Re: Things I want to learn how to do
When I lived in Sydney, I decided I wanted to learn to surf. Problem was, I couldn't swim. So I found someone who tried to teach me, and found out I have an actual phobia--whenever my head went underwater, had a panic attack. I have since discovered that what I remember as a minor incident at a swimming pool when I was small was actually a near drowning, and this is likely the cause. Funny thing is, I'm not actually afraid of being in the water; I just have panic attacks when I go under. So, surfing's out.
That only leaves learning the guitar. I'm kind of old for that now, but I still want to.
Although I would like to learn to speak/read French as well, so I could write a good bio of Lafayette. I don't think an even-toned one exists. I'd also like to learn Chinese, simply because I've had a lot of Chinese friends over the years. Seems a bit difficult, though.
