Everyone has a talent, a trait in excellence within certain activities.

I share mine to start: I actually can sing, but I become tone deaf if my background music overpowers my vocals. My voice is kind of all over the map. That's due in part of my mimicry in voice acting.

I also have built skills which my natural ability flowed through. I draw, I cook, I make drinks (booze, bubbles or brew) I DJ and I am a host. Somehow, I find a certain kind of joy from entertaining others. It makes my doctor appointments with my Primary Care Physician less painful.

Stand up comedy is something I have a knack for but it's extremely geeky content. I once compared myself to a Sailor Moon villain when I expressed my tendency to go after older members of the opposite sex. This made my poor doctor laugh to the point of she needed a breather.

I guess that's what I know about myself.

I suppose mine would be cooking, baking, and candy making. I can cook/bake anything if I have a recipe, even made up a few of my own. I have also taught myself to make hard candy, gummies (sour and regular), chocolates (solid and filled), and sweettarts.

My talent is stealing oxygen from people that deserve it way more than me.

I have perfect timing. I will typically ask a question that calls for an elaborate answer from my table companions at the very moment they take a large bite of food, forcing them to mumble, cover their mouths, then bob their heads while they chew and stare at me mutinously.

Addicted to The Sims since 2000.

I stumble and fall rather well. I also excel at gaining weight

I don't really have any talents. I suppose I'm kind of a natural with academic writing, but meh. I used to be really good at drawing, but my limitations showed up really quickly in middle school and I stopped drawing not too long after.

♫ Keeping this here until EA gives us a proper playable woodwind/brass instrument ♫

I'm good at stumbling and falling too! I'm also pretty good at dropping things, knocking things over, and spilling things.

I can memorize things pretty well (mostly having to do with history/psychology) and I have a pretty good eye for design. I tried drawing for a while but after I stopped doing it after my abilities deteriorated altogether. o_o;

I am very good at killing mixers. Seriously, I have lost count on how many I've killed. One time I, somehow, managed to smoosh a beater if a stand mixer while using it to make cake icing. Another time, I literally blew up the motor of a hand held mixer.

One of my other talents involved modding my setup. Recently, I took everything apart and reinstalled the Wii U and PlayStation 2 with the switchboard for 8 machines. Eventually, I'm going to need a switchboard for HDMI input\output as Nintendo decided to give the Wii U HD ability for graphics. I also mod my games on my PC to fit with my story telling, but like I said, life is getting in the way of my gaming.

I'm really good at firing people. My last 3 jobs, I've been the manager tasked to handle every exit. Its quite fun, and I like when they cry best.

My (somewhat) unique talent is eating the last snack/pie slice/hors 'doeuvre/candy/whatever off a plate at parties.

I was classically trained to play piano from a very young age, and I can play saxophone, bass, and guitar, but when I hit 17, I just fell out of love with music and stopped practicing. I guess the talent is still there if I applied myself. I was also a fine arts student in college and I can draw and paint pretty okay, which I also don't do anymore. I can rebuild a car engine, I quilt, sew, crochet, and some people say I can write pretty decent stories. ^_^

I am pretty talented at destroying my life,no joke.
But in all honesty,I do decent job at drawing (I studied graphic design),singing,writing poetry (for now only in my mother tongue,but I aspire to compose someday in english too).
And If that counts,I do have sharp eye for clothing and many people told me that I posses impressive fashion sense ( Huge fan of 60s-80s style,especially men attire,because I hardly wear feminine clothes).

I have a pretty good imagination. I can come up with an entertaining story outloud pretty easily, but I can't write them down. Also depending on the complxity of object, I can ususally take it apart and put it back together again without any problems because who needs instructions.
