    Imposter Syndrome.

    I think this is something I've struggled with for years, though I didn't realize how many others felt this way too. I tend to always feel like I'm behind the curve. I think it's an issue with the environment (everyone has to be an expert at all times on everything) and my self esteem, or possibly it goes back to the fact that I never went to college and maybe I feel like I'm missing out on something? Who knows.

    At this point I have a long list of books and tools (framer, Form, Origami, Pixate) I need to learn, a portfolio I need to scrap and redo, and I'd like to brush up on my HTML/CSS/JS.

    When you feel inadequate, it's crippling to feel like you need to learn and know everything just to feel like you're enough.
