Pride Weekend

The Pink Triangle and Sutro Tower.

What kind of human are you?

Naturally, you are a person of extremely high self-worth. You are what people consider to be a very high-quality human being. The kind of person everyone aspires to be (and be with). Your mind is capable of excelling in arts, letters, manners, scholarly and social pursuits. It would be practically impossible to be bored around you!

Park Ranger

I remember a long time ago in high school, I took a career assessment test and one of the suggestions it gave me was park ranger. At the time, I thought that the test was stupid for giving me that has an option.

But now, as I sit here in the redwoods waiting to go zip lining, just listening to the birds and the wind (and ignoring the occasional car that passes by and the Mormon kids camp), I think that the test might have been on to something. I think I wouldn’t mind being alone in a tree house keeping an eye on the forest for a couple of months at a time. Think it would be relaxing and help me out in a good way.

Of course, there would have to be a decent internet connection out in the wilderness. No internet would be a deal breaker.


The Tiger In The Year Of The Wood Horse (2014)

In Horse years, Tigers are not always as lucky as usual.  The Horse truly loves you and approves of your zany energy.  But sometimes – only sometimes – misfortune befalls Tigers in Horse years.  Don’t Panic.  This bad luck is not life-threatening.  But it does mean you will have to labor harder under somewhat adverse conditions in order to reach the kinds of summits of success for which you are so famous.  I don’t mean to imply that you won’t have enough money or that you or some beloved family member will fall ill and die.  But small events will arise as obstacles and may cause you grievances.  More specifically, this Horse year can impinge on your natural good health.  Here, because luck is not always on tap in Horse years, you will have to work harder to keep fit, avoid sugars and starches to stay thin and double up on the workouts at the gym.  If you should happen to be married or in a long-term relationship now, take your loved one on an exciting journey somewhere new and instructive.  In Horse years, you will enjoy entering a whole new culture together, bringing back souvenirs, taking photos and maybe even making new friends.  The mood will be jolly this year.  But the work may prove difficult.

What happened in my birth year?

What happened in my birth year?.

10 things you might not have known about me. (via Mew)

God, can’t believe it took me 3.5 years for me to finish this.  Shows how much my depression has attacked my life and self-worth.

  1. I was 18-19 before I learned to swallow pills.  Before I would have to crush them and mix it with something  to take them.
  2. Not all the time, but more than occasionally, I search the Missed Connections on Facebook to see if anyone is looking for me (Nobody so far…)
  3. Even though I really don’t find Ben Stiller all that funny, Zoolander is the greatest comedy ever made and it will always cheer me up.
  4. For someone who loves technology, I don’t really use it as much has you think I would.  I have a few downloaded media items (movies/music/books).  I still like having a physical copy in my hands.
  5. I am weird when it comes to peanut butter and chocolate.  I hate Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.  I like Reese’s Pieces though.  I hate Chocolate & Peanut Butter ice cream.  But a Chocolate Peanut Butter cookie is acceptable; not great, but I wouldn’t refuse it either.  Butterfingers are disgusting.
  6. I hate hearing my voice in recordings.  It’s one of the main reasons why I rarely call people on the phone and rather text/message/email/write someone.
  7. Since I graduated high school, there has only been six months that I haven’t worked for a college bookstore so 25+ years.
  8. I actually consider myself bisexual, but plan on marrying straight.
  9. Used to be a nail biter.  Eventually forced myself to quit, but I still attack my cuticle like a rabid wolf sometimes.
  10. I know how to cook and at one point in my life,  I wanted to be a chef.  However, due to a passive aggressive roommate, I stopped cooking completely and even years later, I rarely cook at home.
