    Ime its always 4 weeks with Will. Totally worth it.

    Also, even if its a job that may take under an hour, if there are 60 peoples garments ahead of you, not to mention bespoke commissions, obviously there will be a wait time. Fair is fair.


    Wouldn't that make you want to do one at a time so adjustments can be made on the follow up orders?

    Or did you mean to say NOT advisable?

    Admittedly this is what I'm hoping for right now, hopefully the problems will be fixed enough to warrant a second attempt which will fix even more of the problems. As for now I'll wait and see.

    Meant "inadvisable"...which isn't word according to autocorrect (hence "I advisable")

    Got it.

    Anyways, yes, shugs pointed that out before indeed. Obviously all 3 of us are right.

    @The Noodles , you're confusing cyclical with circuitous or circular. Cyclical here can mean 'lots at once and then nothing for a while' in terms of learning.

    @Monkeyface , I like that first picture though...lol

    I don't think cyclical is a great word for that, I would say ebb and flow.

    If you're talking to me, then that's exactly what cyclical means... Occurring in cycles, i.e. ebb and flow.

    Doesn’t ‘ebb and flow’ ultimately mean that something is cyclical?

    Edit: Whoops, RTC beat me to it.

    Well, perhaps. To me, cyclical means in cycles. Could be a dramatic cycle or not, whereas ebb and flow connotes to me a more dramatic cycle of something being there and then being gone, in a naturally repeating fashion.

    learning is the first derivative of knowledge. learning ebbing and flowing (assuming it never goes negative) means that knowledge is steadily increasing. knowledge ebbing and flowing means you periodically learn and then forget. but different words entirely would make the metaphor less complicated. I would say that if learning happens all at once, and then not for a while, then it happens "in fits and starts" or that knowledge is "lumpy" (but this is kind of a technical economics term, not sure how well it applies generally).

    Cyclical is a good way to describe the process of learning, as is ebbs and flow, as is spurts, etc etc etc. Ebb and flow has a very gentle connotation by definition, not dramatic.

    Lol. I can't believe we're having this discussion on SF.

    Edit: Spurts might be a good synonym for the 'lumpy' term.

    Idk, to me its like the water is on the beach and then its gone, so ebb and flow to me connotes something being there, and then being gone. In any case, Im speaking to these terms as colloquialisms, not academic terms. Whatever, as long as the point is being made, I dont think it matters.

    I effing hate work. I am going to have a HARD mental disconnection once I step out of my office. I effing hate work.

    In other news, I received a screenshot from a vendor today and in his internet search box he had, "how to search for celebrity nude photos."
    That made my day.
