Inspired by And Far Away, here are some of my confessions:

  • I’m very clumsy. I bump into things, drop almost everything I carry and I’m always zoned out
  • I’m a very bad driver and have been in a number of minor accidents. I quit driving after I got engaged.
  • I can’t sew. My mom used to take care of my missing buttons, now my husband does.
  • I only learned to cook last year.
  • I used to speak really fast, causing me to stutter. As I grew older, I learned to slow down a bit.
  • I quit playing the violin after ten years for no real reason.
  • I hardly do any exercise and I keep gaining weight.
  • I’m extremely hard on myself. If I was born in the right era I’d have been a self-flagellator.
  • I have no sense of direction whatsoever. After 15 months in Doha, I can still get lost in our neighborhood.
  • I can’t seem to get enough of watching movies.
  • I’m very unorganized and can be messy sometimes.
  • I’m an insomniac and have been since I was thirteen.
  • I’m very impatient with a very short attention span.
  • I never blush.

Ok. There you have it. I would understand if, after reading this, you’d never want to visit this blog again!

  1. Hahaha, that was interesting to read! I share this one “I used to speak really fast, causing me to stutter. As I grew older, I learned to slow down a bit. “, but I guess I still need a few more years to learn to slow down…

  2. Oh my gosh. here’s a shocker,
    I have so much in common with you!
    The first five ones, are hands down, soooo me! (I still got a little more work to do on the way I talk, though, *sigh*)
    I hardly do any exercise despite subscriptions to various gyms, health magazines, diet centers.. oh the list goes miles long πŸ™
    I have no sense of direction, either. I find myself asking for directions at a campus I’ve been attending for two years now.
    I’m extremely messy.
    And oh my gosh, slap me silly…this one is just too much.. I NEVER blush either.
    I’m not sure I’ll ever know why.. mama says it’s because I’m samoora, but I doubt that has anything to do with it! No fair!
    Alright, I suddenly feel down πŸ™ Choclate, anybody?

  3. To me it sounds as though all the other items are related to your insomnia, which is related to your weight. If you are overweight a bit, you will snore, and this perhaps causes the insomnia in conjunction with not exercising enough. By the way, don’t exercise in the evening because it will raise your metabolism and that will keep you awake at night. Exercise in the morning or before 6 PM (1800 hours). So, sleep on your side so you do not snore as much, and lose some weight so you get some sleep.

  4. Here is my confession.
    For years I have tried to find something wrong with me. And I can’t.
    No, seriously, Natasha’s “confessions” are a form of self-flagellation. And they are totally not fair.
    There is day and there is night. If one is to make a list of confessions of negative qualities (as they see them) then they should also list the positive qualities.
    Natasha is one of the sweetest people I know in Dullsville. And I have never seen her drop anything, bump into anything, or hurt anyone. Except when she doesn’t make me tea in the office Canteen (grrrr…)
    Okay, had to say that.
    As for Farooha, hey there’s a long line behind me waiting to slap you silly. Thanx for the invite, heheh.
    Just kidding…

  5. Don’t forget who loves ya, baby! (Maybe you are too young to remember that line!). In addition to your dear hubby, you’ve got an eternal Bridegroom who knew all that and is crazy about you. I think He even created you with a few of those qualities for His good pleasure and our enjoyment!

  6. Natasha, enjoyed this πŸ™‚ I envy you on the last one, I blush so easily even for any sweet word or comment. Also when I’m angry it shows on me easily πŸ˜› and you know, although I think I’m not clumsy, but somehow around my dearest MMM I always am πŸ™‚

    • Farooha, You share the first 5? Wow that’s impressive;-) Being clumsy can be embarassing at times. I hate it.
    • Mark, Yeah the lack of sleep is the reason why I’m alwys zoned out. I’m not sure about the snoring though πŸ˜‰
    • Metalordie, Thanks for the compliment. Okay, I will make you tea the next time we are at the office. I promise.
    • Arash, The violin is back in Jordan πŸ™
    • Amin, You think?
    • Roba, Thank you for inspiring me to write this post.
    • Kinzi, Indeed.
    • Hubby, Do you still love me πŸ˜‰
    • Eman, At least you blush πŸ˜‰
    • Linda, Can’t wait to read your confessions.
  7. My Confessions

    Inspired by Roba, here are my confessions, the ones I can publish that is πŸ˜› 1. I’m quite anti-social most of the time. I’d rather stay at home alone than go out and see people. 2. I got my driving…

  8. How delightful. Starting out with a confession. I’ll drop back for more confessions and more, I’m sure, insight.

  9. Metalordie,
    Feel free to slap me silly and tickle me pink all you want.
    Heck, I’m bored, you’re willing, might as well make something outta it, huh?
    Natasha, yeah I do share all 5.. As for the driving thing..(in case you were wondering).. I’ve never felt brave enough to drive. My sisters drive whenever they get the chance to…and yet I still find myself unready. It creeps the bleep outta me πŸ™ So, I figure if I were ever to drive, I’d be a horrible driver.

  10. Very Interesting Natasha. We share some of these……but I would classify my driving as excellent. Four minor accidents in 15 years and only a handful of traffic citations. Why all my friends refuse to ride in my car is beyond me. πŸ™‚
    “I can’t seem to get enough of watching movies. ” Kinda picked up on that one over the past 7 months reading this blog. Just how many movies have you seen, woman??? πŸ™‚ I think you are addicted.

  11. Farooha,
    Glad to oblige.
    Only if you promise to listen to hours of Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Overkill, Jag Panzer, Impaled Nazerene, Sepultura, Anacrusis, Annihilator, Megadeth, Motorhead, Astral Doors, Dark Tranquility, Children of Bodom, Meshuggah, In Flames, Cemetary, Anathema, Crematory, Skyclad, Slayer, Metalium, Metallica, Dark Angel, Napalm Death, Alice Cooper, Ozzy Osbourne, Black Sabbath, Samson, Def Leppard, King Diamond, Mercyful Fate, Fates Warning, Finntroll, Amorphis, Venom, and ManoWar…

  12. hahaha, metal is geting his freak on, but i think if she listens to hours of all of that stuff, what you claim to be “music” she might as well check herself into an insane assylum πŸ˜‰

  13. Metal, I guess that list explains some of your slight tendencies toward melancholy? Maybe consider feeding that brilliant mind of yours something a little more hopeful? Not that you aren’t totally entertaining just the way you are. πŸ™‚ Does the tea comment mean you work with Jeff and Natasha?
    Natasha, I bet you start driving again in the US. Maybe not, though. When driving through Linda’s area I had more heart attacks than on Zahran street. People may have obeyed the traffic laws, but they did it going 90mph and I kept expecting drivers to act like Ammanites!

  14. okay, i confess kinzie, that was me driving by at 90 mph and cutting you off. remember me, the one with the frame on my license plate that says “my horn does not work so watch out for the finger.” yeah, that was me, hehehehe.

  15. Kinzi,
    Brilliant minds and melancholia (nice term, I think I’ll use it) go hand in hand.
    Our patron saint is Edgar. As in Edgar Allan Poe.
    Funny enough, Edgar can be called Ed.
    Iron Maiden’s patron is Eddie the ‘ed.
    See, no escaping the cyclical influence of metal.
    So Kinzi, next time you are trying to swerve away from Linda’s insane driving, pop in Sammy Hagar’s “I can’t drive 55” and take it up a notch.

  16. insane driving? hello metal, that is what we call “too fast too furious.”
    see you guys what caffiene does to me? it makes me say stupid things like that.

  17. What is this all about?? So, now that you have catalogued what you perceive as your shortcomings..get over them!
    As for that cooking and sewing stuff…Phooey. My WWII era Mother couldn’t cook either. After my grandfather died, she had to go out and support her Mother and 5 younger sisters.
    And my Mother used to say when she couldn’t find her way, “Well I have this inner ear problem”…worked for her all those years!
    And of course, I do not regard watching movies as a fault. You have definitely married into the right family!
    I hope you and Jeff get to visit here sometime…and we’ll all pile up and just cook, eat and watch movies!

  18. Linda, you truly are Urduniyya if that was you! Can you believe I drag raced another girl yesterday from Jordan Telecom circle? We had a blast! My pastor used to say that men’s right feet was the last part of their body to “get saved”. Make sure you email me for a phone number and I help you learn how to drive-to-survive in Jordan next summer.
    Metal, now you are talking. Sammy was my favorite in HS. Red, I want red…don’t tell me he is in one of those bands you mentioned now?
