questions from negativeneve

1) Deep down in your heart, do you think you'll ever end up with a "nice, jewish boy?" And if you don't end up with someone jewish, what happens if they don't want to convert (for whatever reason)?
I don't think I will. There have been many times that I've said "I will never date anyone non-Jewish again!" and it never really works for me. I'm not really sure how I feel about conversion. I think happiness is more important.

2) Ten years ago, you must have imagined where you would be now. What did you imagine? What do you imagine ten years from now? I never would have thought I'd have dropped out of college. I wanted to be a band director, and that's not really a goal anymore, either. Ten years from now I see myself hopefully either out of or almost out of a masters or Ph D program.. but If I'm not, that's fine too. I'd like atleast one kid or plans to have one kid by the time I'm 31.

3) You're given an ultimatum: Either you can erase your whole relationship with Rob, the good and the bad, from history or if you choose not to do that, you can re-live it again but not be able to change anything (not even what you ate for dinner). Which would you choose?
That is a really. really really rough question. Luckily, it's impossible to do either one of those things with the technology available to us now, because I wouldn't want to do either. I learned an awful lot during my relationship with Rob, and I wisened with both our relationship and our breakup. I think it was a necessary step for me to be where I am now, and I wouldn't want to erase it. BUT... I think I would want to relive everything even less. Particularly our break-up.

4) Everyone loves and hates things about themselves. What do you love and hate about yourself?
I hate that I'm not as disciplined as I should be. With dieting, with schoolwork, with not pressing the snooze button a dozen times-- I just wish I had more discipline in myself. I also don't like how I tend to spiral downwards and make things worse when things aren't working out, particularly if it was my own fault in the first place. As for things I love about myself.. I think I want to help all people, no matter what. I hope that's a good thing, but we'll see. I also have fantastic eyebrows.

5) What was the best and worst day of your life?
You know the answer to that one, I've even described it as such-- the day that Rob and I broke up-- it's both. Going beyond that, I really enjoyed the day of my Bat-Mitzvah. I think the Rob-breakup still wins for worst.

(no subject)

Ron bought me a TransFlash card and reader so that I can now listen to mp3s straight from my phone-- it's good quality, too :) So now I have a gig of music on my phone, and it an act as an ipod, with headphones and all.

My phone doesn't have a name. It needs one. Suggestions?

I tutor at 5. Blarg.
