We're going through big changes at my job, which are in and of themselves going to warrant a completely separate post. Though it is insanely early in the process, I can feel myself growing and I can feel myself growing already because I an extremely uncomfortable and for the first time in a few months, … Continue reading When you feel like an imposter
Yesterday was filled with everyone on my timeline commenting on how their 2017 went and how 2018 is definitely going to be their year. I recall reading these at the end of 2016.
