It is only when we try something knew that we learn about ourselves. It may feel uncomfortable, but trying new things are essential to becoming more knowledgeable. When we feel uncomfortable, when the task seems unconquerable, trying something new will always result positively. At no other point in my eighth grade career at Fenn was this more obvious to me than when I completed my group song. Going into the project I was pessimistic of my ability to write song lyrics, create the sound, and compose it in a recording. I did not have self-doubt in my abilities because I knew I would fail; exactly the opposite. I had the doubt because I had never tried before.
After completing the project (although not a masterpiece) I was proud that I had put in all of my effort. In the end, it didn't matter that my group's song was not the best. It didn't matter that it wasn't well syllabically structured, and it didn't matter that the song did not always rhyme. It only mattered that I had tried my best at something new.
