Friday Five: Things I Wish I Knew How to Do

1. Any winter sport. I live in Canada, and there is likely snow on the ground eight months out of the year. I’m not saying that I would enjoy being on a ski hill all day, or skating around a pond all afternoon, but I feel like these are skills I should have some mastery of. The hard truth is I have none of either.

2. Play an instrument. My husband can play the violin. If I knew how to play something, maybe we could start a really crappy band.

3. Apply make up properly. Seriously – I have no clue how to do anything to make my face look better. I can put on mascara if absolutely required, and lipstick, but really that’s it. Imagine how hot I would be if I knew what the hell foundation was and how to properly apply blush?

4. Make croissants. Seriously, why is this such a challenge?

5. Stick with a hobby for more than two months. Especially when they are expensive hobbies like photography.


  1. i wish i knew how to, simple stuff, like the button for example that just popped off my shorts. i wish i knew how to sew that back on. that would be useful.

  2. i wish i knew how to teleport. that would save me huge amounts of time and grief.
