My drive. While being a realist I have an optimistic outlook that can't be crushed. I hardly ever give up on something, and when things get hard I push harder and find a way.

That voice used to be in my head as well. It still is, but I've learned to silence it.

I like that I'm intelligent and I have a positive mindset, which has helped me create a good life.
Physically I like my long hair and my body as well.

Hm... if I'm going out for more than 10 minutes, I always have food and water. It helps me.when I feel anxiety sneaking in. I also almost always have business cards on me. You never know when you could use them.

What do you love about yourself?

Fascinating thread! :)

I honestly love pretty much everything about myself; I suppose the highlights would be my intelligence and ability levels despite, (probably), growing up with a neurological developmental disorder called Autism Spectrum Disorder, likely because my mother was a raving alcoholic during her pregnancy with me, causing me to almost die upon birth; I love that most of my life has consisted of a long, horrific series of events, with only very brief moments of peace and happiness, which would be gone in an instant; violent alcoholic father, dysfunctional family life, childhood criminal record, years of institutionalization and abuse; the list goes on, but despite everything that's happened....I've turned out really, really good, and I honestly don't think I would change a single thing if I were able to go back in time, and give myself a much happier childhood than what fate had in store for me...I think it's made me a much stronger, and sensitive person, mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

...I think I'm going to change the world somehow. ...I just love that. :o

I also love all my little, weird eccentricities. :cool:



Aside from the usual suspects (Keys, Wallet, Phone), do you have one thing you cannot leave home without?

My gun; people scare the crap outta me haha. :D

I also take with me my pocket knife, karambit knife, tactical flashlight, leatherman, and a BIC lighter. Also, I usually carry a shoulder bag with some nameless items in it, and a backpack in the vehicle with some...other stuff. :p

I also carry a wallet, keychain, and smartphone of course; love the GPS feature, and Siri's just a hoot. :XD laugh:

Aside from the usual suspects (Keys, Wallet, Phone), do you have one thing you cannot leave home without? Does ponytail holder work? I always keep one on my wrist, even if I have my hair up already. I've gotten out of so many jams with that ponytail holder--it once even held someone's pants together when the button broke off.

Night time for sure; I have really sensitive hearing; whenever I'm awake I'm pretty much bombardered by a wall of noise. At night time though, the whole world seems to go almost silent; calm, quiet and slow. It's always the most peaceful time of day for me; probably why I'm an insomniac. :sick:

I like 1-4am range but only when I haven't been to bed yet. I hate waking up and that usually happens in the morning, which is why I fall into the "not a morning person" category but in reality I am just a "don't wanna wake" person.

Shahaku

Grocery shopping: Are you a list person or do you wing it?

Juniper
16 Mar 2019, 12:03
Grocery shopping: Are you a list person or do you wing it?

I'm bad at lists unless I'm getting things for a specific recipe. I usually wing it and get home and say to myself "damn it, I forgot this one thing that I made the whole trip for" and tell myself I will start making a list. Never happens.

iris
16 Mar 2019, 12:42
Grocery shopping: Are you a list person or do you wing it?

Most of what I need is habit, so I wing it. If I need something out of the usual I write it in my phone... and forget to check because I don't usually do that :p

volcaniclastic
16 Mar 2019, 13:07
Grocery shopping: Are you a list person or do you wing it?

Meticulous lists, otherwise I'll just buy olives and ice cream and forget what I came there for.

I have to do my whole life in lists or I accomplish nothing. Meal plan list, Books to read list, chores list, etc.

ThorsSon
16 Mar 2019, 13:42
Grocery shopping: Are you a list person or do you wing it?

yes.
much like my cooking:
when I cook, I often look at a recipe, put the recipe away, get out the ingredients that I think should go into it, and a few that might go well in the dish... then I wing it.

I kinda shop the same way. I have a list of things I need, and then I walk every single isle looking for ideas.

My key hook (the kind you see backpackers wear, don't know if that is what you call it). It contains not only my keys, but my key chains and other junk, like rewards cards. It's much easier to access than digging in my purse for keys and getting in the wallet.

I'm both. If I have the time I will write a list. If I don't and I have to go then and there I will just wing it.

I'm a list person. Like, I break my list down into which section of the store things are in type of list person. I can totally wing it if I need to, but I prefer a list. And I have a minimum for staples like chickpeas (which get turned into hummus), black beans, various canned tomato products, etc. on our shelf at any given time, so I fill to those minimums every two weeks. I've got a system.

Catholic architecture... seriously, the RCC has had some pretty cool churches built over the year.

Certain pieces of Orthodox theology amuse me. Specifically Heaven and Hell are the same exact place, the only real difference is your relationship with LoH and therefore how you experience it. I always found this twist on Christian cosmology entertaining.

Heathenry has Heimdall. A number of Heathen Powers irritate me on a good day but I like Heimdall.

Romans, a stroke of good fortune helped out my family years ago after a request made to Pluto in his capacity as Lord of Riches under the Earth. By virtue of that particular course of events, Pluto gets the occasional good word and Roman beliefs get kudos because Pluto is part of them.

Hellenic, if you think Pluto = Hades then see above. Otherwise, hmm, some of the mythos is pretty entertaining.

The apocrypha weren't actually banned. Pieces of them have been showing up in various bibles for quite some time. They just are considered lesser canon in many cases (enter long Prodestant vs Catholic vs other Prodestant debate now) Now the Book of Enoch may have been banned or it may have fallen in with the actual apocrypha, I don't know which books are included in the apocrypha off the top of my head.

I still deal with fluffy bunnies so rarely that I'd accuse them of being myths if it weren't for horror stories about them from multiple other people...

Anyway, pretending that Jedi is my actual religion. The fact that we fail so epically at explaining our philosophies that people think the Jedi Order is trying to produce pale imitations of Vulcans.

I don’t. It’s worth noting that -we- may not exist to be someone else’s extraterrestrials for much longer. If this thing goes pear shaped, we’ll have blipped in and out of existence in roughly zero cosmic time. Combine the amounts of those discrete units ( and their possible temporal distance) with the vast spatial difference.....and it wouldn’t be entirely surprising to find that there was never a time when one candidate et lifeform existed contemporaneously with another, or....that if they did, they would ever meet.

The universe may be teeming with life over cosmic time, and still be void at any given moment. Ships never passing in an endless night, lol.

Tardigrades are amazing. I am somewhat concerned about what happens if they survive though. We humans have a way of ruining things by introducing enormous changes through experiment or accident or sometimes just plain avarice.

It seems unlikely they survived, but they are tough little things. They don't really have any life-based ecosystem to ruin, as far as we know.

Me too! Stubborn to the bone and a bit recalcitrant. I've learned to notice when I'm doing this and I try to adjust my behavior when it happens, but it's hard. I have no problem with rules and systems, but they have to make sense. If they don't I start kicking against the rules (nothing illegal of course, mostly work related stuff). I really challenge the 'why' behind rules and people (mostly managers) don't always like me for it. It backfires sometimes :P but I can't help it.

What smell makes you cringe?

There are certain lab created scents that give me migraines and asthma type reactions. There is a very popular mall store that carries these scents. I can't even go in. I frequently smell these scents on young women and sometimes adults. That's me in the grocery store, trying to discreetly cover my nose and dodge you without being rude. I am panicking just a little. It is also very inconvenient when working with the public. My daughter had a friend when she was younger whose family would spray these perfumes all over their house, their furniture, and as air freshener. I had to make her shower as soon as she walked in the door after playing at their house. I know they smell good to other people, but to me they smell like pain and vomiting and migraine aura and they burn and seem to cling to my nose and throat.

Also, actual vomit. I'm with you there.

What's something your parents don't know about you?

I haven't spoken with my mom in something like 3 years, so quite a bit. My dad knows most everything, except my interest in kink.

What's something your parents don't know about you?

Once I grew up, they knew as little as possible about anything, good or bad. (The good was never good enough, and I never knew what was going to be considered bad.)

That I was robbed while working as a cashier in college. I wasn't going to quit, and I didn't want them to worry when they couldn't do a thing about it, unless they tried to force me home, which I also didn't want. I wasn't physically harmed, although I think there is some residual PTSD. Mostly it is a pain because now I feel like I have to keep it a secret because they would be hurt that I didn't tell them. I'm glad I didn't quit though because I think it helped to face the fear until I things felt normal again.

A lot xD my mom doesn't know I'm bi, my dad does though. But then I haven't had any contact with her in years.
I keep a lot of secrets though. My personal business doesn't concern him.

What superstition do you still follow?

I can't say bloody Mary out loud (I don't even like typing it), I don't ever get off the plane in Rankin Inlet lest I get stuck there, and I'll never say "what's the worst that could happen?"

I'm relatively superstitious.

It's a silly thing and I think it might be specific to Denmark. But j never pick elderflower or elderberries without thanking "hyldemor" (the spirit of the tree) and offering something in return.

I think the biggest one is I still knock on wood and always get a bit nervous if I can't find any actual wood.

I still say Gesuntheit when people sneeze. I think it's stupid and unnecessary but I still do it.

I have an embarrassing number. Knock wood. Don't tempt fate. Salt over the shoulder if I spill it. One time we were on a long drive and for reasons that I still do not understand we kept hitting birds. This was in the South West US, and there are lots of ravens. I was so worried we were going to hit one. I love them anyway, but I was also thinking that killing a raven has got to be some very bad luck. I have driven that road many times in my life and that was the only time hitting birds was a problem. It was almost like when they all fly into the ground, or when whales beach. We did not hit any ravens, and the ones that hang out at my mom's house seemed okay with us, so disaster averted.

I knock on whatever the counter at work is made of.
I must pick up every single penny I find on the ground. And mind you I have bad vision. But I can spot a penny or a black cat in the dead of night in the parking lot!

I'm actually opposite I guess. I purposefully walk under ladders. I enjoy spotting black cats. I throw no salt over my shoulder hoping for the Devil to show up in my kitchen whilst I'm cooking chorizo in my fuzzy pink flip flops, house nightgown and hair in messy bun.

Oh and I for sure wish on falling stars. And when I do I find it very hard to come up for something to wish for other than Wolverine. Because I guess I'm content. So that's a plus.
