31 Days: Twenty-Five

If I step it up and post every day for the rest of the meme, I can do this "post every day for a month" thing over the course of only two months. \o/ So here we go:

Something someone told you about yourself that you'll never forget (good or bad):

Mr. Z has told me that I'm not very reliable. It stung when he put it in those words, but it's also true. I say I'm going to do something, and then I never get around to doing it. Most of my job is self-imposed deadlines rather than hard-and-fast ones, and even if I don't do something for a class or for a student or a colleague, there really aren't any consequences besides feeling bad about it. It's something I struggle with all of the time, but knowing that someone so close to me can call me out for what it really is makes me want to do better.

On the bright side, a few friends on- and offline have told me that I've been an inspiration to them with regards to running because of my half-marathon adventure. I'm doing another one this fall, so maybe I can provide more inspiration!

I'm glad that you included a good and bad - and view the bad as motivation for improvement. That positive attitude is an inspiration to friends too!

It would be nice if other people could learn from my mistakes! :)
