It is not necessary to demonstrate how smart you are. It’s annoying. School is not a quiz show where you have to beat your opponent to the buzzer. Do you have classmates who raise their hands even before the teacher is finished asking the question? The ones who sit on the edge of their seats, fronting at the mouth to show off, and sucking up to the teacher? Don’t be like that. A truly smart person is secure in the knowledge that she IS smart; she doesn’t need other people to confirm it.
When I grow grow up, one of the things I want is to write like Jessica Zafra(or at least be half as good). :]
