I'm getting pretty not so bad at this
I got the second coat of mud on the ceiling today as well as doing two of the four joints at the ceiling. While I'm certainly not an expert I can definitely feel a little more dexterity with the taping knife and trowel. It's going on a lot smoother and I'm starting to get a little more hang of the intricacies of the knife angle to smooth and feather the mud over the joints. My plan is to finish the two other ceiling-wall joints tomorrow and get the third coat on the ceiling so we can get the ceiling painted by Tuesday or Wednesday. Then we'll see about the next big thing: rigging up the lights. I know it wasn't tough taking down the old ones so hopefully putting up new ones will be equally easy.
