    I'm A Planner

    I envy those who embrace spontaneity....who can just go with the flow no matter where it takes them. I'm quite the opposite. I'm a planner. I find comfort and security in routines and structure. I need to plan things, even simple things like going to the grocery store or over...

    I`m Not So Spontaneous

    I really wish to be more spontaneous. When I get some present I`m really happy but I don`t know how to express it. Other persons are laughing, screaming, dancing and so. I make only a smile and say "thanx" and that`s it.  Then my friends or family don`t know...

    I Try the Whole Surprise Thing...

    I try the whole surprise thing. I always snap. Jess seems to know when I'm hiding something. One of these times I'll be able to keep something from her until she's supposed to find out. Yeah right who am I kidding? It's way too easy to read me.

    I'm Giving It A Go

    When it comes to little mini-adventures I am a very spontaneous person. I can easily just make plans at last minute and I like not knowing what the day's going to bring when you just decide to make a left or right on a road and see where it takes you. I'm good at that kind of...

    But I think too much about things and like to plan. When spontaneous things happen, though, they usually make me happy :)

    How about some advanced notice, please?

    minimum:  3 days notice! anything shy of 3 days is inadequate notice.  i didn't used to be this way.  when i was young i was up for anything.  as i've gotten older i've become much more conservative and mild mannered.  i'm not uncomfortable in social...

    I Lost Most of My Spontaneity....

    I lost most of my spontaneity.  I don't much like it neither.  I really don't like a whole lot of things right now.  I know, I know.  Time to change things.

    I Am Made To Be Spontaneous

    But I was surpassed by teachers, parents, and made to jump many stupid hoops, and at the end I got nothing in life. I need to be more experimental, more spontaneous. I have the ability and tendency to, but I need to remove the inhabitator that others people forced into me...

    I am spontaneous at times but most of the time I prefer to be prepared and have a plan laid out.  I do have fun though sometimes when I 'm with a group of friends and we have no day planned.  Just kinda play it by ear.  I don't like some things spontaneous though...

    Oh to be able to wake up and know you're about to do something you've never done before. I wish I could just wake up, and not plan anything, and just go out and do something wonderful!
