Inside the room of my soul... apparently

What Your Soul Really Looks Like

You are quite expressive and thoughtful. You see the world in a way that others are blind to.

You are a grounded person, but you also leave room for imagination and dreams. You feet may be on the ground, but you're head is in the clouds.

You see yourself with pretty objective eyes. How you view yourself is almost exactly how other people view you.

Your near future is likely to be filled with great successes and accomplishments. You just need to figure out how to get there.

For you, falling in love is all about the adventure and uncertainty. You can only fall in love with someone who keeps you guessing.
Inside the Room of Your Soul

I found this quick quiz on blog things as I didn't know what to post about. It is not a bad summation of aspects of me actually :-) A grounded dreamer - that's me! The questions were all about walking into a room and what was in it - symbols of aspects of the soul I suspect which is interesting. I am tempted to go back and play just to work out what the rest of the symbolism means. Alternatively how about sharing your insights with me if you take the quiz?

My insurance wrangle goes on. I have yet to sort out the house key side of things but I have been awarded some compensation from my car insurance (home and car are with the same company).

Meanwhile I am up to my ears in study. I have a 4000 word essay to get done by the end of the month on top of work etc. I am still in the throes of making notes after the thieves took my books, laptop and back-up memory stick. So... please understand if I don't visit you as much as I would like to. I will post when I can so do pop by as I would love to hear from you and need all the positive thoughts you can spare! I am panicking people - however the quiz says that my near future is filled with great accomplishments (phew), I just have to figure how to get there (darn). Surely a pop quiz can't be clairvoyant...can it???

Once the deadline has passed I can hopefully get a little back to normal (insurance pending) and hopefully get out and about again with my camera which I miss. Then I will have some pics to share at last :-)

Just popped in from Michele's to say sleep well. Hope things are getting easier and don't panic about your work. Give yourself some real relaxing time and then tackle what you have to. All will be well.

The room of my soul is the same as yours.....LOL!

first of all--illegitimum non carborundum!---don't let the b**t**ds get you down! then-- remember the #1 rule of writing academic eces (th or f)--- never say in 2 words what you can say in 10! Acquire a gram scale discarded by a drug dealer who has been sent off to gaol. Place it next to your printer, so you can determine at a glance how much more weighty material is needed to complete your project.
My good thoughts are with you all the way. I not only slaved over my own papers, but had a cottage industry going (lol)"editing" others (to suport my film-making habit, back in the days before video).
You've got a computer--you don' want to know how it was way back when!

Never get stressed out; it isn't worth the effort.

Michele sent me here.

Moogie said...

I think I may just need to try this one out. :) I'm sorry about all that you are going through and it seems as though you've got quite a bit on your plate. Hang in there, you can do it. Soon your deadlines will be behind you and then you can, perhaps, relax just a bit.

Do what you must and remember that true friends wait for you. Everyone's life has challenges which take us away from the things we want to do but that makes getting back to them even more enjoyable! We will come visit just to see the lovely picture in your header.

Roxie, Sammy & Andy

I have the utmost confidence in your future accomplishments :-)

Michele sent me to see how your essay is coming along [bg]

Mr. Althouse said...

A year from now, this will be nothing but an speed bump, although right now I'm sure it looks like Mt. Everest. Here from Michele's today, but I like visiting here anyway,


Mr. Althouse said...

Of course it's ok, I've added you as well.

The room of my souls was close to yoyrs but I had a hard time answering a few od those questions...LOL...Because, in two cases I could have answered three differewnt ways...I guess my soul is in conflict!

I wish you ALL the best my dear...and may the obstacles in your path dissolve very quickly...Much good luck on your 4000 words!

Hey Bob-Kat,

I hope things start to look up for you soon, I'm sure they will ;)

The picture below is awesome ;)

Here today from Michele's and Hiya!

The insurance and repairs does seem to drag on and the only approach is to tough it out. When someone knocked down part of a garden wall with a car which skidded on some snow, it still took me ages to get it all resolved. The car driver was back in business in a couple of weeks, but the wall took about three months to get fixed. It was all about quotes and inspections an so forth. I thought the whole thing was pretty straightforward, but the insurance company still insisted on sending someone around to have a look. If they had been quicker, they would have seen the snow tranks leading directly into the wall, but as it was, everything had melted before they even visted.

I'm sure you'll do fine with your revised 4000 words and I wish you every success.

salvador Dali, right?

i never was good in school, but I love art, and ducks.

mar said...

It seems like Dali's work but it looks different...Saw the original at the museum in Figueres some years ago.
You'll do fine, you are top!

monique said...

good luck with things!

Irish Church Lady :) said...

Here are "all the positive thoughts I can spare" and an Irish Prayer ...

May God give you...
For every storm, a rainbow,
For every tear, a smile,
For every care, a promise,
And a blessing in each trial.
For every problem life sends,
A faithful friend to share,
For every sigh, a sweet song,
And an answer for each prayer.

Found especially for you with all the best intentions!

*Warm hugs*

bobkat I'm glad you have begun to get compensation. Even if it is just a "part" of what you're looking for in the way of help.

Hang in there!

I'm looking forward to when life will behave and allow you to once again walk the lands with your camera in tow.

srp said...

Good luck with all the school work. My daughter said that these next few weeks will be the most stressful of the year. I hope your insurance ordeal will soon sort itself out. Feeling comfortable and safe in your home and car will work wonders, I'm sure.

Ps said...

Good luck with your essay! I did that soul quiz and was fascinated. It really pegged me. Actually made me feel a little better about myself.

Grounded Dreamer. Me too.

"For you, love is all about caring and comfort. You couldn't fall in love with someone you didn't trust."
This was the most flattering part!
Keep plugging away, just think, in two weeks you'll be done your paper and you'll be breathing better.

Ps said...

mine too is exactly the same as yours!!!
