5 Things I'm Good At | Anchors Aweigh


5 Things I'm Good At

Last week, I shared 5 things I am bad at. I have thought of many more things I could add to that list, but rather continue with a list that will eventually get depressing, I thought I'd go the other way and talk about 5 things I am actually good at. So, here we go.  

1. Spelling
I've always been more of the English/Language Arts type. Spelling and grammar are important to me, and I cringe when I see the wrong form of "your/you're or their/there/they're used. Spelling is just something that came naturally to me. One time, in the third grade, I got a 100 on my spelling test which meant I didn't have to take the next one. I was the over achiever that actually wanted to take the test because I knew how to spell the words, so instead I spelled each word for a boy in my class who wasn't the best speller so he could do well on the test. Obviously this was cheating and we were scolded, but I thought I was just doing a nice thing at the time!

2. Talking
I'd like to thank sorority life for this one. I'm fairly social and love to be around people. I think that especially in military life, it's important to be able to carry on a conversation with anyone. We all have to move and start over so often that we are pros at making new friends.

3. Cooking
I mess up my fair share of recipes, but for the most part, I am a pretty good cook. Thankfully Parker isn't a tough critic at all, so cooking for him is fun and stress-free. The matriarchs in my family have always done all of the cooking, and I do 99% of the cooking in our house. It's what works for us, and I wouldn't have it any other way!

4. Dog Ownership
Jenny is my best girl friend, so caring for her is a privilege rather than a chore. Taking her on walks, feeding her, etc. have never been inconveniences to me because I love that pup so much. I'd like to think I'm a good dog owner.

5. Procrastination
Good grief, procrastination should be my middle name. I will get what I need to get accomplished, but I'll wait until the last minute. This is most evident in house chores. If I know someone is coming over in 30 minutes and it will take me 10 minutes to tidy up the house, I will happily watch TV on the couch for 20 minutes and then decide to finally clean. It's kind of a problem, but then again, maybe it isn't.

Well, those are 5 things I consider myself good at! Are you good at any of the same things?

I am definitely a really good procrstinator. I end up waiting until the last possible second to do things and then stress out when I end up running out of time. LOL! I'm especially good at putting off doing the dishes.


Karla said...

Haha, yes! Procrastination. I'm a pro at it too! =D

I'm so good at procrastination, it's sickening! Especially things I don't really feel like doing, I can put them off with the best of em!

Melissa said...

Procrastination is key, Chelsea! I do better at everything on a time crunch! I'm not sure that's a good mindset with getting ready for a baby though ;)

Other than that, I'm really good at writing and swimming...my two biggest passions!

Jen said...

These are awesome! :) I think I'm pretty good at dog (well and cat) ownership. :)

Melissa said...

This is a lovely post. I love how you can reflect about yourself. Most people write about the things that make them happy or the bad things. I never read a post about being good in something :) So congratz. I'm sharing your post on my blog in my first Pearls post. :)

Amy said...

my gosh i wish i was good at it! :)
you are a great dog owner, and cook! i love all of your recipes!

Happily Ever Parker said...

I like your positive spin on procrastination :) I too am the master of this, in fact last night I told David, "Why do today, what you can do tomorrow?" Such a Slacker!!

Amanda Nicole Photography said...

cheese puffs and the couch are forever calling my name instead of my to do list! :) but yes you are really good at all those things!

Kate at Green Fashionista said...

Haha I'm the same way about spelling and procrastination! Are you watching the spelling bee on ESPN?

Rachel Lynn said...

I am with you on the procrastination! Geez louise. I know I have things to do and they really won't take long....but still...I put it off.
