How About You?

It's been a LONG time since I participated in one of those seven questions, ten things, love it/hate it surveys that sometimes feel like seventh grade but I'm feeling the need for something similar. I was on the eliptical at the Y on Monday reading a Health magazine and was inspired except now I can't remember any of the specific questions so I'm making them up myself!
Feel free to play along and copy and paste these into your own blog post and/or answer them in my comments section. I'm curious to see who is reading!

1. When do you feel happiest?

2. How do you take care of yourself?

3. Are you internally (by yourself) or externally (by others) motivated?

4. What do you do for fun?

5. What intimidates you?

6. What is something you're proud of?

7. Finish this sentence. I never _____________.

8. Favorite vacation spot.

9. Today is a (rate from 1 - 10).

10. Finish this sentence. If you knew me really well you'd know _____________.


I'll be back later in the day with my own responses. Don't be a shy guy!

xoxo,
Rachel

- working on my blog
- being creative

In general I'm not motivated enough for the things I should do (like university), but if I love something, I am motivated. I guess that means: internally.

Mama Petite said...

How fun!

1. When do you feel happiest?
Anytime my husband gets to come home. Yes, I'm that cheesy! But it isn't that often. :( When he's gone I'm happiest when I'm sewing, it's a newer hobby and I still have a lot to learn, or when I'm in the nursery getting things done.

2. How do you take care of yourself?
I TRY to keep a healthy diet, lots of water, and when I'm not 9 months pregnant I love to exercise. And a positive mind/attitude. Being positive is a definite priority of mine!

3. Are you internally (by yourself) or externally (by others) motivated?
I'd say both. I am usually externally sparked, but internally driven.

4. What do you do for fun?
Read! Blogs, that is. :P

5. What intimidates you?
Anybody great at their crafts and really dedicated to their art and/or lifestyle. Especially when it's something I may be new at.

6. What is something you're proud of?
My little family. Being a military housewife is not easy. I have nearly no friends around here (even after a year and a half of being stationed here) and zero family other than the one we are currently nurturing. Being a young wife and mother is challenging enough as it is, but doing it all on our own and succeeding when very few thought we would makes me proud.

7. Finish this sentence. I never want to lose my desire to constantly want to push myself further, and learn as much as I can.

8. Favorite vacation spot.
Anything outdoors!

9. Today is a (rate from 1 - 10).
Well, today the sun hasn't risen yet, but yesterday was a 10! And I am hoping today will follow suit. I have my last "routine" doctor's appointment!

10. Finish this sentence. If you knew me really well you'd know that I'd rather face death than eat jelly. (Okay, okay! I'm exaggerating a bit, but in all seriousness... the thought alone makes me want to vomit! The consistency of it scares me and very few people know this because I don't want to be pressured into trying it "just one more time, pleeeease!")

2. How do you take care of yourself?
a big thing i do to keep my sanity is keep a written journal. other than that, i try to be conscious of what i eat. i like riding my bike—otherwise i don't really enjoy exercise. i always give myself goals to work towards, and am constantly making to-do lists to keep up with everything going on in my life. it's good to treat yourself every once in a while, too, just with something simple.

3. Are you internally (by yourself) or externally (by others) motivated?
knowing where i want to go in life, having goals to work towards, that's what motivates me. the constant pursuit of what i want my life to be—of who i want to be—keeps me going. also known as INTERNALLY. :)


4. What do you do for fun?
go to coffee shops/craft fairs/bookstores, go thrifting, make things, laugh with friends.

competition, loneliness, and anything that i've yet to learn how to do.

8. Favorite vacation spot.
higgins lake and traverse city are both classics in my family, and i enjoy both, but i'd rather travel EVERYWHERE than confine myself to just one spot at this point.

9. Today is a (rate from 1 - 10).
6 so far. i have a horticulture quiz later to stress over, and a lot to do for my drawing class in the morning. i'm feeling very anxious.

i'm sazzy as hell, but inside i'm so sincere.

or below
1. When do you feel happiest?
I feel happiest when I am settled in myself, there is sunny weather and I have a clear conscious. If there is scone, tea or music- I will probably be very happy, also. However, sometime, I just get giddy looking out the window over the quad.So happiness it really internal and often comes on me unexpectedly.

2. How do you take care of yourself?
I think when I let myself be I am happy. I know that I need a balance of work and play(quiet and social) and when I honor that I feel loved. Also, walking, eating fruit, taking long baths, nice smelling perfume and lotions all help you feel awesome. Talking with a certain Berean everyday make me happy(even when we are both sleepy and tired).

3. Are you internally (by yourself) or externally (by others) motivated?
I am a mixture of internally and externally. I can't have too much of either. I find that I get most charged from quiet time but sometimes if I have had too much quiet time I need to be social to feel recharged and motivated.

4. What do you do for fun?
Random things and very mundane things. I like to have things clean and that is fun for me. I like the smell of clean things-laundry, dishes, etc. So, I am a freak! I like to talk, eat meals with friends, read, knit, try recipes, write letter and read long letters from friends and go to the library(public) but I will settle for the university's in a pinch.

5. What intimidates you?
Ambiguity and expectations.Usually, they are coupled and I feel out of sorts when I am pressured by undefined expectations.

6. What is something you're proud of?
It is often a feat not to fall off of the sidewalk(ours are sooo bad) and I always proud when I manage not to trip in public but it happens and you either laugh(if it really bad) or keep going.

7.Finish this sentence. I never eat creamed corn.I don't know why you would.
