Things I Honestly Suck At

I feel like the blogging world is so often a platform for people to brag about how good at everything they are at how together they have everything. "Look at my perfect crafts, wardrobe, organization skills, recipes, blah, blah, blah. Here's how you can be as put together as me!" As you probably all know, (to put it quite bluntly), I don't BS around, and neither do those running my favorite blogs. You guys keep doing you; I appreciate it. So to combat this stereotype of bloggers only ever putting their best, perfectly natural-looking make-up face forward, I've compiled a real list of real things that I honestly suck at. Don't get me wrong, I'm also pretty good at a lot of things, but who wants to read about that?

1. Paying attention in class when I have my laptop out
...I was in class when I first started this post, y'all. I just like blogging and reading other blogs so much more than Weather and Climate!

2. Replying to texts/e-mails
I'm awful about reading a text message or email, deciding I need to think about what to say back, and forgetting to ever reply.

3. Being flirty and outgoing
I assume that, naturally, everyone hates me and doesn't want to talk to me. I recognize that this is completely stupid, but I do!

4. Eating vegetables
I've bought so few since I started buying my own groceries that it's embarrassing.

5. Procrastinating
As I've said before, I am a horrible procrastinator. I put off EVERYTHING until the last minute. I'm a lot better about it than I used to be, but I'm still struggling.

There you are. Five things I honestly suck at. I feel like writing that out was almost therapeutic. If you can't pinpoint your weaknesses, how will you overcome them?

So let's have a nice, quick honesty hour. What's something you're bad at?

Love and hugs,
"Find joy in your frustrations."


  1. I'm with you on #3, I have that same disposition so when people are flirty/super nice I'm all "what me, really me?" It's nice to know I'm not alone!

  2. I agree with 5 for sure. Also, I'm bad at ultimate frisbee. Not like "oh she needs practice" bad. But more like "she needs to never play this game again ever." bad...

    1. That reminds me! I'm bad at pretty much anything that involves any athletic ability!

  3. 'Find joy in your frustrations' I love that saying! You're right so many people blog about their perfect life and how great they are at things, but never the things they aren't so good at. I'm a new follower and would love it if you would follow back! XO

  4. I am absolutely terrible at cooking. As in I can't even make a grilled cheese. My parents joke that they're going to sign me up for cooking classes, which my future husband will thank them for. I wish I were good at it, but I just fail any time I try haha!

    1. I totally understand! I was really bad at cooking until I had to learn out of necessity when I moved into my apartment!

  5. I absolutely agree with all of these! I found a really great salad dressing and that is literally the only thing motivating me to eat vegetables haha

    New to your blog. So precious!
