so it’s the night before classes start at Yale and… it’s also time for release of results for the past semester. and i swear, i was so confident this time bc i’ve been performing well and working hard but.. i guess i just bombed finals. my cap fell by like 0.02 which doesn’t seem like a lot but.. it just means that i am / have been approaching my stagnation point of a b+ and
i just dont want to think thats the best i can do. like yeah sure numbers dont matter and your grades shouldnt define you but it just really feels like absolute shit when you work ur ass off for 3 mods and slack on 1 but u end up having similar grades for them all anyway
and i just dont know how to trust myself like idk if working hard even helps or works at this point and i am so, so tired i just

i just never wanted to be a disappointment and increasingly it feels like that’s all i’ll ever be. i hope i can look back on this post/moment in a sem, in a year, and feel like it was my wake up moment where i learned how to be better how to do better but honestly i dont know how to get there and i am scared.
here’s to a better junior year? it better improve from here la or else i’m fucking screwed for senior yr l o l kill me
