what are you really good at? what are your talents, areas of expertise?

<p>it doesn't matter how insignificant or eccentric, general or specific...anything goes. knitting, pokemon, romantic poetry, jiu-jitsu, flirting, drawing, theosophy, industrial architecture, fashion, papier-m</p>

<p>Horeseback riding and community organizing are my talents. And cooking bacon. And that might be all. lol</p>

<p>I'd like to think I'm a pretty good writer.</p>

<p>Chess, speedsolving, first person shooter games, piano, cooking Asian food from scratch</p>

<p>I've been told I'm a pretty good writer. I think I'm best at writing arguments and narratives. I also correct grammar like a pro. I can plan a vacation in a second and I pack super well. I can tell you everything you need to know about Disney World. I make a mean meatball. I'd very much enjoy being a personal shopper. I'm awesome at decorating things/places. I can play piano pretty decently. I dance well. I could recite the entire history of the New York Yankees for you. </p>

<p>And I think that's it.</p>

<p>I'm a pretty good set and costume designer for plays, at least on a high-school level.
I really love doing this but chose not to study theatre or follow a career path in it because of the low pay relative to the hours worked, as well as the difficulty finding a good, steady job.
It's really saddening, because it's one of the only things I've ever really been good at.</p>

<p>I've been told that I'm a pretty good writer, so I'm proud of that. I'm also good at procrastinating, and getting things done as close to the due date/deadline as humanly possible. Also, I could literally enter and win a Harry Potter trivia contest, and I think I play soccer pretty well - not fantastically, but well enough to be fine at my new school this fall.</p>

<p>I'm also able to motivate myself to run every day of this whole freaking summer - sometimes early, sometimes not, but it always gets done - which quite honestly has to be one of my greatest talents and accomplishments ever. Seriously, if you asked me what I was proud of this summer...that would be it. Haha.</p>

<p>"Really good?" Probably nothing. You all set the bar way too low.</p>

<p>Skateboarding, writing I'm pretty decent at, umm I think that's it. Oh and French!</p>

<p>Procrastination, horseback riding, cooking, cleaning (yes, cleaning is something I am both good at and enjoy. yes, I am a freak of nature), photography, biology, reading, catching animals in the wild, harvest moon....</p>

<p>

Seriously. I can procrastinate with the best of them.</p>

<p>Basketball, lacrosse although it's not my favorite, ballet</p>

<p>organizing things, drawing, dissecting small creatures, catching Mike & Ike's in my mouth from up to 6 ft away, cracking eggs perfectly without dribbles, Origami swans, nbd

Whoa now, don't be sour, I promise you're special, just like all the other kids</p>

<p>This is a strange one, but I am crazy good at Wheel of Fortune. When I watch with my family, unless I'm having an off day, my mom and brother usually team up against me and make up reasons why my guesses don't count. :) Though my mom also has strokes of brilliance. She guessed Washington Monument with NO LETTERS. </p>

<p>I am also really good at interjecting really odd non sequiturs. My friends frequently quote me on a particular one: "I wonder what flaming donuts smell like."</p>

<p>Finally, I am very talented in the field of assessing brownie done-ness. My parents are pretty accomplished cooks and they both defer to my judgment on this one. </p>

<p>In a more serious sense, apparently my writing is really great. I've had one professor keep a photocopy of an essay for herself and select another to present at the school's research symposium, a politics TA suggest I submit my paper for an undergraduate research contest (which I couldn't do because I wasn't a social sciences major), and a philosophy professor tell me that she wanted to send me to a research conference for a paper (which I didn't do because I was transferring). I was also my high school's poet laureate. /bragging</p>

<p>I cannot do this! :D I can never find the middle ground between having a little tiny dent in the egg and having the white spilling out everywhere. I'm legitimately impressed.</p>

<p>Managing to have someone getting puking drunk at every party I've had. Considering my friends, that is not an easy feat.</p>

<p>Racing games, rock climbing, making jokes. I'm also a really fast reader, I read sentences in my head much faster than I would be able to speak them. I consider myself pretty creative as far as writing goes. And I have a really good ear for music.</p>

<p>Drinking. Blacking out. Doing detective work to find out what I did while blacked out.</p>

<p>Procrastinating. Lying on the spot. Making people feel like sh &t.</p>

<p>Oh and bullsh &tting. That is my specialty, whether it is on my English final or with my parents. :D</p>

<p>Reading, drawing, crafting, and arguing.</p>
