    Talent? What's That?

    I always wish I were a great writer and artist but I really don't have any talents at all. I've never done anything and had someone say, "Oh, she's a natural." I am awesome at watching TV and biting my nails, but I don't know if anybody would consider those things as talents.

    If Live Was A Game

    For the longest time my view of talents, why some people have them and some don't, was colored by an idealistic thought that somehow all people have similar amount of talent. It would be like creating a character in a game: you have certain amount of 'points' that you place in...

    And I like it fine like that. Sometimes. I do wish I was better at drawing and painting because I have so many creative images stuck in my head but no proper way to get them out and onto paper. But, I'm okay with just being average and not being the world's next super...

    NONE. Absolutely no talent. I can do a lot of things but nothing very well. Nope. I have no talent. I can pick up a simple drum and make absolutely no musical note. It's ridiculous. Living with/around musically talented people who find it so natural to make music and I can't...

    Because one who can utilize whatever scrap of talent they have in a creative manner is far far better off than one who has mountains of talent and utilizes them plainly.

    All I can say about myself is

    that I'm taking piano lessons, 3 to 4 months in total. Which on it's own is nothing special, even if I get much better I'll still be one of the millions who play piano nicely, not a genius at it. Honestly I'd pay for a cyanide pill.

    Can't really do anything. I mean that in all seriousness. I thought that I could draw, starting to realize that ain't true. I wasted all that time on something which I'll never be good at. Now I don't know what do.
