Day twenty-four: Your top 3 worst traits.

One: Procrastinating. I am a professional procrastinator. Not something I'm proud of although I'm good at it.

Two: Short attention span. Seriously short. I cannot do just one thing. If I'm watching a movie or TV I'll also be reading, playing games or on social media on my phone. It drives the mister crazy.

Three: Lack of confidence. I write myself off before I attempt new things. I still attempt it but my mind usually is right and I suck. I need to be kinder to myself but after 27 years of beating myself up it's hard to be nice. I'm working on it.

School Didn't Teach Me.

Day twenty-three: Things you've learned that school won't teach you.

School didn't teach me:

  • What it's like to work 9-5 because you have bills to pay. 
  • Responsibility. Real responsibility.
  • How to raise children. I'm still learning and will be until the day I die. Anyone who says they are an expert is lying. 
  • What to expect at university. 
  • How to keep in contact with your friends now you don't see each other every day.
  • How to prepare nutritional meals for lunch. All we ate and drank was sausage rolls and coke. 
  • That punishment in school is relative to in real life. I've never gotten into trouble for wearing nail polish or make-up like I was in school. 
  • Having a day off at work means you have triple the workload when you get back. 
A lot.

Blogging Problems and Catch Ups

I'm fighting with my blog. We are currently exiting the ignoring stage.

It won't let me change the font style, colour or size. It's very frustrating. Sass is amazing and helped me. If you ever need any blogging help she is your lady. 

I still have a lot of work to do to finish making it pretty enough that I'll be happy with it but it's still being stubborn and I don't have the patience or time to try to get it to work.

I don't feel like going through my old posts and telling you my favourites so I'm skipping Day twenty-one in the Days in May prompts, a list of links to your favorite posts in your archives.

Day twenty-two's prompt is to rant about something. Get up on your soapbox and tell us how you really feel. (a pet peeve, a current event, a controversial topic, something your husband or roommate or neighbor or boss does that really ticks you off).

I've ranted about my blog above. I have a lot more to rant about but really it's all first world problems that make me feel like an ungrateful twerp. Like bitching about, being annoyed and frustrated at my blog. So first world.

I'm Struggling

Day twenty: Share something you're struggling with right now.

Roller derby.

I've lost some passion for it. Some. I'm struggling and feel like I'm not getting any better. I know I've gotten a lot better since I started over a year ago but I feel like I've hit a plateau.

I've decided to take a break to miss it. I don't know if it's the best option but it's a last resort. I'm going to work on outdoor skating, weights and general fitness. I'll still do drills once a week rather than two unless studying gets in the way with that too.

I had this week off and I already miss it. I feel like a teenager who's missed a party. It's not an enjoyable feeling but one that I need to work through, I'm (obviously) not a teenager and derby is hard work. It's supposed to be fun though and I'm not walking away happy. That's not what I want.

In six weeks I'll be back stronger and happier.

My Embarrassing Moment.

Day ten: Most embarrassing moment(s).

Is it weird that I can't think of one big embarrassing moment. Nothing really pops into mind.

I know I've felt embarrassed many times after a night out clubbing, drinking excessively. It could be one reason why I don't like drinking much anymore. Gone are the days when I can be comfortable with forgetting what I did the night before, not that I ever should have been comfortable with that.

I always seem to do embarrassing things. I'm the person who says and does the wrong things at the worst times. I am a klutz too, always hurting myself in strange ways like breaking my nose by head butting my knee.

The key is the ability to laugh at yourself. Don't take yourself too seriously or you will become embarrassed about too much. Life is too short.
