The wish list!

At this unearthly hour, I’m banging my head in frustration because I’m trying to design a website, and facing roadblocks. The biggest roadblock is … I don’t know website designing. :|


So, I decided to give up on designing for a while, and think about other such things that are on my wishlist. Skills I wish I had…


a) Singing – If I begin to sing, anyone with even the faintest notions of harming me will run for his/her life. So, I can sing to save my life. Though, it would’ve helped my cause better, if I could sing better.


b) Dancing – Yes, we’re broaching a very touchy topic now. With a track record of maiming several dance partner, and causing them grievous injuries, I’m a dangerous chap to dance with. On the positive side, I can only improve.


c) Writing – Hmmm, getting a bit on the ‘artistic’ side, eh? I shall consider myself a writer of note, the day I can regale people with humour of the quality of P.G. Wodehouse, or entertain them with poetry that has a lyrical quality like that of Alfred Noyes. Though, I guess I can write better than many ‘wannabes’.


d) Sketching – Now, this one will probably take multiple lifetimes to learn. It would be an understatement to say that I’m horrible at it. It’s not like I want to develop into a Picasso or a Rembrandt, but just that I’d like to be able to express myself visually. Anyway, no further discussions on this one.


e) Web designing – This is what started this post! And it is just reminding me that I’ve not made any progress on that front. I think I shall get going. Thankfully, you will not have to ‘evaluate’ most of the above skills (or the lack of them) for me. But, if and when I manage this last item, I shall certainly expect you to.

Imagine being one who does not have any of these skills either and CANNOT draw to save her life.... and taking a paper in visual communication worth 2 credits. Life can be a bitch with these things. :|

About your singing and dancing skills... you've managed to be pretty discreet about them. So I won't comment. :)

Aarbee, I get the picture... and as far as being discreet goes, I'll just say, "Discretion is the better part of valour."

Sauron said...

Tangerine, most of your post was pretty encouraging, except for the Engg. Drawing bit.

You see, I sucked at that too!!
