I'm continuing my personality test journey (with a healthy amount of skepticism) with the Color Code Personality Test! DISCLAIMER Colorful words may be used. don't be alarmed.

It is the uncurated life podcast. I'm Cindy Guentert-Baldo. And today we are continuing my series on personality tests, especially from my point of view, as somebody who's kind of cynical and skeptical about personality tests. Although the last one, which was the Myers-Briggs test, kind of shocked me a little bit.   But we're moving on to a fun one today. One that's been requested. It's the colors, personality test. Now I find a few different versions of this online, but decided to go with the one that looked the quote most accurate, which is the color code test, which whew are you personality test. So allegedly it identifies both what you do and why.   And it separates you into four colors and this is pulled directly from the website. Reds need to look good, technically be right, and be respected. They are strong leaders and love challenges. Blues need to have integrity and be appreciated. They are focused on quality and creating strong relationships.   Whites need to be accepted and treated with kindness. They are logical objective and tolerant of others. Yellows need to be noticed and have fun. They love life, social connection and being positive and spontaneous. So that's basically the information here. Um, I don't have a lot of background information.   Like I said, it's sort of all over the place, but it is something like much like a lot of the other personality tests. They have stuff on the website saying, well, you could use this to build a better business or to build a better team or whatever, but I basically just want to take it and find out what they have to say.   So I'm at the website, www.colorcode.com. And I'm heading right over to the tab that says personality test. So when you get there, you have two options. There's the basic analysis, which is a quick and free way to sample the color code personality or. You can do the full analysis, which is a completely customized result, which is designed to fully analyze your personality.   Now I'm going to pay for it because I, uh, science, I guess I've been paying for the more advanced versions of all of these. And I don't know if I'm wasting money or not, but I'm going to write it off on my taxes. So there you go. This should give me a good report as well as a lot of personnel development shit, which I've gotten from the other ones too.   I'm not really worried about that. So I'm going to start taking my test and I will report back as soon as I'm done. All right. I'm done with the test. It's actually a very quick test and the questions are all, there's a series of like, you pick a word and then you, there's some statements you pick and it's all having to do with how you were as a child.   So I think that in and of itself, that to me makes me wonder how accurate this can be, because it's based on your own memory of being a kid. And I'm almost 42. So that was a while ago. Right. But let's, let's go and let's look at my results and it's. Fucking in depth personality test report on me. So let's go first and foremost to my main color.   Cause it gives you a main color in this report and a secondary color. And my main color, which is overall it's 64% is red. And then my secondary color is blue at 24%. And then the other two white and yellow are eight and 3%. So very much a red with a secondary blue. So let's go and read what it says about me as a red.   It says, congratulations, Cindy, your core color of red means you have the driving core motive of power.   This, this is a red, you need to look good technically to those whose opinions matter, your intellectual prowess is often admired and emulated. You're a born leader. You seek act action and are highly productive. You can be highly critical of those who, uh, dissatisfy your expectations. I agree with a lot of that.   You need to be right. Yes. And this, I think goes back to when I was a kid, I would say one of my main characteristics and my sisters will agree with this. I was, I was pretty bossy, bossy and impatient. And I know that there is some level of like patriarchy when it comes to telling little girls that they're bossy, but like, I was bossy.   Like I, I still kind of am actually. Anyway, it says that reds need approval in a way that is different from the other colors, yellows want approval from everyone around them, but it only matters to reds when it comes from people who are important to you, people who you respect. So I don't necessarily need approval from people.   I don't give a shit about. Tracks with me, it also says is a red that I can lack or have struggles with intimacy, like building intimate relationships, which is entirely true for me. So who knows, maybe I am a red let's look at my secondary color. So it says here that I have a blue, secondary color. There are advantages and disadvantages to that.   The major advantage is that people with a strong secondary color can naturally work to develop the positive traits of that color. In your case, Cindy, you should pursue the development of the strengths of the blue secondary color as they will make you even more effective as a person. The disadvantage of possessing a blue secondary color is that it challenges the aspects of your red core.   You may send mixed signals, which also tracks. One moment you'll act red. The other you'll act blue. This behavior can confuse people and make it difficult for them to know how you will react to any given situation. In other words, you may appear to be more inconsistent than would appear as somebody without a strong secondary color.   As a core red with secondary blue, there will never be a dull moment in your life. You possess one of the most complex personalities of all the color combinations. You face an intense internal struggle and often give mixed messages to those. With whom you interact, you can. Someone for making a mistake one minute, then feel guilty and offered to treat him or her to lunch.   The next you move forcefully through life, creating action and impacting others as you go. But when you feel those impacts might've been negative, your secondary blue personality leaves, you feeling very deep, remorse and guilt. Oh my God. Okay. That makes me feel called out. There was a day, the other day where cat really wanted to make whipped cream with the heavy whipping cream that we had in the fridge, like in the.   And I was like, no, I'm gonna use this for dinner and Catholic, but mom, we can always get more. You're not making it tonight. And I'm like, yeah, I want it now. Don't and I got super mad and then realized how ridiculous I was being and apologized and let Kat make the whipped cream. But like everybody in the house was looking at me like Cindy, you're fucking like all over the place.   And apparently this agrees with that. Now there's another section here in the paid for version where it gives you red needs, red wants than blue needs and blue wants. And what it suggests is that I circle the top two or three that are the most critical to. So let's take a look for red needs to be right, to be respected, to hide insecurities tightly, and to look good intellectually.   I would say that if I'm being real honest with myself, the most important ones to me are to be right. The most on that list to be right. And maybe till it good intellectually, if I'm being real honest, uh, for red wants reds, want to receive selective approval to please yourself, to lead others and to experience challenging adventure.   I would say from that list, if I was going to pick two, I would say to receive selective approval and to lead others now for the blue needs, they are to be good, morally, to be appreciated, to be understood and to receive acceptance. And I would say easily looking at that list that my top two needs there would be to be good morally, and to be appreciated.   And then for blue wants to reveal insecurities to enjoy security, to be autonomous and to please others. And from that list, I can again, easily pick two, and that would be to enjoy security and to be autonomous, no, here is a. Situation that, um, where it's based on some of the stuff you picked off of the test.   And so it tells you your strengths and limitations. So my red strengths are I'm motivated, pragmatic, productive, proactive, decisive, assertive action oriented, determined a leader and focused. My blue strengths are that I'm quality oriented and deliberate. My white strengths are that I'm self-regulated and inventive.   And my yellow strength is that I'm a creative thinker. My red limitations are that I'm selfish tactless, always right. Bossy and demanding. My sisters would be like, yup. And my blue limitations or that I can be judgmental. Self-righteous a perfectionist worry prone, overly sensitive, low self-esteem and unrealistic expectations.   My white limitations can be that I'm can be an indirect communicator. And my yellow limitations are that I can be naive and obnoxious again, all of this fields, but these were all things I picked. So it's not like they wouldn't feel right to me. Now there's one little section here that I want to touch on before.   I end this and that is there's a section towards the end that tells you about development tasks to consider as. And then they've got them for work personal and love. And I'm going to look in on the personal, because that's kind of my focus for this next year is to help bring my personal life back into like focus in my entire life as a whole.   So I'm going to look at these ones and I'm going to see what I can take away from them. It says here, I need to start enjoying living in the most. Yes. Being more introspective in how you impact friends and family. That's something I've been working on for a long time. I'll be real with you. Inviting people who live life differently into your life.   That would be kind of hard for me, but yeah. Um, I need to stop making all the decisions about how your friends should live your bare life. That one I actually don't think I do, but it's mostly because I've been really kind of persona. Non existence in my friends lives in recent years, but I have done that before.   Uh, stop being so rigid about completing tasks on your days off Jesus. Yes. And stop getting mad at your family when they disrupt your focus. Aha. Yes. My kids will be like cheering in the background, um, and then continue juggling a variety of interests in your life, which you do so well. I appreciate you think that personality test, but I'm not really feeling that way right now.   Sharing your gifts of vision with the community and challenging the status quo. So, yeah, I'm down for that. I'm down to do some of those things. So what do I think about this test? Well, like I think that it's, I think that it's been fairly accurate, but I also don't know exactly how. How much insight it can give when there really was only probably about 50 questions total, and they all had to do with how you felt you were as a kid, which again, the further you are away from being a kid, it feels like the, the less you remember, but it was an interesting little thing.   And I guess it'll be really interesting when I get to the end of this series and I start comparing all of these results against each other. Well, anyway, it was a fun test take. I can imagine you want to get all this information, but it could be real interesting to look at by just doing the free version.   So I'll leave it linked in the show notes in case you want to take it and share your results with me over on Instagram, tag me at Lama letters and your stories. I'd also love any suggestions on personalities to take in the future personality tests. I've got a few of them on my list currently that I haven't done yet.   Um, Clifton strengths actually is the only one I have. At the moment. So I would love some more suggestions for personality type tests. They don't have to be scientific. They can be fucking bunk as shit. Maybe even a Buzzfeed test. I don't know. Let me know in the comments around the comments, this is a fucking podcast.   Let me know, uh, over on Instagram at Lama letters, or you can let me know, um, from my emails, whatever you want to do anyway, in the meantime, Thank my patrons. They make this episode possible. They make all my episodes possible and you can talk to them over at www.patreon.com/cindyguentertbaldo. In the meantime, my friends, I hope you have a fantastic rest of your week, and I cannot wait to talk to you next time.   Thanks and peace out.

Happy New Year, Jaw-ers! Thirsty Thursday is back in business for 2022, and Lindsay is ready to bring the heat. On today's episode, Lindsay quickly recaps her holiday break. All of which included birthdays, traveling, holidays, and her first time skiing. With the new year, comes new experiences and this past weekend's ski adventure did just that. While we're only two weeks in to 2022, there has been constant buzz in the media world. To kick off the year, Lindsay breaks down four of this week's most pressing hot topics in pop-culture. It wouldn't be an episode of Jaws if we didn't have some input on the Bachelor. With a very brief and burnt out recap, Lindsay chats about her thoughts on Clayton and his women thus far. 2022 may be a mouthful to say, but that should not stop us all from setting our goals and resolutions. Lindsay talks about how it is not only important for us to hold ourselves accountable for the goals we already made, but to continue to add on to them. Just because it's the start of the new year, doesn't mean we limit ourselves to leveling up. To close out the episode, Lindsay talks about how one of her goals is to better herself in her friendships. With this goal in mind, Lindsay had her own Tinx moment per se to create a theory - The Friendship Cheater Theory. Could this theory, along with the Fatal Flaw theory, be present in your life?

Welcome back to the uncurated life podcast. Before I even get into this episode, I wanted to give you a bit of a trigger warning for anybody who struggles with, talk about weight. Talk about dieting, talk about exercise, talk about disordered eating and all of that. I will be talking about my thoughts on how wellness and dieting seem to be.   Kind of interchanged with each other right now, is this all my own thoughts and my own experiences, but I know that for some people, this can be a conversation that can be really hard for them. So I'm just letting you know, upfront that if you need to skip this episode, no hard feelings. Totally understand.   But I wanted to say that upfront because I love you. Let's get going. Not that this is your first time here. My name is Cindy Guentert-Baldo this is kind of a heavy one to get started on, but it also kind of gives you an idea of sort of the, the different ways that this podcast kind of takes shape. I love to talk about how we live our lives on the internet.   And for me, that can show up in some sassy molassey and that can also show up in some kind of heavier conversations. And today's definitely going to be on the heavier side, but it is something that has been weighing on me quite a bit. Recently, no pun intended. And that is, is wellness. The new diet.   Imagine. Wellness and diet, both being in quotes. Now I had already had this thought and I will kind of talk about that a little bit in a hot minute here, but if you don't already listen to it, maintenance phase is a fantastic podcast where they dissect a lot of things around diet, culture and wellness culture, and it's fascinating.   And it has helped me really unpack some of the stuff that I have had ingrained in me for a long ass time. And. I think that if you haven't listened to it, I'll make sure to link it in the show notes. There talk about wellness and diet has been really instrumental for me in solidifying some of the thoughts I was already having.   Although I will also say that I don't have very solid thoughts on this. This is more of a stream of consciousness conversation that brings in my experiences and my thoughts on the subject. And this will be an ongoing conversation, I think, cause it's fascinating to me lately, especially as it pertains to myself, my body image.   And how some of those things can impact my kids. So I guess a good place to start is my history with dieting. I'm 42 years old. Well, I'm almost 42. I keep saying I'm 42, but I haven't quite turned 42 yet, but I'm getting there. I grew up in the eighties in the nineties. Dieting was everywhere, but it wasn't really something that was impressed upon me, partly because I grew.   In a fairly poor household. And there wasn't really any conversation about dieting because the conversation was often about. W what kind of food we were going to have for dinner? Like where are we going to have to go get the free government food? Or where are we going to have to get something on clearance at the grocery store that my mom was going to have to make stretch?   It, it wasn't like a, it wasn't a real conversation in our house. If my mom was into diet culture. Honestly, I don't remember it now. My sisters could totally contradict me on this. I also was a very self-absorbed teenager, especially, but I don't remember my mom being super into, into diet culture for one.   My mom, as a profession was a cook. She did was a kitchen manager at a restaurant at the cafeteria. She worked in various kitchens throughout her life and loved to cook. Unfortunately, when it came to our meals, she was burned out on cooking for the most part, and also trying to stretch a very, very meager budget when it came to our food.   But she wasn't afraid of. On top of that, my mom was a bigger lady. She was not skinny by any stretch of the means. She was a much a bigger person, but she seemed to have quite a bit, at least again, from my memory of a fairly good body image of herself, partly because my dad thought that she was just absolutely gorgeous and.   They may have fought like cats and dogs, but they also were high school sweethearts and super into each other. And so, again, from my perspective, I'm not speaking for my mom and my mom has passed away. So she can't really speak for herself anymore. But from what I remember observing. I didn't get a lot of my issues with food from my mom's specifically when I was in high school, I did have body image issues, but most of my body image issues were surrounded by the fact that I was six, two.   I grew a foot and a half in a year. And when you AE are super tall female and be. It's like the mid nineties and they haven't really started selling like long sizes and a lot of the super discount stores, which is all we could afford to shop at. I wound up having to do things like wear men's jeans because they were the only ones that weren't high waters on me.   So most of my body image issues that I remember were surrounded by, um, how tall I was not my weight. I honestly don't really remember being super. Annoyed by my weight in high school, what I will say. And again, this can go back to my self absorbed. Anise is that both of my sisters tended towards my mom's body shapes.   They were both are both larger than me. And maybe part of me was like, oh, well, I don't have to worry about that. Cause I'm skinnier than them, which is a shitty thing to say, but. I can totally see myself sort of internalizing that. I just don't remember any real issues that I had with body image that wasn't around, both my height and the fact that I have never been able to give my hair.   Like I didn't even know. Straight irons were like flat irons were a thing. I just thought people had naturally smooth hair and my shitty hair and my shitty teeth were just because I was poor. I found out later. Yeah, that is part of it because I couldn't afford the things to make them fancy, but it wasn't that fancy people, rich people just happen to be more fancy know they can afford the ways to be more fancy suffice it to say, I didn't start struggling with weight until I got.   It really started when I was in my first marriage. And some of it came from comments that my ex-husband made, that had to do with his standards for beauty. And they weren't about me being. Overweight. They were about me having smaller boobs basically. And I internalized a lot of that. I don't think he really knew when he told me those things, that that was going to impact me for years to come.   I think for him, he was just making an offhanded comment, but. For me, they did impact me for a long time. And the, and again, this goes back to a lot of what I've been thinking about lately, which is it's very easy for us to make offhanded comments. About ourselves, about other people that we don't think are a big deal, but there may be people overhearing what we're saying or that we're saying them to, whether it's our kids, whether it's other people in our lives, whatever the case may be.   And so what to us, does it seem a big deal because we've already internalized it or it just doesn't seem like a big deal to us. It could be really awful for somebody else. And that's just been something that I've been grappling with lately. Again, that particular comment did not make me really worry about my weight.   The worrying about my weight began when I was pregnant and it wasn't even when I was pregnant, my first pregnancy with cat, I went 41 weeks. I gained 70 pounds and when I had cat, cat was a little under 10 pounds. I was having a lot of trouble dropping the weight at first. And I wanted to, I wanted to just get back to my normal and believe me, my normal has Al was always at the time, like 180 pounds.   Again, I'm six, two. I wasn't ever expecting to be super, super skinny or anything. I just didn't want to be where I was at the time. So I went on weight Watchers for the first time. And this first round of WeightWatchers that I was on was successful for me. I wound up losing the majority of that weight and feeling really good about it.   I wasn't exercising all that much cause exercise and I have never been good friends with each other, but I was like just really counting calories and restricting the food I was eating and it worked. And then I got pregnant again. And this time with RJ. Because of various circumstances, which I can totally go into in another video.   A lot of it was my fault. Uh, we wound up, I wasn't working and we wound up having a lot of trouble, like with money in general, in the early days of my pregnancy with RJ, I wound up going without food for a week because I was so worried that we wouldn't have enough money for food and for gas to get me to the job I was going to.   And I ended up blacking out at my training. So. Suffice it to say that even when I started working again, I did not have either the time because I had a toddler or the disposable income to indulge all of my cravings. When I was pregnant with cat dude, I was all about the Wienerschnitzel, corn dogs and shit, or chili dogs, and shit like that.   But with RJ, I only gained 20 pounds. And then on top of that, he was almost 11 pounds when he was born. So that to me felt like, like triumphant, but I did again, try to go on weight Watchers to lose the weight a second time. And this time I struggled with it. However, I discovered that there was another way that one could lose weight.   Enter the time in my life. When I was below my goal weight, I was the skinniest I had ever been in my life. Not only that people were telling me how good I looked, I was also the most miserable I had ever been in my life. It was when things were really bad between my ex-husband and I, and I was a manager at trader Joe's and I was working 50 plus hours a week on a schedule where I barely saw my.   It was chain smoking. I was only eating basically goldfish, crackers and drinking. Coca-Cola. That was it. That was basically my life now. No, at this point, I didn't know I had polycystic kidney disease, but my blood pressure, it was only just then starting to skyrocket. Amazing. I can't imagine why. Right. But like, you could see my hips and I felt really, really like, like, like Zoolander would say really, really good looking, but I was utterly miserable.   This is a very self-destructive period of my life. I was drinking too much. All sorts of shit happened again. I might go into this more and more detail one day, but that's not the subject of this podcast.   The best weight I'd ever been in my life was the most unhealthy I'd ever been in my life. And yet I was still proud of myself for being that weight. And for a long time afterwards, once I had gotten out of that marriage, once Jesse and I had started dating and then living together and I put on like the happy, the happy weight, the weight that comes when one stops, one, quit smoking for one and is not like completely and utterly lost.   Depressed and just fucked up for that whole time. Yeah, I put on the weight, but I would keep idealizing this ideal of myself when I was a super skinny, but also really unhealthy. This was the first time it began to occur to me, but not in the front of my mind, in the back of my mind that it's not about how much you weigh when it comes to how healthy you are.   That doesn't mean that there can't be health problems that come with being. In the upper limits of weight and there's things that come with being in the lower ends of the weight spectrum or whatever. I'm not saying that, but what I am saying is that how much someone weighs is not necessarily an indicator of their health.   There are other indicators that are much more obvious making assumptions about someone's health based on their weight is foolish because that doesn't tell you anything. But at the time, I didn't quite think about that.   Now I was never a diet cycler, but in the years after I got together with Jess, I put back on weight because I had quit smoking cold Turkey right before we moved in together. And then. Generally speaking, I was much happier. So I was not like subsiding on crackers and soda anymore. There were times when I would return to my old favorite, the weight Watchers that I did, the whole 30, my kids will make jokes about that to this day, because they were like, mom, are you fucking kidding me?   I flirted with plenty of diets, but I didn't. Um, really go down the super high protein end of things. Mostly because again, knowing that I had kidney disease, that just seemed like a bad idea at the time. However, in the time of this timeframe, I began to notice certain wording around dieting coming from my diet fat free, you know, zero points kind of WeightWatchers lifestyle.   I began to notice with some of my friends. Th their wording was different, but it felt the same very specifically. It was around things like eating, clean, eating, lean, feeling, lean, feeling light, you know? Yeah, cleansing toxins. My first real exposure to this shit started happening. It was happening to me and a group of my friends and I immediately was like, what the fuck does that even mean?   It just sounds like diet talked. Clothed differently. And I had evidence of that fairly soon. I had a friend who blacked out from not eating enough in there eating lean phase or whatever. And so I was like, okay, this, this is kind of concerning me. But again, it didn't cause me to take a look at what I was trying to do.   Like, okay, this person is saying they want to eat clean and feel light. And I'm like, I'm kind of worried about you, man. But then I turn around and I'm like, how many? Zero point snacks can I get in today? Right.   So that all leads me to the most recent years where I've really, I've really kind of changed my thought process on all of it. One of the things that changed that thought process is having polycystic kidney disease. Literally because my kidneys are massive. They make me look pregnant and has taken me a long time.   I'm talking up until recent days where I can look at myself in the mirror and not completely hate the way I look. I recognize why I look the way I look and. I am trying real hard to love my body, but I think I've at least gotten to a point where I liked my body. I don't love the way it feels a lot at the time, but I also am at a point now there's nothing like fucking chronic kidney disease to let you know that when you eat something that your body doesn't like, your body lets you know, real quickly and that's where I'm at right now.   So it's a balance of how nauseated I am. Most of the time. And how certain things that I tend to go towards when I'm nauseated might make me feel like shit. Maybe because of my medications, maybe because of my kidney function, it depends on the thing, but it's, it's helped me work my way through it. I don't recommend this.   I don't recommend chronic genetic illness as a way to help you figure out your. Your issues with diet culture, plot twist, though, as I was starting to come to terms with my body, both how it felt and how it looked. I started to also notice at the same time that all of those things that were beginning to irk me years ago with my friends about eating clean and all of that, we're starting to take over the fucking world of dieting and so on and so forth.   Thanks to things like goop and all sorts of other shit. This idea of eating clean wellness, flushing your toxins, and. People talking about flushing, their toxins is one of the things that annoys the everliving shit out of me. If you have working kidneys, that's their job and your liver's job as somebody who does not have very well working kidneys when I need, when there comes a day, when I need to flush my toxins, that's done with dialysis.   So miss me with your fucking talks and flushing. Thank you very much. Moving forward. So noticing that, that eating clean the way that instead of talking about going on a diet, now, people were talking about improving their wellness and an eating clean and restricting carbs and whatever the case may be, it's they wouldn't say restricting, they would say I'm avoiding carbs or whatever.   The language softened, it felt a lot more like Gwenyth Paltrow, the way that you would talk about things. And then. I began to notice how I was talking about food around my kids.   When I talked about being bad, when it came to eating something, when I talked about. Having a cheat day or whatever. I didn't ever notice those things. But remember what I said before about comments that you think are not innocuous impacting people harder when one of your teenagers struggles with disordered eating, especially around avoiding and restricting foods.   You begin to recognize whenever that stuff starts to come out of your mouth and that began to happen for me. And so, even though I felt like I was coming to better terms with how I saw my body, I realized that I had a lot of the training retraining to do and how I talked about shit in general, because some of those things that to me were kind of throwaway comments.   We're impacting my kid in a way that was forming their opinions of themselves so that as they went into their life, they might change how they feel about certain things. Now that's kind of where I'm at now. So that gives you sort of the beginning to the, the current state of how I am feeling like I'm more at peace with my body.   Not at peace of the fact that my body is shutting down, but at peace with what I need to do in order to feel less shit. And not worry about the rest of it. That's where I'm at right now. Like currently I need to start reducing my salt according to my nephrologist. So that's something to think about, but not because I'm worried about being fat beat because I need to reduce salt for my blood pressure sake because I have kidney disease.   So I'm comfortable with where I'm at with my body. I mean, I'd be comfortable in my body, but that is reasons beyond my control. But what I am comfortable with is how I feel about my body. And I have hard days. But they're fewer than they used to be. But right now, currently, what I am worried about is my kids, not just the one, discover this, dealing with disordered eating, but both of them and the images they're taking into the world, as well as really thinking about like the things that are so deep inside of me, that I don't even notice them.   I want to remove as many landmines as possible, both for my kids and for myself. Anyway, now that we've talked about that, I want to talk about a few things that, that, um, are kind of at the forefront of my brain when it comes to this whole idea of wellness versus diet and how they're both just basically insidious.   One thing for me is the obsession with food. And this is something that my kid is working on, right. This obsession with eating the right foods. Which is now it's like, let's eat the clean foods. Let's eat the non, the non-toxic foods, whatever used to be let's eat the fat free foods or the no points foods or the no carbs foods or the low carbs foods or whatever the language has changed.   It used to be like, they would say like fat free or low fat or whatever, but now it's about eating clean. I keep coming back to that, but that's like eating clean and wellness are like fucking two sides of the same goddamn. I'm not saying eating less processed foods is terrible. It's a, it's fine. It's a good thing.   But when you start assigning morality to your food, that's when we start heading into trouble territory. Assigning some foods as good. And some foods is bad. Some foods as naughty in some foods is nice. Some foods is clean and some foods is dirty. That's assigning moral judgements to food that doesn't fucking exist.   It's just food. And believe me, when I say it is just a first world problem too, because if you think about it, If you really wanted to improve, people's eating. If you really wanted to improve public health, if you really wanted to improve all of these things, if it wasn't about beauty standards, if it was about real overall health that we would be working on things like bringing accessible food to food deserts.   Stopping equating obesity with health problems because really the health problems need to be addressed. The obesity is not the health problem. You can address it. If there's an issue that's causing like joint pain or whatever, but if you have health problems, doctors need to look at that first. And having access to things like open space, places for people to walk easily accessible things for people to do where they can move their body and making it so that moving your butt, like getting people, the clue that you just want to find a way to move your body, that you like, you don't have to punish yourself.   Exercise. Shouldn't be punishment. I'm getting on a tangent tangent here, tirade. I'm very sorry about that. I'm actually not very sorry about that, hashtag, sorry, not sorry. I will say that aside from my own management of changing my language around food and exercise and trying to remove the morality from food, the other things that really, really piss me off are a, the way that people make assumptions about.   Based on body size and that's gonna be an entirely different podcast. I can tell you from my own experience and from experience of my family members, the differences in ways one might get treated at the doctor's office based on how big you are, right? The way that you can't necessarily be diagnosed with an eating disorder.   If you aren't at a certain BMI, which excludes everybody, who's not at a super low BMI who also has disordered eating. And then of course, there's my anger at companies selling us. Now it's wellness culture used to be diet culture. Now it's wellness culture companies sell it to us because the way you sell something to someone, as you identify the problem, and then you sell them a way to fix it.   And so for company and wellness, dieting, all, that's a huge Indian. And so companies can make more money if they're selling a solutions to why we're fat solutions, to why we're unhealthy solutions, to help us with our wellness, as opposed to actually addressing the systemic things, donating money, or doing all the things advocating for government help for the.   Actually will cause society as a better as a whole to be more well, we're selling us this thing that makes us feel like, well, if we do this and we eat clean and we remove all of our toxins and blah-blah-blah, then, then we might get closer to Gwyneth Paltrow. You know, I don't know. This is a big rant. You guys, I don't even think this is as organized as I wanted it to be, but we go back to my central thesis.   Right? Is wellness the new diet? Yes. Yes, it is. I think that it feels like, and I got this from wellness, from wellness, from maintenance phase, they said something like, sometimes it feels like you just take a bunch of papers about, or like advertisements about diet and control F and replace all of the diet with wellness.   And there you go. It's the same fucking shit. And I'm not saying taking care of yourself, self care, that sort of thing is not important. But what I am saying is that companies. And gurus and people trying to make money off of us capitalism if they take diet, which is an extremely, extremely lucrative industry.   But it's starting to get a bad rap because dieting does not sound like the business in 2022. If they repackage it as wellness, suddenly people are willing to buy it again. I'm trying to be more discerning about that. And my hope is that if you struggle with this, that this might help you get a little bit of clarity towards being more discerning about it.   And I know this was ramble-y, this was all over the place, but I needed to get some of this off my chest. I will be re-exploring this topic more in upcoming days or upcoming months, whatever. But in the meantime, what I would love to know if you understood or agreed with any of this, let me know in Instagram stories, tag me at @llamaletters so I can see it share this podcast.   If that's interesting to you, I just I'd really like to know your thoughts anyway.

There are many things you could do this year, many things you think you should do, or maybe this year you have no idea what to do!? Or maybe you are feeling like you'd rather just pull the cover over your head. Don't let the chaos and pressure of the world or the should's of your self-induced  pressure and thoughts swirl you up. Instead turn inward, tune into your heart and dare to tap into your deeper wisdom and desires and let those inspire and guide you. Wisdom teaches us to use the power and practice of "inquiry" to consider the path before moving into action. Not so we can have it all figured out like an agenda or project plan. But so we can be clear on our intentions, be connected to what's really in right timing, and to see what we can't see with our eyes but can sense with our deeper intuitive knowing ... if we slow down to listen.  Wisdom also teaches us ... the wisdom is within you for your most soul-aligned path ahead, the path that sustains you on all levels - mind, body, heart and spirit. And the portal into that wisdom is not in your mental mind, it's in your heart and body.   Every year I do an episode that takes us through 6 wisdom inquires feel  would serve us to contemplate.  How we start the year creates the reality ahead. Use the practice of these six 'wisdom inquiries' so you can stay focused on what truly matters, create the realities for ourselves and the world that align with our deeper truth and desires, and realize sustainable success.  Six is the number that creates harmony. Every year the inquires are different. Because every year, we need differently inquiries to lead us to the possibilities we haven't even considered with our limited - often fear reactive - minds.  I comb through the many inquiries we use in the EMERGE Visioning Process to find 6 to "prime the pump" and open your visioning, intention setting and focusing for the year to come.  And this year, a bonus inquiry jumped in! A seventh inquiry. 7 is the number associated with going deeper than we've gone before so we can emerge in a more radiant, whole form. Perfect. Tune in with me, Christine Arylo, transformational leadership advisor and women's leadership and empowerment teacher, for episode 175: 6 Inquiries to Tune In & Reveal What Truly Matters to You This Year See you there!

Welcome back to the uncurated life podcast, where we are always talking about our lives and how we live them on the internet. And one thing that happens on the internet is people talking about their personality types from various personality tests. I believe this is the third episode that I have done in this series.   The previous ones I've done where any. And the, uh, DIC tests I believe. And so this will be number three and it is the, um, one of the behemoths of the personality test world. And that is the Myers-Briggs test. Now a quick disclaimer, I tend to be cynical about personality tests, but I am doing my best to be open-minded when I take.   So just know that right from the start. I also have not taken it yet. That will happen during the recording of this podcast. Now, before I get further into it, I just want to let you know that if you have not already checked it out, we are heading into the new year extravaganza over on my YouTube channel with all of the bullet journal setups and planners, lineups, and stacks and goals and all the things.   So just be sure to check it out. It's linked in the description below. Now let's, let's talk a little bit about this test is also known as the M B T I test the Myers-Briggs type indicator. It's a personality test that is based on the, um, Jungian psychological type theories, Carl Young, uh, it was developed by Isabel Myers-Briggs and her mom, Catherine Myers.   They wanted to, I guess, bring the youngian theories. Into, like a place where people could use them, like make them useful. So this is an excerpt from the Myers-Brigg dot org, like the official website, it's the, uh, their explanation about Carlos. Personality type theories. The essence of the theory is that much seemingly random variation in the behavior is actually quite orderly and consistent being due to basic differences in the ways individuals prefer to use their perception and judgment and quote.   They took this idea and his theories and everything, and turn them into an instrument that can be used. You can do your self-assessment online, which is what I'm going to do today. Or you can find people that are trained in it that they can assess you and help you figure out what your personality type is.   And there are 16 different personality types, um, based on four different. Aspects of, of personality and how you, you, you judge ship. So this is also from the Myers-Briggs website about the basics of the instrument, and they excerpt this from the MTBI manual, a guide to the development and use of the Myers-Briggs type indicator.   Favorite world. Do you prefer to focus on the outer world or on your own inner world? This is called extroversion E or introversion. I sets the first letter. This is me talking the first letter of the four letters in the personality type. Next is information. Do you prefer to focus on the basic information you take in, or do you prefer to interpret an ad?   Meaning this is called sensing S or intuition and decisions when making decisions do you prefer to first look at logic and consistency or first look at the people in special circumstances. This is called thinking T or feeling F. And then structure in dealing with the outside world. Do you prefer to get things decided or do you prefer to stay open to new information and options?   This is called judging J or perceiving P your personality type. When you decide on your preferences in each category, you have your own personality type, which can be expressed as a code with four letters. And quote, and that actually lines up. A lot of people I think are inf PS or I N F J's I think in the planner world, at least I think that's what I've seen.   A whole bunch of studies have proven this is, this is important because when I said at the beginning, how cynical I am about personality tests, a lot of it feels like, like if I'm in a certain mood, I'm going to score a certain way. Right? Like, how is it actually. Well, according to the Myers-Briggs website, studies have proven this test to be both valid, meaning that it measures what it says it does, and reliable meaning that you get the same results if you're given the test more than once.   So I'm assuming that this is supposed to be one of the more like accurate personality tests, but I have no idea so far in looking at the other two tests I've done. I have had thoughts, both in terms of how it felt right. And how it didn't feel. Right. So we'll see how this one goes. If you are interested in taking the test, I'm going to link the one I am taking below.   It's the MTBI online.com test, which is the one linked from the official website. It's a $50 test. It's not cheap. I'm sure that there are. Less expensive versions, but I'm, I'm, I'm going with this one. I'm paying for it for the podcast. Thanks to my patrons who are sponsoring this episode. Uh, because I just, I feel like I want to take the one that is the most quote official.   I'm assuming. So. But you can, I'm sure Google and find other versions. So what I'm gonna do now is I'm gonna stop recording and I'm going to take the test when I'm done. I'll let you know how long it took me. And then we will talk about the results. All right. So it only took me about 15, 20 minutes to complete the assessment and I'm a speed reader and I got a phone call in the middle of it.   So. I finished. And it's taking me through a 30 minute module to learn about the personality types before it tells me what my personality type is. So I thought I would pop on and kind of bring you with me mainly because maybe this will help interpret it. So they're talking about personality type being made up of four elements, the way you direct and receive energy, the way you take in information, the way you decide and come to conclusions and the way you approach the outside world.   And they say that the, the two elements in the middle taking an information and the deciding and coming to conclusions are what make up the core of your personality, because that's what makes up all your mental activity. Right? So you, you collect information and then you have to decide what you're going to do with it.   Right. So as we move on, It's talking about basically like taking information, being the, what you are aware of, what you perceive, how you perceive it, what information you look for, what information you rely on, what information is important to you and what you tend to notice or not? No. And then coming to conclusion is how do you come to your decisions?   What process do you make? What do you rely on when you make a decision? How do you arrive at your opinions? What kind of decisions do you like to make? What consequences do you consider, how you do evaluate the opinions or decisions of others, and then the two other parts of this, the way you direct and receive energy has to do with how you get energized, how you focus your energy, what drains you and how you like to be in contact and talk to it with other people.   And how much of that. And then the other one is approaching the outside world, meaning like, how do you structure? How, how much structure do you want or need? What do you do with new information? How do you approach tasks and what information do you want before making decisions? Now they said that there's four pairs of opposites.   And we talked about this at the beginning, the outside, the energy being directed towards the outside world. Or the inner world taking an information that is real and tangible that you can perceive or seeing the big picture and patterns and interrelationships making decisions. It's either logic or personal and social values.   And then approaching the outside world is decisiveness with planning versus flexibility and spontaneity. So the terms that they're talking about, we talked about already the introversion extroversion, all of that. Now the preferences. They talk about the difference between using your preferred hand and your opposite hand.   When you use your preferred hand, it's easier. It takes less energy. It can be done faster. It feels natural, right? And your opposite hand, unless you're ambidextrous is harder, has more energy is more awkward, et cetera. So it says that you can do both, but one is easier and you prefer to do it more. Right?   So. Each of the opposites have their letters. We talked about that at the beginning, there are 16 different personality types based on the four. Like basically if you think about like a four by four square and each way is the four letters, the, um, that describe the energy, the information, the conclusions, and the outside world.   And then it said here, when you look at your type description, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Extroverted thinking is different from introverted thinking, a person who is sensing the judging preferences is someone who prefers sensing and perceiving. So the way that the elements of your personality type interact with.   Makes each of the 16 personalities different. So it's not just each letter. It's also how they interplay with each other. All right. This next section is about choosing preferences and I actually have to make some choices here, so I will stop the recording for a second, but I will reiterate what it says here on this page, which is a, this is not a test B, there are no right or wrong answers.   See, there is no way to pass her. And D everyone has a personality. So I will be back in a few once I'm done with this. All right. So I just went through and based on both what they said about each section of the personality type and they provided a shit ton of examples. I reported myself as an E N F J and the.   Answers from my questionnaire were E S F J. But the difference between the end and the S was, it said it was all the way from very likely to very, not likely, somewhat likely blah, blah, blah. And it was very soft, like very, might be likely an S. And so then, You can read this. And which do you think is more correct?   So the two types that they give the T the basic rundown is an E S F J, which is what the test gave me was warm-hearted talkative, active cooperative, and conscientious want harmony in their environment and work hard to establish it, notice what others need and try to provide it. Always trying to do something nice for someone, an E N F J was warm sociable.   and empathetic are highly attuned to the emotions needs and motivations of others seek and find the best in everyone. I want to help everyone fulfill his or her potential can act as catalysts and provide inspiring leadership and looking at those, I think E N F G. Is much more along the lines for me. I wish I was someone who would provide harmony, but I don't think I am someone who provides harmony.   So I'm going to hit continue, which means this is the one they're taking for me. And I'm amazed that cause basically the only letter that was different, everything else was like extremely likely. It was that other one that was soft. So now it says, go to your dashboard to find out select areas of interest so we can customize your experience.   Well-being personal development relationships. I'll go with personal development. One. Now that you have your result. There are a bunch of courses. There's a whole bunch of shit here. So I guess the 50 bucks does get you a lot. Um, so it's giving me a whole bunch of like mini courses that I can take because of my type.   So it says here that I am a competitor. Facilitator you are highly attuned. I mean, look at results here. Compassionate facilitator, warm, empathetic, and responsible. You tend to take notice of other people's feelings, needs and motivations. You see the potential in everyone and try to help others to grow and develop, to reach their goals.   You're loyal and sociable, and you tend to be responsive to praise or criticism from others. You're often a natural and inspirational leader. Cindy's characteristics, collaborative, expressive, friendly, and responsible work in home. Harmony is very important to you. Holy shit. Like I just finished recording a couple of other episodes.   This is going to come back to it. I did this one last because of the test, but yeah, harmony is very important to us. And then I'm seeking my guys. You'll often work hard to maintain cooperative collaborative relationships between your colleagues, friends, and family. You'll usually have a genuine interest in other people want to work towards a humanitarian vision.   Focused on helping others to achieve their goals or fulfill their potential and use your insights and curiosity to explore possibilities that support the ideas and people around you. You, my potential blind spots are that I might find it difficult to emotionally detach yourself from situations are focused on specific details.   Yes. Avoid problems or disagreements to prevent conflict. That's a big hell. Yes. And help others without giving them an opportunity to learn for their. Uh, huh. How others are likely to see you supportive nature, curiosity, empathy at your best. They see you as energetic and enthusiastic. You tend to move steadily into action.   Persuasively bringing other people along like this feels like me. This feels right. And I would suggest that I think this feels more right than the other two tests that I took. This feels very much like me, especially when it comes to the blind spots and, um, and some of the other aspects of who I am. So it says that that, uh, Some ENF Jays may have many definite sheds and should nots, which they express freely, sometimes annoying others.   Like that for me is an absolute yes. Right? And if they have not developed their feeling preference, their decisions may be inconsistent and poor, poorly formulated. And that used to be me. So that again makes, makes a lot of sense to me. It also says that. They are energized by people and are socially adept.   And all I will say with that, that's probably the one spot, but it's, I always knew this extrovert versus introvert part would be a little different because I do get energized by people until I'm not like I hit a wall and being socially adept really depends on the situation. I can be very withdrawn depending on kind of where I'm at, but I think that, that goes back to the J part, which is the.   The part of me that needs to be organized and be on a schedule and be in habits. Like I kind of flopped back and forth between like blah, blah feelings and all these things and things must be in their right place. And so I think this really expresses that well, so yeah, overall I think this is very interesting.   Um, I really want to dig into some of these. Classes and things that are on here since I've paid for them. I might do that. And if you want me to, I might report back on some of those. Let me know, just message me on Instagram or post to Instagram stories. Tag me at Lama letters. Let me know your personality type from the Myers-Briggs.   And also if you would like me to dig deeper into this and give a review on whether or not it's worth the 50 bucks. Um, but. This has been fun. I am curious to see what the next one will be. I have a list of other personality tests again, post on Instagram. Let me know if you have tests. You'd like me to check out during this cynic's guide, the personality test series.   I feel a little less cynical about this one, because this feels fairly active. Anyway, once again, thanks to my patrons for sponsoring this episode. They are rad. And if you want to be rod like them, go to www.patreon.com/cindyguentertbaldo to find out more. And until next time, my friends, I hope you have a lovely week.   Take care of yourselves until next time. Peace out.

#043: Founder and chairperson of the Slow Money Institute Woody Tasch talks us through investing in our local communities, farms, and soil with great intention and patience. Woody promotes a grassroots approach through the formation of community groups that offer zero-percent loans to organic farms and food businesses actively stewarding living soil.  Woody Tasch is the author of SOIL: Notes Towards the Theory and Practice of Nurture Capital, Inquiries into the Nature of Slow Money: Investing as if Food, Farms, and Fertility Mattered  (2008) and has most recently written AHA! Fake Trillions, Real Billions, Beetcoin, and the Great American Do-Over.  Woody is the creator of Beetcoin, which is designed to give zero-percent loans to organic farms and local foos businesses.  In 2010 UTNE Reader names him one of “25 Visionaries Who Are Changing Your World.” To watch a video version of this podcast please visit:https://www.realorganicproject.org/woody-tasch-investing-local-soil-slow-money-episode-forty-threeThe Real Organic Podcast is hosted by Dave Chapman and Linley Dixon, engineered by Brandon StCyr, and edited and produced by Jenny Prince.The Real Organic Project is a farmer-led movement working towards certifying 1,000 farms across the United States this year. Our add-on food label distinguishes soil-grown fruits and vegetables from hydroponically-raised produce. It also identifies pasture-raised meat, milk, and eggs as compared to products harvested from animals in horrific confinement (CAFOs - confined animal feeding operations).To find a Real Organic farm near you, please visit:https://www.realorganicproject.org/farmsWe believe that the organic standards, with their focus on soil health, biodiversity, and animal welfare were written as they should be. But the current lack of enforcement of those standards is jeopardizing small farms that follow the law. The lack of enforcement is also jeopardizing the overall health of the customers who support the organic movement; customers who are not getting what they pay for at market but are still paying a premium price. The lack of enforcement is jeopardizing the very cycles (water, air, nutrients) that Earth relies upon to provide us all with a place to live, by pushing extractive, chemical agriculture to the forefront.If you like what you hear and are feeling inspired, we would love for you to join our movement by becoming one of our 1,000  Real Friends!https://www.realorganicproject.org/1000-real-fans/To read our weekly newsletter (which might just be the most forwarded newsletter on the internet!) and get firsthand news about what's happening with organic food, farming and policy, please subscribe here:https://www.realorganicproject.org/email/

It's been another long, tiring year for me with lots of changes and challenges. In order to really pump myself up, I decided to take some time to really think about what I'm looking forward to in the next year. DISCLAIMER Colorful words may be used. don't be alarmed.

I thought that as we are cruising into December of 2022, that it would be a good time to really think about some things I'm looking forward to in the new year. I already did an episode like this a few months ago, and there may be some repeat things, partly because some of them haven't happened yet.   Well, mostly because some of them haven't happened yet, but I will link it in the comments. If you haven't heard. Yet. So this is going to be fairly lighthearted, but I do want to just kind of think about some of the things I'm looking forward to in the next year. Some where I have some high expectations and somewhere I have some low expectations, mostly because I think that it helps keep me feeling.   At least somewhat hopeful, even when I am in the middle of some pretty intense stuff, family and personal wise right now. So it's, this is an exercise for me to kind of keep my head, right. I'm not into the whole manifesting shit. I'm not into all of that. But what I do really like to think about is. Just reminding myself that there is stuff that I can be hopeful about, even when a lot of other shit in my life feels pretty rough at the moment.   Before I jump into these things, though, my name is Cindy Guentert Baldo. If this is your first time here, I'm glad you're here. And if this is not your first time here, thanks for coming back. And I did. To remind you that if you are not following me on Instagram at Lama letters or over on my YouTube channel and all these things are linked below, I have started my Vlogmas giveaways, where I am trying to get a shit ton of planners.   I've been reviewing out of my house and I will be rotating between Instagram and the YouTube community tab, running these on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays for a 24 hours. Each it's open internationally. All of those good things. The schedule will also be linked. So if that's something that you're into, if you want a free planner go and check them out, let's get into the things that I am looking forward to in 2022.   And first of all, because this is me, we're talking about, we have to talk about media and I guess one of the things I want to say before I jumped into it, cause I'm pretty sure I've mentioned at least one of these things in the previous episode, but one of the things, or two of the things I think. Maybe three of the things I mentioned in the last things I'm looking forward to, I have seen already, and I was extremely happy with all of them.   If you're interested in like actual reviews of things, let me know, tell me on Instagram, tag me in your stories, because I don't know if that's something you want from me, but at the very least I'll give you a high level. Look at those three. And that was Halloween kills, which I know some people. Like it was polarizing.   I enjoyed it. I felt like it was a solid entry. I I'm a big fan of the Halloween series. I enjoyed the Easter eggs and I enjoyed the brutality of it because apparently that's what I like in horror movies. I liked it. I can see the complaints people have with. Dune was outstanding. And I am so glad that they were able to Greenlight the second one, because that would have sucked so many balls socks, if they did not Greenlight that.   And currently we are in the middle of the wheel of time series. And again, for some book fans, it's a little polarizing because they've had to make changes, but I am of the opinion that it's an adaptation. They have to change things to make it translate for the show. And every episode for me is consecutively getting better and better.   And the casting is outstanding and the show is beautiful and I am loving it and I am just excited to keep watching it. And the thing I love the most is that my kids are super into it with me. It's something I have loved since I was their age. And so being able to watch it with them is amazing. And even Jesse is on board for it.   Good times, but those were the things that I was looking forward to media wise, the things I am looking forward to next year. And I think I've said, I've already mentioned some of them TV shows, uh, discovery of witches, which is coming out in January. It's the final season. They've done three seasons to adapt the three books.   And I have really enjoyed it. Several of you were the ones who got me into the books this last year to begin with. And then I went and I bought the shows on Amazon because I don't have the cable where I could stream it. I'm ready to watch the new season. I'm still here for it. You guys, so here for it, Matthew Good is a hot hot man.   And I just really enjoy the way they've been adapting it. And I'm excited to see how they bring it to a close. The other thing I'm looking forward to is how some of the dragon. Now I know some people are like you, but the last season of game of Thrones, well, Aside from the fact that, um, unlike game of Thrones, how so the dragon story is done, you can pick it up yourself.   It's the first volume of fire and blood. And I honestly would rather he finish the second volume of fire and blood that finished the series at this point, if he was only going to finish one thing, cause I loved it as somebody who likes reading history, like I'm nerd like that house of the dragon, which is basically a history book of the reign of the target.   Good times. And I am looking forward to the show. I think the casting so far has been outstanding. They're going to be having like 17 different dragons in the show. They all have different personalities. I'm looking forward to it and I've heard rumor, nothing confirmed that it will probably come out sometime in like April to June of 2022.   And I'm here for it. Not going to lie. Movie wise, uh, some of these, it should be no surprise to you. For example, Halloween ends the final of this trilogy that they're doing with Jamie Lee, Curtis and Daniel Gordon green, and all them looking forward to that, uh, screamed five is supposed to be coming out in January.   Okay. I remember hearing that like the original three from the first group of movies, you know, Courtney Cox and, uh, David Arquette and nev Campbell, weren't going to come back because west Craven has gone without there being a really good reason. And apparently the people who are making it are like huge fans of the original movies.   They really want to honor west Craven by making it there's a great cast, including what's his face from the boys. Uh, the one who plays huge. He's supposed to be in it. There's it just, I have enjoyed all of the screen movies to varying degrees. I was again, 16 when the first one came out. So it's very much in my wheelhouse of like self reverence, referential, horror film.   So I'm down to see it in the theater. Probably not, not with the new variant, but I will stream it wherever streaming is available. Assuming I have it. Uh, then there is on the horror movie list also. Which is Jordan peals. New movie has Daniel Kalua in it. And Steven Yuen from the walking dead. And, oh, I don't remember who else, but it has a great cast already.   There isn't a lot out there about it yet, but I thought that both us and, um, get out were outstanding, outstanding horror films. And I am I'm, I'm perfectly willing and ready and able, and my body is ready to watch any horror movie. Jordan Peele decides to be. And then on a non horror note, the SQL to enchanted is supposed to be coming out this next year disenchanted and it has the cast back and I loved and chanted.   It was the first movie cat saw in the theater. And I, I loved that. They were able to send up the princess movie tropes. While still being a good PR like, like scream, scream was excellent at both lampooning horror films while also being a really good horror film in chanted did a great job at lampooning Disney princess movies will also be in a really good Disney princess movie.   So. I would love to see that. And then, uh, the new Batman movie with team Edward, Robert Pattinson in it, I am very interested in it. I love Batman movies. I really enjoy them on all sorts of levels. Even George Clooney, nipple suit, even Ben Affleck actually thought Ben Affleck was not terrible. I thought he was very good, like older dark Knight returns, kind of comic book.   If you've read the dark Knight returns comic series. Frank Miller. I think he embodied that older world, weary Batman, and I'm excited to see Robert Pattinson's Batman, which is supposed to be sort of in between the origins of Batman, like Batman begins. And then the later Batman of like the dark Knight rises, it's supposed to be like Batman in his first year of Batman and where he still hasn't quite figured it out yet.   I think it's interesting. I would love to see it and yeah. Um, I'm team Edward for Batman. That's all I'm going to say about that. And I'm not actually a big fan of the Twilight series. I just like saying that I probably shouldn't have even had to tell you that anyway, now that we've talked sort of about some of the media, I'm looking forward to.   I said in my last thing, I'm looking forward to that. I'm looking forward for snow. I'm still looking forward to it. It hasn't really snowed here yet. It's actually 70 degrees today. It did have the, we did have a couple of flurries right around Thanksgiving at night, and that was exciting, but not enough to stick.   So I am still really looking forward to snowy season. I know you all are going to be saying like, yeah, you won't look forward to when you have to drive. Uh, it hasn't happened yet. So give me my illusions, delusions, whatever you want to call it for at least a little while longer. Another thing I'm looking forward to in 2022 is exploring more of the Denver slash Colorado area.   We haven't really had the opportunity to do much of that in large part, because since we've gotten here both Jesse and I have been really swamped with work. And then on top of that, there have been health issues for various members of our family, including myself that have needed to be addressed. So the most exploring I've done is shopping and.   Doctor's offices. So being able to explore more of it, we really want to go to red rocks amphitheater, whether it's, I don't know if we want to go see music yet, because again, the variants that are coming out, that that's not, it's not something I want to bring into my life, but I've heard the sunrise.   There is gorgeous. There's a lot of things we'd like to do. We just haven't had the chance yet. And I would really like to prioritize that in the next year, which will be something that will likely happen when I start setting goals for the new. On top of that, I would really like to see how Lucy and Layla's relationship is developing.   I've mentioned it, I think a couple of times in the podcast, but maybe I have, maybe I have it. I don't remember. We adopted a puppy, Layla. She is a black lab mix. We think she's mixed with a little bit of pit bull. We got her from the Colorado retriever rescue. So she's a rescue puppy and we have let her and our cat Lucy really.   Take their time getting to know each other with an emphasis on Lucy, driving how much they are actually experiencing each other, because Layla is totally good with cats because the foster home, she was in. Had a ton of dogs and one cat and the cat was the alpha. And she quickly learned that the cat is the boss.   She really wants to be Lucy's friend when he's not in the mood to play with her, she will whine, but she won't bother him. And just last night, I got to watch them playing with each. They were chasing each other up and down the stairs. It was really cute. So I'm excited to see how their relationship develops both because it, it it's good for both of them.   I think Lou has been a little lonely since Loki died, so it's, it's just something I'm excited to watch because it's been really cute so far. Another thing I'm looking forward to art-wise is trying larger scale art projects. This is actually something that has been on my mind for a while. And I am now at the point where I would really like to start exploring that that may be something that I hope to either get some for some Christmas money or I don't know what, but maybe an easel, maybe try doing some acrylics.   I don't know if I want to watercolor on a larger scale, but I'm really interested in doing a quick acrylics on a larger scale. That's just something I'm super interested in and it's not something I would necessarily be doing for like my art prints or anything like that. At the moment, it would be for me in my own enrichment and, and practicing of new skills, which is very important.   If you are any sort of creative, it is always important to be forever learning because there is always something more to learn and you, that anything you learn in different arenas can often be applied to different areas of your creative practice. It's important to me to try some new things. The idea now that especially that I have room where I could leave an easel set up on the regular, I really would like to get started on trying some larger format pieces of art.   That's that's high on my list. Now I will say that while this is not meant to be like what I'm looking forward to work-wise for the next year. I, there is at least a little bit of work coming into this and that. Trying out different things, lines of products. So for my product based side of my business of my work, like I do all sorts of different work.   I make content, I freelance, I have a community on Patrion and I also have an Etsy shop that I sell. Prince of my original artwork. And one thing I did this holiday season was introduced some new products. I sold some vinyl sticker decals. I sold some bookmarks and I sold some calendars and that was really fun.   And so not only am I interested in experimenting with different kinds of art for my own enrichment, I'm also interested in releasing just some different things, whether it is a full. Well fuller, I don't know how you would say it, but like a line of bookmarks with more of my fuckery flowers on them, as I've gotten requests that people can collect them to maybe putting some of my pattern work and other things that I've been doing as well, kind of to, again, continue to hone my skills maybe on fabric or a wallpaper, or on like going through like a print on demand site, like Spoonflower or.   Society six or whatever to sell, like mugs or pillows or whatever. I don't know. I'm just, I'm curious about like testing things because it's, it's fun to see my stuff. And I've always had a lot of fun when Kristin has sent me from Christiana designs, like a mug or whatever, like things outside of stickers that she's put my art on.   The art I do for her is one style of art and the art I'm working on for my. Different. And so it just, it's something that I'm interested in maybe experimenting with. I think I've come to the conclusion. I won't release new fuckery flowers except for the holidays. So like once a year, because they do take quite a bit of time to actually paint.   It's a series of 12 and each painting is hours of work, but I don't know. It's just something I'm looking forward to next year is maybe trying some experimentation with that. That's on my list. Again, of things I'm looking for. Now house wise, a lot of, you know, we moved to Denver this past year and I actually will be doing a podcast kind of thinking about the last year and everything else, as well as the videos that'll be coming out on my YouTube channel.   Rob, talk a little bit more about the move and everything else, but one of the things I'm looking forward to this next year is really settling. Like we already have settled in. And one of the things our family commented on when they were here this last month was how it already feels lived in here. But there's a lot of things below the surface that really could use some love.   Like I thought I would get more organizing done in the closets and I just have not had the time and I have so many. That just, I could do an entire YouTube series just on organizing all of the closets in this house and have a good amount of content. I would like to really get shit organized in the closets.   I would really like to get some art on the walls, which is something I'm already working on right now for the main level of the house. But like, Getting some of the smaller details taken care of in this next year, while we're both exploring and really trying to live into this house because we love this house.   That's something that I really am looking forward to. It's like a nesting kind of instinct that I am feeling pretty hard right now. Hard. Also speaking of the house, taking on some home projects. Now I am not talking about large home projects. One of the things I did appreciate when we bought this house is that it's not a project house.   The previous owners put a lot of work into it, which we really appreciate. And one of my requirements, when it came to buying the new house here was. Not getting a project house because our house in Napa was a project house. It was a hoarder house. We had to put a new kitchen into it, new bathroom into it.   And we did most of that work ourselves. It was a lot of work and a pain in the ass, but there are little things that have been on my list since we bought the place. And there are things I'd like to like put some time into, especially as another big focus for me this next year is going to be setting boundaries around my work and personal time so that I have space and time to do some of these personal projects instead of always.   Into work. One that comes to mind specifically is the cabinets in my laundry room. They are still the original cabinets from the house and the cabinets are in great shape, but the doors I would like to update them either put new doors or maybe paint them. I'm not sure, but I would like to update the laundry room cabinets and there's several of them.   And I know that would be probably a project in and of itself. That's something I'm actually looking forward to doing. Cause I think I could, it's a small enough scale where I don't need to get like a contractor to do it and I could probably figure most of it out on my own, but it's large enough where the impact for me, especially since I spent so much time in there, it would, it would be.   Another thing I'm really looking forward to is, um, like I said, the closet organization, uh, RJ really would like his room painted. And while we might do that professionally, I like to get that done for him. Cat has actually discovered they love the murals in their rooms, so they're going to stick with those.   But RJ would like to have his room painted and I am, I want to get that done for him. And on that same note, another thing I'm looking forward to is discovering and rediscovering hobbies. This again, goes back to really making sure I have time for myself, but there are things I'd really like to do for one, I have really started enjoying the small plants that I've been taking care of and for the most part I've kept them alive.   So I would kind of like to try some larger ones in the next year. I'd also like to do some gardening. I don't know how much gardening, because bending over is really hard for me. But gardening is one of those things that I've always wanted to do. I've aspired to be a gardener and I have never, ever put the time into it.   So who knows, but that is something I'd like to maybe try. Something that I have already been doing. And I'm looking forward to doing a lot more of is a stir frying and using a walk for cooking. I have actually made some new recipes that my family adores and we tested them on our various family members when they were here over the last month.   And they loved them. So getting better with walk cooking is a hobby. Like I love to cook cooking in general as a hobby for me, getting back into baking would be great, especially with the altitude change, but walk, cooking specifically, like. Be real honest. The thing I would love to figure out is that thing where you take, you can't see what I'm doing, but like, imagine I'm like doing like a winking off kind of hand gesture, but like where you shake the walk and like flip the stuff in the walk, I've always been too scared to try that with eggs or with pancakes or at the walk.   That's something that maybe by the end of 20, 22, I will have tried and been successful. That's a hope, but hobbies, hobbies in general, this also can go back to the larger scale art painting as well. You can tell a lot of these things are really they're, they're mixed in with each other, and you're probably going to hear a lot more of these when I actually set my goals for next year, because I think a lot of them are going to sort of surface there.   I would really like to. Rediscover a church community. So that was something that I had on my list for this year and with COVID and everything else that really was not feasible. I miss my Napa people a lot and I would love to reconnect with a new church community. They have started doing hybrid in person and at home services.   And I'd like to go in and just meet some people and introduce myself. The biggest thing that's kind of keeping me back is the, uh, the new variants. It's just it's stressful, but that is something that hopefully depending on how the world looks in the next year is something I would like to do in the next year.   And if all goes well by the fall, I would love to be at a point with a new church community where I am considering rejoining a choir with the church. The one that we are looking at has a lot of a very robust music program. Hi on my list and singing in choir at my church was one of my favorite things to do singing in my quartet.   My quintet, one of my favorite things to do the choir signups happened a few weeks ago and I very much considered doing it. Cause that's how I got into my previous church was by joining the choir very early on. I just don't have the time at the moment. I, my time is very splintered and I have not gotten to a place where I feel confident that I can make that time for myself.   So I don't want it to be something that feels like a burden to me, but it is high on my list of things to prioritize in the next year. Assuming I'm able to start meeting people at the church and assuming that's the church we want to stick with and that joining the choir is something that I still want to do once those sign-ups start.   So I talked about a bunch of things I really am looking forward to in this next year and at the heart of all of them and probably at the heart of my goal setting for this next year, which I haven't done yet, but I've been thinking a lot about it is really developing a good mix of work and personal life setting boundaries.   Trying to find some sort of harmony, all of those things. It's, it's high on my list. You're going to hear this over and over again from me, both in podcasts and on my YouTube videos and probably on my Instagram, because it is something that I am struggling so much with right now. And I really want to get some of my personal life back.   When your life is work and I love my work, please don't mistake me. I do. I'm doing stuff I love, but it's still work. Which means that a, there are times I don't love it. And B sometimes the things that used to bring me relaxation are not part of my work. So by their nature, they don't relax me anymore. On top of that, I also am so like, feeling so awful by being in kidney failure.   And having kids who are dealing with health problems themselves, that my life feels like just an endless hamster wheel of work and feeling like shit. And I want to find some room in my life for things that make me happy that fulfill me, that relax me, or just keep me in touch with the rest of my life outside of those aspects.   Even if it's not relaxing to redo cabinets or even if grocery shopping or whatever doesn't necessarily relax me. I'm starting to feel out of touch with parts of my life. And so one thing I am looking forward to in this next year is re redistributing the way my life looks reconnecting with parts of it and making sure that other parts that are getting that are kind of commanding more of my attention are, are given a much more reasonable level of attention.   So that I can take some of that and read distributed elsewhere. If that makes any sense, that's more than anything. What I'm looking forward to in this next year is making that a priority and seeing the ripple effects that it has and the other aspects of my life. And now that I've said all that, I really want to pick up my goal planner for next year and start setting my goals.   But I haven't decided which planner that is yet. So anyway, I'd love to find out from you something you are looking forward to. In the next year. So if you are on Instagram post, like a picture of this, whatever in your stories mentioned something you're looking forward to next year and tag me so I can see it.   It would make me really happy. Share this if you want to. I don't know. Just, I love talking to you. I don't care if this podcast gets big, I'm just happy to make it. That's all the only goal I really have for it is, is connecting. So let's connect as always. This podcast is sponsored by my patrons.

Happy and healthy Thirsty Thursday! Today is a monumental day for the Jappy Jaws podcast. Not only did Lindsay bring on her first in-person guest, she brought in the baby Jaw, her sister - Sloane. Sloane's appearance came unexpectedly, however, bringing great insight to the table. Your favorite Jappy hostess with the mostest sat down with Sloane to discuss what it's really like growing up as sisters. With their five and a half year age difference, getting older looked a tad different for the both of them. For the 2020-2021 school year, Sloane was a fully remote high school junior who battled through adversity. She talks about how the year took a toll on her, but prepared her for what is to come in the future. Being dealt the COVID hand, Sloane quickly realized how important it is to cherish every moment of her childhood. They also talk about Sloane's first college visit, and what she is anticipating come the fall. Being an incoming freshman, there is so much to prepare for but Sloane has high hopes for her college experience. As we all know, Lindsay's favorite part of the Bachelor franchise is the 'Tell All' episodes. Wanting to bring in some fresh perspective, Lindsay gave Sloane the task of commentating on this week's Men Tell All. With little to no knowledge of the franchise, and especially on Michelle's season, Sloane gives some outsider perspective on the men we have watched the last few weeks. Taking notes, asking questions, and deciding if the franchise is worth her time after all. Sister knows best, right? Happy listening!

I really suck at challenges. Hi everyone. Welcome back to the uncurated life podcast. And today I just, I need to talk about this. I need to tell you about my suckiness at challenges and why I think that might be why you might suck at challenges and what I think might happen as we move forward.   But before I do. Just a quick reminder. My shop will be closing this Friday, December 10th for the rest of 2021 to avoid any mishaps with shipping because the shipping world right now is a shambles. So I want to make sure that if you have anything you want to order for gifts or anything like that, that you get them in time, at least as best as I can control it.   So yeah, if you have any orders you want to put in. Of like prince or whatever, whatnot for the holidays, make sure to get them in by the 10th. I will still continue to ship out until I'm done shipping out, but that's when everything's going to close and then I will reopen it in January. Anyway, move forward.   Sucking the challenge. So here's the thing, here's the irony of this situation. I have been hosting two challenges for several years now. My alum love lettering every damn day challenge, which encourages you to letter a little bit every damn day to get practice, because it's the only way you're going to get better.   Right. And the other one is random doodles, which I just started doing myself before. It was a challenge and people liked it. So I started doing that. And again, it's meant to do a little bit of doodling every day to get better at it right now. In the last year or so though, I haven't actually participated in either of my challenges.   I have created them and posted them. I have sometimes set up a section of my bullet journal to do them, and then I don't do them. And one just it's like, am I bored? Like, what's the question here? What, why, why is it that I put the effort into putting these out there? And then I don't do them. Well, first of all, I will add that I put them out there because other people ask for them, but I I'm just not into it.   And you would think, okay, we'll find one that you're into, but I haven't really done that either. So. To kind of start this when I'm talking about challenges, what I'm referring to mainly is creative challenges that you can find on the internet, like creative type challenges, geared towards getting you to do something every day, something specific for a specific amount of time.   Usually because they want, the challenge is geared towards you getting practice at something, building a habit of something, helping you find inspiration. Blah-blah-blah, there's a bunch of challenges out there, including some that are relatively well known, especially in creative communities. Like the a hundred day project where you pick some kind of creative thing and you do it everyday for a hundred days.   The new one is starting, I think in January. And I have been considering doing it, but doing it on my own terms. But ironically, again, I'm doing an episode about how I suck at challenges and then thinking, oh, but maybe I'll do that now. Who fucking knows another one? That's pretty well known in the art world is ink Tober.   Where are you going to list of prompts? And you're supposed to draw something with ink every day, for a month with the, the idea, being that by drawing it with ink, instead of penciling in, you have to like, go with what you draw rather than make I making mistake. I don't know something like that anyway. So my challenges are a month long and therefore lettering and doodling, like I said, The idea here is to, especially to get in the habit of something.   If you do something every single day for a month or for a hundred days, or whatever, the chances of you building a habit are higher than if you weren't doing anything at all. I vibe with that, I vibe with the idea of doing a little bit of something every single day to build the habit I vibe with somebody else, giving you creative prompts to help you like spur your creative.   I held a vibe with the idea of practicing every day, because it's the only way you're going to get better. And I make my own challenges because I think that it's fun to get different people's perspectives out there. So why do I suck at actually doing them? I started to try and brainstorm why I thought no, I'm going to also say upfront.   I don't think I have any answers in this video. I'm sort of musing here to try and figure some shit out, but I will tell you. Maybe my thought process will help. Like you may be able to light something in you, and then you can tell me because you found the answer and then we'll all be happy. I don't know.   But the first thing that kind of came to mind was the length of time. So there have been times where I've set myself a challenge for like a week and I've usually done pretty well with that. So maybe I need a weekly challenge. Maybe, maybe doing something for a month or for a hundred days is just too long.   And I just need something to inspire me for a week. Maybe that's it. I don't know. But maybe for some people, a week's not long enough, maybe it's what I'm doing. So one of the things I learned with the a hundred day project was if it's too complicated, I'm not going to do it. If it's something I feel like I don't need to do.   Then I'm not going to do it. I have to be really, really interested and engaged with what I'm doing to have a higher chance of following through and not getting bored with it. So I'm similar to those people who, when I was a kid, I would like bounce like a hummingbird from hobby to hobby. I be super into something and then I would drop it like a bad habit and move forward.   Right. And that's eased a little bit as I've turned into. It ha I still do some of that, but I, it has eased a little bit, but I think it's still manifesting itself in how I approach things like challenges. When I did the a hundred day project the last time it was the farthest I'd ever gotten. I think I got like halfway through it and it was because I gave myself a five minute timer.   I spattered some ink or something on a paper, and then I'd make flowers out of it in a quick timeframe. I think what maybe held me up there was that I was filming it everyday for Instagram, making something content, I think is another way to quickly kill a challenge for me. Does it require me to be in a certain place if it's a creative situation and this is actually something I'm running into with my planning situation at the moment as well.   And it's something that I, I talked about in a recent plan with me. I am trying to kind of come to terms with the fact that because I don't want to work on Saturdays and all of my planners and all of my, everything are down in the basement, which is very much my office. I'm not likely to go down there.   So I kind of lose the thread on Saturdays and. I want to figure out a way to do that. And I don't know if that means separating my personal and work planning completely from each other, because right now there's somewhat separated and keeping my personal planner upstairs and not in the basement, except when I'm actually planning out my week.   That might be a thing I don't know yet, but like, If it's creative and it's something I'm supposed to do every day. If I have to come to my office on like, I'm trying not to do that on Saturdays, because once I enter my office, it's like, it sucks me in like a fucking wormhole when I was living in Napa.   And my office was in the middle of everything. It was a little different, but here, because I'm like walking down into the basement, it's like being summoned to the office alter and it's a little, a little, not what I want on a damn trying to fully take off. Another thing. That's something I've been thinking about is like, why, why am I doing it?   Am I doing it to get better at something? Am I doing it out of a sense of obligation, which is how my challenge has felt for a while. There was a while where I was putting the framework in my planner this last year to do my lettering challenge. But I think I was doing it more out of a sense of obligation.   Like, okay, well I created these challenge. I should do them because otherwise, like, am I a poser? I don't know. Am I doing it to keep up with the internet Jones? You know, I think that when I did December daily or when I limped through the first few days of December daily, a couple of years ago, maybe three or four years ago on flood during blog MIS I think I did it because everybody else was doing it.   And it felt like material for blog, miss. And I was like, I'll probably really like it for getting that my entire life scrapbooking has never been successful for me. Any sort of like scrapbooking, any memory keeping I've tried that before, and it just never seems to work for me. And yet I still. Do it. And so I wonder, like, what is my motivation?   Like is my motivation? I think I'll enjoy it or I'll be good at it. Or is like deep down is my motivation. Like what everybody else is doing. It's I got to keep up with the internet Joneses. I'm fucking fallible. And I am quite susceptible to this shit. You guys, I know that if you're doing a challenge, Situation like that, especially if it's a month or longer, there are going to be times when you're over it, but I ideally you would be all in on it.   So you push through, right? Like when you're doing anything like that, there's going to be times when you're in chanted with it. And then there's times when you're like, fuck this, but the fuck, this moments in order to get through them, you need to be like invested in all in, on not only the process, but also the outcome.   And I don't think I've ever been invested enough. Maybe I'll be invested in the outcome, but not the process or vice versa. I don't think I've found the magic for me of being invested in the why I'm doing it, how I'm doing it, where I'm due, although like the, who, what, where, when, why, whatever fucking shit.   Like, I think that kind of applies to challenges, especially creative ones. And if you can't fulfill enough of those. Then when it gets boring or it gets annoying or it gets tedious. What incentive do you have to finish it? I'm pretty sure that for me, with most challenges I have attempted ever since I started this online.   Been doing things like creative for the public man kind of a situation that my biggest incentive was to not look like an ass because I stopped doing it. When I'm posting on Instagram, that's not a good enough reason. So. I need to like really think is there, do I a, do I need challenges in my life at all?   And B if I do, I need to find one that is, is something that I can be invested enough in, in enough ways that when my tendency to slack off on it or to stop doing. Comes up that I have a reason to keep going enough to push me through keeping going. And if you're hating something and you're miserable doing it, don't fucking do it.   But like, I'm not talking about hating as much as I'm talking about just general annoyance, I guess. So I don't have an answer. As to why I suck at challenges, except maybe that is the answer, right? Maybe it's just, I've just not invested enough in doing them. I'm invested in creating them for you guys, but I'm not invested in actually doing them myself at the moment when it comes to lettering practice, I'm not invested in it because I do enough of that freelance wise to keep me fresh.   I'm not invested in. Like the doodling as well. Like it's I do enough of that for work. So maybe the challenge I need is something that's not work-related so that maybe I can exercise my creativity in another way, but then I need to make sure I've defined why it's important to me, why the outcome is important to me and why the process is important to me enough.   So that, that will help sustain me when I get to the boring part. As for my challenges, you may be asking, why are you still going to do them if you're not invested in them? And I'm not sure yet, I'm not sure if I'm going to keep doing them as of January, or if I'm going to change them, combine them, do something else.   I'm not really sure yet. I know that this year doing the Spotify playlist was so much fun for the lettering challenge and the little scenes for the doodling challenge has been a lot of fun, but I'll be honest. I am burning out on creating them as well. And so I may put those on hiatus and try something different, but I'm not sure yet.   So stay tuned for that and make sure you follow me at Lama letters or check out my newsletter and my website. Everything's linked in the show notes because that's where shit like that is going to pop up. So like you'll, you'll find it eventually. But in the meantime, I'm going to just be okay with the fact that I, I suck at challenges and that I would like to find one that resonates with me, but I'm not going to stress myself out about it because.   W I don't need to keep up with the internet Joneses. I am totally fine. Just doing what I feel like doing. And if everybody and their mother loves doing like all the Allie Edward shit, cause that seems to be where the internet Jones is, tend to hit me. Then Allie Edwards your life away, but I don't really feel like doing it and I'm not good.   And I'm okay with that. If you resonate with this, please share it on Instagram because I would love for other people to find this, because I'm sure there are more of you out there that attempt to do a challenge and then suck at it. And they're like, why the fuck do I suck at this? I feel like I'm not the only one.   So if this resonates with you, share it on Instagram, tag me at Lama letters in your stories, and I will look for it. I'll look it up. In the meantime, don't forget my shop closes this Friday. So check it all out. Everything's linked in the show notes. And until next time friends have a great day and peace out.

Welcome back to the uncurated life podcast, where I take personality tests and tell you all about them for your amusement. That's not the only thing we do here, but that is a series that I started relatively recently. So this is the second episode. The first episode was the D I S C assessment.   And I will link that in the show notes, if you would like to check it out and you haven't already, that was episode 1 33, but today we are going to be taking a look at the Darlene of Christian Instagram, the Enneagram test. Now here's the thing with personality tests. I'm generally skeptical about them, but enough people asked me to take them.   That I decided to just do this for the amusement of the internet. So I promise I go into these tests with an open mind and I am not being snarky when I answered the questions and actually take the test. Even if I'm snarky. When I talk about the test, when I take it, I'm taking it seriously. You may not believe me, but I swear I am now before we get into the actual test, give me a moment to mention that my latest series series two of my fuckery flowers, which are my flagship art print.   They're a beautiful flowers in botanicals. Mixed media paintings that I create prints out of, and they're realistic, but hidden within them as a naughty word. Fucking love them. I have a new series of 12 launching this coming Thursday, the 25th, the link is in the show notes and the shop is only going to be open until December 10th and then I'm going to shut it down for the holidays.   So. Shipping does not bite us in the ass. So just be sure to check it out when you're able, there will be some bundles that will be limited edition showing up just for black Friday weekend, blah, blah, blah. Check it out. Let's get to the test. So what is the Enneagram? So from the website, Truity they say.   The Enneagram is a system of personality typing that describes patterns in how people interpret the world and manage their emotions. The Enneagram describes nine personality types and maps. Each of these out on a nine pointed diagram, which helps to illustrate how. Relate to one another. The Enneagram is mostly used for personal self knowledge and personality development, offering a powerful tool for better understanding your core motivations and applying that knowledge to all areas of your life, including conflict resolution, team dynamics, leadership, and emotional intelligence, because it identifies opportunities for development for each individual type.   It has become widely used in. Such as counseling psychotherapy, business development, parenting, and education and quote. So like the quote said there are nine types and I pulled these from the Enneagram institute.com note that they're highlights. They're not the full spectrum of each type. Just to give you an idea of each type.   So type one is. A is principled purposeful, self controlled and a perfectionist type two is generous. Demonstrative people-pleasing and possessive type three is adaptable, excelling, driven, an image conscious type fours, expressive, dramatic self-absorbed and temperamental type five is perceptive innovative, secretive, and isolated.   Type six is engaging responsible, anxious, and suspicious type seven is spontaneous, versatile acquisitive and scattered type eight is self-confident decisive, willful and confrontational type nine is receptive, reassuring, complacent, and resigned. So it's nine types. It's a whole bunch of information. If you want to read more, like I said, links will all be in the show notes.   Now I said at the beginning, the Darlene of Christian Instagram now, well, the Enneagram is not rooted in Christianity in recent years. It has really taken root in a lot of the communities. The first time I attempted to take this test a couple of years ago, the free test I found was explicitly Christian.   And I note right the fuck out of there because I'm not Christian. And. A ton of the books I've found on different Enneagram types are written from a Christian perspective, like devotionals for type threes or how to be a type three. And then they don't say that they're Christian, but then you look at them and they're pretty fucking Christian.   It's not my jam dude. And so I'm not like in. The test I did find is science-based allegedly, what does it say? Science-based or scientifically validated force choice, personality test. Uh, it didn't seem to be Christian. When I looked at it, it costs $12. And according to the website takes about 40 minutes to complete.   Now there are plenty of free tests out there. You just need to be careful if you're not somebody who wants to take one from a Christian perspective to just keep an eye out for that. And on top of that, a lot of them will give you information, but you gotta like give them your email to get the rest of it and blah, blah, blah.   So just that, that's the point. The one I am taking is the. Test the Riso Hudson Enneagram type indicator routine version 2.5. And that is linked in the description. So. It says here that it has been independently scientifically validated rather than just indicating your basic type. It produces a full personality profile across all nine types, providing you a unique portrait relative indicating your relative strengths and weaknesses of the nine types within your overall personnel.   All right. So that's the one I'm taking. I will pause you here and go take it. If you want to take one of the tests and do it with me, then post, we can post about it on Instagram stories, blah, blah, blah. But I'll be back. I'll be back. All right. So I am done with the test. It went pretty quickly for me. I wound up doing it about 20, 25 minutes, but I tend to read really quickly and I didn't hesitate.   There were a couple where I think I read the question wrong. So I went back and was right about that and then answered it. So according to my results, my highest Enneagram type is two with seven being very close second. And then my lowest was type eight. So. I looked at this and two is the helper.   Generally twos are caring, empathetic, warm, thoughtful, appreciative, generous, other oriented, tactile affectionate, well, intention and demonstrative. They get into conflict by being people pleasing, flattering, ingratiating, clingy, worried, possessive insincere, seductive self-important, and self deceptive. And at their best twos are encouraging, loving self nurturing.   Constant joyous, humble, forgiving, gracious, and compassionate. So I see aspects of myself in this one, but I think that the second one, which is very close to the first. Is a little bit more me because I, one of the things I read about the Enneagram is that your original personality type is the way you like.   It's something that's constant throughout your life. And I feel like a lot of the aspects of the two are things that I have developed through like working on myself, but seven, the enthusiastic, I read that one and I was like, Hmm. So sevens are excitable spontaneous, curious, optimistic, eager, outgoing, future oriented, adventurous variety, seeking quick and talkative.   They get into conflicts by being scattered, distracted, restless, impatient thrill-seeking escapist, overextended, irresponsible, demanding, and excessive. And at their best, they are appreciative bountiful, thoughtful, accomplished, versatile, receptive, grateful content, quiet and passionate. Type seven exemplifies the desire for freedom and variety and for exploring the many rich experiences that life offers they're spontaneous and upbeat.   They find life exhilarating that the kind of people who and see like this also in some ways like there's aspects of this that are very much me, but there are aspects that I'm not adventurous. And I don't feel my social calendar like.   So there is that. Now one of the things I wanted to look at to see if maybe I could figure out which one of these I was, and I could see the, now I'm going to the third one, which was five, generally fives are focused, observant, curious, insightful expert studious. Complex perceptive, whimsical, profound unsentimental ex no, this isn't me as much either.   I don't know you guys. I need to sit down and talk to Jesse about this and be like, which one it ma, but I feel like, Ooh, sorry about the odd by goodness, but I feel like seven. So I'm going to go to the personality dynamics and variations to see if I can kind of. Kinda hammer this out under stress. Seven goes to average one sevens value their spontaneity and tend to follow their impulses for better or for worse.   As a result, they can become scattered in their attention and energy leaping from one idea to the next, from one activity to another. While this can be exciting. It often leaves seven's frustrated with themselves because they feel like they are not accomplishing as much as they would like to. At such times they begin to behave like average ones pulling in the reins on themselves and trying to get more organized and self controlled.   But because they are trying to impose order and control on themselves, they begin to feel trapped and restricted. This just makes them more frustrated, impatient, and irritable. They may, for instance, become critical of their own creativity. Creative. Before they have had a chance to develop them. Similarly, they cannot avoid feeling disappointment with people and aspects of their environment.   Nothing meets their expectations and they can become harsh and perfectionistic be critical with themselves. And with others, see that that is fucking like razor sharp. Security seven goes to an average five sevens often feel it is their duty to entertain others and keep their environment positive and exciting over time.   This can be exhausting even for sevens, when they are tired of being on for everyone, they may choose to withdraw even from their intimates and seek seclusion. And noninterference, this can come as a shock to others. You've been out having fun with everyone else. Why are you so quiet and unavailable? They no longer want to put out energy for anyone else and can become almost obsessively focused and preoccupied.   They can also be surprisingly withdrawn and isolated, like fives, their body language and aloof responses. Let others know they want space and privacy. They make no effort to entertain or energize others like fives. They retreat from contact and attempt to restore their energy. Again. This is very much me, the only real exception being this, being a shock to others.   But I think it's because my family and my friends know me well enough to know that there are times where I am just like fucking no. Integration seven goes to healthy five, a sevens learned to relax and tolerate their uncomfortable feelings. More completely. They stop using their restless minds to distract themselves.   Their minds become quiet, clear, and focused, allowing sevens to tap more deeply into their reserves of creativity and insight. They're able to prioritize not by imposing some arbitrary order on themselves, but by following their true interests and staying with them, thus, they become far more productive, satisfied.   Satisfying as companions, their capacity to find connections and to synthesize information is not drawn off into tangents. They produce results and this gives them grounds for real confidence in themselves and in life. As they experienced the world more deeply, they find each moment fascinating, profound and regulatory.   The idea of boredom becomes absurd as they savor the incredible mysteries of existence. See like, This I can totally get. And I, this is making me think I'm the seven, cause I'm going to look at the same things for two and I'm not going to read them completely   like the resentment for two under stress. They, um, can't maintain their loving attitude and. They turn into like an egocentric controlling. I can be egocentric and dominating, but I don't turn into like an egocentric Dick. When I feel like my shit has been rejected. I tend to withdraw when my shit has been rejected.   So I, this is I'm the opposite of this. I tend, I don't, they, what they're saying is that under stress twos tend to outburst aggressive, blah, blah, blah. And I tend to pull into myself with the security one. It says they may risk expressing their neediness and darker impulses. Again, that's not really me and the integration.   Yeah. See, I think just looking at all of these things about the two, it also says. It's very possessive and like people pleasing. And that's not me. I'm not really sure how I got to that. But with seven, the relationship issues. So some relationship problems can include these becoming so involved with expressing their thoughts and ideas that they do not really listen to others.   That would be me becoming impatient or critical of other slower pace. Just ask Jesse getting flighty or to seeking distractions. When important relationship challenges arise, fearing that others will not support them. If they're down or depressed, expecting the partner to provide gratification, entertainment, or support immediately on demand and being unwilling or very slow to make commitments.   A lot of this very much resonates with me. And one of the things I will say that with some of those things, they have been problems for me in the past and having a really healthy relationship has helped mitigate some of those things. So I actually think that the seven might be the closest one to me, although the biggest part of seven, that is not me as I am not adventurous, like at all.   So the other thing that usually happens with an Enneagram test is you might be able to know what your wing is. So it's the number that is the closest to your number on either side that you score the highest in. And for me, it would be six according to this. So let's take a look at that. Generally sixes are reliable, hardworking, organizing vigilant, dutiful, evaluating, persevering, cautious, anxious, believing, and doubting, conservative, and liberal six is get into conflicts by being pessimistic, defensive, evasive, negative worrying, doubtful negativistic, reactive, suspicious, and blaming, and at their best they're courageous cooperative disciplined, grounded, secure, faithful.   Self-expressive funny and affectionate. And the relationship issues for a six are getting testing the other person to see if he or she is going to stay getting over committed, causing sixes, to feel pressured and taking advantage of clamming up and not expressing their feelings or venting. The stream of anxiety is alternating between feeling dependent and needy and feeling divided to find a rebellious like rain, hot or cold becoming suspicious.   Doubting the Goodwill of others towards them and blaming people for their own anxieties. And there's a lot here. I can resonate as well. Although not as much as with a seven. Um, the other thing that I can see here is that here, for example, security, when six is feel secure, they begin to deal with stress by simply shutting down and becoming indifferent to their surroundings.   So like there are aspects of this. So if I was going to take a, like, read this and interpret it, I would say that I'm a seven wings, six. So an enthusiast wing loyalist, um, I would imagine that it's a six for my wing, not an eight, because eight was the lowest on my score. What do I think about this? I mean, honestly, most of what I'm looking at here is stuff that, like I already knew about myself and the suggestions for like levels of development and everything like healthy levels.   So like where is it at number seven? One of the things they say is at a healthy place at your best, I would assimilate experiences in depth, making them grateful and appreciative for what they have becoming odd by the simple wonders of life, joyful and ecstatic. Intimidations of spiritual reality of the boundless goodness of life.   I don't think I'm there. I think actually level three. So the lowest healthy level before you hit. Um, average levels is become accomplished. Achievers, generalists who do many things well, practical, productive, usually prolific cross fertilizing areas of interests. I think that that's kind of where I'm at with this, but I'm not sure, you know, and I mean, this, I don't know how much this is all a thing, but I appreciate the look of this.   It, the only thing in here that feels slightly. Christian. Like it doesn't feel Christian at all, except there is Nope. That's about it. I was going to say that like, one of their things is like, they talk about like, your passion is gluttony or plat. Passion is avarice, but they're not all the seven deadly sins, so, okay.   They're just using that verbiage, but yeah. Um, so I'm going to come out of this St. I'm a seven wing six and Ooh. They also have examples of who, who are sevens and who are whatever. If I'm looking at who sevens are some sevens pulling out of here, we got Joe Biden, but we also got Sarah Pailin. We got Katy Perry and Brittany Spears and Goldie Hawn and cameras.   There's a lot of actors on here. There's a lot of actors on here. Elton John is on here. Leonard Bernstein is on here. Who else? JFK is on your Mozart. Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin. I mean, he had gout to I Kandinsky and artist. I really admire is on here. Jim Carey, David do Cavani. There's a bunch of actors and so on.   And so this makes sense, like a lot of like people in like the arts seem to be on here. So that's, that's cool. Anyway, I don't know you guys, I don't know if this is garbage or if this is realistic, but I will say that it's an interesting way of looking at things, looking at things like how you resolve conflict and how you go about your life in that way.   So I do appreciate that. And I wonder if once I'm done with all of these personality tests, if I set them next to each other and see, do they kind of inter in line with each other or was I just in different moods those days? Cause sometimes I wonder when I'm taking these tests, um, is it just based on my mood that day?   Like today, am I seven and tomorrow mine eight, like who fucking knows. Right. Anyway, if you take the Enneagram, let me know, let me know what you are. Tag me on Instagram at Lama letters. And don't forget to check out my shop. All the information is in the show notes, as well as links to all of this shit.   The fuckery flowers are releasing later this week.

And today's story today's episode. I talked a little bit about it in a recent plan with me, but I'm going to talk more about it today. I just, you guys like.   This is one of those situations where so many different things cross, and I could spend hours talking about it, but I'm not, I'm going to zero in on probably the most obvious point for me to zero in on. But yet at the same time has been one of the lesser talked about aspects of this entire story. And the story I'm referring to is the bad art friend story.   So if you do not know what it's about, I'm going to give you a very brief overview. I gave a bigger overview in, I plan with me and I will link the original story, which I recommend you read from the New York times, because it's a fascinatingly written story that kind of. Presents things in a way where it sort of serves like a Rorschach test for you based on who you side with.   And of course there's a lot of other articles dissecting it online, but I'm going to give you enough context so that you understand my grievances or my things I want to talk about. But before I get into. What I'm talking about today, I would like to make sure that you are signed up for my newsletter, which I send out on the first Monday of every month.   And then I might send out an alert if something like opens up when the calendars went on sale this week or this last week. But. This month's freebie is a coloring sheet of my fuckery rose, which I think is really adorable. And if you sign up during this month, you'll get it automatically. Everybody who's on the newsletter.   Got it already, but you'll get it this month. But if you're not on the newsletter before the end of November, you're not going to get this. It's only people who are either on it or sign up for it in November. And. I really think it's fucking cute, especially since I'm releasing the new series this month as well.   Anyway, newsletter link, as well as all of the articles that I'll be referencing are all in the show notes. So be sure to check them out. All right. So here is. Here is a bit of the story. And it will say upfront that this story touches on so many different nerves, right? It touches on racism and classism, how we perceive friendship versus the reality of a friendship, plagiarism, writing, etiquette, social hierarchies, the privacy of DMS and text messages.   The story basically. Has all of these elements in it, which makes it so fascinating. And on top of that, it's about writers. And while I have written books, I don't consider myself like a writer writer because my books are not that sort of writing, but from what my writer, friends have said to me, It's not surprising at all that a story like this came out of the writing community, because it is a very insular and kind of gossipy commute can be gossipy.   Not that every writer has gossip and not that all communities are gossipy, but like this particular group of writers and this area of writers in Boston is. Has at least somewhat of a reputation from what I have heard. Anyway, like I said, read the story. It's a fascinating read, but I'm going to go to an insider article that actually has a pretty good recap of it.   Because if I try to go through the actual article, I'm going to like get lost in it. And so here are the basics. It's a feud between two different writers, Dawn Dorland and Sonia Larson. Don darlin altruistically donated a kidney. Now, when you altruistically donate a kidney, it means it's a non-directed donation.   You don't know how it's going to. These are the most rare of donations, and I'm going to go into this a bit later, but suffice to say she donated a kidney to a string. As a living donor and then create a Facebook group to share news and information about her donation. She saw Sonya Larson who she, I guess, interacted at a place called grub street in Boston.   It's like a writers like where you can get educated and shit like that. I'm not entirely certain what the, I couldn't discern what grub street actually was. But Don went to like writing workshops and was familiar and have been to a lot of writing things, but wasn't, hadn't really like published anything yet.   Sonya Larson has published things and his friends, like in a group of friends from this grub street with these other authors and they call themselves the chunky monkeys, which okay. But the, this, this comes to pear to bear. Right. So. Don post. This group invites people to, it tells them this is not made clear in the article, but tells them that they do not have to join or hang out in the group if they don't want to.   She just wants to make sure people who are interested can get information about this and so new joins, but doesn't ever say anything and dog. In one of the first like cringy things in this story messages, Sonia is like, did you know, I donated a kidney because she hadn't responded to any of her messages and they had a bit of an exchange.   And so Don knew now that Sonia was aware of it. Time passes and Dawn finds out that Sonia has written a short story that is getting some attention about a Asian woman who gets a kidney donation from a white woman who is narcissistic and needs attention. And it's very much about a white savior trope.   Is this stuff that with the whole story is about, but that's the character who in previous additions of the story was named Dawn. And the letter that this white woman wrote to the Asian woman was copied from the letter that Don wrote to the final recipient in her kidney chain. Now, when Don found out about this, she sits something to Sonia.   So when you changed some of the wording in the letter, but swore up and down, she wasn't trying, she was just inspired, blah, blah, blah. And it wasn't about Dawn, even though the characters name was Dawn originally. This all turns into a bunch of lawsuits, Sonia files for defamation, Don files back there's like stories get pulled from a big competition and so on and so forth.   And the biggest kind of thing that gets thrown into this is that when Don is in the discovery phase for one of her lawsuits, her lawyers subpoena the DMS and emails of Sonya, and it comes out that there's this group, text of these chunky monkeys, making fun of Dawn for her. Kidney donation and calling her like needy and, and that she's cringy and that they're not friends with her, even though Don assumed she was friends with them.   And there's a lot of like stuff in these DMS to show that indeed Sonya did write the story in part two to rip on Dawn. That, that was part of it. So, and this is ongoing. There is not a resolution for this, but as you can see, there were lots of tweets, examining performative, altruism, bullying, copyright privilege.   People were very divided Celeste, Inc. The author of little fires everywhere. Who's one of the chunky monkeys and was in these group, texts comes on and like goes hard on Twitter to defend Sonya, which sounds freaky. Uh, it just, I don't even know, man, but there's like a lot of people talking about like mean girls and that like, so when you was a mean girl who plagiarized and Dawn was a needy cringy person who doesn't understand social cues.   And I will say that the conversations around this. I have been very much rooted in talking about the donation, the rate, the way that Sonia put racism into the story, the mean girls, the bullying, all of those things. One thing that wasn't really talked about was, um, class Dawn comes from, uh, poverty and Sonja comes from like an upper middle class upbringing.   And. Savvy from savvy writes books who I really enjoy channel. I've talked about her before she had a live stream where she talked about class cues and how, you know, when you don't like some of the things that are considered to be like go shh, or, um, or I don't know, what's the word I'm looking for here?   Like, like that's not how we do things. We don't talk about money this way. We need to humblebrag, not just brag about certain things. That the way that Don was just being earnest about talking about her kidney. Is not classy compared to people who have been from a upper, like an upper class upbringing, which is an actual thing.   I grew up in poverty. I understood exactly what savvy was talking about, even though I'm having trouble articulating it. So go check that out if you're interested in that conversation, because I found it fascinating and I have it linked in the description at the timestamp, because it's quite a bit into the big live stream that she did anyway.   With all of that being said. And like I said, I'm going to keep telling you, like, pause this podcast, go read the article, get a bit of context around it before you come back as a bunch linked in the show notes. But what I wanted to talk about. Was, and this is no surprise to any of you who have been around and know that I have genetic kidney disease and I'm currently cruising into kidney failure and I'm on the transplant list and need a kidney donation.   Right? So you can imagine that. And my sister and I talked about this, she has a transplant from a living donor. And one of the things that really concerned me about the discourse online around this, as well as some of the things that the chunky monkey said, Sonia specifically in the DMS that were published upon the internet, that it really concerned me that it seems like kidney donation became kind of a joke question, mark.   Like, not entirely, but like, like what does she expect us to do? Donate a kidney. I don't know. Maybe you fucking should someone to give you now that I've, contexted the shit out of you with this story. I'm going to, I'm going to give you a more, you know, moment and give you some information about kidney donation.   Not for my own personal sake, but because I want to. Like, whether you think Dawn is cringey, whether you think that she was needy for attention, whatever the case may be. I want you to really understand what she did and the significance of it. So you can maybe give her a little bit more space when it comes to being cringy.   Cause sure. I thought she was cringy too when I read it, but who fucking cares because cringiness is way outweighed by what she did. So here's a little context about kidney donation, the wait list for kidney. For people who need a kidney is usually a brown, a hundred thousand people long at any given time in the United States.   Every day, people die waiting for a transplant and that's from the people who are on the transplant list. This doesn't count people who are on dialysis, who are in kidney failure, who don't qualify for kidney transplant, because maybe they're too sick. Like my great aunt, Ella, who also has PKD and actually got called for a transplant only for them to see at that point, she was just too sick to get the transplant.   And so they took her off the list and she just won't be able to get. She's just too fragile. Right. And then of course, there's that person that like went around the news relatively recently through the university of Colorado, which is where I'm getting on the new transplant list. After moving to Denver who was denied transplant because she refused to get the COVID vaccine and people are like, oh my God, her rights.   It's like, you know, the death camps or whatever. No motherfucker. No, no. If you know anything about transplant, then you know that a, there is a shortage of organs and B it is a very intensive, like surgery requires a lot of manpower. It requires a lot of people and it requires you to be compliant, not just ahead of time before you get the transplant, but for the rest of your life, the life of that organ, you have to be compliant.   If you miss your meds, even once it could go into rejection. And so transplant centers and transplant. Doctors, the teams that manage transplants are extremely cautious about who they put onto a transplant list, because they need to make sure that the organ donation has the highest chance of success.   Because there are so many people in need and there are so many people who will die before they get one because of the shortage of organs. So crony had goddamn river for the woman who didn't get the COVID vaccine and is pissed about knocking her transplant. You have to get every vaccine before you get your transplant because they immunosuppress you.   Like that's part of the fucking. Anybody who was shocked by seeing that story doesn't know enough about transplants, to know that there is nothing out of the ordinary about it. Sorry. That was a rant. Anyway, like I said, there's a shit ton of people who need kidneys. And every day there's more people who need kidneys.   And everyday there are people who die before they get them. There are three types of kidney donation and I'm simplifying this, but there are basically three ways that one might get a kidney in their body. The first and the most common is by, um, a cadaver transplant. So somebody who died. And they're an organ donor and their organs were fit for transplant.   They go to the list and they see the first person on the list who matches the organ. And then they transplant. Now the cadaver organs are the least likely like you, the outcomes are better if you can get a living donor transplant because living donor transplants. I have not had that timeframe in between when somebody dies and when the transplant goes into the body.   So the organ itself has a longer lifespan. Generally speaking, um, like my sister Amy was told with her living donor transplant from her husband that it could last 30 years, at least with my grandma. She got her cadaver transplant when I got pregnant with cat. So 18 years now, and that is considered to be outstanding for a cadaver transplant, like way longer than they potentially thought it would last.   So on top of that with the cadaver transplant, somebody had to die, which it sucks. Right. But like be an organ, even if you're not willing to be a living donor, be an organ donor. If you're able to, because like I said, so many people are writing and this is just kidneys. This doesn't count. At least kidneys, king, kidneys and livers can get living donors, but not everybody can.   So not every kind of like a heart transplant. You can't give someone a heart as a living donor. Right. Anyway, so then there's living donors, people who donate a kidney, cause you can live perfectly fine with one kidney. So you donate your kit, one of your kidneys to your. To usually someone, you know, whether it's a friend, whether it's a family member, whether it's a person, you know, from the internet named Cindy Guentert Baldo, that's joking.   I swear. Maybe not maybe a little bit, not joking, but like there's a saying we have in the kidney transplant in the kidney community of like share your spare. Right. And those that's the majority of living donations or somebody giving a kidney to someone that they know. The smallest amount of donors are the living donors who donate altruistically.   This is also referred to as non directed donation where you are going to donate one of your kidneys, but you don't know who it's going to. You're just donating because you want to donate an organ. That's what Don darlin did. She donated a kidney, which set off a chain of donations where one person got her kidney, that person had a donor who did not match them.   And then that donor chose to donate their kidney to someone else who also had a donor who then did not match them and see what I'm saying. And from what I understand, the letter that Dorland wrote to. The recipient was not actually to the person who got her kidney, but to the person at the end of the chain who got a kidney.   So it's not necessarily like a totally relevant point, but I just thought I would bring that up. So one of the things that massively enraged me about this story, where, where the joke. About how cringey she was. Well, we should just like, should we donate a kidney? And people like giving her shit for talking about it.   Now I would imagine that if you had not heard about this story ahead of time, there was probably a chance you didn't know, you could altruistically donate a kidney because there is, there's so many things surrounding. Kidney donation and living donor donation. Like if you have somebody in your life who is in kidney failure, then you will start to hear about those things.   But it's not something that really crosses the minds of people who aren't impacted by it. And so, yeah, maybe she was cringy. Maybe she was seeking validation for it, but I'll have to say that that is so fucking. This is a quote from a slate article that I will also link in the show notes because it really, I think clarifies how petty and just like fricking awful.   The jokes that these chunky monkeys were making at Dawn's expense really are to me like how much it, it just enrages me that they turned her into a joke. Just listen to this, this quote, what makes the kidney shortage uniquely tragic is that there is technically no shortage of actual kidneys. Most people have two kidneys, but can be perfectly healthy and live a long life with only one.   There are literally millions of spare kidneys in the United States. Given 35 thousand people are added to the waitlist every year, only 0.1, 4% of our country's adult population or one in about every 7,000 people would have to donate a kidney each year to meet the demand. In this light, there is actually a massive kidney surplus and.   So you may ask yourself, okay, well, if there's so many kidneys, like why don't they get more incentives to people to donate blah, blah, blah. Right. There's a lot of complications that come from that. A, there are health implications. It is a surgery. It's a pretty major surgery as a matter of fact. And. While the outcomes are generally really fine.   Like really good. Like my brother-in-law, brother-in-law's doing great with his one kidney. You know, he had to recover from a major surgery, but th his he's doing fine with his one kidney and my sister is doing great with his other kidney. Right. However, he did have to recover from pretty major surgery and go through the pain and the complications of surgery and the potential.   Shittiness that can come with surgery and everything else. On top of that, there's potential financial implications for somebody who is a living donor. Generally speaking, living donors, medical expenses are covered by the recipient. Like if I get somebody to donate to me, their medical expenses will be covered by my insurance.   On top of that, there are. Um, there are organizations that help pay for things like missing work or travel expenses incurred as well as if the donor, if the recipient is able to help cover that with Jesse. And I hope to help cover that for somebody, if they donate for us. However, there is a, there's a very like shaky line.   That is also involved here because where does helping cover costs turn into compensation? And that begins to like dive into like the ethical and moral dilemma surrounding. Adding incentives to people to be living donors, right? Like there have been suggestions. Like if you donate a kidney to somebody, then you should be, you should get like access to Medicare for the rest of your life for free.   Right. If you donate a kidney to somebody and you ever need a kidney, well, and this is true. If you donate a kidney to somebody and you ever need a kidney yourself, you go right to the top of the wait list. But like, they've talked about offering. Incentives to people through the government, but they usually don't go anywhere because there is a.   This ethical dilemma around offering payment for organs, because you can see where that would open a really, really, really dark slippery slope where like people in poverty selling their organs from, have you ever seen repo the genetic opera like that? Right? There is a big, big. Like waiting pool of shittiness that they don't want to go into, which is why you have to both go through psychological testing as a donor to make sure that you are doing it for the right reasons.   And B there cannot be like any compensation going back and forth between donor and recipient because they, it violates ethics on top of that. We can't like force people to give up their organs cause bodily autonomy, my dudes. Right. So. Any program that there might be to encourage living donation is extremely open to exploitation.   And that's really why there isn't anything like that yet. So the biggest way to encourage living donation, the biggest way to both, but people know it's even possibility that altruistic donation as a possibility is to. Talk about it is for living donors. They encourage living donors to talk about it.   They encourage living donors to tell people about it. They encourage living donors to advocate for it, to go in parades, which is something Don did and got made fun of by the chunky monkeys. Like all of these things, these things that are considered cringe or whatever, like no you to humbly brag about it.   No, no, you really don't know. You should tell everybody about it. Don was doing. What living donors are encouraged to do, which is talk about it to hopefully encourage other donors, whether whether altruistic or directed or whatever, like that's the only real way besides kidney patients. Putting their phone numbers on their cars with their blood types is starting Facebook groups to find donors like kidney patients themselves are already looking for kidneys.   Having donors talk about it is the other way to get people interested and potentially considering it. And that's what she did. And they fucking made fun of her for it. So fuck them. That's basically, if you want to know who the bad art friend is, I don't give a shit who the bad art friend is. What I know is that one person.   Donated a kidney and the other one plagiarized her, at least in my read of the situation. And so honestly, all of the rest of the shit doesn't really matter to me. If they had not made jokes about her donating a kidney and how they thought it was, she did it to be needy and blah, blah, blah. They haven't donated a kidney.   Now. I'm not saying you have to, to be a good person. You really don't, it's your body. And it, like I said, it's not an easy or a non-consequential consequential decision to make, but don't fucking make fun of somebody else for that. Think about the person who got that kidney, who could have been one of the people dying on the waiting list.   Like, fuck that shit. Anyway, that's really what I wanted to say. This, all of this talking 20 minutes of talking, just to say, fuck them. I feel gross that I read little fires everywhere. Now, knowing that the author there is fine dragging somebody through the mud, because she has a friend who made fun of somebody who donated a kidney.   Like it bothers me, you guys. And I know I'm feeling a little petty about that, but you can imagine in my position and in the position of anybody. Who is also waiting for a fucking kidney to see an altruistic donor get made fun of, because she's cringy, like, fuck you. Anyway. Now that I've said all of that, do you still want to subscribe to my newsletter?   Because if you do, you'll get the fuckery coloring. At least in the month of November also, you should check out my Patrion because they're the sponsors of this episode. They get to hear these episodes a couple days early, which I don't know, that might matter to you. Maybe that won't matter to you along with other things, they're actually getting a second fuckery flower coloring sheet as a bonus download in November.   Isn't that rad? Anyway, they're my sponsors for this episode. They're amazing. Check about, oh my God. I almost burped. And I'm gonna keep that in on the podcast because why the fuck not I've already. General people I've been the old kidney patients shaking my fist at the clouds kind of a situation today, but yeah, check them all out.   All the links are in the show notes. And until next time my friends be a good art friend and don't make fun of someone for donating a kidney. And until next time, peace out.
