A question for you...what would you love to study if you could choose anything?

This may be seen as an act of procrastination.... and it probably is... but I recently asked a few people what they would choose to study if they could learn something new. It was interesting to hear the responses.Many people understood me to mean an academic subject or something that would help them earn more money. I want to ask the same question to you out there.What would you choose to study if you could learn something new?

Think outside the box... be honest. If you could learn anything new, without the worry of cost or time, anything in the world... what would it be?

I have been watching Michel Roux' programme about service and I think that I would love to really know about wines. Not in a pretentious way to impress people, but in the comfortable, ancient way, possessed, for example, by an old French vineyard worker. Someone who has been around wines all their life, who knows the subtle flavours, the origins of the different vintages...

Or maybe I could take a year out and learn to ski really well. Or learn sign language... Maybe I could learn to sculpt... or make jewellery...

I don't know. I would love to hear your thoughts.

I would like to learn another language really well, Spanish probably. Well enough that I could think in it. I would also like to learn Welsh. I am half welsh and love hearing people speak it. I would also like to learn the Argentine Tango & Flamenco it would need to be taught by a swarthy sexy Spaniard though to make the experience truly authentic, and in spain too. Too much to ask maybe!

I would love to be able to swoop in and grant your wishes.

Gail, I am with you on the art and dance. Maybe we could get together with Studentmum in Spain?! I would LOVE to learn the Argentine tango from a Spaniard, in Spain!!

None of these are too much to ask and, actually, they are all attainable ... just!

Thanks for answering!! xx
