Man, today was…interesting. When I opened my email in box this morning, I found an email from my AVID teacher about MyRoad. Being the absolutely clueless and curious creature that am, I immediately clicked on the link, followed the directions, and signed up.
Know the first thing I did? I took a personality quiz. Yup.
Know what I got? An Operator/Troubleshooter. My first thought: Wha? Am I going to be a telephone operator when I grow up?
Anyways, here’s what I am supposedly:
“About 2% of MyRoad participants ISTAs are quiet, fun loving, and independently adventurous. As an ISTA you prefer to critically observe events from a distance and only get involved when you choose to do so. You dislike excessive rules and regulations and enjoy the challenge of seeing how far the rules can be stretched. You are bored by routine and may purposely mix things up or do things differently just to make it interesting.
You enjoy sharing activities with your closest friends and family members, but you protect your private time. You like to participate in physical activities, especially team sports, yet you make your best contribution as an individual. You have a clever sense of humor and can be a real practical joker.
You have a remarkable memory for facts and details in the activities and subjects that capture your attention. Your interests lie in how and why things work, and you love to solve technical and mechanical problems. You are challenged by taking things apart to see how they work and then putting them back together again. You are a master at using a variety of tools at school, on the job, and in your personal ventures.
ISTAs are most often found in career fields where they can use their mechanical and technical skills to work on real problems. As an ISTA you will be most satisfied and productive when you’re involved in work that is allows you to work independently on projects and finding solutions to current problems. You are most interested in jobs that allow you to troubleshoot, negotiate and avoid routine.”
Short version: I’m a very lazy person and will think of creative ways to dodge work or make it fun. I’ll also procrastinate on small projects and homework assignments until the last minute because I work better under pressure.
I’m: Outgoing, Practical, Conservative, Abstract, Analytic, Deliberate, Open-Ended, and Casual.
Huh, I’m somewhat an oxymoron (I love that word!)
Apparently only 2% of the people that took the test got the same result…I feel special. Kidding.
This afternoon/evening was fun!
I was out playing some badminton with my friend because our school had the day off. It was hilarious! The wind kept on messing up all our hits so we had to run around the whole field and missed more than half of the time. The butterflies flying everywhere were also a distraction. There were a lot of butterflies! Since this is their mating season, they kept of flying around the grass field. Yeah, there were probably more than 50 of them flying around in a single field! I regret not bringing my net. I spotted a really cute butterfly that was sitting on the grass and proceeded to drag my friend to catch it. She used a tennis racket and a ziplock bag that previously has chips in it to catch the butterfly. We named it “cha lua” (or as my friend called it, cha luu aaaa!) After that, we ran tracks..with a tire lying on the grass. Then we saw a really huge yellow butterfly, E tried to do some cartwheels but failed, a baby had fun squishing a ladybug, I found out that I can throw a tennis ball really far, and I got my shoes all muddy. Wheee. Man all of that was tiring but worth it! I’m going to bring my net this week to catch butterflies for my bio project. Catching butterflies is difficult, I learned that the hard way. Hopefully I catch at least one on Saturday or Sunday.
