My mom nicknamed me "happiness". I spread happiness. If I see someone who needs cheering up or encouraging words I go help them. My mother and I would go shopping. She'd be amazed I could turn a grumpy person into a happy person just by spending time with them. Just by caring and listening to them.

I can sing like Josh Turner and Chris Young of country music. I wanna be a singer someday!

I'm hyper extended in my arms so I can bend them both ways one way the normal way and the abnormal way also I can cross one eye

I can look at leftovers and know exactly what size container I need that is exactly right for the amount in the pots and pans. 99% of the time I can fill the containers perfectly to the brim without spilling anything.

Don't know how or why this is my hidden talent, but it is.

One thing I suck at is doing things one handed (cursed contraption called an IV is awful, people seriously need to realize how great it is to be at least semi ambidextrous!!)...but on that note I can find a vein in myself faster than my nurse could last night and I was pretty doped up then too...
*shrugs*
...Im trying to find something positive about my current hospital stay because it smells strongly of sickness covered up with various chemicals and my anxiety is getting worse and worse...
I guess I'm also good at sleeping literally anywhere...couch, bed, metal folding chair, the floor, the ground outside, standing up too so long as I'm in a corner where i can lean at just the right angle, upside down, any position, bus seat(s) even when the bus is moving...

Despite some hard years of self-inflicted abuse, I have quite a good memory and can remember even the slightest of details from most points in my life.

Dont fool yourself, that is an incredibly practical and valuable talent you have there!

I can gain the trust of feral cats and dogs at work in order to handle the more threatening animals there, as well as get the animals used to other people by scent sharing with people and exposing the animals to the shared scents.

I'm one of those people that most just sort of automatically trust. It's actually uncomfortable sometimes. Sometimes it makes me worry about people, like, why would you trust me with this info/task/money when we barely know each other? Keep yourself safe, please... And sometimes I'm told things that I really don't want to know. I'm not a squeamish person, mind you. Some of it has just been that bad. (No, RPR folks who have shared things with me. None of you even rank against some of what I've heard in terms of disturbing.)

I also have a knack for music in various useless ways. I can match rhythm easily, but can't play any instrument. I can go to a piano and convince someone I know how to play so long as they don't. I can hit the full scale of O Holy Night, but find it incredibly difficult to make so much as a musical peep if I know someone is listening. I worked out sort of the basic melody of Pirates of the Carribean on the penny whistle before I lost it, but I can't name a note. I can't mimic an individual note, but I can pick up melodies maybe a little easier than average. And so long as no one's listening, I can easily sing out impromptu melodies and even lyrics, inventing as I go.

Snuggling adorable people like sexysultrybabe and Skrifa..

Spotting critters when I'm driving. They could be in the road, or in a field. I'll see them, and I'll make sure to drive slowly and safely for them. <3

Changing my answer to something different.

I can read patterns like a book. Being hard of hearing, I feel "sound" more than I hear them. That has lead me to also possibly being able to ready auras. I can tell real quick when someone is faking it, well before I approach them.

Everything around us has a pattern, no matter what it is. Sound is just the most obvious as it is more noticeable. I may not notice something everyone notices, but I notice things that most would not even understand if I tried to explain it. That is if I could ever put it to words. This with reading body language and voice tones, has lead to life sometimes being a pain.

Also, I may or may not be an emotional empath. Which, again, may just be credited to the pattern readings.

On some days when I sleep I dream of something happening then a couple days later it happens Idk how this happens but it scares me

When I was young that would happen as well.

Quite odd..... maybe something we are not supposed to understand?

Sleep in class without the teacher noticing.

Spotting patterns.

Shamelessly debating/arguing till the very end even though my stand is clearly wrong.

Attracting stray cats.
