Yesterday I decided that I was going back to a paper planner (Plum Paper). I’ve always been heavily invested in technology, but I love the fact that I can take time to sit with my daughter and work on our “journals” together. She has a Bullet Journal and I plan out my week, all while we listen to her favorite music (usually Taylor Swift). Eventually I won’t have this opportunity, so I’m willing to give up technology to make that happen.

Although I have many years of formal education, most of what I've learned has come from experimenting and trying to solve problems on my own. Once an idea for a project is set in my mind, it is all-consuming and one must learn everything possible about the subject on the way to the outcome. For learning is more than reading books and spoken word, it is hours of frustration, trial and error, and one sudden flash of insight when the world magically makes sense. It is during this moment when I am truely alive.
