1. On a scale of 1-10 how would you rate your sense of direction? 1=can't find my way out of a paper bag and 10=if I've been somewhere once I can find it blindfolded ten years later.
I am a 1! Maybe even a -1. I can't find my way out of a WET paper bag. I know the directions if I am in my hometown. But no where else. I need a compass. I used to have one on my car's rear view mirror. But not anymore. So I am just lost! I use the compass on my phone if I need to. But usually I believe in the 'left' 'right' rule. Heck with west or north!
When was the last time you looked at/used a map you could hold in your hand? (phones don't count!)
I don't read maps. They are as confusing to me as directions. I rely on my phone. But the last time I touched a map was when I found one stuck down by the driver's seat in my car. Justin must have used it when we went to Georgia.
back east, down south, out west, up north
Choose one of these directional expressions and tell us why you chose it
When I hear these directional expressions I visualize a map of the United States and can figure out which way is which. Otherwise, I don't much use these expressions.
2. Did you do more talking or listening yesterday? Is that typical? Describe your yesterday in one word.
Let me see! It was Tuesday. No one home but me. So I would say I did more listening!
In one word, yesterday was Peaceful!
3. Time, money, water-power-resources, opportunity...which one on the list are you most guilty of wasting? What might you do to change that?
Sadly, I waste water-power-resources. I am guilty of leaving lights on. I've been known to leave the water running in the sink in the kitchen. Sadly! Sad! Sad!
4. Did your family take regular vacations when you were a kid? Tell us something you remember about a family road trip from your own childhood.
I don't ever remember going on a vacation as a child. The first time I remember going anywhere was on a road trip to Texas to see my sister, after she got married. Mom, younger brother Rich, and me. I think it was between my junior and senior year in high school. We just didn't go on vacations. No money for such fluff.
5. If you could grow anything you wanted, what would you grow? Why?
I have a pretty green thumb. I am lucky this way. But right now I would want my orchids to bloom. Its been awhile. They need to be re-potted.
6. Insert your own random thought here
I just finished listening to the book I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzia. The format I listened to was for young people. I don't know if it is different from the original book. But it was way cheaper! The story is narrated by Neela Vaswani. It is a very good story. Malala is from Pakistan. The story takes place when this 11 year old girl risked her life to continue going to school. Girls in Pakistan were not allowed school. Her father was the principal of the school and she continued going. She was shot in the face by the Taliban at age 15. Because she was speaking out against them. She recovers and goes on to win the Nobel Peace Prize. It is an amazing story. Especially knowing how young 11 years is. She is an inspiration to all. It should be required for all students in America. They have no idea how lucky they are and how much they take 'going to school' for granted! I give it ***.
