Things you're not good at (humorous)

In light of the awesome "6 Things You're Good At" post I thought we could do a funny, "I'm really awful at..." post too.  While reading through some of the other ladies' talents I realized I got skipped over on a few things...


1 - Singing.  Or I should say singing well.  I could not carry a tune if you put it in bucket for me.  This does not stop me mind you.

2 - Art.  Cannot draw a straight line with a ruler.

3 - Directions.  I could get lost in my living room.  This is only a minor exaggeration.

4 - Rhythm. White girl from Wisconsin cannot dance.

5 - Gracefulness.  I constantly have bruises I don't remember getting.  There is no use in wondering who put the door frame there - just say, "ow" and keep going!

Omg!! That is sooo funny!! GPS is my BEST FRIEND!!!

Re: Things you're not good at (humorous)

I'd totally go anyway!  Either we'd eventually find our way back or find ourselves in one of those "little creepy town in the middle of nowhere" horror movie scenarios.  Either way - adventure!

Re: Things you're not good at (humorous)

Haha Adventure!! That's one way to describe it!!

Re: Things you're not good at (humorous)

Take me along.....I can get you wherever you want to go...... eventually. We may have to take a few backroads but we'll have a fun time getting there!

1. Cooking. While I can bake like nobody's business, that does not carry over into cooking. Don't let me touch any course besides dessert Smiley Very Happy

2. Being quiet. I am loud. I laugh loud, get carried away and talk loud, and my parents called me a "little elephant" when I was younger. I also tend to drop things, walk into things, and bang things loudly without intending to.

3. Eyeliner. Be it liquid, gel, pencil, etc- it is NOT PRETTY when I attempt this, ladies!

4. Math. I carry a calculator at all times at work. No lie.

5. Controlling my beauty-related spending habits Smiley Very Happy

6. Tasting the difference between "good coffee" and "bad coffee." My coworkers think I'm nuts. Instant coffee, fresh coffee, coffee that has been sitting cold and was remicrowaved- it all tastes the same to me!

1- Singing. I also am somewhat tone deaf so even though I can play various musical instruments, I can't tell if they are in tune. Thank goodness someone invented digital tuners so if it's flashing green, I know it's in tune. 


2) I get lost too. I rarely drive places that I've never been before because I get so lost. I once ended up in a scary section of the Bronx while trying to get on the GW bridge into NYC. I even have trouble following spoken directions, I have to carry a paper  and pen so if someone tells me how to get back to where I was supposed to be, I don't get further lost.


3) I'm with you Kalex on the dancing part. Epic fail!


4) Rethinking a decision. Once I make up my mind (which can take awhile if I'm in a dithery mood), it's full speed ahead. Drives my hubby nuts.


5) Accepting that sometimes I'm going to be late. It drives me crazy when I'm late and I get all upset and act like it's the end of the world. Oh well, I'm working on this one.

Re: Things you're not good at (humorous)

1. Singing. Oh how I wish. You know the sound your cat makes when you step on it's tail? yeah that's me singing.

2. Socializing, in person. I'm a super efficient/to-the-point person, so I always get antsy when ppl come up to me and small talk. I need to learn how to small talk. o.O

3. Texting and social media. I feel so old (yeah, 25 here) and so behind times cuz I'm in the tech field, but I just don't like typing on anything other than a normal keyboard, and I don't go all excited-Biebier-fangirl style when I hear about new Apple products like my friends do...

4. Self-restraint in front of pretty things or tasty things. I have no immunity towards them. My mom told me that when I was little, we got on a bus and there was a guy with a cake in front of me. My mom refused to buy me a cake, so I staaaared at it the whole trip (prob 10-20min) so my mom finally brought me a tiny one. lol.

5. Dealing with cold/hot weather. Seriously, if it's above 80F and I don't have an AC, you are about to see a volcano (my temper) explode. And I absolutely HATE cold. Mostly because my nose is the first to feel cold. I have, on multiple occasions, seriously considered getting one of those clown nose thing so I won't feel like my nose is falling off.

Re: Things you're not good at (humorous)

Now this should be entertaining! *makes popcorn*


7.) Numbers. It speaks for itself...


2.) Public speaking. Anxiety issues (unless I take my prescribed "mellow pill")


3.) Memorizing simple tasks. I have little post it notes all over my desk to remind me certain things.


4.) Interactive games, specifically video games. That hand/eye coordination just throws me off. 


5.) Saving. I'm slowly starting to get better at it this year, though all these promo codes aren't really helping (it's a love/hate relationship) Haha Smiley Wink


6.) Mechanics. How things work.

Re: Things you're not good at (humorous)

lol, am I the only math lover here? the reason why I'm bad at exercising is that ever since I started high school, I substituted all my PE classes with math classes. Thus I have never exercised after Junior High. And my hobby used to be googling math jokes/pick up lines (yeah, ok, I know whatchu thinkin', no).

Re: Things you're not good at (humorous)

I'm a Math Lover @beautytester!! I was always good at it!!
