Way too much pressure.
I'm a freshman and I can't deal with all the pressure anymore.
I know that my parents love me and they care strongly about what I will become in the future. They want me to succeed in life and their only way for me to achieve that is getting perfect GPA scores, having lots of leadership roles and being the best at everything. They have high standards for me and my sister. Since my sister is the "perfect" girl with the top GPA scores and lots of awards, they have no problem with her the problem is me.
To let you have an idea of how strict my mother is, she never lets me have a facebook account and if she catches me doing anything else on the computer other than homework or on educational sites, she starts yelling and bringing up our family's financial problems and making big assumptions that I am a computer addict which I am sure I'm not. Just today I was on youtube watching videos and I ended up crying after she "told me off" when she caught me. I don't know why I'm even using the word "caught".
I transferred into a new school. I used to be the vice president and had perfect scores in my old school. Over here they have a whole new system and I am having a hard time adopting to it. When my mother brings up how great I was before and how awful I am now, I really feel bad about myself. I know that she's doing everything because she cares and she wishes I go to a good university with an awesome life but I really can't stand all the pressure anymore.
