Took an online test about personality characteristics and these were my top five.
Character Strength # 1
Love of learning
You love learning new things, whether in a class or on your own. You have always loved school, reading, and museums-anywhere and everywhere there is an opportunity to learn.
Character Strength # 2
Thinking of new ways to do things is a crucial part of who you are. You are never content with doing something the conventional way if a better way is possible.
Character Strength # 3
You like to laugh and tease. Bringing smiles to other people is important to you. You try to see the light side of all situations.
Character Strength # 4
You are an honest person, not only by speaking the truth but by living your life in a genuine and authentic way. You are down to earth and without pretense; you are a “real” person.
Character Strength # 5
You have strong and coherent beliefs about the higher purpose and meaning of the universe. You know where you fit in the larger scheme. Your beliefs shape your actions and are a source of comfort to you.
Surprising nobody who knows me, forgiveness, self regulation and perseverance were my weakest three characteristics.
Oh god what have I done!?

And sometimes in book clubs.” And then I realized, having covered politics for many years: Congress, too. “It’s not adolescence that’s the problem,” insists Faris. “It’s the giant box of strangers.” —

Father of the bride (by shanamorena)
Really you guys, that veil. I love that veil.
(Also, the moon was to represent the bride’s father. People took photos with it throughout the reception. How cool is that?)
