Blue. Fortunately I like the color since I can't change it.
What's something you'll NEVER do again?
If I can help it, I'll never go another event that I'm only invited to in order to bring someone the inviting party really wanted there. Over the last several years, I've been involved in several events--most of them weddings--where it was obvious I wasn't wanted. I was there merely to chauffer someone else who they did want. I don't think people understand how crappy that is or how worthless that makes a person feel.
Tell us a couple of ways you fit the stereotypes associated with your gender, and a couple of ways you don't.
Are you talking negative stereotype or positive? Let's start with how I don't fit the stereotype. As much as I love kids, I'm not obsessed with the "mom" thing. That's more of a societal dictate that all females over the age of 12 should be aiming for nothing but motherhood. I might know more about cars and computers than the average female. I play musical instruments that are definitely not feminine (and I don't play them daintily either).
How I fit the stereotype? I like pretty things and want to look pretty even thought I can't most of the time. I worry too much about other people's feelings and needs to the point that I neglect my own. Although I spent way too many years stifling and packing down my emotions, my concern is that I'll flip over to the complete opposite and become an emotional basket case.
May is Motorcycle Awareness Month. Have you ever owned a motorcycle? Ever ridden a motorcycle? If the opportunity presented itself would you hop on a motorcycle and go for a ride?
I've never driven or owned a motorcycle, but would like to learn to ride, and possibly purchase one someday. The couple of times I was on a motorcycle was when my older brother, Marvel, let me ride on the back of his. When I was a kid, I thought my brother was the coolest dude on the planet because of his bike. Both of my Pastors, who I consider pretty cool dudes, ride also.
If someone wanted to understand you, what should they read, watch, and listen to?
They would have to read books by Joyce Meyer and Beth Moore, watch Star Trek: The Next Generation, and listen to Weird Al Yankovic.
Insert your own random thought here.
I believe God is instigating another major shift in my life for the better. Please pray for me to know what to do and when to do it. Good things are on the horizon and I don't want to miss any opportunity for positive change.
