Day 9: What Do You Wish You Were Good At?
For more info on the 30 Day Blog challenge, click here.

Growing up in Detroit, the “Motor City”, the recognized “Auto Capital Of The World”, you are expected to either:

A. Own A Car OR

B. Know How To Fix Them

Well, I’ve gotten the ownership thing down to a science, and since my 16th birthday, I’ve changed cars at least once every 2-3 years! However, fixing them, I’ve pretty much shied away from! So I wish I was good at fixing cars … at leas so that I can avoid costly trips to the mechanic!

It’s not that I’m terrible at it or anything…but it’s just the way my bear paws are setup, getting into an small spaces is not feasible! So, since I’ve never tried to do it, I haven’t taken the time to learn it either! The other problem I’ve had with fixing cars is remembering all of the things it takes to fix each type of car. My memory already doesn’t serve me, so trying to commit something to it that I will probably not actually do…is again, futile!

One thing I am good at with cars though, is brakes and wheel components! I have changed brake pads, rotors, calipers and bearings. So at least I have that! Until my wish ever comes true, or they make fixing cars as easy as putting together computers…then you’ll just have to find me posted up at your local mechanic shop!

What do you find yourself struggling with, that you wish you could be better at?
