...when I don't meet my own standards I feel like a failure.
I got another A- in one of my classes in Jschool. I totally deserved it. I think I know which assignment I didn't do my best on and perhaps destroyed my A+ excellence. This is a fair grade but now I'm just regretting not giving it my all. I regret waiting to the last minute to complete some of my assignments. I regret not utilizing office hours and getting feedback on my areas of "growth." I regret not trying harder. If I truly did my best, I'd have earned an A.
As of today I have all A's and 2 A-'s. That is nothing to scoff at but that isn't perfection and perfection is what I strive for.
My GPA takes a hit again. *sigh* As does my ego.
Until next time...
