How do I deal with being stupid?
I make stupid decisions, hesitate and over-think then go on to give little attention where attention is needed. I boast and cling to whatever petty pride I can. Not to mention academically and socially.
I don't necessarily hate myself, I just wish I wasn't so stupid.
I feel such a degree of stupidity is hereditary and no amount of self-reflection and checking myself will help.
So should I admit defeat, and if so, how do I carry on gracefully stupid?
I'm stupid too. I dunno if I could be smart if I tried because my education sucked and my parents didn't encourage me to read books or learn things growing up or anything like that, so I think my brain just grew up to be stupid. I have trouble with basic math problems, and don't know anything about how art or politics or science works.

I just want a really weird book.
