Serena Joy said...

That's an interesting meme you picked for today, and calls for some insightful answers. Which means I'm going to have to come back to it later. I love your and everyone else's answers. You do like to make people think.:)

SignGurl said...

1) Did you graduate from college? No

2) Is your current occupation, what your field of expertise was?No, my field was psychology, not signology

As a child, my parents' divorce affected me greatly. As an adult, I'd have to include having gastric bypass surgery to that list.

5) The "Great Love of your Life"...?

I'll take the 5th with Lime.

tsduff said...

1) Did you graduate from college?

no, but close :)

2) Is your current occupation,
that your field of expertise was?

no... I wanted to be an ornithologist - but kids and family got in the way. (baby birds of a different sort :)

3) Are you happy with your career choice?

I type a lot. I do love to type. But, that said, I detest the corporate world where I've found myself working so many years. I'd rather be with the birds.

4) Has a life-changing event ever occured in your past?

Sure. Life changes when you lose someone you love - and it has happened majorly with the loss of my Mom, and my Husband.

Life changed again when I reunited with my childhood first lover. And the hits just keep on coming.

5) The "Great Love of your Life"...?

Who really knows that answer to that?

6) Would you rather be living some-place else?

YES - EMPHATICALLY. The place I live is gorgeous - and historically great for me as it was my grandmother's house. But I long to live away from the city and traffic; out in the country; in another country; on the wild coast - so many possibilities. Just working on the logistics. Home IS where the heart is - but where is my heart??

barman said...

1) Did you graduate from college?

A. Just some College behind me and classes and independent studying after that to get where I am today.

2) Is your current occupation, what your field of expertise was?

A. I started out in Electrical Engineering and moved on to Computers so working in IT, yep it is exactly what I went to school for more or less.

3) Are you happy with your career choice?

A. There are days I would like to take the computer and toss it over the atrium and watch it crash 8 stories below but for the most part I enjoy what I do.

4) Has a life-changing event ever occurred in your past?

A. Several. A bad one back in 1972 (heart break that scared me), but two good ones in 1974 (shoplifting) and in 1982 (fired from my first computer job) although I had no idea the last two would be good for me at the time.

5) The "Great Love of your Life"...?

a. I'm with now
b. I had once, but let him/her go
c. Still looking

A. Looking sort of. Although not very hard for the last 12 years. Sure wish the one in '72 did not get away.

6) Would you rather be living some-place else?

A. Ditto what Galen said. I love Michigan. It I were to be somewhere else I think I would have to still live in a Mid Western state like Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, or possibly Kentucky. Gotta love the winters in Kentucky if you can call that a winter. I love my four seasons and I would hate to give them up but yet I could do with a little less winter. But one can always use more cow bell.
