As I was struggling to come up with a new idea for a post, I thought, wouldn't it be fun to do another survey? Floating around YouTube these days is the "About Me" tag, so I decided to post my answers right here on my blog.
1. Do you have a middle name?
I do indeed. My middle name is Meira. Just about no one is able to pronounce it when I tell them.
2. What is your Favorite subject in school?
Currently my favorite subjects are Intro to Communication and Culture and an English literature class focused solely on William Faulkner. All my friends think I'm insane because they can't stand Faulkner.
3. Whats your Favorite drink?
4. What is your Favorite song at the moment?
Well this isn't a new song, but my favorite at the moment is "Melody" by Kate Earl. It was free on iTunes in the summer and I quite like it.
5. What would you name your kids?
I really don't know. I used to think about this much more carefully when I was younger, ironically enough. I can't even remember the names I used to think of but they were the weirdest names. Truly. I obsessed over my family's name dictionary as a child, picking out the strangest sounding ones, but I don't recall the names now.
6. Do you participate in any sports?
This one gives me a giggle. I've got absolutely no hand-eye coordination and I'm rubbish at sports. In P.E. in middle school and high school I just ran around pretending I knew what I was doing and letting everyone else play. I really appreciated that we got to choose P.E. junior and senior year, so I took dance. I danced when I was young, and I consider that a sport, but otherwise I much prefer exercise on my own to any kind of team sports. Well, that was a long answer to a yes/no question.
7. Favorite Book?
The Harry Potter series are some of my favorite books, especially the seventh but I do love them all. I also love anything by Neil Gaiman. I wish I had more time to read for pleasure, but these days homework gets in the way.
8. Favorite Color?
I really like aqua and turquoise. Very beautiful and calming.
9. Favorite Animal?
When I was younger it was always horses. I'd say I still like horses quite a lot, as well as monkeys. As for an animal I could actually have, definitely dogs.
10. Favorite Perfume?
I really don't own too many, and I generally prefer body splash/body spray, but my favorite of those I own has got to be Strawberry Champagne from Victoria's Secret.
11. Favorite Holiday?
Thanksgiving. My birthday occasionally falls on Thanksgiving. It's done so at least twice, and will again next year. It used to bother me a lot for some reason, but now I think it's a wonderful treat.
12. Have you graduated high school?
Yes I have.
13. Have you ever been out of the country? if so how many times?
I've only ever been out of the country twice: once with my family to Canada, and once with a group of students from across the U.S. on a trip I won to Peru. I'd like to travel more, though, and I'm contemplating study abroad for my junior year of college.
14. Do you speak any other language?
I can speak Spanish, but since I've only taken literature and linguistics classes in Spanish this year, I'm a bit rusty at the moment. I can read and write and understand fluently, but speaking comes slower for me. This is my eighth year studying the language.
15. How many siblings do you have?
Two: a brother and a sister, both older.
16. What is your favorite store?
I love Ulta and Target, as well as Barnes and Noble. I do also like Forever 21.
17. Favorite restaurant?
I think it's local to where I live, so I won't say it here, but it's Italian.
18. Do you like school?
I do like my school. I was absolutely in love with it first semester, but this semester is a bit tougher and friends are transferring to other universities for various reasons so it's like starting over again.
19. Favorite youtuber?
I can't pick one favorite! But I do love Anna Saccone, EGHearts, Community Channel, A Model Recommends, Pinkiecharm and SlightlyScented. There are many more, of course.
20. Favorite movie?
Again, I love the Harry Potter movies and "The Princess Bride". I also love "27 Dresses", "The King's Speech", "The Devil Wears Prada", "Pirates of the Caribbean," "Alice In Wonderland" [the new one], "Megamind," and "Tangled," to name just a few.
21. Favorite TV show?
It was "That 70s Show" when that was still on. I rather enjoyed watching both seasons of the discontinued "Flight of the Conchords" this year as well. Now I'd have to say "Castle" is my all-time favorite, as well as "America's Next Top Model." I am partial to "Glee," but some of the recent episodes have just been disastrous.
22. PC or Mac?
Mac! Before my family got our first Mac, I was terrified of them. Now I've got a MacBook of my own and I love it!
23. What kind of phone do you have?
A rather unexciting red little Samsung sliding phone. It's cute and it does the job, so I don't feel the need to get a fancier one.
24. How tall are you?
5'3." I still consider that average, even though I'm pretty sure average is actually 5'4." Call me vertically challenged; what can I say.
I hope you enjoyed that little tag, and if you'd like to do it, I'd be thrilled to read your answers!
Hope you're having a lovely weekend.
