Starting the new role

func main() {  imposter := true  for {
println(destroySelfEsteem())
time.Sleep(1 * time.Second)
if !imposter {
// we'll quit looping when our imposter syndrome ends
// does that happen at some point?
break
}
}
}
// Return a random reason as to how/why
// you're going to fuck this up.
func destroySelfEsteem() string {
reasonsImAnImposter := make([]string, 0)
reasonsImAnImposter = append(reasonsImAnImposter,
"You're going to embarrass your employer!",
"You're going to sign your name to a mess that will live on for years!",
"You're going to destroy your credibility and end your career.",
"You aren't smart enough!",
"You have no idea what you are doing!")
rand.Seed(time.Now().Unix())
message := reasonsImAnImposter[rand.Intn(len(reasonsImAnImposter))]
return message
