5 Talents That I Wish Came Naturally To Me

I may be terrible at all of these things, but I will still do them anyway.

5 Talents That I Wish Came Naturally To Me

Am I the only person who sees someone do something and wish that I could that myself? Then when I try to do what they do a countless amount of times, I always end up failing miserably. This makes me frustrated because all of the people who are doing their respected skill makes it look easy.

It's really only with these 5 skills too. Here are 5 skills that I wish I was good at.

1. Singing

Singing is something that I love to do, but I am not good at it whatsoever. Whenever I try to sing at home, my dog cries until I stop, and I wish I was exaggerating on that. I never got solos is chorus growing up, and my friends would look at me with a stank face until I stop if I were to sing around them.

Singing is something that I am not good at, no matter how hard I try to be better at. Also, it's something that would be so cool to be good at because people would be impressed and mesmerized. As well as singing is really fun, and it would be way more fun if I was good at it.

2. Dancing

Dancing is something that is so cool to me. Whenever I watch Dancing With The Stars, I am so amazed at how well they dance. Dancers are able to tell a story without using any words, and all through motion. That's the coolest thing in the world.

Whenever I dance, I look awkward and it's not something people should witness. The few times that I have tried to dance in front of people have been awful and have made my friends Snapchat stories. Even to this day, I cannot do the floss or any of the Fortnight dances, which is why I want to be good at it. I just can't look awkward in front of everyone if I were to dance.

If you don't believe me you should check out my Instagram, @kathryndebois click the highlight "me dancing" and see how bad I really am.

3. Playing Instruments


I cannot play an instrument to save my life. Growing up, I played like 4 or 5 instruments and I was never good at them. Granted, I didn't practice them as much as I should have, but playing an instrument wasn't natural for me. People can pick up an instrument and after 5 minutes they're masters at it.

That was never the case for me. I would pick up an instrument and just constantly struggle with trying how to play it and play it well. Part of the reason is that I don't have a natural sense of rhythm and that's critical for playing instruments and dancing.

4. Anything to do with art

I have the utmost admiration for people who are good with anything related to art. It is something that I will spend 30 minutes on a beautiful masterpiece and then have it look like trash. Art is something I am not good at, I cannot draw, paint, sculpt, anything like that.

Everything I try will turn out to look like a little kid made it because they probably have more talent than I do. It's something that I've come to accept because I can't be good at everything. It would be so cool if I was good at art because art is cool, but it's totally fine.

5. Sports

I cannot play a sport to save my life. If you want to watch me play a sport, you might as well sign up to watch a comedy show. It's not something that I am good at, and every single time I try to play a sport, I end up embarrassing myself.

Sports are something that requires something called coordination, and that's something that I don't have, as I tend to trip over flat ground on a daily basis. It would be awesome to be good at sports because they're a great way to stay in shape, but it's not for me.

Overall, I may not be the best at these 5 things, but I'm still going to do them whenever I can. If I embarrass myself then, oh well, it won't hurt anyone and I'll have fun while doing them. I will sing in my car, I will dance awkwardly whenever, I will play an instrument when I find one, I will play sports when I can, and I will draw whenever I can because I still find all of these things fun.

Nobody can stop me, and the only thing that will get hurt is me when I fail miserably at sports. If you suck at something, still do it if you get enjoyment out of it. Don't worry about anyone else's opinion, it doesn't matter as long you're having fun.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
