    Independent To A Point Or Maybe A Fault

    I like to fix things, figure things out, and be independent. I like to know I can make it on my own.  I sometimes worry if I break down, who would I call?  How would I get out of my jam?  Not sure what the answer is, but I don't want to have someone else carry my baggage, it...

    Well I'm Not Book Smart...

    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?

    Whatever It Takes.

    One of the most important lessons I learned from my father before he passed away was just that. Whatever it takes to get the job done. Duck tape can work wonders. Nothing is trash until you have found a way to use it at least two or three times after the original use. Recycle...

    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.
