Today’s #ReverbBroads11 prompt: What are three things you are better at than most people? via Catie at catiecake.wordpress.com
Only three?? Don’t you KNOW who I am?? Kidding. Kidding. I struggled with this a little bit, but probably because I’m just that awesome. Gah. Sorry. Kidding! It’s just too easy. Anyway, here are my gifts and some corresponding jams*.
1. I am a rock star under pressure. Put me in a bind, give me an unreasonable deadline, throw a wrench in things and I will shine. I’m very good on my feet. I’m getting A LOT of practice with this as a substitute teacher. Children are masters at all of the above so I have to be on top of things every second and do a lot on the fly.
2. I have a really good memory. I seem to remember details of events that happened years and years ago that others don’t. I’m getting really good at remembering names. I can get a classroom of children committed to memory in under an hour. I am positively creepy with faces.
Interactions sometimes go like this:
“Oh, hey! I sat next to you for a an hour during art camp in third grade, right??”
*I slink away sheepishly*
It’s a gift?
3. I am very perceptive.
Maybe this comes from disliking when people are made to feel uncomfortable or hurt. Maybe it’s because I am a pleaser and I like to see everyone happy. Maybe I’m just super empathetic. I am really good at picking up on the feelings or sentiments of others. I just seem to sense when things are off or if someone needs a little extra pick me up or compliment.
*Ok so I couldn’t find a song (that I liked) that related to this. For whatever reason I cannot stop watching this video today. Make sure you treat yo’ self and maybe treat someone else today, too.
