I remember what it was like to be excited by the first page in a fresh notebook.

It bode well. There were possibilities. It could become anything.

Fresh pages still feel like that.

This fresh Coda page, however, feels a little bit different.

The possibilities are limited to my ability to use the tool.

I started trying to rebuild a spreadsheet from the ground up.

I didn't want to build it the exact same thing in a different tool because there were some massive limitations in the form I had originally chosen.

This morning's time block was exploratory.

I learned my way through Coda in inches of flow followed by halting to read the documentation and come up against what the tool is capable of and what I am capable of expressing with their formulas.

Tomorrow, I'll set a bit of a better scope for myself.

I hadn't considered what I want it to look like, only that I didn't.

I hadn't considered what I'm using this sheet for - the original sheet was used to deal with immediate expenses and limited income...I don't know that that is useful any more.

I'm happy. I have a better understanding of the tool and it feels even more like a blank page than it did before I started.
