Prepping the Living Room
After work, I spent some time getting primer on the living room ceiling and walls. A slow discovery: I really, really hate priming walls. And probably painting, too.
I thought I’d be ok with it, but there’s a patience and precision that I just seem to lack. Maybe it was my mental state this week, but I was just impatient, easily frustrated, and just angry at the whole process.
I eventually slowed things down, and was able to make better progress. I was envisioning trying to primer all three rooms, but it slowly dawned on me that I’d be lucky to just get one room done.

I got about halfway. Maybe if I had some pot and a whole day, I could have just taken my time and gone about things slowly. But I was trying to squeeze in some work on the house after a full day working at my job, and all I really wanted was to be done.
Part of me was just longing for something mindless like demo. I think adding primer is technically a mindless job, but I’m not yet skilled enough to where it’s mindless – I was messing up a lot, left and right.
