Just For Fun

I took this quiz thing on (Crown Financial Ministries) Not sure what this has to do with getting me out of debt but it was pretty cool. :)

General Description
As an Analyzer, you tend to seek perfect outcomes in all of your plans and projects. In many situations, you “take things apart” in your mind and think about ways to do them better. You excel at this kind of mental examination, but you may tend to see family and friends as “projects,” rather than as people.

Typical Areas of Strength
Analyzers, like you, tend to be analytical, logical, direct, confident, and they like new challenges. They excel at seeing the larger vision, creating efficient methods and procedures, and listening carefully for the facts.

Typical Areas of Struggle
Due to your tendency to focus on tasks, you sometimes show a lack of sensitivity to the feelings of family members and friends. When you are sharply focused on a task, you may come across as being overly critical, judgmental, blunt, or impatient with others.

Your Preferred Activities
To maximize your talents, you look for situations in which you can offer logical solutions to complex challenges, and you evaluate and make the necessary changes to assure the desired outcome.

Your Communication Style
You tend to provide insights and direction by teaching, managing, clarifying, and advising.

Hot And Sticky

I just wanted to tell you guys how hot I am. Yes, I know you are thinking..."well duh!" but I'm talking about temperature people! :p Seriously, I think my house was built pre-caveman so the insulation is no good. As a matter of fact it is probably asbestos so that would explain a why I can sleep 20 hours a day. Pre-coma? You be the judge. I also have one of the first ever, experimental stage, cooling systems. It doesn't really work but we let it run anyway because we enjoy massive electric bills. It is only 10 a.m. and 90 plus degrees outside and it feels better out there than in here. :/ It's a good thing I am cold natured, right? Besides, there are worse things. I could be a democrat.

Other things...

I am finally painting my walls a color that isn't in the white family. Kayla bought paint for me for my Christmas present! It takes a long time to paint walls an actual color because you have to do a good job or it will look messy which means I have to work harder to make it look good. Working hard is not my favorite...working harder is plain ridiculous. The color is brown but not chocolate brown or beige..more like a milkshake brown. Walls that make you think of ice cream cannot be a good thing. But overall I am pleased with how it is looking. However, this morning I was watching one of my favorite shows, "Design Star", and the in the preview for the next episode one of my favorite designers said, "I will gladly go home before I paint a wall brown." How am I suppose to take that? I guess until he comes over here...buys the paint...and paints the walls himself...they will just have to be brown. Besides, most of the HGTV shows tell you to go neutral! Most HGTV shows have way more to work with than I do. So W/E.

That is all for now. I am melting a little bit so I should probably go find a fan.
