(Pardon my lame attempt at a witty title for a somewhat boring post. Oh, I’ve really got your engine revving now, don’t I? You’re so eager to continue reading now that I’ve put down my own blog. Well, let me get out of the way!)
Grabbed this off of Mrs. Colleen’s blog.
Reminds me of the good ole days, filling out personal surveys on Myspace bulletin boards. Oh, Lord.
10 Questions About My Personality
1. When a cashier in the checkout line at the grocery store is being a grump for no reason, how do you typically react?
Most of the time, I react to that sort of situation the same way I would react to a friend being upset with me because I irritated or disappointed them. That is to say that I would be apologetic, as if his or her grumpiness was my fault.
I too was a grump or already annoyed by something else, in which case I’d be really snappy with him or her and complain about him/her as soon as I left.
Later I would probably reflect and dismiss or forgive the attitude since I couldn’t possibly know what was going on in his or her life. Unfortunately I rarely consider that right when that sort of thing is happening.
2. Are you the type that likes going out with your girlfriends or staying in?
Oh, I am most certainly a homebody. In my head, I like the idea of going out. I picture myself going out dancing and doing all these other cool things, especially since I live in Austin and there are so many cool things I could go out and do!
But between the fact that cool things often cost money that I don’t have, that I’m often lazy, and that I’m perfectly content with a book or movie or game night at home,…yeah. Not much going out for this lady.
3. Do you sob and get emotional watching romance movies?
It really varies, honestly. Most of the time I won’t cry if I’m watching it with someone else. It’s as though I can’t fully immerse myself in the movie if someone else is there. But if I’m alone, and it’s not too cheesy, yeah, I’ll probably get a bit emotional.
Examples of movies that have made me cry and probably would again:

4. What stresses you out the most?
Oh stars. Everything in the world ever.
Okay, maybe I’m being dramatic. But seriously. I’m a fairly anxious person, though most of the time, unless you know me well, I am able to hide it. And I don’t think there’s any one thing that stresses me out more than other things; it depends on what’s happening in my life at the time.
Right now, I could pretty much just point you back to this post.
5. What do you think people think of you?
…Isn’t the point that I don’t really know what other people think of me?
My semi-low self-esteem insists that most people probably think I’m annoying or bitchy or stupid. Or some combination of the three.
In reality, people would probably say that I’m sarcastic, and sometimes witty, but also sometimes a little too negative.
I would hope that they also might think that I’m compassionate.
6. When you overindulge do you hit the gym to burn it all off, or just accept the indulgence and follow your same routine?
I don’t think I’ve ever “hit the gym” for any reason. When I do indulge, it’s because I feel I deserve it or because I know that in the long run, it won’t really affect much. Of course, it helps that I have a pretty ridiculous metabolism and don’t really have to worry about such things, but I’ve been better about healthy choices lately anyway.
7. Are you easily annoyed?
Generally speaking, I’d say no. If you’ve ever worked with children, you can’t allow yourself to be. It’s more that there are a handful of specific behaviors that set me off.
8. What do you think is your biggest personality flaw?
Frick. Double frick. Ummm. Perhaps the aforementioned negativity? Or maybe that I’m always worried about the effect I have on other people. As if I have such a huge effect on everyone.
9. What is one thing you don’t think people see enough of when it comes to your personality?
I’m not sure. Maybe some people don’t see or understand how much I want to please others.
10. Can you feel relaxed in a busy crowd or messy room?
Eh. Most of the time, probably not. I mean, it doesn’t have to be dead quiet or 100% clean and neat. But I like a fair amount of organization, and I like to be able to hear myself think.
