Getting To Know You

I posted and answered a few typical ice breaker questions, so you could get to know a little better.  Also, I would love for you to answer some or all the questions, so I can learn more about you.

  1.  Would you rather vacation in Alaska or Hawaii?  I would prefer Alaska, because it is beautiful and not crowded.
  2. How many pairs of shoes do you own?  I own three pairs of shoes (one pair of house-shoes, one pair of sneakers, and one pair hiking shoes).
  3. What’s your favorite holiday?  I really enjoy Christmas, because there are a ton of fun activities, the lights and decorations are lovely, and exchanging gifts is fun.
  4. If you could describe yourself as an animal, which one would it be?  I would go with raccoon.  They are intelligent, curious, silly, and mischievous.  That’s a great description for me as well.
  5. What’s your life slogan?  Improvise, Adapt, and Overcome
  6. What outdoor activities do you enjoy?  I enjoy hiking and biking.
  7. Where were you born?  I was born in Ft Bliss (El Paso) Texas.
  8. What kind of music do you enjoy?  I usually listen to Country and Southern Rock.
  9. What hobbies do you enjoy?  My favorite hobbies are blogging, reading, and photography.

Introvert Pride Shirt

I am an extreme introvert.  I thought it would be cool to get a shirt that perfectly proclaimed my introverted personality, so I went to Amazon and found several really good designs.

  1.  This first shirt is totally me.

2.  This shirt is my favorite.

3.  A social club that doesn’t require actual interaction with people, sounds like a cool idea.

4.  I can deal with a club that meets occasionally, in small groups, for limited periods of time.

5.  That’s why I prefer living in rural areas, the cities are so peopley.

Are you an introvert and can you relate to any of these shirts?  Let me know which one is your favorite.

Positive Character Traits

In Matthew 12:22-50, Jesus has a lot to say about character.  For example,

  • A tree is known by its fruit
  • Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks

Webster defines character as the mental and ethical traits of a person.  Those traits could be positive or negative.

Positive character traits that I try to incorporate into my life include:

  • Humility
  • Kindness
  • Loyalty
  • Honesty
  • Integrity
  • Generosity
  • Gratitude
  • Patience
  • Compassion
  • Friendliness
  • Dedication

I don’t always live up to my goal, but I learn from my mistakes and try again.
