Works In Progress

After reading a few blogs (more on that in a later post), I have decided to post a list of works-in-process. If all goes as planned, I'll re-post this list from time to time, with some projects updated, others crossed off (and therefore completed), and new ones added.

WIP List

Things I've learned...

...over the past few months:

1. Being able to make a choice (food, how to spend my time, what to wear) is not the same as being forced to take the worst/easiest option.

2. Owning a book is not the same as having mastery over its contents.

3. Having the tools for X is not the same as having the time (or attention) to become good at X.

Being an adult means learning these sorts of things.
