I originally entered the Academy with hopes of winning, or at least coming in the top 24 on the final round. Seeing how, on round 3, I'm struggling to break gold, and there are people 6+ seconds ahead of me (How in the world do they DO that?!) I have decided to make the following my creed To those that won, I may be little more than an also-ran To myself, I will be an also-ran-my-best Despite what the people with the three-screen racing simulator setups may tell you, the Academy isn't really about winning or losing; it's about pushing yourself to your limits, and finding how to break through them. You're not in the top rankings for your country? It's alright - neither am I. What I am doing, though, is doing the best that I can, pushing myself harder, and not giving up without a fight.
