When life gives you lemons, make grape juice, then watch everyone wonder how you did it!


It's gotta
be perfect
my grades
must be perfect
my schedule
must be perfect
I
must be perfect
my life
must be perfect
my relationships
must be perfect
my environment
must be perfect
everything
must be perfect
but nothing
is perfect
and yet
I still wish
that I
was perfect

Other perfectionists out there probably understand this.

...yep. Anything less than 90% is unacceptable. But after reading the other comments, I feel less successful. As long as I keep a 4.0 all year, I'm happy. I guess I do that because I feel so imperfect in one area of my life that I have to validate myself through grades. Okay, so I ramble... awesome poem. :)

That speak straight to me and my personality.I'm a straight A student, and my friends are always asking me why I freak if I make a 96, i't still an A; I like "but it's not 100"!!!

YEEEEES! FINALLY! Something I can relate to! I MUST get my things perfect. I have a 99 in English? No way! I HAVE to get a 100! I have a 100? I have to do better. This is me. I can't even con-crit for this. There is perfection in the poem!
