ASTROLOGICAL SIGN: Gemini
CHINESE ZODIAC: Rat
DO YOUR SIGNS SUIT YOU?: My astrological sign definitely suits me. I took these from an astrology site, and I bolded the ones that fit me: adaptable, versatile, intellectual, communicative, spontaneous, eloquent, youthful, lively, talkative, amusing, witty and logical, changeable, restless, inquisitive, inconsistent, superficial, cunning, nervous, tense and something of a gossip. Not only that, but the idea of being under the twins just fits. I'm incredibly eclectic, especially when it comes to music.
LIKES: Music is my biggest obsession. Tattoooooos... I have four at the moment. I also like movies, books, computer graphics (I'm an icon maker), travelling, and going to concerts. I cook, bake, organize (I have mild OCD), and bitch about my customers. I love writing. There's a lot more that I like, that's just what comes to mind.
DISLIKES: Ignorance, bigotry, hypocrisy, things that don't work properly, most of the customers who come through my store.
STRONG POINTS: Passion, dedication, empathy. Passion and dedication for similar reasons, because when I'm for something, I go all out. Empathy because I just hate seeing people I care about hurting.
WEAK POINTS: I am so easily addicted it's not even funny. Seriously. I also have something of a quick temper, which is courtesy of my father, but is also tied in with my passion. Piss me off, and you'll regret it.
HOBBIES: Making graphics, writing, cooking, listening to music, going to shows, travelling... Y'know, the fun stuff.
SKILLS: Writing, graphic design, cooking, ability to pick up languages. Can also easily alphabetize things. My sister refers to me as a walking dictionary.
DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONALITY IN SIX WORDS: Out-of-place (it's one word, shut up, and I can explain if anyone wishes me to), dedicated, honest, thoughtful, trustworthy, friendly.
WHAT MOST PEOPLE LIKE ABOUT YOU: I don't know, to be honest. I've been told by others that I'm too nice for my own good, but whatever. I guess people like that I tend to put others before myself.
YOUR FAVORITE MEMORY, AND WHY: Oh, god. I so totally know what this is, and I'm just copying it from my journal, because that's the best way for me to describe what happened. This happened on 9/22/05. I went to see one of my favorite bands on the face of the planet, Greenwheel, and I have a huge crush on the singer. The show was at a very small club in Chicago called Double Door, so I had brought them brownies that night, and there is a reason for me saying this :) This is what happened:
At one point during Dim Halo, Ryan leaned down and hugged me while he was singing and then he didn't let go for a few seconds. That's the song that got me into Greenwheel in the first place, and it's all Ari's fault, because she sent me a mix with Dim Halo, Breathe, and Sustain You on it. Ryan had been joking about how they wanted to get a big sign that says "Greenwheel likes shots" (meaning that people should buy them shots), so when he said it for like the millionth time, I called out that I already bought him one. So he walked over, grabbed my hand, and said TO THE ENTIRE HOUSE, that "she brought us brownies, but not special brownies because she's straightedged, but they're still homemade brownies and I'm going to go eat the fuck out of them later." I think I was about a million shades of red.
I want to be able to view it again because he made me feel so incredibly special by doing that, even though it was a bit embarassing. I don't always feel that way, and the fact that it was him doing it, someone I've admired for years, just made my night. As I was going home that night, I called my ex-girlfriend and left her this really long babbling voice mail. *facepalms* She told me the next day that "it was the cutest voice mail ever".
FAVORITE HOLIDAY, AND WHY: Halloween. I volunteer at a haunted trail near my house on Halloween, and I fucking love it. I love being encouraged to scare people.
DO YOU ACT ON IMPULSE OR THINK THINGS THROUGH?: It depends on what it is. I hate hate hate hate impulse shopping, because I always end up with things I don't really need and didn't buy what I went in there to get. Sometimes I act on impulse, though, I know I do. I did something I'm not really proud of, but don't regret, back in October, something that could have gotten me killed, but while I was doing it, I didn't really care. Other things... My tattoos, I've thought over, a LOT.
YOUR FAVORITE QUOTE: From the show?
Maria: You kidnap me and blow up my car and you expect me to spend the night with you in here?
Michael: Not exactly my fantasy evening either.
Not from the show?

FAVORITE CHARACTER[S], AND WHY?: Michael and Maria, definitely. I love their sarcasm and their tendency to just be total smartasses about everything and anything, when you can see in their eyes what they really feel. I can relate to that.
LEAST FAVORITE CHARACTER[S], AND WHY?: Tess, I guess. I don't like people who manipulate.
IF YOU COULD HAVE ANY PARANORMAL ABILITIES, WHAT WOULD THEY BE, AND WHY?: Telepathy and telekinesis, but only if I could control them. I'd choose those ones because I think it would be interesting to not only be able to see what people are thinking, but to make things move on their own. Hell yeah, I'd like that. Maybe pyrokinesis, too.
This is me and the guy that my favorite memory concerns, just at a different show. I ♥ him.
Me and my best friend. *hugs him tight*
