So while I have been on holiday, I have been to the dentist, been to the hospital, tried to make a start on the Christmas Shopping, redecorated my house on Animal Crossing New Leaf, tried to look for a new job and updated my iPhone to iOS7 – as well as some other things in between. Oh and keeping up the blog challenge, of course.
Damn I’ve been productive.
There still is a lot more that I could do over the next few days, it’s just that I don’t know what. I had thought about trying to learn a new skill while I was off. I was going to look at GIMP again for the first time in ages and see if I could get my head around it. In fact I did and I still can’t get to grips with it, which is fine. There are other photo editors available which are so much bloody easier.
I even thought about trying to learn a musical instrument – or at the very least reacquainting myself with one of the instruments we have at home that I briefly fiddled about with before discarding out of frustration and/or boredom. Could have dug out the keyboard we had as a kid, or the harmonica I had as a youngster and see if I learn to play something other than “When the Saints Go Marching In” – the only song that the booklet that came with it showed you how to play. Of course, I wouldn’t be able to become an expert in such a short space of time but it would be another hobby, and I could do with more hobbies. Other than this of course.
On another note, when I grow up, I want to be able to build Lego models like these:
