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!

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

Yes, cilantro.  Ugh!  Tastes like soap - I don't understand how anyone likes it.

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

1. Directions. I mean if I was lost and had no GPS, forget about me going home. That is why I always google map where ever I'm going

2. Buying Makeup I don't need... LOL its not like I need 4-5 blushes that are similar in color. I need to finish them first and then go out and buy more.

3. Saying sorry. My friend always tell me this, whenever someone bumps into me, I for some reason always say sorry when its not my fault.

4. Going to sleep early, even if I have to wake up 4 hours later for something I never sleep early. I'm an owl.

5. Whistling, I CAN NOT whistle to save my life.


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

You are all hilarious!  I can definitely contribute to this thread Smiley Happy


1. Cleaning - I'm meticulous when I do clean, but its usually at the bottom of my list.  In my single days, I would dump laundry on my bed to get myself to fold it... but I would just lay in the pile or move it over & sleep!

2. Patience - Ohhemgee, I have kids and have absolutely none sometimes

3. Gracefullness - I tried dancing Aparima, which is kind of a cross between hula & tahitian, & the slow beautiful movements were a challenge for me!

4. Art - Being a MUA, my skills are great... but beyond that, I draw stick figures

5. Staying on task - I self-diagnosed myself as having ADD years ago

6. Keeping composed.  Literally, I'm so ridiculously emotional, there isnt much that WONT make me cry!


I'm extremely flawed & totally fine with it Smiley Happy


xo, Mia


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

1- telling jokes - just can't ge the delivery right lol

2 - Braiding hair - even the basic braides jsu t aren't pretty... i will kepp practicing lol

3 - applying mroe than one color of eyeshadow

4 - defining my crease/creating the outer V - i just don;t get this.

5 - waiting until the very last minute to do my homework, even though i have plenty of time to do it ahead of time

6 - dancin gin social siuations - outside of my own house i am not a dancer despite how much i wish i were lol

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

Im NOT good at:

1. going to bed at a decent time

2. putting on my deodorant (i use hippie DO and sometimes I forget to reapply)!

3. knowing when to pick my battles with the in-laws

4. back hand springs

5. keeping any kind of sweets in the house (they will get eaten pronto so I just cant have them in the house).

6. driving at night time- i have fallen asleep at the wheel before

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

Back hand springs?!!  I'm not sure I could pull off a decent somersault.

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

Haha fun thread! Mine would be:

1. Time Management: I honestly can not remember the last time I actually ended up using all my time, it's terrible!

2. Being social: I can't talk to people it is that simple, if I don't have a friend or family member by my side I may not say a word at a party/social event.

3. Being graceful: OK I am the most clumsy person I have ever met, on the first day at my new school I tripped over a chair and landed flat on my face! I was mortified!

4. Worrying: I over think everything. And I mean EVERYTHING!

5. Picking my battles: I fight with my mom over every little thing. It is not a good habit.

6. Singing: I couldn't match a pitch if my life depended on it.

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

What a good idea this is!!!!

1. Following directions especially recipes - I must think to myself everytime that the person who came up with this recipe doesn't know everything so i'll just tweak this and that and well soon it doesn't actually resemble the actual recipe anymore some i set out to follow in the beginning, haha

2. singing - i love to do it but dont have the voice for it, sadly doesnt keep me from trying to either

3. being on time - I hate being the one coming in after everone is already in the room or whatever and they all turn to look at you as you walk in late, yet i have every intention of being early but you know what they say about good intentions...

4. keeping on task - i start to do one thing and get sidetracted on the way to do it, so it takes me 20 min to do a 5 min project sad really.

5. art - i can't draw period stick figures and sometimes challenging

6. patience - I pray for this at least 3 times a day Smiley Happy

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

1. Basketball. I was always a great athlete and could play most sports but I really suck at basketball (probably doesn't help that I'm 5' 3")

2. Singing. I love singing, but I sound terrible. Usually I do accents to make up for my lack of talent and all songs end up coming out country-ish.

3. Directions. I can visualize places I need to get to, but I can't connect the roads in between. So my parents got me a GPS Smiley Happy

4. Cleanliness. I love to bake, but no matter how hard I try the kitchen looks like a disaster zone. (although I make great food)

5. Drawing. I just can't. 

6. Not procrastinating. I tend to leave things until last minute. On the other hand I am much more productive when I get closer to the due date, if I start early productivity kind of sucks

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

#4 right here. I solve this by trading tasks with my husband, I hate washing dishes but he hates loading the dishwasher, he hates scrubbing the bathroom and I hate vacuuming so we can avoid the tasks we hate most, haha. We take turns cleaning the cat's litter box though, no one gets to escape that one!
