LIFE EXPERIENCE

What are 5 useless facts about you?

  1. I hate some cyber languages.
  2. I don’t have most social media accounts

Unlike most teenagers I don’t use Snapchat, Instagram, tiktok and Twitter. I don’t have anything against these apps i just prefer to spend my time away from my phone and that resulted in too many issues with “social norms” and “girl code”. Yes, I apparently have broken “girl code” by liking a Beyoncé post before opening a friends Snapchat. True story my old friends had boycotted me and told me I was a terrible person because a few times where I opened Instagram and viewed content that wasn’t related to them before responding to a single Snapchat….. Ya so after that and many other occasions where teenagers have been crazy and watched my snap score and follow count just to make sure I was prioritizing them I deleted social media. 2 years later that was the best decision I ever made.

3. I enjoy tennis

Although I do suck at tennis, I try and bike to my local courts and practice as much as possible. It’s been a really great way for me to escape my thoughts.

4. I believe I suffer from imposter syndrome

I am not a licensed medical professional nor visited a licensed medical professional to be examined and diagnosed so while I do not officially have imposter syndrome I strongly feel that I do. My life has changed drastically in the past year, for the first time I became a straight A student and have achieved a lot yet because for so long I wasn’t ambitious I do not feel I deserve it.

5. I am not very smart

To me I surprised by the amount of people at my school who think I am smart. Almost everyday a handful of people ask me for help with math and other subjects and genuinely believe I am smart. I read a lot and the more I read the more I realize how little I know. I ranked top 2% of my math class and people assumed that I didn’t study and put in zero effort which is the opposite. I spent over 150 hours studying for finals while I admit this was overkill and I probably would of been fine with minimal studying I hate when people treat me like a genius I often fear one day everyone will find out that I really am not as smart as they believe.
