Things I Suck At

I am taking direct inspiration from YouTube star Jenna Marbles, (who I adore and find her videos HILARIOUS even though the bf can't stand her), she made a video a while back called This I Suck At. While I am all about positive self-esteem and finding things you are good at blah blah blah, sometimes you just need to accept that there are some things you suck at, will probably always suck at, and perhaps find some humor in those things. I know my strengths but I also know my weaknesses and I think that is a good thing. 
So let me take you through a little list of Things I Suck At.

1.) I suck at saying "No" to that little brown furry face...I just can't do it...she sits in front of me and whimpers and I just let her climb on my chair and lay on me...



2.) I suck at not buying ALL THE SAUCES, I clearly have a lot of dressings and sauces and hardly eat any of them...oy




3.) I suck at cleaning out my purse, like EVER. Unless I buy a new purse and only transfer the things I really need...which means I have a slew of purses in a tub somewhere with random junk I never cleaned out because I just got a new purse instead
FYI not cigarettes, those are cough drops lol


4.) I suck at putting clean clothes away. I am good at not putting dirty clothes all over the floor. I am good at washing the clothes and putting them in the dryer...and then that's it... I just never take that final step and want to put the clothes away


5.) I suck at painting my nails...which is why I don't do it very often because I can never "stay in the lines", they always end peeling and chipping, I can't wait for them to dry and they smudges and indents and marks...this time I have a few dents and a dog hair stuck in one nail...whats wrong with me?!


6.) I suck at using the last bits of anything, these containers are all in my bathroom cabinet, I clearly won't throw them away, but I also won't use the last drops or sprays of any of them. I am a Goo Hoarder...I won't throw away my random goo but I also never use it all up...


7.) I suck at keeping plants alive. I just can't do it. Even the most hardy of plants, like this Christmas Cactus...which basically needs nothing and I think its ready to keel over and die..but I don't know, because I know nothing about plants, that's why I never buy them on purpose, this was a gift from my boss


8.) Finally, the thing that drives the bf the most nuts ever, I suck at remembering things. Mostly short term memory type things, trying to recount a conversation I just had, where I just put something, why I walk into a room...I just can't remember. I could tell you ever detail about something that happened five summers ago, but I certainly can't tell you what I did yesterday


What do you suck at? 
Let's laugh at ourselves together :)

    LOL at the plant. i don't have a green thumb either and killed hub's cactus. he was not pleased and prohibited me from touching anything green going forward.

    i also hate putting away laundry! it's freaking 2013, why haven't they invented something that automatically folds and puts your laundry away when they're dry?!

    1. aww I think cacti are pretty resilient plants too...good work! lol
      I totally agree, a special "putter-away-er" machine would be highly sought after!

  3. I used to be a serial house plant killer, but I have improved in time. Now I suck at keeping up a garden!

  4. Omg, we suck at so many of the same things! I have a terrible memory, there are about 3967 bottles of dips/sauces/spreads in my pantry and fridge, we won't even TALK about how many times I've "fluffed" the clothes in the dryer, and I have officially proclaimed myself as cursed...with a black thumb! I mean, seriously...I killed an ALOE PLANT! Those things are practically self sustainable! What's wrong with me!

    But as far as the goo? Seriously, there are few things better in the world than the feeling of finishing off the last of something! I feel like I should pat myself on the back or something for using the last of my hair gel! Lol

    1. So glad to hear I'm not alone on some of these things! I think my grandma had an aloe plant on her table for years and didn't do anything to it, and it just lived forever!
      Yeah I can't finish a goo because I get too excited to start a new one :)

  9. I am OBSESSED with mustard and salad dressings. My pantry is stocked full of both in various varieties. My boyfriend gets so annoyed when I buy more salad dressing. LOL

  11. I love that you also keep snacks (pretzels) in your handbag. I've been known to whip out a granola bar when someone says, "I'm hungry." I am freakishly prepared for many a situation thanks to my handbag.

    I also suck at putting away clothes. I've been known to live out of the dryer for weeks.
