Kill Bill Vol. 2 wasn't nominated for an Oscar!? *Puts the hat on*

*Edited for "Which House do you think doesn't fit you?" question*

If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be?
I’m totally serious when I say that I would make it so that magic existed. If magic existed I would take the entire spring semester off of school and fly away on my broomstick to see the world and appreciate every little piece of beautiful undeveloped land.

That’d be nice…

If you want a “real” answer then I suppose I would make it so that people actually took action when they were educated about an important world issue. Like knowledge about sexually transmitted disease, effects of alcoholism, tobacco, drug abuse, global warming, abusing children, tolerance for people different than us, spaying and neutering your pets…wearing your seatbelt! We can prevent so much unnecessary sadness if we just took action to make changes.

What makes a person respectable?
There are so many things that make a person respectable. I can’t choose just one, so to give you a better sense of my personality, I’ll name many…

To me, being an incredibly talented performer of acting, music, dance etc. is respectable. Being an awesome director of theatrical plays and being able to captivate a live audience is respectable. Having an informed opinion is respectable. Breaking out of your “type” and showing the world that you’re are much more than anyone ever expected is respectable. Last but not least, I respect my parents. They didn’t go to college, but they have given everything they have so that their kids could grow up in a nice neighborhood and go to college and pursue our dreams of a happy future. To me, being able to swallow your pride, work hard, and give your life to someone else… is respectable.

What do you look for in a friend?
“There are some things you can’t share without ending up liking each other.” This is the quote that happens at the end of the ‘troll’ incident when Hermione officially becomes part of the trio. I like this quote because my friends tend to just happen. More often than not, my friends are very different than me and I enjoy the fact that we attract despite (or because of) our differences.

What are your hobbies?
Halloween is my favorite holiday, so naturally preparing for Halloween is one of my favorite hobbies. Each year I “haunt” my house and that alone takes a great deal of preparation and design. It’s a night dedicated to cutting loose and finding adventure and I always take advantage of it. I also like to read all sorts of books and plays. You can often find me in the children’s section of a library or bookstore. Sometimes I think kids are too young to fully appreciate the literature that was written for them! There are emotions that I haven’t felt in a long time that simple sentences in kid’s books can draw out. I also like finding the political undertones. I enjoy going to the theatre to see a good play with interesting characters. I also like to draw comics and sketch people, characters, places, things, ideas etc…I spend a great deal of time imagining. Lately, I’ve also been swimming and working out at the gym for recreation and fitness.

Have or would you give time and money to a charity?
Besides giving 20 dollars out of my pocket once, I haven’t given much so far, but I would definitely donate money.

What is the one thing you would most like to accomplish?
Win an academy award! Develop insanely huge muscles! Okay really…

One thing that stands out is… I would like to become the founder, producer, manager and director of the first Los Angeles Halloween Parade. There are Christmas Parades, Thanksgiving Parades, Independence Day Parades etc. but so few Halloween Parades! I hope this would be a family friendly activity that would give people something else to do than get wasted at a party on Halloween night. I would look for talent from all around the world including street performers, puppeteers, actors, dancers, float designers, costumers, pyro-technicians etc. I have so many ideas in my head about and I just can’t wait to see if I will ever undertake this task. It’s my hope that this will become an annual thing that will live on even after I’m dead.

Who is your role model?
Although it may sound silly, my role models are the alter-egos of super heroes, particularly Peter Parker (Spiderman) and “Shoe Shine Boy” (Underdog.) Outwardly, the world sees these fellows as nice guys who always finish last. They are humble and don’t seem to ask for much in life. But inside there is some kind of super force that I like to believe I have. Not super strength or the ability to fly, but talent, drive, and the desire to do what’s right for myself and others.

What trait most annoys you about other people?
It annoys me when people take things too literally. I don’t think the Bible, the Koran, or any other religious book should be taken word for word. The bible’s symbolism should inspire, not limit people to live by its every rule in fear of going to hell. I think that under the title of “Christian Fundamentalist” a person can be a racist, a fascist, be opposed to gay marriage, and be closed minded in general because of their literal interpretation of the bible which leaves no room for compromise. Those people become unreasonable and frankly, annoy the hell out of me. Some people ask, “How is evolution possible if the earth was made in 6 days?” I say, “Use your imagination!”

What do you want to do for a living?
I want to become an actor because I will always love acting and I like to think I’m good at it. There are stories out there in books and plays that I need to share and acting is how I wish to share them. But my instinct also tells me that acting isn’t the only thing I’m good at. I’m a good fair leader and I want to exercise that skill by managing some kind of big project like maybe becoming one of the heads of the organizing committee for the Olympic Games or some really huge project like that.

If your friend was attacked (by a person, animal, or (in the magic world) beast), what would you do?
I would grab a video camera so I could submit the tape to “When Rabid Things Attack.” Just kidding… I would cheer on my friend and throw him some brass knuckles! Just kidding again… I would like to think I’d save the day by pulling some heroic stunt, but the truth is…I don’t know what I’d do, but I certainly wouldn’t stand back and do nothing…that’s for sure!!!

Would you ever use an Unforgivable Curse for any reason?
My first reaction to this question was “Yes, if I needed to.” But now that I’ve given it more thought my answer is “No.” I’ll use Dumbledore as an example here. He has probably been in numerous battles, but to my knowledge, he has never used an unforgivable curse. If I had the luxury of a magic wand, why would I need to use an unforgivable curse when I could conjure up rope or use a stunning spell to stop my enemy? I certainly don’t enjoy watching others in pain, and I don’t think I would ever really mean to torture or kill someone. The possible exception would be the Avada Kedavra curse because just like the basement scene in “Silence of the Lambs” where Clarice is being stalked in the dark by a serial killer, there may be some circumstance where it’s absolutely necessary.

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

1. Leadership; I pride myself in my ability to lead a group of people to a goal or a successful finished product.
2. Initiative; I’m always good at igniting the spark that gets things going particularly in the workplace.
3. Charm; I don’t mean to sound big-headed, but charm is something I can turn on when I need it, which especially helps when I’m out on auditions.
4. Acting ability; Again, I don’t mean to sound big-headed but I love to act. It doesn’t matter to me what other people say…what matters is that I’m consistently satisfied, even surprised by my own performances.
5. Humor; I think I’m funny and I love that about myself.

What do you think are your top five weaknesses or worst qualities?
1. Procrastination; You might be thinking…how can I have initiative when I’m a procrastinator? Well I take initiative with things I’m passionate about, and procrastinate with things like… math homework.
2. Distraction; When I’m studying, I get distracted easily and I’m easily whisked away to lunch by friends, when I should be in class.
3. Not trusting of others; I don’t trust new people I meet easily. Maybe that’s why it takes me a while to make a new friend.
4. Not honest to my friends; I often sugar-coat things I’m depressed or angry about when I’m talking to my friends.
5. Shyness; my shyness never works in my favor and I wish I were more outgoing.

Define in your own words the following key traits:
Courage: Courage is generating the power to do something one would not be readily willing to do, and then doing it.

Loyalty: Having an obligation to the person who scratched your back.

Intelligence: Having an abundance of stimulated brain cells with which one uses to acquire desired knowledge.

Ambition: The use of action to see a desired goal through to the end, despite all obstacles.

What house do you think DOESN'T fit you? Originally I said, "Ravenclaw isn't my tribe" but since I've gotten a lot of Ravenclaw votes, I'm seeing the claw qualities in me as well as in other people that I totaly respect. Like I said before...all houses are awesome!
