When was the last time you looked at/used a map you could hold in your hand? (phones don't count!)
Back east, down south, out west, up north
Choose one of these directional expressions and tell us why you chose it.
OK, this is the three questions in one. Isn't that cheating, Mrs. Joyce?
Part 1: Since I'm finding my away around a new town, I'd say I'm around a 7 on the scale. Once I have a good base of directions, I can find things relative to the base.
Part 2: The last time I used an actual map was when I worked for a moving company. That was only because the computers were down. Honestly, I'm much better with a GPS and an online map site. For me, those maps are easier to understand. I wouldn't have made it across the country without them.
Part 3: "Out west." Well, it's where I am.
Did you do more talking or listening yesterday? Is that typical? Describe your yesterday in one word.
Listening. I endeavor for listening more to be typical of my behavior. Yesterday in one word? Exhausting.
Time, money, water-power-resources, opportunity...which one on the list are you most guilty of wasting? What might you do to change that?
When I was younger, I wasted a lot of money with debt and stupid decisions based on a poverty mindset. Now, I'd say I struggle with wasting time. At present my biggest time waster is my commute to work. Hopefully, a solution is soon coming.
Did your family take regular vacations when you were a kid? Tell us something you remember about a family roadtrip from your own childhood.
Like I said here, our family couldn't afford vacations, so I don't have a good answer for you.
If you could grow anything you wanted, what would you grow? Why?
If I could grow something that is impossible to grow, I would grow a money tree because I'm ready to be out of debt and I'm ready to be a better giver. If I could grow something that's possible to grow, I'd like to grow some of the fussy plants I've not had any success with. I have a green thumb, but if a plant is too complicated to maintain, I kill it. Things like African violets, poinsettias, orchids, and geraniums. I guess I just learn to paint them in order to enjoy them.
Insert your own random thought here.
Well, Saturday, I go to view an apartment to possibly rent. If it the right place for me (and I hope and pray it is), I'll be moving the first week of November. I'll keep y'all posted. I'm ready to move closer to my work. We had our first snow Monday and my long commute was not pleasant. Pretty, but not pleasant. Plus, I'm ready to be settled into my own place.
