I was perusing Steph's blog awhile back and came across a post she had done about what's in a name. My given name is Anne, but growing up I was Annie K. So, I thought I'd put both names into the hat and see what comes out. The interesting thing was that Anne was just a bit different from Annie but I'm going to include it all and not leave out the messy stuff it had to say about me, be because I am so secure in myself. (Ok, originally I was going to leave out the messy stuff because I'm insecure that way, but since we're being honest here...).
What Anne Means
You are usually the best at everything ... you strive for perfection.
(I've been accused of being ultra-competitive...)
You are confident, authoritative, and aggressive.
(...my brothers would have called me bossy.)
You have the classic "Type A" personality.
(Would vacuuming 3 times per week put me in that category?)
You are very intuitive and wise. You understand the world better than most people.
You also have a very active imagination. You often get carried away with your thoughts.
You are prone to a little paranoia and jealousy. You sometimes go overboard in interpreting signals.
(I do have a gift for assuming...)
You are friendly, charming, and warm. You get along with almost everyone.
You work hard not to rock the boat. Your easy going attitude brings people together.
At times, you can be a little flaky and irresponsible. But for the important things, you pull it together.
(I'm going to be honest here and tell you that I would not describe myself as easy going and neither would my husband. It's one thing I wish I was more of, but I tend to stress out very easily and am not that great at taking things as they come. Maybe 2009, will be the year I conquer stress and over reacting and become more easy going (like Jon).
So here's what it says about Annie, which is a little more dead on.
You tend to be pretty tightly wound. It's easy to get you excited... which can be a good or bad thing.
(See explanation about lack of easy goingness above.)
You have a lot of enthusiasm, but it fades rather quickly. You don't stick with any one thing for very long.
(I promise Helen, I'm going to stick with the food blog!)
You have the drive to accomplish a lot in a short amount of time. Your biggest problem is making sure you finish the projects you start.
(Uh...only if it gets boring...)
What's in your name?
