I took the following Dewey Color Test (thanks, YHL!) today to see if I could learn anything new about myself. Or, possibly to figure out what I want to be when I grow up.
The results were: Creator (1st) and Organizer (2nd).
I think it had something to do with a love of teal (turquoise wasn't on the list, even though it's the Pantone color of 2010 - shame!). And, a deep mistrust of the color mauve. What is mauve, anyway? (Seems like a shifty sort of 80's South-West decor trend; I remember that silhouettes of howling coyotes were involved.)
It looks like my creative, spontaneous nature likes being a teacher because I can be unstructured and flexible in my organization. Which explains why I didn't go to the staff meeting after school today (sorry!).
(Never mind that we have a calendar on the wall where all proposed activities are pre-approved and then written a yellow post-it only with the thick sharpie marker; no post-it, no go.)
Since most of the other proposed jobs are available only to older ladies who volunteer following retirement (museums, libraries and galleries) I'll stick to teaching for now. It's like a traveling circus: same show, but something different happens every day.
(I think I'm the lion trainer.)
