But I hate how competitive our school is. Don’t take this the wrong way, because I think good competition can be so beneficial and motivating and even beautiful, but most students are just territorial and power hungry. Nothing is yours, don’t try to stop people from doing things that they may have an interest in or may be passionate about, but your unawareness and even jealousy is just hindering that. I probably seem, and probably am, a total hypocrite since people obnoxiously label me as the queen of competitiveness but I think I’ve learned if anyone, a friend, a student wants to do something there is no need to be bitter. Your individuality is still going to be intact, because at the end it’s what you make of it and not who you try to exclude or what you try to claim. Be in a competition with yourself, not others. End rant.
