If I Had A…Wrench?

I wasn’t going to do the Daily Prompt today because I didn’t think I had a certain trade I’d like to learn. But I’m trying to write every day (read as: most days) and I suddenly realised what skill I’d like to have.

I’d love to be able to fix cars, mechanic type stuff. That way, if/when something goes wrong with my car, I’d be able to sort it out myself no bother. I’m really not very good at asking for help; I feel like it’s a sign of me being weak when I have to do it. Which is crazy because I don’t judge anyone if they ask people for help, I think it’s great. But I can’t seem to apply that to myself.

Anyway, I don’t have a car when I’m away at uni and at home we share two cars between the three of us so I don’t technically have full responsibility for a car and my dad, love him, is in charge of all problems car-related. But one day I’m going to move out of my parents’ house and hopefully(!) have my own car and it’s almost guaranteed to have something wrong with it at some point. How amazing would it be if I could fix it myself, no parents, no mechanics!?

Of course, I don’t know the first thing about car mechanics so it’s more of a pipe dream for the time being.
