Analog DIY Vs. Digital
Still buried in pre-move house repairs. So far, it’s been oddly satisfying (odd in that I never thought installing a dryer vent could be so interesting). Thankfully nothing has been super challenging just yet. And there’s so much information out there on the Internet plus other sources who have been through all of this before.
But I think another satisfying aspect is that for literally, the past decade I’ve been buried in digital projects. And they’re truly ephemeral at best. Even if you get close to a state of completion, something new comes along, or changes requested = a project that never ends. And someone can just hit delete at any time and wipe all your work away.
So it’s kinda calming to paint a wall and have satisfaction that it’ll hopefully stay this way for several years.
A friend mentioned that his interest in getting the new Apple gear was fading recently since becoming a homewoner, as his attention turned to the next “home improvement” project. At the time I couldn’t relate, but now I see things shifting. Am currently obsessed with the basement and how it could eventually become a proper “man cave” in a few years. And as a result, I gotta admit the side projects like this hapless blog and the bottle cap website are falling by the wayside for now.
The bottom line: I’m learning new things which is always exciting.
