Yeah my parents have high expectations with me...no grade lower than 90...do this, do that...The hateful part is that its just for me, not my siblings I dont know if its because I'm a girl and they say girls care more about school or because I'm the eldest or simply because they want too...

but you know, it helps so I am trying lo love it. It makes me want to live up to their expectations and make them proud at the same time show them that I can do it...I was jumping around school last report card day when my lowest was 92 for biology so relax, you can do what they expect of you

I believe they are the bane of every person's existence. It really creates an intellectual and emotional havoc resulting to depressions that eventually leads to physical deterioration. However on the positive side it serves as a push to achieve and to prove something. It serves as a measurement on how tough a person can be.

It's wrong to rely on someone else's expectations as your own goals.
In case if something happens to people in question, you're screwed.

Live life to your own expactations. It's your life! I'm gonna feel sorry for you when you're at the end of your life and you realize you hated your life cause you couldn't life your live the way you wanted.


I always did what I wanted myself, not that it was that smart always but at least I can say that my life contained 95% of fun. The 5% are unpleasant things that I had in my life cause I was caught doing things I shouldn't have done. Don't be a criminal but don't be a saint either. My advice for a youngster!

What he said. But as an added addendum, you shouldn't try to underachieve, either.

True, but I find it a bit controversial seeing it comes from a lazy peon.

Reminds me of my ROC, TFT days and my far seer / rexxar icon ;). And how I miss wow to.

Hey, hey. I may be lazy, but I'm known to spit out a few gems every now and then.
