People love to judge my character based on my academic history and my past inability to sell my soul to school, like many of the people I’ve surrounded myself with. I’ve been a consistent fuck up, struggling with setting my priorities straight and somehow claiming to reach an ambition that clearly wasn’t going anywhere due to my performance. What people don’t see is the work I’ve achieved on myself as a person. I’ve been emotionally distraught, both self-inflicted and out of my control, made unforgivable mistakes, unhealthy, and with that came the opportunity to try and discover the unknown. I was able to learn, grow, travel and observe. I found out what I wanted and who I was, and what I personally needed to do to effectively solve problems and reach any goal. So now that I’ve fulfilled my need to get all my shit together, I can fucking do anything — academic success included.
