Q is for ____________

August 20th, 2011

QUIRKY – this work describes me well, I’m definitely very quirky. I’m odd, different, distinct, and unique.

QUESTIONING – I like to question how things are make, how to do thing, why things happen. This keeps me learning new things, and delving into new areas. It keeps me from becoming complacent on political issues and it keeps my mind active and healthy.

QUICK – I’m very proficient at a lot of things and I can get them done quickly. This is one reason I can accomplish a lot in my day. As a result I can be quite impatient with myself if I don’t know how to do something or with others when they don’t do things as quickly as I’d like them to.

QUIET – for the most part. Although I can be loud at times. I also really appreciate quiet and lack of noise.

QUOTES – I love quotes, which is why we have Sunday quotes here on the blog. When I read I always have a notebook or my computer handy so I can copy down quotes. I have quotes written on note cards on my fridge and by my desk.

What words/phrases describe you that start with a Q?

    Its funny.. most of the time.. most of the definitions you use are also ones I would use to describe myself. Guess thats why I enjoy your blog so much.. You feel very much like a kindred spirit..

    Quirky, quick (good & bad. ;) ) lover of quiet.. questioning & lover of quotes. 9 times out of 10 quotes are all I post on Facebook.. Definitely one of my favorite things in life..
