#13 - and he said “Yes” and it was good.

1 minute read

Motto: Three days in…

I have been taking this “Yes” thing more seriously than I expected. So far I haven’t turned down an opportunity, invitation, or suggestion. I have regretted nothing (well, after it was done I didn’t regret it). I still have done relatively little, in retrospect, but I have said “yes” when I would otherwise have said “no” at least once a day. Resulting in a lot more pictures and videos in the past three days than usual… because I’ve done a lot more than usual. That’s not saying much.

The Engineering Binder (my long-term project of summarizing everything I learned in engineering school) is now a glorious 44 page word document. 22 of those pages are actually full of content… the others are skeleton pages, table of contents, cover page, etc. I worked on it for 6 hours yesterday. Had a great time doing so.

I’ve been using Evernote a lot. I really like it; which is funny, cause I used to loathe it. It is my new quotepad. It is my companion for the Engineering Binder. “Tags” as a file structure… I get it now! I wish my computer could be organized that way. I don’t wish enough to see if it’s possible, though.

Life is good.

Going to Indiana in 2 days.

Life is good.
