I'm Just Here For The T-Shirt

Shawn Oden

I've been a professional geek for over 20 years, but I still feel like I'm out of my zone. Technology moves so fast. There are so many things to know. Everyone is so much smarter than me. I don't know what I'm doing, and it's just a matter of time before someone finds me out. Or something like that. Imposter Syndrome is a problem. But it can be dealt with.

What I learned about Mental Health from my computer and its network.

Dan Card

With all the conversations about self care, self help, counseling, higher powers, identity, defining ourselves, being defined, alone time, group time, isolation, introversion extroversion, no-traversions and so on, I found myself more and more thinking that it was just as easy to get lost and stressed by all the things you “should” be doing as it was to get lost in the “life stuff” that was causing issues in the first place.
