  • "DIY has really helped me because I always want to do proactive things but I sit around on my video games thinking I'll go do something tomorrow, which ends up being more video games, because I can't think of what to do or how I would! So DIY has helped me discover things that I actually can do, things I wouldn't of done if it wasn't for DIY showing me it!"
