Mirriam from Thoughts of a Shieldmaiden posted some anonymous questions on her blog, and said that any one else who wanted to answer them could as well! I thought that it would be a good way for y’all to get to know me better, so here are my answers…
♦ Five ways to win your heart? Love God, buy me books, be a gentleman, love me no matter what, be funny.
♦ Something you feel strongly about? Abuse, bullying and suicide.
♦ A book you love? Just one?!?!? Impossible… I shall give you a short list of books that I could not live without. The Inheritance Cycle By Christopher Paolini, The Ranger’s Apprentice By John Flanagan, Stowaway By Karen Hesse, And of course anything written by J.R.R. Tolkien!
♦ Pet Peeves? When we are playing scrabble and someone bumps the board (It drives me CRAZY when the pieces are out of line), When someone borrows my DVDs and then leaves them lying around without their cases.
♦ How comfortable are you in your own skin? Below average probably. I am very big boned and sturdily built, but I have always been on the chunky side, which has never been pleasant.
♦ Something you always think ‘what if’ about? Whenever I go somewhere, or someone I love does, I always have the “What if this is the last time I see them?” thought.
♦ Five things you really want? A laptop, some fashionable clothes that actually look good on someone of my build, school to be over, a job.
♦ A quote you try to live by?
♦ Five guys you find attractive? Oooohhhh there are alot of them… 😀 Hmmm… Robert Downy Jr., Ben Barnes, Chris Hemsworth, the singer for Nickleback (don’t know his name), I know this may sound a little bit weird, and even nerdy-ish, but I find Aragorn to be exceptionally attractive…… O.o
♦ Five women you think are beautiful? Natalie Portman (Padme from Star Wars and Jane from Thor) Emma Watson, Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow from Avengers) Cate Blanchett (Galadriel from LOTR) and Vanessa Hudgens (Lindy from Beastly)
♦ Something you’re currently worrying about? Christmas money, and Finals for school are coming up fast (I am always a little worried about finals).
♦ What do you hope your future will be like? I would like to get a part time job as a nurse (which is what I am going to school for), which should pay enough to support my writing. I would also like to fall in love and get married to a nice guy. I also want to travel the world before I settle down and have kids.
♦ Five weird things that you like? Picture hoarding (I collect every interesting picture I see on the internet, which is why Pintrest and DeviantART are very bad ideas for me), collecting quotes & poems, book hoarding (I am seriously only a couple of books away from being on an episode of Hoarders), I love cooking but abhor baking, I am fascinated with medieval ships of any kind and sailing.
♦ Something that you’re proud of? Personally, I am proud of the fact that I finally worked up the courage to go to college after being homeschooled my whole life.
♦ A problem that you’ve had? Forgetfulness. It is weird though, because I used to have the best memory of all of my family, but since I started going to school, my memory has rapidly declined, and now I forget stuff all the time… If I have to remember to bring something to school, I had better write it down or I WILL forget it.
♦ Something that you miss? My best friend, Becca Anne, who lives in Washington and I don’t get to see her very often.
♦ One thing you’re excited for? The Hobbit, Iron Man 3, and Christmas Break (which is a month long)!!!!
♦ Something that bullets your whole day? Someone saying they’re disappointed in me or getting angry at me. (sorry Mirriam, I had to steal your answer here, because it is true for me too 😀 )
♦ Put your iPod on shuffle and name the first ten songs that play? Runaway by 3 Doors Down, I’ve got a Dream from the Tangled Soundtrack, Dance of the Darkness by Blackmore’s Night, Let it Burn by Red, The Mists of Islay by Hayley Westenra, Missing by Evanescence, Beautiful Bride by Flyleaf, It’s War by MBLAQ, Lost November by DIAURA
♦ Things you like and dislike about yourself? I dislike my size, my big hands, my square smile, the fact that I am short and stocky, and my shyness. Things I like: my eyes (which have good shape and are a dark, stormy grey blue), my smirk (which I use more than my smile, because I don’t like my smile), my strength (I suppose being built like and ox has it’s advantages… )
♦ What are you wearing? A brown Tee-shirt with a black velvet cross on it, my black and grey zip up jacket, a pair of comfy blue jeans, socks, blue and black Vanns skate shoes. Oh, and underwear 😀 .
♦ What do you think of school? School is ok, it is all the homework that I HATE. I like literature and history much more than math and science, which is unfortunate because my next year and a half is full of math and science… D:
♦ What makes you happy? When people complement me, or do nice things for me. When people want to be friends with me simply because they enjoy my company.
♦ What makes you angry? When people are ungrateful when I do something for them, or when I am reading and people assume that because I am reading I am not doing anything, and therefor can be interrupted over and over again.
And now I had better start my homework, or I will be in trouble because I procrastinated…….. again…….
