My 3 worst traits

They ask you this at every job interview- but if you're a savvy in the ninja ways of interviewing then you know you always flip it into a positive.  I say, I'm a perfectionist and I like things done perfectly.  I mean, how can that be a bad thing in the job world right?  Well, this isn't the job world.  

When I first started blogging I tried to complete the Everyday in May Challenge.  I lasted -oh- 20 days, maybe... and by that I mean I did it faithfully for like 2 days and then started doing multiples when I realized I was 5 days late.  Yeah.  Did you ever read my awesome post on how I am a master of procrastionation?  Well if not, check it out here.  And yes, I give private lessons, for a fee...which can be paid in chocolate.  You're welcome.

I've decided to finish the challenge on my own time whenever I'm lacking inspiration and lately that's been the norm from a lot of the blogs I've been reading.  I blame the end of summer.  Who wants to summer to end?  Baby haters and communists, that's who.  (That was a joke, who could hate a cute cuddly baby- geez, I'm not a monster!)  But seriously, no one in their right mind wants summer to end.  

So, without further adieu here are my worst 3 traits:

1.  When I argue with you I go Stone Cold Steve Austin meets the Ice Queen and has little lawyer babies.  I'm talking sharp words in a black out state people.  I will go from happy bubbly person to straight faced walking nightmare.  It's happened.  Luckily one of my best traits is that I am a communicator (ironic, I know) and will calmly and openly discuss feelings and how to avoid this situation in the future when I return to earth and stop breathing fire...

2.  I over eat.  I love food.  I need to run more and stop eating my feelings.  Also, I saw this on Pinterest and did a serious hand to forehead action.  Ouch.
You win little doggy poster.  Touche.
3.  I suck at follow through in my personal life.  I'm getting better-thank God.  I have all of these awesome ideas *cough, blog 2 years ago* and sometimes they never make it to the light of day.  Also, I'm pretty sure my friends think I died on a weekly basis and don't even get me started on the ones I left in WA when I moved up here.  I'm bad....  Is there an AA for that?  There should be!!!  So, little disclaimer there.

Wow, I feel more naked than Torrence's bad dream in Bring It On.  I'll get the door, Torr!  There you have it!  Don't they say that owning your flaws makes you a super hero or some crap?  Well, I own them and am working on it.  I mean, nobody's perfect right- but I'm super close... bahahahahaha.  Yeah, no.  

If I've learned anything from bareing my soul to blog land it's that we are who we are and it's ok to constantly be working on yourself.  The big 3-0 is in exactly one month and I'm starting to love the person I am, and the person I'm becoming.  I'm more good than bad and just to solidify that I'll share something really cute with you.  My carabox buddy asked my husband to describe me in 5 words- believe me, I braced myself.  He said: Beautiful, Loving, Energetic, Compassionate and Supportive.  Swoon.  I must be doing something right to have such a great guy in my life.  

Take the good with the bad.  Face your flaws head on and own them, they are a part of you but they do NOT define you.

What are you flaws?  How do you overcome them?  Are we still friends? 


  1. I love the way you write this - I can tell you're a communicator ;)
    And I really need that rewarding-with-food-poster on my fridge...

  2. I also have the gift of argument. I'm working on calming that down... Hah.

    And I do want summer to end. It's HOT here, and humid, and miserable, and the bugs are unbearable. If you live in Arkansas, you ALWAYS want summer to end. *sigh*

    1. Ok, you've got a point. I'll exempt you from that comment!
