On the other hand, spontanaity feels fun most of the time, until the activity is over and it's time to go home and clean up...So I did have a fun time finding google images of spontaneity. The picture above is called the spontaneous picnic dress. It looks pretty hilarious to me. The picture below is from the movie Enchanted. I love how "realistic" the curtain cut-outs are.
In summary, I pressed Stephen to choose one side of the continuum that he would rather live with. After much thought, and after trying to choose the middle, he went with the spontaneous side. Should I be surprised? No. Am I on that side of the spectrum? No. Should I be? Maybe I could give up some of my ground, but something inside of me totally functions well with organization and routine and predictability, but I don't think I'm over-the-top with it either...or am I?
The truth is, I totally admire things about both kinds of personalities. I know I should let myself be more open minded and spontaneous. However, I really envy those people who appear to really be "together" and have like zero clutter areas in their homes, or "a place for everything." The truth is, I really wish my house would be mostly clean most of the time on most days of the week. Then again, chasing this unrealistic ideal can really drive a person crazy! I'm curious to know what the readers think about this, or where people think they fall on the spectrum? P.S. Some of you I already know are dying to echo in with Brooklyn, Stephen, my mom, my sister, and most people that know me really well by telling me to just RELAX! But please, try not to be too harsh! :) I will try to blame some of the fault of my ultra-organization aspirations to my teaching background.
