    Well, I thought you were being ironic. Shocked and dismayed that someone can actually be...honest. I see that the golden age of internet: lies, humblebrags and insults is a false promise. But seriously, do you really think that? Success is subjective, but I guess to your own standards you haven't done what you wanted, which I feel you for. So far, neither have I, though I have an almost stupid amount of giddy aspirations left for some reason. Also, self esteem? What is that, I don't know that thing.
    Seriously, I really do think that.

    I am proud of all the randomness and nothingness in life...

    It's just nothing as someone right said...

    I'm proud of getting into vet school, especially after all of the challenges of last year which seemed insurmountable at the time. I'm proud of my ability to look after myself at difficult times. Above all, I'm exceptionally fortunate to know many amazing people that have changed my life for the better. I am proud to call them my friends, and I'm incredibly proud of all of their achievements

    I'm proud of myself for constantly being ambitious and having big aims, I've never seen anything to be impossible and I'm proud of myself for having that perspective. Sometimes I feel like I could seriously change the world one day, and I don't see why a statement like that should ever be seen as 'out of reach', I always strive to think 'if they can do it, why can't I?' and I seem to have always kept that frame of mind. Just achieving my dreams I guess

    I am proud of: my pencil case, shaving my head for cancer (RIP Alan), and i suppose you could say i am proud of my ambitions to go to a prestigious drama school-(RADA or Guildhall)

    my background I'm from a country called Afghanistan. I hate when people put there ethnicities first, I take pride in being Afghan then being Uzbek but I think the countries name should change to ariana or khorasan
    I've been to Uzbekistan. Twice. A long time ago. Funny that. Everything I've ever done seems to have been a long time ago.

    I think I'd liked to have been a vet. Only myself to blame for not being one. I should have worked harder at school.

    I envy you. In a good way, not a malicious one.

    I have literally never done anything in my life that I can be justifiably proud of I don't think.

    So I've been trying to think of something I could do in the future that could make me proud.

    But what could it be? Giving money to charity is too easy so nope.

    I have a dodgy knee so can't run a marathon.

    I'm far too unpunctual so can't do charity work.

    I don't want children so that's out.


    Oh dear.


    Oh dear oh dear oh dear.

    Thank you It was hard work to get in (and continues to be!), but it will all be worth it in the end . What are you doing now? You know if you were serious about being a vet it's never too late. There are loads of graduates and mature students at my college. Not everyone takes the most obvious route to get in here

    I ended up a Chartered Surveyor. Not a complete career disaster but I'm sure I'd rather have ben a vet. I'm a bit long in the tooth now and have kids and a mortgage to pay so I've left it too late. Never mind. Maybe in my next life!

    After a somewhat difficult ride so far - battling with depression and a whole mash up of social anxiety, suicide attempts, trust issues, leaving an abusive home etc etc etc....

    I finally decided to go an have a full psychological examination (should have had this years ago). I have dyspraxia, Irlen syndrome and a mild form of Aspergers syndrome.

    It all kind of sucked when I found out but I am proud that I have gotten to a point in my life where I could gain enough trust and confidence in myself and others to go and have these tests done.

    Onwards and upwards!
