I took a personality test for the whim of it. I got INFJ. Apparently I'm in the 1% of people, which makes it the rarest. Reading about it, it's pretty much how I am, with the exception of a some things. Just a fun thing I guess. Just a few updates in my life:

- Christmas is coming up and I'm very happy to be going to Tallahassee where it's a bit more chilly
- I'm a pretty sentimental person
- I spent the day on Thursday at Briana's house and hung out with her, Ashley, and her siblings. After hours of throwing the kids around, and watching the strength and warmth of her mom, I realized how much I missed my sister and how much I want to be a good mom
- I love Kate Winslet
- My room and car are in shambles and it's driving me nuts
- I want a floor to ceiling bookshelf, loaded with books, and a space carved out for my desk
- I want a nook that can be used for reading
- I'm reading Jane Eyre. It's quickly becoming my favorite book
- I keep getting closer to graduation and it keeps scaring me more and more
- Ace Christmas party was tonight. It was fun
- I'm in desperate need of new clothes
- Cooking makes me feel comfortable. I like comfortable
- I don't think what a degree is is as important as whatever it is you do with your life
- My mom made a mistake at work and when they didn't tell her she did a great job that day, she started to tear up. I realized how much I'm like my mother at that point.
- I almost cried during Agnus Dei at the Calvary Christmas show. It was that beautiful
- I get intimidated easily
- Telling someone how I really feel, whether positive or negative, is one of the hardest things. Is that common?
- I'm always trying to improve myself, without God, this venture is futile.
- Christmas music is the best
- "Iris, if you were a melody...I used only the good notes"

Easy Love?

What happened to the days when boys and girls were easy? You know, when a guy liked you, he sent you a note and then you firmly made your decision right then and there and that was the end of it. Or maybe he utilized his friends to find out if you liked him. However he did it, it was pretty cut and dry.
And what about the other way around? It used to be so easy to ward off someone who was interested in you but you weren't. "I'm not allowed to date," "I'm too young," "You're too old." It was a little more cut and dry, albeit still awkward, but not as grey.
Now! Aye now it's so much more difficult. Now if you're seen talking to a guy, oh well then you MUST be interested in them. And if you, oh I don't know, hold eye contact with a guy when you're having a conversation, which is proper etiquette by the way, well then they assume that you are interested in them even though nothing else about your body language will give you that signal. And trying to figure out of someone is saying something and then you think they're saying one thing when in fact they are saying something else entirely without uttering a single word!


I'm pretty sure I'm scared of growing up.
