Thoughts on books, family, and life in one impressive package.
A Bit of Me(me) Button

Started by Danielle at There’s a Book, this weekly meme creates an opportunity for bloggers to put themselves out there and help readers get to know them outside of the bookish community.  In Danielle’s own words,

“We all leave our footprint on the world, in one way or another. We each, individually, do something or are someone that makes the world a little better just by being here. I created this weekly meme to get to know the blogging community I love just a bit better. To know what makes them tick, outside of books, that is.”

Posted each Saturday, Danielle dives into what makes us tick individually – our likes, dislikes, pictures, dreams, and so forth.  It is a great way to step back from books and remind each other what truly makes us tick.  I highly recommend you check out her post and the other meme participants!

This week’s question:

What is one thing you are really NOT good at?

One thing?  I could name several and not even delve past the surface.  I think the one thing I am horrible at is chit-chatting.  I struggle to make small talk, especially in settings where I don’t know anyone.  Even when I do know someone fairly well, I find it difficult to light on topics that can initiate a conversation.   I don’t feel comfortable doing it, and it is something I do not enjoy either.  This means that in unfamiliar situations, I am as silent as a clam and come across as the most uppity, snobbish person.  I’m not (or I think I’m not).  I just have no idea what to say to a bunch of strangers.  This can definitely be an issue in the business world and has meant I have not had certain opportunities come my way because of it.  At this point in time, all I can say is that I do try, but even my best effort is not as good as someone else’s initial attempt.  Chit-chatting is just one skill that I have failed to learn.

What about you?  What are you not good at?
