What if?

What if years ago you had chosen a different path in life? How would things turn out? Better? Worse? Who knows?

I remember the line from a song in Pocahontas' Just Around The River Bend
"But people, I guess, can't live like that
We all must pay a price
To be safe, we lose our chance of ever knowing
What's around the riverbend?"

I wrote this musical based on that thought, not realizing that the timing is spot on for my very own life. Now, my fictitious story is ever closer to my heart.

This September 25th - 28th, come and watch it at the Short + Sweet Musical Festival 2013 in klpac.

A little too green for a yellow

I love personality tests. I just love anything and everything to do with human behaviour. Always so fascinating!! ♥

I just did a Herrmann Brain Dominance Instrument during a training last month. Results show that I am a very very high yellow... a dash of red and a pinch of blue. But absolutely zero green-ness. Zilch!

Here is the overview of the 4 quadrants, what colour(s) are you?

Right now, my job feels very green and blue. Very.
I feel like a fish out of water
Yet I do like my team, and I do like the company. Anyway, I'm too new and it's too soon to move on. But I really really dread my daily work. It's really dreadful. Don't you wish you could test-drive a job before accepting it?? How now brown cow??
