hello, me

There are many things I've wanted to blog about lately and I currently have a running list in my head of potential 'blog-worthy topics'. Included on that list are things like 1) the traumatic gum-graft I had done last week that, according to my dentist, is "no big deal" and "can be done on your lunch break" and "is slightly uncomfortable, but not painful" ... but I'd like to disagree and state for the record that it IS A BIG DEAL, it CANNOT be done on a lunch break (and really one should plan on taking a few days off b/c it is THAT traumatic) and it is VERY PAINFUL in addition to being "uncomfortable"!! ... 2) my experience of flying high over the Manhattan skyline on a trapeze (YES! a TRAPEZE!) on Tuesday night thanks to the Trapeze School of New York (stupid gum-graft wasn't going to stand in my way!), but really I should wait until I get pictures from anna~banana before I post on that one. Let me just say though: Freaking Amazing Experience ... 3) my discontented state at the Day Job lately and the never ending search for The Perfect Career that will allow me to use my creativity and passions in addition to somehow helping the world become a better place and working with (and for) people. I have no answers necessarily, but there has been *some* research on careers such as teaching and/or art therapy and *maybe* some talk of grad school. But I am so in the exploratory stage at this point, I'm hesitant to share too much. And who knows? Perhaps there is some amazing, soul-fulfilling opportunity just WAITING for me around the corner! We shall see...

So there is my list. My list of blog-worthy topics. But THEN I discovered THIS fun mosaic-making game which has proven to be a WONDERFUL procrastination-tool/distraction (and has taken all attention away from writing):

*hello, me*
me

Here's how it works: type your answer to each of the questions below into Flickr search. Using only the first page, choose your favorite image, then copy & paste each of the URL’s into the mosaic maker (3 columns, 4 rows).

The questions:
1. What is your first name? (Katie)
2. What is your favorite food? (Italian)
3. What high school did you attend? (Oakton -- Becky, LOOK! one of your photos came up on my 1st page!)
4. What is your favorite color? (Red)
5. Who is your celebrity crush? (Paul McCartney)
6. Favorite drink? (Coffee)
7. Dream vacation? (This changes often, but lately: Greece)
8. Favorite dessert? (Icecream)
9. What do you want to be when you grow up? (Artist, Musician, World Traveler)
10.What do you love most in life? (Magic)
11. One word to describe you. (Creative)
12. Your Flickr name. (That City Girl)

Wanna play?

How cool is that - I thought I recognized that picture ;) Your life in NYC continues to sound incredible...except for that gum grafting thing. I had a pretty terrible dentist experience last week too and I'm going in for part 2 next week. UGH! I'll write a letter soon...
