I get it, it sounds pretty harsh. Honestly, though, there are things I do that just make me shake my head at myself. I am 30 now, shouldn’t I have figured this all out by now? Anyway, here is a quick list of my sucktasticness. Enjoy.
And let’s be clear, I am amazing at life in a lot of ways. These are not those.
1. I almost always burn my soup.
I put the can of soup in a pot, set it to heat, and promptly forget I did it until I hear it bubbly furiously on the stove, or I smell it burning. I have done this for ages. When I was a kid I would boil over pots of soup so often that my Mom threatened to stop letting me heat my soup on the stove. I still do it to this day. I just burned a pot of pea soup. I could blame it on the fact that I am sick today, but when you are 18+ years into a habit, it is just because you suck.
2. I leave things out after using them.
Yup, this is a doozie. It is why this whole “declutter and organize” thing is so important/difficult for me. It drives my husband nuts. But he was forewarned! My Dad used to tell him that I might look great leaving the house, but my room and bathroom looked like a bomb went off. If that shirt doesn’t work, why put it away when you can throw it on the floor???
It is only fair to admit that I am also the one cleaning it eventually; that should count for something, right?!?!
3. I am the queen of procrastination.
I started this post six months ago…hahaha KIDDING! But I was always the one writing a six page essay the night before it was due, in University. I think us creative people do some of our best work under pressure! This procrastination isn’t so great when you are, for instance, hand-making Christmas gifts, or packing for vacation (my favourite shirt is DIRTY! Vacation RUINED!). I will need to get help from family and friends to ensure my first child has a fully prepared nursery. And a car seat. See that? Me thinking ahead to things not even close to happening soon!
(See what I did there, I made sure you can all stop asking me when I am getting pregnant…)
4. I like to make fun of people.
I really hate this one. I fully believe it is because:
- I was born full of awesome sarcasm and sometimes it goes too far.
- Insecurity sometimes gets the best of me.
- Some people are just really stupid and annoying. That is not my fault.
I am honestly trying to not be nasty about it any more. I don’t want to come across as mean spirited. Unless you are really stupid or annoying. Consider yourself warned.
Also to be fair, I believe in “if you can dish it out you can take it.” Most of my friends make fun of me, and it is part of what I love about them.
5. I wear my hair the same 90% of the time.
The messy bun is my uniform. I wear my hair down and curled or straightened when I want to get all pretty, but when it doubt, messy bun.
One of my friends and I often went for late night makeup and nail polish runs at Walmart, and she would joke that the greeter recognized us as “ginger and high bun.” So I am working on embracing my natural curl and switching things up a bit.
6. Candy is my drug.
Specifically, gummy candy. Even better, Haribo anything. But if I need a fix, the candy cup at the corner store will give me what I need. I could care less about chocolate. I love ice cream but it gives me the toots. Gummy candy for the win. I do need to ease up if I don’t want to buy an entirely new wardrobe to fit my growing booty.
7. I judge people if they don’t like my dog.
Or dogs in general. I am fine if you don’t like cats, they are spiteful little beasts. But when people don’t share my love for Kiely, they go down a few notches in my book. Oops?
7 items is good enough; really, how much self abuse can I inflict online? 10 still sounds good in the title though. I’ll leave it.
What do you suck at? I love comments, so share with me!
