Imposter Syndrome

I have been humming and haa-ing for years now about a return to education – I have been accepted on Bachelor Of Laws, Masters Of Arts, BA Degrees and National Diplomas – but I have not stuck them out…

Why the flackiness?

Because I am already achieving. I am a middle weight designer specialising in UX and the subjects for the degrees I would study keep me hungry for knowledge. They make me a better designer.

I would just be getting a new certificate for old thinking. I would not be learning anything new if I was to go back to uni.

The certificates would just be there to stop my imposter syndrome and not to open up any new avenues. I would never be rid of my imposter syndrome, even with the certificates. And, I hope I never do get rid of my imposter syndrome.

It keeps me keen. It keeps me hungry.
