2. I will respond by asking you five questions. I get to pick the questions.
3. You will update your LJ with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.
1) Where do you see yourself in five years? Unfortunately where I see myself and where I would like to be are two different things. I would LIKE to be working on my masters or Ph. D. by that point, perhaps in Library Science. I don't think I'll be married (I'm going to make damn sure I'm right the next time I go through all of that), but perhaps in a serious relationship with a 'nice Jewish boy.' If not working on my degrees, I see myself perhaps running for a local office (as I'll be 25 at that point).
2) How did the eyebrow obsession start? Wow, I've been asked this a lot lately. It gradually began. I've always noticed people's eyebrows as one of the first things when I met them. The jumpstart of the obsession was the realization that eyebrows are the one thing that someone can change about themselves easily. It doesn't make sense to NOT have wonderful eyebrows, because they can really work with a person's face and make them look much better, and it's so easy to do. People who complain about their appearance but don't try to do anything to fix it are on my "do you hate yourself?" list.
3) If you could travel anywhere, where would you go? That's a very, very, very hard question for me. As a Jew, I'm inclined to say Israel. And I probably would go there, given my choice of destinations, but only because I think it's what I am supposed to do, and because if I only get one trip in my lifetime, I'd want that to be it. But more than wanting to see Israel, I would love to go to Rome. Florence. Venice. Athens. Sparta. Crete. The ancient ruins in those places hold much more meaning for me as a Classicist than Masada or the Western Wall would hold for me as a Jew.. or so I think now. When I actually am standing in front of something that my ancestors sacrificed themselves on... well, we'll see.
4) What clique were you in during high school? Clique? You could put me with the Band nerds, or the Latin nerds, or the general gifted group, or the Narc goody-two-shoes clique. I didn't really have one "clique." I had great friends, but we were all so different.. and I knew them from all different areas of my life... I had my friends in band, my friends in Latin... it really depended where I was at the time.
5) If you could meet any celebrity, who would you choose? I have miles of respect for Bill Clinton... but I think it'd have to be J.K. Rowling. Then I could drug her, perhaps with Veritaserum, and make her tell me the answers to my (literal) pages and pages of questions about Harry Potter.
If you could change one thing about your high school experience, what would it be?
I would have learned how to study, and I would have dated more.
What is the one thing that you are looking forward to in your future?
Americorps starting. That is the one thing that I really would like right now.
Has your life gone as you had planned?
Of course not. If it had, I would be a librarian, beautician, astronaut, race car driver, teacher, president, and lots of other things. Life doesn't always go as you plan. So I decided not to plan anymore.
Okay, let's say you and I were out shopping and I said I'd get you anything you wanted within the mall, what would you get? Oh, and we're shopping at the Mall of America, so the stores are to numerous to name.
I've never been there, but I'll assume there's atleast one place that sells some awesome massage chairs.
If you had a child right now, what would you name it?
wow. Well, it would depend on who the father was. I wouldn't get total say. But lets say it was immaculate conception? I've always loved the name Andrew. Maybe Andrew Ethan.
Are you close to your parents, can you tell them anything?
I'm fairly close to my mom, but I can't tell her everything. I'm not very close to my dad.
What was/is your first car?
Sally, a champagne colored 98 Ford Contour. I totaled her after two months. RIP.
List/name a state(s) you have not yet visited, but would love to.
The state of absolute happiness.
Did you play sports in High School? If so, which one(s).
Swim team for a little while, marching band all four years.
Who were you in High School? Nerd, jock, outcast, popular..etc. Were you happy with who you were?
Read my interview question.
Are you/will you attend your 10 year class reunion?
If you went to college what did you graduate with? Or what is your current major.
I'll go back next year, and I'll graduate with.. a degree, silly! thats what graduating means! In what, I have no idea
Will you go back to further your education? In what?
Where did you attend college? Did you enjoy your time there? Where did you really want to go? ;)
University of Florida, and it was my number 1 choice.
What time do you normally hit the sack? Wake up?
it changes every day.
Do you have any pets? What are their names?
Padfoot the muppety fraggly dog is the only one that's MINE, but my little sister also has a dog, Kelev.
Name a pet you've always wanted but your parents said you could never have.
I'm with Johnny. I've always wanted a pygmy goat. And of course I asked for a pony when I was younger.
Siblings--do you have them, and what are their names and ages?
Matthew, 28, Vivi, 25, Deborah, 12
Favorite thing to do that you almost never get to do.
jump on trampolines.
Best place to eat in your town--in your opinion.
California Chicken Grill... for the amazing Tally atmosphere.
Do you have a cell phone? What is your current ringer?
Yes. The ringer is different for each person. My standard (for people not in my phone, or people I haven't set a ringer for) is Philosophy by Ben Folds Five. Indira's is "That's what friends are for," Sara's is "Blue Moon," My mom's is "Hava Nagila," Deborah's is "American Idiot." The list goes on and on.
Have you seen Napoleon Dynamite? Did you like it and did you vote for Pedro?
Haven't seen it. n/a
