Here’s my first shot at MM, the three questions are below…
What is one thing you wish you could change about yourself?
The way I manage my time. I love to have everything working perfectly together, with no chance for error and no issues or other spaces for interruptions. Generally, I end up often distracted with a favorite part of my routine and forget there are other things that need to be done, or other matters that require my attention. I would love to manage my time and my SENSE of time, so it is more than just a word to me.
Do you believe everything happens for a reason?
Yes, oh yes! Most definitely! Would you like to hear-er-read, an example? Yes, no, maybe? Great. I’ll tell you anyway. ^_^
A great example is the green earring I wore to the FW conf. last year, I wore it to a test last year, mid-semester when things generally get a little “krazy” and it fell out somewhere. Because of the sentimental value, I searched for this particular earring more than I usually would have, even enlisting the help of my fellow students and friends. Nothing happened. Nothing turned up. I prayed. I whined. I moped. Everyone told me to give it up for good, saying that someone else had probably found it and walked off with it. I don’t know about you, but I don’t see the point of just waltzing off with one earring…especially one that belongs or belonged to someone else. It’s kinda like borrowing toothbrushes…at least as far as I’m concerned. Anyway, at the end of the semester, the last final I had in the building I thought I’d lost the earring in…on the corner near the wall on the edge of the markerboard, there was the earring. It was lying there as if it had been waiting for me all day. I passed that spot a dozen times, since I’d lost it and never seen it there. I notice the details like that. The earring turned up exactly when I needed a boost, exactly when I needed a spark of randomness. My day flew by in a sort of happy blur and things worked out great. Answered prayer. A tangible, hold-in-your-hand answer. And a smile I couldn’t wipe off my face. There was a reason–I felt it. ^_^
What would be your dream job?
A traveling columnist! I would love to travel around the world, (or at least visit all 50 states) and write little stories, blurbs, articles…anything! LOL-within reason-of course, and have my traveling expenses paid and a famous reputation for my reviews. Definitely a dream job!
