Learn Something New Every Day - Recurrences Day 5

Go on failing. Go on. Only next time, try to fail better.
Samuel Beck

The theme for today's Learn Something New actually was aimed at "time".. i am useless with time keeping as well.. even if i plan, make lists, write it in calendars, set my idevices to remind me.. you can guarantee, i forget. Much to my husband's dismay, I still cannot get our anniversary right. In saying all that, I found a much more important recurrent theme to my life: Failure
If I can fail at something, I can guarantee you that I will. I have pondered this all day (yesterday) but I was too exhausted to blog about it, though i managed just about to take a photo to use for this post. 

I did manage to get to the Moxley Crop... but once there, it all turned into a huge failure.. it wasn't anyone's fault but my own. I once again realised that i just don't fit in, that social situations scare the living day lights out of me and that i lack social skills on all fronts. A couple of ladies tried to make conversation but soon left me alone, I ended up shuffling some paper around and then made a hasty retreat before I was noticed. 

This is the makaton sign for bad/wrong, the right one for fail escapes me and the boys don't remember either.
But bad/wrong falls into the category of fail.. so ill stick with that

What I learned:
  • I'm not ready for social situations
  • No matter how much I want to trust people, I always end up being the idiot.
  • I think I did my best, then it turns out it wasn't.
  • Sometimes it is ok to give up.
