I am a person who desires to learn new stuff to make my mind always busy. This is because my teacher in high school once told me; an idle mind is the devil’s playground.
There are a lot of things that I want to learn ; how to bake, sew, play the piano and a lot more. I envy (hmmm...one of the seven deadly sins...
) my sisters who know how to use the
sewing machine. It is really my dream to
make my own quilt. I attempted to do it
but when I accidentally sewed my finger, I gave up. Maybe sewing is not for me. My mind fantasized cross stitching too but because I get caught up with my work and my studies most of the time, it has to take a backseat for a while. I sometimes envy (again!) my sisters. Why do they know a lot of craft, while the only thing I know is
hold a book, sit in a corner and read or sometimes solve puzzles. I cannot even sew my own pillow case. I have to wait for my sister to do it for
me. I know how to cook but I am not what you consider an
expert in the kitchen. My ability to cook is somewhat mediocre. Don't worry though, I assure you, the dishes I prepare are edible.
I even tried to ride a motorcycle when I was seven under my father's tutelage but it was so long ago and I already forgot everything about it. I also want to learn how to hold and shot a gun. It is not because I want to kill people. It is for self-defense just in case I need it someday. There is nothing wrong with being prepared for anything. We do not know what lies ahead in the next bend.
As for my latest adventure, it is learning the French language. It is really a challenge. I bought a French dictionary for this purpose. I know few words and phrases but too bad, I do not know how to construct sentences. My best friend cannot teach me for now as he is busy with his job. I am trying to familiarize myself with two words a day. I am learning them step by step. And that is where it ends as I do not know how to write and construct sentences from those words I learned. I wish I was born a French because I really love the language (maybe I was one in my previous life.)
So I guess this is all for now. Au revoir mes amis!
