Hi. I'm trying to get sorted, but I don't really know what I'm doing. I answered the questions, so I hope I’m posting my answers to the right place.

I can't wait to be sorted! :)


If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be?
Well, to me the answer to this question is obvious: world peace. But of course, how to achieve world peace isn’t nearly as obvious, or it would have happened by now. But if I had the ability to change only one thing about the world, that would be it.

What makes a person respectable?
Honesty, integrity, loyalty.

What do you look for in a friend?
A true friend is someone I can trust completely, is there for me when I need them, enjoys my company, enjoys doing the same things I enjoy doing, and would never intentionally hurt me or betray me.

What are your hobbies?
Music, art, decorating, reading, XM Radio, Harry Potter.
.
Have or would you give time and money to a charity?
Yes.

What is the one thing you would most like to accomplish?
At this point, I’d like to get married...but only if I truly love the person. I can’t imagine marrying someone for money, or status, or any reason other than love. Sometimes I worry that I’ll never get married, but I’d rather never get married than marry someone I don’t love.

Speaking of love, I was totally in love with Sirius Black by the time I finished reading Prisoner of Azkaban. I'd marry Sirius in a heartbeat, but unfortunately a) he's a fictional character, and b) he's no longer with us. Damn Bellatrix Lestrange.

Who is your role model?
My dad. He’s intelligent, honorable, talented, honest, kind, hard-working, generous, faithful, and always there when I need a shoulder to cry on. He loves his family, and he always put the needs of his family ahead of his own needs. I’m proud to have such a wonderful man as my father.

What trait most annoys you about other people?
I hate conceited people who think they’re too good for you, the ones who pretend they don’t see you until you finally walk right up to them and look them in the eye and say hello, and then they go “Oh, HI!” as if they hadn’t noticed you before. It’s not about whether or not they like you; it’s about basic politeness. If you know someone, you should acknowledge their existence, regardless of whether or not you like them. People who pretend not to see you are totally full of shit.

What do you want to do for a living?
Right now I’m unemployed, so I’d do just about anything…but ideally, I’d like to do something creative like interior design. Even more ideally, I’d like to be my own boss.

If your friend was attacked (by a person, animal, or (in the magic world) beast), what would you do?
Whatever I have to do to save their life.

Would you ever use an Unforgivable Curse for any reason?
I don’t think so. No. I can’t think of anything that would justify using an Unforgivable Curse. So my answer to this question is no. Absolutely not.

What do you think are your top five abilities or qualities?
1. loyal
2. kind
3. generous
4. helpful
5. honest

What do you think are your top five weaknesses or worst qualities?
1. too trusting
2. not assertive enough
3. unmotivated
4. depressed
5. tendency to make the wrong choices

Define in your own words the following key traits:

Courage:
Willing to stand up for what you believe in, no matter what the cost.

Loyalty:
Remaining faithful to a person or cause, no matter what the cost.

Intelligence:
Knowledge of what’s going on in the world around you, plus a strong opinion about it, either good or bad.

Ambition:
Passion, drive, determination to succeed at a particular goal, willingness to work toward that goal.

Name:
Sandy Erickson

Age:
35.
Yes, that's right: 35. Most people think I'm younger, because I have purple hair and I only weigh 110 pounds and I'm an XM Radio snob and I'm obsessed with the HP books. I'm probably the oldest person here, but I'm living proof that the HP books are absolutely NOT just for kids. I don't watch TV at all, I hardly ever watch movies, I just read books. Nowadays I mostly read best-selling fiction, but I read all the classics back in high school and college. I have a degree in English Literature, and I can honestly say that the HP books are some of the best books I've ever read. They're absolutely brilliant.
I haven't seen any of the HP movies and I probably never will, because they'll most likely just piss me off.

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.)
Slytherin, because the people in Slytherin all seem to have the very qualities I most despise in people: arrogance, self-importance, malice, and spite.

Where did you find out about us?
I’ve been on the LiveJournal Harry Potter user group for a while, and I recently got an invitation to join a group called Hogwartsishome, and from there I was linked to you.
