Is it correct to say
"I wished I had learnt something somehow"|| Is there a better way to say it in few words ?? (After much practicing I felt I was not getting good at a skill, so, in my childhood days I wished I could become skillful, sure, I did not want to skip the process but was sometimes frustrated so to speak)
Timeline: childhood days, wishing for the future; which was not a reality in the then present time.
I want to express a feeling that I had in the past. And in that point in time, I had a strong desire to learn a skill but was in the process of learning.
Context We all know learning a skill takes time and perseverance. But we sometimes become impatient as the process of becoming a pro from novice is time consuming. Hence, we start wishing "Somehow I be as good as xyz(pro)" etc.
Any help in this regard is highly appreciated.
