Just a Few More Hours Til the Weekend...

After reading a post at this gal's blog, I went over to take this free personality test.

Here's what it told me...

Your personality type:

Quietly forceful, original and sensitive. Tend to stick to things until they are done. Extremely intuitive about people and concerned for their feelings. Well-developed value systems which they strictly adhere to. Well-respected for their perserverence in doing the right thing. Likely to be individualistic, rather than leading or following.

Careers that could fit you includes:

Counselors, clergy, missionaries, teachers, medical doctors, dentists, chiropractors, psychologists, psychiatrists, writers, musicians, artists, psychics, photographers, child care workers, education consultants, librarians, marketeers, scientists, social workers.

I have to say that it's pretty spot on in giving a brief description of my personality... but a lot of the potential careers are not ones that have ever appealed to me, except for WRITER. I of course want that for myself someday. Today is not that day, but someday.

In other news, I had a great 5-mile tempo run yesterday. I kept a fairly quick pace (for me) and finished in 43:27. The best I've ever done a 5-mile run in is 42:00 flat, and that was during a 5-mile Thanksgiving Day race last year. Considering it was 90 degrees yesterday, I'd say that I'm running pretty comparably to when I was in great shape last year for that race. I'm looking forward to running it again this year to see if I can break the 42:00 minute time. I DEFINITELY run faster in cooler weather, thus why I run more of the longer races in the winter. :)

I spent the rest of my evening being a total couch potato watching all the premiers on ABC. I certainly enjoyed them, but I felt like they dragged out Grey's a little bit. At the same time, it was neat watching Bernadette Peters on there. I totally saw her in Gypsy on Broadway in NYC back in 2004. Not that I ever saw her up close in NYC, but I did kind of see her "in person" so it was cool to see her on tv. It's the little things...

I'm SO glad it's Friday. It's been kind of a hectic week, and I'm looking forward to heading out of town and hanging out in Memphis. I'm totally hitching a ride out there with my sister's boyfriend who is heading home to spend the weekend with his fam. We haven't really spent that much time together alone, so I'm thinking it'll be fun to get to know him a bit. I'm pretty sure when we get away from the house I'm going to be all like, "So Grant... we have three whole hours together! What do you want to talk about?!" because I'm guessing it'll freak him out a bit, ha. But seriously, I'm thankful to not have to be making the drive all alone. Driving through west Tennessee is pretty boring.

I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend. I'm looking forward to hanging out with the boy and getting a 10-mile run in before coming home to gear up for another high mileage week.

Great job in the run - looks like you are right on track to beat your time in this years race.

I run well in cooler weather too (hence the morning runs lol) but when it gets like below freezing that is hard to run in. I dont even know if it gets that cold where you are!!

Great blog. I followed the link and took the personality test, and it was similar to yours.
Great job on your run!

That's the same answer I got (on the test) if only I could narrow myself to one career...
Have a great weekend in Memphis!

Mine says:
Your personality type:

Practical, traditional and organized. Likely to be athletic. Not interested in theory or abstraction unless they see the practical application. Have clear visions of the way things should be. Loyal and hard-working. Like to be in charge. Exceptionally capable in organizing and running activities. 'Good citizens' who value security and peaceful living.

Careers that could fit you includes:

Military, business administrators, managers, police/detective work, judges, financial officers, teachers, sales representatives, government workers, insurance agents, underwriters, nursing administrators, trade and technical teachers.

Interesting that I got ESTJ, because I have ALWAYS been an F, even though the others have moved around a bit over time. I found the thinking/feeling questions hard to answer though, so maybe I'm borderline...

I agree that Grey's was a bit long for the plotline, though I too loved seeing Bernadette :) I think it will be a good season.
