Cee’s Share Your World 2013: Week 35 ~

Have you ever bungee jumped?  If you haven’t, would you want to?  Never, ever!  I have a huge fear of heights, and just as much a fear of falling.  I might to into cardiac arrest just thinking about it!

 

For your computer Mac or Windows based computer?  Desktop, laptop, Pad or other?
I’ve never experienced anything but Windows.  I prefer a desktop, but would like to try an IPad for fun/personal use.

If you were instantly able to play one musical instrument perfectly that you never have played before, what would it be?
Definitely the piano.  I’ve always wanted to play, and actually purchased one about 8 years ago.  Somehow I thought that just because I’d purchased one, I’d be able to sit down and just magically play it.  Imagine my surprise when lessons were discussed.  Yeah, well, I sold the piano.  It DID look nice in my livingroom for about 5 years, though.

 

Describe yourself in at least four uplifting words.  Honest, empathetic, loving, trustworthy.

Thanks, Cee!  How about a picture from my way to work this morning? (unretouched and taken with my smartphone.

Wild mushrooms from Jordan, NY!  Or are they toadstools?  What's the difference?  They're interesting!

Cee’s Share Your World 2013: Week 9 ~

Cee’s questions for this week are:

How do you write: computer, longhand or other?   In today’s world, I do most of my writing by computer ~ but I prefer to write longhand and do so every chance I get.  I have been told I have wonderful handwriting.  Indeed, I began “practicing” my handwriting in 6th grade, and it does tend to be impressive.  (pats self on back!) 

Irregardless of your physical fitness, coordination or agility:  If you could play any sport professionally what would it be?  Or if you can’t picture yourself playing sports, what is your favorite sport?  Any sport related to horseback riding.  I used to ride when I was in school, and owned horses.  They are an amazing animal, and I bonded with mine as many do with dogs and cats.  I think I’d like to ride in the Olympics, or any type of show jumping.

If happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich?   Quilting is my current love.  Not only does it allow me to release my creativity in endless ways, but also to make others happy with my creations.  What could be better than that?

What subject was your favorite in all of your schooling? Why?  Well, my entire high school years were devoted to “business”, as I knew exactly what I wanted to do when I graduated.  All of the many classes I took in relation to my degree are my favorites ~ I cannot pick just one, as they encompassed each other.  Typing and Shorthand were my absolute favorites.  I also had courses like Accounting, Business Math, Economics, Office Procedures and others.  One other “honorable mention” I want to put out there, because I’ve seen a couple other bloggers mention it, is that I loved English ~ because I am a grammar, spelling, punctuation obesessive/compulsive.

P.S ~ After almost 35 years of being out of school, I can still take Shorthand at about 120 wpm, and type around 130 wpm.  I do have occasion to use my Shorthand, and I type verbatim business meetings on a regular basis and then transcribe them.  Now THAT’s fast!

 

Thanks Cee!
