4 Stories: Color
This week's topic for the 4 Stories blog of FreckledNest is color. Yay!
Anyone who knows me even as an acquaintance knows that red is definitely my favorite color. Up until I was about 17, I didn't really have a favorite color. I had always been attracted to warm colors though. Once I moved out of my parent's house, red became the color for me. I have a red backpack, red peacoat, red cups, red towels, red socks, red sweaters...you name it, I probably have it. The funny thing is though, when buying sheets and that sort of thing, I picked like a sage green. I guess subconsciously, I was picking a color to complement my color.
II. Color Personality
The funny thing is too, that when I take those color personality tests you can find anywhere, I always get red. Here is the description: "You have incredible will-power and you are capable of overcoming obstacles that would stop others. You enjoy a pleasant and colorful environment. You are capable of bursts of high energy spontaneity, though generally more "laid back". You are energetic and interested in many areas of life. You are capable of accomplishment when consciously focused and persistent."
III. Taking Notes
Ask anyone. I am not an organized person. I often lose things, only to find them tucked away somewhere when I was attempting to be organized. That is why it is so strange that I am so organized in my note-taking. I have to color coordinate my notes. It seems to help me so much more, especially when I am taking tests. If I am stuck on something, usually I just imagine how the color would have been and I can remember it!
My favorite season is fall. Can you guess why? I LOVE all the colors of fall; the oranges, reds, yellows, browns...it just makes me happy every time I go out and see all the beautiful colors that exist in nature! Also, all the earthy smells too...it's just a great season!
