Finding our niche in life

David has told me not to write about stuff that happens at his office, so I shall obey his wish.  My lips are sealed.

Okay.  So what should I write about today?  That’s a funny question, as it seems that I am never at a loss for words.  I just love to write, and blogging is the perfect medium for me.  I have also written columns for the local newspapers, commentaries for the radio, and three books.  Do you enjoy writing, too?

I just wish I were better at math.  It takes me forever to calculate numbers in my brain, whereas it takes David only a few seconds.  Maria also is a math whiz.  How do they do it?  I really envy them.  They have my utmost respect and admiration.  Are you good with numbers, too?

Another thing I am bad at is speaking.  I hate to use my voice all day, which is why I detested teaching English as a Second Language on the college level.  Even being a teacher’s aide at a preschool was no fun.  Do you like to talk all day?

I guess we all have to find our own niche in life.  Mine is writing.  What’s yours?

    I’m with David on this one. What happens in the office is between him and his employer. You blogging about it might make the situation worse. You would not want that, I am sure.

  2. Christine Says:

    yes, good idea not to blog about David’s office stuff as Grannymar says. I have a Math degree, but from a long time ago!

    I am not a mathematician in any sense. I think I would always prefer to communicate in writing vs. speaking, although I am comfortable speaking in public–if it something I have written first. Off the top of my head speaking, I would sound a lot like poor Ms Utah.

    When I think how different my life would have been if I had never learned to read, I think anything to do with the written word is my own niche! I love to read, white, and spell. 🙂

    No numbers for me; I am a letter person – and into the arts… ♪♫ ❤

    I love art and math, in college taking both courses…art studio and calculus II (more than the required for my major). I’m still torn today. If I had more talent I would have majored in fine arts or architecture. I think I like designing and building things. I’m awful with words and speech.

    I am still working on mine. I can’t speak for long periods either. I find I need to cough a lot and drink water if I talk a lot.

    I wish I was smart in math. Math people know how to make and keep their money.

    Blogging: it does a body good.
    Priceless: to be able to reply on blogs.
    My Dad taught me about figuring out dining tips: Determine the 10% of the bill, then cut that amount in half and add to the 10%, if you want to give a 15% tip. If the server has done well, I can compute the 20 or 25% tip.
    Yep, my math teacher daughter-in-law can do it without thinking.
    Cheers, DrumMajor

    I don’t do much math these days, but was a fairly competent statistician for a while. I suppose coping with technology has become my new skill. Dianne
