I've had a one track mind for the past few days. I've been twisting and turning the Rubik's cube any chance I get. And now, finally, I can solve it. YAY! I'm definitely not a speed solver (I think the record is something around 10 seconds) but I am getting it solved. Anyway, I learned the technique online at this site.
I enjoyed the challenge with the cube and now I'm going to try to learn chess. Online of course. Its been such a long time since I've learned something (I'm not talking about learning things to do with parenting) that I forgot how much fun it is. Chess is something that I have zero knowledge of. I don't know how the pieces move or what the rules are. All I know is that people say "Check" when they are nearly winning and "Checkmate" when they actually win.
So why chess? I'd like to say that my sole motivation is to learn something new. But, its also because I want to teach Aaron (eventually). I don't want to come across as one of those mothers who are over eager about making their children brainy but I do want to do fun things that will help his brain develop as well. Chess might teach him strategy and I did hear that its fun as well. Right?
Anyway, if chess isn't fun enough, I'm also trying to learn how to juggle.
Any other suggestions for things I can learn on the internet?
