I feel like this post doesn’t really need an introduction, so we’ll just get right into some of things that I really suck at.
Keeping a Straight Face
Sad, but true. I cannot keep a straight face for the life of me. No matter how many times I practice during stare downs, I’m always the one to smile or laugh first. Maybe it’s because I’m trying too hard to force a stale face, but I can never keep it intact.
Both physically and mentally, I’m crappy at balance. Which is crazy, because you’d think with ten years of dance under my belt, that I’d be good at it. That is not the case. I’m also pretty bad at balancing out my life: sometimes I hang out with friends too often, and don’t think about family time too much, sometimes I spend too much time in my room and with nobody at all. I don’t know what’s wrong with me.
As far as I know, I don’t have ADD. I just get bored easily—especially when it has to do with something that I’m not interested in at all. I can think about song lyrics all day, or be hung up on what happened on the last episode of Jane the Virgin until I watch the next episode, but when it comes to listening to the same thing all the time, I will totally space out into my own world.
Using My Senses
This one is pretty self-explanatory. I’ve been wearing glasses for about twelve years of my life, and people have to repeat themselves pretty often. The reason I suck at listening is most definitely because I suck at paying attention, but you would probably think that I am actually hard of hearing. Nope. I’m most likely just bored with what you’re talking about.
I mean, I think if you’ve ever heard me sing, you’d know what I’m talking about. And if you haven’t—well, now you know why. But honestly, I’m okay with being a terrible singer, because I am a lip sync rock star.
I am horrible at explaining things—the best way that I can teach anybody anything is by showing someone how to do something, or by doing it myself altogether. I trip over my words. I stutter sometimes. I never know what word I’m thinking of exactly. I tend to paraphrase until someone gives me the correct word. I am just really bad at having to explain anything, or talking at all, for that matter.
Prompt: Make a list of things that you just can’t get the hang of.
