Taking the first step

“The secret of getting things done is to act.” – Dante Alighieri

Over the past few years, I’ve been slowly accumulating a list of things that I want to do and learn. Some may call it a bucket list of sorts.

The list is starting to become a bit lengthy, but I am well aware that many of the things are easy to do and complete. I just need to make the effort and do it.

So I’ve decided to dive right in and use this blog to document my experiences.

The first one: take sewing lessons.

Deciding to actually go through with it and then deciding where to take lessons were hard decisions to make. My mother is a sewer and so is a friend of mine, but when it came down to asking them to teach me, I knew the main issue would be timing.

It’s a lot easier and convenient to take classes close to where I live – worth the price I’m about to pay.

I’m actually quite excited about it and my first class is in a few weeks. Learning to sew may not be the hippest or most exciting thing, but I think it’s kinda cool. It’s a skill that I’ve always wanted to learn (beyond the basics of fixing a button) and who knows, I may discover a passion I never thought I had.

Plus I’ll finally be able to hem all my clothes now – a vital skill for someone as short as I am.

I’ll keep you posted on my progress and I’ll share what I tackle next on my list.
