Amongst the many times I’ve failed at something, failing ZOO101 in my year one stuck with me more because not only was my intelligence questioned but my tenacity too. Being a model-child with academic excellence, I was shocked when I failed a course in my first semester in the university.

    Wednesday Wisdom

    Muse: Yours Truly, ME Holding ourselves to high standards comes naturally to us as human, we usually just grow up to have expectations from ourselves and if we fail to meet up with them, we get frustrated. I know I have done this before, and, at the risk of appearing like a defeatist, I know I will do it at some point again (and trust me, I won’t let go without a fight but at the same time I know when to take a bow if it starts to drain me).
