(Closed) Charters of the Hive Part XXXII

posted 9 years ago in TTC
  • poll: If money were no object, would you still work or be a SAHM? And, what's your reality? TWO POLLS!

    In the perfect situation, I'd be a SAHM!

    I'd work part-time, because I love my job!

    I'd work part-time, because otherwise I'd go completely insane!

    I'd work full-time, because I love my job!

    I'd work full-time, because otherwise I'd go completely insane!

    Other? Explain below.

    SECOND POLL STARTS HERE! YAY POLLS!

    I'm going to be a SAHM!

    I'd like to be a SAHM, but it's not feasible for our family.

    What best describes your high school self: band geek, popular kid, loner, nerd, odd kid, athlete, that person who floated between all the cliques, other? Omg… I hung out with ALL the weirdos. I was sort of a loner/geek. Now that I look back, I’m really glad I split off after high school. They just got weirder! o.0 I’m kind of a jock-nerd now! lol

    uh… my high school self was a mix between a loner and the person who floated between all the cliques… I was a loner dating one of the football/basketball “stars”.  It made for a VERY interesting highschool experience.

    What best describes your high school self: band geek, popular kid, loner, nerd, odd kid, athlete, that person who floated between all the cliques, other?

    almost all of the above.. But I wasn’t a fan of HS AT ALL I could NOT wait to get out of it!!!

    band geek: I was in band.. I loved it! Was in top tier band and made districts and county band. But didn’t do marching band because it conflicted with swimmingwhich leads me to athlete: I did USA Swimming, HS league (varsity all 4 years), and Summer league. I also played tennis. nerd: I was in honors and AP classes and actually liked school back then, especially math loner: I didn’t have too many friends because I was so busy with swimming and school work and spent a lot of free time hanging out with my family or one best friend odd kid: I’m very talkative and wasn’t a prep so I didn’t really fit in… so yea definitely in this category! lol

     

    as for the poll: I voted other for both!!! I’m still unemployed, but DH makes good enough salary that we could live off it. (We don’t really care to be rich and are already frugal with our money) But ideally I’d be working until I had the baby and then stay at home until he/she is off in school. At that point I could go into part time or full time. Andddd that is also what we plan on doing. So my ideal and plans are the same!

    I was a mixed of a floater and math geek. I was pretty involved in school and did pretty good, so I guess I nourished my social and intellectual skills lol! I didn’t do sports in high school but I was in the soccer team while in middle school. My English was zero in high school, so that put a sort of barrier when I first came to the US. I am glad teachers and classmates were nice and friendly to me.

    I was one of those weird kids that loves school. Sick or not, I cried to go to school.

    I married a shy and geek guy. My husband thinks “everybody likes me” πŸ™‚

    Nerd, but not socially awkward – we were drum major in the band (BF), editor of the yearbook and on the literary magazine (me), for example. So we were the ones who went out and found the location for prom but didn’t come trashed πŸ™‚

    What best describes your high school self: band geek, popular kid, loner, nerd, odd kid, athlete, that person who floated between all the cliques, other? That person who floated between.  I played field hockey and soccer, but I was also in the Governor’s School for Literature where I attended a magnet school for 3 hours a day and my regular HS for 3 hours a day.  I was well rounded, you can say!

    @bananasareyellow:  honestly I didn’t even try for state… Once I got to the point that I was potentially good enough..I was at a stage where I just wanted to play for the love of it vs. being all hard core. It was like protesting against THE MAN to just want to play because I liked it. I think it also had to do with the fact that the band director didn’t like that I wasn’t as serious b/c I had other priorities (ie school work and swimming) so when she wanted me to audition I told her NO! lol sometimes I wish I had actually tried… but other times I’m happy I didn’t stress out over that because playing was my escape from life.
