Which of Snow White’s 7 dwarfs describes you best? Plus what would the 8th dwarf’s name be? (Doc, Happy, Bashful, Sleepy, Sneezy, Grumpy, Dopey)
This a tough one to answer. I am sure many of my students would think Grumpy, Dopey or Happy would be appropriate. Looking for support, a confidence booster (why did I bother?), I turned to MGW and received a no-nonsense ‘Grumpy’ for my efforts. Our kids definitely think I am Grumpy. So I am quite Happy (internally) when I hear them talk about the managing decisions they have to make about their work peers/colleagues.
As for the Eighth dwarf, I think his name would be Easy….as in laid back…also an adjective applied to me last week,
In short I would like to think that I am a Happy soul.
Would you travel into outer space?
If I could have a return ticket. Some of my students told me, last week, that they would happily take the one way ticket to Mars on offer at the moment.
If you were a tree, would you become a book or furniture? Please describe.
Neither one. Furniture, generally speaking, only has a life span of around five to ten years. The digital age is now reducing the number of books being made and generally books have a shorter life span again. Though if I were to come back as a book it would need to be a good novel or history book….text books are tossed out on a yearly basis.
I would prefer to remain a big old tree and live for several hundred years and raise families of birds and possums and have kids climb through my branches.
Which would you prefer: a wild, turbulent life filled with joy, sorrow, passion, and adventure–intoxicating successes and stunning setbacks; or a contented bordering on happy, secure, predictable life surrounded by friends and family without such wide swings of fortune and mood?
I think I am living the former version of life. I have been on a crest of a wave for the past few years, now I think it is about to break. It is at times like these I would like the secure, predictable version of life.
