If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be?
I would like people to be more conscientious and tolerant of others. We need to take responsibility for our actions, we need to be informed. I hate how disposable our world has become. We are extremely wasteful and negligent, and we'll eventually run out of our natural resources. I'm sad that people have so little respect for our earth. It's our home.
What makes a person respectable?
I believe a respectable person will be honest, will listen to your opinion and consider it, will go out of their way to help a stranger. I think that compassion is one of the most respectable (and most underratted) things a person can have.
What do you look for in a friend?
Well, nice people are always a priority! I can get along with a lot of different types of people, but a good sense of humor, spontanaity, and the confidence to be themselves are the top of my list. I like people who are honest, about themselves especially, because you can't really be friends with a person who is pretending to be something they're not (I've learned from experience). I also like people who are not super agressive (like, picking fights), because I'm pretty laid back.
What are your hobbies?
Reading! I am a beginning knitter, and I am very crafty, I love to decorate and make things. Coloring (sounds silly) is so fun for me! I also do scrapbooking, and my mom and I are building a dollhouse this summer, so that is a fun new thing I'm learning about.
Have or would you give time and money to a charity?
Yes, if I were rich in either! I have donated time and services to a lot of community events in the past, like the March of Dimes, and the Cancer walk, things that I can really help out in. (I'm a massage therapist, so we often have a tent set up to massage participants/volunteers).
What is the one thing you would most like to accomplish?
This might seem silly, but the one thing I always wanted to be when I was little was an actor, even through HS (I went to a performing arts HS even), and now real life happens, but I guess I would love to be in just the tiniest little corner of some big screen some day. You'll all see me as an extra!! haha!
Who is your role model?
I would have to say my former boss Mindy. She was the dean at my Massage school, and she was so inspiring, and fun! I learned from her that words do matter, and that people have the ability to change the world with just a positive thought. The most important rule in life is to harm none, and the second is to have fun, and of course to be true to yourself always.
What trait most annoys you about other people?
I really hate posers!!! I have had a lot of "friends" that are really cool at first, and seem like we have all these common interests, and then you find out they're just lying cos they feel like the real them isn't good enough. Everyone is good enough.
What do you want to do for a living?
What I already do, which is be a Massage Therapist, and a Teacher. I'm actually going to school to be a High School English teacher, but right now I teach at the massage school. I really love seeing people find a new proffesion, and to see them blossom.
If your friend was attacked (by a person, animal, or (in the magic world) beast), what would you do?
Call for help first, then jump in and try to help them. I guess if the assaulter had a weapon and I was unarmed (or unwanded for that matter), I would try to distract them, or find a way to incapacitate them, without causing them to kill myself or my friend (cos what good would that be??)
Would you ever use an Unforgivable Curse for any reason?
I guess you can never tell in a "kill-or-be-killed" environment, but I would excercise EVERY possible means, and if that was my only chance of survival, I probably would. For sport? Certainly not.
What do you think are your top five abilities or qualities?
-I have pretty good problem solving abilities.
-I am an apt leader.
-I am willing to compromise
-I am a great listener.
-My wit knows no bounds (ha!)
What do you think are your top five weaknesses or worst qualities?
This is easier than the last ...
-I can be lazy & procrastinate. :(
-I can sometimes put others needs before my own (a little too much. Ah, for the power to say NO)
-I dislike confrontation (of the emotional, wordy kind)
-I am nearsighted (let's hope I never lose my glasses in the midst of battle)
-I have been known to hold a grudge (but you have to push me really, really far to get me there)
Define in your own words the following key traits:
Courage: Being true to yourself. A truly courageous person doesn't have to seek approval from others that they have done the right thing.
Loyalty: Standing by your friends/family/cause/etc. no matter what, but also willing to accept their flaws. Truly loyal people should be willing to change and adapt through time, and compromise when things get rough.
Intelligence: Ah, so many types of intelligence. There are book smarts, street smarts, science smarts, language smarts ... I think the truly intelligent is well rounded in all area, able to adapt, quick thinking, and above all, know when they are wrong.
Ambition: Be smart enough to know what you want, and brave enough to do it. The truly ambitious will never stop climbing, because each goal conquered will lead on to bigger and better things.
Name: Marcelle, Celle, or Cellie
Age: 23 (ah, I'm old)
What house do you think DOESN'T fit you?
I think I would be comfortable almost anywhere, as long as no one is mean! ;)
Where did you find out about us?
Random web trolling ... uh, I think it was link after link after link, originating in one of my icon communities.
