Perfect Title For Me..
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 it comes to real life, I often don't have a clue. Or maybe I'm so deep into my thoughts that I don't realize what's going on around me (ha). I find that I have difficulty concentrating and focusing and I'm easily distracted. I'm also forgetful, absentminded, and clumsy. I often remind myself that Einstein was too.
For those of us that experience this problem, it's a no-brainer when I say this is not an easy way to be. We are smart enough to know that we are also dumb, and I think I speak for a lot of people when I say we have tendencies to focus on our mistakes and are often very hard on ourselves. I know I am my own worst critic and I have to force myself to laugh when I do something airheaded. But it's a very difficult trait to change, if it's even possible at all! I'm glad to know I'm not alone though! If you feel like sharing your angst, I'm glad to have someone to complain with, so just message me :)
