Ach. I am not a self-learner. Seriously. Actually, what does that even mean? Not a self-learner?
Let’s put this another way. I’d much rather be in a situation– either classroom or one-on-one– where someone shows me how to do something and then I do it. Totally have to see it and then get my hands on it– a visual-kinesthetic learner, if you will. Teaching myself how to do something is utter torture for me. But I’m doing it.

Then I’ll have an excuse to renovate my kitchen. What? We could use an extra window or two. Right? Maybe some new countertops…under-cabinet lighting…new refrigerator…that’d help my photography cause, right?
Viv says I should keep reaching.
