Maybe I did too much. During my school years I did Mathcounts, Mock Trial, Geography Olympiad, student council, seminary council, Stagelight, Study Abroad, etc. etc. I spent eight years playing the flute in band and have hardly touched it since 2005. My piano skills have decreased since high school, my vocal and writing skills since college. I took a guitar class one summer semester at BYU and promptly forgot everything I learned. (I'm sure I got an A.)
Lest you all think I'm anti-sports, I DID try out for volleyball freshman year of high school, I just didn't make it (and truthfully, I was relieved).
Let's see ... I can crochet, decently well. I can sew but I don't really have the patience for it. My cooking and baking, dancing, hair and makeup skills are probably below average, my photog skills barely above. I forgot most of the German I learned in four years of study. Lately I've taken more of an interest in interior design, but don't claim any level of proficiency. There's definitely a pattern here - Jack of all trades, Master of none. That's me, all right.
I'm not fishing for compliments here, just making an observation. Is it better to excel at one or two things, or be decently good at several? What do you think?
Anyway, I'm one of the best spellers you've ever met. I almost won a district spelling bee in 8th grade. (Got out on a word I'd never seen/heard before.) Jordan School District. The biggest district in the state by far.
So ... there's that.
