I’m scared of contentment

I love a good challenge.

Even more, if you don’t think I can do it, I’ll get a sick gleam in my eye that dares you to think so little of me and my motto becomes, “Watch me”.

I love this fire in me.

This drive to rise above that which others deem inappropriate or out-of-my-league.
