After reading this post How to interact with the introverted…, I had to ask myself; am I an introvert or an extrovert?
I ask this because there are times where I want to be what is described as the introvert but, when forced to go out, I find myself the extrovert.
Sometimes, I love to be the “life of the party” and truly feed off of other peoples’ energy; defining me as an extrovert.
Other times, I want nothing more than to be alone, and to be left alone, because I feel that I need to withdraw in order to recharge my own energy. When I feel this way, if I were to be confronted with myself as the extrovert, I would see myself as a predator.
Please don’t get me wrong. I am not taking this one post as pure fact, nor am I putting all of my energy into thinking (only) in this way and limiting myself to the black-and-white I seem to portray in this post. This is truly something I have asked myself time and time again when I look into the descriptions of introverts and extroverts. I consider myself very fortunate that I have dear friends who fall into both categories and the introverts always know that they can tell me to leave them alone when they need to be.

Compulsive online shopping
I was so happy to read this blog post today and it inspired me to share my little (guilty) pleasure.
I do my best to stay within my budget, especially during very “tight” circumstances however; one of my favorite things to do is to shop online. Here is my trick:
I go through my favorite websites and fill my shopping cart as if I have an unlimited gift card. This gives me the same rush as if I am actually shopping.
I close the browser & turn off my monitor for the night and go to sleep.
A few days later I get the urge to shop again, yet all of the sites I shop from automatically empty the cart after 24 hours (especially when I choose clearance items) and I don’t remember what I chose.
I know this may not work for everyone, but it works for me.

I wonder how many people notice that a lot of meteorologists can't properly pronounce 'meteorologist'? :P

I must start this post by reminding myself, and anyone who knows me, I do not know how to cook.
Not only am I scared to follow recipes; I have burned a pot while trying to boil water, as well as taking 3 hours to make hot dogs because I filled a
quart-pot for 4 of them.
With that said, I’ve BLOWN MY OWN MIND!
Side note: My deepest apologies. I ate them too fast which is why I do not have any photos to share.
Based on my craving of grilled cheese, I was lacking regular bread, bacon and tomatoes. So, I decided to get creative:
Using my toaster oven, I baked 2 slices of Pepperidge Farm Texas Toast, for
4 minutes, at the recommended temperature of 425º. I took them out and put 2 tablespoons of marinara sauce on each, topped by ½ slice of american and 1
slice of muenster cheese. (I prefer “white american” cheese)
Putting them back into the toaster oven, I broiled them for 2 minutes at 400º until the cheese started to brown.
After allowing them to cool for a minute I inhaled them within 45 seconds.
YUM!!! I *must* make these again (and post pictures of the beautiful deliciousness)

I used to take the term “Soul searching” literally until now.
Just the other day I said aloud:
“I am searching for what it is that will fulfill my soul.”
It is not as easy as it sounds and now I know.
