You know what the WORST thing in the world is? Expectations. From you.

For some unfathomable reason, people who meet me always seem to get the idea that I am an achiever. My friends, for a long time after they meet me, think I study hard and know lots of stuff. Classmates who ask me what I studied the earlier day think I’m lying if I tell them that I tried to study but I got distracted. All of this leads to the general notion that I will excel at whatever I will do. Honestly, I thought it was just my family. But, here, complete strangers have told me that they expect a good rank from me in my pre-meds. It is one big, sodding, headache. I need an aspirin NOW.
What would have been amazing is that I would have been somehow able to be as hardworking as they think I am. I would absolutely love it. But, even though I am fairly intelligent and good at grasping concepts, I have the attention span of a goldfish, and the determination of porridge. Hence, these expectations do nothing except make me into a cranky, cynical, trembly mass of nerves. I don’t know what to do. Any helpful suggestions will make me your willing slave forever.
