To Err is Human

There is a famous saying that says " To err is human. " This simply means that everyone has flaws, they're what make us human. Benjamin Franklin, however, believed that people could achieve moral perfection. This could be done by listing all of your immoral flaws, and trying to perfect them one by one. I tried this, and I came up with several flaws that I would like to correct. Not trying hard enough at school, being mean to my parents, making fun of people, being argumentative, and my road rage are just some of the ones I came up with. The first flaw I listed is one that needs to be corrected very soon. Not trying very hard at school has been a very big problem for me lately. I think that my hectic schedules of work and extra curricular activities plays a large part in this. I always seem to do just well enough to get A's and B's. I never study for tests, and when I do my homework, I usually fly through it as fast as I can. I think that setting out more time to study and do my homework correctly would be a good start at correcting this flaw of mine. I could also try to stop making fun of people all of the time. I don't do this on purpose, it's just that I like to be the class clown and crack jokes a lot. Unfortunately, several people have pointed out that when I make these (in my mind harmless) little jokes, I often hurt people's feelings. I should stop and think before I speak , because words can never be taken back. One of the most dangerous flaws I appear to have is a severe case of road rage. I've always known that I've had a quick fuse as far as tempers go, but I have always felt that I have learned to keep it in check. On the road however, I become " that idiot "; You know, that guy that is always cutting people off and screaming out the window like a maniac. Many of my friends refuse to ride with me because of this. If I don't learn to calm down, my self or someone else may get serious...
