I would venture to say that everyone in the world is really good at something. Now, whether or not that something is marketable or impressive to many people, well, that’s up for debate.
That said, sometimes our random talents can be both impressive and useless when it comes to making money and stuff, and I would argue these 15 people’s definitely falls under both umbrellas.
15. Just keep swimming.
Survived meningococcal meningitis at 18. They told my poor mother it was up to me whether I made it through the night.
Got through a mental breakdown at 30.
Proud to be a fighter.
14. There’s a feather in your cap!
I once killed two ogres with one cantrip. Minor Illusion is really good if you use it right.
13. Everyone is better off.
Working evenings and weekends, I turned the dumping area behind my school into a outdoor classroom, nature area and thriving pond.
12. That’s gotta feel nice.
I’ve lost a good bit of weight recently and now my d*ck is visibly bigger.
I keep catching sight of it in the mirror as I pass and then realising that it’s mine.
11. So far, anyway.
I have no refractory period.
10. I’m sure this would impress some people.
Wrote and ran a D&D campaign with a group of friends for about 3 years. We met every week, only missing a few sessions if people were too busy or sick or something. It was some of the most fun we ever had
We started at level 3, and ended at level 20 with a TPK. It was glorious. The best part was that the end of the campaign involved the party going back in time to stop an evil pantheon of gods from destroying another pantheon and causing the world to plunge into ruin.
So their deaths ultimately ensured that the timeline was maintained, thus preventing any paradoxes.
9. The reward is in your heart.
It could sound stupid, but I saved a lot of stray animals. Not only saved, but also found them safe homes and loving families as well. Doing it on my own, not as part of organisation or shelter.
It takes a lot of nerves, time, money…and a lot of tears, because some of them I find a little too late..
But at the end, knowing that some innocent souls got a better life thanks to me, is the best reward possible, although it’s not something to be put in a resume.
8. So you have to eat that second slice of pie, for your instrument!
I can play drums on my belly.
7. Confidence is always applicable.
I am proud of myself.. but no idea how to put that on my resume though.
6. Depends on where you’re interviewing, I guess.
I beat the Sephiroth secret boss on Proud Mode in Kingdom Hearts Final Mix.
5. You can do it, too.
I was a meth addict for ten years and stopped cold-turkey because I hated the person I had become. One month later my dad was killed and eventhough my brain screamed for me to stop the heartache with dope, I didn’t and I have been clean for almost 11 years.
I am now almost done with graduate school and I would never put this on my CV or resume, but everyday I am proud of myself and what I have accomplished.
Update: I also wanted to say to anyone out there struggling with addiction; I know life seems overwhelming and horrible and it doesn’t seem like you can escape. You can it will be difficult, but I promise you that a difficult life clean is much better. Keep trying and keep your head up. You can do it I believe in you.
4. That shows serious commitment.
200 million runecrafting experience on old-school runescape.
Yeah, I’m a bad boy.
3. But she’s not a chef.
That i successfully made a souffle at 13.
2. You’re multilingual!
Probably something common with a lot of people, but i learned how to speak / read / spell english only by playing video games since i was a kid.
Never had any classes or anything.
Even if it’s a kind of “Informal English” , i still think it’s a pretty good and self rewarding accomplishment…
1. Way to keep a cool head.
Saved a drunk woman from choking on her own vomit.
You’re welcome, Francesca.
I’m loving these, and feeling a little sad I’m not more secretly impressive.
