#SocialChallenge Day 29: What do you think people misunderstand most about you?

Apparently, I’m not mean or fun…

I think that since I’m pretty outspoken in my writing, people mistake me for being mean.  But, Hubber disagrees.

Hubber: People who read your blog, think you live a fun, exciting life.  But really, you’re pretty damn boring.  They don’t think you’re mean.  They think you’re fun.

Me: When do I ever brag about having a bunch of fun and exciting shit going on in my life?  I believe I’m pretty clear about how UN-FUN my shit is!

Hubber: It might be the snark.  You’re snarky in your writing, but in real life, you’re pretty tame.

Me: That’s complete bullshit.  I’m snarky ALL the time.  I just don’t talk to a lot of people on a regular basis… so they have to read about it.  But, that doesn’t make ME un-fun…it just makes the regular, everyday shit I do un-fun.

Hubber: Sure it does.

Me:  Maybe I’m UN-FUN because I’m married to someone who is UN-FUN!  Maybe I shoulda married Terry Crews when I had the chance.  I bet I’d be fun if I were his wife!

Hubber: Oh, because THAT could have actually happened.  He sucked as President Camacho in Idiocracy, by the way.

Me: Everyone sucked in Idiocracy.  Even YOU!

Hubber: You’re dumb.  And, I’m done with this conversation.

So, I’m back to square one, here.  I guess Hubber and I both have a point.  Either people think I’m mean, or they think I’m fun… and they’d be mistaken on both counts.  I’m actually a pretty nice, boring gal.

#SocialChallenge Day 29: The Quiet Ones

The Quiet Ones

I am one of the quiet ones. Or so people think. Most people mistake my not speaking up at every opportunity as not having an opinion. I have opinions. I just don’t feel the need to share them all of the time.

Most people would mistake my quietness for weakness. Don’t get it twisted. I am as strong-willed as they come. I just choose to reserve my strength for when it is necessary use it. That is usually when someone is trying to pull the wool over my eyes. I just sit back and when the time is right, I lower the boom. And my no means no.

tarabuck_quiet_is_weakMost people assume since I’m quiet, I don’t have fun. I have plenty of fun. My type of fun doesn’t have to include alcohol or hanging at the club. Side Note: If the only way you can have fun is with a drink in your hand, you may have a problem. I like hanging out with family and friends. We can have a blast anywhere.

Most people assume that because I’m quiet, I’m not making any moves. Believe me, I’m making moves just fine. I don’t have to announce everything I do. When I want you to know something or need help, I know how to communicate.

Don’t underestimate the quiet ones. They just might surprise you.
