My brother says I destroy boys when I break up with them. I don’t think that’s true. I just break up with them when I realize how destroyed they already are; and I don’t want to be dragged down with them. His line graphs are pretty funny, though.
Snaps for me! More poetry-reading. I wrote all of this garbage I’m posting while I was still a janitor. This is what I would sit and do on my breaks. And now that I have you trapped here on my Tumblr, you have to suffer through them. You poor devil, you.
I would do anything for you.
I’d quit my bad habits, And always play fair, I would drop all of my plans, If you needed me there.
Every favor you did for me, I would repay with two. I would stay until the sun came up, I would always see you through.
I’d draw your bath when you feel dry, I would always arrive on time. I’d never tell a lie again, Just because you’re mine.
And should we ever disagree, It will never last too long. I will always apologize, When I’ve done something wrong.
But none of it makes a difference, Because there is something I can’t do. You’ll never know the lengths I’d go, Because I’ll never be the first to move.
Because I don’t post enough garbage anyway. Here is my personality, pretty accurately explained! I forget about the ENTP profile, and then I’ll randomly come across it again, and marvel about its accuracy for a little while.
ENTPs are known for their quest of the novel and complex. They have faith in their ability to improvise and to overcome any challenges that they face. They are highly independent, and value adaptability and innovation. They may be several steps ahead of others in encouraging and valuing change. They hate uninspired routine and resist hierarchical and bureaucratic structures that are not functional. They need freedom for action.
ENTPs are lively children who question established truths and norms, dream and scheme, and develop unusual ways of doing traditional childhood things. The ENTP child is oriented toward doing the unique, which may mean taking risks and outwitting parental, school, and societal authority. They enjoy creating projects and following interests that are unusual and different.
ENTP children enjoy inventing new toys, dances, and languages. Because they are outgoing in their personality style, they often engage other children in their projects and assign them particular roles to play. ENTPs rarely accept things just as they are. They like to test or explore to see new meanings and relationships. When things do not go as they want, they use their ingenuity and cleverness to bring people and situations around to their point of view.
As young adults, when ENTPs choose a career for themselves, they tend to set flexible goals that allow them to incorporate new information and accommodate to new circumstances when they come along. It is hard for ENTPs not to be able to explore the road not taken. Their byword is keep your options open. Sometimes this flexibility can look like indecision to outsiders.
As adults, ENTPs take advantage of opportunities. Because of their ability to see relationships and connections between seemingly unrelated things, they are able to realize the potential in many things. When they see an opportunity that others have missed, they set action-oriented strategies that allow them the greatest flexibility to achieve the results they want. The worst job for them is working for someone who demands considerable rule following or tries too often to tell or order, rather than make suggestions to the ENTP. Throughout their careers, ENTPs want their work to be enjoyable, with interesting possibilities for applications. Additionally, having their work widely acclaimed and accepted as a unique contribution would be highly gratifying for ENTPs. They also weave in vacations whenever possible and want a flexible work schedule.
Learning and Working
ENTPs are relentless learners. When the subject matter interests them, they are able to find meaning in whatever they are studying. Knowledge is important to them, but they may not feel the need to show this to their teachers and therefore may be somewhat lackadaisical about assignments and tests.
ENTPs use their enthusiasm and energy to get others involved in their learning. They learn through give-and-take discussions and by questioning and challenging others. They are quick, verbal, and logical, preferring to use their skills in interactions with others. ENTPs look at the logical foundations in others’ thinking and build on them to develop their own conceptual systems. They want to be taught concepts rather then facts. Models are important to them. They typically absorb their teacher’s material and present it in a framework that ties all of the elements together.
They like to challenge their teachers and classmates and enjoy competitive learning tasks through which they can show their conceptual versatility. They may also enjoy independent study in which they can pursue and area of interest.
ENTPs contribute an innovative, versatile, and enterprising approach to work. They view limitations as challenges to be overcome and look for new ways to do things. They need to find a niche for themselves in order to be free to maneuver. They prefer the start-up phase of a project rather than the followthrough or maintenance phase. Once the project is designed, they prefer to turn it over to someone else. They take initiative and inspire others toward greater accomplishments and challenges.
ENTPs usually find work that involves an analytical, entrepreneurial, and creative focus. They tend to tolerate ambiguity well. They want to be in situations in which they can take intellectual risks and meet challenges. To perform in their best fashion, they prefer flexibility and versatility. While they like status and titles, they ultimately want to be judged on their innovative accomplishments. They take advantage of changing circumstances and work those circumstances into their plans. As a result, they function effectively in chaotic times.
Some occupations seem to be more appealing to ENTPs: actor, chemical engineer, computer analyst, credit investigator, journalist, marketeer, photographer, psychiatrist, public relations worker, sales agent, and other occupations that allow them to be innovative.
For the ENTP, falling in love occurs when they feel that there is a good fit with the other person. Often within the first meeting, ENTPs will know whether the relationship has any real potential. ENTPs may find it difficult to commit to anyone until the right person comes along. During this period, ENTPs explore the closeness until they can be certain that they have looked at all of the possibilities. Because of this, they are not likely to settle down early. When they do become involved in a relationship, they generally want to maintain as much independence and freedom as their loved one can tolerate. Their mates may need to have high self-esteem and to be independent themselves in order to accept the ENTP need for freedom and novelty.
For ENTPs, falling out of love, which may not always occur, results when their vision of the relationship does not square with reality. Sometimes they will select someone who offers stability and comfort and ENTPs later will become bored with the stability. When scorned, ENTPs use their powerful and broadreaching analysis to explain the reasons why the relationship was not good in the first place; additionally, they may become competitive with their former partner and work hard to win. ENTPs do not like to lose at anything they undertake.
My time at MJC absolutely flies by. I don’t even know where the time goes. It doesn’t feel like a job; I’m just going in and hanging out with the guys while doing things I enjoy. It feels amazing to finally get paid for something like that. Most people are miserable with their jobs, so I feel especially lucky.
This is how work SHOULD feel. Your job is a big chunk of your life. The more it feels like playtime, the better.
I complain about GA a lot. It isn’t my dream job and the drive is frustrating, but I’m getting used to it (as long as my car survives!) And I love all of the people who I work night shift with. They’re fantastic people. The work isn’t creative, but I have MJC now to feed that beast, and it keeps me brushed up in InDesign. I love that. And now that I’m back at MJC, I can stay brushed up in Photoshop and Illustrator too.
It is very easy to lose the training we received if you don’t use it. I worry for those who I graduated with who aren’t trying to find something. What an epic waste of money it would be to pay so much for the training and forget all of it. It makes me want to find everyone jobs xD
And now that I ranted about working, it’s actually time for me to start! Huzzah.
I was tagged in this on Facebook. Since I’m new to Tumblr, here is my list of 50 random things, facts, habits, or goals about me. I don’t think I can tag people, so I won’t. If you want to do it, though, I will read it! OR WILL I.
If you manage to read all of this, you are extremely diligent.
1. I’m very blunt and honest with people. I consider myself a very nice and caring person, but I will tell you the things you don’t want to hear.
2. I am atheist. I still have a moral code, but I make my decision of what’s right and wrong based on personal experiences instead of faith. I have very little patience for religion but I’m not completely against it; it’s what some people need in order to be happy and feel good about themselves. Just don’t end up on fstdt.com, and I can get along with you.
3. My favorite animals: Octopi, Dogs, Giraffes, Kangaroos, Elephants, Horses and Rats. Not necessarily in that order, but it’s close.
4. My favorite jewelry to wear is rings.
5. I enjoy a good singing voice more than any talent you could have with an instrument.
6. I genuinely like Lady Gaga. She earns everything she’s gotten, and I have to admit, I enjoy her music. She’s exactly what Pop needed.
7. Omelets make me feel sick to my stomach. I love eggs, but prepare it as an omelet and I want to vomit.
8. Root Beer is the most disgusting drink in the universe. I can’t drink it.
9. I used to hate the color purple. It’s grown on me a lot this year, though.
10. If I’m not busy, I’m unbelievably lazy and unproductive. Which is why I prefer to have two jobs at a time. I’m just a more interesting person when I have a schedule to keep and people depending on me to keep it.
11. I’m very impatient. YEAH everyone says that, but I genuinely hate to wait. If I have to wait too long for something, I just stop wanting it altogether. Growing up poor taught me that I can get things by actually going after them, not waiting for them. And if I have to wait for it, I don’t need it that badly to begin with.
12. I’m extremely impulsive. This may be because of how impatient I am. Some of the most fun I’ve had has been done on a whim.
13. I love to dress up. Costumes, formal wear, anything. Dressing differently than the standard humdrum t-shirt and jeans makes me feel excited.
14. I know for a fact that I want to be a mom (eventually). I don’t want to just be a mom, I want to be THE BEST MOM EVER (this is not the same as “cool mom”). I think I have it in my head that I want to give my children a childhood that I wish I’d had. And one day, I will. And they will grow up to cure cancer and lead the country. Just you wait and see.
15. Money can’t buy happiness, but it sure does keep a lot of unnecessary stress out of your life.
16. I think the abstinence-until-married moral code is garbage. I won’t get into it. I just think it’s one of the silliest “rules” ever created. I feel bad for those people.
17. I got bit in the face by a Cocker Spaniel once. It was the first and only time I’ve ever needed to go to the hospital. I hate Cocker Spaniels for other reasons, but I think that sparked it.
18. Tim Burton has always been my favorite director. I even painted him. But Quentin Tarantino is now tied with him. I want to paint him, too. Those two men are fantastic.
19. I’m tired of the Mac/PC bullshit. Nobody does that over cars or phones (or carphones). Get over it, buy the computer you prefer and stop giving a shit about what other people have.
20. I’m extremely independent. I like to achieve things on my own because I don’t like owing anyone my gratitude. But when I DO owe someone gratitude, I don’t blow that off. It’s extremely special to me when someone goes out of their way for me, in any way.
21. It’s really hard for me to see my parents cry. I don’t care how close we are or aren’t, if I see one of them crying, it makes me want to cry, too.
22. …and I rarely cry.
23. I’m a thrill-seeker. If there’s a chance I’ll be scared, I’ll probably do it. I like the feeling of being scared. People who live without any fear at all are boring.
24. I have a male-dominant brain. I like doing my fair share of girly stuff and I even like a few “chick flicks”, but you’ll never see me putting little hearts all over my statuses (unless I’m making fun of something), you’ll never see me call someone (or enjoy being called) “Baby”, and I can’t stand Valentine’s Day. I enjoy celebrating it, because I’m a female and enjoy romance, but I hate the gifts and the corniness of Valentine’s day. It is never ACTUALLY romantic for me. I don’t want any of those goofy and obnoxious gifts that any schmoe can pick up at the local Wal-Mart. What the fuck am I going to do with that $50 giant gorilla? Oh, and I guess you can call my hatred of Twilight as a masculine feature. Because I really hate Twilight.
25. I truly love sleeping next to someone. It’s a tragedy, though, because I don’t think anyone actually enjoys sleeping next to me. I’m violent. xD
26. Wherever I go, I WILL have fun there. You can put me in a cave with a candle and I’ll somehow find a way to enjoy myself. I don’t see a point in not at least trying.
27. I can’t stand people who complain all of the time. If you’re always whining about something, you’re doing something wrong, not the thing or person you’re complaining about. Fix yourself.
28. If I never had to drive in snow again, I would probably explode from happiness.
29. I’m extremely social. I love making new friends.
30. I haven’t been broken up with since 9th grade. I’m not proud of it, it’s actually kind of crappy. And so far, I haven’t dated anyone twice. Usually by the time I’m breaking up with you, I’ve already given it so much thought and time to get better, that I am just thoroughly and 100% ready to move on.
31. I love pressing on things with my fingertips. It just feels nice to me. xD
32. Most of the bands that I consider to be my “favorite” all have lyrics that I think are profound and/or that I can relate to. Good lyrics rule.
33. I’m one of the goofiest, most obscure senses of humor you’ll meet. I will probably make fun of you at some point. But I sober up quickly if the occasion calls for it.
34. I’m not easy to offend.
35. I think Harry Potter will always be my favorite book, no matter how old I am.
36. I’m proud to say that I genuinely love what I went to school for, and I see myself sticking with it for the rest of my life if I can.
37. I’m extremely open, honest and caring about people I’m close with. I am very impatient with those who don’t return it. Because I’m not patient (see how I’m tying it all in?!)
38. I have only been to two funerals in my life, and neither of them were people who were related to me.
39. I like a challenge. Challenge me or I’ll be very bored.
40. I think the most tragic thing in my life right now is being able to attract nearly every person I come into contact with, except for the person I actually want. Why does it work that way?
41. I really do like to party. But I don’t really like getting “wasted” anymore. Especially when I go out to the bars; I will always offer to DD because I never want to embarrass myself in public. xD I’m still trying to find that perfect fun area between sober and sloppy.
42. I am an ENTP. It’s really very accurate.
43. I rarely say ‘dude’, and when I do, I feel weird about it. Unless of course I’m saying it jokingly.
44. I love theatre. Very much. I would be going to plays constantly if I could afford it/had people to watch them with.
45. I love to argue and debate.
46. I am very competitive. If I know I can win something, I go all out to try and win. I like to win. It’s awesome.
47. I really don’t care for anime.
48. I don’t play video games, but I love to watch people play through them. iSuck.
49. I love having my hair played with and slightly tugged on. It gives me chills.
50. I hate when someone is texting me, and they say shit that is really hard to respond to. People who can’t hold a conversation up make me want to die.
This is my first Tumblr post. This site looks pretty cool, and I’m a social media junkie, so I felt like creating one. EVERYONE ELSE IS DOING IT! I don’t know what I’m going to post here. Maybe a little bit of everything, since that’s what the site is for. I guess it’s just impossible to know for sure, folks!
