Who Am I Meant to Be?
By Anne Dranitsaris, PhD
Forget your career. Forget your role as a mother or a wife. Forget how much money you make or how successful you are. If you’re struggling with the question “Who am I meant to be?”, this quiz can help you figure out what really defines you. Based on personality science, I have identified seven “striving styles,” modes of thought and behavior that direct us to seek satisfaction in different ways. Although everybody is wired with all seven styles, most people have one that dominates. When you engage this innate style, you’ve got the best shot at fulfilling your potential; when you don’t, you can feel stuck.
I was literally bullied by my my drunken bosses about being gay and then they told me I still had to perform. I was crying up on stage with my back turned to the audience, but when the music started I had to put on my game face. Afterwards I just told them off….assholes from Sound Shop! I was a fetus here and had never sung with a band,,,
Well, it’s been a long time between posts, but I went into a deep depression after losing one of my 3 cats, Coco, to cancer not long ago. For the last 3 months I have been taking care of her, giving her pain medicine, making sure she ate as much as possible, and getting some type of exercise. It was such a long, drawn out experience and so hard to watch her disintegrate before my eyes until she was just a walking skeleton with tumors of varying sizes covering her body. I must say she was a trooper and held on till the last minute – eating, drinking, and going to the bathroom on her own. But one could tell the pain was over powering her and that she was basically hanging on mainly for her owners’ sake. That has been known to happen,
* Thank God for the iPhone on a long trip flying Southwest sitting next to a girl with stinky feet. Had a window seat. Girl sitting next to me sat in the Lotus position (yes, she was that tiny) with her shoes off….pew!!!), but I was able to listen to music off my iPhone and take myself into another world by listening to Bette Midler music and of course other people’s music…however I do think her feet were the catalyst for the migraine to come later.
* Checked into the Standard Hollywood that Fabulis booked for me for the Burlesque premiere. I was a day early and was staying a few days later since my mom was in town visiting the head of Screen Gems, Clint Culpepper, and his family. He runs Screen Gems and is responsible for greenlighting Burlesque. So, I’m lucky….what can I say. I will be going to the premiere with his mother, my mother, his brother, Tandy, and my date…which is my cousin John Wright (a make-up artist to the stars)….so it’s a family affair. Poor Barry couldn’t make it. Anyway, I had to dick around at the desk to make changes to the room arrangements. But the hotel and Fabulis were excellent about it.
Mister D: My brother, Barry, and I have been invited to this premiere and the after party which happens Monday night. Please wish us luck, since this will be our first. We are notoriously bad about taking photos…usually because we never remember cameras, but hopefully we’ll remember our cell phones have cameras built into them. This was sort of a last minute thing for us, so don’t judge us by the clothes we may wear…I mean, we will wear clothes…I just don’t know what!
