Last month, Wenderina posted an entry with some intriguing questions regarding your personality. I decided to tag along, although the answers are not mind-blowing at all and I'm late posting them (Sorry, Wenderina!) but here are my answers to the questions:
What historical figure do you most identify with and why?
I'm not a history buff so I'll have to pass on this one.
Which word or phrase do you think is overused right now?
I'm a little out of the loop on current events to really know the answer to this question. I'm sure there are tons that are still being used that are past their expiration date.
How would you explain your profession to a child?
Obviously, my current profession as a stay-at-home-mom is nurturing our future to be the best that they can be. As a vet technician it was helping family pets feel better and stay healthy. As a zoo keeper, preserving the animals for our future generations.
What did you have to learn the hard way?
I have to completely take this one from Wenderina.... Patience. And I too am still learning this everyday. Especially with a child.
What do you sing or hum when you're alone?
More than likely it's a child's song like "Elmo's Song", "Momma don't you tickle my toes", and "We are the Dinosaurs".
What talent would you most like to have?
The only thing I can think of I'm not sure it's actually a talent, more of a skill. I would love to have the ability and knowledge of training horses dressage and be able to compete with them in a national level.
What movie character would you like to portray and why?
I'm totally stumped on this one... sorry. Not sure I watch movies enough apparently.
Is there a book that changed your perspective on life?
One More Day by Mitch Album. I've really tried lately, especially now that I have this little being playing monkey-see, monkey-do everyday, watching what I say and how I say things. I don't want to take things, especially people, for granted.
What's the best reward for a job well done?
A sincere thank you with a smile. Or a little kiss from my 15 month old does it every time.
What is your personal motto?
When I was working in the zoo field is was "It's just a job... It doesn't define me... It's not who I am." Now, as a SAHM I think I can rephrase that: "This is a job, it defines who my son will be, this is who I am."
