Daily Chronicles: day…whatever-the-f*ck-it-now-is

Random thoughts:

  • NEVER enough coffee in my veins on a Monday morning…
  • Just watched Into the Badlands yesterday…this is a promising show: martial art moves, bad-ass characters, and a damn smoking hot redhead kicking all their butt and being too clever? OF COURSE I’m hooked 😛
  • So many people are having a hard time around me this year. THIS is a good reminder to keep in mind.

From my Feedly: Of impostor syndrome and running in circles (part 1)

If there is ONE subject that touches me a lot in my professional domain, it’s the infamous Imposter Syndrome. Even after 17+ years working as a web professional, I still have that impression of feeling inadequate, that I will be debunked, my credibility “attacked” for not knowing everything…and it’s STUPID! It’s a fucking useless and stupid feeling, an anxious thought that just doesn’t want to leave you alone. No amount of work you do through the years can totally erased all these dark thoughts and feelings you feel most of your time, and in my case, having been the victim of bullying throughout most of high school did NOT help at all with my self-esteem and self-confidence (fuck you all, by the way, you worthless bullies from High School! You are soooooooooooooooooo not worthed all the post-years of trauma, psychological stress and therapy sessions you brought on your victims with all your vile words and physical attacks).

So go read this article from Christian Heilmann: as you will read, even long-time professionals can feel that syndrome. We are not alone!

Thoughts interrupted…

When you feel you just can’t write anything anymore on your own personal space, I guess it’s time to just close it.

Or just fuck the people who will judge your unconventional mind and way of life, and continue writing. Fuck the consequences and all…

Where did my summer go? o.O

Soooooooooooo. It’s almost the end of August, and no update from my part here. What a busy summer it had been!

Started a new job in June, and got another episode of zona in the last two weeks (this one pretty painful, a first).

Still running like a chicken without a head around, running after my time and the daughter.

On the social life front, thought, it’s been pretty quiet: a couple of nights out with friends, but since I started my new job, I was pretty much too tired to go out a lot. It was mostly a “cocooning” summer at home.

And now, what’s next this fall for me? A first: no university, no back-to-school fever for me! I know, some of my friends have bets going on, on when I’ll be back in school (seems like I can’t stop loving school), but seriously, I think I’m done for at least 5 years: just enough time for the “study itch” becomes too intense for me 😛

Otherwise, I’ll also be starting a new personal project, related to my field of work. More info on that later this fall 😀
