Don't think I need to validate my skills with tons o praise, but received nice feedback from clients in the last two days
I didn't blow their minds, but they gave me some specific ideas on what they wanted, and it was nice to hear things like, "Exactly what I had in mind" and "really liked the design".
Unfortunately there are other parts of my professional life where the burden of proof is on me to prove my worth. It wasn't always that way, and it feels like I'm starting from scratch. But don't cry for me. I had boudin for lunch.
