fishing for compliments...

Ten things I never get compliments on. In no particular order:

1) My current fragrance. Maybe it doesn't smell nice on me. I'm nose-blind to it. I am wearing Philosophy Live Joyously described as: a fragrance that's perfect for a day spent in the outdoors or a night out on the town. Created in 2014, this scent for women opens up with sweet notes of tangerine to give you that burst of energy you need to start your day. Pink peony provides a fresh, floral heart for an ultra-feminine feel, while patchouli rounds out the base for an earthy note that lingers on your skin and in the air.

2) My cooking. Granted I don't cook very often but when I do, I get no kudos.

3) Etiquette or manners.

4) Driving. I prefer to do the driving. Actually, it might be a compliment that my dad said he didn't mind riding with me because I drove fast enough that he didn't get bored.

5) Trying new things. No one ever acknowledges when I step out of my comfort zone.

6) The feedback I give my students. They probably don't even read the comments and suggestions I make on their assignments.

7) Checking in with my family daily. I message my sisters every day just to touch base. I wonder if they would notice if I skipped a day?

8) My sense of humor. No one else seems to find me funny. Especially not my students.

9) My hair. This is pure vanity. I used to get a lot of compliments on my red hair--because it's fluffy. The red is fading and the compliments have, too.

10) Book recommendations. In reality, I think people don't bother reading what I recommend.

  1. I've used Philosophy amazing grace for years but after reading the description of Live Joyously I might buy some of it soon. I love tangerine and patchouli, not sure about peony.

    I do most all of the driving when going somewhere with someone. I love to drive and my car gets amazing gas mileage.

    How neat that you message your sisters every day!
