Exploring Your Vision

Weird name, huh? Well, I have an Introduction to Art class here at Gateway and we recently had to do a collage. The teacher says that whatever we put on it, this collage is supposed to draw that towards us. I know it sounds weird, but the collage was fun. If you know me like my family does, you can probably imagine that there were quite a few pics here and there of The Rolling Stones and The Beatles.  And there eneded up being almost a million pictures of all things 1960s, and apparently in the eyes of the teacher, with the pictures of Jet Li and Lucy Liu I put on there, I desire strength, and also freedom because I happened to have mentioned that my dad and sister aren't exactly the biggest fans of The Beatles, sometimes known as the Fab Four or The Rolling Stones. And along with other pictures, I definitely ended up putting at least 2 or 3 pictures of Mick Jagger on it, 2 when he was younger, 1of him from 2006 on stage, sorry but this guy totally kicks butt on stage compared to Roger Daltrey of The Who. Nothing against any possible fans of The Who out there, but Mick Jagger doesn't do anything dangerous compared to Roger swinging his mic stand around Tarzan-style. Any way, I put all kinds of stuff on it, and prior to this we ahd to do a worksheet to help us figure out what was going on it, me being the moron I sometimes am, the posterboard that was needed for it, I brought the wrong size and another girl had to give me a piece, it was bright green, love that color. Anyway, here are some of the questions that were asked on that worksheet:

My favorite childhood game was: Candyland, Trouble, Chutes and Ladders
My favorite childhood toy was: Legos(still love Legos, I mean, who doesn't?), Barbie
If I had the perfect childhood, I would now: be no different, I'd probably be the same as I am now.
My favorite thing to read is: The Lovely Bones, Uncle Tom's Cabin, Night, All the Alex Cross stories
The music that makes me most happy is: The Rolling Stones, Aerosmith, The Beatles, Shakira, Enrique Iglesias, Paul McCartney
My favorite movie of all time is: Kiss of the Dragon, Freejack, Ned Kelly, Rocky IV, The Full Monty
My favorite costume was: Geisha Girl. Last year Geisha Girl was my Halloween costume. I didn't go trick or treating, way too old, I just love the thrill of dressing up. I live for it!
If I could travel anywhere, it would be to: China, Japan, England, Italy, Germany, Russia, Australia
If I could live anywhere, it would be: Australia, England, China, Japan, Italy
Sometimes I'm afraid that if I pursue exactly what I want: I'd get made fun of. I'd be the only one with goals like that, and there'd be obstacles in my way.
If I had been encouraged to follow my dreams, I would: Probably have followed them, but like all things, there would be obstacles in the way
While I love to learn foreign languages, I rarely find the time to do it
My ideal of home is:
  • London, England: it's culturally interesting, the only obstacle I'd face is the currency issue, dollars aren't the currency in England like it is here in the US, quid, pounds, etc is in England. But I'd have a whole bunch of fun learning how to adjust.
  • Australia: It would have to be 1 of 3 places along the coast: Brisbane, Melbourne or Sydney.The reason I'd love to live here is because it has this Wild West feel to, it feels far away and exotic, but feels like a good place to live
  • China(Beijing, Hong Kong): The culture is so endlessly fascinating to me, the history, customs, traditions, etc, are all so interesting to me.
  • Japan(Tokyo, Okinawa, Osaka, Kyoto): The reason is the same as China. Japanese history, customs, traditions, etc are so interestnig to me.
  • Italy(Rome,Venice, Naples, Palermo): The countryside is so beautiful and Italy is an overall beautiful place. Anywhere in Italy is good for me.
My ideal of a partner is: If partner means someone you date, my ideal of a partner would be a guy who is nice, caring, considerate of others, treats people nice, has a romantic side, and a funny side, can definitely cook, with a taste for adventure, loves to have fun. Looks don't matter!

  1. Hi dear,

    What an interesting, fun-filled glimpse into more about the person behind this neat blog! :)

    Thank you for your comment on today's Vintage 365 Post over at Chronically Vintage. You're very close indeed, that wonderful Montgomery Ward catalog page is from 1939.

    Wishing you a marvelous Thursday,

  2. Wow, thats a lot of info - must return to read it when my eyes will stay open. Must say though, you seem to be missing Tasmania as an awesome place to visit. We are the island state at the bottom of Australia and it is amazing, you'd love it - go on, google it! :)
