Seven Deadly Sins: Pride
When Stephanie started this on her blog, it made me want to do it. I’m just now finding the actual writing want to do it. I’ll most likely struggle to find most of the “answers” to this meme, but I want to challenge myself. I mean, hello! College is about a month away, and I need to focus my brain all over again!
I take great pride in straightening my hair.
It isn’t because I don’t think I could look nice without straightening it. Straightening my hair is just something I can control for at least two or three hours no matter how the day goes. It’s something I can control about me. It’s just something I enjoy doing, and I don’t want to give it up. I doubt I ever will. I just like the way I look. It makes me feel cute and lovely versus the icky feeling I get when my hair is not straight.
I’m progressing in design everyday, and I love it.
I don’t really care if others don’t think so, because to me I’m doing just fine. I know I’m not perfect, but I recently learned how to do rounded corners in CSS, and I think it’s awesome! 😛
I love arts and crafts.
I really do. In my family, I’m the artsy one. I’m really creative. I haven’t sketched in a long time, but I’m also really good at that, too. Of course, not right now… But in time, I’m pretty great. I love drawing stills and things… Cornucopias, pumpkins – I can draw these quite well! I’d love to get back into this… I just need to find my sketchpad! 😛 …and my Prismacolor utensils!
I love looking at myself in the mirror sometimes because I’m so proud of how I look at that time!
I mean, I don’t always feel like I look alright, you know? It’s just that, whenever I notice that I look pretty darn grand even once in one day, NOTHING can bring that day down because I’ll still look fabulous1.
Naming the details is just my forte – something that happens to drive the people surrounding me nuts.
But I’m quite wonderful at it, and I think that this is because I love to write so much. Or maybe it’s because of how much I’ve written throughout my life? In writing you have to list the details. Details aren’t horrible. I think that the world needs more details in the clouds.
Mathematics is another forte
even though I have changed my major/plans for becoming a math teacher2. I don’t think I’ll be selling my first college [algebra] math book anytime soon. It’s the first math book I’ve ever gotten to both use and keep3.
I’m confident and comfortable in my body.
I still want to continue working on getting into shape and tonight4 my legs and my thighs and such, but deep down, I’m pretty comfortable with myself. Whenever Cody insults me and I say, “Thank you,” it ticks him off so much because it doesn’t bother me. Why should it? Why should I continue to let him get what he wants and hurt me like he does? Why should I let it get to me when I’m already comfortable? I’m happy he doesn’t find me pretty, because that would mean he’s that much closer to being attracted to me, and that would be pretty grody.
