My favorite and best mentor/teacher in college would say this to us all the time, "use the KISS method -- keep it simple, stupid." It's stuck with me through the years and I cannot help but think of it everyday as I work. It's a pretty good thing to live by too, I love simplifying -- albeit that is difficult sometimes :)
Okay, you can feel sorry. But if we're being true to this here statement, just don't feel sorry for yourself. Maybe a little bit here and there, but when all is said and done, less is better. In my opinion anyway.
I haven't had very much to say lately, but I've been making stuff. And shooting it (not with a gun) and hoping that I find the time to get it all documented and shown here. Small, tiny, baby steps. It's going to happen!
