I’m a knitter. And every time I run into the dreaded phrase “at the same time” in a pattern, I’m thinking, “Oh no, you mean the 15″ of 32 stitches/per inch gauge size XXXXXXL sweater I just knit..I was supposed to be doing some funky decorative thing ‘at the same time’…Yeah, I guess I’ll be ripping that out.”
a. forging ahead without reading the directions, and/or
b. doing too many things at once, and/or
I used to hate this. I used to worry that everyone else in the universe had their proverbial ducks in a row. Except me. But now I think that putting ducks in a row just makes it easier for other people to pick them off one by one with semi-automatic hunting rifles, so I just think “so what?” My ducks can go wherever they like and I’ll round them up as needed. Somehow this works for me. Perhaps it drives those I live with a bit crazy.
I actually can’t imagine living life without juggling “at the same times.” Perhaps some people pick one passion and focus exclusively on it, but I prefer my constant revelations, constantly evolving interests. Welcome to my blog, which will probably focus on my library and professional interests. But since I am interested in so many different things, they’ll probably sneak in as well. I’ll try not to be too much of a dilettante.
