Taken from ann_septimus, also in dedication to.

Things I like about myself

1. At the risk of sounding trite, I am currently in awe of my body's ability to get stronger. I just finished the first two workouts of p90x (the hardest two thus far imho) for the second week in a row (the third time I've done them but I injured myself the first time). The first time I did them I was sore for days, and could barely move. The second time I was still really sore. Today, some mild soreness, but hardly even noticeable, and people have already started commenting on the results. I don't know if I couldn't do this when I was younger or just didn't have the right mindset, but it's pretty awesome.

2. I'm really good a learning languages and quickly being able to read and communicate in those languages. At least I'm better at it than the vast majority of people.

3. I can grow relatively attractive facial hair pretty easily. The older that I get, the more I appreciate how rare this is.

4. I like that I've become a lot better at standing up for things that I believe are really important instead of worrying about how other people will think negatively about me for them (this esp re: anti-Hispanic laws in Arizona lately).

5. I can cook great, awesome food given the most absurd food restrictions you could think of. I regularly eat gluten-free vegan food now, but I've had enough practice that I can make food for almost anyone. Tasty, awesome food.

I love all these things about you. And so much more. I"m glad you did this -- it made me happy.

But your linguist abilities are seriously preternatural, and I am in awe of them.

Also: you can come cook for me aaaaaaaany time. Like, I would hire you just to do that.
