Handyman in the House

Our garbage disposal has been broken for a couple of weeks. We haven't called the landlord yet, since it's really not a big issue, but it's starting to smell a bit because you can't fish out all of the food pieces out of the drain (and I'm getting tired of sticking my hand down there. gross). 

Instead of asking Nate to figure out how to fix it, though, I decided to fight the patriarchy and take the matters into my own hands. Irina, the handywoman. (Ironically, as I type this, "handywoman" autocorrects to "handyman." Fight the patriarchy, autocorrect!) 

Anyway, I was ready for this big project. I got out the toolbox. I pulled up a Youtube video on how to fix garbage disposals. It was on. Turns out, all you have to do is push the reset button at the bottom of the disposal. But hey, the disposal now disposes again, and I have me to thank for that!
