list day 19: i wish

Things I wish I could do:

  1. Play guitar
    I've attempted to teach myself quite a few times, and do own a guitar. I just give up when I get stuck on the hard chords or aren't immediately successful!
  2. Sew
    I have a sewing machine, I'm just not very good with it. I recently bought a book with instructions on making skirts without patterns. It seems fairly simple, and I even picked up some fabric. Now, just need to make some time to actually sit down with it!
  3. Crochet or knit
    Though, I don't think that's a good hobby to have with cats.
  4. Make jewelry
    I've made some repairs to some of my beaded necklaces. Why not make my own?
  5. Sing properly
    Sure, I sing in a choir. I must be halfway decent since I'm also in a smaller sub-group. But I'm not formally trained and I know I'm not using the right techniques. I think I'd have more confidence in myself if I took some lessons!
  6. Learn how to use my DSLR
    Sure, it takes great photos in "Auto" mode. But I need to read the book and learn to use the manual settings. Even if I remembered my photography classes from high school, the controls are a lot different on my (broken) film SLR!

I could probably do most if not all of these things if I endless free time. Unfortunately, I have very little free time.

I just keep wishing instead.

Hey! Thanks for visiting my blog. We don't usually celebrate so hard for St. Paddy's day..but you only live once..right? ha ha.

I just bought my very first DSLR!! I am just like you..I want to know how to work everything. I'm going slowly and just taking a lot (and I mean A LOT) of pictures in the auto mode. You and I will be learning together.

spooky... most of those things on your list I also wish I could do (although some of them I can already, I just don't have time for them... and I don't have a DSLR but my film SLR is not broken! I just never use it)
