Summertime Blues11:11 AM
I have never been one to exceed at anything in particular. I have too many interests to focus in on one alone and I tend to take on too many things at once so I never become fully exceptional at any of them. I love to read, I read a lot but in short bursts and I forget after awhile if I have read certain books or not. I love to cook, but I fail to follow any cookbooks or recipes and I tend to make the same things over and over only with slight variation. I like to exercise, but I fail to keep at it, and get disappointed easily. I love to paint my toenails but I do not have a steady hand. I love to write stories and poems, but they are mostly slap-stick and I fail to form plots or meaning. I don't mind though.
I like that I don't dedicate all of my time and energy into one activity or passion because there are so many things out there to try. I like that I get frustrated when I burn stir-fry because then I can try again, and I am fully aware that I am human. What I like most of all, is that while people may know that I have many interests, they also know not to expect too much of me. When my friends come over and we are ready to go out and want me to do their makeup, I used to fear that I would mess it up so bad and they would get mad. Now I just make them aware that I am working out of a caboodle box and using wet n' wild, not the makeup counter at Macy's. When co-workers can tease me for reading Moby Dick, and Buffy the Vampire slayer comics, I look at it as being well-rounded. When Kyle comes home from work to feast on my "special", I know that he will be just as geeked eating macaroni with cheese and slices of hot-dogs instead of chicken Alfredo.
I think the best is my "fashion-sense". Enough people know about my blog and that I post outfit pictures regularly, but I love the fact that I can come into work, looking like the perfect little secretary in heels and a pretty skirt and then waltz in the next day in my Teenage Mutant ninja turtles T and know that I will be posting both outfits. They know I love clothes, but they never expect me to know what is in style. Like I said, they don't expect much of me, and I know that it sounds bad, but I love being the mediocre me that I am.
