Pi Day Was like Five Days Ago And I Baked A Pie Last Night Which Is Only Semi-Timely
The gag is that time is fake though am I right ladies!!!!! So it was super timely. I actually baked a strawberry pie for a brunch earlier this morning and turns out it was a hit. I have like two more slices left so I'm sure I'll end up feeding it to Amitav or something. I only mention Amitav because it seems like whenever I bake pies he's mysteriously busy beyond belief or in colonial America so idk weird correlation between the two. Would that be an interesting plot for a story? Me, an avid pie baker and Amitav, cursed to never have time to eat the pies I bake when I bake them which is all the time therefore he's just always busy when I bake pies? I'm gonna try and mentally save that for a new segment. Number Amar is still alive we just haven't met in a while so it's tough. Perhaps the delicate dance between Amitav and my pies will be a more relevant story to flesh out. This post is deviating way more than I thought it would honestly I just started fucking sprinting with this idea huh.
Anyway we all know that the stars don't lie to you but since I believe all personality tests are the end all be all of who I am, when I ran across a test about which temperament I am I had to take it. I was obligated to. So, to preface for those who are unfamiliar with the four temperaments, it's basically this idea that there are four fundamental personality types: choleric, melancholic, phlegmatic, and sanguine. This is also related the the four body fluids/humorism you know with the blood, yellow bile, black bile, and phlegm thing? Anyway, more importantly, I took a quiz and I got phlegmatic and let me tell you, that description clocked me. Basically, the phlegmatic temperament is fundamentally relaxed and quiet, so the way this looks can range from warmly attentive to lazily sluggish which is so true. They know me. They really do. They tend to be content with themselves and are kind like binch tell me more yes that's me. Obviously because they are not the stars they are not all knowing and thus the description was only a paragraph. So in this same moment, I also ran into another personality test which is the Nine Personality Types of the Enneagram. Again, the obligation to have these tests tell me everything there is to know about myself was prevalent so I took another quiz and got my scores. I am a Type 2 and Type 5 which both had my highest score on the test. Type is The Helper, the caring, nurturing type and Type 5 is the The Thinker, the perceptive, cerebral type. Like I love that. I love my combination. The description for the Thinker is less good than the Helper and I think a lot of my helper traits counteract some of the thinker traits but it's called the duality of man and I love the Enneagram so it's fine. I actually just think I like being the helper. I wonder if I didn't score as high on the think if I would feel bad? Maybe when I was in high school when the idea of being smart was really important but I think I weigh my own intelligence so much less in my life than when I did before. Idk like I remember getting placed into Ravenclaw for Pottermore lmao and like being kind of keen on Ravenclaw but if anything I'd love to be Hufflepuff. Idk I'm not really that into Harry Potter like it's cool, I read the books except for the last one but idk just as an example of the kind of emphasis I placed on intelligence before. I think I've definitely changed in the way I value things and would much rather find my kindness and generosity more important to keep up. This is sappy. I like baking pies though so I feel like that's a tell as far as who I am as a person. Anyway, here are some links to these personality tests so you can find out if you're phlegm or not.
Yesterday I was washing dishes and had a really funny idea for a topic and I was supposed to write it while I wait to get my haircut but fuckin................. just did not write while I waited for five minutes and like did not write it down either like a dumbass like what's the point of dedicating a whole page in my bullet journal to writing ideas if I only use it after the fact. Jk, I don't write ideas down that I've already written but I feel like my shitty ideas go in there? No, that's not the right way to put it either. I think it's more like at the time they're good ideas and if I were to start writing immediately I would use them because I have like snippets of the paragraph I would want to include like I would have at least one zinger thought out of before putting it on paper but because I don't start writing immediately like I should have I lose said zingers, many times I'm losing multiple hit jokes, ladies, it's a travesty. So I'm pretty bummed right now because I had like extensive thoughts on it but I just can't remember. My hair looks good again I guess? I hate that my hair grows out so fast it's just wild that like it just doesn't stop growing. Its lack of consciousness plagues me because it doesn't realize when it looks good and when it looks bad and if it knew it looked bad it would like not do that obviously and I'd be okay. I think consciousness is the wrong word I don't want to be able to talk to my hair but in the sense that it's like a plant who knows what conditions it wants to be in and thus like begins to grow towards the sun, phototropism you know? But for hair it'd be like optimizing how good it looks as opposed to sun exposure. When will the human genome make another evolutionary leap so that I don't have to visit the barber every three or four weeks?
Anyway, I wrote this because I have a five page paper due Tuesday for that diversity class and I think I'm gonna write about socioeconomic diversity so that'll be good but I'm not in the mood to find scholarly articles regarding socioeconomic diversity in higher education so that's tough. But as always, stay tuned for the drama of it all.
