So sorry about the bad LJ cut! :(

If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be? "I would bring World Peace" just kidding with you! In honesty the thing that I would change about this world is the human race's inability to put themselves in other people's shoes. Society today are unable (or rather unwilling) to view things from other cultural stand point and truly understand what it means to be such an ethnic/religious/culutra group. With the ability to see things from other's eyes they would widen their prospectives of other races, religions and cultures. Think of how man wars may have been stopped by others taking the time to really understand those around them, or perhaps problems that continue to tear apart our socities may have been solved by now. Though one must wonder if more problem's might arrise from this new ability? Hmn an ultimate pardoxial question. </p>

What makes a person respectable? The ability to take self-responsibility for their own actions and do for themselves what they are more than capable of doing, be it work, caring for their families, or simple chores. You see so many people now of days unwilling to take responsibility for themselves, skirking in their duties and work and having no pride in what they do, even if the job is the lowest of all. So, to meet someone who is willing to do what is needed shows me just how respectable of a person they are.


What do you look for in a friend? In honesty I don't ask for much in a friend beyond an act of true caring. If they are interested in who you are and actually care to take the time to see that in you that is what a friend is. However, it does help if they lack the need to take advantage of you in the process ;). Otherwise everything goes! I am a very friendly person and I don't tend to seek any one quality in a friend, beyond that they are willing to be friendly back.


What are your hobbies? I tend to be a thrill seeker and yet at the same time a home-body. On one hand I ride and race Dirt Bikes and Wave Runners, and play group sports, while the other hand I love to create digital art, write stories, and watch movies.


Have or would you give time and money to a charity? I have given time and given money to a charity. I use to work for several non-profit agencies that places animals in homes, devoting skill in the office as well as in the field getting all of these animals placed. While at my restraunt I work I gave a large portion of my tips from the charity night we held to the relief of Katrina victims and donations at holidays to children hospitals.


What is the one thing you would most like to accomplish? The only thing I would love to accomplish is graduating the University. I would be the first in my family to complete a 4 year degree. However, the hardest part of all lies after that, and that's applying the degree.


Who is your role model? Growing up I never really had a role model.. Perhaps I was influenced by so many different people, while on the other hand maybe one person never truly stood out enough to make me scream "I want to be like you!". I guess my role models consisted of everyone around me, taking their special traits and truly learning from them.


What trait most annoys you about other people? The thing that bugs me most about people is their lack of consideration for everyone around them. I see it all the time and live with it on a daily basis, and you can't help to wonder what goes (which may not always be the case) through their head as they do something very rude (or even harmful) to another person. You see alot of it working in the restaurant business, whether if it is directed at their own family and friends or at you personally. If there was more consideration in the world, perhaps it'd be a better place.


What do you want to do for a living? In honesty I would love to create artwork for a living. Such as cd jackets movie posters etc, anything that would allow me to be able to sit at home and paint and write on the computer all day long. Though on the other hand I could see myself becoming a nurse or even going into the Marketing Business.


If your friend was attacked (by a person, animal, or (in the magic world) beast), what would you do? Honestly if the thing was still in the area I would attempt to drive it off before taking care of my friend to the best of my abilities. Once I was sure he/she was ok I would go for help.. I tend to dive into things like that rashly, though with some quick wits I manage to turn a disaster into something quite less.


Would you ever use an Unforgivable Curse for any reason? Only in a life or death situation. One in which someone would end up dead if I didn't do anything about it. However, after the whole thing, my conscience would eat at me the rest of my life.


What do you think are your top five abilities or qualities?



1)I care way too much. (I tend to worry things into the ground and replay things continuously in my head till it eats me)

2) Loyal to my friends to a fault (I will defend my friends even when they have done something I know is morally wrong.)

3) My ability to learn quickly (I tend to pick up things very quickly if left to my own devices. Give me something to play with and I'll have it figured out in an hour or two)

4) My multisided views (I can't look at one thing from one angle alone. I have to view it from every side and angle before I try to make my mind up on a matter)

5) My ability to remain calm in emergencies.(During emergencies I tend to lose emotion and become completely autopiloted doing what my instincts tell me versus what my mind wants me to do)


What do you think are your top five weaknesses or worst qualities?

1) I care way too much (Again I can make myself physically ill over the choices I make, even when I can't go back and change them I will mull it over for months, wondering if I had done anything different would things have changed?)

2) I can speak without thinking (Sometimes things just come out, whether I have had weighed everything or not, my instincts kick in and I stick my foot in my mouth)

3) I'm extremely hard on myself and not on others (I am way too overly critical of everything I do. Whether it is writing and creating to my own looks. Everything I see of myself needs improvement or was done poorly)

4) Stubborness (When I get my feet planted, boy do I get my feet planted. I will not give up on an issue easily, even if it comes down to having to look it up on line, just to get my point across. I want to be heard, and I will stick in there till I am)

5) I will work myself to death, rather than take care of myself. (I tend to work alot when I'm sick. Refusing to stay down and resting. Perhaps, why I tend to get sick frequently, but at least it never lasts)


Define in your own words the following key traits:


Courage: The ability to take control of a situation by performing an act in a selfless manner. It doesn't take true bravery to be courageous, its just having your heart in the right place.


Loyalty: The ability (or perhaps in some instances) strength to stand besides those friends, family or morals that you truly love, uphold, and believe in.


Intelligence: The ability to learn from one's own life experiences and benefit from it. Intelligence is more than book smarts unlike everyone assumes, it is also common sense, and the ability to correct mistakes.. (Like my instance with the coding! *blushes*)


Ambition: An ability that can be a double edged sword depending on the intentions that drive it. Good in some aspects as it will push someone to do very great things whether it is curing a disease, running a great coproration, and yet bad in others, we can rattle off nameless dictators and rulers that had their ambition in the wrong place. It is a push pull system that needs alot of checks and balances.
