2014 is the year of new skills for me. I set out to make a list of 12 new skills to learn… one each month. January’s skill was crochet.
… and knitting.
And then there was math.
Remember, I’m in college.
And it is hard.
I am not smarter than a 5th grader!
That’s right, folks! I am doing 5th grade math in college and I’m having a hard time with it.
Fractions, improper fractions, decimals, multiplying fractions, common denominators… who needs ‘em? Actually, I’ve had a lot of fun with it! Never thought I could like that stuff. The story problems on the other hand…. They are going to be the death of me. No matter how hard I try I just can’t make them fun. How am I supposed to know how many miles I can go per dollar if gas costs $3.20 per gallon and I can go 198 miles on 13 gallons of gas?
So, the knitting didn’t happen… yet. But I did manage to crochet a couple of projects. And when I did, I wondered why in the world I didn’t learn this skill sooner. It’s pretty darn fun!
Whoops, how did that one get in there?
February’s skill is sewing. Question is… what should I make? I’m going to have to get my girls to teach me how to use the sewing machine. For real… I know next to nothing. :)
