thursday 13 {29}


TT_WRoseTT_WRoseTT_WRose


Denise has challenged all Thirteeners this week to come up with 13 things they like about themselves because "we, as women, spend so much time scrutinizing ourselves that we sometimes forget the good stuff." So I 've dedicated some thoughts to my own self this week trying to make a list. Not an easy task... Here it is, in no particular order...

01. I am friendly
02. I try my best to be a good person, partner and mom
03. I am a good listener . I really am
04. I am organized (well, somewhat organized)
05. I think logically
06. I can work under pressure. In fact, that's when I show my best features.
07. I am impatient, which makes me act quickly.
08. I used to have a photographic memory. Now I am happy at least I have a somewhat good memory! If not, there is my agenda to help me out.
09. I can communicate in Spanish, German, English and Catalan. I can survive in French and Italian. So excuse my English when you visit here, I get confused every so often... and many times I don't even notice !
10. I can adapt to different situations rather easily
11. I am absolutely loyal to my friends
12. I can play the guitar. No musical value whatsoever and only a little bit, just for me
13. I have a blog! I have a blog!
me


Get the Thursday Thirteen code here!
The purpose of the meme is to get to know everyone who participates a little bit better every Thursday. Visiting fellow Thirteeners is encouraged! If you participate, leave the link to your Thirteen in the comments, specially if you have more than one blog.

  1. Great list! I did the challenge too.

    I am jealous of #9, the only other language that I can speak is pig latin ;)

  2. A great list! I am jealous of number 9 too! That's cool! How many languages do you speak exactly, besides the obvious English and Spanish?

    Have a great Thursday!! :)

    Updated nr 9 since you asked - so now you know!

  11. I wish I could learn languages like you! Every time I travel, I try to learn a bit of the language. It's HARD!

  12. I didn't take up the challenge this week ...but I still did a TT

  13. I think this is a fabulous list! I loved #7: It made me chuckle out loud. Turning negatives into positives is what it is all about! Also, the languages were super impressive!

    Happy Thursday to you! Feel free to visit my list if you get the chance!

  14. Thanks for participating!!

    Truly wonderful list...and oh-so TRUE!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Ooooooh.... THAT'S where this is coming from! Man, I'm way off base this week, then. I've posted, but need to pay more attention in the future.

    Wow! You know a lot of languages! How cool! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  16. Great list! I can't believe you speaks all of those languages. I wish I was able to do that, but I can see how it would become confusing at times.

    Happy TT...mine's up!

    ReplyDelete
  17. That sounds like the Mar that comes across here. I'm impressed with your language skills. I can only speak pig latin and English!

    I never heard the term being blue meaning being drunk. And someone else told me about the "blue hour," the time between day and night. "Blue" is used in so many ways.

  18. Great list!!
    #9 - I wish I could speak so many languages and speak them well...
    xo

    ReplyDelete
  19. Wonderful list! Add me to the many envious of your language skills. :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. I think your English is fabulous! I'm so impressed with all the languages you know.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Enjoyed your list, you have many great traits. Is that picture of you? Great to put a face to the blog :) I did Denise's challenge this week too.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Since I barely communicate in English I'm so envious that you can in so many different languages. ;)

    Great List and Have a Happy!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love learning languages. My Spanish is pretty good, and French is alot like Spanish.
    I work good under pressure too. I get alot more done.

    I like your #13!:P
    Have a great Thursday, Mar!

  27. I feel better about myself, due to your great list!

    It's funny how the negative self-talk in our heads takes over and keeps us from appreciating the value we have.

    I've often marveled how we can put ourselves down, but if someone else were to say the same things to us, we would be completely offended! What's the difference? It's all terrible!

    Thanks for the inspiration!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I did the challenge too but had no problem with it (guess I should probably scratch off humility from the list!) No surprises on your list! You are very open and honest with your blog.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I wish I could speak other languages, French, Italian and Spanish are the ones I want to learn...setting my sights high! ;)

    Great list!! Happy Thursday!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Love your list. I am always so in awe of people who can speak in so many languages. What a gift! And lots of hard work too!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Great qualities!

    Wow, to speak all those languages would be great!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Great list. Ditto #13....ain't it great!
    I envy your photographic memory, some people have a photographic memory, others have no film. I fall into the latter category!
    Thanks for visiting my T13.

    ReplyDelete
  34. What a great list. It's so nice to see everyone being positive this week!

  35. Working under pressure is a good one. Not everyone can do that, and when situations arise, you'll know you can be counted on!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Love the list.

    My ex BIL's girlfriend is from Chile.
