Describe your "You-Topia"
You-Topia being either:

A day surrounded by people exactly like you

OR

A day surrounded by people who make you feel good, unstressed, etc.


My You-Topia would be surrounded by a group of librarians. You know, the kind that are helpful, non-bossy, and have a love of books and information. Somehow I feel unstressed in the library

1. My you-topia
Is a day surrounded by no people whatsoever. Just Nature and some animals. I work retail - I'm around people quite enough, thank you.

3. A day surrounded by people exactly like me...
...would drive me straight out of my skull.

Imagine a whole group of chaotically disorganized, chronically late, procrastinating women letting the dishes pile up in the sink and the mail stack up on the floor, while fighting over the computer keyboard and randomly destroying electronic equipment by their mere proximity! Nah, I think one is about all I can stand.... ;)

7. Well, I'm creative under pressure...
...so in a roomful of people exactly like me, we could come up with some amazing book ideas and entrepeneurial concepts, if we had a sufficiently motivating deadline.

Meanwhile, the dishes pile up in the sink, and none of us would care. More important things to think about, after all.... :)

5. My "me-topia"
Would either be me, lost on a nature trail somewhere in the woods with nobody around.

Or...

Diving and snorkeling around the reefs at Chinaman's hat in Hawaii.

6. That's easy.
A day on a Tahitian beach under a palm tree with topless brown women bringing me drinks with little umbrellas in them.

8. I recently experienced it!
Played in a Big Band with 17 SUPER GUYS! Had an opportunity to display my very unusual skills, feel a deep appreciation for them and be paid well. NO ONE was threatening my back. One of the sax players said, "Karenina, it is not lost on anyone in this band that NONE OF US could do what you just did. FIRST. TIME. EVER. for that level of acknowledgement and acceptance.

15 foot swells, sun, 35 knot winds, tempature at about 45 degrees and a good cd of fiddle music with a cup of tea.

10. my sisters, our daughters and me.in a nice relaxing place with
good food, books to read, a spa, a beach, good snorkeling, and enough time to really lay back and enjoy it. The last three years our time together has been stressful as we watched our mother deteriorate.

option 2:

my husband, our daughter and me in a similar tropical paradise for about 10 days. <<<<sigh>>>>>
