I have confidence (and I don't have shame)

I've been thinking about confidence again lately. This past week was pretty rough, as I've been stressed out from midterms and assignments. I tried to be confident going into my midterms, so I decided to sing before leaving to face the doom
of a calculus or physics midterm. I sang the song from the Sound of Music that Maria sings before leaving the abbey to meet the VonTrapp family -- "I Have Confidence". Not only did singing make me happy, as it's something I love to do, but the lyrics gave me an instant confidence boost.

With each step I am more certain,
Everything will turn out fine.
I have confidence,
The world can all be mine!
They'll have to agree
I have confidence in me.
I have confidence in sunshine,
I have confidence in rain.
I have confidence that spring will come again!
Besides, which you see
I have confidence in me.

The stress of the week was over Friday morning when I handed in my last assignment, so I decided to celebrate and
boost my mood by do
ing something ridiculous. A friend of mine and I have this thing where we write to-do lists for each other. On my most recent list I was dared to go to class wearing undies over my leggings, so
I decided to pull the look off Friday afternoon.


In this sweet outfit I hung out in my residence, went to my physics class, ate a snack in the cafeteria, and lounged around before finally changing into "real clothes" later that evening. Sometimes I wonder if I have too much confidence, as apparently my confidence is currently high enough that I don't embarrass easily. I felt pretty good in that outfit, and I worked it like it was the most fashionable outfit imaginable. Plus I felt a bit like a superhero, as it seems to be a superhero norm to wear tights with undies on top. I now know why that's the outfit of choice for someone trying to save the world -- it's incredibly comfortable!
