I don’t know if you’ve already guessed this about me, but I’m one of those annoying overachievers. A bachelor’s degree wasn’t enough; I had to go to law school. And just doing the required classes in law school wasn’t enough; I had to join a law review too.
But this obnoxious habit doesn’t just apply to school. Apparently I’m an overachieving dresser too. Even when I try to underachieve, I can’t. Like the other day I was getting ready for work and I was feeling really lazy. I put on these yellow jeans and a t-shirt, and I put my un-brushed wet hair in a top knot. I was about to step into a pair of comfy flats, and then I stopped myself.
I don’t want to go to work with wet hair. I’ll dry it. In fact, maybe I’ll even curl it. Just for fun. And maybe this t-shirt is a little too casual for the office. I’ll wear something with a little embellishment. And maybe instead of flats, I’ll wear…the biggest freaking shoes I have. To match the big hair. Wait…What just happened?
And that is the story of how I failed at underachieving.
