Why do I feel the need to apologise?

83% for a Philosophy test, and 100% for an InfoSys test on Excel. And I'm embarassed by it. For some inexplicable reason, I'm ashamed to be getting high(ish) marks. Why can't I just be proud of what I've achieved?

Maybe it's because I'm the obnoxious, noisy guy in the class? The one who's answering the questions when nobody else wants to speak, and who's not yet managed to make it through an IS lecture without contributing something to expand upon the material being covered by the lecturer.
Or maybe it's a hang over from high school, when being a stand-out intellect was a source of ridicule, so self-depreciation was a protective mechanism?
Either way, it's not really in keeping with my cocky, arrogant reputation. It has to stop. I shall try harder :P

Shocking as it may be, I think, and sometimes those thoughts are almost worthy of public contemplation. So, here are those some thoughts, with no guarantees as to their validity, worth, or utility to the cosmos. All thoughts are my own, representing only my thoughts, opinions and positions, unless explicitly otherwise stated. This blog is not an official or unofficial outlet for any company or government body, or for person other than myself.
