Careers in this field often demand that you have a strong desire to improve the lives of others. Most likely, you have strong interpersonal skills, and enjoy working with people. It may also be important to you to work in a profession where you can be certain you're making a difference.
this is what I am doing right now!!!

Cute and Casual
When it comes to fashion, you're neither master nor slave. You love cute clothes (after all, you are a girl) but refuse to make it your life's work. That said, you do have your favorites — including a splurge or two. But it's okay; we won't let your secret out.
When you're out shopping with friends, you tend to be one of the more practical of the group. In fact, we'd guess you're rarely one to sacrifice comfort for fashion. Which is not to say you haven't been swept away by something fabulously impractical. But, be honest, when was the last time it made an appearance? So keep at it with your laid-back style that says to the world, "Here I am, no muss no fuss."
I do agree but not too cute though... I'd like it personal too.... I just checked the other style types too and then this one is the most right one!!!
Take the test.
You're Costa Rica!
You're about as peaceful as anyone on the planet, a real dyed-in-the-wool

"The atmosphere of this film, simple and complicated at the same time, is filled with a gloomy atmosphere. The whole story acquires different dimensions depending on which angle is taken. It could unfold as to how one sees a pestilent parrot; it might be interesting to watch all the events through the eyes of the guard of a passing train, or to make use of an original view through a half-empty glass in the local café. Where Is Madame Catherine? is the second film by Marc Recha to be included in the competition, this time the Another View section in Cannes. Each of his films represents a different view of Spanish film, which does exist indeed, but scarcely ever appears in European cinemas." From the FEBIO Fest 2004.
From the Gothenburgh Film Festival, a Swedish summary.
I have just a few things to say about this movie.... boring, meaningles, yawn, what's the point. It did sound really interesting and funny but I got so disappointed. The review at Craig's Toronto FilmFest News and Reviews sums it up quite well. I don't recommend this one!!!!

"A southern Baptist minister was completing a temperance sermon.
With great emphasis he said, 'If I had all the beer in the world, I'd take it and pour it into the river. 'With even greater emphasis he said, ' And if I had all the wine in the world, I'd take it and pour it into the river.' And then finally, shaking his fist in the air, he said, 'And if I had all the whiskey in the world, I'd take it and pour it into the river.'
Sermon complete, he then sat down. The song leader stood very cautiously and announced with a smile, 'For our closing song, let us sing Hymn #365, Shall We Gather at the River.'"
Tre Solar (Three Suns) by Richard Hobert
This was a world premiere!
"Richard Hobert has made a medieval refugee drama full of marrow, set in Österlen, Sweden. This story seems to have taken inspiration from the Icelandic Sagas. Hanna (Lena Endre) rides towards the coast to meet her husband, the crusader (Mikael Persbrandt) who has been away fighting during many years. Half way there she meets destruction and death in the footsteps of the plague.
Someone who has suffered a heavy loss is Joel the Fisherman (Kjell Bergkvist), his whole family have died. They becomes companions and meets among others the abandoned Emma (Maria Bonnevie). Together they make up a energetic duo who has to fight for their children and their lives. 'Tre Solar' is a medieval lovestory with resonance in the 21st century. (Written by Jannike Åhlund - translated from the Filmfestival Webpage, in Swedish)
This movie was not as I had expected it, being a medieval nerd I had expected a more straight forward medieval costume drama, still it went right into my heart! A strong woman is pictured, Hanna, who will do anything to save her beloved ones. The refugee theme is very strong and you'll find all sorts of strange things people will do in order to save themselves. I strongly recommend this movie!!! I hope it will be shown internationally!!
I intend to write something about the rest of the movies soon....
