If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be?
I think I would change the fact that too many people want to change things that are beyond their control. Too many people think they are responsible for other people who would do just fine by themselves. Yes, I think it is comfortable to know that someone is looking after me sometimes, but when something happens that I can't even help, other people can't think that they could have helped it. If that makes sence.
What makes a person respectable?
To me, a respectable person gives respect to other people as well. Also, they use their knowledge for the good of people, and not for the bad. They don't overdue things when they can, and they are reserved. They know when to stop, and they know their own limits.
What do you look for in a friend?
Hah I don't know what I'd do without the friends I have. I think I might look for too much in a friend. Well, a friend needs to want to be my friend too I guess. They should be trustworthy and honest and good for just talking too when you need someone there. They should make you feel wanted, and back you up even when they think you've gone psyco.
What are your hobbies?
Well.. reading of course. As well as reading Harry Potter and the half-blood prince, I'm working on the Lioness Series by Tamora Pierce. I also love music. Listening to it, making it. Everything about it. I play the flute in my High School marching band, and I play the guitar. Also, I love to draw. I'm very passionate about my art, and others' art. I'm thinking about joining the Swim team this fall, and I play soccer and I'm a coxie for our rowing team.
Have or would you give time and money to a charity?
If I had the money to actually give to charity, I would. But I don't, so I do give my time.
What is the one thing you would most like to accomplish?
I would like to know that I have touched or helped someone ALOT. I know alot of people say that, but it's so true. Also, I would like to know that when I pass away, that I'll look at my life and know I've lived it to the fullest and done everything I could have done the right way.
Who is your role model?
I met my role model my Freshman year of high school.. that was last year. My role model is Carmen Pace. She was a senior, but she's gone now because she graduated. I don't think she knows how much I looked up to her. She was Drum Major of the Marching Band, and the best flute player I've ever known. She was just an all-around good person and she found time to befriend younger people like me even with her busy senior year. The quality I admire most about her is her confidence in herself.
What trait most annoys you about other people?
Just plainly ignorant people. People who strive for being the 'best' in life, and nothing more.
What do you want to do for a living?
I want to be a Marine Biologist, or a Music/Art teacher.
If your friend was attacked (by a person, animal, or (in the magic world) beast), what would you do?
Well, do everything in my power to save them. I'd hate too lose a friend that I know I could have saved.
Would you ever use an Unforgivable Curse for any reason?
I would if it was my last ever choice.
What do you think are your top five abilities or qualities?
1- Caring. I care for people I don't even know. I think I have a very sensitive heart and I always have a thing for comforting people who need it. 2- Friendliness. I am super friendly. I make friends really easily. It's weird though, because I hate exposing myself to people like speaking infront of audiences or being in plays. 3- Energetic. I have SO much energy. I always know how to make people laugh and I love it. 4- Creative. I love art, and everything that has to do with art. I share a room with my younger sister, so it's not like i can just do whatever I want with it. But I'll tell ya, my bunk space is amazing =) and 5- Patience. I can wait forever. Maybe it's because I tend to get sidetracked sometimes, but when someone needs help, or doesn't know what their doing, I help.
What do you think are your top five weaknesses or worst qualities?
1- I don't have enough confidence in myself. 2- I hold grudges a really long time. 3- I care way to much about what others think about me. 4- I'm sometimes quiet and I don't live up to what I would like to be adn 5- I judge people before I completely know them. That's rare, but I hate myself for even doing it sometimes.
Define in your own words the following key traits:
When you know something has to be done, even though there's a scary situation present, and you do it.
backing up those you love and those who love you and never leaving their side in times of need.
the amount of knowledge you have, either books or street, useful or not.
The force that pushes you to do something.
What house do you think DOESN'T fit you?
Slytherin. I don't believe that one has to be pure-blood or even close in order to succeed in Hogwarts.
