The Last 100 Meters – In Depth Post #7

I say to myself that the night is in 18 days, and that’s really soon, but I don’t think I’ve fully realized how quickly that day is going to come.

Hello all, who are interested in what I will be learning over the next few months. My in-depth project this year is learning the acoustic guitar. Now, to some people this may seem really easy or basic, but having almost zero experience with guitar, it’s definitely not going to be a walk in the park. Either way, I am very excited, and already looking forward to this In-Depth project. Why.. Read More
