That's really about it. I'm just a guy who makes stuff. Really, the more diverse the range of stuff that I make, the more excited I get, as shown in this fancy graph:

I made that graph!

Some people (who shall remain un-named) like to diagnose me with attention deficit disorder, because of the frequency of my changing endeavours. But I beg to differ!! I am just very passionate, about a lot of things. Please understand.

Now, back to the story about me.

Woodworking! I like woodworking because I feel like I can do it. Other things, like swimming, dancing, social studies, general memory, shoe shopping and *cough* being cool, I don't feel so confident with. I guess that's why I don't do them as often...


Alright, it's time to take a knee. I'm going to get very honest with you and reveal to you a part of my nucleus (that is my heart). Most of the time - not all of the time, but a good majority of the time - I don't know what I am doing. In other words, I do a lot of failing, and to combat the failing I do a lot of thinking and analyzing and pretending to calculate and pondering really hard until my brain is just a bucket of melted ice-cream. And that, my friends, about sums up my life. Melted ice-cream.

Somewhere, in the midst of the failure and chaos that my mind endures, some magical accident happens. I'll stumble across an idea or a solution that actually isn't terrible and KABOOM, out comes a million-dollar design. That "kaboom" moment is my nicotine, it's like finding the word that's at the tip of your tongue, or finishing a marathon (at least how I imagine it would feel to finish a marathon). Yea, it's a good time. And maybe that's what I like about woodworking, that "Aha! Gotcha!" moment and the whole problem solving aspect of it. Plus I love sanding. Lots and lots of sanding, with various tools and grits. I may have tendonitis.


So, to make a big stick shorter, let's just say I like to make stuff.

Wise guy: "I think you took it too far."
