So,a while ago at school,
There was a competition for the whole grade 6 batch.
There were 3 competitors in one section.(10 sections at the 6th grade batch.)
One competitor in our class was absent.
And,they asked me to fill in for him at the last minute.
I accepted the offer.
----40 mins have passed since the start of the competition----
We came in 4th place because I forgot the questions #15 and #19.
The questions were:
-What creature has a head of a horse,and a body of a fish?:hippocampi
-Who are the worst looking offspring of gaia?
I felt like I dishonored my class...I never felt so Ashamed in my life....
Yeah.I wanna know how you guys feel when you lose?

Losing is part of our life. As the saying goes 'Failure is the key to success', even if u fail this time, u can learn from ur mistakes and dun repeat them again. My parents always tell me that, as long as u have tried ur best, whatever the outcome is, no on would blame you. If u have not put in any effort, scoring bad results is ur own fault. So, as long as u think u have tried ur best, it's ok. No one would blame u... Just learn from your mistakes and tell urself that u can do better next time.
Dun worry too much about this. It's a part of ur life. There are always UP's and DOWN's in life. Take it as this is a 'DOWN'.
Hope for the best, Prepare for the worst. Good luck! :3

If you don't understand Chinese, it simply means failure is the mother (root) of success.
A failure means nothing.
It is a learning experience that counts.
Learn from your failures.
Pick yourself up.
