Snowflake Challenge: Day 8  

Fandom Snowflake Challenge banner

Day 8
In your own space, make a list of at least 3 things that you like about yourself. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

Ah, this was a very hard one, and I'm sure it's supposed to be. :D

1. I'm a very proud Hufflepuff. I embrace my House, even before it was ~cool~ LOL. Ages ago I thought I might be Gryffindor and my best friend went and said, 'are you kidding? You're Hufflepuff' and it was a !!! moment. I've been a happy Puff since then.

2. I have a very nice hair. :) I don't mean that my hair always looks nice or anything, or have good hair days often. In fact, it often looks like this. But once you touch it, my hair is very silky. Like Draco's! :D So yes, silky hair is one of the things I like about myself.

3. I'm kinda funny. I mean, I'm not "OMG LOL CAPI SO FUNNY!" funny, but if you're thinking about someone who's going to make you snort and go "heh" every once in a while, I'm that. A solid A-OK kind of funny. :)

4. I might seem very chatty, but I can be very quiet IRL. Like, we could be sitting next to each other, be super close friends and often talk our ears off but I don't need to fill every moment with words. We can doing our own thing, reading, or watching TV or just doing anything and it's a peaceful kind of silence, make eye contact, chat a bit and then keep on being silent and it won't be awkward. I appreciate and know the value of silence, so there's that. I think it's nice.

5. And, opposed (or related?) to #4, I am very positive and enthusiastic. I'm easily excitable and I'm not afraid to show it. I'm not embarrassed about being a bit silly and generally behave like a puppy when I'm happy/excited about something. I know this can be totally annoying, but since I often try to see things in a positive light I rather think it's a good thing.

So that's what I like about me in short: Hufflepuff, good hair, heh!funny, quiet, but excitable. That's it. I mean, that's not it. I like to think I'm a good friend, a good daughter, a good sister, hard-working, honest. But it's a bit odd thinking and saying that about yourself, you can only try to be and hope others see you that way. ^^

Darling, I bet you are all that and more! Too bad LJ doesn't allow words much above 5K, because I could have written an ode to your good qualities! :)
I'm very glad you recognise them, though. One lecturer once asked the class: If I asked who you loved, how long do you think you would need to say "myself"? - And it's true, so it's another merit to your name that you can recognise your good traits - it's not vanity, it's self-appreciation! :)

Awww, you! <333 Can I keep you? Like, can I actually keep you here with me? *snuggles*

It's very challenging to find your voice and say there's good things about me, it feels vain and self-glorify, but it's good to remind ourselves there's good in us, even little things, love and accept yourself is important.

I didn't think I could love you more than I did, but after reading this and your totally cute humble solid Hufflepuffness, I DOOOOOO

Ages ago I thought I might be Gryffindor and my best friend went and said, 'are you kidding? You're Hufflepuff' and it was a !!! moment

Silky Draco-like hair, awww! (GURL, you could do the HAIR MEME once, if you want! It's on my LJ and it's AMAZING! You have to post about your hair!!)

I love how enthusiastic you are! I really feel it and it's so amazing! I'm also so enthusiastic about fandom and it's a joy to share this emotion with someone so kind. *squishes*
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on January 9th, 2017 01:43 pm (UTC)
I feel so connected to that sheep image! LOL

I'm going to look for it and doo it! :D

I know you are and I love that about you. *huggles* Total kindred spirits! <3

you are the definition of positive and enthusiastic! and that is so amazing to see and to read about! also you are quite funny! and entertaining so no wories there!
also being quiet in rl is cool with me- sometimes the silence is more telling than any words could be!
*me is a tiny bet envious about your hair- but it suits you so i'm ok with it <3 *
and go you puff!

Silence is a great thing! I mean, I reckon is underrated, but a quiet, peaceful silence that you can share with someone you love is a very great thing, me thinks. :)

The hair! You know, my hair was a proper nightmare (sheep pic 24/7!) before I did this straightened hair treatment and now it's much easier to handle. :)

Thank you so much! I like to think silence is a very wonderful thing as well. Nothing like a comfortable silence and then a little laugh once in a while, eh? :)

Thank you for always taking the time to come and comment. I truly appreciate it, it's a wonderful thing you do. *hugs*

Silky hair is fantastic! And also being funny. Most people are rather ironic or sarcastic, and that gets tiresome quickly. Being someone who can make others smile and laugh is a rare gift and a wonderful thing to like about yourself. :-)

Thank you! <3 I like to think it's if anything not completely dull. :D

you're a brilliant Hufflepuff and a great mod and long-distance friend. My biggest hope is to one day meet you face to face. ♥
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on January 10th, 2017 12:29 pm (UTC)
Me too! I can't believe we missed our chance all those years ago for Terminus when I was in Chicago for a month. It'll happen one day! <3

♥ Curse the world being so big, 'cause dude, we are so freakin' similar it's not even like real! My only caveat is, I'm only cool with the silence thing with people I know. Stuck in a room with someone I don't know and the only thing more terrifying than awkward silence is awkward small talk. I am the worst with people basically. :D
welcome to villa cariño!: With you--whatever happens Harry/Roncapitu on January 10th, 2017 12:28 pm (UTC)
LOL! Same!

That's why I'm such an awkward chatter on-line. Like, I start a chat and then I go silent because I'm quietly doing my thing and then I start thinking, 'omg, am I suppose to say something all the time? Are they waiting for me to keep the conversation going non-stop? What's the proper etiquette?? Can we just sit here together in silence CHATTING?' I've lost practice! LOL
