To start off my newest blog category,
here's a random and possibly off list of things I am not good at:
*Riding a bicycle. Yup, for real. Don't tell ME 'it's just like riding a bike' and expect me to follow along. lol.
*Baking Challah bread. This one is surprising, as I am pretty good at braiding... but the mystery of baking combined with making Challah bread's braids even and esthetic is not my strong suit. Must improve this one. Oy vey!
*Apologizing. I am one of those that can't just 'apologize and shut up.' I can apologize - I am willing to admit when I'm wrong - but I usually find myself excusing, explaining or justifying along with my apology... Gotta work on that. Ugh.
*Blow Drying my hair. I'm a curly girl, alright??? And it's really hard to blow dry one's own hair. I am honestly in awe of people who can blow dry their hair at home as if they just went to a salon. Major skills that I DON'T have.
*Small Talk. Okay... okay... this one I can actually do quite well. But I HATE it so much so I just DON'T small talk. I like to talk BIG. Like - for real. Talk in depth. GO there and not just talk about the weather.
*Not interrupt while someone is talking. Maybe it's a cultural thing... or fighting to be able to speak my voice... but I have a hard time stopping myself from the horribly rude habit of interrupting when someone speaks. Is it that I'm having too much coffee!? Or that I just can't wait to blurt out my opinion!? Or is it out of fear that I won't be heard!? Who knows. I just know I gotta get better at this. I GOTTA.
*Daily meditating. I used to be pretty consistent at this beautiful act of self love, but I fell off the wagon and must. get. back. to. this. soon!
*Making new friends. Is anyone good at this??? I can make acquaintances. But friends? Real friends are hard to come by. They take time and a whole lot of trust, and the older I get - the more introverted I become.
*Keeping my closet & car tidy. My car is a dusty messy disaster and my closet is over-flooded with unfolded clothes. I'm not sure where and how and why I picked up those habits in just these two areas of my life but BOY it's weird.
More confessions to come...!
In April 2020, while experiencing her first ever global pandemic, Tamar Pelzig pledged to write something every day, even if it's only a word, so she welcomed to the world a daily blog to keep her creative writing wheels rolling.
