    I've been doing a lot of thinking lately, and it seems like I am the only one out of my friends and the people I went to school with that doesn't have something they are good at or passionate about. Everyone I know has something they are really really good at like writing,art, playing musical instruments, learning languages, sports etc. I know that it takes hard work to be good at something, but they all seem to have had a natural aptitude that made them choose to work hard at it in the first place. Other people even know what they want to to with the rest of their lives now, like one has found a passion for teaching and is training for it, another is training to be a chef. Even my younger brother knows what he wants to do and is applying for courses. But I don't have anything that I'm good at, I was rubbish in school and got rubbish grades even though I worked really hard, I don't have any hobbies. Even my parents think I am boring, and a teacher once told me he'd never met someone who had such a lack of ability at everything. I'm beginning to wonder why I even carry on living, it just seems hopeless for me.
