I surveyed what I like and what I am good at. Knitting and other crafty things are not my cup of tea. I am not dexterous enough and have little patience with learning. Nor should I be left alone with a glue gun. So those items are out. Cake decorating does sound fun, but then I would have to eat the cake which is not a good idea. So I am planning on taking time for myself a few times a week to work on my Chinese again, take some time to workout, and write. I really love to write. So much so that I joined a writers club in college. So I am looking to start one again. Or possibly join one if no one I know is interested. It is a lot like a book club you meet a couple times a month at a house or coffee shop. You pick a topic set a timer and write. Then everyone reads what they wrote and discuss. A writing group is fun and helpful because you see how you can be a better writer, mistakes you are making, where your strengths are at. Plus, you meet people and really find out about them. It is challenging and intimidating to read your work aloud, I think this is really what I need right now. So if you live around here and want to join me on this adventure let me know. I am speaking to the lurkers as well.
