Tell the story of trying to learn a new talent or hobby that you only pursued briefly.
1.) My oldest was once diagnosed with a “gluten sensitivity”. In my attempt to go gluten free I was frustrated with the lack of easy recipes and gluten free food. I decided to start a cookbook for gluten free beginners! I would teach the WORLD! But first I had to teach myself…and then I learned the word “book proposal” and found that you actually have to have something in writing in order to “propose” it to anyone and with that I quickly lost interest.
2.) I once learned to crochet and decided I could easily make blankets for everyone I knew for the rest of my life. But the ends of the blankets looked more like triangles than perfect rectangles so I gave up.
3.) I became a scrapbooker back in 2004 to document my first pregnancy and completed an entire first scrapbook to show how I met my husband. When it came time to start the “pregnancy” scrapbook I decided to have a baby instead and then scrapbooking was over. I still have all of the tools though…because you just never know when the scrapbooking bug might hit again.
4.) In an effort to slim down and get healthy I decided to take on Jillian’s 30 Day Shred. I got to day 7.
5.) I decided to become a PTA mom when a neighbor approached me about an upcoming meeting at the school. I told her I would go, but then forgot…and really who has time for meetings at 6pm (or ever) anyway?
6.) Last Summer I decided I was going to become a gardener. I wanted a hat, some matching gloves and I wanted to walk around with a watering can as giant tomatoes bloomed. But it was not to be. I planted tomatoes in a pot and was so proud of how they were growing! Tons of cherry tomatoes blossomed and the plant grew and grew and I watered it…and then the whole damn thing snapped in half.
It’s kind of good none of those things ever panned out for me though…because than I wouldn’t have any time to pursue my dream of becoming the greatest equestrian horse jumper that ever lived.
Wish me luck!!
