List of Skills [Nov. 27th, 2008|03:09 am]

List of skills I once had that I want to relearn/master (I've done the following at least once and have the basic idea; some I've done many times, but it's been so long I'm desperately rusty):
  • Reading music
  • Playing an instrument
  • Sewing with a machine
  • Figure drawing
  • Yoga for strengthening my back
  • Picking locks
  • Swimming
  • Making things with clay
  • Baking bread
  • Shooting guns (and cleaning/maintaining them)
  • Riding horses

List of skills I want to learn (from scratch, cuz I don't know how):
  • Wood carving
  • Stand-up comedy
  • Basic couples dancing (with actual steps, as opposed to shuffling)
  • Blowing/manipulating glass
  • Welding
  • Riding a motorcycle
  • Making steamed/baked barbecue pork buns
  • Silversmithing

I know I've talked about most of these before. I just keep turning the stones in my mental gravel pile, polishing, thinking, wishing, refining...

lists

interesting I may have to examine my own list, I don't believe that I ever wrote it down - pick an easy one and start with that - this is the season to bake bread - do these work as motivators - as in if I do xxx chore then I can do xxx interest?

I believe you know people who do all of these things, except perhaps stand up comedy :)

I recently got spammed with this:

...and remembered this posting of yours. "An introduction to recreational shooting for all women 16 or older", this coming Saturday afternoon. FYI!
