Color Career Counselor

Thanks Julie for blogging about the Color Career Counselor! Too cool! I took the quick quiz, and I think my results are definitely accurate:

Best Occupational Category
You're a CREATOR

Nonconforming, Impulsive, Expressive, Romantic, Intuitive, Sensitive, and Emotional
These original types place a high value on aesthetic qualities and have a great need for self-expression. They enjoy working independently, being creative, using their imagination, and constantly learning something new. Fields of interest are art, drama, music, and writing or places where they can express, assemble, or implement creative ideas.

Suggested careers are Advertising Executive, Architect, Web Designer, Creative Director, Public Relations, Fine or Commercial Artist, Interior Decorator, Lawyer, Librarian, Musician, Reporter, Art Teacher, Broadcaster, Technical Writer, English Teacher, Architect, Photographer, Medical Illustrator, Corporate Trainer, Author, Editor, Landscape Architect, Exhibit Builder, and Package Designer.

Consider workplaces where you can create and improve beauty and aesthetic qualities. Unstructured, flexible organizations that allow self-expression work best with your free-spirited nature.
Suggested Creator workplaces are advertising, public relations, and interior decorating firms; artistic studios, theaters and concert halls; institutions that teach crafts, universities, music, and dance schools. Other workplaces to consider are art institutes, museums, libraries, and galleries.

2nd Best Occupational Category

Witty, Competitive, Sociable, Talkative, Ambitious, Argumentative, and Aggressive
These enterprising types sell, persuade, and lead others. Positions of leadership, power, and status are usually their ultimate goal. Persuasive people like to take financial and interpersonal risks and to participate in competitive activities. They enjoy working with others inside organizations to accomplish goals and achieve economic success.

Not that I'm interested in changing my career at this point but I do think I may have missed my calling and should have been a lawyer as many people like to tell me but I'm so done with school!! :)

Take the quiz (it's like 30 seconds) and share your results! I think it's pretty accurate!

Don't Make Me Sing!

I pretty sure Kristen Wiig's character was inspired by me (though I was not given due credit)!

According to many friends (especially at karaoke parties), I've been told this is how I come across....okay, it's true...it's how I am! :)

Don't make me sing, dance or give me the spotlight in any way. ;)

I Hear Ya Loud and Clear!

I just got the following message in my gmail inbox from my adorable husband:

Sat night = DATE night

No distractions
No parties
Limited kitties - this is what we call our dogs - strange, I know
Go in or stay out; doesn’t matter
You, me, and Dupree (jk) - this is an inside joke :)

Just give me a budget and I’ll do the rest

LONG overdue

This just makes me laugh out loud!! I usually send him emails throughout the day regarding the plans I make so he has no excuse to say "What?!?! You didn't tell me that ____________ was happening tonight?!?!!". No, honey, but I emailed you about it three times. This is my CYA move to avoid fights. I do admit things have been kinda crazy lately. Both of us are working long hours, our Saturday mornings used to be our favorite time of the week and they are now booked through May due to church commitments and I've been filling our (already little) downtime with plans and tasks. I'm slightly task-oriented. :) :) Oh, and Michael's trying to study for the GMAT which he is taking in one month (that we cannot afford to reschedule AGAIN).

But this is to say: I get it, honey. I understand. I'm all yours Saturday...and forever. I wish I could say we had a budget for a date, but all I can offer you is a Darden's or Carrabba's or AMC gift card. :) But hey, at least we've got that!!

P.S. To all of my loyal blog followers (laugh), blogging more often was obviously not one of my New Year's Resolutions. :) But with my blogiversary coming up this March, I may try to get my blogging back on track. One thing at a time....I've finally figured out Twitter!! :) So follow me!
