I DID IT MYYYYY WAYYYY
We've all uttered those words, but the fact is, we're not "too old", we've just got to a point where "we're too SMART" for whatever it is that we feel that we're too old for.
I often wonder where I would be if I didn't start touring the world with punk rock bands when I was 16 and rode that into my late 20's.
Where would I be if I went and got a engineering degree, and got a nice 6 figure job? Would my life be any better?
I don't know. I don't care. I chose this.
I decided at a early age, to dream. I decided to do what I have to do to survive while I chased various dreams.
One of two things are gonna happen...
1. I'll chase my dreams to the grave
2. I'll have my moment in the sun.
In order to pursue a dream, one has to sacrifice stability. You shun from the 9 to 5 slavery, and you put your days together as you see fit.
I, by no means, am knocking those who chose to get a degree and a good job. In fact, I have moments of envy.
I work hard to balance both. I'm not special, or unique, we all work hard and we all have different dreams.
Ok, I just had to get that out of my brain.
I finished the Farm Table project.
I work alone most of the time, and I'm forced to carry stuff by myself . So, keeping that in mind, this ridiculously heavy table can be broken down and loaded in the back of a YUGO if need be.
It's definitely a Industrial Heirloom piece. A piece that can be handed down through generations.
Even if it was involved in a house fire, the base would stand up, and one would just have to get a new top. I doubt that can be said for anything IKEA has to offer.
