#January Joy: Learn something new
I'm a little bit late, but finally a #January Joy challenge that I am actually taking. I just enrolled for my Dutch driving license theory exam yesterday... and I will do it sooner than I thought. (Having a deadline always helps with making me getting stuff done). Technically, this is not learning something completely new, because I do have a Mexican driving license, but the truth is I have not driven a car (except on particular occasions) since I was 19 and that's a long time. So I am taking lessons and preparing the exam... which involves a whole new set of traffic rules and different signs. It is not the most exciting subject to study, but being able to drive in Europe is something that I really need to do, it will hopefully help in the job search, it will allow us to take longer road trips because we'll be able to take turns driving and it is simply a handy skill to have.
I also want to learn to crochet, but I am not handy at all, so that means I will need someone to teach me. But... I found a group of Mexican girls that meet every now and then and craft together, so I hopefully will be able to join them.
Are you intending to learn anything new this year?
