I was sitting in a three hour long class today about social media and I didn't look at my phone ONCE.
I was SOO interested in everything that was being said.
I mean...who does that?!
So obviously. I love it.
But I started taking this other class annnndddd I hate it. So much. It's so hard and makes me feel like a moron and that I'm a super crappy writer and I can't make jokes and...well you get the picture.
However, I was walking home from class tonight and I was thinking (and jamming to Enrique Inglesias) and I thought "Why does this class make me feel this way? Because really, I'm a DANG GOOD writer!"
And I had an epiphany of sorts..."I'm the only one holding myself back."
Yeah, the teacher swears a lot and it makes cringe.
Yeah, it sucks when I don't know the answer to a question I should clearly know the answer to.
Yeah, it blows when I find myself completely clueless about how to edit audio recordings.
But you know what?
I'm the only one that has the power to make myself feel inadequate.
No situation or job or conversation has the power to do that except me.
So the next time my teacher swears, I'm gonna swear right back and tell him that DANG IT! I AM A GOOD WRITER.
Okay...I won't swear because let's be honest, I'd probably start crying if I did. But it's the thought that counts...:)
