I'm not as smart or in control of my life as people think I am. I mean I have a lot of cool accomplishments that make me seem like I have my life together. I'm only 17 and I've already graduated high school and gotten my CPhT. And all throughout high school I managed to travel between Chicago and Dallas every weekend. I was also in the national honor society, on the cheer team, and on the diving team, in addition to keeping a part time job. In text it seems like a lot. Like I am so young but have already done so much with my life. People expect me to be some sort of genius or extremely hard worker. But to be honest I'm probably no better than anyone else, if anything worse. I'm not "perfect". Just like many other people I get bored in class, the teachers' voices annoy me, I have to zone out or take a bathroom trip to keep my brain from hurting. On days off I will sit in bed and watch netflix from the time I wake up to the time I go to bed. I suck at communication. Just some things I've done make me seem so decorated and because of it people are expecting me to be uber successful. I mean of course I have plans to be successful, but it's easier said than done. And I don't know if I can do it.

that's why you try. It's not about the destination, it's all about the journey there.
