In The Spotlight

Has many uses; adaptable; changeable...Alright, I guess I qualify!  Thank you, Sophia (Sophia The Writer), for passing this 'award' to me!  


The rules for this award are ---
*Thank and link to the person who nominated me.
*Share seven random facts about myself.
*Pass the award along to 15 new-found blogging buddies.
*Contact those buddies to congratulate them.

Now here are my 7 Random Facts, some of which I've already included on my 25 random thoughts when it was the craze on Facebook a few years ago...remember that one?  Anyway...

1.  I am a Scorpio which translates to being passionate, intense, deep, loyal, brooding, complicated and also vengeful.  It's exhausting to live like this, most days, especially when I feel very intense about a lot of things, but I can't imagine living any other way.  

2.  As a child, I thought I was going to be a doctor.  When I entered the university, I was accepted in the Molecular Biology and Biotechnology program, but eventually ended up shifting to Sociology.  I found it more interesting to study actual people and behavior than molecules and numbers.  At this time in my life though, I am still uncertain as to what I really want to be, or want to do.  I'll probably die wondering.  Hopefully, I'll get to live life in between.

3.  I've always loved and felt sentimental about The Alligator King from Sesame Street.  Remember that one?  However, I've also always felt sad about it and found it a bit depressing, even as a child.  I'm not sure why.  Perhaps because the King ended up so miserable, or perhaps I felt the six children did not love him enough?  I don't really know.  This could just be me overanalyzing once again with much intensity.  Go figure!

4.  I've always been the type of person who never liked making decisions and would rather leave it to 'fate' or external circumstances to decide for me.  However more and more I find myself in situations where I feel the desire to make a decision but now the circumstances won't allow me to.  How funny.  (I'm not laughing though).

5.  I'm really bad at engaging in small talk.  I prefer deep and meaningful conversations, which is also part of the reason why I find it hard to develop new friendships.  I mean, how many people are really cool about meeting someone for the first time and being asked, "What is the greatest joy and deepest pain you've ever felt?"  

6.  I've just very recently tried Indian food, for the very first time!  I've feared it all this time and now I'm craving it.  I'm happy that I can still surprise myself sometimes.

7.  I believe Physics is an extremely spiritual science.  Much of the basic laws of matter and motion translate to spiritual laws which isn't really surprising, is it?  Everything in this world is energy after all.

  8. Wow you and I have kind of a kindred spirit thing going on! I'm definitely the kind who cries on a first date...why did I just say that out loud?

    You can ask me about my greatest pain and joy any time! I'd love to have a nice deep conversation with you; it's so hard to get that out here in La-La Land, although we do have lots of woo-woo people in the industry so you end up having these weirdly deep discussions with like photographers.

    I used to be a Sociology major (did I tell you that?) and I love the study.

  9. Hey, thanks for making my week, Joy. I'll attempt to post 7 things about myself over the next week or so, but right now I'm stuck at 6. Well, really 5 and cheeky personal story that never really happened. But I'm working on it!

    Word verification definition: feeglys- that funny feeling you get just before your chair leans too far back.
