Yeah, me too. I’ve been meaning to take dance lessons for a number of years now, and I’ve never gotten around to it. Until then I just do the Dead Fish Flop, made famous by countless caucasians such as myself.
Another big one for me is math. It’s always been a problem for me. I blew major dogs in high school math class, and wasn’t any better in college calc. A few years ago, I decided to teach myself as much as I could about algebra, and I started with a textbook. I wound up liking it quite a bit. It was fun to see the numbers and letters dance around on the page, and when I solved a complicated problem I got a little inner thrill. I got all the way through algebra and trig, and I even taught myself a little calculus using an old textbook I picked up at a yard sale. I was tres proud of myself.
I’m still not a natural, though. I forgot pretty much all my calc as soon as I stopped studying. It took me longer to get the basics down than it would have for a math whiz or even a normal person, and I needed to work at it a lot to see progress. Still, I can definitely see why people get so far into it. It’s fascinating. I never had a problem spending hours on my off time and weekends going through the books and messageboards. It also came in handy when I had to study for the GRE’s.
