6. Should music and/or art be part of a well rounded education?
Absolutely!!! It has been studied and found that learning to read music or play an instrument excel in other academic areas as well. My daughter the artist has a better frame of mind when she is doing art or creating. She is more relaxed and easy going. When she is kept from her creativity by work or other stuff going on in her life, she can get depressed and anxious. I think some people are just hard-wired that way.
7. What social situations make you flustered or nervous?
I get really nervous and/or embarrassed when receiving recognition for something I've done whether it is good or bad. I've been in both situations. I don't like to go to the hairdressers, 'cause the focus is on me. I don't like "awards" where the focus is on me. I've been asked to speak at certain times and even though I spent all those years teaching and loved it so, I still get almost sick to my stomach when I have to get up in front of my peers. It is getting better as I get older, but still panics me.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
My random thoughts at this time are really in the forms of prayers. Prayers for a young girl who is practically homeless and I have no way of helping, prayers for a friend who just had surgery on her throat and I can't go visit till Thursday, prayers for my daughters and their boys, prayers for our house that it will somehow get together before next winter and I won't have to live in a camper unless I want to actually go camping. My mind is flooded with thoughts, but no answers, so I just pray about them. What else is there to do? I'm waiting for clear direction which I know will come eventually, but the waiting is not fun.
