Practice makes perfect, or it can internalize your mistakes. So why are we so encouraged to do things on our own without much guidance? There is a reason why, in schools, there is often a right way to do things. But at the same time learn by doing is also a big thing, and I get it we need to put in the work. But often, we mess up and injure ourselves in the drive towards self-improvement.

We sit with one of the greatest communication tools in history, but we use it to avoid communicating.
It is all about us, isn’t it?

Where did fidget toys disappear too? People don’t use fidget spinners quite as much anymore; it’s no longer a fad, so did it help? Did people just go back to sketching in their notebook? How doe s one go to it helps me focus one year, to not using it the next?

Four questions and three lines I wrote today, but the title of this project is not always the most accurate descriptor.

  1. Sometimes it’s right to be curious. Sometimes we don’t bother. I’m sure there are plenty of things you just let be without knowing more. Everything in its place and time.
