What drives me to give all my effort is the fact I’m obsessed with the idea of always working toward improving myself. This started the summer going into 11th grade because of athletics and I started looking at colleges. Even if an assignment is not mandatory, I’ll do the work because I want to have a better GPA. It hasn’t driven me crazy with stress, but it’s still a mental game with myself. For athletics I started running more miles in a week, performing longer and harder workouts, and doing extra small workouts before and after school. When things do not go my way, I keep moving forward with my effort. If anyone thinks I’m a try-hard, I’ll say that I have my own goals and I plan to get there, so I’m going to continue because it works.
