Imposter Syndrome: I was hired even though I felt unqualified. I now realized the people that hired me thought I was senior at my previous job when I wasn’t... I never lied about anything during my interview and talked about my duties. I only realized this after I got hired and the team introduced me saying all these fabulous “senior” things that I did - which is true (more like acting senior duties) 😅 what do i do!! Do I tell them I wasn’t a senior? I’m not behind on my work or anything

Quick reminder to remember custodial workers when making gift lists. Been a hard year for all of us, but I know the lady who cares for me and my room has had to go above and beyond the call of duty.
