"You are a wonderful friend and colleague. You are generally calm and entertaining, and always dedicated and reliable. Just about everybody likes you. You have a traditional streak. Home, family, job and community are all central to you. You like being firmly embedded in your social groups and you feel deeply responsible for just about everyone around you. You can be fiercely protective of those you love. You are skilled at managing people. You are sympathetic and cooperative; you are also hard working and display a good deal of common sense. And you can be very patient. So you can complete detailed, painstaking jobs more easily than most people. You enjoy building social relationships. And you are skilled at achieving solutions to sticky problems so that all involved feel fulfilled. You tend to be cautious but not fearful. You have a genuine sense of community. So you seek projects that enable you to contribute to a more stable world."

Nothing like a personality test to make your day.

I'm a snob

Today (well yesterday) I heard 3 people talk about "camping." I put camping in " " because each of them talked about it in the sense that they do so in campers or trailers. I can't help but think, after years of vacationing with my family staying in nothing but our two room tent and years staying in platform tents and brushshelters with my girl scout troop or as camp staff, that trailer "camping" can't possibly be real camping at all.

Tents. Fires. Non-running water. No electricity. That's camping.

Ground pads. Sleeping bags. Camp stoves. Camping.

There are art snobs, theatre snobs, music snobs. I think I'm a camp snob. How oxymoronic.

Winter Doldrums

The past few days have been bittersweet. On the sweet side my friends Cassie and Heather came over for dinner on Tuesday and we spent 5 hours hanging out, I had my first PT appointment for my knee, OU closed for a snow day on my busiest day of the week and I have been in touch with more friends than usual thanks to Facebook. On the bitter side there have been 5 missed or cancelled lunch/hangout dates, a ridiculous amount of ice and a settling in of what I like to call the Winter Doldrums into my system.

On a completely unrelated note it's hard for me to watch ER and see John Stamos on it. For me he will always, always be "Uncle Jessie."

I'm still not enitrely sure what this weekend has in store, but I'm hopeful that I will be able to go to Columbus for the Superbowl and hang out with some awesome camp friends, especially my dearest Taboo who I have not seen in close to 5 months now.

Watch out Doldrums.... you can't stay for long. There's fun to be had!

"Your blog is whatever you want it to be. There are millions of them, in all shapes and sizes, and there are no real rules."

This, found on the first page of the tour in combination with a slight nudge by a friend have convinced me that I should once again venture into cyberspace with my own personal blog. I was leary at first, especially in thinking about all the people I know who are actually good at writing who might happen across this, but I'm sure they'll bear with me. Plus I'd like a place to chronicle all of the exciting events coming up (such as graduation!). So we'll see where it goes. Perhaps some places exciting, and perhaps some not. Either way, feel free to join me on the ride :)
