Simple Skills, Awesome Results!

When Did You Last Learn Something New?

What was the last “skill” you taught yourself? I’m not talking anything academic or sporty here – just something simple that you can use as a party trick.

Recently, I watched an interview with Anna Kendrick when she was asked to do the “Cup Song” from Pitch Perfect. I was amazed, it looked so difficult and I thought how awesome it was that she could do it.

“There’s NO WAY I could do that”, I thought

A few weeks passed and I decided to give it a try. I mentally prepared myself that it would take ages.

There are hundreds of video tutorials on YouTube and I found the one below to be the best. So, I got my Superman cup and followed the instructions…

I was shocked and amazed that I could do it perfect, every time after only 30 minutes of concentration, swearing and cups being launched across the room…

As for singing at the same time, I very much doubt that will ever happen.

I know it’s no big thing but I was actually really pleased with my accomplishment and it’s a great pub/party trick.

Now, I’m on the quest to find a new “skill” to learn.

I did toy with the idea of this but I think that’s way too unrealistic. If you can think of anything you think I could try please let me know.

In the meantime I might concentrate on this instead…

Donations or suggestions of Superman related footwear would be greatly appreciated😊

What about you? What’s your party trick?

Can you do the “cup song”? If you can’t then I’d really love if you could give it a try, video the results and I will share it here.

This will be a constantly updated post sharing my new skills and also any of yours too so make sure you bookmark it and keep checking back.

    1. A few times only. It’s really a lot easier than you would think! I watched it a few times before trying it and it’s kind of broken into two parts. Master one, then the other and join them together. Are you going to give it a try? Pleeeeease!
