A Me Project

I’m starting this page in hopes of figuring out something concrete about myself. I once had an idea of who I was, then it went away, and I’d like to see what I can do to get something back. This will likely be nebulous and changing for a while, but hopefully will become more solid as I work on it.

I always like (topics):

  • Astronomy
  • Entomology
    • Esp. fuzzy caterpillars and moths
  • Psychology
  • Nature
    • Esp. water
      • clean rivers
      • snow-fed lakes
      • tropical ocean
      • warm rain (and the smell before/at the start of a rain)
    • Clouds and blue sky
    • Fluffy snow flakes
    • Certain areas’ smells (such as some foliage)
  • Music
  • Horses
  • My dog

I always like (action):

  • Photographing nature, certain people, and animals
  • Breathing fresh air
  • Hearing natural-setting water (be it fresh or salt)
  • Camping/backpacking with my parents
  • Sleeping soundly
  • Watching horses
  • Eating sugar (sigh)

Things that change:

  • What I want to study “in school”
    • Biology
    • Music
    • Photography
    • Art
    • Accounting
    • Bookkeeping
  • What I want to be “when I grow up”
    • Elementary school music teacher (gave up due to emetophobia)
    • Flight attendant
    • Airplane pilot
    • Astronaut (gave up due to emetophobia)
    • Author (of children and/or adolescent books)
    • Librarian
    • Scientist
    • House wife
    • Accountant
  • Method of self-expression or creativity
    • Typing
      • Blog
      • Poem
      • Short stories
      • Freewrites
    • Sketching
    • Music clips, instrument or voice
    • Painting
    • Knitting
  • Person who receives my obsessive blatherings during the day (changes in time; only ever 1 person at a time)
  • Area of current obsessive interest (can change frequently)

Taste in TV / movies:

  • Comedies
  • Documentaries
  • Sci-Fi
  • How-To’s / Educational / Informative

Taste in physical books:

  • Cartoon-comics such as Calvin & Hobbs and old Garfield
  • Narrow portion of certain romance-comedies or romance-suspense (but only if totally stupid)
  • Narrow portion of certain, old fantasies that I’ve read 1000 times (such as Anne McCaffrey)

Taste in audio books (the best invention ever):

  • Financial books!
  • Relationship books
  • How-to books
  • Educational course material / lectures

Stable Dislikes:

  • People intentionally hurting other people
  • People intentionally hurting animals
  • People intentionally destroying things (I don’t even like watching things get demolished that need to be demolished)
  • Animals killing other animals (although I don’t mind watching them eat)
  • People using gender-based or sexual-based words as insults
  • Anyone insulting any member of my family (including extended)
  • People judging other people (I realize I can judge, too)
  • The feel of the skin of a popcorn kernel stuck in my gums
  • Sore throat
  • Intimidating-looking spiders, especially if they move
  • People wishing violence upon other people
  • People wishing violence on members of other political parties
  • People getting riled up over sports
