    Improvise!

    Sometimes all I have to work with is guts and stubbornness, but I always manage to get stuff done.  I'm also all about reusing stuff.  The table right next to my armchair happens to be the box my printer came in.  It does the job of holding my notebook, pens, and...

    Hey I Have A Neat Idea....

    I have come up with a new idea. I have started to collect cans for fun. I really enjoy it. It gives me a couple dollars because it is recycling. I am excited to keep trying that. It is a lot of fun.

    Well I'm not book smart, I'm not a straight-A student but I think it's important to be resourceful. You may have a brain but if you don't know how to use it efficiently then what's the point?
