Is there something you’ve always wanted to learn but haven’t gotten around to? What is it and what’s stopping you from mastering the skill?
A couple of things. One is a simple one which I should have taken up years ago. I have wanted to be able to speak in French for decades. I just love that language. I wish I had picked up a class or two in it. When I was 25 I remember going to a book store and finding a self learning book and CD with it on how to speak French and at that time the cost was too much for a guy who was struggling with finances. I kept thinking to myself “let’s get this money thing sorted out and I will come back and pick up that book and learn atleast at home if not going to a class”. I never did do that.
The other thing and the one I have really big regrets about is not having learned how to play guitar. Well, since I am almost 40 my chance of becoming an arena rocking heavy metal singer / guitarist have passed me by (note the hint, just a hint, of sarcasm) but I would love to be able to rock along with my favourite guitar riffs and solos from my my favourite musicians and bands. Air guitar is fab and all that but to be able to play the music out loud, making the guitar squeal like a hot woman who I am making love to and she is on the verge of a mammoth orgasm – ok, let me get a cold shower now, I will be right back!
Ok so yeah to be able to do both and take lessons is what I would have liked to do. Given a choice of only one, I’d pick the guitar. Just that I don’t think I will have much time on my hands. Same old, same old!
