Friday Fives: Blah Blah Blah Hindsight

So the peeps at Paper Hangover changed it up. Now we're talking about five things. So think of this as a Four for Friday with a bonus.
  1. Take copious notes at every Gregoire function as they are great fodder for character traits.
  2. Embrace technology sooner. While long-handing will always be close to my heart, there are so many more things you can do with the computer.
  3. Realize that questioning your sanity is all part of the game. You're not the only one experiencing manic upswings or dark days of the pity party.
  4. Own stock in the mood stabilizer industry. Given how we can go from "Ohmigod, I have the best idea EVAH!" to a super-emo Eeyore in hours, owning stock this way would remove the need of the day job.
  5. My ass would get larger. The deeper I dive into a project, the more committed I am to the cause. This means I leave my desk/table/bed less and exercise falls to the wayside.
Don't forget to check out the other lists by heading over to Paper Hangover. Also, while you're at it, join The Lurkdom and win prizes!

What did you wish you knew before you started this journey?
