I'm not sure what the best term for it would be... Driven. Type-A. Focused (sometimes to a fault). I'm not good at decision making, but once I do make up my mind, it becomes my sole
In some ways, it pays off. College is a perfect example. I had one episode right after my first anatomy and physiology test where I wanted to quit (even though I got an A on the test). I was overwhelmed and terrified. But that was the only time I really thought about giving up. I've questioned my sanity...a lot. But I'm more determined than ever that I want this. I can't wait to walk across that stage and get my degree.
In other ways, its really, really bad. Like when people talk to me and I walk right by, never hearing them, because my mind is a million miles a way. Or when I'm pulling straight A's in college, but I would die a thousand deaths from humilation if anyone saw the way my house looks during finals week.
For better or for worse, though, that's me...
