Focus on the good. Forget the bad. Let's also forget the ugly.

Well, it's Friday and who really has time to think of creative blog posts. So...I found this over on Whitney's blog and then she sent me to Erin's blog and now I bring it to my blog. It's just a bloggy idea train leading from awesomelicious person, to awesomelicious person to then, me, average person.

The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

The Good:
  • I am a really good friend. I can say that without feeling conceited because I stinkin' know I am a good friend. Not only do my friends tell me that, but I just know. I care a lot for people and I am always thinking about the loved ones in my life. I always want to make them feel loved and special. 
  • I am a hard worker. I work to the best of my ability no matter what the task is. I work like a beast when I am at work whether it be lifting, carrying or moving things, or just waiting on customers. When I have school work to do I always do my best - when I am motivated, obviously.
  • I can write like a boss. You may not see it a ton on my blog, unless you find my natural narrative-writing voice to be amazing. But when it comes to academic papers and things of that nature, I am your girl. I can pretend like I read an entire book and write a four page essay on it. I am really good at making myself sound smart. 
The Bad:
  • I never stick to anything long term. I know that sounds awful, but it's pretty true. I start to exercise and diet and then I eventually fall off the wagon for a few weeks after a glazed donut walks across my path. Which leads us into...
  • I have no willpower. Food is my weakness. Food is also the way to my heart. If I see anything chocolate, sugar coated or salty, I will eat it. And eat, eat, eat....
  • I am addicted to my iPhone. It's a serious problem. It is always glued to my hand. I always find something new to do, download, play or check. I am forever on social media and I use my phone for absolutely everything. Hi, my name is Marissa and I am an iPhone addict.
  • I am socially awkward. I don't know why because I am very outgoing. It's just that in some situations I try too hard or don't try enough and things just don't work out. 
The Ugly:
  • I am a very jealous person. It's not crazy, but I just sometimes feel jealous like when my friends have plans without me and things like that. 
  • I tear myself down. I don't really think I am a wonderful person or see the things about me that people tell me about. So I usually just ignore or don't believe people when they tell me good things about myself. I rather not think about myself. 
  • I compare myself to other people. Self explanatory, really. 
And, I am going to end today with linking up with the Whitney for #backthatazzup Friday!

This song brings me right back to my 8th grade formal.
Oh boy, really awkward times in my life.
But this song still makes me white girl rock out.

Have a good weekend!


  1. Love this post!! I will toot my horn and say that I am a beastmode academic paper writer also. If only it weren't plaigarism to do that as a career! Pretty sure comparing yourself to other people was engrained into our genes. Blah!! You are adorable and I am now following via GFC!
    Happy Friday
