In four years of college I was in a same class with Bob R. and Bob B. They were both A students.
Bob B would sit in class and absorb the material while most of us were scrambling to write down notes as quickly as possible. Bob R would take copious notes and study 2 to 3 hours a night.
I was B- student. I had neither of their giftsl: Mental capabilites for instant understanding and retention for Bob B - not me. And a work ethic for Bob R that was beyond me . I was quite happy where I was Cs and Bs and an occasional A in my major, English Literature. I enjoyed college. I graduated with a 2.76 average. Both Bob's hovered just below a 4.00.
If you are doing your best , then you are right where you are supposed to be. Don't compare. It is meaningless. You are who you are. It is what it is. Be the best person, student and Frostppitch you can be. When you don't understand - ASK. There are usually ten or more others in the class who don't understand but. Pride kicks in and they wait until later to ask a friend. There is absolutely nothing wrong with saying I don't understand. You learn by asking. There are things that convince you not to ask: Embarassment, fear, ego, pride and more. Don't interrupt your learning cycle because of these. You are you. Be the best you, you can be.
