    All failure for me. Hah, I guess I shouldn't look at it that way, I'm young yet. It just seems like most other peoples' successes are so much bigger than mine.

    I guess, by most standards of success, the fact that I managed to get from home-schooling all my life into college, and through my first class with an A, might be my biggest success. (and I'm from a dirt poor family, too).

    Or... My biggest success might be going from being diagnosed with social anxiety disorder to playing in a symphony in a couple of months.

    Take your pick.

    Failure:

    On-going failure. Never had a job, never had a relationship. It's my fault.

    Success: I had a small business when I was 4 years old, selling toys to my sister, buying them back and then selling them to her for more...

    Failure: Spelling.

    Success... well if you consider winning success then I've only ever won one competition. I'm usually second or near there.

    Failure, I'm usually second or near there.

    In fact my most favourite successes aren't a success in my eyes but when someone else says it's an amazing result. I'm not really prone to patting myself on the back but I'm a sucker for other's doing it
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    Achievement: I achieved one of the best GCSE Literature A* grades in the country. I wasn't even in the top class, and I had only read one novel. It was completely unexpected by everyone, especially me. I put it down to good music, an extraordinary teacher, and Harper Lee.

    Failure: Everything else. I think my mind expanded prematurely, and without the infrastructure to back it up. It was simultaneously the life and death of me.

    -How beautiful, this pale Endymion hour.
    -What are you talking about?
    -Endymion, my dear. A beautiful youth possessed by the moon.
    -Well, forget about him and get to bed.
    -Yes, my dear.

    Welcome to the club! (Except I wasn't in homeschool "all my life," but enough to note the correlation.)

    I can't decide if I think homeschooling is cause or effect of SAD. (What a crappy acronym.)

    Achievement: when I was 9 my english teacher entered our work into a poetry competition. I won, but to this day do not understand how. It is very rare that I enjoy reading or writing poetry.

    Failure: I am 22 and have had about 12 jobs since leaving school at 16, averaging 2 jobs per year and being fired from at least half of them. I never fit in anyhwere and can only tolerate doing something for a short time before feeling the need to move on.
    A criticism that can be brought against everything ought not to be brought against anything.

    Best grade in a senior level Shakespeare class, granted it was not at a top university, but it still made me feel good since I was in my thirties with four kids.

    Lots of fender benders due to inattentiveness, the most recent ruined a tire.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
    ~ John Rogers
