    Default Hardest skill

    What would you say is the hardest skill you've ever mastered?
    It could be either intellectual or physical. Just name the one subject you've put a lot of work into and that you're now proud of.

    Cool

    Trolling, playing on nerves and making a dead bbs alive.

    Really? I'd always thought you were a natural.

    Physically - painting, I guess. I always loved drawing and art, and despite a lot of doubt (in myself and by others (namely my mom)), I am now selling paintings whenever I get the time (and motivation!). I still have confidence issues here, and don't really know how much I should charge, but I'm getting there. And it's a lovely feeling, someone paying for a painting you did!


    Intellectually - Over the summer I had to relearn Old English (as I had only kind of learned it when I was 19), and now I'm teaching it to 2nd year university students and hoping to God they don't ask me something I don't know. I don't think I ever had a great flare for languages, but I've managed to get a pretty good grasp at this.

    *flair

    My dichotomy was a tad silly. Either way, there's a good deal to be said about the intellectual side of painting, I think...

    As a young teacher, I don't see the shame in not knowing something you're asked. Relax.

    Running. I'm not really good at it but it gets better and better and I enjoy it more and more. Maybe I'm not able
    to run a marathon yet but hopefully someday I'll get there.
    Turn the lights on.

    When it comes to jogging and long-distance running I'm hopeless. A 10-min trot leaves me breathing like an asthmatic.

    However I've always been a fast sprinter. I suppose it all comes down to natural aptitudes... you just have to take the path of least resistance.

    Note: I've never smoked, however I did have asthma as a child. It's gone, now, but I think it left my lungs weakish... that's the only reason I can see, that and people say you have to learn to breathe, perhaps I've never truly learnt and my breath is too erratic or what have you.
