-If you total the amount of times I've watched an individual Harry Potter film, you're in triple figures.

-I got a silver medal at the TKD UK Open (thus concludes my fitness achievements)

-I wrote a school film script and got in the newspaper

-I can be kicked in the shin repeatedly and be okay (is that really... Moving on)

-I can program in seven languages

to wither and fall off
Old and dusty, creaky and rough
This clockwork will not rest

I can touch my palms to the floor WITH my knees straight. Been able to do that my whole life. #doublejointed. And no pain.

- I can play clarinet, bass clarinet, and alto clarinet! Plus, my alto clarinet playing is so impressive that my clarinet teacher thought that I was playing a bass clarinet really terribly when she heard me play the alto clarinet. (Trust me on this... alto clarinet is hard to play. Every note is a throat tone. She was super impressed.)

- I can carry 20 lbs of weight for several miles without breaking a sweat.

- I can jog with 40 lbs of weight on me for half a mile in the rain with a head wind, no problem.

- I can sub bugs on a blood plate like a boss.

- One word: electrophoresis.

- I can sleep with a screaming baby five feet away from me.

@Alpha but only when it's already raining, right?

I've been told I make fantastic chocolate chip cookies. I can make almost anyone feel like the most important person in the world (does this count as a special talent? It's quite easy so maybe not), and um I can come up with wacky ideas (*cough* YWStival, anyone?) and SOMEHOW they work

One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.

I'm not quiet. I'm just plotting.

Ummm, I don't think I'm used to bragging. xD

-I can play piano fairly well. :P
- I can sleep through just about anything on earth (truuust me on this.)
- I once took a bet, and put I don't know how many grapes in my mouth. Po would have been proud of me.
- This is totally a talent... I can sufficiently ruin three loaves of bread in a row.
-(somebody has already said this... ) Without bending my knees, I can put my hands on the ground and bend my arms. :mrgreen:
-Freak everyone out with my fingernails, as they are rather long and sharp at the moment.

Kay, I'm out of things to brag about. *signs off*

I seem to only really end up close friends with people who suffered horrible traumas for some reason.

Well, I can pick out songs by ear on the keyboard (not really fond of pianos)

I write poetry

I can climb trees (only a few, about 28%)

I can glare at something until you'd think it would have been nothing but a smear of greasy soot *ahem*

I have a terrible habit of noticing things (mostly bad)

And, that's about it. Or so.
Spoiler! :
Yes, I know I need a signature.
