What’s Your Ideal Social Scene?

social-people

Do you like to socialize? I think we all do to one extent or another, but it’s about finding the right social scene. I’m enough of an introvert that I can get easily overwhelmed by the wrong social scene. I’m pretty sure that most people would find my favorite social scenes a bit too boring! Anyway, I thought this would be an interesting quiz topic :)

What’s Your Ideal Social Scene? Take my latest quiz to find out. Let me know what you get one this one and if you think it’s true. What is your favorite type of social gathering?

What Direction is Your Heart Pointed In?

feet with hearts

Happy Valentine’s Eve… or not, depending on how you roll. I have to admit that even though I’ve been in a relationship for a long time, I still consider Valentine’s Day to be a little overhyped. Mr. Blogthings and I tried to do something a little special last year – we got reservations at a fairly inexpensive but nice restaurant here in Austin. We made the best of things, but we didn’t enjoy ourselves at all. There was just too much fuss involved! I think this year we’re just gonna split a pizza :)

So I didn’t want to go overboard with a Valentine’s Day quiz this year. If you’re looking for one, we have plenty of Valentines quizzes on Blogthings. Instead, I thought we could get a little philosophical about love. Take my latest quiz to see where your heart is going these days: What Direction is Your Heart Pointed In? Let me know what you get on this one!

The Breakfast in Bed Test

breakfast-in-bed

Do you like breakfast in bed? I do, as long as it’s my last morning sleeping in a hotel. I don’t really want to get toast crumbs in a bed that I’ll be sleeping in ;-)

I was feeling like I could use a pick me up this week, so I have been dreaming of breakfast in bed. In my experience, there’s very little that a lazy morning can’t cure. And a good lazy morning starts with someone else making breakfast for you.

Does breakfast in bed sound good to you? Take The Breakfast in Bed Test, and see what your ideal breakfast in bed says about you.

Where Should You Go to Fashion Week?

fashion week

Have you been feeling very fashionable lately? I have not, except when the weather is unseasonably mild. It’s hard for me to feel fashionable when I’m rocking a gazillion layers. However, I do feel a little chic when I’m able to pair jeans and boots without looking like I’m ready to crawl into my snow fort.

I wanted to write a fashion week quiz for a long time, and for some reason, right now seemed perfect. Fashion week Paris just ended (let’s be honest – it’s often fashion week somewhere), and I wouldn’t mind being whisked off to fashion week somewhere for some VIP treatment.

Would you like going to fashion week? I feel like it’s at least got to be worth it for the people watching. I decided that once I knew I wanted to go fashion week, I needed to know where! So I wrote a quiz: Where Should You Go to Fashion Week?

Let me know what you get on this quiz and if you like your result. Have you ever been to a fashion show?

What’s Your Secret Superpower?

woman thinking about things

Do you ever feel like you have a superpower? At my best, I feel like I have a couple – creativity and ambition. They aren’t my everyday superpowers, but I can tap into them occasionally if my day is going well. Of course, when I am having a bad day, I don’t feel like I have any superpowers :)

Whether you’re having the best day ever or a not so great day, I thought it would be fun to think about everyday superpowers we all have that others don’t even know about. It could just be the ability to bite your tongue when someone says something annoying – or being able to multitask during a busy morning. I think these everyday superpowers can be a bit underrated, as they are really what makes or breaks a day sometimes.

To learn what sort of general area your everyday superpower falls into, take my latest quiz: What’s Your Secret Superpower? This quiz can’t predict anything as specific as whether you can clean a room in five or make someone think you’re listening when you’re actually thinking about something else. But it will give you a good idea of what your superpower is in a more general sense. Let me know what you get and if it describes you well.

Discussion questions: What ordinary thing can you do at a superpower level? If you could have any ordinary superpower, what would you like to have?

What’s Your 80s Dance Song?

80s girls

Do you like 80s dance music? I grew up listening to it, and I still think it’s a ton of fun. I was probably first introduced to 80s dance music via MTV, and later on they played it a lot on the radio in my hometown… even when it wasn’t the 80s any longer. I think it’s fun that some clubs still do 80s nights. There’s so much good 80s dance music – from glam to gothy to R&B. (Hmmm, I think I may have stumbled upon another little quiz idea.)

I was having a major case of the winter blahs, so I decided to write about 80s music because it always makes me smile. And while dance music doesn’t always make me dance, it certainly has been known to on occasion ;-) Between cold fronts and tax season, I feel like we could all use a little extra happiness this week. So join me in a virtual 80s dance party… or actually get your groove on. No one will be the wiser!

Want to know which 80s dance song should start your playlist? Take my latest quiz: What’s Your 80s Dance Song? Let me know what you get on this one and if you think it describes you. And if you really do want to get some 80s dancing on, I suggest that you plug your song into a service like YouTube which will give you a customized playlist based on a song you choose. This is how I setup some music for every Blogthings quiz that I write :)

Discussion questions: Do you like dance music? What kinds? Do you have any favorite 80s artists that you love? Who are they?

What’s Your Egyptian Name?

Have you ever been fascinated with Egyptian culture? I was a bit fixated on it when I was a kid, and I’m still a bit interested in ancient Egyptian things. When I was growing up in the 80s, it seemed like Egyptian culture was everywhere – from movies to museum exhibits to songs (anyone remember “Walk Like an Egyptian?”). And I guess it’s even making a comeback now thanks to Katy Perry music videos :)

I remember becoming acquainted with Egyptian civilization during school field trips, and it always seemed so amazing to me. From beautiful art to hieroglyphics to mummies (I’ll pass on that part personally), it’s amazing how advanced and fascinating this ancient culture was. I also think that ancient Egypt had a good bit of glamour and mystery, which is probably why we’re still fascinated with it to this day.

I have never been to Egypt, and of course, visiting there these days would not exactly be the same as going back in time to ancient Egypt. I did get the chance to visit an Egyptian restaurant once though, and that’s possibly good enough for me. Food is my favorite part of travel anyway! Since I won’t be going to Egypt anytime soon, I thought I would celebrate my interest in ancient Egypt with a quiz. Thanks to the many folks who have suggested an Egyptian name quiz over the years. I finally found images I liked well enough to do one!

If you lived in Egypt, what would your name be? Take this name quiz to find out: What’s Your Egyptian Name? Let me know what name you get, and if you like it. Does it suit you?

What’s Your Winter Scent?

How has the winter been treating you so far? Even though I know many people have it worse than I do weather wise (or better, depending on your perspective), this winter seems so long to me already. We have sure been giving our space heater a workout on these chilly mornings, and it seems like it will be at least a few days before it’s a little more comfortable out.

There are a lot of ways I try to make the winter more bearable for myself – yoga when it’s too cold to go outside, knitting for when I’m bored and restless, and my favorite bath and beauty products for when my body needs a little pick me up. Thinking about the last thing on my list reminded me of how much I love winter scents. There is something so comforting and cozy about the best smells of winter. Because this time of year is a little less blooming than usual, I really savor and appreciate the few seasonal scents that we do have.

Thinking about winter scents inspired me to write a new quiz about them. I think some winter scents can be playful (like peppermint) or very grounding (like pine). They all have their time and place, but like most of you, there are a couple that I connect to more than the others. I tend to like scents that are spicy and strong in the winter. I find them warming :)

What about you? What winter scent do you prefer? Take my latest quiz to find out: What’s Your Winter Scent? Let me know what you get on this one and how true it is for you.

Discussion question: What are some of your personal favorite scents in the winter?

If Your Life Was a Movie, What Genre Would It Be?

woman who likes noir

Do you ever feel like your life is a movie? I sometimes do… both during my life’s best and worst moments. Sometimes thinking of my life as a movie can be a good coping mechanism… there are definitely dark comedic elements that come up from time to time. If someone or something really annoys me, I try to think “Oh yeah, saving this for my indie movie!”

I thought today would be a good day to revisit the subject of movies with the Golden Globe Awards happening. This is one of my favorite awards shows ever, probably only second to the Oscars. I love that the Golden Globes span both movies and television. Plus, I love that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are hosting again. I think they’re hilarious!

While my life can be almost any genre of movie depending on what day it is, although hopefully it’s never a horror movie!  If I had to pick, I’d say that my life is usually like an indie comedy if things are going well. If things aren’t going well, maybe it’s more like one of those very dialog driven dramas. My ideal life / movie would be written and directed by Whit Stillman.

What about you? What sort of movie is your life like? Take If Your Life Was a Movie, What Genre Would It Be? to find out. Let me know what your result is and how accurately it describes your life!

Discussion questions: If you had to pick a movie sub-genre to pick your life not covered in this quiz, which one would it be? If you could choose, who would you like to direct the movie of your life?
