I am doing my best to involve myself in the blogging community (It isn't healthy being alone in my head all by myself after all!). The place I started was Blogs of Note. 'Tangobaby' is my favorite at the moment. The author directed me to a quiz site called "HelloQuizzy". A quick disclaimer before I continue, the results of quizzes like this are about as useful to me as my horoscope so I don't know that I will be altering my life based on the results! (On horoscopes... Astrology not to be confused with Astronomy... a subtle differentiation which has got me into trouble in the past).
According to this particular quiz, I am most like Doris Day. Tangobaby is Marilyn Monroe, Who are you?
Maybe there is a gap between what I wish was me and what actually is. Interesting topic come to think of it. To illuistrate further: My friend Matt had a personality quiz once where he asked me about my favorite animals. (Again, don't rewrite your life based on this because it is again pretty close to astrology). It goes like this:
1. What is your favorite animal?
2. What is your second favorite animal?
3. What animal do you not like (or if you are like me and can't hate animals because they are just animals... what animal would you like least)?
For me the answers are as follows:
2. Dragon fly
What does this say about me? Well... you need to think in terms of character traits. Yes I am aware that animals are not people but when you think of a particular animal it has personality traits associated with it. For example: dogs - dependable, cats - aloof, mice - nervous. I am sure you understand what I am talking about. The first answer is what you would like to be. So for the jaguar, the traits I want for myself - strong, stable, independent and relaxed. The second answer represents what you are right now. For the dragon fly - flighty, unsettled, fun and slightly neurotic. Lastly the least favorite animal represents what you dislike in others. The toad represents for me a scavenger who thrives on others suffering and environmental destruction. This test works for me.
I will conclude with my horoscope for the week (as per a random newsletter at my coffee place):
Pisces: The achievements you accomplish add to your self-acceptance and self-esteem. There will be an active interest in parental responsibilities.
But this time I think I will pretend to be a virgo because theirs is much more specific.
Virgo: If you have a clear goal, you can make significant progress and work with great satisfaction now. An opportunity to do what you really want, is likely.
Damn I don't have a goal. Maybe I will give up now before it gets to crazy.
Have a good week/night guys!
Love to all!
