#8: Who do you love and what are you doing about it?
I love my family. I do my best to excel in academics so I can make them proud.
My family is one of achievers. My parents graduated from the University of the Philippines, my oldest sister is going to Middlebury, and my other older sister is currently studying in the college my parents graduated from. My twin sister and I are going to graduate from high school in March 2014, which isn’t too far away, come to think of it, and I’m running for batch Valedictorian.
Here comes the pressure.
The pressure wasn’t too bad the first time around; I was alright with it because I was so confident in myself. Now, seeing the other people doing so well, I don’t think I can take it anymore.
I have to do my best in every single thing I do or else I won’t graduate as the top student of the batch. I’d be so disappointed in myself, and so will the rest of my family.
I need to make it to the top, but I just can’t motivate myself to hold the position.
May the Lord God help me.
