I don't think so. I'm a very competitive woman and tend to do better at things when I'm competing. Once a long time ago, I was in a geometry class and some guy told me girls aren't as good at math as guys. I told him to bring it on. I got a 95% in the class. But he got 97%. Still the two highest grades though! So I was happy.

I do because I hate to lose. I am a big bby and I will cry no matter how small the competition. It makes me even more to know that I was better then the winner. I have had it happeb to me sevral times and I dont mean to make it a racial issue but it was in fact because I was african - american.

But life's not about just winning. If you have the talent you got to participate. Whether you win or loose.

I don't. If I win, I win. If I don't, at least I can say I tried rather than sitting here saying I bet I could have done better than that. You never learn anything by sitting on your behind.
