I sent him a link to my brief on the Military Speechwriting Training we held last month. He said that from appearances, I look "pretty competent and successful." I told him that was the look I was going for. He replied:
fake it till ya make it.
Then keep on faking it till you die. Because since you have been faking it the whole time you really never figured out what the hell you are doing and if you let up the charade for even a second the whole world will know you are a fraud and a phony and you will die alone, ridiculed and penniless. So for CHRIST SAKE KEEP FAKING IT AND DON'T GET CAUGHT!!!!!! AAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!
sorry was kind of an inner monologue that got away from me.
