Meet Your Archetype
I came across this interesting website the other day. It’s called ArchetypeMe and it tailors a website to your own personality based on your results to a quiz regarding ten archetypes. You can also share your favorite things with your friends and others. It seems to be a bit like Pinterest that is more focused on your personality. I took the quiz, but decided to forgo the website part. I barely have time as it is to peruse the interwebs, so adding another site to my list is not happening. But it was fun to take the quiz! Here’s my results. Not really that surprising.
A Caregiver is someone who lives to give and needs to be useful.
The Creative woman lives to express herself and is happiest when she’s making something, whether it’s a dress, video, novel, song, dessert or website.
If you’re an Intellectual, you’re always seeking knowledge and wisdom.
Let me know if you take the quiz. What archetypes are you?
Mini me (and mini you)
The Japanese have done it again. Omote 3D Shashin Kan is a pop-up portrait studio in Tokyo that uses a handheld scanner to create a three-dimensional model of your entire body. A 3-D printer then makes a small, intricately detailed plastic figurine. The final, full-color models look exactly like the larger you, down to the wrinkles on the clothes and part in the hair.
If you don’t vote, don’t complain

RIP Sally Ride
It’s a sad day for space travel. Sally Ride, the first American woman to ever travel to space, passed away at the age of 61 after a bout with pancreatic cancer. She’s best known for breaking NASA’s gender barrier by flying on Space Shuttle Challenger on June 18th, 1983, but she spent much more of her time guiding our future in space while here on Earth – she founded NASA’s Office of Exploration and directed its early strategy and later went on to lead the California Space Institute. Her final decade saw her establish Sally Ride Science to encourage students wanting to follow in her footsteps, especially girls.
