If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be?
I’m going to say human nature here. That counts as changing one thing about the world right? Anyways, I think we can all definitely live with a little more respect and a little less, sorry for the language, bitchiness. I hate the way when you accidentally bump into someone along the road, and even though you apologize, the person still glares at you and sometimes they even mutter stuff under their breaths! And I don’t mean to sound political and all but I think if we could all practice tolerance and if we could all understand each other better, there wouldn’t be this big issue of terrorism. So yeah, I’d say that if there was one thing I could change about the world, I would change human nature because people need to be more warm and friendly! That way, everyone benefits!
What makes a person respectable?
To me, the way a person acts and thinks makes a person respectable. Some people think that just because a person is older means they deserve to be respected but I disagree. Some of the older people I know act like they’re 5 year olds. Definitely not someone I would be respecting. I think that a person commands respect from his/her actions. Like if a schoolboy stands up for his friend in front of a bully. I think that is respectable because even though now both he and his friend are in trouble, at least he’s tried to do something about it by standing up for his friend.
What do you look for in a friend?
I look for someone in whom I can confide my problems so that means that this person has to be trustworthy because I don’t need a radio broadcast system for a friend. I would find someone whom I can have fun with, share laughs together. A friend would also have to be someone who is loyal but I guess this also falls under the trustworthy part. I would also look for someone who I know will be there for me no matter what happens. This person would have to go through thick and thin with me.
What are your hobbies?
I love going online. In fact I think I spend most of my time sitting here staring at the monitor than anything else. When I’m on the computer, I’ll either be making icons or just listening to music whilst having a conversation with friends online. I also love reading. I read every night before I go to bed. It helps me sleep in a weird way. I love watching TV. Well, mostly DVDs because they have nothing good on cable. I also love singing because it calms me down whenever I’m frustrated or just feeling moody.
Have or would you give time and money to a charity?
I have given both money and time to charity. On Saturdays, when they have flag days, I make sure I donate to at least one of the organizations. I have also gone to help out at an Old Folks’ Home once. I spent a whole afternoon with them, just playing games, listening to their stories and basically just livening up their day. It was really fun and was quite self-fulfilling to see them enjoying themselves so much.
What is the one thing you would most like to accomplish?
For now, as a short-term goal, to finish cleaning up my room! I started a year ago and have been procrastinating ever since! So it’s pretty much still just a big mess. But seriously, the one thing I would most like to accomplish is to make enough money so that I can chill out and just enjoy life. Own a nice car, pretty house and travel to all sorts of exotic places like the Maldives.
Who is your role model?
Wow, this one is tough. Honestly, I never really thought about this before. I guess I’ve an image of who I want to be. A person who’s more responsible, less lethargic, more hardworking, more daring and very much less procrastinator.
What trait most annoys you about other people?
I think that would be how people tend to be so self-absorbed. Sometimes people tend to be so caught up in their moment of moping about their own problems, they fail to see the bigger picture: that other people have even bigger problems than they do. Sometimes it bugs me so much, I just have the sudden urge to grab the person and shake him/her really hard and just tell him/her to get a grip!
What do you want to do for a living?
Well, I pretty much have the rest of my life planned out for me because of what I chose to study: Hospitality and Tourism Management. So I’m looking forward to working in the hotel line or the food and beverage line. Both are pretty exciting because I get to meet new people everyday and let’s face it, the tourism industry is a pretty secure one.
If your friend was attacked (by a person, animal, or (in the magic world) beast), what would you do?
In the magic world, I would whip out my wand and probably curse the beast away. In the real world(sigh), I would try to clobber the person or animal, if it was small. If it’s too big for me to handle, then I think the best bet for both me and my friend would be to get out my cell phone and call for help. And whilst waiting for backup, I would try to clobber the person or animal or at least free my friend from the attacker so we can both get our asses out of there quick!
Would you ever use an Unforgivable Curse for any reason?
No. Is sectumsempra an Unforgivable Curse? If it’s not then, that’s the worst I would go to if the person really annoys me or if the person is attacking me or my friends. In a dire situation, that’s the worst curse I would throw out. Other than that, no, I’ll never use an Unforgivable Curse. Because, well, it’s unforgivable! I mean we all deserve a chance, even the one who is itching for an Unforgivable Curse!
What do you think are your top five abilities or qualities?
I have been gifted with the gift of gab so I would say that one of my abilities is to talk. A lot. If someone needs someone to talk to, I’m the one to look for.
I’m also someone who can be trusted. All your secrets and problems will be safe with me.
There’s also loyalty in my blood. I will definitely stand up for a friend if he/she is in trouble and I will stand by that person no matter what.
I think I’m also rather good at making people laugh. I don’t know why. It’s probably my sarcastic comments. But I’m quite proud of this ability of mine because it has come in handy in tense situations and when you need something to break the ice.
I also possess a fair amount of leadership skills. I’m all ears when it comes to having group discussions, I treat everyone with equally and I respect those who deserve it.
What do you think are your top five weaknesses or worst qualities?
Definitely, lethargy. I tend to be very sluggish sometimes, refusing to get off my butt once I’ve firmly placed in on somewhere cushy.
Procrastination is my next worst enemy. It’s always, “I’ll do it tomorrow instead.” And that tomorrow never ever comes.
Punctuality would be next on the list. I’m hardly ever on time. Ever. It’s like a disease. If I’m supposed to meet someone at 2, I’ll leave my house at 2.
Paranoia is another weakness. This is probably contributed by a few bad friendships. It takes me quite sometime to properly trust someone because I’m afraid of being burnt. And even if I do trust someone, I start having loads of paranoid thoughts.
Another weakness is that I take quite sometime to warm up to people. If I was thrown into a group of strangers, I would probably sit and just listen to them talk till I’ve found something to talk about. I’m not one of those who actually go up to others and introduce themselves and be all comfortable about it.
Define in your own words the following key traits:
Courage: Being able to do something that scares the life out of you or that might endanger you in all aspects (mentally, physically, emotionally).
Loyalty: Being true to your word and always standing by your friends, be it sunshine or rain.
Intelligence: The ability to comprehend things and to put them to good use.
Ambition: A goal that a person sets to achieve and in that process of achieving, this person will do anything and everything to get to that goal.
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 would say Hufflepuff. I’m just not a person who’s hardworking enough. I don’t strive hard enough and I’m incorrigibly lethargic so I don’t think I would fit in well in Hufflepuff.
