    I guess I have learned to do everything I want to know. I can't think of a thing.

    I've been learning French on my own and want to finish that program, travel to some Francophone country and use it.

    Finish writing my book. I've been stuck for about three years.
    Find a hobby I can enjoy with my wife for when we retire.
    Get a better understanding of modern physics (Standard Model/String Theory), since I'm pretty much stuck at Protons, Neutrons and electrons.

    Ach. I've read several books that attempt to dumb this down but I still don't get it. Whenever I try to get my head around it I start to wonder if there are people who are smarter than me.

    Then I close the book and dismiss that silly notion.

    Have you read Brian Greene? He's still incomprehensible, but he's entertaining. He also did some shows for Nova with neat special effects. If you watch these, you can fool yourself into thinking that you understand what he's talking about.

    1. Travel somewhere off of North America: I've traveled all over the US and Canada but have never left the continent. I really want to go to Europe or Australia at some point in my life and this is something that's been on my To Do list for a LONG time. Someday... *sigh*
    2. Learn to play guitar
    3. Do more with photography: I love taking pictures but I don't do much with them.
    4. Figure out how to use Pinterest: Seriously, there's so much information there that I can barely function and start to go cross eyed when I'm on that website, LOL

    I traveled to Australia when I was fresh out of high school. Lived there for a while. That's the kind of thing you do when college suddenly scares you but you have your college money (I sold a house I'd inherited.)

    Some people will say this isn't something you have to learn how to do, but remember, you're talking about the other side of the world. You have to learn how to stand around upside down without falling off into space. Then there's the walking and talking backward--

    Now I want to go to Canada. I already can speak a passable Canadian. I haven't learned Quebecian, though.

    The main thing I want to learn someday is how to stop procrastinating.

    True story. I bought a book about procrastination but didn't get around to reading it for a year.

    I don't know how to ride a bike. I want to learn but a certain part of my anatomy hasn't been cooperating.
