This game is a chance for people to say something about themselves that's good, whether it's something you think you're under-appreciated for or just something you get told often. So go on, brag. But only one brag per person, please, and no picking on anyone else!
I have an honest view of myself (flaws and all) and accept myself more these days when my body is aging and falling apart, I don't have all the answers like I thought I did when I was young and religious.
I dropped out of school int the 10th grade, and received my GED in just four weeks. So, I pretty much saved myself almost 2 years of sitting in boring classes learning all I needed to learn in 1/18 of the time. (I included time off for summer vacation, according to months I would not have been in school)
I kind of regret doing that, as employers only see that graduation paper as a credit in your favor. I know some really stupid people who are high school graduates. How does that employer know that the person they are hiring just didn't cheat their way to a diploma? And, how some college grads might have been one party away from a coma?
There are some really wealthy people out there who got rich on what they self learned, and not what they learned in school. Unfortunately the days of anyone getting rich like that again, is few and far between.
I actually take the time to think through opinions opposed to mine, trying to see someone else's point of view, even when they are expressed by people I don't like [no one who has posted in this thread yet, as far as I can see]. ...but that doesn't mean I automatically respond back to those people.
I'm kind and considerate to a large extent, although I can be a bit of a smartass. I do like joking around and lightly teasing people...especially if they're taking themselves and everything way too seriously. Come on...lighten up, already.
I know that whatever I may have that's good about me is something a whole lot of other people have as well. In other words, I'm not someone who thinks I have a monopoly on whatever any "good thing about me" is.
I was reading a threat started a while ago (and since then discontinued) about 'the ideal human' and was intrigued by the responses. I really enjoyed the topic and was wondering what kind of input some of you hubbers...
