I really kinda thought I'd be a better person by now :(.

You know where you hope this train will take you, but you don't know for sure.

I'm extremely interested in the field of clinical psychology and eventually becoming some kind of therapist. Where do I go from here? [more inside]

So I'm an impostor.

I've written the standard textbook about a topic. I'm teaching a regular class at a college (in summer) and at a research university (winter term), as well as some summer school courses. Instructor of record, giving exams, all those things. I'm rather good at it, or so I think - at least for being hired as a so-called outside expert. Yet I'm incredibly anxious about this and feeling like an impostor. One of the reasons? Well, nobody knows, but when I'm not a lecturer, I'm still a freaking undergrad who is failing most of her classes. [more inside]
