what i like is when i say it out loud, it's really hard to make out whether i'm saying beloved or beloathed

on the one hand: i want a remarkable so i don't have all my information on random pieces of paper that are scattered everywhere

on the other hand: it's really useful to be able to pin those bits of paper up so i can look at all of them at once

relieved to confirm that the reason i didn't know i needed to vote today is because i didn't in fact need to vote

sewing machine, rambling 

a couple things that i hadn't realized before trying to get it to work are that the retractable spool pin and the accessory box are both missing. These are easy enough to work around - i can keep accessories elsewhere, and the machine came with a pin that fits in the extra pin hole, so i'm just using that

sewing machine, rambling 

one thing i'm really liking is that i can open the front up, which means i can see what's going on inside. not only is that just neat from a right to repair standpoint, it's also really useful for me to see which parts are moving when so i can figure out what the machine is actually _doing_

sewing machine, rambling 

so far i've just done the basics: winding some bobbins, threading it, and sewing the non-buttonhole stitches

aside from the threading, it's all reasonably intuitive and there are some really cool bits: my favorite so far is how when you're winding the bobbin, the latch needs to be pushed in - so when the bobbin is full, that pushes it out just enough that it stops winding (this is described on page 9 of the manual)
