Wednesday Hodgepodge - April 20, 2011



1. What are your plans for Easter Day/weekend?

I have no plans yet. Well, if I do, I don't know about it. This week is my Spring Break (WOOT!) so I'm try to be as productive as humanly possible. I suppose that will continue into the weekend. Sunday morning, we'll go to church and we'll probably have lunch although I'm not sure where. 


2. Besides Jesus, what one person from The Bible would you most like to meet and why?
hmm...there are several. Peter. Moses-I'm really curious about the whole Red Sea episode. Ruth and Esther-I just want to sit down and have a conversation with them. They fascinate me. Right now we're studying David and I honestly think it would be interesting to hear him tell his own story. Daniel-so many stories to hear.


3. What is one modern day convenience you didn't have as a child that was easy to live without?
I would say cell phone but I honestly just think it was easy to live without because 1. I didn't have the massive amount of things going on in my life that I do now (3rd graders with cell phones...unnecessary) 2. it's easy to live without something until you've experienced it's convenience. I think I would go nuts if I had to be without my cell for more than a day...well, let's just say it's better that I have it now.

4. Are you more right brained or left brained? If you don't know what that means there is an interesting little quiz here
I tried to take the quiz...my computer started acting stupid. I am pretty sure I'm about 50/50. I'm a musician and love creativity, but I'm extremely organized and love math and science. I'm strange like that!

5. What is something you intended to do today but didn't? Why?
Well, it's currently 8AM so let's go with yesterday...being Spring Break and all I am trying to be super productive but I didn't make 2 phone calls yesterday that I intended to: 1 to schedule an oil change and 1 to cancel a doctor's appointment. I think I'll do it today.

6. Cadbury Creme Eggs or Reeses peanut butter?
Cadbury Eggs freak me out! I LOVE peanut butter. So yummy!

7. Who was your favorite cartoon character when you were a child?
Oh wow. I LOVE cartoons. Smurfs, Rainbow Brite, Strawberry Shortcake, She-Ra, Looney Toons. I'm not sure I had a favorite. I still like Disney stuff - Mickey, Donald, Goofy.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
Spring Break is going by WAY too fast.

I think math and music go together in the brain. I lack both of those natural abilities : ). Enjoy the rest of your break!

Susan said...

I agree with Joyce. It finally dawned on me when my youngest was taking piano lessons, that music is really a math thing. Hope your spring break has been wonderful!

You're the second person who's said that they are freaked out/squeamish about Cadbury Eggs...and I had never considered that before...I get it but oooo, they are SO yummy! I guess taste won before the "real egg imitation" ever crossed my mind. Huh! Smiles and love to you today!

I'd forgotten all about Rainbow Brite! I've got to go look her up now :-)

"About the music/math thing, www.serendip.brynmawr.edu had this to say:
"It turns out that there is much evidence that supports the positive effects of music on one's ability to do math. Most research shows that when children are trained in music at a young age, they tend to improve in their math skills. The surprising thing in this research is not that music as a whole is enhancing math skills. It is certain aspects of music that are affecting mathematics ability in a big way. Studies done mostly in children of young age show that their academic performance increases after a certain period of music education and training. One particular study published in the journal 'Nature' showed that when groups of first graders were given music instruction that emphasized sequential skill development and musical games involving rhythmn and pitch, after six months, the students scored significantly better in math than students in groups that received traditional music instruction."

I was finally able to take the quiz - Left-Brained=52%, Right-Brained=48%.
