Tired of people telling me to rest on my laurels... Watch

    ...There's nobody awake at this hour so I'm just going to say it.

    I'm tired of people telling me that I shouldn't try to fight too hard, or sit back and accept things. The other day I told my cousin I wanted to get a first on my dissertation, he said "you'll get what you get." I felt so angry, I wish I had said something. My family may have got by being happy being just accepting things as is, but I don't. If I don't achieve something I set out to, I work harder next time. I think about what went wrong and how can improve. I am constantly trying to better and improve myself and I'm sick of people trampling all over it with their negativity.
