At Last!!!!

The last class of the semester was today!!!!
And now I don't know what to do with myself.

I guess I'll just have to post random things and watch you-tube videos and eat cookies...

Project done!

Our design project is done! We finished it last night and showed it to our class this morning. Now we just have to turn in our report and give a nice professional presentation to the class and we'll be done with the course!

Of course the next question is: what do we do with the project now?
One of my teammates suggested blowing it up.

Above is my dear sister at our Christian group's semester semi-formal this evening.

It is one of my favorite events of each semester. Whoohoo! I danced my feet off and now we're both exhausted!

At present, she's washing off her feet. There's no words for how dirty our feet get after these dances. Can't dance in high-heels, so we all kick our shoes off.
Anyway, it was grand, and now I'm hungry.

The Last Crunch

It is that time of the semester again.
I call it the last crunch...
When two projects, one exam, two concerts, and two presentations are all coming at you within about five days it seems like a good name for the time of semester.
But don't worry.
This won't start until next Friday when the first project is due.

But in the meantime, Happy Spring!
We have dandelions and forget-me-nots and yellow jackets and ants here now!

Thinking vs. Feeling

The third dichotomy of type is the thinking vs. feeling dichotomy. And again, these words mean something a little bit different than you might think.

This dichotomy is about how one makes decisions.

A thinker usually looks for rules or standards that can be applied to all situations. They tend to pull themselves out of the issue at hand to look at it as objectively as possible and to hopefully find some rule to apply to it.

A feeler tries to understand all points of view in the situation or issue. They look at each situation in a case by case system.

One should not confuse feeling and thinking with being emotional or being logical. Both can come to the same decision; they'll just reach their conclusions by different methods. Both can be extremely good, clear, and logical thinkers. It's just how they look at the situations that makes them different.
