I can’t believe it’s been a month already since graduation. Life has been good; found an apartment; made a couple new friends; work has been aiiite. I still feel like a noob even though it’s already my 3rd full week in. A new kid joined the team last week. I can tell already he’s super legit and smart. I’m really happy he joined because I really enjoy talking to him more than anyone else in the office, but at the same time I am a little anxious because I feel like he’s already better than me at everything.
If someone were to ask me whether I’d want to be #1 at a shitty school, or average/ below average in a really great school; I’d pick the latter and hope that I’d be able to learn from those around me. Learning from smart people takes a lot of humility though. I just want to be praised and told that I’m wonderful, but I guess that doesn’t really lead to self improvement.. I shall work extra harder and be the very best (that no one ever was #pokemon). I hope that I will not grow weary or envious in the process.
