If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be?
If I could change one thing about the world it would have to be conflict. Not just combat, but any form. Everyday there is some kind of dispute on the news that led to injury or death. And most of the time it is over something that is not worth fighting about. So I would want to rid us of conflict between others.
What makes a person respectable?
For a person to be respectible I believe they themselves must have respect for themselves, because without selfrespect they cannot have respect for others. They must also know their purpose in life and fulfil their goals without hurting others along the way. It is not worth the pain of others to gain your own pleasures in life.
What do you look for in a friend?
Someone I would find to be a good firend would be funny, caring, compationate, courageous, helpful, and intellegent. They are able to tell when you are upset without having to be told. They can cheer you up easily because they know you so well. When you are in a bad situation they are the first ones to help you with whatever it may be. When you are making the wrong choices, that would effect the lives of yourself or others, they are there to council you, and turn you in the right direction.
What are your hobbies?
I love art. Ever since I was a little kid, I knew I would grow up to do someting with art. I love to draw, paint, and do ceramics. I also enjoy designing costumes.

What is the one thing you would most like to accomplish?

All this is to gain a career as a set and costume designer for movies. My top ambition is to work for Tim Burton. His films are the best visually, with his often used combinations of black, white, and red.
Who is your role model?
My mother is because she handles everything that goes on in our family. From the bills, to taking my sister and I to school. She also works long hours to make up for lost income. She is the strong point of my life, without her around I wouldn't have become the capable person I am today. She has taught me to not depend on others to take care of everything in my life.

If your friend was attacked (by a person, animal, or (in the magic world) beast), what would you do?
I would spring to their aid as quickly as possible. I would try to think fast as what the best solution would be to help them. If need be I would sacrifice myself to save them.
Would you ever use an Unforgivable Curse for any reason?
Yes, I would use one, but only in a dire situation, and only against enemies putting me or others in harm. I wouldn't find it necissary to use it against someone I only disliked, as a way of getting even. There would have to be grave danger involved.
What do you think are your top five abilities or qualities?
Artistic: I think it is one of my best qualities because it helps me see the beauty in things that others would only take as ugly.
Witty: I think it is important to have humor, when there are so many depressing concerns going on in peoples daily lives.
Compationate: I alway try to listen to others when they are in bad situations. I give them someone to let all their feeling out to. I give them helpful advice and best wishes.
Openminded: I alway try to keep an open mind when encountering new things in life. Being openminded enfluences my political views, and the way I lead my life.
Competant: I think it is important to be able to care for myself. I want to do things for myself. I don't know how my life will be in the future, but I want to be prepared for anything. If I need to fix my car, I want to know how to do it. If there are jobs to be done around the house, I want to be able to do them.
What do you think are your top five weaknesses or worst qualities?
Distant: At times I can be a little isolated. I tend to hide my feelings from others and not let them know when something is upseting me.
Stubborn: I can be very stubborn, if I get into an arguement, I usually am not the one to back down. I also do not like to apologize first, but I will if I know I was in the wrong.
Sarcasam: I do like to be sarcastic, and I am all the time, which isn't always bad, except that I tend to go too far sometimes. Often I will play pranks on people I know, or use cutting remarks that are funny, but at the same time hurtful to them. Sometimes this results in crying.
Profanatory: I have one of the dirties mouths. I can often be heard cursing long strings of profane words. I DO try to cut down, but sometimes they just slip out because of habbit. My bird has even started saying the words, and my mother is upset, so I really try hard when I am around her.
Procrastinator: I tend to put things off until the last minute. This is very bad because it is usually my school work. I leave huge projects until the day before they are due. I am capable of doing well on them, but this causes stress for me to do a good job in a short time.

What house do you think DOESN'T fit you? (This question is optional for those who feel they just DO NOT fit in a house. Please explain WHY.)
I would have to say I don't think I belong in Slytherin. I do have ambitions but, I lack some of the means to obtain them. I don't feel it necessary to hurt or betray others to get what I want.
