This one is easy probably easy for anyone who knows me or has been somewhat paying attention to this blog even. I wish I knew how to fluently speak at least one foreign language. This is of course entirely within my capabilities. This isn’t like saying “I wish I knew how to play baseball at a professional level” where my sub-par level of coordination always had me being picked last for sports teams in school. I spent four years learning Spanish in high school but never kept up with it. Over 2021 I made some limited effort, 10-15 minutes most days, of relearning it through DuoLingo. If I spent more like an hour a day I could actually probably be conversant in Spanish by now. I still have visions of what it’d be like to be a polyglot like several friends I know. They flip flop between three or four languages. It’s always an amazing sight for me to see.
