  I suppose that some things in my life have to be put on the back burner, but I don't...

    Seriously? I Thought This Was My Middle Name ...
