What Are Ten Things That You Are Awesome At?

I am hoping that this prompt will make you ponder your own skills and abilities. We are all good at something even if we assume that we are not. If we think long and hard, or maybe not so hard we can all come up with at least 10 things that we are good at. These skills don’t have to be earth shattering or life changing. It can be anything from being able to use a hammer to decorate a cake to clean a bathroom and leave it sparkling. Here are my top 10 things and I sure would like to read yours, so be sure to respond.

  1. Trouble-shoot a computer
  2. Use a DSLR camera
  3. Bake a cake
  4. Cook a meal
  5. Play a song on a guitar
  6. Organize a barbecue
  7. Drive a car
  8. Change a lightbulb
  9. Shoot and edit a video
  10. Sleep

Thanks to the “365 Topics” iPad app for the prompt.


10 Things About Me That May Surprise You!

10 Things That May Surprise You About MeLately, I have been using online prompts to help me blog. Being without my muse Lefty, or inspiration, they are a great help. The two I have been using are “Plinky” and “Day Dreaming On Paper.” Today’s prompt is “List 10 things that people are always surprised to find out about you”. Some people will not be surprised, the ones that have known me most of my life, and you know who you are. I guess, telling people all of these things is a little revealing, and some of them might even be considered secrets.

1. I am bipolar (and have been most of my life)

2. I am of Russian decent

3. I own a Mac & a Windows PC

4. I used to run a open mic night

5. I can cook (and I don’t mean heating up frozen dinners)

6. I used to smoke

7. I have a cat named “Smokey” who owns me

8. I can fix most PC problems (just ask my family & friends)

9. I don’t drink alcohol

10. I used to sing, play guitar and mandolin
