Try, dammit!

I recently realized that there’s a ton of stuff that I am actually not that good at, but I look like I am cause I try pretty hard. For example, in PE we’re playing basketball, and for the life of me, I cannot shoot. However, I can match speeds with anyone and I just keep throwing the ball at the hoop. Eventually I end up making a 3 pointer without touching the rim. I was as shocked as anyone. Also, I can’t draw for shit, but I trace and retrace until I get a half-decent picture. Now people think I can draw.

There’s a lesson in all this. I am nothing really special. You can do this too. All you have to do is put a little effort in.
