I dont compose that's what Im saying


Who is going to say their music is better than Chopin? Or a better method than Chopin? Im not. What Im saying is you sound like all the people who make music like math. I'm not sure how we even got here, but that was my point all along.


Loosen up over it. You cant read music but that's fine. Doesn't change anything. Play whatever. Thats the fun of music.


Ah, I apologize for pressing it Perhaps I just misunderstood you lol. Or maybe we misunderstood each other.

Perhaps music is like math to me, though. I find them beautiful in their intricacy. Perhaps that's why i'm partially studying the former and wish to learn more about the latter.

And I agree that playing is fun. I wouldn't even touch the violin if I didn't find it enjoyable. In fact, I find it more enjoyable than what i'm currently studying, and sometimes I regret not pursuing music more rigorously because I find it so enjoyable.

Oh - but I can read music though. Quite easily. I just can't sightread because my eyes are bad. But that hasn't stopped me ~ again, because I love music and find it fun

I've been a student of the WWII Pacific Theater for 20 years. I don't know everything, but I have a good grasp of it. I'd love to know more. I had the opportunity to talk to both a Japanese and an American soldier from WWII to get both perspectives. Fascinating. The world was so different then. It's hard to believe it's within living memory. I would love to know more about the Pacific Theater. It's been my interest for a long time.

As a side note, if anyone is interested in learning about programming in C# or Java, let me know, ok? I don't mind teaching on the side. But if you invent the next Candy Crush, at least give me a guest appearance.

I'd like to know more about technology. I'm not a tech-zombie who's glued to their smartphone or tablet. And I wouldn't want to be either. But it would help to know a little more than I do. Knowing how to download visual novels in english would help.

Biology.

It's not I can't learn biology, it's just a huge commitment. Coming from a physics background, my approach to science often de-emphasizes memorization while at the same time being infused with general scientific rigor. Worse yet, biology is extremely relevant to science as a whole--mostly by virtue of being the most active area of research. However, the fact that biology requires signification memorization in order to understand its concepts (simply because it's hard to describe the functions of a cell without referring to its organelles, so you need to know what the organelles are before you can understand anything), learning it is something that will take some time. I do want to learn what's typical of a year-long General Biology course, it's just something I've never really a point of actively pursuing because it'll take a significant amount of my time.

I would love if I could actually understand math, its the subject I have the hardest time with in school.. I really study and all, I just wish that I could grasp the concepts better.

Biology.

I have a dream of creating a living human from the recycled tissue of cadavers. Unfortunately I know nothing about biology or medicine or sewing. It's just been a big fruitless mess so far.

Drawing and storytelling.

When I see concept art, I open up my Photoshop, and then realize I don't know how to draw again.

I think I'm decent at storytelling, because my language skills are a little above average (maybe), and I have acting classes at my school, but I want to know more, still.

I love character design, and stories, and if I was better in at minimum the drawing department I could probably manage it.

Computer programming, like coding. (C++, HTML, etc...)

Would definitely make my life easier to find a job instead of going through all the classes just to learn it before finding a job.
My friend does a lot of coding for fun but already found a decent job in the field without REAL LIFE experience, but I guess as long as his skill impress the managers, I guess he can get a job like that.

Or piano. Although I quit when I was younger (WHY MY YOUNGER SELF??) so I just abandoned such a good career. Could have joined an orchestra or something because I was already competing in my community.

I suppose if it had to be anything, probably coding and other software applications, specifically game design.

Now I go to college for engineering, and we do have a few code based mathematical programs that we have to use, but beyond using just those, i know nothing. One of my friends up at the university is going for a bachelors degree in computer science and she mostly has that influence from her dad who works for dell out in Silicon Valley. We can be eating lunch in the cafeteria or food court and she'll just pull out her little netbook and start typing away, working on an assignment using html or C++ or python or whatever sortof coding or programming rigmarole she happens to be working with at the time. I just take one peak at her screen and i think to myself, 'How could spending any amount of time working with this be at all enjoyable to someone, let alone be something that they'd want to do for their whole life' But she speaks about what she's doing with such enthusiasm and i can't help but wonder if its something that i should give a try or not.

Again, i only know the very basics of how to work a computer, any time someone asks me to help them with a computer problem i usually go in blind and just use process of elimination to get the damn thing working and pretend that i know what i'm doing. But there have been times when i play a computer game or a console game and am just utterly floored by everything that is put into it and i would really love to know what all work goes into producing something like it and can only imagine the level of experience required.
