in reply to Am I worthy monk-status?

I frequently wonder whether I'm good enough for this place. I feel I'm moving way too slow. Combine that with my recent thoughts on The Monastery, namely that there are no new ideas to be shared (which I know to be bollocks; I'm just too stup^H^H^Hlow to think of them), and the lethargy seems to be in pretty full effect.

In this age of "first reply gets first XP," it feels quite frustrating to try getting words in edgewise. Nevertheless, I come back here and trudge along, conveniently ignoring the thorns in my side, whether they be saintly, fast burners, trolls, etc... I end up coming here and not caring about who's where on the totem pole. That's a Good Thing about a place full of regulars that I can readily respect.

I guess my whole point in rambling is that you're not the first (or the only) one to feel this way. I've stopped trying to make it to Best Nodes, and I've stopped trying to compare others' XP to mine, for it is an exercise in futility.
