The “Are You?” Meme

I’m participating in this week’s Sunday Stealing meme. If you’d like to join, click on the link above to leave a link to your blog or answer in the comments there (or here).

1. Are you a psychic in any way? ~ I believe that everyone is psychic in one way or another. Some more psychic than others. I would say, yes I am psychic in some way. I listen to that inner voice that tells me to take a different route to or from work, or that I need to watch my speed limit when driving because a cop is using a speed detector radar gun, without having a radar detector in my car. There are other things that I’ve experienced which tells me death is near for a loved one, so yes, I would say that I am psychic in some ways. Just not psychic enough to know what the lottery numbers will be so I can win it…..

2. Are you a good dancer?  ~ When I’ve had enough alcohol to drink, I am…. Otherwise, no I’m not a very good dancer at all….

3. Are you a good singer? ~ I used to be when I was younger. I don’t exercise my music voice very often, so now it just depends on the song… Or if I’ve had enough alcohol to drink….

4. Are you a good cook? ~ It depends on what it is that I’m cooking. I make delicious meals, but I have yet to conquer making sausage gray….  Don’t judge!

5. Are you a good artist? ~ I can draw houses, trees, rainbows, flowers, butterflies, teddy bears, and swing sets in a yard, but that is as far as my “artistic abilities” go.

6. Are you a good listener? ~ I like to think that I am.

7. Are you a good public speaker? ~ I’ve been told that I am.

8. Are you a good babysitter? ~ If the child/children aren’t the type/types that believe that all they have to do is cry or whine to get their way, I am. I will not babysit a whiney child.

9. Are you a good mechanic? ~ Well, I can change a tire, a battery, an alternator, spark plugs, spark plug wires, and change a cracked head on a car… So, for a female, I believe that I may be more advanced, but not an excellent mechanic.

10. Are you a good diplomat? ~ Yes, I like to believe that I am.

11. Are you a good employee? ~ I try to be a good employee. My employer can depend on me to come in on a daily basis, provide reasonable notice when I can’t, work later when needed, willing to learn from others as well as teach others and provide my 110% every single day. So yes, I would say that I’m a good employee.

12. Are you a good dresser? ~ I am during the week, but on the weekends, I could care less. Just clean clothes for me on the weekends and I’m happy.

13. Are you a good swimmer? ~ Like a dolphin! I love to swim!

14. Are you a good skier? ~ No, I’m not. I’ve never been skiing. It’s not really on my “bucket list” as something that I would like to do someday either.

15. Are you a good gift giver? ~ That depends on who you ask that has received gifts from me. The grateful ones would say that I am.

16. Are you a good musician? ~ Hmmm… I don’t play music much anymore. I was when I was in Jr. High and high school. Most of my classes back then has something to do with music, being singing or playing it.

17. Are you a good comedian? ~  I am when I’m over exhausted. I get crazy silly and come up with some really funny jokes when I’m overly tired.

18. Are you a good cleaner? ~ That’s what my teens are for! – Just kidding!! – Maybe I’m not kidding… I don’t like cleaning, but it has to be done….

19. Are you a good actor? ~ When I’m pulling a prank on someone…. And I can hold in the laughter… Okay, maybe I’m not a very good actor….

20. Are you a good writer? ~ My writing can use a lot of improvement, but from what I know, there are a lot of writers who believe that their writing could use a lot of improvement, too…. Even Steven King.

Top Five Favorite Quotes

1. “Learn something new every day.” ~ I’m not sure if this is someone else’s original quote or not, but I know I live by this on a daily basis. You never stop learning in life and there is always something new to learn, young or old.

2. “It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.” ~ Confucius – Life can get hard sometimes, but you have to keep going, even when you think you can’t. There is always a light at the end of the dark tunnel, no matter how dark it seems. Which brings me to my next favorite quote.

3. “When you get into a tight spot and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on another minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.” ~Harriet Beecher Stowe – I’ve been told that I’m a very strong person by those who have seen my struggles, but this is the very quote that I remember when I’m going through difficult times and it helps keep me going and holding to faith that everything will work out. Guess what: they always do work out.

4. “There is nothing permanent, except change.” ~Heraclitus – It doesn’t matter if you are going through good times or bad times, the fact in life is that everything changes, all of the time.

5. “The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.” ~Alan Watts – I love changes because as I said above, everything changes. However, I know there are those that don’t like changes because they are afraid of them, they don’t understand the changes or the reason behind them. Changes, no matter if they are good or bad, are always made to help the person grow into something better, be it mentally, physically, emotionally, or spiritually.

These are my top five favorite quotes, what are your top five favorite quotes. Please share in the comments or on your own blog and give a link in the comments.

Okay, so I've been feeling a bit "boggy," but with my new job, I don't have enough time to sit down and blog. I'm currently looking for and testing new apps that I can use on my Android phone that will will make blogging easier and faster. I'm currently using Droid blogger (I believe it is called). Are there others that may be better to use or am I using one of the best ones out there? Thoughts? Suggestions? Please share.
