Liquid Sunshine Blog Party

سلام لكم في هذا اليوم

Liquid Sunshine @ HorseFeathers
I'm joining in. Why? Well, I really want a certain brown purse. Or a pretty piece of jewelry. Hence, I'm joining. Oh, and I like to do quizzes. Yet another reason. And sunshine is awesome. So, without further ado:
Favorite season, and why?

Probably spring. I don't know why. Maybe because it's such a growing sort of season. The world is coming alive.

How would you describe your personal style?

I don't know that I really have one. I usually wear jeans and t-shirts. Sometimes I'll slip on a chitenge over my jeans if they're dirty, but that's about it.

What's one weird thing you can do? (The stranger the better!

I whisper when I read. Like, literally, whisper out loud along with what I'm reading. It drives my little sister crazy. v.v

Rain or shine?

In between. I like nice, cloudy, cool days where the sun just sometimes peeps out from behind a cloud, and occasionally a mist will come up. I'm weird, what can I say?

Confession time... what's a flaw of yours?

A propensity to not listen to advice or concerns from others. Yes, I am quite guilty of that, particularly when those concerns touch upon other failures of mine.

Favorite music?

I like hymns and classical, but I'm also quite a fan of contemporary Christian.

Have you ever made a decision you instantly regretted? What was it?

I can't think of anything right off the top of my head. I'm sure there's something, and if it were 3am, I could tell you a million things. But as it is currently 1 in the afternoon, my brain won't let me access those memories. And I'm okay with that.

Who do you admire/look up to?

Lots of people. Some of them dead, some of them living. One of my heroes is Gladys Aylward. She was a missionary to China in the early 1900's. She was told by a missions organization when she was in her mid-20s that she was "too old" to learn Mandarin. She went on to become the first foreigner to become a Chinese citizen.

You've just won an unlimited lifetime supply of... what?

Books. And airline fares, so that I can go places without having to raise so much money to go on missions trips. XD

If you were an animal, what would you be?

Probably a bird of some type.

If you knew you were going to die in a year, what would you do?

Oh my. I'd probably make the rounds of restricted-access nations, not caring what happened to me, because I was going to die anyway. And I'd tell as many people as possible about Jesus.

You are a now a gazillionaire... where do you go to spend your money?

A gazillion? Well, most of it would probably either go to current missionaries on the field, or go to finance my future missions trips. (What were you saying about needing a job, mom?) Then I'd by books. And a new house for my family - a huge house, a millionaire's house, with many bedrooms and bathrooms - and then I'd buy more books. And yeah. Then I'd create scholarships for kids to go to CYIA, and I'd end world hunger, and...

Classical music: love it or hate it?

Love it sometimes. Sometimes I can't stand it. It depends on what kind of classical, too - fast, slow, mournful, whatever.


Fear itself. And roaches.

Hop on a plane and go live somewhere for a year... where is it, and why?

I'd probably be more likely to go do the World Race than go live in one place. But if I had to choose one place...China, or Thailand.

Are you an extrovert or an introvert?

It depends on where I am and who I'm with.

Would you/do you perform on stage?

Hahaha...I'm not an actress. At all. In no conceivable universe could I be an actress.

I totally agree about roaches. Ew!

I'd love to be a bird, too. I've always harbored a wish to fly... And I agree about the introvert/extrovert. :)

So, I know this comment is supposed to be in response to your post, but I really just want to say that I love your blog. I have to admit it was not was I was expecting from the title, but I was delightfully surprised :)

My sister (once) had a blog on Xanga (which is much eclipsed by blogger, btdubs), which she called "Proverbs 31 Trainee." Hahah, but I like obscure Bible references :)
