Au Jour Le Jour SS 15

I once took 3 different Myers-Briggs tests and got 3 different answers - in one sitting. In retrospect, it could have been 4 tests. I’ve always felt like a myriad of personalities - a stained glass window with fragments of contrasts, all building to one larger piece. During my Freshman year of college, I was labeled “The Misunderstood” one. During my Senior year of college, my leadership class showed me that I was a mere 1-point off from each of the 4 different leadership colors to fall under. I’m always told it’s hard to categorize my personality. It’s been frustrating at times - imagine being the one to live inside my head, my heart - but for the most part, I don’t mind it. It’s who I am.
I wish I would have kept track of the dates of the various tests that I’ve taken previously. It’d be interesting to know which part of the glass I am during which part of my life. Today, it looks like I’m an ENFJ - only slightly - but an ENFJ at that.
ENFJ - A “benevolent ‘pedagogue’ of humanity.” Ok. What is a pedagogue* and who actually uses the word ‘benevolent.’ I have tremendous power to manipulate others. But ‘manipulate’ as a helper, an enabler. Um, ok. I’m a global learner. I see the bigger picture. I reach quick and efficient conclusions about people and their motives (be careful, I see you). ENFJ’s also have “thinner psychological boundaries than most,” I am at risk of being hurt or abused by less sensitive people. Bitches. My trademark is “the first shall be the last.” I have no idea what that means but I kind of sound like god.
Well-known ENFJ’s - Abraham Lincoln, Ronald Reagan, Barack Obama, Johnny Depp (wtf?) aaand… Oprah. I’ll take it.
*Pedagogue - A teacher, especially a strict or pedantic** one.
**Pedantic - Of or like a pendant***.

On the best advice he was given:
"One woman in Georgia gave some pretty amazing advice. She and and her husband have been married for over 60 years, and after being asked what her best relationship advice would be, she paused and said…
'Don't be afraid to be the one who loves the most.'”
back to when we were once invincible
Happy birthday to my #1 man - the man who taught me how to be silly, find joy, and laugh no matter the circumstance. The big 5-0! Now only a million more to go, daddy! I LOVE YOUUU ❤️❤️❤️
This year, for my birthday, I put together a sports team… And somewhere along the way, fell in love with them. Damn it. Now we’re stuck together. Forever. (And ever and ever and ever and ever.) ❤️ (at #NICOPARTY)
Happy birthday to my wonderful sister, niksong. I’m so thankful and blessed to have an older sister like her, to guide me and to hold me through the tough and fun times. I never get the chance to brag about her, but that’s only because when I do, I can’t seem to stop myself. Without her, I don’t know what my life would be nor do I want to know. She puts a smile on my face when I need it, listens to me when I need to be heard, but most importantly laughs at all my jokes even when they are horrible. She never gives up on me and supports me in whatever I love to do. She’s the best company that you’ll ever need and the perfect partner in crime, for whatever mission you need to accomplish. She is the perfect definition of what an older sister is and I would never trade her with anyone else in the world. I thank God and my parents for bringing me into a world where I have the perfect sister to spend the rest of my life with.
Happy birthday my best friend, role model, and 언니. May you have the most wonderful 24th birthday anyone ever deserves.
I love you.

Hope when you take that jump
You don’t fear the fall
Hope when the water rises
You build a wall
Hope when the crowd screams out
They’re screaming your name
Hope if everybody runs
You choose to stay
Hope that you fall in love
And it hurts so bad
The only way you can know
Is give it all you have
And I hope that you don’t suffer
But take the pain
Hope when the moment comes

You are my ray of sunlight, janelotus, without even knowing you are. I hope you forgive me for sharing your private words with my world; but I hope that when I scroll back into my online history in days, months, years to come, I can stumble onto this and reflect on how much light shines in my life. All the pure, clear, bright rays of sunlight that pour in through the windows, no matter the closed doors.
You are my inspiration, and you push me to be better. (But like #realtalk, just between you and me - who are we kidding, we don’t need to be better when we are the best. #whoops #yolo) Haha! I love you my forever friend, always armed with words that leave behind a blazing trail of yellow sunshine!
