On my mind

On my mind

Ah, the first post.  I’m sure that most new bloggers feel awkward writing this post, at least I hope so, or else I’ll suddenly feel very alone.  It’s just a weird thing, you want to write something that people will want to read, yet, since the post is brand spankin’ new, there’s nobody out there to read it.  Hmm.

I guess I might as well get right now to business.  If this blog is to be what I hope it will be, I need to get organized about what I want to learn about. Therefore… a list! (I love lists btw, just so you know)

Things I want to learn/know more about/get good at:

  • Photography – right now I am lusting after the Nikon D5100.  Problem is, I don’t have a job right now, since we only moved here a short while ago, so no job = no spending money = no snazzy new camera for me.  Soon though, oh yes, soon I shall find a job, and money, and buy the pretty camera and lenses I currently have my heart set on.  Then, the learning is ON!
  • Japanese – I did about 5 lessons in the Pimsleur course and I actually liked them a lot.  Then, I did what I usually do and got distracted and never went back.  I’d still love to learn more languages though, and Japanese will be my starting point.
  • Quilting – I have an awful lot of fabric and I love blankets.  Match made in Heaven if you ask me.  Never quilted before, so this one will be a completely new adventure.
  • Cake Decorating – Already been through a pretty major cake decorating obsession, which, you guessed it, fizzled.  I’d like to practice enough at it to impress myself (and sure, others.)
  • How to make a blog that at least a few people read. Have to keep myself motivated. By the way, I just figured out how to put a “featured photo” in a with a blog post, so that’s baby chocolate mustache me that you’re looking at. You’re welcome.

I could keep going forever, but I think that’s enough for just now.  If anyone is reading this (who isn’t a spammer or a computer program linking spam), what are you interested in learning more about in your own life?
