I thought my fringe would stop looking ridiculous after I'd slept on it.
rather than confident sometimes and just bluffing the rest
but my dad was so convincing. Just the fact that I always figured I'd 'feel' like a grown-up.
everyone else is bluffing as well!
What clinched it for me was my first Training/Presentation Skills course when we were told that only 12% of what you say is taken in by your audience, to which my response was: - so 88% of what I say can be complete bollocks..?? I'm in!
not get worse :/
I thought my bad skin was just a teenage thing but its still here. Damn.
occasionally get acne cysts? Fuck this :(
where abouts? if it tends to be along / near your jawline then (almost) definitely hormonal
Grr, damn hormones.
Now a grown up, still no clue.
at least I've only 5 more working days this month.
Then 20 odd the next month
and the next
and the next
until it all spills over in the future. But that's for a future you to worry about. Haha, screw THEM.
Don't fret over it
this is the last one left standing
I have ALL BUT LEFT the Melvins board.
what i actually have is passable but just barely
then it went grey at 26 :o(
Looked AWESOME for a while. Shaved and hated my babyface instantly. Grew it back, but went away... yeah... blah. There's definitely a tipping point between MANLY FACE HAIR and GREY OLD FART BEARDY SCRUFF. Not sure how to manage one :(
And know how to talk to boys.
Post a picture and we can all tell you so.
*HIGH FIVES OTHER MEN*
This shit is exhausting sometimes
I was going to start this joke account.
AND you've done it wrong! It's 2 lovelys
I am a LOT more confident in some ways. I care less about being cool or whatever.
But I still get anxious about work meetings and meeting new work people and having people sit at my desk and look at my face whilst I think about how weird it would be for a man in his 30s to go red.
Fucking stupid brain screwing me over.
if it's rarely then it's obvious you're embarrassed, if it's all the time then surely people are like yeah he just goes red all the time, got nothing to do with embarrassment
It's only when I think "imagine if I went red now, that would be awful".
It's like my brain is permanently trying to screw me over. Not allowing me to live my life.
This is basically Imposter Syndrome. But I get it bad. It's not just with work either.
But everyone has it to a degree. Unless they're a cocky twat.
when that goes, it's harder. That's what I found.
apart from that, I got nothin'.
although there is still plenty of time for expectations to go awry. I didn't really have many initially, beyond 'deal with social and psychological issues, k?'.
god it's SO hard being a feminist on here.
I think I've stopped feeling insecure about my hair colour and that's slowly extending to my appearance generally. Like, today I wore no make up to work and met new people and had a meeting with a hot person. I just realised ive been logged in as Alan shearer for the past 2 days.
At some very deep level, I can feel myself becoming more confident than I ever thought I would.
So that's yet ANOTHER thing you and ho_fo have in common...
I'm not sure he'll be happy with that.
(h8 u, nose)
have my life sorted out
(h8 u, self employment/parent's house)
(h8 u, tangled mess)
generally, i'm feeling slowly better about everything.
and acting like a fucking 5 yr old when pissed off.
I'm 28, earn more than any point in my life, yet I have to live like a borderline peasant
I guess mine's the confidence thing, although in saying that I'm doing things this year that I never would have the last. I guess you just need to throw yourself into the deep-end and see what happens. Backing out and missing potential opportunities is the worst feeling in the world. Spent too long regretting to want to risk that again.
and not like a perpetual teenager terrified of the "real" world and jobs and responsibility and going to bed at 10.30 and such. Whenever I'm doing "real" adult things (like meetings and networking and spreadsheets and commuting during rush hour) I feel like some sort of fraud.
