Getting to know me! Getting to know all about me.

I was tagged by sweet Maria over at Rainy Day Farm. If you haven't seen her farm, errrr blog swing on over. She's always got something going on. She is wonder woman to me! :)

Okay, I'm supposed to talk about 7 personality traits. So sit down, relax, have a cup of tea and let me tell you all about me....

1. Animal Lover-Like Maria I am an extreme animal lover. I connect with animals better than I do humans. Lol! It's true. Maybe because they can't talk. Ha ha! Still there is something about any animal that is around me that feels as though I have been around that animal all my life.

2. Procrastinator - I am a terrible, terrible procrastinator. Well okay, if it's something that's not exciting to do I will procrastinate forever. Cleaning, laundry, getting organized. Can anyone suggest anything to change that because I am in need of help in that department!

3. Fear of being controlled - I have a terrible fear of being controlled. I need room to breathe, room to be me in any relationship and if I can't have that I have these 20 foot walls that go up, made of concrete I'm tellin' ya!

4. Loyal - I am loyal to the end with my friends. Even if I haven't talked to a friend in a very long time or we parted ways on not so good terms (which really is rare) I will be there if they come to me asking for help.

5. I often don't finish what I start. Wait, does that go in the procrastination column? Lol! My attention span is very short. Once I start something and can't finish it the same day, forget it. It will be done in a year. Isn't that terrible? Must be the Gemini in me. :) There's my excuse.

6. Stubborn - Okay, this may sound bad but in certain situations where I have lost trust or have been "burned" in situations I can become VERY stubborn and not give in or even compromise. Now if someone is willing to compromise from the beginning, I can do that but if not, then lookout, the arms are folded and stayin' there.

7. Giving - I am a very giving person. I love volunteering and knowing I am doing good for someone or something else less fortunate than me. It makes me feel so good. :)

Okay, I invite all of you to play along with this tag. I can never choose just a few people. So come on guys, I wanna learn more about your shortcomings or wonderful traits! :)

No wonder you love cats so much sis! Your first 5 traits remind me of a purrrfect cat! lol

TeresaR said...

I think you sound like a wonderful friend to have! Being loyal and giving are a couple of traits I value in my friends.

As for animal lover, I think how one treats animals is indicative of how one treats other human beings, so you are definitely a wonderful human being!
