Behind the Blog: Things I Wish I Was Better At

Behind the Blog is a feature I've created to allow my readers to learn more about us outside of the blogging and book world. My hope is to connect with readers outside of books, make friends beyond the blog. As far as I know, the title of this feature came from my own mind. I don't recall seeing it on a blog before, so if you have a feature with the same name, no copy intended.

1) Art - Lemme just say, I do not have the hands of an artist. I try so hard but I can't even draw a straight line...using a ruler. 

2) Organization - I'm a total slob, for one. (Behold, my backpack of doom below!) I actually pay my best friend to clean my room for me (you don't even want to see that disaster). I'm also bad about planning things in advance and remembering what I've planned. 
3) Dancing - All dem bitchez in da club be jealous when I break it dowwwwn. *Le sigh* The extent of my dance moves: 
4) Harmonizing - I love to sing. A lot. And I'm relatively good at it. I get solos and whatnot, but when me and my friend try to arrange a duet, she is always the one that has to find harmony. I clearly wasn't gifted with the magic ear of music. It's really not very convenient considering I'm an alto (for those of you who don't know, that means I pretty much ALWAYS sing the harmony). 

5) World domination - I've only managed small feats thus far, like leaving pictures of cats in random places. But I will take over the world some day. One cat at a time. 
1) Draw!! I seriously can't even manage a half decent stick man...
2) Sing *strangled cat alert!*
3) I know it's a weird one but I wish I could just act confident, I'm really bad at giving into my anxiety.
4) Play the piano (I do play but not very well! :S)
1) Sports - I don't even want to comment too much on this. I've got competition issues which is kind of ironic considering I'm really not that good. I just don't like losing. You should see me and my trash talk; can someone say "all bark, no bite?"

2) Science - I nearly burnt my eyebrows off in my chem class. Let's just say I poured way too much alcohol into the solution and nearly blew the roof off the joint... literally. Thankfully, I didn't get intro trouble because it was an honest mistake, but the science skills are like 0.

3) Working - My favorite word is procrastination. That just means I have a huge issue with balancing my blogging life with  my school life. You know, I've actually still got homework due from March that I haven't done yet. I'm an A student for nothing...

4) Photoshop Designing - I make my own banners and on my blog, you can see little examples of my work. But the simplest designs can take me up to 4 hours which really sucks. I wish I was better and I try to practice as much as possible, but I wish I was one of those cover ninjas.

5) Beat boxing - I love acapella.

Tell us, what activities do you wish didn't make you look like a n00b!?
