Ok this was a really challenging post! Owning virtually no self esteem whatsoever it took me like an hour to think up fofive good qualities about myself. But hey, I love a challenge so here goes:
*I stand up for what I believe in. Always. Evenm t\\n to my own detriment. I actually get very aggressive about it, but that's not a good quality so let's just ignore that one...
*I'll do anything to help one of my friends. Even if it's out of my way, disadvantages me, it doesn't matter. Isn't that what friends are for?
*I'm a perfectioonist. Whilst this does have some downsides it also means I'm reliable and organised and responsible.
* I'm a very punctual person - I guess that ties up with realiabilty.
Ok I really can not think of any others. Let me sleep on it, hopefully I'll be back!
10-07-2001, 12:48 PM
:stars I can sing (well, I *like* to sing anyway...)
:stars I am good at taking care of my kitties!
:stars I love nature and camping (well, that's not a talent or anything, but I suppose that it's a positive thing about me :happy)
:stars I am silly sometimes (in a good way!)
:stars I'm not a wimpy girl (though people like to think I am!)
These are the only things that I could think of... believe me, they took long enough!
10-07-2001, 05:13 PM
I am caring
I love animals
I am a good listener
I am good to people
I am learning to be good to myself

:flower I am insatiably curious
:flower I am passionate
:flower I am compassionate
:flower I have a good photographic eye
:flower I have a good sense of humor
