I Don't Wanna

Generally, I am game to learn, or at least try, most things. But the other day I started thinking about things I don't want to learn. Some because they seem like too much work, others because I am afraid, still others because they appear pointless to me.

Here's a short list of things I don't want to, or plan to, learn.

  • Drive a manual transmission
  • Hunt and gut a deer
  • Make a good pie crust
  • Go white water rafting
  • Rebuild a car engine
  • Calculus
  • Eat neatly with chopsticks
  • Play an instrument
  • Chinese
  • Enjoy reality TV
  • Create a YouTube video
  • Twitter.

That's me. What about you? Anything you don't want to learn?


  1. i'm with you on almost all those things. but chopsticks ...those I can do!


  2. I'm surprised to be able to say I've done many of your don't want to's! I don't want to ever take blood. I'd faint!

    Hope your son had a good tie in Missouri

  3. Agreed on most all of those (although I have to admit that I enjoy some reality TV...)!

  4. I'm with you on the deer, calculus, and Twitter. I have discovered a zany reality TV show you might like though - Duck Dynasty. It's not really about ducks, but a Christian family who made their wealth from making duck callers. They are funny and humble and just quirky. I tried it out last night and was surprised I like it!

  5. A lot of your don't wants are things I have done and do want to do. I am totally with you on the reality TV thing. I don't get it and I don't think I really want to either.

    I'm big on learning as much as I can about everything, but I've done Calculus and I've forgotten it and I don't ever plan on relearning it.

  6. I can do some of these things but I'm with you REALLY with you on reality TV!
