Things I'm Bad At

November 06, 2012

I hope things are going well for all of you. I cannot believe November is here! It seems as if October flew by and before we know it, it'll be December. I'm simply in disbelief. I know I've been less than present, but I'm hoping to get back into the groove of things now that midterms are over. 

So what better than to discuss all the things I'm bad at? I believe it's key to laugh at yourself every now again and to realize that you're not perfect and that you can't do everything and do it well. It's something I've been reminding myself in this stressful time. So, here are a list of things I'm bad at:

  • Comforting people during times of grief. I'm definitely not the person to come to hysterically crying or anything. I genuinely feel so sympathetic/empathetic by other's tragedies/hard time but I am usually completely stunned by people in grief. I am so awkward and no matter what I say will come off sounding wrong.
  • Painting. I'm an art major and I've been around art all my life, but if we're being honest...I straight up suck at painting. Hand me charcoal or ink or a computer with Photoshop ..but don't ask me to paint anything more complex than sorority canvas with a kitschy saying.
  • Driving. Granted I've gotten a lot better since I've gotten to college, but I'm still definitely a bad driver/navigator. I hate to add to the stereotype that women aren't the best drivers, but in my case, it's absolutely true. 
  • Doing my hair. I must have never gotten that gene, the gene that innately allows girls to do their hair flawlessly. I've always been a bit of a tom boy and I know the basics, but I am consistently envious of girls who do their hair so flawlessly and it looks perfect. Hats and buns are my best friends.
  • Being decisive while shopping. I am literally the pickiest shopper ever. I can roam for hours, like loads of things on the rack and leave without buying a single thing. 
  • Apologizing. It's just something I struggle with. I never like being the first to apologize unless I know I'm for sure in the wrong. Even when I am for sure in the wrong, I'm always worried about others not accepting my apology. Anyone else struggle with this?
  • Being patient. I am endlessly impatient with, lines, other people, and other such things. If you know me, you know I'm one of the most impatient people ever.
  • Procrastinating. I'm not the go-getter usually. I usually wait things out and I need to change that. I'll just continue to qualify my procrastination abilities as "I work much better under stress."

Anyone else bad at a thing or two? Feel free to share!
