TAG: My Perfect Imperfections10:52 AM
A few days ago I saw a tag going around on Youtube called "My Perfect Imperfections". It was started by AndreasChoice, and the premise is to list 3 things about yourself that you consider imperfections and 3 things that you like about yourself.
I don't know why but I always think it's really fascinating to hear about what others think are imperfections about themselves, just because it really humanizes them. Nobody's perfect and it gives people a chance to say, "Hey, I'm not perfect and here's why, and I'm still kinda neat and here's why."
I'm the type of person who gets really uncomfortable when commenters try to push me on some kind of pedestal because I am SO not that girl that people looked at and cooed over my whole life. I was never popular. Not even close! I was always that plain, dorky girl who was silly and never got too much attention other than for art and being studious. YAY FOR ASIAN STEREOTYPE TIME! XD I didn't even wear makeup until late in college so when people give me those types of comments I really just look at them (literally, stare at the typed words) like they are crazy.
That's not to say that I don't take compliments graciously, I really try to which is not always easy. It's more that I take the words I hear with a grain of salt because I know that for all the good or bad comments that may come my way, I know I'm still that dorky girl inside and that's the person I'm happy being.
So here's my Perfect Imperfections video. I hope you guys watch this one and, if you would like, make a video or blog response (which you are free to link to in my comments or youtube). :)
