I don't want to go to Hawaii but I sure would like to learn how to hula

Hawaii is supposed to be paradise.  I don't want paradise.  Ok, actually to travel anywhere would be nice but Hawaii has never been top on my list of places to visit.  Not sure why, it's just not.  Like, I wouldn't save to go there but I wouldn't turn down a trip for 2 to the island of Oahu if I won it on The Price is Right.  Just sayin.

But I'd like to learn how to hula.  Kind of like Jennifer Aniston in "Just go with it".  Except that wasn't really a hula.  I have no idea where I'm going with this....

Anyway, maybe it's just the idea of trying something different that appeals to me. 

The family that I belong to is pretty artistic.  Some knew it right away and have always lived with that knowledge and some are just discovering it later in life.  My sister and I were commenting on the fact that we kind of drew the short stick when it came to getting the creative gene.   Mostly I'm ok with that because I like to dabble in all kinds of things.  The ideas in my head are good but my implementation sucks.  I've tried to paint by numbers but kind of even mess that up.  It never looks as good as it does on the cover.  Sigh.

Clearly artistic pursuits are probably not in my best interest.  Probably not in your best interest either if you are on the receiving end of what I try to create.  With that being said, I'm a total sucker for handmade stuff from anyone.  I have a crystal rock from a kit that was given to me by a 6th grade student 2 years ago and it still sits in the window of my office.  He's surprised I still have it.  I still have stuff from my kids, too, but we won't talk about that because probably it boarders on a hoarding situation.

So, back to the something different.  I really like being in my comfort zone so it's hard to say what it would take to make me get out of it and try something different.  But I bore easily.  On the other hand I'm a curious kind of person so ....  I'm kind of exhausting myself just thinking about this. 

I'll think on it some more.  And if you have any suggestions, please feel free to tell me!!!
