Portfolio of Hope

I’m always seeking the ‘extremes’

of everything.

If I’m going on holiday,

I want to go to the hottest place.

If I’m going for a walk,

I want to climb the steepest hill/

walk the longest route.

Heck, even if I’m only looking to buy a sandwich,

I want to buy the ‘nicest’ one.

So perfectionistic,





about, literally, everything,


it’s all in an attempt to escape

from the mundaneness of everyday life/

it’s all to push myself

to feel

‘good enough’,

or even, to just feel



It’s all a, very annoying, character trait


and one that, try as I might, I cannot get rid of…
