100 Things About Me, Part 6

Time for another riviting installment...

And in case you didn't get enough:
Part 1
Part 2
Part 3
Part 4
Part 5

51. Sometimes at night I have a very over-active imagination and can easily convince myself that the slightest noise is someone coming after me.

52. I am very social, but I hate to be the center of attention. It makes me very uncomfortable.

53. I am very bad at taking compliments. Very, very bad.

54. I worry that #53 makes me seem ungracious, when this is not at all the case. The case is really just that I am a big dumb idiot who doesn’t know how to take a compliment.

55. I don’t want to look like a slob, but I am quite sure that I do more often than I don’t. This makes me sad.

56. You will almost never see me leave the house without at least a little bit of make-up, unless I’m going to the gym. This is not because I am crazy, simply because I feel better about myself with a little make-up on because I think I look better. I don’t care if anyone else thinks so or not.

57. I love photography.

58. I have finally figured out that a cell phone is for my convenience and safety, so if it isn’t convenient for me to answer it, I don’t.

59. Sometimes (although not always) talking to people that I don’t know makes me uncomfortable.

60. The previews are my favorite part of going to the movies.

They're all me!!! I swear, even in the summer, I pull the covers up over my neck because I'm convinved a vampire will come get me in the middle of the night!! ;)

I agree with you on the cell phone, I feel the same way.
Taking compliment is hard for me too, I think it is hard for a lot of people.
Have a great weekend.

I haven't looked at the rest yet, but by these alone, I'd say we are very similar....

I will have to go back and look too! Yup, a bunch of peas in the pod.
Oddly enough, the whole "uncomfortable talking to people I don't know well" has gotten worse since having a baby. What's up with that!!

On another note. Super Why...Oh. My. Gosh. One of his favorites!! It's so cute and fun. The only downfall is that it comes on at the EXACT same time as Little Einsteins and, no, we don't have Tivo!

Okay, I can help you here.

When someone pays you a compliment, no matter how you feel about wheat they just said, simply say "Thank You".

I'm not kidding. It is hard at first, but it is a hugely important life lesson. It took me forever to learn it, but it made my life so much easier.

Okay, I'm done bugging you.

Re #53 and 54
Good advice Sarah....or try "How nice of you to say so...I really appreciate that.." I had problems with this for years..not so much now.

Re #55 and 56
You realise these two are in direct conflict????
