I had the duty today, so I spent a good deal of time cleaning and taking weather reports. I admit, I'm growing frustrated with myself. Some things are just going very slow, and it almost feels like the harder I try the further behind I fall. I'm sure this is in many ways due to my own unrealistic expectations for myself. I just need to keep my focus, keep honing my edge and getting better.

We started setting the jibboom before the day was done today. Every day, every step brings us that much closer to being ready to sail. I have high hopes for that first day of sailing; renew my energy some. My ankle is starting to feel better, and hopefully it'll be back to full strength soon.

I'm really looking forward to a day where I don't have any stupid questions. I don't think that day is particularly close at hand, but I'll get there.


  1. We're in totally different fields, but definitely at the same point with feeling new enough to know nothing, but not so new that we should still be asking dumb questions. Eez a tough point! But I'm pretty sure they hired you for good reasons, and it's a worthwhile investment for them to train you, so don't stress it.

  2. I appreciate the well wishes, and I hear what you're saying. I just expect a lot from myself.

    Besides, this isn't the first time I've been in over my head. Just venting a touch.

    Be well doll
