Fave Five Friday: Talents

May 22nd, 2009

(This one's actually wifey's suggestion. Mad props to her!)

So last week, we went to watch our friend Heejin perform a piano recital at the University of Hawaii's Orvis Auditorium. Sistah's got some skills lemme tell you!

After witnessing Jin's super-talent in person, wifey suggested I put this out to all y'all to see what hidden (or not so hidden) talents we gots ourselves. Hopefully, you won't have to reach (like me) to find your 5. 😛


  1. Friendly/People Person & Happy/Never Grouchy - for the most part, I think I'm a friendly, approachable, people person kinda guy. I hate people who are unfriendly, snobby and/or stand-off-ish, or who think they are better than you. My close friends will probably tell you I'm a little too friendly when I get all touchy feely with them! LOL!  I don't understand people who can go through life being unhappy. You have one life, why not make the most of it right? Don't worry, be happy!
  2. King of Nicknames - I love making up nicknames for people I know. You folks up in hurr, my co-workers, friends, etc. Loves it!
  3. Semi-athletic - I can usually pick up anything that involves, throwing, catching, running, and jumping, with a little bit of hand-eye coordination.
  4. Never Give Up Attitude - not sure if this is a blessing or a curse, but I don't like failing at anything, so I keep at things until there's no more keeping-at anymore. Ha!
  5. Jack of All Trades Master of None - this one's probably due to the trait above. And maybe my short attention span as well. 😛 Whether it be coding for the web, strumming a few chords on my uke, spinning a basketball on my finger, blurting out nonsense via this blog, etc., I'd like to think that I'm pretty decent at whatever I decide to put my mind to. Don't think I've ever become a "Master" at any one thing (even though I'm sometimes called a "Webmaster"! LOL!), but at least I try my best. 8)

I don't even think any of those above are talents. I tol' you I was reachin'! Haha! Anyway, I'm sure you guys can name some REAL talents that you possess. Share, share!

Happy VHO7V Friday y'all! Have a good weekend and I'll see y'all on Monday! 🙂

    Okay, this is waaayyy late, but here goes...

    - I don't know why, but I'm pretty good at remembering phone numbers. It doesn't really come in handy anymore though (now that we can store numbers in our cell phones).

    - I guess I'm a pretty decent cook and baker. I like to try different recipes anyways.

    - I'm somewhat crafty. I hardly do it anymore, but I enjoy card making and scrapbooking.

    - I've been told I'm athletic. Although, I don't think I am, really. At least not anymore. Maybe in my younger days (used to swim a lot).

    - Ha, ha. Ok, not really a talent, but I'm an excellent shopper! Well, at least, I enjoy searching for all of the bargains and making the most of coupons. 😉

    - And, like others mentioned, I'm great at making that chocolate disappear! Food (sushi and pasta, especially), too for that matter. 😛
