I have to get something off of my chest. I really wanted valedictorian but guess what my best friend got it. Like no matter how hard I tried I didn't get it she did. I've been crying for 4 days straight about it. I don't want to walk out on her speech but i'm afraid i may just start crying right there. I'm happy for her really i am but i have wanted it since the beginning of the school year. I just wanted to see my parents' look on their face when i would be up there to say my speech. What can i say i'm never good enough.
Can't they be happy you passed?
If your parents make you feel that bad over something as silly as valedictorian then... that's pretty messed up. People who get valedictorian really don't get anything big. I got it, I'm going to a college 3 states away soon, and I'm still going to be in debt. Valedictorian doesn't really help with anything, and yeah, my parents had that look, but you know, it really didn't matter to them, they were just happy that I passed and got into college because they knew that's what I wanted. : }
"I didn't get the social recognition I deserved, boo hoo somebody call the waaaambulance because I've got a case of the whines!"
So what, you're not first place? Deal with it. Neither was I. I still rock.
There's some things you're good at, and some things you suck at, and there's always people generally better and smarter and more hard-working than you are. That's not a bad thing. Accept it, and continue to give shit your best shot.
You don't deserve it with an attitude like that.
WHAT DOES YOUR SCANNER SAY ABOUT HIS POWER LEVEL
Be glad that you could compete.
I had a aclassmate who has an IQ of 150 and more easily.
This happened to me too, but the #1 in our school was a study all the time loser whereas I studied for perhaps 1 hour per subject max. I didn't feel so bad about it, and I got the science award anyway.
