I’m so competitive! I can’t believe how competitive I could get. I was driving with my old Honda Civic on a high way, in the speed limit and listening to music. I love doing that; it’s just a great feeling of freedom I get when driving. So an X5 passes me and gives me the stupid look: ARE YOU AFRAID TO BREAK THE EGGS DRIVING SO SLOW!! That kind of look! And I was driving like 110-120 k\h!
I got so mad and had to show him how I can drive with my Honda and him in his BMW! By the way, I won till my turn came and he couldn’t believe a woman can drive like that. But my competitive nature doesn’t just show in driving. I put myself to high school twice just to prove my dad wrong and show to my self I can get 100% in math and science, because I studied English major in high school when he wanted me to study math. I did it, I got full marks, but I think Math is so boring! I just don’t know how I got to be like this. Why am I competing? Who am I trying to empress? I 28 almost 29, why don’t I just pull back and accept 90% and not try to kill myself for a 100%?
It’s not always bad to want perfection, but I think I should start learning to be ok with the 90% sometimes!
