Skype report, my subconscious, jobs and Arnie

Category: Life & Me | 6 Comments | Posted 0:24

OK lemme start with my subconscious... fascinating stuff I tell you! Full of hidden treasures and the like (ahem, right). I did this test, the Inkblot Test at It was fun, and this is what it tells me:

    Clarissa, your subconscious mind is driven most by Imagination
    You have a deep desire to use ideas to change the world around you. This drive influences you far more than you may realize on a conscious level.
    You love to brainstorm and imagine new possibilities. The world is a fuller, richer place because you can contribute new ideas to any experience. Your natural curiosity inspires those around you and encourages them to come up with ideas they wouldn't have discovered without your help.
    Your psyche is very rich; the more you learn about it, the more you will understand who you really are.

Don't I have a fascinating subconscious? I wasn't aware of all of that... ok, maybe that's the general idea of subconscious... but um, yeah. Interestingly, the job test I did at Emode earlier gave me sort of a similar result...

    You're a visionary in many people's eyes able to think outside of the box to come up with your own solutions. You're creative not necessarily in the artistic sense, but because you can expand your mind to do things differently from others.
    It might take a while for colleagues to recognize and reward for your entrepreneurial spirit and abilities. That could be because they envy you, or because they find your ideas slightly rebellious willing to go against the current.
    All in all, you make it hard for people to pigeon hole you. That is why you, more than others, need a job that allows you to play to your strengths, break out of the mold, and truly excel.

Now the funny thing is, I don't really agree with that... usually I'm far too lazy and insecure to do things differently from others. In a job I mean. I prefer playing it safe. So um yeah. Maybe I should overcome my laziness and insecurity and then I would turn into this total genius? *lmao* Also on the subject of jobs, I went to the temping agency yesterday and tho they had nothing for me right then and there, they said it shouldn't be too hard to find sth, mainly on account of my languages. Tho the fact I only have 2 months is a bit limiting... and my red hair may be a problem at banks :))

Right, then the Skype report... as Vega already commented on the previous entry, the sound isn't that great at all, it's kinda the same as Yahoo's Voice Chat. You can't both talk at the same time, which is annoying. Had interesting conversations tho, with Lo, who only giggled (very cutely tho :x) and finds Luxembourgish cool (ugh), with Seb who doesn't have the same accent as me (as Jess said), and who insulted me by saying I sounded German at some point, and for hours and hours with Mir who sounds really American and who told me fascinating stuff about Norwegian, which I might use in my dissertation if I do indeed write that. *lol*

Finally... Arnie. I don't really have anything to say except URGH :-& of course. I didn't really think he would win, but then I stopped following the whole thing shortly after the beginning. And why shouldn't California have an idiot governor if the whole country has a moronic president? :-?


*feels all left out*

Why does no one ever talk to me?

Did these people all have Skype anyway or did they download it coz you told them to?

You don't have a PC and you don't like phones. I'll ring you if you want

And yes, they downloaded it cuz I told them to. They're under my spell (it's a tiny program tho so it's not a big deal. And they all have DSL or cable anyway hehe)

They don't talk to me even when I'm ON the PC!

Mmh, I don't think Arnie is an idiot... not more of an idiot than some other American politicians. However, I think that his wife (as so often) is the brain behind all that governor business. Clarissa, you're obviously biased cos you don't like men with muscles I think that Arnold has gathered quite a bit of life experience and wouldn't make such a bad governor... wouldn't see him as a president though.

Hum. I think he's thick as a plank. I remember a Spiegel interview he did a few years back... awful.
