Flaws out!

I was reading Making Memories and she had an awesome post that was going along my current blog train of thought. I've been blog surfing alot lately and have noticed so many blogs that just make me want to vomit. I can NOT stand to read people's blogs, where they type these blogs that play them as the ultimate victim or mother Teresa. They play up a blog full of bullshit to suck the comments that they want out of their readers which in turn elevates their bullshitness aura.

Rebecca at Making Memories had a post dedicated to her flaws. She posted in order to remind herself and others that she is human. And as we all know, or should know, we all have flaws. Those of you who read my blog have seen my many many flaws.

But.....wouldn't it be nice to see them in bullet format?!?! For your reading enjoyment, here are (just a small pinch) of my flaws.

  • I have severe ADHD and tend to never want to finish a project unless it can be done in less than 6 seconds
  • I frequently skip a shower and take one every other day
  • I'm loud....really loud
  • I speak the truth way to often
  • I speak the truth loudly...way to loudly
  • I can't cook worth a crap
  • I HATE to clean
  • When I get overwhelmed, I want to quit
  • I wear two different colored socks
  • I'm lazy
  • I'm gullible
  • I love greasy food or any food that is bad for me
  • I'm a part time closet smoker
  • I love to play the devil's advocate in any and EVERY conversation

Ok, that is just a small pinch of them. Yes, I am human. No, I am not perfect. No, I do not have the perfect family. I do not have perfect kids. I do not have the perfect job. I do not have the perfect car. I do not have perfect friends. I do not have perfect habits.

And, I wouldn't change it for the world. There are times I am furious beyond all end, but it's my life! And, I love it!

So, if you're a yuppie...cut loose and be less than perfect with me!


  1. I've been noticing the same trend. Like us women have to fit some kind of freakin' mold. Yeah, whatever. I cuss alot, eat too much, sometimes scream at my kids, and I hate the world. So what?

  2. Look at are on a blogging role!!

    What the hell...I'm not a perfect? Come on!!
    No seriously I'm not so I will list a few of my flaws as well.
    *I swear way to much
    *I'm finding that I lose my patience way to fast these days
    *I still kind of hate to admit I need help sometimes
    *I'm admitting that I really do hate some people. Ok, maybe hate is too strong of a word, how about severely dislike some people
    *I'm know I have millions of more flaws, but it is 1:00a.m and I need to go to sleep.

    By the way, that's a good picture of you and Malibu Man

  3. Jennie,
    You have to look from a very specific perspective to view any of those as a flaw. For instance, your dislike of cleaning and love of unhealthy (but delicious) food are only flaws if viewed from some value system wherein these things are bad or the opposites can be seen as virtuous. Good and bad are value judgements that are 100% subjective, meaning they vary as many ways as there are people. What I see is a list of facts, put whatever value you want to them.

  4. One I will never be able to admit on my blog because my husband reads it and it's possible grounds for divorce in our house...part time closet smoker.'s our secret!

  5. I like your new picture. I hope you have fun at my blog and know I am a real person. I always wonder at times what people my think of me.
    I am the same way when I get overwhelmed just watch out world. Great post.

  6. I love your new picture. You look so pretty! Also love the post. So many blogs make it sound like the writer has a picture perfect life. It makes me feel shitty about my own life to read these! Who needs that?!?!

  7. Jennie...I love how honest you are. I loved it even when you said bullshit! I know some blogs curse you for even swearing in their comments section.

    You have flaws and your okay with that. Perfect! =)
