If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be? If I could change one thing about the world, I would not change a thing. Most people would say "Why not? Such power to change the world into your world!" But it's not MY world, it's everyone's world. If you changed anything about our world today, it wouldn't be our world anymore. Everything we have come to know and love about this world we have, would be different. Everyone can't be happy, or loving, or peaceful because then no one could learn anything. There has to be some contreversey or the world would be worse off then it is.
What makes a person respectable? The most important qualities that make a person respectable are the following: honesty, integrity, and ambition. Honesty is a very respectable quality. A person can't go very far anywhere unless they have an honest personality, otherwise no one will trust them. Integrity is also very important. If a person can't stick with what they're supposed to do, then they're useless. Ambition is also a respectable quality. Nobody likes a lazy person who doesn't want to do anything with their life.
What do you look for in a friend? What I look for in a friend is usually a good personality and someone who likes to have fun. What I look for in a real friend is unquestionable honesty, a loyal heart, a good sense of humor, a shoulder to cry on, a helping hand, and someone to journey with. The most important part though, is someone not only to be my friend, but who I can be a friend to in return.
What are your hobbies? My hobbies typically include writing, reading, photogrpahy, and film making. If you can't find me anywhere, you can usually find me with my nose in a book in my favorite chair. During the summer, I also love biking, horsebackriding, and swimming.
Have or would you give time and money to a charity? I think it is important for everyone to give to charity. Which charity they decide and how much is up to them. Everyone puts time and effort into something at one time or another, and with some people their entire lives are dedicated to a charity that they feel strongly about. I think society needs to give each other a helping hand, and by donations this can be done. And Yes, I plan on giving to charities that I feel are important to me.
What is the one thing you would most like to accomplish? I think there is more that one thing i would like to accomplish while I am still able to. However, the most significant of these would be to simply make a difference. So many people just walk through life trying to get it done in their own way for their own convenience. It doesn't matter how or to how many people, I would just like to make a difference. So when I'm gone, someone somewhere can stop and say "Wow, that girl was pretty cool. I'm really glad I had the chance to know her."
Who is your role model? I'm not sure I really have one set role model. There have been a number of people who have impacted my life in some way or the other. Some have been teachers, some have been family, some have been friends, all have changed my life in a phenomenal way.
What trait most annoys you about other people? This is a tough one. I think the trait that would annoy me the most would have to be... attitude. Everyone has one, yes even me, but what I mean by attitude is those people who believe that there is something about them that makes them better than the rest of the society at large. We breathe the same air, were brought into this world the same way, so what makes you any better than me or anyone else?
What do you want to do for a living? I don't know yet what I want to do for a living specifically. Right now, I'm in school for a Theatre Management degree. I know I want to work in the theatre but I don't know exactly what aspect yet. I like the business side of it though, the advertisement, promotional work, that kind of stuff. I'll just take it one step at a time for now.
If your friend was attacked (by a person, animal, or (in the magic world) beast), what would you do? Me? Probably scream and start attacking out of passion. Probably not the smartest thing in the world to do, but it's what I'd do.
Would you ever use an Unforgivable Curse for any reason? I think I'm a bit too kind-hearted for that kinda thing. It'd have to be a really stressed day and you got on my last nerve... maybe it's not as impossible as it seems... why, wanna make something of it?
What do you think are your top five abilities or qualities? My top 5 qualities/abilites would have to be (in no specific order): my talents, my brain, my loyalty, my ambition, and my dedication. These are what I feel are my best because these are what I think would benefit others the most. I always try my best in everything I do, even if I end up failing.
What do you think are your top five weaknesses or worst qualities? My top 5 weaknesses/worst qualities would probably be my emotions, my clumsiness, my loyalty, my indecision when it comes to something important, and my self-esteem. These are traits that I definately want to work on and change so they are no longer bad qualities. Everyone has their struggles in life, and these are a few of mine.
Define in your own words the following key traits:
Courage: Courage is having the strength to stand up for what you believe in, no matter if it's right or if it's wrong. The strength to stand up for it, not because of why, but because it's what you believe.
Loyalty: Loyalty is standing by what you believe in. Through all the ups and downs in life, you stick with it because that's what is required of you to do.
Intelligence: Intelligence is not just about being smart, but about being wise. You could be the smartest person in the world and still have no intelligence. The difference lies in the decisions you make.
Ambition: Ambition is about having a strong desire in you to do something in life. Whether it's being a great athlete or just to make a difference. It's that will inside that drives you to get up in the morning and do something.
