Tengo la mala costumbre de pensar que si hago algo con pasión y con ganas, voy a ser buena en ello de la noche a la mañana. Me pasa constantemente con la gran mayoría de aficiones que voy acumulando: bordar, coser, tocar la guitarra, hacer pendientes y anillos, cantar y un largo etcétera. Lo que casualmente ignoro es que uno no se puede convertir en ‘bueno’ si no practica.

If you still haven’t heard of the new social media app TikTok you really must have been living under a rock.
