Personality Test – You Are An Inventor

A few weeks ago, one of my co-workers discovered a really simple personality test online and made everyone do it. To be honest, it looked pretty much like a website that gives your computer a virus or something and it was so simple and unprofessional that never in a million years I would have thought that the result would be so incredibly accurate.

Shadows MOMA New York

I was classified as an INVENTOR.

acts extroverted, thinks theoretical, interacts hard, lives spontaneously, emotionally resistant

Characteristics: adventurous, chaotic, direct, dominant, hardheaded, open for experiments, social, imaginative, outgoing, creative, critical, laid-back, confident, independent, unconstrained, unconventional, playful, bold

Inventors direct their energy outwards, toward other people and activities. You are open for new things and mental activities, you firmly  represent your interests in front of others, get distracted easily and are emotionally balanced.

Inventors are full of ideas, thoughts and plans, and they don’t hesitate to voice them or give them a try. Your curiosity is extremely strong. You can hardly resist possible rewards or interesting activities and you also let the daily temptations of life easily attract you. You constantly strive for action, excitement and that certain kick, you look for sociability and contact with other people, because those moments make you extremely happy. Also, you openly show your thoughts and feelings to others.

Your hobbies and interests are very versatile. While always being curious for new or extraordinary ideas and opinions, you like to give creative things a try, engage in intellectual games and philosophical thoughts, and you have a lively and rich imagination. You’re not afraid of complex or unconventional theories and things, instead, you are highly interested in the fantastic and unusual. Swimming against the current brings you joy and you don’t mind being a bit offensive.

When dealing with other people you are at ease, without inhibition, open and outgoing. You are able to vigorously represent and enforce your ideas and you don’t let the disapproval of others irritate you. Often, a result that you’re satisfied with, is more important to you than having good relationships with everyone. You’re good at dealing with stress and you hardly let negative emotions get to you. However, if it does happen, you recover quickly. In general, you are confident, relaxed and optimistic, most of the time.

At work, you’re not always completely precise and always like to do a thousand things, at once. In general, you need a lot of variety, you often jump from one thing to another and it’s difficult for you to completely focus on long-term goals because you constantly discover something new or adventurous. Therefore, it never gets boring with you and you’re great at spontaneously solving problems. Sometimes you rush into something head over heals, without giving it a lot of thought and are a bit insensitive toward your surrounding.

You are very willing to take high risks. Possible problems or dangers don’t really bother you. You don’t always act reasonable, instead you act according to what momentarily tickles your fancies and sounds promising. That’s why you engage in vague, bold and adventurous things, try lots of new things and you don’t always care what others think about it. One could call you a “visionary” because you have so many creative and innovative ideas and you’re not afraid to try them, even if you don’t always bring your plans to an end. There is hardly anything you’re not interested in and that you wouldn’t like to try. You’re clearly the prototype of inventors, explorers and adventurers.

Fictional characters: Jack Sparrow, Bugs Bunny, Don Quixote, Krusty the Clown, Dr. House

Famous people: Thomas Edison (inventor), Madonna (popstar), Alice Schwarzer (feminist), Oliver Pocher (entertainer), Sacha Baron Cohen (comedian), Bill Clinton (former US President), Robert Downey Jr. (actor), Joko Winterscheidt (host), Uri Geller (magician), Brad Pitt (actor), John Malkovich (actor), Jamie Lee Curtis (actress), Walt Disney (Disney-founder), Falco (popstar), John F. Kennedy (former US President), Benjamin Franklin (historic person), Leonardo da Vinci (artist)

So yeah, I can definitely see myself as this person. I’m always restless and have a million ideas in my head. I never saw myself doing the same thing every single day of my life and I get bored really easily. It can be annoying sometimes but in general, I think being interested in and open for a lot of different things is a good quality to have. I love adventures but even though I may not always show it, it’s not like I don’t get nervous or scared. I just try to push my fears aside and just do it. But you know what I was happy about most? Seeing Walt Disney on the list of famous people that go with all these characteristics. I mean, he’s one of my heroes for creating something so wonderful, that so many generations feel magical and perfectly entertained. I doubt that I can create something as fantastic as the world of Disney, but creativity is definitely inside of me and I try to always make the best of it.

I would say that I’m not always as optimistic as this test thought I was because I like to be on the realistic side of things, but that doesn’t mean I don’t dream. However, if it got one thing right: I really don’t give a damn about what other people think and I definitely come off as really strong, a lot. Just for the record, I am also very emotional, sensitive and I have a very big heart. I just don’t take shit from anyone. Oh, and I definitely wish I was a little more spontaneous and I do overthink a lot.

Great Quotes By Great Women

Happy International Women’s Day! To all women out there: You are fierce, you are beautiful, you are important and I am proud to be one of you. Although I think it’s important to celebrate women every day, I felt like putting together a list of quotes by talented, beautiful, smart and strong women who have inspired females everywhere.

We can do it

If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun. — Katharine Hepburn

A lot of people are afraid to say what they want. That’s why they don’t get what they want. — Madonna

Always be a first-rate version of yourself instead of a second-rate version of somebody else. — Judy Garland

Some women choose to follow men, and some women choose to follow their dreams. If you’re wondering which way to go, remember that your career will never wake up and tell you that it doesn’t love you anymore. — Lady Gaga

I keep waiting to meet a man who has more balls than I do. — Salma Hayek

The best protection any woman can have is courage. — Elizabeth Cady Stanton

People think at the end of the day that a man is the only answer [to fulfillment]. Actually a job is better for me. — Princess Diana

In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.” — Coco Chanel

If you want something said, ask a man. If you want something done, ask a woman. — Margaret Thatcher

Human rights are women’s rights, and women’s rights are human rights. Let us not forget that among those rights are the right to speak freely – and the right to be heard. — Hillary Clinton

Let’s be very clear: Strong men – men who are truly role models – don’t need to put down women to make themselves feel powerful. People who are truly strong lift others up. People who are truly powerful bring others together. — Michelle Obama

Women have to work much harder to make it in this world. It really pisses me off that women don’t get the same opportunities as men do, or money for that matter. Because lets face it, money gives men the power to run the show. It gives men the power to define our values and to define what’s sexy and what’s feminine and that’s bullshit. At the end of the day, it’s not about equal rights, it’s about how we think. We have to reshape our own perception of how we view ourselves. — Beyoncé

I’m tough, I’m ambitious, and I know exactly what I want. If that makes me a bitch, okay. — Madonna

Figure out who are you separate from your family, and the man or woman you’re in a relationship with. Find who you are in this world and what you need to feel good alone. I think that’s the most important thing in life. Find a sense of self. With that, you can do anything else. — Angelina Jolie

I just love bossy women. I could be around them all day. To me, bossy is not a pejorative term at all. It means somebody’s passionate and engaged and ambitious and doesn’t mind learning. — Amy Poehler

It is better to be looked over than overlooked.” — Mae West

There are going to be people along the way who will try to undercut your success… but if you just focus on the work and you don’t let those people sidetrack you, someday when you get where you’re going… you’ll know that it was you and the people who love you that put you there.  — Taylor Swift

The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud. — Coco Chanel

I have learned over the years that when one’s mind is made up, this diminishes fear; knowing what must be done does away with fear. — Rosa Parks

I had two options. One was to remain silent and never to speak and then to be killed by the terrorists. The second option was to speak up for my rights and then die. And I chose the second one.”  — Malala Yousafzai

It’s not the absence of fear, it’s overcoming it. Sometimes you’ve got to blast through and have faith. — Emma Watson

If you just set out to be liked, you would be prepared to compromise on anything at any time, and you would achieve nothing. — Margaret Thatcher

A feminist is a person who believes in the power of women just as much as they believe in the power of anyone else. It’s equality, it’s fairness, and I think it’s a great thing to be a part of. — Zendaya

Step out of the history that is holding you back. Step into the new story you are willing to create. — Oprah Winfrey

We teach girls to shrink themselves, to make themselves smaller. We say to girls: ‘You can have ambition, but not too much. You should aim to be successful, but not too successful. Otherwise, you will threaten the man.’ Because I am female, I am expected to aspire to marriage. I am expected to make my life choices, always keeping in mind that marriage is the most important. Now, marriage can be a source of joy and love and mutual support, but why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage and we don’t teach boys the same? — Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities. — J.K Rowling

If your actions create a legacy that inspires others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, then, you are an excellent leader. — Dolly Parton

If I was your girlfriend…

Isn’t this rich coming from someone whose been single for most of her 20s? But that doesn’t mean I don’t know what I want and especially what I don’t want. I also know in what areas I can be highly difficult and I have no problem with being upfront about it. I don’t care if I seem like a bitch because some guy out there will be able to handle it. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a very loving person but being with someone is hard work, especially when you’ve never had a healthy relationship before. I seriously don’t know what it’s like so it would be interesting to find out. However, I have a feeling that I’m one of these people who can only manage complicated and never normal. But that’s ok too. Anyway, there are just some things that I’m sure of, although I am of course aware that any of these things could change, depending on the person I end up dating. I can’t imagine it but you never know. So here is what you’ll get yourself into when you’re dating me. (Man-repeller should me a job.) But you be the judge if I seem like a horrible girlfriend or not.

The 90s Tag

I thought it was  about time to do another tag post. Some Bloggers love them, some hate them, but  I don’t mind answering a few questions about myself. That’s the kind of person I am, haha. It’s been quite a while since I found this super fun tag on Underland to Wonderland blog and since I will be forever obsessed with the 90s, I had to save it for later.

I also asked my Twitter followers if they want to be tagged and answer these questions, as well. Therefore, I tag Single Girl VegasEleanor May, Ramblings of Another Uni Graduate and Thoughts From Jasmine and I’m looking forward to their answers.

The 90s Tag

1. Favorite Disney Film?
Pocahontas. Although I have to admit that it’s not my absolute number one Disney movies from the 90s, it’s the one I loved most when I was actually in the 90s. When Pocahontas came out, I was living in America and the States were just so much more crazy about Disney than Germany ever will be. Pocahontas is still an absolute goddess to me and the soundtrack was the first CD I ever bought. I will forever love listening to it. I had a sweatshirt, pillow, backpack, binder, Barbie, game, stickers, cards and even a barking Percy stuffed animal which I still have today.

2. Favorite Music Artist?
Backstreet Boys, Spice Girls. I could never choose between these two fabulous bands. The Spice Girls were just amazing and did a lot for Girl Power. They were talented, wild and not afraid of anything. I still freak out whenever their songs come on and I will never get enough of watching Spice World. And what can I say about the Backstreet Boys. Nick Carter was my ultimate 90s crush and I still have a pillow with his face on it. (It’s actually my third one cause I can’t sleep without it.) I will forever love their music and I was so happy when I got to see them in 2014 because they still got it goin’ on. From both bands, I had tons of merchandize and their CD’s were some of my first ones to buy. And as the true 90s kid (and hoarder) I am, I still have most of it.

3. Favorite Sweets?
I spent some years of my childhood in the US and boy was the candy over there so much better. Except for the chocolate, of course. Does anyone remember Dunkaroos? How can they not make them anymore?! Kangaroo crackers and some kind of funfetti spread should never go out of style. Also sharks or fruit roll ups were very high on my list.

4. Favorite Game? (Board game / school game)
Definitely Dream Phone or Candyland. And I also had some kind of Pocahontas board game, which I loved to play, as well. Dream Phone was just so cool. The ultimate game to find out who your crush is? I’m sure everyone who played still knows exactly how their favorite guy looked like. I still want to re-buy it but it’s pretty expensive on Ebay and I don’t want one where some parts are missing. That reminds me, I need to check the offers. And Candyland was just always a really cute game. I bought a newer version two years ago and it’s still fun. A little less exciting but still fun and great to play with kids. I also remember my brother and me playing a card game called Speed but I don’t exactly know how to play it, anymore. I may have to google that.

Candyland

5. Favorite McDonalds ‘Happy Meal’ Toy?
Definitely Power Rangers. I’m forever sad that I don’t have these things, anymore. The yellow and pink megazord parts with the rangers were awesome and also the belt buckles and just all of it. And yes, they are waiting on my Ebay list. However, what I do still have is a 101 Dalmatians collection which is super cute. Did I mention that I’m a hoarder?

6. Favorite Book?
The Babysitters Club books were pretty cute and I just read one of them, last year. Yup, I’m a proper adult. I have some others that I still have and they were my first English books. I can’t remember having a ton of books though, probably because I couldn’t properly read in English yet, when we were living in the States and I went to a German school. I definitely loved Pipi Longstocking and some other books that are considered classics in Germany. But the BSC was just really cool. Today, I have like half a library in my room so my love for books definitely increased a lot.

7. Favorite Clothing Store?
I wasn’t really at an age where I could just go to the mall by myself and buy fancy clothes. I did love going to the mall with my parents though, but I can’t remember having a favorite store. We definitely loved Wal-Mart because it was just such a cool store and another store called PX, which was located on the Army base, so I don’t know if everyone knows it. Those are actually the only stores I really can remember that also had clothes. The shopping madness started more in the 00’s.

8. Favorite TV Show?
This is by far the hardest question you could ever ask me about the 90s. Let’s be real, TV back then was just so much better and whenever there is some 90s show on TV, I watch it. Some of them have luckily been released on DVD and of course I bought some of them. YouTube is also a great source and of course your memories. I loved Clarissa, Ocean Girl, Rugrats, Power Rangers, Barney and many, many more. If you really want to go down memory lane, check out my post with 30 TV shows from the 90s and another one with 30 more. That will give you good insight into which shows I loved. I’d say most of them.

9. What Show Would You Watch After School?
Unfortunately, I don’t know exactly at what time these shows were running. However, I do remember that in Germany, I often watched Sailor Moon because it was on at like 2 or 3 PM.

Pocahontas

10. What Was Your Favorite 90s Game Show?
I have know idea because I can’t really remember watching them as a child. Or maybe I’m just confused. Not sure if Wheel of Fortune was a 90s show but I definitely liked that. I’m pretty sure I’m more into them now as I was as a kid, though.

11. Did You Own A Virtual Pet? (Cyberpet, Tamagotchi etc)
Yes, I had a Tamagotchi and I’m sure my grandma bought it for me. She always bought me everything. If I remember correctly, some kids from my class had them and were playing with it some afternoon. I mean, I couldn’t just not have one, so of course I did what every normal human being would and should do. BUY ONE FAST! I still have a fake one that works but I get bored pretty quickly. I’m tempted to buy an original, though. I don’t think anyone at work would mind.

12. Favorite Video Game and System To Play On?
My Gameboy was amazing. It was huge and grey and simply awesome. Some of my favorite games were definitely Yogi Bear, Pacman, Tetris, Super Mario and of course, as you can imagine, I still have most of them and occasionally play. I’m just truly stuck in the 90s. Times were just so much more fun and I would give a lot for being a kid again. My childhood was pretty damn cool.

13. Weirdest Fashion Trend?
The thing is, a few years later, you’ll find everything weird from a certain time. I would much rather wear my 90s stuff than my 00’s things, though. Fashion just changes so much and if I know one thing for sure, it all comes back at some point. I wore lots of bike shorts and neon colors. I even matched with my brother and always wore socks in sandals. Thanks, mom. But what will forever be stuck in my head were those Adidas button up pants, where everyone had fun with pranking each other. Yes, the ones the Kardashians are bringing back. If you’re younger and thought Kim K was the inventor of this amazingness, forget about it. Also, Buffalo platform shoes. Spice Girls style forever!

Skipper BArbie

14. Favorite Toy?
I was obsessed with my Barbie‘s. I had a big house, a few cars, horses and a ton of clothes. When my mom took me to the store to reward me for doing good in school or something, I always chose Barbie. It was usually the aisle I spent the most time in at Wal-Mart or Toys R Us. Being a true girly-girl, I also enjoyed Polly Pocket, Doodle Bear, Baby Tumbles, Barbie, Barbie and Barbie.

15. Favorite Nickelodeon Show?
Again, how could I ever choose? I absolutely loved Clarissa Explains It All and I still do. She was so cool and I still think she’s a great role-model. Rugrats or Doug were some of my favorites, as well.

Goodbye February 2017

Goodbye February,

and hello March, wonderful month of spring. Although from looking outside the window, I’m not really seeing it yet. Yesterday, we even had snow again and I won’t fully believe in spring until May. I definitely wouldn’t mind living in a warmer country. But enough about the weather, I want to talk about how February went.

Good. Yes, you read that right. For once, I’m declaring a past month as good. What the hell is wrong with me you ask? Well, I guess I’m kinda getting my life together and it was about damn time. I feel like I got used to working 9-5, although I will never be a major fan. Maybe it’s also because in the middle of the month, I switched locations and now I’m were I wanted to be, in the first place. I have a lot less commute and just in general a lot less stress. I also have my own office, which I definitely like. I can hear loud music, I don’t annoy anyone with my coughing etc. and I have my own wall I can decorate. I know, priorities, right? I get along with everyone and so far, I’ve done a good job. Go me! It just really makes you feel good about yourself when you start a new job and feel how it’s getting better and better. And I get to write about Germany’s Next Topmodel every week, which I think is pretty cool.

Anyway, February was definitely a busy month. There was not a day where I didn’t do anything. What the hell has my life become? Yup, as hard as I try, I’m not super lazy anymore. I leave the house a lot more and pretty much hung out with friends every weekend, and although I sometimes miss just doing nothing all day long, it’s better to be active. I can’t believe this is coming from me – Queen of laziness. But I guess a daily routine does work wonders.

Some of my highlights included the yearly fashion show for bridal and evening gowns that I always enjoy doing. Can’t believe it’s been nine years. Looking at the pictures though, I can totally see some major changes. I’m getting old. Speaking of, I turned 29 and the day itself was just not good, at all. But what can you expect from a Monday? I celebrated with some friends the weekend after and we had a fun brunch. And then a friend did the same, a week after. A few years ago, we would’ve thrown crazy parties and now it’s brunch at 10 am on a Sunday, where everyone is speaking about kids, houses, weddings etc. Except for me, of course, since I have nothing really to contribute to that. I always call it the housewife-channel because it’s exactly what it is.

I also went to the movies, photographed a wedding and did lots of tanning at the salon. You wouldn’t believe the craziness of my freckles. But I only go once a week and it just feels good. I think those were pretty much the highlights. Sure, nothing over the top but still a nice month. And I got lots of cute presents so that’s always super nice. I also requested some vacation days for April and I hope that I can visit one of my au pair besties in Denmark. Should that not work out, I’ll aim for London and maybe meet with some blogger friends. Either way, I’m making sure I’ll go somewhere because I really miss travelling and I need new pictures for Instagram.

So, my February was good and I hope that March will be, as well. Or just the whole year for that matter. I’m looking forward to exciting things and I actually feel ready for them to happen. I could just use a little more sunshine to go with everything and I’m sure I’m not the only one. Hope you all have a great month, beautiful people.

Tons of love,
Hailey

When I Match On Tinder

To be honest, I thought I was through with Tinder, a little while ago. I wasn’t even considering actually meeting with people and just laughed my butt off swiping from face to face. But now that I pretty much have my life a lot more in order than last year, I thought I’ll just give it another shot. The thing is, I don’t even know what I want, since I’m not really a hook-up kind of girl but I also have major relationship issues so yeah, why the hell do I even bother? Because I decided to let life surprise me. Since I never really happen to meet people in real life, why the hell not reinstall the app?! And yes, I know there are a lot more serious apps to use but I don’t know. I’m not the person who wants to get matched with someone based on answers to questions like sunrise or sunset? Or create a major dating profile or whatever else you have to do on all these other options. I have commitment issues so I’ll just start with Tinder. And if they just want to hook up and I don’t, I can always just say goodbye.

So anyway, once in a while it happens that I match with someone. I guess the problem is that from 300 guys, I swipe right on like five of them. Yes, that’s the superficial, self-sabotaging moron I can be. But whatever. I want to like someone’s face and I don’t see that being a bad thing. That doesn’t mean that a pretty face is all that matters. So yeah, sometimes matches happen and this is just a little insight into my crazy mind. I know, I’m weird but that’s ok.

Boys Lie

*swipes right on like five out of 300 guys*

Ha, another match.

Mmmm, which of these matches do I actually pay attention to?

I should probably just delete them all.

No, you wanted to stop being a coward.

Not all men are terrible idiots. Right? RIIIIGHT???

Ok, here we go.

*picks the one who seems like he likes to travel but who didn’t overdo it with his choice of pics*

Do I text him?

Why isn’t he texting me?

I’m a grown-ass woman, I can text him.

What do I write?

Shit, this is so hard.

Ok, think, think, think…

Maybe just a hello?

Emoji, or no emoji, that is the question.

What the hell, the worst that can happen is him ignoring me.

I’ve been perfectly single for years, I don’t need anyone.

Ok, calm down and just do it.

MESSAGE SENT!

Oh God, oh God, oh God.

Damn, I wish I was more chill.

He texted back, ladies and gentlemen, he texted back.

I’m such a pro at this.

And my pictures look pretty good.

He likeeees me.

Calm down, moron. Remember about not actually caring?

This is not going bad.

Travels – always a good topic.

But how long will it last until he get’s all weird and only wants sex?

Does he only want sex?

How do I find out if he only wants sex?

No, I can’t just ask him.

What if he’s actually nice?

Why do I even bother, I’ll probably be bored by tomorrow, anyway.

Wow, a few hours later and I’m still not bored.

How is this even possible?

Let me go back through his pictures and see if I’m actually into him.

Stop being a superficial bitch and give him a chance.

Man, texting with this app is annoying.

Do I ask if we can exchange numbers?

I hate giving out my number.

He seems nice, though.

I gave him my number.

Dude, why aren’t you texting me like IMMEDIATELY???

*has minor panic attack*

Ah, here we go.

Oh fantastic, he wants pictures.

Why do guys always ask for pictures?

You ain’t getting nudes, hun.

Ok, he’s sending some, as well. Fully clothed from some travel adventures. Acceptable.

*Looks for the prettiest pictures her phone has to offer*

Still no major warning signs.

Should I check his spelling? Punctuation? Grammar?

STOP SABOTAGING IT EVERY SINGLE TIME!!!

Would I want to go out with him?

Wow, I can actually see myself going out with him.

How can we have so much in common?

Is this even possible?

Nobody who knows me is gonna believe this.

I need to stalk him online to find something I can’t live with.

How can I not find anything?

*looks through his pictures for the millionth time*

He’s definitely not fully my type.

I still kinda like him.

*hears Rihanna’s lyrics in her head*

♪ On the first page of our story
The future seemed so bright
Then this thing turned out so evil
I don’t know why I’m still surprised ♪

SHUT UP! SHUT UP! SHUT UP!

I have to stop doing this.

I mean, it’s not like I’m in love or anything.

For once just CHILL.

Yes, chill. I can do that.
