Learning New Tricks

I beg to differ.

Today’s (totally and completely optional) prompt:
What new tricks would you like to learn or have you learned?

I crave learning. I always have. I know a little about a lot of things, always wanting to know more.

I ask questions. I’m curious. Nosy might be a better word for it, though.

I want to learn how to fry chicken. Knitting is on my list to master.

I want to learn REAL calligraphy, not just the pseudo-calligraphy I do already.

In my mind, I think with some practice, I could sing better.

Learning a little HTML code would be nice, as would learning how to fully use Excel. You’d think one would know how to do that by now, huh?

I’d like to learn how to be more assertive. Can that be learned?

Learning how to ask for help and then learning how to actually TAKE the help that’s offered… that would be lovely.

What do you want to learn to do?
