the grouse of the naturalised sidler

Was just reading some blog archives – I really was cocky in upper sec, huh? I don’t know if it’s a good or bad thing that I lost all that bravado from a few years back, trading that in for a bit of humility mingled with a resigned and knowing appreciation of mediocrity. Is that good? I don’t think there’s any real difference, except that when you’re proud you don’t see your flaws; when you’re down you see them even when they are not there.
