I'm linking in again with Home Life Simplified's Listmania listapalooza to think about things I'd like to learn. After pondering it for a couple of minutes, I now know what I don't want to learn. I don't want to learn how to dig my own camp toilet. I don't want to learn how to milk a snake. Nor do I want to learn how to become a hillbilly hand fisher, as much as wading through muddy rivers and shoving my arm up to the shoulder in a dark underwater hole sounds appealing. I'd rather learn how to crap my dacks and have others be none the wiser.
But the things I'd like to learn, in all seriousness, are surprisingly quite a few.
I feel the pull to continue learning. I would like to return to Melbourne Uni one day and finish my Masters Degree in Deaf Education. I would love to learn how to become an audiologist so I can return to the real world of work and adult conversation. I would love to improve my Auslan skills.
I would love to learn German, Swedish and read braille.
I would love to learn how to crochet, paint with oils and keep plants alive.
I would love to learn how to ski, to meditate, to relax and to like myself.
I want to learn how to do at least one really amazing magic trick, or to do that flippy thing with a coin across my hand and back.
I want to learn to do the cup song just like Anna Kendrick can do. She is so awesome.
Now all I need to do is learn where I'm going to find the fecking time to do these things.
So, Old Dog - what new tricks do you want to learn?
