John Marsden Writing Topic #378
Explain why you’re not a boring person (Sue Germein). How do you bore yourself?
I’m not a boring person because I have talents, flaws, quirks and a personality that is unique and make me different from everyone else, however this could be said for everyone.
When it comes to me my talents are writing and craft. My flaws include but are not limited to: being overly emotional on occasion, having a short fuse, impatience and perfectionism. My quirks would include: checking that all the switches in my home are off a few times before I leave for the day and the way I physically react when I listen to music. My personality is a story for another day ha ha.
I bore myself by completing the same routine over and over again. I’m talking big routines like having to catch two trains to get to work, doing my groceries every Saturday and going to the gym every weekend.
