    best school in the state was crushed. It is an amazing school, so of course many people want to go there, because of this they have to hold a lottery to decide who gets in, and who does not.

    I am my own worst enemy, I shattered all my dreams by negativity and pessimism. I was always afraid to take a chance, I was afraid to do my best. I was afraid of failure. So here I am, with no hope, and it's my own fault.
