#1 I was challenged at work to describe myself in one word. After flailing for several minutes I settled on “goofy”. I wasn’t thrilled with that answer, especially since WAS a work exercise. For the record the runner up words were “honest” and caring”. I fit all of those, but I don’t think any of them give the complete picture.
“Who are you?”
Seems like an innocent enough question, but it’s actually pretty tough- especially when you have to do it in only a couple words. I’ve been trying to answer that myself lately and got the answer in the most unexpected place. But first, a couple recent attempts:
#2 I joined a group called the North Iowa Bloggers. I’ve been aware of this group for some time but wasn’t sure if it would be a good fit for me since I don’t blog full time- this blog is just a fun little hobby of mine. I haven’t met everyone yet, but the ones I have have been super fun so I’m feeling great about joining the group even though “blogger” isn’t one of the top words I’d use to describe myself.
Then yesterday the oddest thing happened- I happened upon a Facebook quiz. These things are everywhere and usually about as useful as an electric pineapple. But, I’m not above some mindless entertainment, so I took the quiz titled “What Stands Out about You?” with zero expectations. My answer at the end? Genuine. The more I thought about it the more I liked it.
I think this is my word. I wear my heart on my sleeve. I’m a terrible liar. I laugh loud and hard when something is funny. I’m loyal to a fault. I’m not planning on going on a job interview anytime soon, but at least I’ll have one answer ready for the next one.
