2008 in Photos

The year’s been light on written stories, but gladfully that means I’ve been out having fun.  Here are some photos of the things I’ve done, the places I’ve been, and the people I’ve seen this year.  I hope for more of the same in 2009 and wish you equal adventure.

Mother-Daughter Dialogue (Translated from Spanish)

Mother-Daughter Dialogue (Translated from Spanish)

The L.A. area had an earthquake on Friday.  I felt it.  My mom didn’t.  Our exchange about it amused me.

Me:  Hey mom, there’s an earthquake happening.

Me: Mom! Mom! Can you hear me? Earthquake!

Mom: Don’t yell.  I knew there was an earthquake.

Me: Well, at least answer.  Did you feel it?

Mom: No, I heard a dog bark, then I got really hot, so I knew there was an earthquake.

Me: So, hot flashes predict an earthquake?

Mom: Guess so. 

This Writer’s Personality

This Writer’s Personality

This website purports to analyze your blog’s personality.  It concluded that sonmislocuras.com is part of the ESFP (Extrovert-Sensing-Feeling-Perceiving) group.  Also known as “the performers,” this group is described as:

The entertaining and friendly type. They are especially attuned to pleasure and beauty and like to fill their surroundings with soft fabrics, bright colors and sweet smells. They live in the present moment and don’t like to plan ahead – they are always in risk of exhausting themselves.

They enjoy work that makes them able to help other people in a concrete and visible way. They tend to avoid conflicts and rarely initiate confrontation – qualities that can make it hard for them in management positions.

It’s close, but not exactly the personality type I’m generally assigned when I take the Myers-Briggs profile.  Most of the time I get assigned to the ESTP (Extrovert-Sensing-Thinking-Perceiving)  group.  They’re known as “the doers” and are characterized as:

The active and playful type. They are especially attuned to people and things around them and often full of energy, talking, joking and engaging in physical outdoor activities.

The Doers are happiest with action-filled work which craves their full attention and focus. They might be very impulsive and more keen on starting something new than following it through. They might have a problem with sitting still or remaining inactive for any period of time.

Guess it just means that while blogging I’m nicer and more focused than I am in real life.
