EDIT: fixed the lj user name in the last question.


If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be? If there’s only one thing I could change then I’d probably find a cure to cancer. My dad died from it five years ago, and my uncle just died from it a couple of weeks ago. I hate it and would do anything to find the cure.
What makes a person respectable? Their actions make a person respectable. If someone just says something, but doesn’t back it up with actions then they’re not proving anything. A person can always say whatever they want, but it’s like the old saying goes “actions speak louder than words.”
What do you look for in a friend? I always look for someone honest, trustworthy, and fun. If I can trust someone with a secret and be able to joke around with them, then I’ll consider them a friend for life.
What are your hobbies? I like reading, writing, drawing, listening to music, and talking. Reading, writing, and drawing let me escape into any world that I choose and get away from everything. Whatever emotion I’m feeling, there’s a song that I can listen to that relates exactly to how I’m feeling. And I’ve always talked a lot and enjoy doing so because I’m an only child and I just like having someone around to talk to.
Have or would you give time and money to a charity? In high school I belonged to a couple of different community service groups that helped the elderly and less fortunate children. It’s not exactly a charity, but it’s close to it I would think. I also try to give money or can goods to food kitchens when they come to collect. If I had the money to spend, I would give more. The same goes with time. I love helping people.
What is the one thing you would most like to accomplish? Right now, the thing I want to accomplish most is finishing college. I really love it and want to get my degree so I can start teaching, which is my dream job. I just don’t have the money.
Who is your role model? My mom and my aunt are both pretty cool. They’ve both lost their husbands to cancer and are being strong and supporting their families. My mom had a rough time after my dad died, but she’s made it through and is trying her best to take care of everything that she never had to do before, like paying bills.
What trait most annoys you about other people? I don’t like people who consistently lie about big things. If someone can’t tell me the truth why should I bother with them? I’m also a stickler for correct grammar. I’m going to be a teacher someday and it just annoys me to people who don’t take the time to spell or write correctly. It’s like they’re wasting the education they have.
What do you want to do for a living? I’m going to school to become a teacher. Hopefully I’ll finish that soon and start teaching preschool or kindergarten. I’ve always loved kids and school so that’s always seemed like the perfect career for me.
If your friend was attacked (by a person, animal, or (in the magic world) beast), what would you do? Truthfully, I’d probably stand there in shock for a few seconds then try my best to help them–whether that be by running to get help or by jumping into the mix myself. If it was something I couldn’t handle by myself then I’d run as fast as possible to get help, but if I could handle it then I’d jump right in.
Would you ever use an Unforgivable Curse for any reason? I don’t think I would. I don’t like violence and hurting people.
What do you think are your top five abilities or qualities?
1.I’m very loyal. If I consider you a friend then I’ll stick by you through anything, even if you end up not doing the same to me.
2.I’m good with kids. I get along well with them and just enjoy being around them.
3.I’m a good listener. Ever since I was young, my friends have always come to me with problems even if I didn’t know how to solve them and I’ve always listened to everything they had to say. 4.I’m good at math. I can count and subtract figures in my head which is especially good while I’m at work–cashiering at a grocery store.
5.I’m silly. If I see that one of my friends is sad or upset, I try my best to cheer them up by saying something that’s usually pretty silly and doesn’t make a lot of sense just to cheer them up.
What do you think are your top five weaknesses or worst qualities?
1. I’m extremely trusting. I will believe just about anything someone tells me without trying to find out if it’s true or not.
2.I’m a stickler for grammar to the point where I’ll start correcting people at work and sometimes even random people on the street or in shops. For some reason, this tends to upset others.
3.I’m stubborn. If I want something my way, I don’t stop until I get it. I also won’t listen a lot of the times if someone tells me something I don’t want to hear even if it might be what I need.
4.I’m bad at managing money. Even though I’m good at math, I’m not good at keeping track of my money and paying bills.
5.I’m a procrastinator. I’ll wait until the night before a term paper is due to write it–sometimes until the morning it’s due. If I have time to do it, I’ll wait until the end of that time.
Define in your own words the following key traits:
Courage: Not being afraid to stand up for something or someone you believe in.
Loyalty: Sticking by someone or an idea even though it might not be popular.
Intelligence: Having the knowledge of facts and/or common sense and actually putting it to use.
Ambition: Going after something you want no matter what stands in your way.

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 have nothing against any of the houses, truthfully. I’m sure that I could fit into any depending on what part of my personality is taking center stage that day.
