Where Did The Time Go?

Suddenly it's 2018

This year has just passed by so quickly. I don't even know where to start. 

Our little blog has 13 followers now! Thank you guys for sticking with us. I know we have been posting much lately but with school and generally growing up things, its hard to find time to sit down and write a post. 

I certainly am going to post more this coming year. :D :D 

Kat and I have exciting things happening this year. This year, we are directing our church's Epiphany play. Which is a little terrifying!!! 

WE'RE GRADUATING THIS YEAR!!!!!

Who decided it would be a good idea to release us on the world???? (jk jk jk) Then this fall, Kat will be headed off to college and me....... I have no idea. It has caused me many a gray hair just thinking about it. My hair is practically white!!!!!!!! (I kid, I kid) Still brown :)

Have a Happy New Year!!!!!!!!!

Lia




Remember when staying up until Midnight used to be a big thing? Wow.

Things That Happened This Year: 

  • Catholic Girl Stuff turned 1!
     
  • We have 8k Pageviews... WOW
     
  • We both totally forgot to post on this blog.
     
  • Lia turned 18! YIKES
     
  • I applied for different colleges (I feel so old...)
     
  •  We reached our 100th post...and then some
     
  • Drank WAAAAY to much coffee
     
  • Played pranks
     
  • Spent time with friends (though not nearly enough)


    And since Lia started, that means I finish. Which means I have to break the not so happy news... Catholic Girl Stuff will be on hiatus for the month of January.
    (Don't worry, Lia will probably still be posting over at Musical Writings....We all know she's your favorite anyways)

INTJ: THE COLDEST HUMAN (And the best, obviously)



I am an INTJ, in case you didn't know that before...

And in case you didn't guess from the title...


Anyway, so I am female (gasp) and an INTJ.

And guess what? INTJ's are one of the rarest three types. INTJ and ENTJ women and INFJ men. Those three are also the three rarest types overall.


So we (Lia and I) decided to do posts on our types!
 (As in Myers-Briggs types, not "our type" types. That would be weird.)


(Or would it?)

So you can look for Lia's post on the the 12th and our dual post on Myers-Briggs on the 14th!

I have no idea how to we will reserve any of our humor or knowledge about Myers Briggs to write a ENTIRE SECOND POST!


Actually it probably won't be that hard...


Since I'm just going to fill this entire post with random blabbling...

ANYWAY!

INTJ's are:

  • Very in-control of them emotions and treat them like an annoying cold 95% of the time. 
     
  • We will also do this thing where we are like, "I feel emotionally unstable over something...Kind of angry and temperamental...."

    And then we lock ourselves away in our rooms and come out two hours later like, "I have discovered that I was, in fact, jealous."
  • We can also logically convince ourselves that we shouldn't be sad or upset about something and it actually works.

    Our heart will be sad and our brain will just make a giant list of "Why You Shouldn't Be Sad Because This Guy Dosen't Like You" and then ship the thing down to the heart, who will in turn be a little sad still but get over it.
     
  • You know how people say, "Fine. You know what? I'm done. I'm done wasting my time on this."

    And then they're still angry.

    When an INTJ says that, they literally stop thinking about it within a couple hours. Or even minutes.

    And people get mad at us because they don't think we're actually over it and that we're using the sentence in the common way...
  • We also love arguments. Not the actually confrontation and anger that normally comes with it, but the debate. We will often chose an opposite side and argue it even though we don't have a stance either way. Just because we feel like having a debate and logically thinking through it and so sure. We'll play the devil's advocate.
  • And this causes problems. Because when INTJ's debate, we don't get mad. We're just sitting there debating happily away and then people keep raising their voices and we're just like, Wait. No. Why are you getting loud? How does that help the debate?
     
  • And sometimes we'll not notice when people get upset in arguments...
    I have this friend who I have NEVER fought with IN MY LIFE. We've disagreed sure. But never fought.

    Except once. We were talking about something. I don't even remember what it was. I think it was cock-fighting and whether the police were right to kill confiscated chickens. She was arguing that they shouldn't, because the police were occasionally in-humane in the their executions and something.

    I didn't even really care about it, I could have leaned either way. But I said that the police were right to kill the roosters if they wanted to, because 1. it was a big problem in Hawaii. (Or where-ever it was) and it would punish the owners and what are the police going to do with chickens that have been training to fight other chickens?

    I didn't even realize she was upset until she stood up and left the room


I meant for this post to be longer, but *shrugs*

Do you know your Myers-Briggs Type?

Christmas Novena

This novena, also know as the Saint Andrew Novena or The Saint Andrew Christmas Novena is supposed to be said 15 times a day from November 30 until Christmas.

St. Andrew Christmas Novena

Hail and blessed be the hour and moment in which the Son of God was born Of the most pure Virgin Mary, at midnight, in Bethlehem, in the piercing cold. In that hour vouchsafe, I beseech Thee, O my God, to hear my prayer and grant my desires through the merits of Our Savior Jesus Christ, and of His blessed Mother. Amen.

 

I'm really sorry I posted this so late, but here it is.

Awkward and Awesome: Winter, Holidays, Etc

Awkward:

  • They are playing Christmas music. You love Christmas music. But it isn't after Thanksgiving, so you stubbornly refuse to sing along out of principle. 
      
  • You end up singing anyway because your favorite comes on.
     
  • Remember the truck thing I whined about? Guess what....I did it again. Why? WHY? *
     
  • Slush. Yuck
     
  • And snow. Except for the first day when everything is nice and crisp. After that...it can go
     
  • I DO NOT LIKE BEING COLD
     
  • I go into panic mode as I realize it is almost time for Christmas shopping and I must begin the mad scrabble to guy things for people. And make sure I don't forget anybody.
     
  • Misplacing Christmas presents and finding them a few weeks after Christmas.
    Or a few months.
    Or never.
     
  • Forgetting people while Christmas shopping and having to rush out at the last minute
     
  • WHO do I need to buy stuff for again? 
     
  • So. Many. People. In. The. Stores. *gag*
     
  • IT IS OCTOBER! WHY IS YOUR CHRISTMAS STUFF UP!
    For people who don't procrastinate, you say?
    Ha ha. You can't fool me. Those people are myths!
     
  • I love to wrap things. But I also procrastinate. So you'll either get a beautifully wrapped gift or it'll have a towel thrown over it.
     
  • The winter wind blowing your hair...back into your lipstick...
     
  • Knocking over the Christmas tree or even just seeing it fall
    (If you see it fall from across the room, do not yell TIMBER!)


Awesome:

  • So festive!
     
  • Christmas music
     
  • Scarves and people walking about with smiles and coffee cups in hand
     
  • EGGNOG! EGGNOG! EGGNOG! EGGNOG!
     
  • Am I Christmas shopping or is it for me? Hahaha. You'll never know!
     
  • CHRISTMAS MUSIC
     
  • I am the best at hiding things. I am practically a squirrel. (Sometimes I forget when they are though.)

  • First snow
     
  • Decorating the house
     
  • Putting up the tree with your family and everyone being covered in tiny plastic needles by the time it is over
     
  • Taking out your favorite ornament
     
  • When you find the perfect gift and your just like: Yes! This! This is perfect. and then wait smugly for them to unwrap it on Christmas day
     
  • Getting a sibling something weird as a prank and watching them just kind of stare at it in confusion for a couple minutes while everyone laughs hysterically
     
  • CRANBERRY PUDDING WITH IRISH WHISKEY SAUCE
     
  • Midnight Mass
     
  • Coming up your drive and seeing your house decked out in lights and wreaths and garlands
     
  • Forcing your pets to wear ridiculous outfits and laughing at their annoyed expression
     
  • Doing the same to small children and taking pictures of them for future blackmail
     
  • Christmas movies
     

 By the way, comment your favorite Christmas movie!
(Or any movie set during the winter holidays.)
(And no, Leap Day does not count as a winter holiday)

*For all you newcomers (first of all, Hi)

The Truck thing is the fact that I will see a nice truck in the parking lot and will stare at it. And I never look at the cab first, so after I have stared at the bed, back wheels, side, etc THEN I notice the owner sitting in their car. Often, they are busy with whatever they are doing and don't notice me. But a few times I have slowly looked up to meet the amused eyes of this guy who has been sitting their watching me check out his truck.
