things I suck at

January 05, 2014

Sometimes the key to success is repetitive failure. According to Albert Einstein, it's also the key to insanity. Insane or not, I'm not afraid to admit that I utterly suck at a lot of things. You know what? I'm perfectly okay with it. Here are the things I suck at:

Math - I'm not sure why math even exists half the time. Yes I understand basic math. Yes I can tear up some statistics and probability, but I can't find the y-intercept of anything to save my life. Actually, I take it back. I don't suck. Math sucks.

Saving money - Ever since I graduated highschool, my paychecks have evaporated out of my bank account. Maybe it has something to do with bills, or food, or adult life. I don't know, it just sucks.

Having a social life - I'm an introvert, so I find that spending a lot of time socializing can really wear me out. Don't get me wrong, I love having friends and company, but a lot of the time, I can't bring myself to go to parties or meetings because I simply don't feel like talking to anyone.

Studying - I've never studied for anything. I simply don't know how. I take notes in class. I read my textbooks, but I've been told that's not studying. Whatever, studying sounds like it sucks.

Finding my keys - my keys are never in the same place. I suck at remembering where they are. Sometimes I even leave them in the door. Oops.

Taking selfies - I have not perfected the art of the selfie. I always open up the front facing camera at such an unflattering angle that it puts me off. Don't even get me started on pictures with flash. Cameras suck.

Being consistent - I'm terrible at responding to text messages and emails, I forget to put the dishes away, my sleep schedule is completely random, and I rarely live up to the expectations I set for myself. I need a routine, but routines suck.

I also suck at endings.
What do you suck at?


  1. I suck at routines too. I keep trying, but then I go back to my old ways again. I figure even small steps are progress, so I keep trying. I don't think I'll ever get the hang of having a regular sleep schedule though. I like sleep too much. :-)

  2. I also suck at taking even a half decent selfie: I just started my own blog and have almost no photos of myself to use as a display picture - suddenly strangely jealous of the girls with lots of pretty photos of themselves on their phone!
