Friend-seeking personalities

the active life 2 Comments »

Over the years I’ve known a lot of people and observed different personalities. Of course I have no scientific proof, but it’s something I came up with based upon observation. People have different ways to seek friends. How you find them and how you keep them and when you move on is up to you. The personalities are divided up into 3 types of friend-seeking personalities:

Type A
This group is the safe group. This personality is satisfied with the current group of friends and don’t actively seek new friends. Type A has a tight knit group who generally hang out with each other. Advantages are type A has friends they can rely on. They can lean on each other, and is not afraid to ask for favors even though they can be far fetched. Disadvantages are beyond the group type A doesn’t actively attempt to make new friends. New faces are harder to come by.

Type B
This is the adventurous group. This group isn’t satisfied with the current group of friends and continuously seek out new friends. Type B is very friendly, open and excel at making new friends. Advantages are type B has lots and lots of friends. Everywhere type B goes they see people they recognize. Disadvantages are they don’t know their friends to the depth type A does. Type B doesn’t really have dependable friends to rely on. Friendship always stay shallow and before long type B moves on.

Type C
Hermit. Advantage hermit. Disadvantage hermit.

Opportunity

“My husband says God told him to do it, what do you do with that?”
“Sounds like and opportunity. Let me ask you something. If someone prays for patience you think God gives him patience or the opportunity to be patient? If he prays for courage does God give him courage or the opportunity to be courageous? If someone prayed for the family to be closer you think God zaps them with warm fuzzy feelings or does he give them opportunities to love each other?”

That is the only thing I got from the movie Evan Almighty.

Noise Ninja

Being able to manipulate pictures after taking the picture is the only reason I’m into photography. Average pictures like the one straight from my camera can be converted into the picture below with the assistance of Noise Ninja and Lightroom.

I never liked shooting at 1600 ISO because at full resolution the picture has lots of noise. In this situation it was unavoidable so I decided to capture the moment and depend on post processing to bring out the colors.

The second picture’s a bit warm and I’ll continue to adjust the colors. I just wanted to see how well Noise Ninja reduced the noise and on full resolution I’m quite impressed.

Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving! I know it’s late, but Happy Thanksgiving anyways. Giving thanks shouldn’t be reserved for Thanksgiving. It should be a process repeated daily. There’s many things I’m thankful for and this year’s no different. These last few years I feel like I’m blessed with so many talents that I’m having trouble finding the time for myself. I am thankful that this year’s been smooth. I feel in any given situation there are 3 possible outcomes: better than expected, expected, and worse than expected. For the most part I’ve fallen within the better than expected to expected range with a few exceptions. Saying that I’m looking forward to the end of the year and next year.

Sugarland

Sugarland made another list. This time it’s the 5th safest city in the United States. Scientific or not, I’m not the one who wrote the story. I’m only interested in Sugarland because it’s a place where I want to eventually live.
