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
             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
             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
