I guess I'm a punctured tire. Hasn't been pumped for a long time, and now you want to pump it it just refuses to inflate.
A lot has to do with my choice of JC. Not saying my JC is a bad college, in fact a few of my JC classmates are now on dean's list. Just that... coming from a branded secondary school there was a great drop in pressure at junior college. I'm smart, but being smartass is useless anything after Sec 2, afterwhich it is all hard work that matters. Obviously the 15 minutes walk from home was the reason why I chose my JC. Had I choosen better-ranking JC I guess I would be good and kicking ass now.
To maintain is the hardest part. Well well, I wish I was a self-inflatable lifevest.
