Love & Hate

5 things I hate about myself:
1. My eyesight. This includes my astigmatism, which is the reason I'm not supposed to get Lasik.
2. My inherited soft teeth. My smile may look pretty but I have more cavities than a cave.
3. My metabolism. It's a bitch.
4. My lack of motivation to actually DO anything I want to do. I would love to redecorate my home, to learn to paint, to get better at photography, to save up and go on an extravagant vacation...
5. My lack of motivation to stay in touch with people. I'm really bad about keeping up with my friends. I will never email my friends first, or call them first. Half the time I don't call people back. I hate to lose friends, but I also hate talking on the phone.

5 things I like about myself:
1. My hair, which now that I've figured out I don't have to blowdry, really makes me feel like I have something.
2. My eyes. I'm blessed with my mom's awesome brown eyes.
3. My luck. I know I seem to be down a lot on here, but actually I'm pretty lucky in life. I may be poor, but I survive and things often seem to work out for me (somehow).
4. My skin. So far, (I'm 25 years old) I have never had an acne problem. And I rarely ever wash my face at night. It could be attributed to the fact that I've rarely ever worn face makeup (other than eye stuff). Either way, I feel lucky in that sense.
5. My ability to pick out good friends. You know who you are.

What about ya'll?

Five things I hate about myself:
1. My lack of social skills. I have a really hard time carrying on a conversation with someone I don't know. Or even someone I do.
2. My weight. I wish I could diet strictly and exercise everyday, which leads to the next item on my list.
3. My lack of motivation. Even if I do get motivated to do something, it never lasts long.
4. My neediness. I need to feel needed. If I don't feel needed, the next item on my list usually surfaces.
5. My jealousy. If you have something I don't, then I'm jealous of you. I really hate taking my jealous frustration out on the people I care about.

Five things I like about myself:
1. My sense of humor. I've been told I'm a pretty funny guy if I can calm down and feel comfortable enough to crack a joke around you.
2. My eyes. I'm not trying to brag, but many women have told me I have beautiful eyes.
3. My punctualness. I am rarely late and if I am, I feel horrible about it.
4. My loyalty. I am an extremely loyal person.
5. My friendship. I try to be the best friend I can be. If you need help with something, I will probably help if you ask. If you need me, I will be there, whatever the case may be.
