10 Positives and Negatives About Me

Thanks to xKayTee91 on Xanga for the brilliant idea of a list of qualities in myself I like and dislike!

Ten Negatives.

1. I don't exercise very much.
I plan on working on this this summer. I'm tired of being fat and not having enough energy.

2. I tend to make poor diet choices.
I've always loved stuff that's not very good for me. But yet I'm a member of the Food Revolution! Maybe if the stuff that's not processed and full of crap was cheaper and more easily available than that processed nonsense I wouldn't eat so bad. I enjoy fruits and veggies and yogurt, I just don't really eat enough of the good stuff.

3. I'm unemployed.
I was laid off in December just before Christmas and I haven't been able to get a job since. I've looked but only got one interview and job offer and then they ended up giving the position to someone else after they gave me the run-around when I asked them questions that were important for me to know before I could accept the position.

4. I can be lazy.
I really hate being lazy, but lately it seems I'm becoming it more and more. I need to be up and about.

5. I don't always treat others the way I wish to be treated.
Don't get me wrong I try. And I always have the best of intentions but sometimes I tell little lies and words just come out wrong or I just don't think enough before I speak.

6. I'm emotional.
This is probably one of my worst traits. I swear I never used to be, but something changed this is me. I get upset easily and take things to heart which generally leads to me crying and getting all emotional.

7. I'm not very confident in myself.
I never have been. I've always been quite shy around new people despite being friendly, and I get so nervous when I have to do presentations in front of people as much as I am may be confident in what I am presenting.

8. I watch too much TV.
This kinda ties in with the being lazy point. If there weren't so many great things on I probably wouldn't watch as much. Sometimes I don't even enjoy watching it. I just do it cos I'm bored and don't feel like doing anything else.

9. I only have a handful of good friends.
This kinda ties in with the confidence thing and the shyness. It's always been difficult for me to make friends somehow despite being friendly. What sucks most about this is that I'm not even all that close with them. I try put sometimes people just grow apart or always seem to be busy

10. I don't really know what I want to do with my life.
I'm totally stumped. I went to a community college and chose Literature, Philosophy, and the Arts as my major. I don't regret this because I chose my major based on my interests and it allowed me to take a bunch of really cool electives like business management and ethics classes. I would like to go back to school for business management because I have some experience there thanks to the job I had while going through college. Business management and working in retail have always interested me, but the money is fairly poor. I'm at a dead-end.


Ten Positives.

1. I have nice eyes.
I like my eyes and everyone always tells me I have pretty eyes. Apart from the fact that their sight is crap (I wear glasses and have since I was a kid).

2. I love to be comfortable.
I don't really like the 'latest fashions.' I won't rush out to the nearest store to buy the latest must-have item. I like to dress simple- gimme jeans or leggings and a t-shirt or camisole and a pair of sneakers and I'll be happy!

3. I love my friends.
My friends are my world. I may not have a lot or be all that close with them all but I don't know what I'd do without them in my life.

4. I'm funny.
I've got a great sense of humor and I do see the funny in most things. I've been taking a Stand-up Comedy Workshop to kind of help me express it more.

5. I'm loving and caring.
I'm incredibly loving, and sometimes I probably care too much, but at least I care. I get attached to animals and people. It's probably why I take it so hard and get upset when people act certain ways to me or tell me things I don't necessarily want to hear.

6. I'm passionate and creative.
I can be quite passionate about things that I believe in. I think one would be animal rights. I cannot stand animal cruelty. Another thing would be music. I love music! Music is my life. Without music I wouldn't be who I am today. Friends and family may not always be there for you when you need them (they have their reasons) but music is something I know I can rely on.

7. I enjoy helping people.
This kinda ties in with being passionate. If I could do nothing else the rest of my life I would choose to help people. I get so much joy and satisfaction out of it because I like to see how it makes others happy when I can do something to help them, even if it is just something that seems small.

8. I'm not religious but I am spiritual and believe in a higher being.
This is a positive for me because I believe it makes me think for myself. I don't look to a more powerful being for answers. I pray when I feel stressed out about something and sometimes it helps but I know in the end the decision is still up to me. God or whomever put me here to make choices and mistakes not to lean on someone else all the time. (And before anyone starts, I'm not bashing anyone who is religious. I completely respect that.)

9. I like to window shop and do price comparisons.
I think of this as a positive cos it potentially can save me a lot of money in the long run. I think before I buy. And I always make sure I am well aware of return policies so if I do ended up buying something and I go home and realize I don't need it I can just bring it back and get the money back instead of wasting my money.

10. I know my faults.
I think that the fact I know and am willing to accept my faults for what they are is a positive. It is a positive in that know I can work on them and hopefully work on becoming not a better but perhaps a more positive person.

So there you have it. There's my lists. Thank you to xKayTee91 on Xanga for the inspiration for todays blog. Considering I'm not a huge fan of myself, I think I did pretty well coming up with what I did. If you know me and you think there are more qualities good or bad please list them. I was honest, and that's all I could be. I hope to start and keep working on those negatives asap.

Facts of the Day

These facts of the day are from Extra's "Betcha Didn't Know" segment that aired today May 11th, 2010.

(1) wet food is better than dry if your dog is overweight because it is 75% water. To help your dog drop those extra pounds faster feed it wet food and lots of exercise.

(2) 1/3 pound of broccoli has more Vitamin C than 204 apples.

(3) If you drink a lot of milk it can cause acne to become worse. This is due to the hormones present in it.

(4) Betcha don't wanna know this one: If your toothbrush is within 6 feet of your toilet it gets contaminated with bacteria every time you flush!
