Default Qotd: What's something you tried really hard to like but just couldn't? (11/15)

What's something you tried really hard to like but just couldn't? And why?
It could be a hype, a food, a thing,... anything.

Can't wait to read your answers.

Every series that I've tried watching on Netflix. Maybe I'm just not a T.V./movie person any more.

Learning Mandarin/Chinese. I can speak a bit, but I can't seem to advance. Let alone reading and writing... It really becomes a daily struggle for me, especially since I am living here.

Digital calendars. I've tried a bunch of different apps and websites, and I love the idea of being able to access my calendar anytime/anywhere and set alarms. But no matter what I've tried, it just doesn't work for me. It's faster and easier to write things in a paper calendar; I can easily see an entire week at one time in paper without longer items or busier days being partially hidden; I can look ahead or back easily, etc.

I have a desk calendar at work, for meetings and school happenings etc. I also have an agenda which I have all that plus specific times/periods where I am meeting students. I do put personal stuff in both.

I also have a calendar at home on the fridge, no work stuff unless it is after hours, like parent/teacher interviews, open house.

My phone calendar is basically used when I make an appointment so I don't forget to transfer it to the paper ones

Scotch. My hubby loves to sip those fancy Scotches. I think they're nasty.

Mine is eating meat. I wish I liked it, it would make life a lot easier, but I cannot handle it.

See, I'm a total wine and beer person (I always say I'm a 'wedding drinker') ... but I don't ever drink any sort of hard alcohol.

Coffee. Tried it with cream and sugar. Black. Flavored. They all have that gross aftertaste. I gave up and will stick to my beloved black tea.

And for me it is definitely coffee... I've tried it every which way and I just cannot stand the taste, or smell for that matter.

Veggies. I just don't like them. I force myself to eat them every. single. day.

Also some recent books: The Zookeeper's Wife and Amy Schumer's book.

Spin class! Everyone told me once I got through the initial pain, I'd love it, but I never did. I tried really hard, but eventually I just gave up on it.

Cottage cheese....I've tried at least 3 times and I just can't stomach it. I wish I could because it's suppose to be good for you and you can put fruit in it too.

I'll jump on the coffee bandwagon. HATE it! I've tried so hard, and so many ways, to make it the deliciousness that so many people rave about but alas, I can't stand it. But I do love the smell of it!

I'm here to help if you have questions! I do think the key to learning any language is to have fun... find a show you like and watch it in that language. That's how I picked up Korean so quickly.

For me it's contacts (tried for 2 years in college but I hated the feeling of having something in my eyes!) and make-up. I will put a little something on if I have to, but I almost never put any make up on.

I don't wear make-up either. I get a rash from almost every product.

alternative milks and yogurt - I'm lactose intolerant and I'd rather go without a hot drink when I'm out than have soy milk in a hot choc or something. If I really really want a drink sometimes I'll have a trim hot chocolate knowing full well what the consequences might be for me but that only ever happens maybe 1-2 times a year when I will cave for a dairy laden hot drink
