I'm having serious writing anxiety and I'll admit I am blogging to warm up my writing brain cells. I would love to blog more but I'm too busy bitching on Twitter, and worrying about how I'm going to finish this gigantor project called a dissertation. Here's my sports analogy. I need to be competitive at the international level in order to feel comfortable taking part in the tiny tots category. For better or worse, I'm not the type who puts work out there and thinks it's awesome when everyone else thinks it's a piece of shit on a page. Not that I don't pity those people. I'm embarrassed for those overconfident pricks. Those who have so much confidence but no content...sad, but sometimes pretending gets you a long way. But I'm not a pretender.

i totally totally relate to your international/tiny tots analogy. i think that is probably true of a lot of us in academia.
