There are at least a thousand things I would like to learn during my lifetime. A thousand may seem like an exaggeration, but I have a fascination with learning new things. I want to learn how to code a website, speak Dutch fluently, play ballads on a guitar, and many other things. However, if I was forced to pick just one new skill, I would choose sewing. What, sewing!?! Yes, I would choose sewing.
The major reason behind my decision is that for such a practical skill I can use every day, I received very limited exposure as a child. The first item I tried to sew myself was a pillow. It was so lump-sided and uneven, the perfectionist within me threw the pillow across the room and vowed to never sew again. However, as I got older and my passion for fashion evolved, I wished I would have continued to learn that craft correctly. Who knows if I could have saved hundreds if not thousands of dollars in clothing, but anyway it is never too late to learn something new, right?

To go from hotdogs-every-night to sushi-sometimes, you must put in grueling hours of work into jobs that require you to have absolutely zero experience, you can find ‘em in a couple fabulous locations. A lot of them pay minimum wage, a lucky and connecting few of us will climb to making $10 an hour, the rest of us will imagine the glory and save up for next year’s textbooks. So, without ...
