Your Weakness: procrastination (and I’m fallin’ vicitim to it RIGHT now)
Your Fears: not being any good at what I want to do in life
Your Perfect Pizza: TONS and TONS of cheese on a greasy pepperoni and mushroom hand-tossed pizza!! YUM! Now I’m hungry again!
Goal You Would Like To Achieve This Year: Saving up enough money to get my own place
Your Most Overused Phrase on instant messenger: “lol” and “HA”…but then of course there are all the smilies that I OVERuse
Thoughts When First Waking Up: “what do I have to get up for again?” If it’s work…….if it’s taking my cousins home at 6AM… roll outta bed while thinking, “I’ve really gotta get my own place!”
Your Best Physical Feature: my brain…sorry, it’s physical, just on the inside! ;)
Your Bedtime: well I’ve gotten better lately and when homework isn’t due, I try to get myself in bed during the week at about 11 PM and then watch a recorded Oprah or another show till midnight. But if I’m not being disciplined, it is about 12 or 12:30 AM.
Your Most Missed Memory: Living in Abilene: having all my favorite people within minutes; GATA stuff; INTRAMURALS; visiting Chucky T; living in my own place; etc.
Pepsi or Coke: neither
McDonalds or Burger King: McDonalds
Favorite Video Game? I prefer the computer

Chocolate or Vanilla: Chocolate
Cappuccino or Coffee: neither
Do you Smoke: No
Do you Swear: not really anymore
Do you Sing: LOVE to! Didn’t say I’m good, but LOVE to sing, especially in the car!
Do you Shower Daily: yeppers, and with my new “routine” that I’ve fallen into, those normally come sometime around 9 or 10 PM at night (weekdays)
Have you Been in Love: I’m in love everyday!
Do you want to go to college: NO MORE, PLEASE!!! But yes, I’d love to go back and get a doctorate someday, but the key words being “go back” so I need a break sometime first!
Do you want to get married: yeppersDo you believe in yourself: always!
Do you get Motion Sickness: uhh…I don’t think so. I don’t riding those rides at Six Flags and places though that spin you around and around or you have to ride in them going backwards, so maybe that’s a yes?! I don’t know
Do you have a dream car: Well, I think “dream cars” are kinda dumb, because I’d never spend that much money, even if I had it, on a car. I mean I’ve always thought the Lamborgini’s rocked, but would never buy one. I think my “dream car” would be a Lexus RX. I really like those for an SUV. Not TOO big, but kinda sporty lookin’.
Do you think you are Attractive: well it totally depends on what aspect are we talkin’ about here. Attractive can be in reference to physically or mentally or personality. I don’t think I’m what society addresses as “attractive physically”, but that doesn’t bother me. I value intellect and personality in people, so I do my best to be “attractive” in those areas. Whether I am or not, that is up to opinion.
Are you a Health Freak: noppers, but have definitely become more aware of what I eat over the past year. I’m gettin’ older and my body is slowly showing me that.
Do you get along with your Parents: I suppose. We talk minimally, so how can I not! ;)
Do you like Thunderstorms: yeah, they are pretty
Do you play an Instrument: no, but that would be cool

In the past month have you drank alcohol: yes, but it has been VERY limited
In the past month have you Smoked: noppers
In the past month have you been on Drugs: noppers
In the past month have you gone on a Date: noppers
In the past month have you gone to a Mall: yeah, unfortunately. Not really my thing: too expensive, crowded and overrated
In the past month have you eaten a box of Oreos: no….I don’t even think I’ve eaten one oreo in the past month, much less the entire box (and isn’t it a “bag” anyways?!)
In the past month have you eaten sushi: no, but I’ve always wanted to try it, but I know you have to be careful with it and make sure you get the “good” stuff in order not to get sick, and since I’m not really into the idea of spending a lot of money, I don’t know WHEN I’ll try it…HA!
In the past month have you been on stage: Uhh…I don’t think so.
In the past month have you been dumped: nah….it’s nice, huh!? ;)
In the past month have you gone skinny dipping: noppers…isn’t it a little cold outside?!?! But we do have a pool, so when the whether gets nicer….LOL…
In the past month have you stolen anything: I don’t think so…I don’t recall it if I did…HA!

Piercings: noppers
Tatoos: no
Ever been drunk: no (however, SOMEONE whose name I won’t say so they don’t get incriminated for drinking with me, likes to think so, but I think I would know!)
Ever been called a tease: not that I’m aware of
Ever been beaten up: no, but I was slapped in the face by a guy from my church back in STL once….HA!
Ever shoplifted: yeah, once when I was younger, like elementary age or junior high
How do you want to die: suddenly and not expecting it…if I’m feeling selfish, but “predicted/expected” if I’m thinking about my loved ones. The situation is somewhat different for the loved ones who are left behind to handle a death if it is “expected” like from a terminal illness because they “know” death is coming and can do their best to avoid “regrets”, but when it happens unexpected the regrets can be deadly in them selves. I won’t say one way is “easier” than another, because there is nothing easy about losing someone you love, but when considering the after effects, such as regrets, “expecting” a death can help to limit the number of regrets. And you know what? If we all just “lived like you were dying” as Tim McGraw’s song says, we wouldn’t have to worry about regrets either way.
What do you want to be when you grow up: a therapist (for a while) then switch and go into teaching (hopefully at the college level)
What country would you most like to Visit: Australia
What color pants do you have right now? Dark blue jeans
What song are you listening to right now? No music (believe it or not)
What is the last thing that you said? “bye” on the phone with Makiyo
What is right next to you? My homework piled up on one side and my laptop on the other side.
What is your computer desk made of? Uhhh…a hard plastic I think
What are the last 4 digits in your phone number? 1115
If you were a crayon, what color would you be? blue
When is your birthday? December 10, 1981
Who do you want to spend the rest of your life with? A best friend, but haven’t found him yet (or at least don’t know that he’ll become that “best friend”)
How many buddies do you have on your buddy list? 141
How's the weather right now? Deary lookin’ and cooler
What did you do last night? Was a TOTAL bum and didn’t do homework like I should have. I played on the computer and watched some of my past Oprah’s and Fear Factors and House and American Idol episodes that I needed to catch up on.
Last person that you talked to on the phone? Makiyo
What makes you happy? Making others laugh and happy; seeing people I love; hearing from people I love (whether it be on the phone or on AIM or in an email); knowing people read what I blog about; eating some dang good food; watching one of my favorite shows on tv; etc.

Favorite drink? Water or lemonade, but I love juices too
Favorite quote: not sure…too many. But I do have one I wrote myself back on Jan. 17, 2000, that I have carried in the front picture slot in my wallet ever since and it says, “Anyone can make others laugh at someone else’s expense, but those who can make you laugh without hurting anyone truly possess the gift of humor.” I like that one I have to say!
What are some things you will never do? Gosh, I don’t know if it is possible to answer this question because how can one predict the future?! I mean there are some things I’d like to be able to say I’ll never do, but honestly, we don’t know. I would hope I would never kill, intentionally discriminate, stop loving, stop laughing, hate, puke on myself in public, abuse another human being, marry too soon, etc.
If you were forced to put out an ad in the paper looking for a spouse, containing your criteria for the "one", what would it say? SWF looking for a man! ;) A guy that knows who he is, but is still fervently searching out what’s right in this world. A guy who can say he shares the same purpose in life as me: “The 4 L’s: Learn, Labor, Laugh, and Love.” A guy who is willing to treat a woman as an equal and share the respect she will give to him with her.

Let a friend cry on your shoulder: yeppers…sometimes I’m not the best with words in those situations, but I’ll gladly listen and let you cry…
