Re: How handy around the house are you?
I worked my way through college doing a variety of jobs... But one of them was working with my uncle as a general contractor. I learned to do almost every part of home building, except Pluming and electrical... SO I choose option 1.
In those things which we commit to practice we can master, and with mastery we have the freedom to use these skills whenever we desire, without this practice we are slaves to our inability.
