Imposter syndrome is the belief that because you are capable of the virtue of doubt, you're somehow less prepared for the challenges of life than the many hubristic arseholes who lack the sense to recognize any consequences of their own poor judgment.

The world doesn't need more overconfidence. It needs more folk comfortable with doubt, of themselves, of their practices and institutions. Questioning our ability or preparedness to do a thing is not the same as being unable to do that thing.

Y'all I want Xmas to hurry up because MR ROBOT FINAL SEASON IS THE REASON 4 THE SEASON

Maybe what I like about programming is the ability to solve a problem when I feel like there are so many other problems internal and external to my life that I don’t have the ability to solve. Maybe this is the reason why when I can’t solve a programming problem it bothers me so much.
