Who Am I Meant to Be?
Read the wording of the questions carefully. What follows is the introduction & below is the link. See what you think. Who are you meant to be?
(Some links don't last forever. If you find this of interest don't wait too long. The link could disappear.) Yes men, you can also take it. By the way - I got artist.
"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."
"After responding to the statements below, you will discover your striving style, learn what to do if it's backfiring from neglect, and find ideas to guide your life in the direction that it was meant to go."

Oatmeal Toasting & Sandwich Bread
1 cup rolled oats (old-fashioned oats)
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3 tablespoons brown sugar or honey
2 teaspoons instant yeast OR 1 packet active dry yeast*
1 1/4 cups lukewarm milk
3/4 cup raisins or currants (optional)
*If you use active dry yeast, dissolve it in the warm milk before combining with the remaining ingredients.
Shaping: Transfer the dough to a lightly oiled surface, and shape it into a log. Place the log in a lightly greased 9" x 5" loaf pan, cover the pan (with an acrylic proof cover, or with lightly greased plastic wrap), and allow the dough to rise for 60 to 90 minutes, till it's crested 1" to 2" over the rim of the pan.
