Happy Easter, fools. I am late with my March learning summary. So it goes.
Given the riveting nature of the postal service (the government branch, not the band), I will admit to a wishy washy commitment to this past month’s education, but I picked up a few nuggets of semi-interesting information and a refreshed perspective which I consider a win.
When I first conceived of this post, I anticipated my writing to be fairly snide, but I’ve since come to realize that given the era of instant technology in which we live, it’s incredibly easy to take the ability and agility at which we communicate for granted. And while no one would ever confuse me for a history buff, the evolution of the U.S. Postal Service is actually quite remarkable.
As transportation technology evolved, so did too the mail system. Planes, trains, and automobiles (not to mention horses and steamboats) revolutionized the movement of mail and played a vital role in bringing about American independence.
I’m trying to do this while watching Fixer Upper which tells you I’m super invested. I’m about this close to moving to Waco, Texas to remodel a cute Tudor style house that I can live happily ever after in. I was going to bullet some information, but honestly, I don’t believe it’s worth the time or the effort. So I’ll leave you with this: if you want to wet your whistle on the U.S. Postal Service, this is a great resource.
I think April is going to be the month I try embroidery which I don’t believe was one of my initial ideas for the year, but it’s something I’ve been meaning to try and my parents gave me some kits a couple Christmases ago. Will keep you posted.
