I'm opening my Division II retrospective with a quote from the first episode of my vlog: "I don't want to do this. I mean, I do, I really want to . . . But, right now, there are a lot of reasons I don't want to do this."
Talking about myself is hard, regardless of how constantly I do it. Particularly, this form, a retrospective, is weird and scary. The Div II retrospective is an account of my Div II, and my argument for why I should be allowed to pass Div II. And there's something really uncomfortable about the idea of writing something the point of which is saying "I deserve this achievement."
So, my strategy is to just be super meta about how weird it is, then dial that back as necessary in later drafts.
