If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be?
If I could change one thing about the world it would probably be the fact that money controls almost everyone’s daily life. I know money is a priority and that a certain amount is needed to live a good life, but I’m talking about the overly rich people, the greedy people, and the people who think they’re better because they have more money. It makes me sick that there are people out there who own five houses, six cars, and hold power they don’t deserve when people are living in boxes in the streets. When people are starving and dying in a poor third world country. If I could change anything about the world it would be that people who share and help other people more often.

Who is your favorite Hogwarts teacher?
Hmmm I’d have to say Professor McGonagall just because she’s the nicest Head of House and she really cares about her students. She’s wise and fair and the whole transforming from a cat to herself thing was pretty cool.

Who is your favorite character in Harry Potter?
Two in the same, Fred and George Weasley. Their pranks are priceless and their knowledge of the school is fantastic. No one else could have taken the Maruader’s Map from Filch’s office in first year. They’re sly, funny, and add a lot of fun to the story.

Who is your least favorite character in Harry Potter?
Ummm Wormtail. I hate him. He’s a traitor, horrible friend, backstabber, and a liar. Who would sell their best friends out for power (which he still does not have because he’s a whimpering coward)? He stayed in the form of a rat for more than 12 years out of fear! He just disgusts me. I would choose Voldemort over him. Enough said.

What makes a person respectable?
I think what makes a person respectable is when they don’t care what anyone else thinks about them. For me, it’s the hardest thing to do. I think it takes courage and sercurity and a strong sense of self. Today, with all the judgements people can pass and with all of the rumors spread it’s very hard to be your self and stand out. I think it’s a very courageous and admirable thing.

What is your take on religion?
To each his own. I’m not a very religious person, myself. I was born and raised a Catholic Christian and when to Catholic elementary school for 9 years. While there I learned all about Jesus and God and Moses and all those Biblical figures, but today I think it’s bull. Don’t get me wrong, I have an enormous problem with the Catholic church, not the religion itself. I am a practicing Buddhist and while God isn’t my thing I still think that people have the right to chose what they believe in.

What do you think about house elves?
When it comes to house elves I am torn. I could either be a Hermione or a Ron. While I think it’s wrong to have slaves and servants, they seem to want to do it, with the exception of Dobby. I know slavery ended more than a century ago and it is a very wrong thing thing to base a country on, but as long as they want to serve others on their own free will, more power to them.

What do you look for in a friend?
Hmm In a friend I look for someone who’s loyal and trustworthy. I have a very hard time trusting people because I have been betrayed so many times in the past. You know, when you tell a secret to a friend hoping that it will stay in the privacy of your room, but the next day it’s all over school. So trust is definetly important. Also, someone who is able to have fun. I hate downers. I know this girl who just talks about how bad stuff is all the time and I really hate it sometimes. And I would like my friend to like the same things I like. You know, someone who will get drunk on New Years with you or cry about the pain your feeling with you. Those are truly great friends.

Would you rather have friends and family or money and success?
I am going to be noble and do-gooder-ish and say friends and family. You know the cliched saying: Money can’t buy happiness. When it comes to money or friends I would rather have shared a thousand good times with my friends than have a limo and a mansion. Personally, I think that being famous is hard work. I would probably crack under the pressure, stress, and garbage for the tabloids. Plus, I hate being the center of attention.

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
My hair. Oh goddess, MY HAIR! I hate it! It is ten times thicker than the thickest hair and so hard to manage that I usually have to wear it up. When I don’t wear it up I have to straighten it which takes a gallon of BioSilk hair stuff and 3 hours of burning heat from my straightening iron. It’s just... gah! Not something fun to do.

What do you feel is your best quality?
I think my best quality is my ability to understand people. I don’t know how, but I can sense when people are angry or annoyed and just want to be left alone (unlike some totally oblivious people!). I guess another quality would be that I’m smart. Though I hate self-praise, everyone always tells me that I’m the smartest girl in the class. I graduated 3rd in my class last year.

What are your hobbies?
I love writing, drawing, and reading fanfiction (Fire and Ice!!!). Out of all of those I love writing the most. I just love that I can express myself through words. When you write you can create your own little world that no one else can touch or altar but you. You create the story line, you create and develop the characters, and you help the reader create this divine image that is your book. It’s my dream to write and publish a novel one day.

Do you want to have children?
Yes. Though they do have their annoying and moody points, I love kids. They’re just so much fun and the thought of creating my own little person is just amazing. In a way, I think that kids help you grow up, but also bring out the kid in you, if you know what I’m saying.

Have or would you give time and money to a charity?
I have given donations when I went to church and I have spent time doing charitable things. 25 hours worth in order to receive Confirmation. That was fun *rolls eyes*. Its not my favorite thing to do, but once and a while I do believe it can be good for the soul.

If your friend was attacked (by a person, animal, or (in the magic world) beast), what would you do?
It depends on the circumstance, really. I mean if it was a sudden thing and my friend was dying in my arms (frightening image) I think that I would stay with them and talk to them right before they go, but only if I was sure that I couldn’t get help in time. If I could get help in time, then I would. I would do anything in my power to save a friend in need, but I can’t do the impossibe. I’m only human.

What is the one thing you would most like to accomplish?
Already answered this *blushes* Honestly, I ramble too much. I would love to publish a novel. Best-selling novel if that’s possible. Or maybe one that’s just well-liked. That would be fine.

Who is your role model?
Leonardo da Vinci. He was a brilliant man who was way ahead of his time. He created a flying machine 600 years before the first flight. I also love his ideas about philosophy. He believed that there was a higher power, nature. He believed in fate and in love. I think those are great, real things to believe in.

What trait most annoys you about other people?
Annoying people who just don’t get when you want them to leave you alone! If a person is going on and on to you and in your head you’re just chanting, “go away, go away” over and over again. Also, I dislike people who envy their faces more than others.

What do you want to do for a living?
In the year book last year I said that I either wanted to be a graphic designer or a journalist. I vetoed out the journalist idea, but only if I don’t get to write about I what I want and what I believe in. I really like computers and art and I’m good on computers so I think that being a graphic designer would be a wise carreer choice. I would be a writer on the side, of course.

Would you ever use an Unforgivable Curse for any reason?
Hehe. Fun question. Yes, I would. I would frollic around, spreading evil in anyway I can. That would be awesome. *sighs* Oh, how I would love to do that. Like make the preppy popular blonde cheerleader say whatever I want her to say. Oooo the possibilities. I would use it for anything but making people fall in love. Love should be real. Everything else can be havoc-filled!!

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.)
Hufflepuff. They’re all just too NICE! (not meaning to offend anyone) I couldn’t stand all of the fluffiness! i would die. I have a horrible fear of pink, fuzzy things, you know. I know Hufflepuffs aren't all like that and I know a Puff and she is a great person, but out of all the houses I honestly can't see myself as a Hufflepuff. That's just my impression and it IS up to the judges anyway. I don’t know about Gryffindor. Maybe, but I’m not all that brave.

What do you think are your top five abilities or qualities?
1) Intellegence, being down to earth
2) Good w/computers
3) Writing
4) The ability to type really fast
5) The ability to see through peoples clothes! (Yea rite!)
5) The ability to understand people and human nature
