I generally didn’t think of myself as a talented person! I usually (especially lately) have been telling people the only thing that I am good at doing is making a mess! Mostly because my mom is like the most creative person on gods green earth!
I guess the one awesome thing that I have always had going for me is the ability to read a book in a really short amount of time! I mean, when I was in college people would spend weeks reading a book and i’d read it the night before/ or the chapters on the bus on the way to school! I guess that I had a tiny bit of advantage with everything always being really fresh in my head.
The downside was as a child buying a book and finishing it within a few hours. I couldn’t ever make them last, and when you are a little kid buying books, and you don’t have a lot of money, you kind of wish that they would have lasted just a little bit longer. I think I might feel like this more now that the books I am reading cost about 3 times what they did as a child, but I don’t read as much as I used to, and I hate to say it I have really gotten slower. I am going to have to perk it up a notch!
