Fascination with MBTI...and Still Alive. =)

Well hello, world!
It's been a while, hasn't it?? My goodness. Time just keeps a-flyin' by, doesn't it??

Today was Daylight Savings Time and (hopefully everyone remembered--if not, set back your clocks an hour RIGHT NOW!!) the day seems to have progressed rather slowly. Was that just me or did anyone else experience that same odd phenomenon? I really did feel that extra hour! Not that I'm complaining or anything. Even though I'm in my twenties I still don't think I have enough time in the day to get everything accomplished! So I used my time wisely and worked on some school assignments, so hopefully I won't be cramming as much tomorrow.

Since I am randomly, out of the blue, back in the blogosphere (is that a word? If not, just roll with me here =)  I'm suddenly contemplating all the various topics I could discuss.

Maybe I'll start with one of my favorite fascinations. On my right (and yours too), you'll find my MBTI assessment. For those not quite introduced to my obsession MBTI means Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. It is basically a personality test where you discover that you are actually quite normal, and your quirks all make up this wonderful four-lettered combination that perfectly describes YOU!!!
 It is quite a liberating experience. In fact, my older sibling didn't want to take it for the longest time because she was afraid that she wouldn't really like her personality type and it wouldn't accurately describe her. Well, when I finally pegged her down and forced her to answer the test questions, she was thrilled when her personality description was quite accurate, and she felt liberated to be fully 'her'! Just in case you  were wondering, she is an ESFP, which I would have never pegged her to be. See? We all learn something new through this test!

It's been quite a process of discovery, but I have FINALLY been able to psycho-analyze my family, and my dad is an ESTJ, my mom is an ISFP, my sister is an ESFP, and I am an INFP.

Quite an interesting mix of family dynamics, aren't we??

I became obsessed with the MBTI when I first took the personality test in high school and when I read my type description I was a bobblehead--nodding vigorously at almost everything I read. It was such a liberating thing--odd quirks I thought NO ONE else in the world did or experienced were 'normal' for me because I was an INFP!

So. If you want to be validated by your personality type, and suddenly feel freedom to be beautiful, quirky you, pu-LEASE go to and take the free test. Then go to this website: to learn all about yourself. It is very important that you answer the questions honestly and not how you think you should answer them.

Hopefully I can go into more detail about the types next time.
Until then, happy personality discovering! =)

Air, but not much else.

Well well well.

I just discovered that I am going off sugar and starch for the next two weeks.

That means I get to eat:

1.) Air
3.)things rabbits survive on
4.)lots and lots and lots of meat


Oh, and cheese. That makes me very, very happy. I am afraid that I am actually deathly allergic to cheese, because I love it so much.

No, this is not a drop-dead dieting scheme I am forcing myself on. (although if I lose a few pounds I won't be complaining!) My mom just had an appointment with a natural doctor--i.e. doesn't use prescriptions and drugs as the answer to every ailment in life. She's been dealing with headaches, and the doctor said to try this diet for two weeks to see if it helps her any.

And to help her with this new "lifestyle change" for two weeks, my sis and I are joining her!

Awwww. What good daughters are we?? :)
Being the most health-nutty one in the family, I'm pretty excited about doing this, believe it or not.

Has anyone else out there ever done anything as nutty as going cold-turkey on sugar AND starches at the same time??

Or do I "take the cake"?--pun intended. Heeheehee! =D
Perhaps you'd like to join us on our little quest towards health?
No? Yeh, I wouldn't be that crazy either...

I am happy to announce that the Spring semester off to an uneventful start, is thus far three weeks in, and I am surviving MATH with an 'A'!!!! Wooot!!! Hallelujah and glory be!


Or are you like me, and watching the superbowl for the commercials?

Or, are you like others who will be watching the superbowl for the food? (that WOULD have been me, except for my drastic diet change, as of... an hour ago)

Maybe you're extremely special and watching the superbowl for a combination of all three?

That'd be O.K., too.

Well. Sorry for the weird post. I'm in an interesting mood. I'm sure it'll be turning sour once my body filters out all the sugar from my bloodstream.

Happy carrot munching!

Psalms 31:19-21 NKJ

Oh how great is Your goodness, 
which You have laid up for those who fear You,
which You have prepared for those who trust in You
in the presence of the sons of men!
You shall hide them in the secret place
of Your presence from the plots of man;
You shall keep them secretly 
in a pavilion from the strife of tongues.
Blessed be the LORD,
for He has shown me
 His marvelous kindness in a strong city!
