Taking the L

“Why is she so smart? I hate her.”

“I did so bad. I got a 97.”
“Can you not?”

“Guys…what did you get on that test? I definitely took an L on that one.”

Sound familiar?

No one is perfect. Everyone makes mistakes. So why do so many of us feel the need to compete? And why do we always feel like when we compare ourselves to others, we never measure up.

Taking the L is our series on all things failure. We want to deconstruct the myth of perfection that pervades the halls of South. Each short video is someone’s story about a time they took an L.
