I’m there. I really do. Well, I’m really close.

I keep on thinking I should tick this off, cause I’m done with it… but somehow I never do.
I really don’t compare myself to others much, at all. I like being different, I like being who I am, and I like it that everyone else is different, too.
So what’s missing?
I’m almost there. :) I got rid of my braces today, which was a great boost for my self esteem, and a great improvement from yesterday, and well, one of my friends called me a hamster, cause her teeth are completely PERFECT, I was left with a small gap, but frankly, I don’t care, it adds character, and at least my smile looks like it comes from my heart, not solely from my lips.
All in all, I’m quite satisfied.
that I’m getting there.
I’ve set my due date for this goal to be the 19th of August (I come back from summer vacation on the 18th), however, once I mark this goal as “done”, I’ll definitely still keep track of it, just in case it starts receeding…
I’m getting there! Well, not on a good note, but: I failed my maths exam. Sucks, yeah, but hey, at least I tried – I’ve been trying for two years. And all the time all I could think was that my friend was so much better than me and she always got perfect grades – now I’ve failed my exam, and I can’t help but think “So what? A few weeks ago I’d have been afraid to even sit down and do it.” And well, I’m happy I’m not like all the geniuses I know – all they do is study all day (so they aren’t really geniuses – well, one of them is – they just work hard). They never take a break just for the hell of taking a break.
I’m happy with who I am, really :)
I have my last exam, maths. If I manage to not compare myself to all the geniuses in my class, well, then at least it will be a beginning to reaching this goal!
That way, I’ll get better from day to day.
