things-i-wish-were/could do-but-not-really list

i just couldn't help myself! after blogging my last post, i thought of a million lists i want to write and just have to post one before i go do something related to school, like read tristram shandy (there's a list waiting to happen--reasons i do/do not like that book)

{side note: i really like my life, so this is actually a fun list, not at all a sad/pity me list}

this could probably also be titled: things-i-daydream-about list.

1) An artist--the painting/drawing kind. Wouldn't it be so great to be able to create like that? How cool would that be?! How does it happen? What does it feel like?

2) Write a novel. How great would that be? To spend ones time thinking about how to put a plot together and fleshing out characters and stuff. I think I would want to be a fun-read novelist. Like a Harry Potter writer or a really clever and funny mystery novelist, like Jasper Fforde.

3) Olympic athlete. Preferably an ice skater. Or a swimmer. Or a gymnist.

4) A professional musician--a classical one. like a pianist. or a violinist.

5) Have a beautiful singing voice.

6) Grow thick, long, curly hair.

7) Speak lots of languages--like Welsh, French, Scots, German, Spanish, Italian, and Latin. Maybe Portuguese. And definitely Arabic.

8) Write calligraphy.

9) Speak with an accent.

10) Make a film! (I want to do this so badly!) And be able to act.

ahhh, good times. back to the infamous tristram.

Love the lists! I did this once for pages and pages in my journal in high school...just couldn't stop. On the artist thing--I just wonder how it would be to be able to compose music---I just can't get my head around that. I tried my hand at it once--very bad move.
