If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be? I think it would probably be to eliminate stereotypes. I wouldn't want to make everyone get along, because that would be boring and just plain sickening. But it would be nice to know that people wouldn't name you a prep if you had nice clothes and perfect hair, or a druggie if you wear black and have a mohawk. It would also be nice to see people hanging out with people you wouldn't expect them to like. Stereotypes judge people for you, you worry about not wanting to be seen with that type of person, and they just look like someone I wouldn't hang out with. It limits who could have a great impact on your life.
What makes a person respectable? Respecting others is very important. Who wants to respect someone that doesn't respect you? Being honest, to a point. Not horribly insulting honest, but knows what needs to be said. However, there's something about...I hate to use this example, but say, Regina from Mean Girls. She is a liar and the person you love to hate, but I certainly would respect someone like that because, well, she oozes confidence and she is so good at planning evil plots. She knows she can get her way and she takes advantage of that. Not doing drugs. I have this major issue with people who do drugs.

What do you look for in a friend? People who accept me as I am, better yet, encourage me as I am. If I can't be myself around them, WHY would I want to hang out with them? And someone I can trust. Someone who will both listen and talk. It's so boring to hang out with people who do one but not the other. One of my friends who...well, I can't stop being friends with, because she's addicting and I can have fun with her, and I've known her most of my life, I can't consider her a good friend. We hang out a lot, but we always get into fights, and she lies often, and she doesn't listen to me half the time. It's horrible, and I often hang up on her when she won't listen on the phone. I also don't like people who would embarass me, as embarassment hurts. I'm not embarassed by the way people act, as I act strange a lot, but there are a few things that I would hide in my closet for a while about.

What are your hobbies? I love to read. I have always loved to read, there's no more to it. Being online. Yes, yes, I know everyone loves to be online, but I have random obsessions, my current ones being icon making and joining communities. I love to watch movies and don't do enough of that. Music is important to me, as is going places and being strange with friends. I love to write, but don't do nearly enough, because I lose inspiration and time.

Have or would you give time and money to a charity? Actually, I don't know if I've done much of either...I know I've never given my time, because I'm a rather selfish person and I love my time for me. I hate spending time doing things I don't want to do, it's worse than losing money to me. I have donated money, but very very little. I am going to try to donate more as I get older, but I don't easily donate things. It's hard for me to relate to some of the things, so I feel like they don't need much help or something like that, and I don't donate.

What is the one thing you would most like to accomplish? Blah. I never have one thing for anything. I honestly don't know. I mean, there's the obvious things, but those wouldn't be either interesting or completely honest. I would like to finish school, but it's definitely not something I would like most, because I could probably make it for a while without a full education and I know my parents would let me live here and stuff. But perhaps it would be to be more outgoing. I'm not completely shy, when I'm with good friends I let loose. Even in public. But when I'm with my family I'm just not very outgoing. When I'm alone in class with no friends, I don't say much. And even at a party with good friends, if there's people there I don't know I'm pretty quiet.

Who is your role model? I don't think I could have a role model. I admire things from people, but to concentrate on one person in particular wouldn't be something I would do, because there's normally something about someone that I really don't like. But people I do admire, my friends, because they are fun and well, my friends. Gwen Stefani--she is so original and doesn't care and had the courage to make a solo album and be in a movie, but she didn't take a huge role, just a small one, which is good because if it was terrible it wouldn't ruin the movie! Amy Lee, because she is one of the few people that are famous that aren't the stereotypical, skinny, scantily clad, vibrant colour-wearing Hollywood people. She doesn't want to be one. There's nothing wrong with them, but they can get pretty annoying. Openly gay people, because they are open about it [wow, I'm not obvious at all....pfft], even though they know they will be discriminated against. And besides, they're so cute! Haha. Erm...Mineko Iwasaki. She was a geisha and has an autobiography, Geisha, a Life that I loved. And she did so many strong things, but still was human at the same time.

What trait most annoys you about other people? Chat speak. Why not take the time to learn how to type normally, it will be much more useful and EASY TO READ. Haha. When people ignore me. I am ignored. A LOT. It really makes me feel like punching them, especially when I'm trying to say something I feel strongly about, because if they ignore me it makes me feel less important and like an idiot. When people won't leave me alone about something!! Two examples. One--if I look depressed or AM depressed and obviously don't want to talk about it, yet they won't let me be. Or the other example--one time, a friend-not a close friend, more of an aquaintence,-asked me about something that I would rather not answer. It wasn't anything personal, just something disgusting that you don't talk about to people that you aren't good friends with, or just don't talk about at all. And she wouldn't leave me alone about it. I don't like being left in the dark about things either, but this was something that would be very embarassing to talk about to anyone, let alone someone I barely know. Hmm...and I think that's it for that question.

What do you want to do for a living? I don't know. I have ideas, but I really am not sure, and I have never been. I like designing. I think that it would be fun to be a fashion designer, but that's too broad, because stuff I made would never be bought. Haha, so I think a theatrical costume designer. Where people would HAVE to listen to me. Maybe an interior designer, but I've calmed down a lot about this, so probably not. And recently, a graphics designer. Like...Photoshop and stuff. I have no idea what ou would call one, or what I would do, but I love Photoshop and to be able to work with it would be teh awesome.

If your friend was attacked (by a person, animal, or (in the magic world) beast), what would you do? Depends. If it was something they could fight off on their own, I would probably stand there as backup. If it was something huge and scary that I know I couldn't fight off, well, I would love to say that I would be there for them, but if it was someone that I don't consider a good friend, then I would probably chicken out and pretend not to have seen them. Because I am a coward. Danger seems so fun, and I love to imagine it and write about it, but when faced with it, I just crack.

Would you ever use an Unforgivable Curse for any reason? YES. Not for fun on a random person. But if the person has done something to me and I'm feeling mean, then I wouldn't put myself past it. I have a tendency to hold grudges, and I don't easily forget anything. The one time I would surely perform one on someone is if they were a terrible person to me or one of my friends. Crazy how I would kill/torture someone if they attacked a friend, yet I would have to think about saving a friend from a monster.

What do you think are your top five abilities or qualities? This is hard...well, I listen to people. That's probably because I hate not being listened to, so I could relate and anyway, I find the weirdest things interesting. I can be very passionate about things I love when I want to be. That's two...Hmm. For the most part I can remain cool and collected under pressure. I don't think people are stupid if they do something weird. That's four....and erm....uh....*thinks*.....I can read pretty fast! Haha, pathetic, I know. But I can't think of good things about myself. That shows my level of self-love. No wait, forget the reading part! I have a very good memory when it doesn't come to history/test taking stuff. I know a lot of people's names, schedules, old schedules, traits, secrets, everything. Haha.

What do you think are your top five weaknesses or worst qualities? I have a terrible temper. I don't think anyone has actually seen it at it's worst, because I go in my room and break things. It causes me to hold grudges. I don't forget much. Number two....I'm too shy, I have talked about that though. Haha. Number three, I can worry too much about getting into trouble. That's calmed down a LOT over the years, but I still have a big pocket of guilt that likes to make my tummy hurt. I'm a procrastinator. Oh my gosh, am I a procrastinator. I guess I'm kind of good at cramming, but still. For instance, I have this semi-big project due tomorrow and I just started on it tonight. At five or so. And I have atrocious luck. Seriously, bad things always happen to me. If I were to sneak into a movie, it would be the one day they decided to check ticket stubs. Everything like that happens to me.

Define in your own words the following key traits:
Courage: Being brave, but still admitting your fears.
Loyalty: Being truthful with your friends/partner/family.
Intelligence: Having common sense, not just being book smart. It's great that you know who Merlin was, but that won't do you good if you don't know how to perfom Lumos in a dark room.
Ambition: Wanting something and doing something about it.

Name: Jennifer
Age: 14
What house do you think DOESN'T fit you? I would have to say Hufflepuff, because although I respect them a lot, I just wouldn't fit in. As I said, I have a bad temper and hold grudges, and something about that just doesn't scream Hufflepuff, ye know?
Where did you find out about us? Um...I was just clicking on people I found in other communities, I can't remember.
