Two weeks ago the writer’s workshop gave a me a chance to list ten things I know how to do. This week I’m listing ten things I don’t know how to do, because one of the prompts suggests I should.
1.) Write a post that begins and ends with the same line.
2.) Book review!
3.) 10 things you don’t know how to do.
4.) Write a blog post inspired by the word: Dance.
5.) Something you ate…
3.) 10 things you don’t know how t do.
Two weeks ago I used ten things that first came to my mind and so shall it be this time around too.
I don’t know how to…
1. … snap my fingers
I know the technique, but usually I can’t make any sound. I don’t know why, it’s just something I can not do.
2. … whistle.
This is something I would love to be able to do, but for some reason when I try to whistle I just end up blowing air. There are times when some sort of whistling action happens, but I usually get scared of the unusual sound coming out of me and it stops.
3. … fix a car.
If my car breaks down on the street, I have absolutely no idea what to do. I know how drive and how to to get gas and add water to the windshield washer, but pretty much everything else involving cars is a mystery to me.
4. … get things done on time.
I’m suffering of a serious case of procrastination. I do everything I can at the last minute. I usually make it all OK by saying I work better under pressure, but I’ve started to doubt that lately…
5. … photoshop.
I’m not sure if I even want to, really, but sometimes it would be kinda cool to be able to make crazy pictures like this chick-bunny – chinny?
6. … program computer.
What I mean is, I don’t know how to program cool computer things like games or webpages. For example I would love to know how to make a customised theme for my blog, because as much as I like the one I use now, I feel that it doesn’t really show who I am.
7. … make gifs.
I love gifs and I have no idea how people make them.
8. … understand people who like coconut water.
I’ve heard it’s the most amazing thing there is; delicious and healthy and all of those things. I tried it once and it was so disgusting I gagged. It could be that I tried a brand that just isn’t that good, but it was just so bad that I’m scared to even think about trying another brand.
9. … play ice hockey.
I’m not that good of a skater either, but with a stick in my hand I’m completely useless. I tried playing ice hockey on a playstation once as well and I was just as bad player as I am in real life.
10. … cut a straight line.
I make a lot of cards for different holidays and birthdays etc. I don’t have any fancy paper cutters, so I need to rely on my ability to use scissors. Thank heavens I know I to use scissors, but somehow I never cut anything straight.
What sort of thing you don’t know how to do? What things would you want to learn how to do the most?
