Not really back, but I had a resurgence in interest in the MBTI tests and I remembered placing the infographs on my profile page here on LiveJournal.
Not that I didn't have some really nice times on here... and some not so nice ones... but, you understand, Facebook.
Back to the point! I've retested in my old age *cough34cough* and was curious to the mental state I was in backnin my early twenties. Yeah, a decade ago. The mind boggles. So it seems I was more feeling anf lovely dovey back then. I was an INFP, a perfectionist, a creative soul who wanted to contribute to her world. Now? Now I'm more cynical, and lazy, still trying to be a perfectionist but more apathetic about the whole situation. I test as an INTx. Why is that last letter blank? Because I'm a P or a J, pretty much down the middle. I think I side harder with INTP because I find myself having inward conversation (introveted thinking) more than introverted intuition. My enneagram number has changed as well. Before I was a 2w1, but now I am a 5w4.
I think I owe most of my changes to leaving my immediate family behind and moving on with my life. I don't have the urge to behave in a timid way. Again, I am most apathetic in my approach to life. I am still creative, I still enjoy writing as well as scrapbooking, and working with polymer clay. I'm still messy, but it's gotten a lot better.
Just some thoughts I wanted to gwt out of my mind, but didn't really have anyone to talk to about. I'm glad you're still here LiveJournal.
Don't you love it when you make $1200 a month and then find out your prescription costs $1500 a month? Doesn't that totally make your day? And when you apply for low income insurance, you get denied because of something you haven't had for over a year, but they're claiming it as active, doesn't that just want to make you dance under the sun crying about double rainbows?
I know I sure do...
I know it makes me pleased as punch when my boyfriend gets hospitalized every other month it seems because of this infection... get it together Kaiser!
I must admit, I'm really enjoying this year. I'm looking for a new job (a closer one) and I'm getting ready to go back to school, which I am seriously looking forward too. Having just "work friends" sucks. I miss hanging out with people and not just having brief chats as we pass each other.
I want to start sewing again. That Singer that I bought wants to be used again. It's so pretty! I am going to have to buy a new belt and a proper chair for it.
Also, too many characters floating in my head right now. I need to get them down on paper. I miss creative chats with everyone.
I remember when I used to check LJ multiple times a day to see what was going on but I haven't signed on in ages, and haven't even bothered to look at what's going on over here, myspace either.
I hope everyone's doing well and stuff. I'm still alive, working more, but I can't complain about that.
I'm on facebook now too, not super posty there, but I have lots of pictures up, mostly of my cat >.>;;
So, I've been practicing as the Front End Supervisor at work, I should know if I get the promotion or not by the end of the week. I hope so, I have a year on the other girl that's going for it.
I've decided I hate email, I never check it except maybe once a month. I had over 1111 unread messages in my hotmail account and 90 in my gmail account.
I applied for a front end supervisor position. I don't really want it but I want a pay raise and more hours, so... yeah...
I'm so happy to have gotten 25 hours of work this week, but I'm so tired from standing up for 6 hours straight today. It was pretty busy too, everyone trying to get ready for mother's day. One guy really pissed me off and amused me a bit at the same time, I think he's a dumbass, but I'll leave that opinion up to you.
I rang up his stuff and his total was $11.47. He took one look at it and started bitching about how the taxes were raised and how it was Obama's fault. His subtotal was $10.55, sales tax for the city I work in is at 8.75%. Last year it was 7.75%, it only went up 1%, it's not that big of a deal, we don't even pay the most sales tax in the state of California. California's economy is total shit right now, some people got IOUs on their State Tax return because of it. If anything, the increase was necessary and a GOOD thing. Roads don't fix themselves. I didn't tell this to the guy but I had to roll my eyes after he left.
