A few weeks ago I gave you my list of 20 things that are easier without an arm cast on.
Gigi in the comments suggested I make a list of the opposite
So here it is….
1. Finding the horn to beep in the car when driving and someone’s cut me off
Nick gets very frustrated at me as he’s like beep them, beep them and I’m like I can’t find the horn and by the time I do its too late
2. Not being a klutz
I’m naturally inclined to bump into things, drop things and generally be a klutz (I mean hey I broke my wrist right!). I don’t know if its because I get distracted as I do things or don’t concentrate but I will always be klutzy.
3. Reading maps
I’m terrible at directions, reading maps and geography in general. Thank goodness for Google Maps and Nick I get lost a lot less now.
4. Getting to sleep
I’m not and never have been one of those people that falls asleep as soon as my head hits the pillow. My head hits the pillow and my brain likes to throw a party of random thoughts.
5. Doing my hair in a French braid
My arms get tired, the pieces of hair I use are uneven.
6. Remembering to water the plants
We’ve owned multiple plants before and in spite of having a good memory I seem to block out the task of watering plants after you get them. Yes I’ve killed a lot of plants, for shame.
(Some of my best work)
My sister got all the art genes, especially when it comes to drawing.
8. Painting my nails and not chipping them within 30 minutes
Every time I paint my nails, something in my mind decides it is a great time to clean and I always end up chipping them. Always.
9. Taking selfies
I think because in my mind I feel completely silly taking them, that always translates to the picture too.
10. Doing any kind of sport
I love running, I love the gym because for the most part you don’t need as much hand eye coordination as say tennis, or any sport with a ball.
11. Remembering to take an umbrella
I will look outside, see it is raining and then usually forget 20 seconds later to actually take an umbrella with me.
12. Cooking steak
I always leave this up to Nick as I have a knack for overcooking it every time I try.
13. Drinking beer
Blech, no. I just don’t like it so no I haven’t go any better at it
14. Being friendly to the gym receptionist at 6am
I’m lucky to be awake and working out, I can barely mumble hello at the point I see her.
15. Remembering people’s names when they say it on first meeting
Ever time I say I’m going to repeat it to myself and every time I don’t and instantly forget.
16. Putting on gel or liquid eyeliner
I can get one eye done well, then the 2nd eye I always manage to stuff up and smudge (which is why I rarely wear it).
17. Not cleaning my plate
My mum drilled it into me from a young age to clean my plate. I’ve tried to break that habit but if I’m not thinking I will eat everything on my plate without checking if I’m still hungry.
18. Impulsively bidding on things on ebay
(I really needed this to use my phone in bed when my arm was broken)
I think of something, look it up on ebay and then 2 seconds later I’ve bid on it. It’s not usually really expensive stuff but some of it can be a waste of money.
19. Not binge watching tv shows
If I find a tv show that has been around for ages and I didn’t know it existed and was amazing I struggle not to binge watch the whole lot. Like True Detective, The Following, Awkward, Lindsay (yes Lindsay Lohan’s documentary series, it was trashy and awesome).
20. Checking my voicemail
I never, ever check my voicemail and in fact I haven’t even set it up properly, but people still leave me messages and I never listen to them I just look at who rang and call them back.
What is on your list of things in life that have not ever been easy for you?
