Things I'm Really Bad At.

i found this journal prompt a few days ago and thought it would make a fun blog post.  it's pretty easy to talk about the things you're good at or know a lot about, but what about things you're really bad at?  i mean, like, comically bad at.

for me, it's drawing.  like, i'm terrible.  when i was student teaching, my supervisor came to observe a math lesson once and gave me the criticism that the roses i drew for my third graders to demonstrate solving a word problem didn't really look like flowers.

and then, i was recently substitute teaching in a preschool classroom and had to draw something for one of my students, and i immediately got nervous.  because you know kids, they don't sugar coat what they think.  and this kid didn't.  when i handed the drawing over and acknowledged it's poor quality, my four-year-old student looked at it, and then up at me and said "yeah, you're not a good draw-er."  i know kid, i know.

fortunately, there are things i'm much better at than drawing.  and if nothing else, i figure my lack of skill in this particular area can lead to some fun stories to tell, however embarrassing.

so what's something that you are really bad at?

  1. Haha, oh girl don't even worry. I'm typically a good drawer, but sometimes I really mess up and my second graders laugh at me (in a lovingly way). I'm really bad at cleaning. My husband would agree. ;)
