Fact: I’m hyper competitive and this propels me to excel at things like school and any job I come across, but I have to harness it in a way that isn’t just beneficial to me but also helps others (tutoring, aiding coworkers in getting promoted etc). If not, I become a huge asshole that just steam rolls people.

I had a really shitty day at work, but I came home to a super sweet message from someone who follows FY!QM about how they appreciate it and whatever and now I’m all feelings-y and just, yeah.

Like, sometimes it’s really nice to get a reminder that people actually care about the stuff I write, because yeah, I do it for myself because I enjoy it, but it’s really nice knowing other people enjoy it too. I don’t get a lot of positive reinforcement for the stuff that I like doing, so when I do, it’s a really nice wake-up kick to the chest to keep doing it.
