Rushing fool

When I apply for different types of job opportunities I’m usually quite confident about my abilities. Sometimes, though, I panic.

This is what goes through my mind: I haven’t done ANYTHING. What have I done?! NOTHING. NOTHINGTNOTHINGNOTHINGNOTHINGNOTHING.

Now, a quick scan of my resume would let you know my mind is being a lying jerk to me when this happens, but I’ll continue to ignore that fact and badger myself.

It’s been a year since you’ve graduated. You’re copping out, man. Why aren’t you traveling the world writing? WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH YOUR LIFE?! WHERE IS THE DAMN NOVEL YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO HAVE PUBLISHED?!


There’s no need to rush life and fast-forward. No need to compare yourself to others. No need to worry about not being where you think you should be.

So, I’m going to be happy with the curriculum vitae I’ve just written. I’m going to be content with where I’m at and do what I can to keep growing…

Imma grow like this flower!

I am so stoked about continuing to learn, which is why I’m writing a CV for a few internship opportunities. And I only just figured out what a CV is, but I think mine looks pretty decent now that I’ve supplied my brain with enough oxygen and stopped tweaking.

Here’s to not rushing!
