I want to be able to carve and frame the lumber, lay the bricks of the archway, install the piping, install the electric, maybe even at the schematic level, not entirely by myself but at least be capable of lending a hand. Do I really have to be shoehorned into one trade for work for the rest of my life?

Get really good at one or two things, but learn it all. Then go be a GC and recognize what you should sub out and what you shouldn't, and pick up a new skill now and again like pic related.

No, most trades can be learned "good enough" with a few years of experience in each, but if you actually want to make money someday you'll have to pick at least one thing you can focus on

I didn't get glasses until I was 16, only because I failed the vision portion of my drivers test. Blows my mind that kids had glasses before me

Autorefractors. The whole "number 1 or number 2" is just to confirm the numbers the autorefractor spits out.

Work at one or no trades then study and practice, but make fucking sure your job has benefits because satisfaction doesn't buy tools and equipment and land and hookers.

Many tradies help each other so if your skill is valued (electrics and anything using math is a nice filter) you can trade favors.
