Let the Work Begin…

Well… Not for Me

When I say “work” I guess I mean let the construction workers work begin and let my sitting in my chair sipping beer begin. I don’t know what I would do without my parents. If it was left up to me, I would have waited until my entire roof collapsed before I even began considering having it all fixed up. I should probably take up some sort of adult “shop class” or training because I feel like a worthless man. I feel bad for my girlfriend if we ever decide to get married…

Top of the Line

So my parents really didn’t spare any expenses this year on me for Christmas. If you recall, not only are they buying me a new roof, but they are buying me new gutters and some fancy gutter guards protection thing that I apparently need and definitely never had. If you check out that link I think you can tell by the way that I have been talking that my parents got me the really good and really expensive one. It costsĀ almost 2000 big ones but my dad assures me it will be the last time I ever have to spend a dime towards my gutters so I was definitely not complaining.

As far as my new roof and insulation goes, I haven’t made a final decision yet and to be honest don’t really know what I am supposed to be looking for. I am probably going to have to end up calling my dad and embarrassing myself once again by asking stupid questions about things that I should definitely know at this point in my life. My dad is the absolute best and I think he would be mortified if he knew just how deep my lack of knowledge goes when it comes to any kind of handy man work around the house. This is just not the way it used to be and I think it is only going to get worse as time goes by.

Once Again, Thank You Internet

Did people really just go to the library whenever they needed to look up information about anything? I am trying to think of what I could possibly do to be able to do the proper research when it comes to roofs or gutters without the internet. Whenever I don’t know something my immediate instinct is to pull out my phone and head to google.

I can’t imagine how easy school must be these days. Seriously, if there is a question on homework or some other dumb assignment could you not just literally type in the question word for word in google and have every answer you could possibly need?

This really can’t be good for your memory or critical thinking skills in the long run. Kids are probably just zombies in class now and for any kind of project or homework why would a kid go out of his way to read a book when you can have any question you could ever ask at your fingertips? I am sure they have some crazy phone rules in class now because what kid doesn’t have a smart phone these days? That is just a dictionary, encyclopedia, and entire library on everything right in your pocket.

And as I criticize this I am sitting on my computer, drinking beer, and looking for different kinds of roofs. I am quite the hypocrite, aren’t I?
