i’ve got a reputation to maintain

i have this COMPLETELY ERRONEOUS reputation that i’m good at everything.  it’s so embarrassing.  i’m really awful at a lot of stuff!  a friend once remarked “is there anything you can’t do?!” after i’d used a credit card to unlock a door.  i replied “there’s tons i can’t do, but there’s very little that i won’t try.”  i had read “picked the lock with a credit card”  in several books, and decided to give it a shot.  

everything skill that i have was once something that i wished i had.  they say that “necessity is the mother of invention”, but it’s also the mother of “skill acquisition”.  and “curiosity” can be the dad in this family analogy.

i was talking to a friend on the phone yesterday, and she mentioned that i was “so good at everything”, and yeah… flattering.  but really, truly, false.  

i’m not really going anywhere with this, other than to clear my name, and to maybe step it up a notch in my writing discipline.  

i haven’t written on here in so long, because it’s been so long.  that’s just how i function.  so here’s the first step in getting back into my writing habits, and maybe less great at procrastinating.
