Everybody makes mistakes. Real friends can laugh together about their goofs, secure that they won't be put down as an incompetent person. I bake my own bread, because low carb bread isn't readily available.
I also enjoy making animated gifs to welcome new members to Atheist Nexus. Some of my attempts have been ... well...
Mistakes, goofs, being 'called out' for them......that hits home for me. I get a knot in my stomach every time I make a mistake in front of others. I try to hide them. Thanks to my dad's comments growing up, I always felt inadequate.
"Nice play, Ox. Whatya'do for an encore?"
"Does your face hurt?" No....."Cuz it's killing me!"
"You know how to get rid of 20 pounds of ugly fat?? Cut off your head!"
Remarks like this really stick with a kid.....even into adulthood. I was all about respecting and supporting others when I raised my boys. Thankfully, they have self esteem and weren't subjected to feeling inferior for making honest mistakes.
Great GIFS, Ruth! All I know about html and coding I learned (and quickly forgot) during a computer tech class I had to take for my Master's Degree.
I love making bread, but do it the lazy way....with a bread maker!
Now that I'm done with my Master's and job hunting, I'm cleaning the house top to bottom and getting back to crocheting, which I taught myself how to do 2 years ago :)
Maybe we should start a separate bread making discussion. Anyway, I need bread that's much lower in carbs than what's sold as so called low carb bread. There used to be a Keto bread mix, but the company went out of business. I use 3 cups gluten flour, 3/4 cup soy flour, and 1/4 c either flax meal or hemp protein. The last ingredient has fiber, otherwise it comes out like rubber. The ingredients are expensive compared to regular flours.
