Learning Things About Myself

There is quite an interesting challenge at 365 Cards today.  To play along, you must create a card that reflects YOU.  I knew this one wasn't gonna be easy.  I don't even like when I have to write an "about me" paragraph for an online profile. Lol.


As I sat down to start making this card, I started thinking about what people who know me have said about me. One of the things my mom usually points out is that I'm a very "black and white" sort of thinker. (Ta-da! Color scheme!!)  I tend to keep things short and sweet and pretty simple.  I like things to have an order and a reason-- a pattern.  (Bazinga!!)  But at the same time, there's the creative side of me that loves spontaneity and doing silly things for no reason at all :-)  To represent this part of me, I decided to interrupt the black and white with a shock of green.  It's my favorite color.  Except when it looks like pukey green, which it kind of does in the photo.  In real life it's more of a lime green.  Also, I decided to do a birthday card because guess what... my birthday is Monday!! Woo hoo! Party time.




While I was thinking about all this stuff, I started wondering whether I would consider myself a "right-brained" person or a "left-brained" person.  People have told me that I'm very much like my mom (who, I would say, is definitely a left-brained thinker). But then just as many people have said that I'm like my dad, who is a graphic designer and artist and, I would say, tends to be more of a right-brained thinker.  So out of morbid curiosity, I found and took this test.  Turns out, I'm 49/51!!!!  I laughed when I saw the results.  It explains SO much. To borrow a line from the movie, Runaway Bride, "I am profoundly and irreversibly screwed up." LOL. Just kidding... sort of.


Haha. Thanks for stopping by today!
