Laid out all 437 pieces on the bed. I realised why people lay it out on the bed. it’s easier that way. of course i got a backache when I was done.
this also meant that I couldn’t sleep until I was done. Damn.

The very first two pieces put together. It’s been AGES since I last played with Lego. I grew up playing it and i’m sure it did good things to my brain, like visualisation and structure and organisation. Also more importantly, learning how to follow instructions.

it was like working at a factory. I read the instructions off the manual, where it states for each section, the number of pieces per parts. i pick up the pieces off the rows off my bed, swivel around the my desk and start putting them together. bit by bit the fighter came together.

i was watching V (80s tv show) while fixing this Lego (80s toy) Star Wars (80s movie). i’m an 80s kid!
