"What is your hidden talent?" quiz revisited 7 years later instead of 5 @ 08:27 pm

Soundtrack: Super Smash Bros. 3DS/Wii U soundtrack - All-Star Rest Area

Explanation to those who are new here: I decided a couple of years ago that I'd start revisiting every quiz/survey I've posted on LJ five years later to see how things have changed. But then I procrastinated so long that I'm having to do some of them seven years later instead.

Old result:

I'd call it a hidden talent, since you hate doing it and agonize over it, but you are actually good at it.

Even if that's the case, it certainly didn't make sense for me to get that result back in 10th grade - back then, my essays and papers and stuff usually made no sense at all unless you helped me write them. :(

And I'm still not good at creative writing - I'm definitely not "the next Pulitzer prize winner" as that quiz says.

I suppose most of them were once I was done writing them, but back then I usually needed more help writing them. When I was in college, usually all I needed help with was motivation to work on them, but back when I was in high school, you definitely had to say way more than "sounds good, keep going" to help me with essays.

I think it was the same in high school. You could do it but you didn't have any confidence so you needed a push because you were afraid of writing. You wrote that Macbeth paper with minimal help (I just looked it over after) and it was great.

Was that before or after the Age of Reason paper? Because looking at my old entries, I had to do that Age of Reason paper around the same time that I first took that quiz.

EDIT: No wait, the Age of Reason paper was definitely before the Macbeth one. Because I don't think I had any LJ userpics back when I was complaining about having to do the Age of Reason paper, but by the time I had to do that Macbeth paper, I already had a whole text file with ideas for userpics. (I like how I can pinpoint when random things happened in my life just based on things like how many LJ userpics I had at the time ;) )

:) You've been a good writer for a long time, just not a confident one.
