Thoroughly enjoyed reading about your childhood experience. I remember your Mum mentioning that as a kid you would toil over a puzzle to figure it out on your own, not asking for help. You were and still are that determined! Good for you.

Nederlands is echt een moeilijke taal om te leren!

Exciting post Fei! Personally, I would love getting updates through Substack, maybe at a different section of the issue if the main topic is on something else. That way I know I'm up to date and the updates come at regular intervals.

Btw, haven't heard the working with the garage door metaphor before, but that is a super helpful way to think about it!

Love all the linkages you made. In kids 'selective mutism' is just that – the kid's selecting not to talk. Best remedy: time minus pressure. I love that your first words were a request for smokes. hahaha! Imitate then innovate :)

That Ira Glass quote is gold. Glad you're building in public. I vote for updates in your newsletter. Your newsletter's essentially your status update, so this feels completely authentic. Can't wait for the next installment.
