Chloe’ Mae’s Coffee Corner Talks Part 10

Hello everyone! I hope you’re all doing well on this Wednesday afternoon! I’m writing this from my new desk at my new job….yes I have a new job!

A little over a month ago I quit dispatching and started working at the local university as an administrative assistant. At my former job I sat at a desk for 12 hours, worked a crazy rotating shift, and didn’t have a set schedule that I liked. I do miss working with my former work family, they were some of the best!

At my new job I have the freedom to move around…..a lot! The place I’m working at hosts events all the time- there’s hardly ever a dull moment around here! I also work 8-5 Monday – Friday (unless there’s an event I need to be present for) which is a plus. The thing I’m most excited about is the fact that I get to go home and do stuff. I used to come home, eat something, maybe do some school work and then go to bed. I’m able to do a lot more before going to bed…..and I’ve usually go to bed around 10 pm now. For those that know me that’s kind of a crazy deal right there, haha.

The past two days after work I’ve spent sealing the steps on my tiny house. It’s something that’s been waay over due. I purchased a sealer that had a tint to it so it sealed and stained the steps at once. Kill two birds with one stone! Eventually I’m going to seal/stain the entire porch, but with spring storms coming in this week my main focus was on the steps.

This is what the steps looked like before I started using the tinted sealer.

A “during” photo.

This is what the steps look like now! You can see a bit of the railings in this post as well. I’m quite pleased with the way they’ve turned out and can’t wait to get the rest of the porch sealed!

This is the brand and type of tinted sealer I went with, it does an amazing job! Although I do recommend wearing gloves while applying this. I wore gloves the first day and none the second and let me just give you a heads up- this stain takes a bit to come off. I still have some on my hands, haha!

Have a good night!

Chloe’ Mae’s Coffee Corner Talks Part 9- Christmas Holiday

For Christmas last year the family and I went to one of my favorite places on earth- Florida!!

It was so nice to get away for the Christmas season, and even nicer that we were able to go to the beach! While it was colder back home, we all enjoyed 60 degree weather, the beach, the ocean, and the fact that we could wear shorts in December!

Along with the trips to the Naval Aviation museum, beaches, and flea markets we were able to drive around the University of West Florida campus. I hope to transfer there after I finish my bachelors degree!

The view from our condo’s balcony! It was so peaceful to sit and listen to the waves crash onto the shore.

The pier on one of the beaches. Every time we go to this particular beach I end up taking so many pictures of the pier……then change my cover photo on Facebook to one of the pictures of said pier. (:

The above picture was my favorite of the pier…and the picture I picked for my cover photo!

The ‘Pensacola Beach’ beach ball shaped water tower is in the background of this picture. It always amazes me how white the sand is and how blue the sky is at the beach!

The ocean was so gorgeous on Christmas Eve, what better place to be?

Our itty bitty sandman….it was A LOT harder to build than I initially thought. My sister and I accidentally destroyed the first sandman while attempting to fix it. Dad ended up making this one…good job Dad!

My sister bought me this adorable turtle bracelet! I absolutely LOVE turtles! It was by far my most favorite gift. (:

Our Christmas bauble cake. It was almost too cute to eat! (;

On one of the last days of our holiday the sister and I went for a walk along the coast of the bay behind our condo. I enjoyed all the one on one time we got to spend together.

A gorgeous hibiscus flower. Usually I don’t care for the color orange, but I think that in this case it’s just lovely.

The Christmas tree at the boardwalk, I loved the blue ornaments and the starfish!

Of course we went back to the Naval Aviation Museum while we were there! It was our second time going and it was amazing. You could probably go every day that the museum is open and see something new every time!

I know that this post is a couple months late, but I wanted to share a few of my favorite photos from our trip. How did you spend your Christmas holiday?

What is My Personality Type?

So I’ve always been slightly curious about these “personality type quizzes” that are always going around. I’ve also wondered two things:

  1. Who on earth came up with them
  2. What is it and what does it mean

I had some free time today and thought why not look into them and take one?

Personality Type- noun (Psychology)

a collection of personality traits that are thought to occur together consistently, especially as determined by a certain pattern or responses to a personality inventory.

“The MBTI questionnaire, first published in 1943, was originally developed in the United States by Katharine Cook Briggs and her daughter Isabel Briggs Myers. Katharine Briggs was inspired to start researching personality type theory when she first met Isabel’s future husband, Clarence Myers.” This can be found here.

So I took a test from this site and was given ISTP as my personality type.

It breaks down as this:

Introvert- 44%

Sensing- 28%

Thinking- 22%

Perceiving- 3%

This means that I have a moderate preference of Introversion over Extraversion. A moderate preference of Sensing over Intuition. Then a slight preference of Thinking over Feeling. Lastly I have marginal to no preference of Perceiving over Judging.

I’m not really 100% sure on my results, but that’s what I ended up getting. In fact I’m about 90% this isn’t exactly true to how I think I really am, but it was interesting taking this test.

Have you ever taken a Personality Test and if you have, what results did you get?
