I came into college with an attitude that I had to own at all-- all mostly implying studying. If I may say, I’m pretty good at studying and was considered pretty smart during high school (I made it into UCLA, didn’t I?). My parents were also aware of this, and after I graduated high school, they told me that in college I would have to step it up a bit further. They said that if I messed up in college, I pretty much messed up my life. And in a way, I believe that the statement is true. Moreover, since for college, students are selected, we’re all at the same level. So, if I want to be or do better, I have to push myself a bit further. And as I came into college, I was more than willing to push myself. I became ambitious…to the point that I no longer have the right to complain that I’m tired or tell my roommate, “let’s go eat. I’m starving!” because I deprive myself of sleep and food, all in the name of studying. I’m not taking care of my body and if I keep this up, my chances of landing a room in UCLA medical center increases. Yet, I’m not really taking drastic actions. Hopefully I will come to realize that without a proper functioning body, my mind is useless. But as for now, my ambition is blinding me, and although I know what I’m doing, I’m not doing anything for it. So, why do I do what I do? Because I’m stupid.
