Ever heard of the famous aphorism “It’s not the destination that matters, it’s the journey”? Whoever said that was definitely partially correct. While the destination surely is a big part of any endeavor, the steps taken toward reaching it are just as crucial. Given that Halloween is almost upon us, let’s assume you are to attend a fantastic masquerade. Your first inclination would most likely be to go out and buy the prettiest mask you can find. Although simply purchasing a mask for your extravagant ball would be nice, it would also put you on the same level as all the other party goers out there. Inversely, making your own mask-now that puts you on an entirely different playing field. :)
