I have a shameful admission.
I may be a bit of a computer geek, but I am a lazy computer geek. One who would rather whine and beg for help than figure it out myself.
(Cookie, are you giggling yet?)
Upon further reflection, however, I decided that my whining had more to do with my confidence in my own abilities (or lack thereof) and fear of failure (mainly the latter). The same thing happened last year when I whined about how my Apple Magic Mouse was so unreliable. Erika pointed me toward a site that described how to use folded bits of aluminum foil and paper to make the battery connections more solid.
Now, in my own defense, I have no problem googling and YouTube-ing for help on a knitting problem*. I guess I have more confidence in my knitting abilities than my computer abilities. It helps that one can actually see one's knitting; computers are virtual -- everything happens behind the curtain.
Okay. Not lazy. Scared.
Will I use this new-found knowledge of myself to my advantage? Will I do a little research on my own next time?
* See, Cookie, I'm not that bad!
