I am taking a bit of a different approach for today's Five On Friday. I usually share some of the things that I have done this week or are looking forward to doing over the weekend. But today I am want to talk about Five things I don't know anything about but wish I did.
I think my number ONE thing I wish I knew how to do is sew. Watching those mice whip up Cindy's dress seemed so easy - but I opened a pattern once and had no clue what was going on.
TWO Calligraphy. I am not sure if I have shared the story of my horrible handwriting as a child, and how my Mom made me practice and practice and practice to make it perfect and presentable. Now I love my handwriting (thanks Mom) and I always get compliments on it.
But I want to take it a step further. I have a few online classes bookmarked and a local one as well. The trouble is finding the time to sign up!
THREE Webdesign. I know literally 0% about what is happening on the online world. Which is pretty sad for a Graphic Designer. I need to step my game up. This is hopefully also in the works for this summer.
FOUR Run like a pro. I am just going to come right out and say I really don't like running. I have tried to like it, and given it second and third chances. I wish I could be one of those people who loved to run. But until then I will buy all the cute Nikes and keep practicing.
FIVE Say No. I read something once that said just because you can doesn't mean you should. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE working with my customers to make something awesome and custom. But I find myself getting the most worked up about things I just had no business saying yes to in the first place. This is more of a life skill, and believe me I am working on it!
I guess what it all amounts to is just making the time to learn new skills. Cameron and I decided last week we were going to cut out some of our TV time to learn new stuff over the summer and I am super excited about that!
What are some things you wish you could do?
