I have been a bad, bad summer camper. My attendance has been haphazard and I’m going to try and do a little catch up today. I hope head counselor Calliope will forgive me.
Our question today is How do you feel about astrology? What’s your sign, baby, and do you think it matches your personality? I don’t take astrology seriously but I do have fun with it. I’m a Sagittarius and, baby, I’ll claim all the good qualities of a Sag…
“Sagittarians have a positive outlook on life, are full of enterprise, energy, versatility, adventurousness and eagerness to extend experience beyond the physically familiar. They enjoy traveling and exploration, the more so because their minds are constantly open to new dimensions of thought. They are basically ambitious and optimistic, and continue to be so even when their hopes are dashed. Their strongly idealistic natures can also suffer many disappointments without being affected. They are honorable, honest, trustworthy, truthful, generous and sincere, with a passion for justice. They are usually on the side of the underdog in society they will fight for any cause they believe to be just, and are prepared to be rebellious. They balance loyalty with independence.”
and I’ll just avoid the bad vibes given off by the negative qualities. Definitely don’t want to harsh my mellow.
What is your favorite thing about the weekend? Do you take a break from blogs or is this when you catch up? I love getting to sleep in. I love that, on weekends, we usually don’t have a set schedule and we just get to go with the flow. Sadly, with my husband’s work schedule, the weekend is not a guarantee of us having more time together. As for blogging on weekends, I don’t necessarily take a break then but I guess that I’m a bit more likely to take a break on the weekend.
What was your college experience like? Were you involved in any clubs, groups, etc?
If you did not go to college what was your experience like after high school? College was a really incredible experience for me. I think I finally came into my own during college and really gained a lot of self-confidence. Since I was willing to talk about anything and everything, I somehow ended up giving sexual advice to the people on my floor. I ended up gaining a reputation as the Dr. Ruth of my freshmen dorm. I also helped re-establish the Duke Democrats (I’m an avowed Libertarian now) with a dear friend…who I get to see in San Diego when I”m there for BlogHer (Hi Mike!). I also hung out with my friend Mike and his fraternity brothers. I got to go to most of their semi-formals which was incredible. I was vice-president of the Duke Equestrian team and spent one year as the treasurer for my dorm. I also was a member of the Lambda Nu chapter of Alpha Phi Omega – a co-ed service fraternity. And, speaking of dorms, I lived in the coolest dorm on campus. I guess the “popular” groups might have considered us a group of weirdos but we always had fun. We hosted a yearly “Come As You Aren’t” party. We were a bunch of sci-fi geeks and Duke basketball fanatics. We hosted High Tea & Croquet on The Lawn. It was a fucking AWESOME place to live. And, OMG, DUKE BASKETBALL…getting to go to games in Cameron Indoor Stadium, camping out in Krzyzewskiville, face painting, and screaming ourselves hoarse. Can you tell I loved my college years?
Sigh, I was going to try and catch up all the way but I have truly been a slack ass camper. I guess I’ll have to do a few more multi day posts.
So, thoughts on astrology, tell me about your weekends, and what was college like for you? Spill it y’all. Inquiring minds want to know.
