Not Perfect

(I’ll be honest…)
Okay let get a few things straight. I’m not perfect, you’re not perfect, NOBODY IS FRICKEN PERFECT. Sorry to burst your bubble but what your guardians told you was a lie. You’re not perfect, you may be perfect in their eyes and that’s totally understandable and true the extent that you’re perfect the way you are but in all reality you’re not perfect and that’s okay. Everyone makes mistakes, humans are F.L.A.W.E.D. flawed. No one in this world walks around like a robot that can do no harm. Why am I on this rampage? Because im a 3.3 + gpa student, this has to do with me being scared of failure and mom my accepting no lower than a b-. now ive gotten lower than b’s before on tests I’m not gonna lie, but it usually doesn’t drastically affect my overall grade. I decided to tell my mom about the c I got my latin test only because my teacher decided to give us 4 -5 line random translation(which brought my grade down on the test). Now translation is not really a problem because you just memorize but think of it this way. Each chapter was about 20 lines and the test was on about 8 chapters. If you do the math that means there’s a total of about 160 lines. And she gave us only five lines on the test, but a random 5 lines, so we didn’t know which one to study. That’s 5 lines out of 160 lines making that a 1/32 ( 0.03%) chance of having remembered the right one. How does my mom respond to this when I tell her? Oh she decides to lecture me on my study techniques. That wouldn’t be so bad if it wasn’t something I already do. I tried to explain to her how the majority of all the classes got 50’s and she tells me I’m not the other students. Alright I find that understandable argument I’m NOT everyone else but at the same time you’d think those other low scores would make my point valid but I guess to my mom it doesn’t. But forget about my grade story. There are other things you can mess up on. Everyone makes mistakes you’re supposed to learn from them. I honestly should take my own advice because half the time I feel like it’s the end of the world when I ever I make a mistake even though it’s clearly not. That shows I over react to a lot, I know I can be a drama queen – probably why I do theatre- thus a flaw showing I’m not perfect either. So if you got offended by me telling you not perfect you shouldn’t be, it’s the truth. And i’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, YOU. ARE. NOT. PERFECT. And that’s okay I’ll accept you for who you are anyway <3. And a quick side note, if you think you’re perfect -…someone needs an ego check- then you’re clearly not perfect. It drives me crazy when people walk around and think they’re the hottest thing on the planet and they’re soo perfect. Well I just found your flaw Mr. Narcissistic. And there are soo many nice people out there that I can’t say are perfect because they are too nice, or they don’t stand up for themselves or possibly have made mistakes in the past or will in the near future. But keep this in mind, not being perfect does not mean you’re not a good person. It also doesn’t mean you should change who you are. Sorry about this excessive rant but I just needed to let my feelings out. And if it helps your perfect to me <3…even with your flaws :). Any “opions”?

ps: If you ever get the idea that i’m perfect which i doubt you will, just take a look at the url at the topic of the screen and notice how it doesn’t say opinions

Procrastination

Ahh, procrastination my life long dear friend that I hate. I want to blame my waiting till the last-minute on me getting distracted, which isn’t entirely wrong but most of the blame I think has to go to me procrastinating. Okay now be honest we all do it. But why!?!? No seriously why, I remember reading a cracked article about it (cracked.com it’s actually a really funny site, sorta like collegehumor.com, anyways back to my complaining) I was doing my English homework thinking of doing an article on procrastination but waiting till I was done with it and then go onto my laptop write my physics work THEN write this article. But noo instead I hopped right onto this website to procrastinate by writing about procrastination. You’re probably thinking -well at least im thinking- why don’t I just get off this website and do my home work. The answer is simple procrastination is fun and takes basically no effort. Unless you’re one of those people who procrastinate by doing more work than they have to. You know what I mean, people who instead of writing an essay find a million others things they have to do that they’d normally hate doing (ie. washing the dishes, cleaning their room, counting the hairs on their head). I know you can’t see me so you probably wont believe if I told you I just procrastinated writing this by getting distracted by youtube. I have a feeling I’ll never get my home work done. But what I find funny is im always procrastinating but I always get my work done. The thing is sometimes I don’t even remember starting my home work let alone finishing it. All I know is I go to school the next day go into my folder and there’s my home work. The only home work I really actually remember doing is my English, probably because I like to read and write, but then again I love math but I end up finishing math homework in class anyway. Look at me I’m off topic. But yah procrastination can be good or bad depending on the situation, but in the end it’ll most likely be a pain in the but when you look at the clock and realize you have an hour to do what ever it is your suppose to do. Well I’m going to get off this site for now and actually do my homework…is something I wish I could say, most likely I’ll find myself on youtube  until most of today is over.

How do you procrastinate? Any suggestions or ‘opions’ on how I can over come it, besides the obvious me just doing the work? (lol)
