For experiment 1, I was admittedly slightly too ambitious. My ideas were a bit too grand for what I could actually do, and I had to change the direction of my sample in order to realize it.
For experiment 2, though, I’ve been feeling bored. Sure, everything has been fairly straightforward, actionable, and the familiarity of the genre carries an odd comfort.
Perhaps I did them in the wrong order. While I was working on experiment 1, I felt partially blindfolded, which wasn’t too great considering the ambition I envisioned.
There’s no need to dwell on the past though. These experiences have made me excited for my third experiment, which is I consider to be a nice balance of risk and practicality.
Maybe this is just one of those “third time’s a charm” situations. It’s my opportunity to return to the center field after the first two experiments pushed me up, down, left, and right.
Regardless, I’m looking forward to it.
