Who I am? Benevolent Creator

about you
You are a Creator
  • Your imagination, confidence, willingness to explore, and appreciation of beauty make you a CREATOR.
  • You are independent, and you enjoy your self-sufficiency.
  • Defying convention, you are very innovative, and you have a vivid imagination.
  • The look of things is important to you, and you have a keen eye for aesthetic beauty in multiple arenas.
  • You have a strong interest in what is new and exciting—and that includes forging ahead with new ideas, not simply discovering what is already out there.
  • Your eagerness to seek new and varied experiences leads you into many different situations.
  • You're not set on one way of doing things, and you are creative when it comes to finding novel solutions to complex problems.
  • You trust yourself to be innovative and resourceful.
  • Your confidence allows you to take your general awareness and channel it into creativity.
  • You're not afraid to let your emotions guide you, and you're generally considerate of others' feelings as well.

If you want to be different:
  • Appreciate the earthly, practical elements of things—there is beauty in form as well.
  • While you are good at thinking abstractly, focusing on details a bit more may help you discover things about the world.

how you relate to others
You are Benevolent
  • You are a great person to interact with—understanding, giving, and trusting—in a word, BENEVOLENT
  • You don't mind being in social situations, as you feel comfortable enough with people to be yourself.
  • Your caring nature goes beyond a basic concern: you take the time to understand the nuances of people's situations before passing any sort of judgment.
  • You're a good listener, and even better at offering advice.
  • You're concerned with others at both an individual and societal level—you sympathize with the plights of troubled groups, and you can care about people you've never met.
  • Considering many different perspectives is something at which you excel, and you appreciate that quality in others.
  • Other people's feelings are important to you, and you're good at mediating disputes.
  • Because of your understanding and patience, you tend to bring out the best in people.

If you want to be different:
  • You spend a lot of time taking care of others, but don't forget to take care of yourself!
  • Sometimes you can get overcommitted, and when you sacrifice spending time with those close to you, it can make them feel unimportant.

Guilt. The gift that keeps on giving...

There's nothing like a little guilt to make you feel worse! I love this little comic strip. :)

Karen is the inspiration

Being friends with a Queen really pays off sometimes. So Queen Karana is the inspiration for this post. And the fact that it's been a month since I posted anything. Even in my anti-sharing mode, I still like posting things from time to time. So now is the time I guess ;)

45 Things About Me

1. Are you taller than your mom? Yes. As are both my sisters. In fact, my sisters are also taller than me!

2. What color is your car? a light slivery blue (when it's clean)

3. What is the closest thing to you that is red? a red ruler

4. What is your ringtone? I have different ones for different people but the main one is "Good People" by Jack Johnson

5. Are you sick? Nope. I'm good.

6. Do you have a favorite pillow? Yes. Three of them actually and they are all squishy!

7. What is your favorite game? hmmm. Well if we're talking board games my newest favorite is Taboo. On my computer I like Cubis Gold. On my phone it's jewel quest. (I play the phone one the most)

8. Had a nap today? Nope. And I won't.

9. Gold or Silver? In most cases I would say silver. Or white gold. I don't like yellow gold.

10. Is there an animal that creeps you out? Insects and rodents and snakes. I don't really care for anything like that.

11. Who was the last person you rode an elevator with? Amanda and Brian

12. Did you go ice skating as a kid? Yes. Not often though...

22. What room are you in? My office

23. Are you worried about something you can't control? Yes. But I try very hard to remind myself that my worry doesn't do anything positive for the situation and that all I'm doing is putting negative energy toward something that doesn't need negative energy.

24. Do you like to exercise? I feel good when I do it but I won't say I *like* to do it. All things being equal I'd like to have a perfect figure and be super healthy and energetic without having to exercise.

25. Ever been in a car wreck? Yes.

And some new clothes and shoes. I also might go buy a Coach bag that I've been wanting but I'm not sure there would be enough. I'd also really want to put some of it into savings.

39. Name something you are grateful for! My friends.

40. Did you grow up in the city or country? I basically grew up in DC.

41. Would you ever consider going on a reality TV show if offered a large sum of money? Would I consider it? Of course. I don't know if I would *do* it. But I would absolutely consider it.

42. One of your dreams? To get married and have another baby (or two).

43. Hugs or kisses? Hugs. Although I'm a big fan of kissing, too. ;)

44. You have 10 dollars to spend in the dollar store. What do you get? Ummm , I haven't been in one in so long I don't know. probably coloring books and crayons. For me. Not for a kid. :D
