Today I have thought about a couple of things I would love to be able to do and I want to share these thoughts with you. Some are really ridiculous, some serious.
I wish I could...
I love to sing. A lot. But I always do it when nobody can hear me. There are only two exceptions: David and my Dad. I don't feel ashamed to sing in front of them but their reactions are totally different. David is a sweetheart and always tells me that I have my nice voice. My Dad always says: Der Rabe ist kein Singvogel. Which means "The raven isn't a singing bird. I am terrible. I know it. David has such an amazing voice and I have to say that I am a little jealous.
... not be afraid of deep water
I would love to go swimming. I think the last I went swimming was when I was 14 and I was scared to death. Even swimming pools freak me out. I think I can swim, I was able to when I was a kid but I haven't tried it since so maybe I unlearned it. It is really bad, I start to panic when I am in the water and then I am unable to move. I spent my last (and only) beach vacation on an air mattress 1m away from the beach. It is just too scary.
At gym class in school we went swimming for a while and I remember that I was always sick. I never participated. My mom had to excuse me and my teacher got really mad. I loved all other kinds of sport and was good at it but I never showed up when we went swimming.
That's how a terrified smile looks. It is the only picture of me in a pool. I hate that picture because I look so ugly in it plus it looks like I lost my bikini top. But I thought I should share it with you.
... be more elegant
Sometimes I really feel like a Trampel. I think the American expression for that would be "klutz". I think David once used that word to describe me. But yeah, I always break things, fall over my own feet, I drop things, I forget things that I planned to do....I am definitely not a lady. And I can drink like an Irish pub goer. At least I can walk in heels.
.... rescue all animals
This actually depresses me a lot. Sometimes I close my eyes and see pictures of abused animals appear. It is terrible. I really don't know how to handle this because it makes me so sad and desperate. Sometimes I really don't know how to live with all the animal cruelty. I am sure I am not the only one who feels like that so how do you handle this?
... speak all languages
There are so many languages I would love to learn and I wish I'd have the time to do it. It would be awesome to speak at least Spanish, Icelandic, Dutch, Italian, Swedish, Hindi and French. I do speak a little French and I can understand a little Italian but that's it.
... travel back in time
and save my Mom's life.
What are the things you would love to be able to do? Have a great Wednesday!
