blog link up - my hidden talents

I haven’t participated in The B Bar’s blog link up in a while, but this month’s question sounded fun. So, this month, I am answering the question:

What are your hidden talents?

remembering song lyrics with one listen – one of the things I learned while taking teaching classes is that I’m an auditory learner. You would think I would remember everything anyone would ever tell me – nope. My brain remembers song lyrics. It’s extremely distracting, but it makes singing along really fun. I often times find myself thinking in song lyrics and have been able to figure out songs better than Shazam. Sure, this talent isn’t super helpful with real world problems, but it is quite fun.

i have a great poker face – the thing is, I don’t use it for playing poker, but it’s really handy in real life. Most people don’t know when I’m freaking out (super handy during work) or when I’m replaying the latest episode of game of thrones in my head (because I’m still internally sobbing about Jon Snow). Granted, it also means I suffer from RBF most of the time, because I don’t always look outwardly happy. But, when I look sad, I’m probably not (unless I’m still thinking about Jon Snow).

seeing patterns wherever i go – maybe this is because I love math, but I can see patterns in things. I don’t mean I can tell what ikat is vs chevron, but it’s like I can see number sequencing or how things fit together. It’s so hard to explain, but it’s kind of a cool talent. It makes seeing the world fun. It’s like counting or visualizing things in a different way.
