I get ahead of myself sometimes, even when I know I don’t have enough experience to undertake something new.
I convinced myself that I could easily cut my own hair, and this could have turned out fine if I had simply taken a minute to look at online tutorials to learn the basics of using clippers to create a fade.
My first attempt at cutting my own hair was so pathetic that I opted to simply shave it into a buzz cut until I could grow it out again and try the process another time. Thankfully my hair tends to grow back a lot faster than I ever realized! The next time around I paid closer attention to my hand motions and the end result looked much better than the previous attempt. After I had cut my hair four or five times, I felt like I finally had the process down and understood. Unfortunately I haven’t reached this point when it comes to setting up new appliances for the first time. I either do the wrong measurements or fail to have the adequate power sources needed nearby. I bought a garbage disposal for my kitchen sink and didn’t consider needing a power outlet in the cabinet or a wire running directly from my home’s electrical box. A similar issue came up for me when I decided to purchase a ductless mini split for my Orland Park home from a nearby hardware store on sale. I figured that I would do the installation myself, falsely assuming that it would have a power cord attached to it like a window air conditioner. Instead of plugging the ductless mini split into a standard 120 volt wall outlet, it needs a wire coming directly from the home’s electrical box. On top of that, the ductless mini split also requires its own breaker.
