Week 7 in my part of the world annoys us with boring grey, somewhat wet and somewhat cold days. These are somewhat days, nothing is defined, it’s as if the weather is undecided. “Do I want to be winter after all? Should I proceed with spring? Winter, spring, winter, spring? Maybe I just sit it out. Yaaaawn…”
A good thing that there are challenges that stir things up. Away with the yawn, onwards with the fun. Here is Cee’s Share Your World challenge .
What are you a “natural” at doing?
I understand being a “natural” as something that can be learned easily but still needs study and work to be refined. I’d say I’m an absolute natural at reading. I taught that to myself at age 5 and never stopped reading since. Another thing I’m really good at is making compost, improving garden soil, and growing tomatoes. I have a bit of a green thumb, but that is a learned achievement. The most surprising ‘natural’ achievement for me is working with computers. They really seem to like me. I work in IT support (nothing too complicated), and I’m one of these annoying people who only seem to have to look at it to make it work again. I can’t program well , but computering still makes me proud-ish. For the longest time I thought I was too stupid for computers. But then, when I worked on my thesis, I needed statistics and found programming the t-test into my pocket calculater too tiresome. That’s when my love-affair with computers began. I’m too old to have grown up or grown naturally into computering, so for me this was a big deal.
Would you prefer a one floor house or multiple levels?
As long as there’s enough room, a garden, and a basement I don’t really care. I’m getting older so one floor would certainly be the easier option for the future.
What was your favorite subject in school?
Complete this sentence: If only the rain..
came when and where it is needed.
