I think i'm an overachiever
cause even if I got the high average in one class
instead of being happy I just feel a weird sense of dissapointment
because it could have been better

People expect a certain amount of professionalism from overachievers or 'OA's' as we call them in our school. After a while, their work doesnt seem that special anymore because its the same old thing over and over again and you expect that from them so there's no surprise.

As for the underachievers or 'the rest of us' as we call them in our school, its kind of sad because no one expect anything from them. So its alright to slack. But when they do something that is not expected of them everyone is like "woah"

I'm constantly accused of being an overachiever. I don't think I am.

I really don't try; I'm just naturally amazing

I don't think there are "overachievers"
I think some people just set their goals way lower.

People think I'm an overachiever but often I feel like I'm underachieving.

I love that perspective.

Whenever I see someone not really doing anything with their life, they become my motivation to keep going and achieve.

Blehh. Tried to be one, though quit after a year, and that was first grade.

I prefer a laid back life, so I just decided on passing grades. As long as I pass, I could care less what my grades was.

Heh, we're kind of similar.

I'm really not overly concerned about my grades as to how I deserved it. I'd rather get a 78% in a class and learn information, than a 103% with nothing really "new" in the subject.

Hello fellow, perfectionist :)

Yup. We can't be blamed for liking to things work properly.

I'm not an overachiever, but people think I am because of my grades.
I just find it easy to listen during class 'cos talking about the latest buzz isn't really worth staying after school for.
