This past year has been a very rough one. I have been spending
a lot most of my time taking care of everyone else, not to mention working and taking the maximum units at school. After a while, it really starts to take a toll on you. The other day someone asked me what my hobbies are and I just stood there because I could not think of an answer. The question threw me off because I hadn't realized how little time I take for myself, to do things that I like and want to do.
I am a little late to the game, but The Everygirl has a decided that the 30-day Challenge for September is self-improvement and growth. Once again, Danielle and Alaina know exactly what I need before even I do. There are things I have been wanting to learn for months, years even, but never had the time to do them. My challenge is going to take longer than 30 days, mainly because I want to do so many things.
1. Learn photoshop.
This is something I have been thinking about for the past few years. It is very good tool to have for the future and I think it would improve my blog as well.
2. Learn how to sew.
I have wanted to learn how to sew since I was 5 years old and would watch my mom make my ice skating costumes. 19 years later and I still haven't learned how to sew yet. But I have a few DIYs I want to do that require sewing.
3. Learn how to cook better.
I can bake with the best of them. My cooking skills however are very limited and I don't even know how to barbecue. I will admit that after my dad's barbecue singed my eyebrows as a little kid I stay far away from it.
4. Learn how to code.
I would love to be able to build my blog myself. As of now, I am afraid to change anything in case I somehow mess everything up. I think it would be amazing to be able to be able to look at my blog and know that I created it.
5. Learn how to watercolor.
My amazing friend Shay is so talented at this and I wish I had her skills. I think this is something I can practice and not totally suck at it.
