Building/Making objects for my pockets, artistry, and everyday life makes me happy.
For example, I recently created an earplug carrying case out of a contact lens case. I cut up, sanded, engraved, and painted the case. It is now a matte black, small, and efficient container, replacing the oversized and ugly case the earplugs came with. Every time I pull it out of my pocket before I play drums it makes me smile.
Has anyone customized or made anything that makes them very happy?
Also, I love SquirrelInHell’s #LessWrongMoreNice, so I’m putting it here.
Most of my work is virtual (as I sometimes say: “when they turn off the electric power, my whole life’s work will be lost”), so I also feel great whenever I do something in the “real space”.
