I'd like to...

Yesterday I was thinking of things I wish I could do, knew how to do, could learn, etc. Some of these I probably *could* do, I just don't know how likely it is.


1. Learn to sew. Beyond just putting on buttons, fixing bad seams, and making crappy pillows and quilts. Would love to be able to use a sewing machine and do up some funky clothes. I love fabric and have idea for clothes, but can't sew. Or at least, I haven't the tools or the expertise.

2. Speak some Spanish. Or French. Spanish, because it's becoming a pressing need with all the Spanish-speakers everywhere (including the boys who talk in Spanish to gossip and share secrets in front of me). French so I can potentially get by enough to live or work in Montreal.

3. Go on a nice camping trip or at least go camping regularly. I grew up with wilderness canoe camping and would love, love, love to get back into doing that type of outdoorsy stuff. Canoeing, hiking, hanging out in the woods, backpacking, climbing mountains, swimming in mountain streams! Alas, I live in a city, without a car or gear to do this. And not really many friends who'd go with. So many people say they will NEVER go camping.

4. Act in some community theater. I actually have acting experience, both as a kid and older. I'm very natural on stage, find it easy to become somebody else. But eeeeeeh, I have too much going on in my life already at the moment. So I will for now stick with being voice talent for podcasts. (Maybe I can do some dramatic podcasts?)

5. Model. For someplace that does funky-ass clothes. For women who are above Size 10. Of course, I need to continue to drop the lbs. until I no longer have muffin-top and such going on. Tooth-whitener would also help.
