Quiet and very self-assured, you tend to keep your own council. Pragmatic and practical to a fault, you are not one to worry about the finer points of philosophical discourse. In fact, because you are very much an individualist, you often finds yourself at odds with the established truth or the wishes of the majority. You will often earn the wrath of an employer by taking upon yourself decisions which are rightly those of your manager. You are not one to take credit unless it is deserved. Similarly however, you will also not happily give credit where it is not due. In a romantic relationship you can be very frustrating. While you do care deeply and sincerely, and are willing to work at a relationship, your confidence in your own abilities can on occasion make it difficult to see the world from a partner’s point of view. Quiet and stoic at times, you can drive a more emotional individual completely up the wall. You can become overstressed and fatigued without knowing it. Taking time to rest between bouts of hard work can help to prevent a breakdown later on.
Um… Yes, ok, I recognise a lot of myself in this, BUT the questions were all things like “Which one is pretending” and then there’d be two pulsating shapes to pick from…
Huh. So I think you should do the test and let me know what your results are, and whether they are what you’d consider right…. You know, just for comparative measurement. I’m scientific like that.
Also, I happen to have an interview on Wednesday with a recruitment company. I’m a little bit excited. I’m also mildly worried, because all they’re showing me at this point are junior Administrative roles, and I’m really hoping for something a bit meatier than that!
I hope I can have a chat with them and see if they’ll be willing to offer me something more interesting. I’m not really willing to settle for a step sideways. I really want a step upwards. Or even just a tiny hop up the career ladder. One rung at a time baby!
Also. Today I had a counselling appointment, and we talked about my instinctive dislike of people who tell me to ‘Stop thinking’. And, AND she agreed with me. It IS a stupid thing to say to someone.
My argument is this: Yes, sometimes the crapola in my head gets in the way of me just relaxing, doing, and being. BUT. That’s not something I’m willing to change. Mostly because it’s something I think would be dangerous to change. That’s just what I do, and it’s just how I process things. And quite frankly? I think us thinkers have the intellectual and rational advantage over the instinctive action, and ‘just do it’ crowd.
Also? I’m thinking of buying sea monkeys. Obviously when I am rich and flush with money. (So five years from now.) Mostly because the website says that they have been to space with NASA. And they were created in a laboratory like some kind of Frankenstein’s monster thing! My fish, and Steve the Snails never went to space. And they just evolved, like regular life forms. Psh.
In other news, I lied to the man that I brought the air pump from on Trade Me, and then he agreed to relist it instead of making me pay for it. I’m trying really hard to feel bad about lying to him, BUT, he massively overpriced it, and then dicked me around on giving me his address, and then he turned out to probably be a serial killer.
(The key word in that sentence is PROBABLY.)
I’m not really feeling all that bad.
Anyway today I have some questions for you:
– What is your favorite: raspberry or lime?
I always go for raspberry. Unless it’s a milkshake, then I go for lime.
– Would it be better to continue being poor and hold out for the mythical awesome ‘step up’ job that may never arrive… Or should I just start applying for junior administrator jobs, in order to get a regular paycheck on the table, and a foot in the door at a big govt department-type job? Even though I’ve had six+ years experience doing administration in offices?
– Did you see Two Weeks Notice? With Hugh Grant and Sandra Bullock? It’s kind of old, and not very deep, but it’s one of my favorites.
– So is Pride and Prejudice. (That’s not really a question you have to answer.)
– And finally: What do you think of my hair today? Have you voted in my totally deep and meaningful haircut poll? Would you like to? I think you should… That’s really more than one question, and an opinion, but it’s still valid because I said so.
