Some of you may have no musical talent... some can't paint well and some don't know how to use Photoshop. But having a talent is not all about art... There are things, even small ones, that we are better at compared to the people around us...



- I can recognize a face (e.g in a movie) even if the face has changed/aged. One time I recognized an actor I had seen only twice from the back of his neck... My friends were shocked.

-My hearing is better that in most people. I can hear mobile phones ringing in bags when no one else can and other things.

- I can mimic voices of cartoons and other characters (Gollum, South Park characters) pretty well (as I am told)


So what are yours????

^i can mimic well, too! :jmp:

*i can sing.

*i'm a bottomless pit of information when it comes to movies and actors.

*i'm a good judge of character.

*i manage and spend money very well.

*i'm pretty good at telling people off.. which is not really a good thing i guess, lol.

(I don't think its bad to list off good qualiies, it's not the same as saying you're the BEST at something, so i dunno, its good to have confidence in one's self.)

I'm good at abstract thinking, I say this because when I was in school most of my classmates had a problem with philosophy classes, mainly with following philosophy texts; and for me understanding them was always kinda intuitive.

I think that's about it.. :p

Picking out things at random from something that seems innocent:p...
Playing Guitar by ear
Singing...although everyone else say I am good..I think I sound...bad!:p lol...
Drums and keyboard,

Real strength I suppose...standing up to Bullies and never backing down...and then standing up to my friends...which seems even more diffcult:)

If one of my friends is upset about something, I know even if they try and hide it, and I always know why as well. Thatís a weird thing to be good at.

I can drink enormous amounts of alcohol.

At the same amount, I'm just having a little drinkie and watching stuff on Youtube to cheer me up for the party. :D

Also, I'm fantastic. :)

Not sure If I'm better at things than most people.. but I am multi talented. Musical, artistic and a real smart ass know-it-all *****. Great at cutting hair, organizing things/interior design and have an eye for fashion. I give great massages and I can make people laugh very easily.

And I'm even a tedious bore at times, some I'm even good at it!

Beat THAT! :tea:

And I can annoy and whine quite well as well..

I apparently heal abnormally faster than most people. I had a wart on my knee and the nurse put on some kind of acid. I came back five days later completely healed from the acid and she said it takes most people three weeks for complete recovery. So my sister and i cut ourselves (not like that, just one little paper cut like scrape) on our arms and I healed the next day while she still had the cut.

I also have a really really high metabolism and I can eat literally anything and stay stick thin. When I over eat I actually lose weight. it's weird.


Guess I'm a mutant lol

Spanish (Everyone around me asks me for help)
Computers (Hardly anyone at my school even knows what Linux is)
Photoshop (GIMP) Manipulations (I can't think of any of my friends who have even so much as touched PS or GIMP)http://i44.************/20ijeb9.jpg

I can perform most of lara's moves. Im constantly getting told off for talking the fun way up a flight of stairs. Jump up, grab the edge of a step, swing up to the next one and all the way to the top. Then use only your arms to climb up the vertical banister supports and jump over the railing. I can do sprint-rolls, lara's running, swinging on horizontal poles, climb in up vertical poles etc.

Basicly most of lara's moves.

I can pull off hers and almost every character in tr's voice aswell. How many times have i re-enacted the TR3 london cutscene i dont know, somehow i just nail my animations, i even make lara's huah when i jump without knowing it now.

I have pretty good short term memory, I can just read through a list of notes to memorise anything for an exam, whilst others find it harder.

I'd also like to think I can work things out for myself.
