I learnt to bake !!! I was always of baking.. After 4 failed attempts I finally did it. It was soft and delicious...
Great skill to learn though ! Plus its something that will always come in handy when you want to treat yourself !

Ya it seems so easy when you see others do it, but it is not. My first cake was as hard as a rock, you can break walls with it. As I come to understand, if you miss one step, the end result will be bad.

I started this before lock down, but I started learning Indonesian through duolingo. It's day 155 and I'm feeling WAY More confident in it, and I like studying a new skill. It's good to know what it feels like to be a complete noob, and that actually has helped me make the TB videos better.

I've learned a few new editing tricks. but the biggest thing I've learned, was to keep off social media. The amount of toxicity due to "covidiots" has made me stay off even twitter now, and as a result, other than being on these forums, I've been spending even more time on editing (and watching some editing tutorials)

I guess I'm also learning "Fact checking" skills in terms of social media :joy: and also "diplomacy" skills...

I've been learning a lot about cooking from my girlfriend... I'm a terrible cook beside pasta though LOL. I finally learned to make bacon (it was burnt) and learned to make burgers (they were under-cooked) :(

Im 100% with you on social media. Ive deleted all of mine at the beginning of lockdown and honestly became much happier

Hi, I've learnt a few things, editing and filming skills. I also learnt to cook more and write
That's pretty cool, was there any specific editing and filming skills you've learned? I'm slowly learning more editing skills, but it's mostly flow. I'm watching some editing livestreams (one called "greg from how to drink") it gets me in the mindset for editing.

Just re learning skills mostly, did a lot of editing a few years ago at college and stuff, but forgot it all. It seems to be muscle memory when it comes back
