"Verbal-linguistic intelligence has to do with words, spoken or written. People with verbal-linguistic intelligence display a facility with words and languages. They are typically good at reading, writing, telling stories and memorizing words and dates. They tend to learn best by reading, taking notes, listening to lectures, and via discussion and debate. They are also frequently skilled at explaining, teaching and oration or persuasive speaking. Those with verbal-linguistic intelligence learn foreign languages very easily as they have high verbal memory and recall, and an ability to understand and manipulate syntax and structure.

Careers which suit those with this intelligence include writers, lawyers, philosophers, journalists, politicians and teachers." (Wikipedia)

Non-conformist, Visionary, and Independent

13 Abstract, -12 Islamic, -9 Ukiyo-e, 3 Cubist, -15 Impressionist and -17 Renaissance!

Abstract art uses a visual language of form, color and line to create a composition which exists independently of what may appear to others as visual realities. Western had been underpinned by the logic of perspective and an attempt to reproduce an illusion of visible reality. It allowed the progressive thinking artists to show a different side to the world around them. By the end of the 19th century many artists felt a need to create a 'new kind of art' which would encompass the fundamental changes taking place in technology, science and philosophy. Abstract artists created art that was diverse and reflected the social and intellectual turmoil in all areas of Western culture.

People that chose abstract art as their preferred artform tend to be visionsaries. They see things in the world around them and in people that others may miss because they look beyond what is visual only with the eye. They rely on their inner thoughts and feelings in dealing with the world around them instead of on what they are told they should think and feel. They feel freed from the tendancy to be bound by traditional thought and experiences. They look more toward their own ideas and experiences than what they are told by their religious upbringing or from scientific evidence. They tend to like to prove theories themselves instead of relying on the insight or ideas of others. They are not bound by common and mundane, but like to travel and have new experiences. They value intelligence, but they also enjoy a challenge. They can be rather argumentative when they are being forced or feel as if they are being forced to conform.

Don't panic, I'm fine!

Thought I'd better let people know that my neck is fine. Thanks for the concerned replies. I went to the doctor after taking my car in for its WOF. Sat for an hour and a half before being seen, but hey. Nothing damaged, just something akin to whiplash, wore a soft neck brace for half a day before I got pissed off with it and took it off. Went to work again on Tuesday, feeling absolutely honky dory again now. I AM following doctor's orders though and NOT going snowboarding this weekend. Waiting until next weekend. Which means I'm a little at a loose end. *sigh*

Maybe that means I'll get more of my NaNo novel done, since I haven't really written that much more on it since last weekend.

I hate school. It eats the rest of my life. That and procrastination. I'm just not in a writing mood, I guess, more of a reading mood. I'd rather curl up with a good book than sit writing for ages. Meh. I'll MAKE myself. I'm writing now... if I just channel THIS energy into my novel I should be fine.

NaNo, wintersports, work and Halloween

Yep, past time for another update. It's November, so I'm participating in the madness that is NaNoWriMo again. I'm up to 5,000 words, which is way worse than last year (I was up to 12,000 words by this time last year - mainly because I had Damelza over and we were racing each other). But still do-able. I'm writing the sequel to last year's NaNo novel.

I've taken up with snowboarding, but I still have my skis and like skiing. Especially after I've injured myself snowboarding and need to do something I'm better at and don't fall over doing. Like right now... I was doing some of the jumps at Snow Planet on my board, got a bit cocky and one jump ended up going very wrong. I won't go into details, except that I landed very hard on my ass / back. I thought I was fine, but I woke up with a splitting headache at 4am today and when I tried getting out of bed I couldn't move my neck. So I've called in sick (or injured, as the case may be) and will be taking it easy today. Still can't move my neck, swallow or yawn without lots of pain. Found out in the shower that tilting my head back is absolutely out of the question. Heading out soon to get some anti-inflammatory tablets and possibly some painkillers, too. Maybe some Voltaren cream to rub in.

Work sucks. I wish the year would just end so I can leave and never look back. I'm looking at doing something completely different. Don't know what yet, but it may involve photography or proofreading, and may even involve working in retail. I don't give a fig so long as it isn't teaching. I don't mind doing relief teaching, and will probably keep that on the cards as it earns pretty well, but it'll be a long time (if ever) that I go back into a classroom full time. I've found out that I'm just not cut out for it. *shrug*

Duncan and I have our Halloween AGM / dance night tonight, and we've found all our Halloween decorations (we didn't put them up this year as we have learned that we NEVER get trick-or-treaters down where we live) and I'll be taking them with me tonight to set up our theme. I didn't get to dress up on Friday as our Halloween Disco at school was cancelled. I had lined up with a friend to go out on the town, but by the time I got home from work I was so shattered I couldn't face going clubbing. So tonight is my Halloween dress up night. I'm going as a black cat.

And I think that's all for now, folks!
