I would love to be a good singer or a good football (soccer for americans) player, because here in Europe football moves mountains of people.

People cheering for my name on stadiums and the honor of representing my country on a world cup would be something I would really appreciate, it would give me an unexplainable feeling of joy.

And singing because I love music and I would love to carry my emotions to other people, someone like Bruno Mars or Michael Jackson (I won't discuss tastes, we are free to like whoever we do). The people that go through X-Factor, Britain's Got Talent and others (those who really know how to sing) make people feel good, and that feeling of having people to like you and to cheer for you is amazing, because they like you for something you do.

And what about you? If you could be really good at something, what would it be?

Definitely music. I wish I could sing and make music. I am actually working on it although singing will never be my thing. I would also love to be able to just talk to girl without being a pansy.

Suppose the one thing I would like to be good at is art, though I did kind of already start on that last month.

Wish I was good at art. I can't do anything artistic. I always had my mother do the science board projects in school - I presented the information/research, but Mom always did the decorating and set up.

I'd like to be good enough at physics that I could get a job in the field.

Most people who know me think I have a textbook understand of the subject, but I actually know real physicists and there's no way.

Don't feel bad: even my stick figures are disproportionate.

Unless you already speak a latin derived language you can forget it - unless you live in a latin nation.

It'd have to be something I have no interest in learning myself. Maybe dancing. Can't understand the desire to "learn" such a thing.

I'd like to be either really knowledgable in one other language or else be able to learn other languages easily.

Probably music. Preferably writing. I have a bit of an aptitude for writing, I just kinda wish I could be like Hemingway, or like Langston Hughes, you know.

I came in here wanting to say singing, because I'm absolutely awful at it and I'd love to be able to sing and not be completely embarrassed every single time. Now though, I've got a ton of ideas and am having difficulty choosing. I suppose it would be either languages (because the ability to speak to people of different cultures all over the world would be so amazing and enabling), or physics (because very few things are more interesting to me).

I already have a good work ethic to be satsifactory or better at just about every other aspect of my life, except my personal, take-care-of-myself life.

Public speaking, being able to accurately convey my ideas to people, other than in written form, seems like a neat skill to have.

Driving racecars. I already enjoy doing it and am good at it, if I were good enough to make a decent living doing that then I'd be pretty content with my life.

I was blessed with musical skills, that I have turned into a career. Being able to sing songs and have people feel happy, is probably one of the greatest feelings.

If I had to choose something else?

First thing that popped in my brain was Theft. lol. Then you could get whatever you wanted. But actually? Maybe cooking. Or maybe, language. Being a linguist would be cool.

Math. I am already good at it. I just would want to be genius at it.

Proficient, I should say. Never have taken Calculus 2 or anything like that.
