I think to date I've gained a few skills such as knitting, painting, and playing the uke purely from YouTube. The only things I wasn't able to master were the guitar and harmonica. Somehow it just seems impossible to learn these two instruments on my own.
Have done my third painting so far and I'm so pleased with this newfound skill Coz I'd always thought that I just didn't have this "artistic gene", after getting Cs for art classes. But I do love to paint, being so focused on the colors and strokes and nothing else. It's almost like being in a realm of your own. Trying hard to fight the urge to paint all the time
