Greetings from Spockgirl Musings, where logic rules, but the frailties of
human nature, genetic inadequacies and hormonal imbalances wreak havoc.

Blacksmith, Ditch Digger, Candlestick Maker?

Dull and dreary, cold and wet, doom and gloom... blah, blah, blah...  What is the meaning of life? This particular question has plagued me for a couple decades now. It is sad when you begin to recollect your life not by moments,  or days, or years....but by decades. It does make one feel terribly old... perhaps even ancient. So today, for a moment I put aside that question and following on the theme of feeling ancient and not knowing what to do with my life, I did another one of those stupid quiz things. I had to laugh...  derisively.

What is your Medieval Profession?

You Are a Playwright

You are a highly literate wordsmith. You love both reading and writing.
You are also a natural storyteller. You can turn a mediocre anecdote into a riveting tale.

You find people and all aspects of life fascinating. No topic is off limits for you.
In modern times, you would make a good filmmaker or novelist.

If you have seriously pondered the meaning of life literally for decades, I, for one, would be very interested in hearing some of the conclusions you've arrived at.

Have a laugh....

You Are a Cartographer
You have a wide range of knowledge and you're very detail oriented.
You have a photographic memory, and you remember places very well.

Like a middle ages cartographer, you're also very adventurous and curious about the world.
In modern times, you would make a good non-fiction writer or scientist.

Seriously... if you saw a couple of the things that I had written when I was a teenager and in my twenties? I look at it now and think "I wrote THAT? That is DEEP!" Of course those were rare occasions. I also seem to have lost an entire decade of critical thinking. Questions are still clear as day... but the conclusions... still dark.

Big Sis:
Intwesting... I would have thought myself to be more of the cartographer type. The first paragraph is surprisingly accurate for you. The second bit... not so much.
