    New Blonde Moments

    My newest blond thing to do actually appeared quite a while ago, but has become more and more frequent. At work, we have to use our keys to let ourselves into the faculty restrooms. Recently, on my way out, I will pull out my key to unlock the door to let me OUT. A few times...

    Oh This Is Perfect

     This is PERFECT for me. I know my stuff in what I study and learn. I can tell you a synopsis on some plays by Shakespeare and give you information on it and stuff like that. But when it comes to some things, I don't know what to say or do. I'm what I call, "Book...

    When I was 16 I fell in love with a girl who came from a very good home:her father was a well known person on national level here in our country.I came from a very poor home:one of seven kids and we stayed in the poorest part of our big city. We had this very serious relationship...

    The Big Bang Theory

    I am not where I would like to be intellectually. On the inside as I watch myself on a day to day basis and analyze my decisions, I shake my head. It seems as though I fail to comprehend many things that I feel I should know. I read a quote once that said “in your teens you...

    Smart Guys Are Dumb Sometimes

    I literally possess a genius level IQ. Lest this be misconstrued as bragging, let me point out that it's only a few points above that line. So yes, I can legitimately lay claim to the "g" word, but I can also do some outright dumb things. Car keys? Don't give them to me. They...

    People Underestimate Me.

    I've always had this problem of people always underestimating me because of my "airheaded" moments. I'm that type of person who didn't do well in high school because I didn't try whatsoever, but I somehow got into a great school because of my essay, and I am now doing very well...

    I've always been smart.  I have never tried very hard in school but somehow have always managed to pull off A's, even now in college, and graduated high school with honors.  However, I'm a total ditz.  My head is always in the clouds and so I am not very observant...

    I Am In Fact A Fecking Idiot

    I certainly like to think I am intelligent. I'm no genius, but intelligent. I am fairly certain this is debatable to those around me. The vast majority of the things that come out of my mouth are, well, pretty stupid, the vast majority of the time. I've been known to do equally...

    I'm almost always completely spaced out.  My mind is constantly off in another world, I get preoccupied with random thoughts, I can't think straight at times, and I definitely can't focus on pretty much anything that I'm supposed to be doing.  Once I percieve something...

    If there's one way I could describe myself, it would certainly be intelligent but airheaded. I'm not a genius, but I do have smarts, but apparently they are mostly only booksmarts, because I did really well in school and I always score well on tests, including IQ tests. But when...
