I'll go first... I learned two things this past year that were fun but challenging:

👨‍💻 Elixir — the coding language this site is built in (thanks to @mplatts & @daamsie)
🏄‍♂️ Wingsurfing (self taught)

It's not really a learned skill, but I've been dedicating most of my learning time in the last couple of months in exploring everything web3 related. Also with connections to the travel industry.

A new music genre that I started listening - Jazz 🎺

Rolled in the LCA last year. A complete course by Christian Leblanc! I learned how to shoot, edit and improve pictures in lightroom, improved my editing skills and got to learn how to post them efficiently. Feeling blessed to be able to do it in a good way now!

The useless one - making the best french omelette in the world. Sounds silly but I tried it over 50 times(a couple of times every week for the whole family) and can now safely challenge any professional chef to it now. My inspiration was a very old video by Jaque Peppin on youtube(though I did check out many others' versions since).

The important one - being a father. My girl turns 1 this month and I think I learn more from her every day than anything else I do.

Ooooh this past year has been a big year in drones for me. But I shifted to try to take on the hardest drone to fly (the first person view or "FPV" drone). WOOOO.. a LOT of dramamine later... I still get VERY sick every time I fly. But it's fun.

Oh as i had to produce content and PR to grow awareness on Melanin Travels Magic, I had to learn blog and article writing online and offline, interview skills, pitching media.

Hi,
I was looking the way to improve my spanish persuasive texts for my website.
I study and read a lot about copywriting, and I start working as a copywriter for other people and bussiness.
Very happy about that.

Two things..

* Coding in Elixir - to help build this site. It's a really enjoyable language to work in.
* Playing the piano. Shout out to Simply Piano for that one. I did lessons a very long time ago (when I was about 8 years old), so I had some very basic knowledge. Going back as an adult to learn an instrument has been quite satisfying.

This year I'm trying to learn oil painting.

Content strategy, I freelance

I've been learning how to play the ukulele & trying to take my piano skills to the next level.

Another thing I've been studying is practicing an anti-inflammatory diet & movements (exercises on land and water) to help strengthen the core and spine.
