Today I'm linking up with the Me, Myself, and I Linky Partay :)
Me, as I write this.
Yes, I am totally lying in bed on my belly.
I'm not a desktop kind of girl.
And it's 3:40am
Autumn. I actually didn't realize that until I graduated college. Fall had always meant the end of vacation and the start of school and I was too busy to notice its beauty. But now I am delighted by fall. The wonderful fall smell. The leaves. The invigorating snap to the air, without being too cold. And most of all, the sky.
It's that incredible blue. Ahhhhhh, I love that blue.
2. Talk about a moment that changed your life.
It's hard to think of a "moment" because most of my changes happened as seasons... or are blurry from trauma.
But, oh, I know! When I was laid-off from my first job after college.
It was my birthday. Four other people were also let go. I could tell my supervisor felt awful with it being my birthday, but it was from her bosses.
But what was amazing was God had prepared me. See, I had had this "I'm not supposed to be here anymore" feeling for weeks, but it was a project to project commitment job and I'd committed to it. And God wants us to honor commitments, so I felt stuck. So God, He made downsizing my birthday gift. I felt joy. Don't believe me? I posted about it the next day.
If I'd kept that job, well, my life would probably been different. It started 11 months of unemployment. But... I know God was there in my lay-off, so I don't look back with sorrow.
3. If you could be any crayola crayon color, what would you be and why?
Cerulean. It was always my favorite Crayola.
Superpower: Hmm. As adolescent I'd have said invisibility. And I've dreamed of teleportation, especially since I could be with Ryan without worrying about money or paperwork...
But what I think I'd really like is the ability to project the emotion of my choice, so by entering a room I could bring peace and joy and love to everyone. And I'd also want part of it to be control over my own emotion. So I don't spew rage or something without meaning too. It'd be an intentional power.
Name: Hmm... The Beam? Because I'd beam emotion at people. Okay, that's lame. Suggestions?
Sidekick: Hmm... maybe a cop. Like I could walk into a robbery, calm down the robber with beams of calmness and compassion and repentence. And the cop could arrest them.
5. If you had all the money in the world and could only shop at 3 stores, where would you shop?
Hmmm... well I don't know what stores they have in India, and since I'm moving there soon it'd suck to pick American stores and not be able to buy anything in India!
