One of the joys and dangers of studying in the MACT program is that you start to feel scared enough to feel confident enough to fool around and try simple new things with technology. The danger is that you're not good enough not to spend most of your time fiddling around doing those things.

This is not much, I know. Your basic 8 year old can do more. Asleep.

But it is a minor accomplishment for me, because of me. And how I get in the way with my pre-wired reaction that new things won't work.

But it does remind me of me when I attribute malevolence to the skies when they conspire to bring rain on a morning of golf!

Either way, that's bad storytelling.
