10 Random Things

Steph over at A Room of Her Own tagged me for this one. I was looking for something fun to blog about (I have a bunch of things floating around in my mind but nothing gelling) and I think that this will hit the spot.

1. I am an ENFP – Reading about the Idealist personality profile in Please Understand Me II was the first time I ever read a book and said “Hey! That is me!”. I find personality types fascinating.

2. I like even numbers better then odd and my favorite/lucky number is 2.

3. I used to work as an Information Technology Consultant and spent several years as a consultant to the IRS (working on their accounting systems, not tax collection!)

4. I am a cat person. My first cat was a calico named Peaches that I got when I was in fourth grade. Our current cats are an orange tabby named Lapis and a long-haired tuxedo cat named Sammie.

5. I love public libraries. The whole concept of being able to check out an book for free is such a wonderful thing. I worked at the library while at Va Tech and am trying to carve out some time to start volunteering at our local library.

6. I have depression. I have been on and off medication over the years. I have successfully been able to manage it for the past two or so years using homeopathy, herbal supplements/vitamins, acupuncture and a great therapist.

7. I am legally blind without my glasses or contacts.

8. I auditioned for my first play in 6th grade and got the lead in “The Villian and the Toyshop”. My last theater work was running lights when 7 months pregnant with Jason.

9. I like organizing things but never have the time. I am a very cluttery person.

10. My guilty pleasures are Starbuck’s lattes and Gray’s Anatomy.


About throwingmarshmallows

I am a homeschooling mom to two sweet, energetic boys although I am probably not exactly what you would expect (definitely NOT your stereotypical homeschooler, if there is really such a thing). I support progressive political causes (yes, liberals can and do homeschool!) and I have found a spiritual home in the Unitarian Universalist Church. I have no real idea of how I want to use this blog, but will probably focus on homeschooling, things that I am learning from my boys, personal thoughts and opinions and maybe some liberal politics thrown in, who knows!

  1. We seem to have a great deal in common, especially with our love for libraries. :-) I am an ENFP too (or INFP – I forget which – I fall right in the middle of the continuum between “Introvert” and “Extrovert”) Thanks for playing.

    Loved this one—both would be on my list also.

  3. I thought you tagged anyone who read it, but that must have been someone else!! I’ve read this meme in so many blogs lately.

    Anyway, just wanted to point out that I’m your exact MB opposite — ISTJ!!
