Day 20 Introvert or extrovert
I’m very much an introvert. I must have alone time and lots of it. I prefer the company of a few friends more than a crowd and I really despise situations where I have to make small talk. I suppose I think everyone should want to talk about philosophical issues at the drop of a hat. 🙂 Even though I consider myself very introverted, being a nurse has – for lack of a better word – forced me to be more extroverted…which I think is good. We all need to be well- rounded and adaptable.
I’d have to say I’m a little of both. I like to be by myself and do my own thing sometimes, but other times, I like to be around people and in the middle of everything. I hate to be center of attention though, I’m more of a behind the scenes type of person. I like to think I’m pretty balanced in this department.
Day 21 – Favorite Childhood Toys
Barbies. For the reasons Marie listed below. I also had a stuffed raccoon named Stanaley. Not Stanley…Stanaley. 🙂 Marie didn’t mention this, but I will for her…since I’m talking about my stuffed animal. She had a blanket named Fluffy. Those two stayed with us through at least college, I know. Fluffy might still be around….😏
Well, we have both mentioned it before and I am again, but one of my favorite childhood toys was my Barbies. Elizabeth and I played Barbies pretty much every time we were together when we were kids. I would stay overnight sometimes and we would play Barbies until after we were told to go to bed and we would set the alarm and wake up as early as we could to continue our ‘story line’ as well! Talk about imaginations! Our Barbies had some serious and creative issues, but we had such a blast every time we got together and played. Those are some of my most precious childhood memories!
Ultimately, I truly believe our Barbie playing skills are the foundation of our ability to come up with and develop ‘The Waiting’ series! It’s totally like playing Barbies without the Barbies! 😉
