Thanks For The Complement, But I Can't Seem To Agree.

Sigh. The story of my life. I try to handle complements better now, as opposed to how I handled them all the way into my early twenties.

Random guy: "You have a great figure!" 

Younger critical me: "Are you kidding me? I used to have a good figure, but now I gained a lil around my middle and in the thigh area. I need to seriously work out or something!"

Response from current me: "Err, thank you."

I really enjoy writing and I do enjoy reading my own writing, but I'm always this first to criticize my grammar, punctuation, syntax, etc. No matter how many times I hear that I'm good at something, I always seem to find as many flaws in it as possible. Lately I try to utilize this in a positive manner and not let it deter me from doing what I'm most passionate about. It's not he easiest thing in the world to do, but it helps me be a bit of a perfectionist in everything I do. When I paint my nails it has to be my version of perfect. I HATE chipped nail polish, so once it starts chipping I fix or get rid of it! My desk at work is always tidy and I try to make sure that everything is in it's place, always! I check my make up to make sure I always look fresh. I hate it when my bedroom or the kitchen is messy! I'm not a control freak, maybe just a neat freak. Gosh, now I'm going off the point here...

I always strive to be more and do more even though procrastination is a heavy chip on my shoulder.

So even though my mom's one of my biggest critics, I'm still the worse! Is that a good or bad thing?
