I once got 103% in a test.
It was in third form Latin.
A project assigned over the Easter Holidays on Roman Gods made up 15% of the total mark and I got 18/15 for that because - remembering it now - the Latin teacher himself may not even heard of the Greek Gods that were excavated from the depths of our local library to go into that double scrapbook project.
After that, 100% felt like a sort-of failure.
Good, but not, like, really good.
I was and am, a complete perfectionist.
In some ways, it has served me really well.
I like to produce very high quality work.
I like to decorate my house with things that are ‘just right’ and take time to find exactly what it is I’m looking for.
In other ways it has not. ‘Do it right or don’t do it at all.’
‘Go big or go home.’ These are maxims that really speak to me.
And they are lies.
