Thursday Thirteen - Things I'm good at

Thirteen Things Jessica is good at

Two Thursdays ago I wrote about things I want to improve about myself. In fact, I spend a lot of time on this blog talking about that particular topic. So I thought I'd try to come up with 13 nice things to say about myself. Since self-deprecation is an integral part of my personality, I'm not sure I'll make it . . .

1. I'm smart, but not so smart that it's annoying.

2. I'm funny, but not so funny that it's annoying.

3. I make a mean baked ziti.

4. I can carry a tune.

5. I knit nice baby blankets.

6. I'm good at baking - so long as it isn't some fancy pants Martha Stewart recipe involving kumquats or something.

7. I'm a pretty good dancer (not "best dancer at St. Bernadette's" good, but I can hold my own).

8. I can talk faster than almost anyone I know and still be understood (sort of).

9. I type 80 words per minute. Now if I could only think that fast . . .

10. I have a great memory for song lyrics. They might not always be the right lyrics, though. Sometimes I just make up words if I can't figure out what it is.

11. I'm a nice person. Most of the time.

12. I can use the word "penultimate" in a sentence. This is the penultimate item. Really.

13. I apparently don't have an overly-inflated ego, judging by how hard it was to finish this list.

Hmm, in my oh so geeky way, I think I like #12 the best.

You made some great statements there that show you feel good about yourself. Good to look in the mirror and give a pat to your back once in a while!

My T13 is up!

I'm sooooooo guilty of #10 that it's not even funny! Loved your list! And the baked ziti sounds delicious........

It's so hard to say nice things about ourselves, isn't it? Much easier to be self-deprecating. I'm the same way. I'm so jealous of your backed ziti recipe; I'm still looking for one I like. And the penultimate comment made me laugh.

It should not be so hard to be nice to ourselves. Great list and keep thinking you are wonderful! Because you are!
