Wednesday Hodgepodge 139

1. Labor Day weekend (in the US of A) is approaching…what’s something you’ve labored over this year?

Lotsa planning, organizing and scheduling this year.

2. What is one word to describe your ‘job’ or career?


3. What was your worst or least favorite job ever? Why?

I’ve not had a job I didn’t like. If it wasn’t a good experience, it would more likely have been because of the people I worked with rather than the jobs themselves. For instance, I love my English teaching job and I really enjoy my classes and the interactions I have with my students. I’ve worked with some wonderful teachers and some, not so much. Just because I don’t speak like them and I believe in teaching proper English, not the half-baked version. Just sayin’ 😀 .

4. How do you measure contentment?

I think it’s having traveled the road, achieved what you set out to do and being happy where you’re at. Not sure you can actually measure it. Everyone would have their own scale of where they need to be at in order to be content. For some, it may not take much to be content. Others will never be content no matter how much they have.

5. Pickles-like or dislike? What is something you eat that requires a pickle? Dill, bread and butter, sweet gherkins…what’s your favorite kind of pickle?

Hold the pickles please.

6. In your current house-town-state, what is it you like living close to?

I like that the gym is nearby.

7. What is one thing on your ‘want-to-do’ list before summer draws to an official close?

My to-do list right now is as long as my arm. We’re talking major. Luckily for me, summer doesn’t end so technically there IS no deadline. I could go on and on 😆 .

8. Insert your own random thought here.

I watched the VMA… in horror! and yes, I’m referring to the part that everyone’s talking about. Miley, what were you thinking? Shocked at your complete lack of respect for yourself and others!

Thanks, Joyce and have a great week, everyone, thanks for commenting 😀 .

    I didn’t see the VMA’s but you can’t miss the talk about Miley. I think it’s so sad, and hope that’s what all young girls thought too. Why do these actors who began as child stars think they need to go crazy in order to be viewed as an adult?

    I checked out Miley Cyrus on Youtube after hearing so much about it. The VMA’s are known for shock and there have been others before Miley to be outrageous. BUT, saying that, I think it’s especially difficult for all of us because Miley used to be a sweet, pretty girl on Disney and all our young children looked up to her as Hannah Montana. What always bothers me is that these “performers” – not really “singers” – they are all bells & whistles, and shock and grunge. Not much talent. ( I used to get so annoyed with Mariah Carey because she HAS an amazing voice but still tried to sell herself as a sexpot. So degrading.)

    I just had to watch Miley’s performance out of curiosity and it left me sick to my stomach. I feel so sad for her. She has gone down so quickly and it bothers me to the core. So many girls have idolized her for years. She must crave attention, but it’s the wrong kind.
