August Alphabet Music Challenge – August 3rd

After careful consideration, my favorite singer with a first name that starts with a ‘C’ is Carrie Underwood! I’m not a huge country music fan (in fact, for the most part I hate it), but I really like a few of Carrie Underwood’s songs. Some of the songs include: Before He Cheats, Songs Like This, Undo It, and Cowboy Casanova. I think she has a beautiful voice!

Who Am I Tag?

I was just tagged by C. over at You’re Not Alone In This World for this really fun tag! Thank you so much, C. !

Myers Briggs Personality Quiz.

Your personality type is:

Advocate (INFJ-t)

This trait determines how we interact with our environment.
This trait shows where we direct our mental energy.
This trait determines how we make decisions and cope with emotions.
This trait reflects our approach to work, planning and decision-making.
This trait underpins all others, showing how confident we are in our abilities and decisions.
2% Assertive
98% Turbulent

INFJ Personality (“The Advocate”)

The INFJ personality type is very rare, making up less than one percent of the population, but they nonetheless leave their mark on the world. As Diplomats (NF), they have an inborn sense of idealism and morality, but what sets them apart is the accompanying Judging (J) trait – INFJs are not idle dreamers, but people capable of taking concrete steps to realize their goals and make a lasting positive impact.

INFJs tend to see helping others as their purpose in life, but while people with this personality type can be found engaging rescue efforts and doing charity work, their real passion is to get to the heart of the issue so that people need not be rescued at all.
What My Name Means:
Meaning & History
“hill”, or by extension “high, noble”. It was borne by the semi-legendary Irish king Brian Boru, who thwarted Viking attempts to conquer Ireland in the 11th century. He was slain in the Battle of Clontarf, though his forces were decisively victorious. The name was common in Ireland before his time, and even more so afterwards. It came into use in England in the Middle Ages, introduced by Breton settlers. It subsequently became rare, but was revived in the 20th century.

Your Scores:

  • Auditory: 35%
  • Visual: 45%
  • Tactile: 20%

Career I Should Be In Quiz:

Interest Level: 67% Language & Communication Careers

The Rules:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you and include a link to their blog.
  2. Display the award on your blog.

  6. List the rules in your post.
  7. Inform your nominees that they have been nominated for the Liebster Award and provide a link for their blogs.

Current Favorite Blog(s):

I actually currently answered this question. Please check here! The truth is that there are a lot of blogs that I love – almost too many to name them all. I feel bad just naming one or even just naming ten! So please know that the ones I listed are just a few of my favorites!

10 Random Facts

1.) I’ve never had lobster and have absolutely no desire to try it.

2.) So far, I personally only own one full series of a TV show. That show is Friends. However, as a family we own more full series than one. I’m trying to get all the Haven DVDs. So far, I have three of the six!

3.) Of all the characters in Friends, Rachel is my favorite of the women and Chandler is my favorite of the guys!

4.) Between my dad and I, we have a total of six Funko Pops! I want more!

5.) I used to collect Beanie Babies. I still have a lot of them. I find it too hard to part with them.

6.) So far, I’ve had two rabbits, two hamsters, and a lot of fish. I don’t think I’ll ever buy a fish again (unless of course I eventually have kids and they want one). I did not have the best of luck with fish. 😦

7.) I think the first “scary” movie I saw was Secret Window with Johnny Depp. Good movie!

8.) I used to hate Tom Hanks as an actor! I thought he seemed so conceited! He still kind of does give off that vibe but I don’t dislike him as much as I used to!

9.) I just saw an episode of the show Houdini and Doyle. I’m not sure if I’ll be watching more.

10.) After I finish reading The Da Vinci Code, I think I might re-read Wicked!

Questions From C. : 

  1. If you could go back in time before you where diagnosed with a mental illness, what would you tell youself? 
    • I’d tell myself to try to enjoy life and not obsess about everything! Obsessing sends you down a very dangerous path and leads to overwhelming amounts of anxiety!
  2. Where all have you traveled in your lifetime so far? 
    • I’m just going to name a few: Chicago, Florida, and New York City.
  3. Favorite college? 
    • I’m gonna skip this, but where I went! 🙂
  4. If I was to ask 10 year old you, “what do you wanna do when you’re grown up” what would 10 year old you have said? 
    • Wow, good question. I liked to write and read then, but I’m not sure I thought of it as a possible profession. Maybe I would have said a fashion designer? Or maybe I would have known then I wanted to be a writer.
  5. Your definition of a bad day? 
    • When my anxiety takes control and causes me to not do what I want. When it stops me from enjoying myself.
  6. What food do you hate that most people seem to love? 
    • I’m gonna go with scrambled eggs. Disgusting!
  7. See any new movies lately? If so, what was it? Would you recommend it? 
    • It’s not a new movie in general, but I hadn’t seen it until a few days ago. It’s called Firewall with Harrison Ford. It’s on Netflix and I’d recommend it. It is a little violent though. I also just saw The Da Vinci Code which was great!
  8. Favorite subject to study? (Can me middle, high, college, etc).
    • English!
  9. Did/Do you play sports? If so, what sport(s)?
    • Ha, ha, ha. NO!
  10. Favorite holiday tradition?
    • It used to be when my mom’s side of the family came over on Christmas and we all opened gifts and then my dad’s side would come later to eat dinner with us. We haven’t done that in a long time though. I’d have to say maybe going to my Grandpa’s on Thanksgiving and then going to my Uncle’s.
  11. Black n white or colored photos?
    • Colored photos!

Grains of Sand – April ’16

So while this month was kind of slow, I did accomplish some great things! Again I’d like to give a huge shout out to Sandy from Sandycademy for creating this wonderful way to keep track of our accomplishments!

-Accomplished something after not being able to the day before
• Getting back up after struggling is very important. Sometimes the fear of not being able to get back on track stops us from succeeding. However, I got up the day after struggling and succeeded at accomplishing a goal!
-Wrote more than 100 pages of the story I’m working on!
-Participated in the April Photo A Day Challenge! Thanks for the opportunity C. !
-Finished reading Fool Me Once by Harlan Coben.
-Created my own version of the May Photo A Day Challenge.

Sorry for the laziness guys, but I’m really not feeling well. Therefore, I’m just going to post some images from Google showing how I plan to spend my Summer!

Reading: I just watched the movie The Da Vinci Code for the first time and am really interested in reading the book!

Exercising/Facing My Fears: I plan on trying really hard to practice facing my fears on a more consistent basis as well as exercise more. This includes getting outside more.

Writing: I plan on writing more and hopefully, looking for a place to send my story I’ve been working on. Hopefully I’ll finish it and find it good enough to try to send in!

Watching Movies/TV Shows: I plan on watching some movies and T.V. !
