If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be? Less hate and ignorance, more love and acceptance. There's so much pesimism and disrespect, it makes the world a very unhappy place to live. If there was more willingness to learn and to help, that would be a grat change.
What makes a person respectable? Loyalty, compassion, respect for others, courteous in all places. When you are respectable to others, despite position or principle, that alone will make you respectable.
What do you look for in a friend? Sense of humoris a must because I love to laugh and have a good time with my friends. Loyalty is always a good characteristic, I consider myself loyal and expect the same in return. Someone who is understanding and easy to talk to can be a good help when going through hard times. Not a goody two-shoes, but someone willing to have fun even at extreme costs.
What are your hobbies? I love to read and write, historical romance and fantasy. I love music and movies, I love to spend time with friends
Have or would you give time and money to a charity? If I had more time/money, I would definetly give it. I give alot of time doing service in my church, and I'm always willing to give an extra hand or dollar to help those less fortunate than me.
What is the one thing you would most like to accomplish? Become an accomplished author. Romance, historical fiction, mystery, fantasy... everything. Writers make such a difference in peoples lives and I would like to do the same for others some day. I am also a hopeless romantic, and I love to write those stories, considering how much I enjoy them.
Who is your role model? My mother, Marcia Lynn McClure and Jo Rowling. Amazing women. My mother has raised eight children in her home with love and religion included, and the other two are authors that I admire greatly. I look up to all of them and would like to be like each of them as I grow older.
What trait most annoys you about other people? Ignorance, hypocrisy, liars. These people have no respect for themselves or those around them. Ignorant people don't have the courtesy to listen to "the other side of the story," they simply judge without caring. Hypocrites make idiots out of themselves by being two faced, and that is in no way respectable. Liars don't have the courage to be honest, hiding away in the untruth.
What do you want to do for a living? Become an author and a mother. And successful. I want to be a stay at home mom, but meanwhwile I'll also make an income with the books that I will write out of my home. I want to be successful at both "jobs."
If your friend was attacked (by a person, animal, or (in the magic world) beast), what would you do? Be sure that person has medical attention, send them cards/flowers/ etc. and make sure they are happy as possible and taken care of, even at my own expense with time/money, etc.
Would you ever use an Unforgivable Curse for any reason? Never. I might bend the rules in other places, but those can ruin peoples lives and I'm not about that. They are called unforgivable for a reason, and I have no desire to be on the wrong end of the Ministry.
What do you think are your top five abilities or qualities? Many adults look down on my parents for raising me the way they did, but I'm very proud of the way I was raised. I was learned to respect my elders, work hard and mind my manners. I'm very responsible and dependable, you can count on me do do whatever nessecry, I take responsibility very seriously. I am compassionate and understanding, always a good friend. I love to learn, and spend many hours at school in the library reading up on things I don't know. I'm not joking, I love going to school. I am a college student and I learn up on all that I can. I am a strong hard worker, willing to help anyone in need. I love to have fun, even if that means bending the rules a tiny bit.
What do you think are your top five weaknesses or worst qualities? My friends often point these out - a little too often if you ask me. I spend money too much, I'm terrible with my budget. I am often lazy, when there's nothing to do, though I try to stay active. Sometimes I get proud and too caught up with myself and what I want, and then I won't listen to others and I only want things done my way. I'm sometimes unsympathetic, and I only see what I want to see. I may be a good friend, but I'm also very blunt (I have a hard time thinking before I speak) and I say what I feel, regardless of the outcome.
