The power of making do.

I am too. In 8th grade I wrote a paper that got me a scholarship into a private school. [which was great ’cause we had no money and my public school system stunk] – anyway, the subject?

The power of making do.

and I gave examples of how it’s good to make use of what you have, even if it’s not perfect and stuff like that. Wish I had it – I was proud of it – but I hold the way of thinking close to me, as it keeps me grounded. Otherwise, I can easily get my head up in the clouds about ideas. I have to ask, “Does it blend?” [with reality] from time to time, check my sources, and all that type of stuff.

I know it’s two different senses of “pragmatic” but they use the same word for a reason.
