i guess i'm in the wrong line of work.

I just took a "Color Career Counselor" quiz. It was fun. And kind of hard for me, actually.
Here are my results:
Best Occupational Category

You're a CREATOR


Nonconforming, Impulsive, Expressive, Romantic, Intuitive, Sensitive, and Emotional

These original types place a high value on aesthetic qualities and have a great need for self-expression. They enjoy working independently, being creative, using their imagination, and constantly learning something new. Fields of interest are art, drama, music, and writing or places where they can express, assemble, or implement creative ideas.


Suggested careers are Advertising Executive, Architect, Web Designer, Creative Director, Public Relations, Fine or Commercial Artist, Interior Decorator, Lawyer, Librarian, Musician, Reporter, Art Teacher, Broadcaster, Technical Writer, English Teacher, Architect, Photographer, Medical Illustrator, Corporate Trainer, Author, Editor, Landscape Architect, Exhibit Builder, and Package Designer.


Consider workplaces where you can create and improve beauty and aesthetic qualities. Unstructured, flexible organizations that allow self-expression work best with your free-spirited nature.

Suggested Creator workplaces are advertising, public relations, and interior decorating firms; artistic studios, theaters and concert halls; institutions that teach crafts, universities, music, and dance schools. Other workplaces to consider are art institutes, museums, libraries, and galleries.

Well, I'm definitely emotional. But in the most inappropriate ways. And I pretend that I'm not.

Daniel has never been fooled by this and it makes me crazy. He is sensitive to my emotions, though. Sometimes.

I like how under the "Creator Occupations" there are words like, director, designer, executive.
I day dream about being a writer. But mostly because I'm lazy. I walk into Once Over in the mornings and see people lined at the bar with their multi-colored Apple notebooks and I tell myself that they are freelance writers and have more fun than me.
When I was younger I thought I wanted to be an Editor. But I don't even know what that means. To me it means that I would be a picky reader with manuscripts being thrown at me all day long. I would drink more espresso and live in a trendy apartment with large windows and I'd take breaks from reading and editing to run on Town Lake in the middle of the day. I'd shop at Whole Foods and cook like a gourmet and drink red wine (blech) out of wide glasses with long stems.

What I really, really want to be is barefoot and pregnant. But I'll wear shoes when I'm a mommy and take my baby out in the jogging stroller. I refuse to be fat. Despite the fact that I chased my workout last night with a brownie...but I digress. Daniel likes this idea too. We are totally on the same page.
I'm working on it.
Although I think he wants me to be a famous blogger, too.
I'm working on that as well. As if you couldn't tell, my dear three readers.

Oh, dreams. It's good to dream.


  1. Three readers? You have at least four in Slovakia alone! You are already an internationally famous blogger.

  2. Love, from reader #2 in Slovakia.

  3. Don't forget your readers(three) in Rockport!

  4. Aww! I am really feeling the love!
    Thanks for reading my ramblings. I don't know how you can stand it :)
    But what are families for if not unconditional love?

  5. Hey, I read your blog too! (See if you can figure out who I am) :) Every post you write cracks me up!
