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.


Music of the Week #18

Hi guys!

Haven't done one of these in a while :)

The theme today is.......

Eighteen!!! (which is funny, cause its #18, i promise i didn't plan that)


Of course you're all probably wondering... why 18??

Well.........let's just say its because I am no longer 17 :D




Eighteen



When You Are 18

Ok i couldn't find a video for this one, YouTube hates me right now. But its by Celtic Thunder so go look it up :)


What About 18

Weird Things I Tried That I Ended Up Liking


They aren't all "weird" per say.

But here are some of the things I've tried that I ended up loving.


Acupuncture: 
Acupuncture for Fertility and Pregnancy https://www.facebook.com/YostFamilyChiropractic
[Pinterest]

I know. It sounds a little creepy to some people to have tiny needles stuck in you. But you actually can't feel the needles. And its fun!



Bubble Tea
Georgia Peaches and Pearls

[Pinterest]

I tried this fairly recently (we don't have any place near by that sells it.) And now I'm hooked. The place we got it from is too far away to drive, so now I have to learn how to make it myself. 

Tim Tams

Irresistable cupcakes made with a classic cookie we love
[Pinterest]

Crunchy chocolate cookies with creamy chocolate filling. Dipped in chocolate. These are extremely amazing. (And I'm not really a chocolate person. Or a cookie person.) If you want to try them, most grocery stores have them now. I'm told Kroger does and I normally get them from Meijer. 

British Candy
New Zealand Candy Deliciousness | hungry and fithungry and fit

[Pinterest]
You may or may not know of my love of tea, scones and British food. I am extremly fond of Crunchie Bars, Flake chocolate bars, vimto flavored bon bons and Maltesers
These particular candies I found at a British Food's store near me, but you can order them online. 

Mochi

mochi balls.... mmmmmmmmm.

   [Pinterest]

A Japanese sweet. Has a pasty doughy taste. 


And that is why you should try new things! Because there are so many good things out there!
Or maybe it is the reason you should NOT try new things. You'd end up like me, ordering a strange assortment of sweets off the internet and writing boring blog posts about them.

So, Um NaNoWriMo

Hi guys!!


NANOWRIMO IS ALMOST UPON US. EVERYBODY PANIC!!!




Ok ok, calm down.

You can get through this. I promise you, it hopefully won't be that bad.

So the question that's (maybe) going through your minds.

Am I doing NaNoWriMo?

The answer: Sort of???


I'm not working on my novella this November. I am not writing it anymore. I realized that I am not a novel writer, that's not my calling. But that's okay, I've accepted it. Let me know in the comments if you want me to do a post about what my novella was going to be about and my characters!

Instead, I am going to be working on my songs. I am planning on getting as many written as possible. Hopefully, my muse won't be off in lala land doing who knows what.

I am signed up on the website, so shoot me a message! My username is Lia99


Have a great NaNo everyone!!!

Dear Hate/////For All The Victims Of The Las Vegas Shooting









Dear hate
I saw you on the news today
Like a shock that takes my breath away
You fall like rain, cover us in drops of pain
I'm afraid that we just might drown






Dear hate
Well, you sure are colorblind
Your kiss is the cruelest kind
You could poison any mind
Just look at mine
Don't know how this world keeps spinning 'round and 'round






You were there in the garden, like a snake in the grass
I see you in the morning staring through the looking glass
You whisper down in history and echo through these halls
But I hate to tell you, love's gonna conquer all





Dear hate
You were smiling from that Selma bridge
In Dallas, when that bullet hit and Jackie cried
You pulled those towers from the sky
But even on our darkest nights
The world keeps spinning 'round






You were there in the garden, like a snake in the grass
I see you in the morning staring through the looking glass
You whisper down through history and echo through these halls
But I hate to tell you, love's gonna conquer all





Dear love
Just when I think you've given up
You were there in the garden when I ran from your voice
I hear you every morning through the chaos and the noise
You still whisper down through history and echo through these halls
And tell me love's gonna conquer all






Gonna conquer all




This is not my song. This song is by Maren Morris. She released it after the shooting. Please pray for all the victims and their families.

(Much like my jokes) 

-Kat


WHO HAD THE BETTER JOKE? TELL US IN THE COMMENTS!

(Ps. I a, just a liddy bit competitive, in case you haven't guessed)

The Green Fields of France




 Well how do you do, young Willie McBride?
Do you mind if I sit here down by your graveside?
And rest for a while 'neath the warm summer sun
I've been walking all day and I'm nearly done




I see by your gravestone you were only 19
When you joined the great fallin' in 1916
I hope you died quick and I hope you died clean
 Willie McBride, was it slow and obscene?




Did they beat the drum slowly?
Did they play the fife lowly?
Did they sound the death march as they lowered you down?
Did the band play the post and chorus?
Did the pipes play the flowers of the forest?



Did you leave a wife or a sweetheart behind?
In some faithful heart is your memory in shrine?
And though you died back in 1916
In that faithful heart you're forever 19



Or are you a stranger without even a name?
Enclosed  forever behind a glass pane
In an old photograph, torn and battered and stained
And faded to yellow in a brown yellow frame



Now Willie McBride, I can't help wondering why
Do those who lie here know why they died?
Did they really believe when they answered the cause?
Did they really believe that this war would end wars?




But the sorrow, the sufferin', the glory, the pain
The killing and dying were all done in vain
But, Willie McBride, it all happened again, and again
and again, and again, and again



Did the pipes play the flowers of the forest?



So, obviously, this isn't my song. I found this cover done by my favorite band, Celtic Thunder. I had no idea they did this song and I have listened to nothing else!!!!

Time Flies When You're Panicking and Don't Want To Grow Up










(*Awww* So cute)







Can you believe that an ENTIRE YEAR HAS PASSED SINCE CGS STARTED? 

Because it has. 

And I am freakin' out. 

*Screaming* Me too!!

I mean, look: 
My first post (not counting that one creepy welcome post) was THIS.  
That's right! It's the "Try not to cringe challenge!"
(I failed)



My welcome one wasn't much better. *cringing so hard right now*
My first official post was just as bad *still cringing*

(Hey, Lia failed too! We all failed. Wow. [Comment if you failed too!])

I'd like to think we got better. :)

(Because she's a lovely positive person)

Wow, I still haven't wrapped my head around the fact that its been a year since we started.

Kat was talking to me one day and said, "HEY WE SHOULD START A BLOG!"  I didn't think much of it til she called me and told me she created it and now here we are.

I literally did. We mentioned it once, I got bored (this is how most of our crazy stories began) and then a created a gmail account and a blogger account, set everything up. And then I called her the next day like "Lia! I started a blog. Here's the account name and password." and she was like "Whaa?" 

(We do have a lot of crazy stories, we could probably write a book.)

Then she told me to write a welcome blog post, which I did. *directs you to cringyness up above*
It was so short but I didn't really know what else to say. 

(Yes. So you can blame me for the Welcome Posts. BLOGGING TIP: Don't make a welcome post. JUST START POSTING and then make a "About Me" page or something.) 

I remember how excited I was when we got our first follower. I'm excited for every new follower :)
Thank you for following us. 

I remember hitting 100 views, then 1,000. (we were going to post about that but....that didn't happen)
Then we hit 5,000 views!!!! Oh my word! 


So we started this blog and we were super excited and motivated! We're going to do all these posts! A bunch of Catholic Stuff. A bunch of girl stuff....

And then we never post anything.

Well, that's not true. I never post anything. Ever. 

And it annoys me since I'm very "A post must go up this day, at this time." 

And I don't post anything. 

(*is trying to fix this*)

Anyway...

This blog is kind of fun, since we're kind of blogging opposites? 

I like scheduled posts that come up at a certain time and on a certain day and Lia posts when ever she gets inspiration. 

I don't like anyone knowing anything about me or my personal life and Lia is a little more open with y'all. 

(And if that Y'all confused you....No. I am not from TX.) 

Every time she says something like "We should do a Q&A post! Or an "This Is What We Do In RL Post!" I kind of tense up like 
"No." 
"The people cannot know."
*small scream*
"No"
"Why"


Yeah, that's what she does :) Kat's an introvert while I am an extrovert. But I wouldn't change her for the world. (Which is a good thing, since I don't change. Classic. Timeless. Really really stubborn) There is no other person I would rather blog with. 

Do I have to say something nice and cutest about Lia now too? 
*blows raspberry*  
She knows she's awesome and means a lot to me and if somebody made her cry I would gladly kill them.

(Of course I would gladly kill a lot of people, so don't mind me)

Thank you all for coming on this journey with us, and I hope we continue to blog for many more years. 

We are also sorry that we drug you along with us all this time. If you carry something sharp in your pocket (or have good teeth) you might be able to sever the ties, but if not we'll be yanking you along for some time yet!

The Little Mermaid -L

What Is You Favorite Movie Genre? 
Action/Spy-K
Marvel! -Lia

What Is Your Favorite Book Genre?
(Dark) Fantasy -K
Fantasy -L

Why Do You Watch Movies?
Why not?(Do not answer that) -K
Movies are cool. I like them -L

Why Do You Read Books?

Because if not, I would go insane. (Insaner?) -K
Same -L

What Is Your Favorite Movie? 
That, my friend, is classified.(In other words, I have no idea) -K
GAH Ummmmmm  I don't know -Lia
What Is Your Favorite Book?
What? You can't ask a book lover that? TREASON!
But, one I would suggest to literally ANYONE is "I'd Tell You That I Love You, But Then I'd Have To Kill You" by Ally Carter. Go read it. So good. -K
NO I CAN'T ANSWER THIS!!! THERE'S TOO MANY -L


What Is Your Least Favorite Movie?
Well, not counting ones that I hate for moral reasons...Actually, I don't hate many movies. Mostly they just annoy me. That is one problem with loving spy stuff. You get super picky during movies. It's like the "That isn't how it was in the book" thing, except it's a "they can't actually do that IRL, because of Law blah blah blah, article blah blah..."
I think I'm going with the Percy Jackson movies. *cringe* -K
YES PERCY JACKSON MOVIES ARE TERRIBLE. DON'T WATCH THEM -L
(i'm starting to realize I have waaaay too many caps in this post)

What Is Your Least Favorite Book?

There are also a lot of books I hate/dislike...but I kind of hate them all the same? Or maybe it's the INTJ thing in me. My brain sees things that it hates (people, places, books) and just kind of goes "Well, we not even going to bother thinking about that." and just kind of wipes it out of out life and we move on.  A book I would say DO NOT READ is Also Known As by Robin Benway. I thought I was going to get something like the Gallagher Girls. Nope. Cardboard characters, bad plot and inaccurate spy stuff. So much gag -K
The Hunger Games -L



When And Where Do You Like To Read? 
Anytime, anywhere. -K (Depends on the mood)

ALL THE TIME -L
What Is Your Favorite Bible Verse?
 Job 39:19-25 (Bet you can't guess what my favorite animals is)

There actually are a couple, but this is the first one to come to mind. (The others are war ones.)
(Though this one kind of is too.) -K
Same -L

What Have You Learned From Blogging? 
Learn? LEARN?- K
Bloggers are some of the nicest people ever and we should all get together and have a big party -L


How Did This Blog Come About? 
I was like, LIA WE SHOULD START A BLOG TOGETHER! And then, months and months later and started the account and called Lia and told her how to log in, etc. The rest is history -K
This is literally what happened. Word for word. XD -L


How Do You Choose What To Write About? 
Well, we have our monthly post, and I try to post some prayer or something on the monthly topic. We also try to do one Dual Post a month that isn't our Month Post. If not, I post whatever comes to mind. (Which normally isn't much, which is why Lia posts the most)-K
I write about what I'm inspired to write or something that I am currently obsessing over. -L







For Lia:

What Is Your Favorite Season? 
Fall!!!!! I am like obsessed with the colors and the chilly weather and big sweaters and just everything about it.

What is Rebellious Writing you may ask?  Let me 'splain. (no, too long, let me sum up.)



We believe
In light
In truth
In goodness
We believe in tomorrow's generation
In creating a better world
Through words
Through books
We believe in fighting for what we believe
We believe in high expectations
That we are capable of anything we set our minds to
We the youth
Believe in Rebellion 
Rebellion for Righteousness
For light
For verity in a world of lies
For beauty in a world of darkness

Friend and Sister, One and the Same

Hello guys!

                                                        R.I.P. Chocolate Mousse


From a recent comment on a post, you guys finally found us out. That's right, I know Catherine from the Rebelling Muse in person. I've seen her face and everything! You guys might remember a post I made in May about my sister graduating college and leaving. That was her. We have been keeping this a secret ever since she started her blog. We finally decided to tell you all. Here are some questions that Catherine came up with that hopefully answer some of your questions!



1. How long have we known each other/how and when did we meet?
Catherine and I have known each other for almost 5 years. She and I were introduced in the car when we picked her up for the first time. It was really awkward for the first couple weeks. When we arrived at church, my mom asked me to show her around. Literally all I was thinking was "this is literally the most awkward conversation I have ever had with anyone" Thankfully we warmed up to each other within a few weeks and now we can't seem to stop talking. Lol.


2. Over the course of our friendship, what are some of the things that Catherine introduced/dragged me into?

Catherine has been fangirling to me about all the Welsh music she has found over the last couple weeks. So now I have a new found appreciation for Welsh music. She also made me watch Rogue One. I am still very upset over that movie's conclusion and I told her so and all she did was laugh her head off at me. Catherine also introduced Spotify to me. I am now obsessed with Spotify. It's great!
Oh Pinterest, how could I forget about Pinterest. She sucked me into that deep dark hole. XD


3. What was the most embarrassing moment that we shared?

My little brother decided to play matchmaker and he wanted my older brother and Catherine to start dating. It was hilarious!!!! Catherine will probably tell you that it was embarrassing for her but from my perspective, it was incredibly funny!


                                                (This is a picture from a trip we took together)


4. Out of all the movies and TV shows that we have watched together, which one was the most memorable?

Definitely When Calls the Heart. We wanted to watch a period drama for Valentine's Day. I realized I never watched it with her. Cue lots of weekends of Catherine coming over and us binge-watching it to death. So. Much. Fangirling.


5. What is the funniest moment that we shared?

We have a mutual friend who has an interesting younger brother. He is really, really, really, really annoying. (yes, all the really's were necessary) He did something to me that was really embarrassing and when I told Catherine about it, she suggested that we handcuff ourselves together to avoid hurting him. We laughed so hard about it, we almost woke up the whole house. 


6. What is one fact about me that I haven't told Catherine yet?

I have no idea what I would do without her.  :)



                                                      (another picture from the same trip)


7. We are constantly scheming, which castle-in-the-air we created was my favorite?

My favorite is that someday we would move in together and have a cute little apartment. I think this one has a good chance of coming true ;)


8. Which Jane Austen Character are we most like?


                                                                     (Me!)


                                                                 (Catherine!)





Ok so some backstory on this question. Catherine and I were talking on the phone while we were typing these out. We decided to take a quiz, Which Anne of Green Gables Character Are You Most Like? WE BOTH GOT ANNE!!!! So we took a which female fictional character are you most like?
We got the same thing again!!!!! We took like 6 quizzes and we got the same thing every time!
So we decided to take the one above. and we finally got someone different. I took it for me and then for her. 


9. What is one thing one of us loves and the other one hates?

I really love Les Miserables and Catherine can't stand it. 


10. Random Facts About Catherine

Catherine is very practical which is good cause she knocks some sense into my crazy ideas. :D

She loves people very deeply

She is one of the funniest people I know

Her laugh is very contagious

She get hiccups if she laughs too hard, it is so funny!


11. What is the sweetest memory of our friendship that I remember?

She is an amazing listener. Every time I complain about my brothers and a certain person I can't get out of my head. She never hangs up on me. :) which this really doesn't answer the sweetest memory question but now I will. Confiding in each other about future plans is one of my favorites.

Hope you enjoy this look into our friendship!

Awkward and Awesome: Besties

 

Awkward: 

  • When she sends prank emails from your account
  • When you live far away from each other
  • Can't have a conversation without anyone eavesdropping
  • When someone makes your friend sad, so you have to kill them and end up getting blood on your new shoes.*

    * Please note: This is hypothetical.
  • Liking the same things DOES have disadvantages.
    Friend: Where did all the chocolate cake go?
    Me: *shrugs* No idea
    Second Friend: It's got crumbs on its jacket-sess!
  • When one is the people person and the other one wants to hide in a corner at social gatherings and hiss at anyone who comes near them. But they want to spend time together, so....
  •  Buying one of your best friends her graduation present..... three days before her graduation.#Procastination #WorstFriendOfTheYear

Awesome: 

  • When you can fan girl to each other
  • Spending time with each other
  • Reading each other's journals (with permission, of course)
  • Sleepovers!
  • Looking at each other and being able to understand what we are thinking
  • Which can lead to random burst of laughter (sometimes in church)
  • Mostly in front of people who then think we are crazy (But everyone thinks we're crazy, so no biggie.)
  • Singing along with musicals and screaming as soon as the villain in a period drama comes on screen.
    "You!"
    *Pillow hits screen*
    *TV falls off wall*
    Me: (smugly) Got 'em
  • Rapid fire texts and google chats
  • Might I just say "Period Drama movie marathons?" The ones where you all pile together like a stack of kittens and get all toasty and warm and your legs go to sleep, but you refuse to move?
