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?

10 Things I Learned Getting My Associate’s Degree (Homeschool version)

Heyo everyone! It’s been a long while and I do apologize about that! Tonight I’m working on planning out an actual blogging schedule as I want to focus more on blogging this year.

Anyway, tonight I decided to share with you ten things I learned getting my associate’s degree. As someone who was home-schooled college was….different. Very, very different. So without further ado..

  1. The first thing I learned was that I didn’t like the whole “having to use a really small desk” thing. I was used to being able to spread out when doing school work, and then had to learn how to keep my books, notepad, binder, and pencils on the same desk. Preferably without them falling off…which happened a lot.
  2. That I really should’ve gone and walked around in the buildings that I would have classes in. It would’ve helped a lot instead of spending time running around like a maniac trying to find my classroom!
  3. If you sit in the front of the class you will get called on….a lot. I quickly learned to sit more in the middle of the room!
  4. Don’t carry all the books at the same time, just carry what you will need!
  5. Two words- roll. call. I thought that was just a grade school thing. Nope, colleges do roll call too.
  6. Colleges have a lot of people….a lot of people. I was the only person in my graduating class- because I was home-schooled…get it? Anyway, I knew that there were going to be a lot of people, but I didn’t think that there would be that many!
  7. College professors are actually kinda cool. For some reason I thought they would be a bit boring, but I had some really awesome professors! Two of them encouraged me to go into the history field as well. So thank-you Mrs. Shoup and Mr. Cox!
  8. Your college professors want to see you succeed. When they say you can come by their office anytime and they’ll help you, they honestly mean it. I had a really awesome college algebra teacher, and I passed that class because I went to her office for help. Not only do you get to have that one on one teaching time, but you also get to know your professors more.
  9. Study…study…study. You need all the study time you can get!
  10. The time goes by quickly! Those two years didn’t feel like two years! One semester felt like it lasted maybe two months! Since it goes by so fast make sure you don’t waste your time on the little stuff, but focus on the important things.

What are some things you learned when getting your associate’s degree?
