If you think everyone has such an organised life, and you feel so lost

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/07/09

Deelnemer in workshop: het lijkt wel alsof iedereen gewoon precies weet waar die mee bezig is en ik doe maar wat.

Ik aan andere deelnemers: wie van jullie klooit ook gewoon maar wat aan???

Iedereen (including me):

It does not translate well into English (though good translations are welcome), but comes down to this:

Workshop participant: it feels like everybody knows what they are doing, and I just try and try and try.

Me to all participants: who is doing trial-and-error?

Everybody (including me): raises hand.

Which basically is my life in one sentence.

I’m autodidact. I have virtually taught myself most things I know to date by just doing them and trying to solve the problems that came on my path, reaching out to the interwebs (and previously: books, magazines, mailing lists, word of mouth) whenever got really stuck.
