I have been posting quizzes for the past few weeks as I participate in Big Picture Classes’ Quizapalooza. This week’s version of the quiz focuses on ‘when’ questions.
When is the best time of day? I love the way the light looks right around 8am at this time of year. Things are still quiet outside but the sun is up and the light hits the walls in our front room in just the right way.
When is my favorite season of the year? Right here and right now. I always used to think that I loved spring because it was my birthday season. And then I loved summer because summer is easy to love. Now though, I know I love fall the most. I love September for all the new-ness it represents and I love, love, love fall weather. I love the colorful leaves against the blue sky. I love the fact that you can wear just about anything and be comfortable. I love the fact that you don’t need to use the heat or the air conditioning.
When is my busiest time of year? This year my busiest time was most definitely the beginning of school. With Caroline starting middle school and my volunteer responsibilities at Katherine’s school, I felt like I couldn’t catch my breath. I am glad to say (knock on wood!) that things are beginning to feel a bit more in control.
When am I most productive? I am neither a night owl nor an early bird. As a result, I am not productive in the early morning hours or late at night. With my current schedule, I would say I get the most done in the mid morning.
When am I completely comfortable? I am completely comfortable, wearing soft clothes, snuggled on our couch or in our bed with a heavy blanket and a good book.
When do I feel out of my element? I really don’t do well in large crowds or with lots of noise. Being stuck in ‘people traffic’ on the sidewalks of NYC is one of my least favorite things and I hate being at loud parties when you can’t talk to the person standing next to you.
When do I feel on top of the world? I love talking with small groups of friends or reading on my own at home. When I first heard that extroverts are energized by being with people and introverts get their energy from being alone, I became a bit confused. I always considered myself an extrovert but as I get to know myself better, I know that I am a mix of both.
When do I need help? I need help when I have too many balls in the air at one time. I tend to say ‘yes’ way more than I should and I always feel grateful that I have friends that come to bail me out at just the right time.
