Sometimes as bloggers we post only the pretty things, the best pictures (out of 100), and the projects that are a success and none of the failures. I am GUILTY of this too. Sometimes if a pic is just for Instagram I will just take one picture, but if it is for a blog post I can take up to 25-50 shots (all different angles of course, with different props) and then choose the best one. However I am human and my life is far from perfect, I am far from perfect. So here are some reasons why I suck….
1. Right now just about every surface of my house needs to be dusted. October has been hectic and I don’t think I have done it once. Vacuum, sweeping, laundry, moping, wash my sheets done that, but dusting nope. I was sadly reminded of it this morning. I think with the heat kicking in it is a little dustier than normal. It is on my list to do this weekend though. I SUCK! *UPDATE: I dusted every surface of my house this past weekend Woohoo!!**
2. I sometimes choose to spend time alone than to go out. I get overwhelmed when I don’t have time to decompress and to veg out. Between work, Seamus, the gym, and blogging I don’t have time to do so during the week so the weekends are it. Too many events and I shut down. I SUCK!
3. Sometimes I don’t return emails because I don’t know what else to say. Sometimes I think a million things in my head of how to respond and then decide nothing would be best. I SUCK!
4.Sometimes I talk too much about myself and I have to remember to listen more, and talk less. It is usually because I am trying to connect or relate to what someone is saying, but I just need to shut up sometimes. I SUCK!
5. I get really frustrated when I am trying to learn something new. This comes down to my perfectionist Type A personality, but sometimes I need to remember to cut myself some slack! I SUCK!
I am stopping at five things because really that is all my ego can take right now.
P.S. Sorry for the cussing, but stupid, or stink just wouldn’t have the same impact!
And because we all know that every blog post has to have at least one photo or you have failed at life 😉 here is some pics from my last cake decorating class.
Please tell me I am not alone and that sometimes you suck too!!

YOU DO NOT SUCK; YOU ROCK MY WORLD. that cake and everything you post on here is awesome.
and with the emails; my inbox is OUT OF CONTROL so i’m desperately trying to respond to all of the comments but it seems to escape me. it’s like, ok, i just answered 934589743897543 emails…so WHY IS THERE STILL 2342904578 emails left?! and then when i just can’t take it anymore (which i’m pretty close to now), i just delete them after i read them and just leave comments on their blog. but that’s ok since they want comments on their blog anyway, right?
Thanks girl!!! You rock!! Yes, the emails are so out of control it is never ending just when you clean it up more comes in. So relate to that one. Blog comments are so much better!! 🙂

First off you don’t suck!! but I totally know what you mean! Recently I have been all about that staying in and being lazy life. I’ve turned down all kinds of fun stuff! haha I SUCK!!!
Thanks, girl! Yes sometimes I need to just go have fun, chores will always be there when I get back. Though with it being so cold staying in under the blankets sounds so good!! 🙂
SMD @ Life According to Steph says
I’m laughing that you think SUCK is cursing. Good Lord the things that come out of my mouth.
I freaking hate dusting. It comes back immediately.
Oh trust me I have a mouth like a sailor but I try not to on my blog because I have family reading and I still feel funny cursing in front of my Dad. Damn catholic guilt! Dusting and dogs really does not go together at all!!
I appreciate your honesty! That’s not that sucky… at least I hope not because I vacuumed this past weekend for the first time since moving into my apartment. On September 1.
Thanks! Moping the floors and vacuuming is the worst!! Way too much labor involved.
#2 and #4 – That is me too! Oh and I couldn’t tell you the last time I mopped. That’s my Thursday chore, but lately by the time Thursday rolls around I only want to lay on the couch and not move!
Glad I am not the only one!! Not moving sounds good right around now especially with it getting so dark and so cold early! Thanks for making me feel less like a total loser! 🙂
Kate @ Another Clean Slate says
You totally do not suck. I had two friends visit in the last week and both times had to apologize that I hadn’t cleaned beforehand… life is busy!
So glad I am not the only one! Life is so busy and trying to fit it all in is hard!
If needing and craving alone time means you suck then I suck, too! Even if I just drive home alone and listen to the radio, I need to just be in my head for a little while every few days!
So glad I am not alone! I need alone time daily to keep my sanity!
I need to listen more and talk less. It was proven today when a co-worker (who I am fairly close with) said to me “sarah, listen to what I have to say before you say anything. So obviously I say “yes! no problem.” Honestly, within the first 5 words of her talking, I said something. She told me to just shut up and listen HAHA!
That is epic!! It is so important to listen more and to ask more questions.
Katy @ TastyLittleCrouton.com says
I am 100% with you on #2 and #4!! Hahaha we’re all allowed to suck sometimes. Your cake picture looks great! So you don’t suck at that, even if you’re sometimes frustrated with how long it takes to learn 🙂 Oh, and about the dusting, I hired Merry Maids. I love not having to do the crap around the house that I don’t want to do, and they can clean more in 2 hours than I could in 10! So worth it, at least for me!!
I guess we all have our moments! Thank you, the cake decorating is really fun and it’s a lot to learn but very rewarding too when I get it right. Having someone else do it would be amazing!
Leeann @ Join the Gossip says
Um, you are getting pretty dang good at cake decorating!
And you def don’t suck. All of those things are normal and we’re all guilty of them. Het, just admitting it makes you better than most 🙂
Thanks, I am still learning but it is getting easier. Glad I am not the only one who does them. I think it’s important to share our weaknesses as well as our strengths.
Haha I love it! Way to be real!
Thanks! I don’t want people to think I am all sunshine and roses. I mess up a lot! 🙂
Emily T says
Being a hermit sometimes is the bomb! That’s not sucking, that’s saving your sanity! 🙂
So true!! It is the only way I keep my sanity. Otherwise I am a grumpy gus!!
Lisa Navarra says
You are definitely awesome and you have to give yourself credit for it! Especially the cakes decorations you’ve been creating these days. Of course, we all have things to work on but I feel that it’s all about focusing on it in a positive and productive way.
Thank you! I guess it was my way of saying I am normal and sometimes I don’t get everything right! Everyday we can strive to be better though!
Everyone sucks at more than one thing and we all make sacrifices of how life is “supposed to look” for how we need it to. I get overwhelmed when I’m too busy/social, too. I’d much rather spend my evenings at home with Michael instead of partying. I hate hanging clothes up which was a huge problem before I got married. Now the deal is I do the laundry, I fold the clothes, and Michael does all of the hanging. Otherwise there would be a neat pile on a chair that I would use instead of the closet. We each have our quirks and we work on them or we don’t depending on what life is throwing at us, but I don’t think that means we completely suck.
No, not completely just at times! Haha! We are human so we have our moments. 🙂
Amanda Bumgarner says
You totally don’t suck! But thanks for sharing 🙂 ALSO, I need to dust so bad! Oh man.
Thanks, girl! It is a necessary evil but I always forget to do it. Oops!
pretty sure I suck for exactly the same reasons 🙂
Glad I am not the only one! It is good to cut ourselves some slack because we are not perfect and aren’t supposed to be. I need to keep reminding myself so I don’t forget! 🙂
