When I was a kid I used to hate how bright it got in my room on Summer mornings. My solution for years was taping garbage bags around the window sill to keep the light out. It didn’t work that well and in my Mom’s opinion an unnecessary waste of tape and garbage bags.
It wasn’t until years later when I rethought the problem I solved it with a much simpler solution. A black headband that covered my eyes completely.
Sometimes when you look at a problem the first solution you come up with isn’t always the best. Keep thinking.
