What race are you?
What is your favorite animal? And why?
I love giraffes! Their just so unique from anything else out there and I love their spots. I want to ride one someday.
What’s your favorite color? And why?
Mmmm, I know it sounds girly but it’s pink. I dunno why, it’s pretty and goes with a lot of stuff.
What’s your favorite season, and why?
I would have to say Summer. It’s the time of no school and super warm weather. I love love love to swim, and we have a pool at home that I use almost every day in the Summertime.
What did you want to be when you grew up and why?
Well I guess I’m still growing up, technically. But what I’ve always been fascinated with is engineering, especially robotics. Creating something with my own hands and then giving it intelligence to react and think on it’s own. Who wouldn’t find that interesting?!
What would you dress up for halloween?
I dress up every year, even though I don’t go out every year. But I know last year I was Rosie the Riveter. She’s one of my role models.
Do you have a favorite movie? Why?
Oh! I love Edward Scissorhands! Such a cute freaking movie!
Favorite kind of music? Why?
Rock mostly. I don’t know why, it just makes you wanna dance and rock out. Gets my spirits up.
Where did you grow up and did you like it?
I grew up in New York, but with the job my dad has, we relocate a lot. I did like it, made a lot of friends, but then we had to move so quickly. Mayfield is just one of many cities we’ve been to. Much different than New York.
What was your first job?
I’ve babysat a couple times, does that count?
How do you feel about kids?
They’re okay, I guess.
*laughs* Wayyy down the road.
What is your proudest accomplishment? Why were you proud?
Acing a really tough Chemistry test. Teacher is really strict and hard to read their writing, but I did. I was the only one who got an A. Wouldn’t you be proud of that?
Anything you’ve done that you are ashamed of? Why?
I was at my grandmas house once, and she made this casserole that I couldn’t begin to tell you what was in it, but she was so proud of it. To be polite, I tried a bite, and I almost threw up. When she wasn’t looking, I fed pretty much all of it to her dog Benny. I thought I got away with it, but turns out, the dog didn’t like it either and threw it up too. Being as I was the only kid there, I was blamed. The look on my grandmas face though… I felt horrible.
Any talents or skills that you can boast about?
I can whistle pretty well. Like a bird. Never realized it until a couple years ago and people would compliment how good it was.
If you could go anywhere in the world, where you go? Why?
Anywhere with a beach. I love sunshine and the sand on bare feet. Dad was stationed in Hawaii for about 6 months and I was at the ocean almost everyday.
How do you want to die, if you could choose.
Uhhhh… I don’t want to die. Is that an option?
What’s your stance on abortion?
I’ll admit, I don’t know much about the process, but it’s a woman’s body. She should be able to do what she wants with it.
What are some bad habits that you have?
I like to chew on pens and pencils when I’m studying. I’ve gone through so many packs of pens. Even had a couple explode in my mouth before. Nasty stuff.
What is your ideal life partner traits? And what orientation do you prefer?
Life partner? Geez, you know I’m only 14 right? And to be honest, I don’t really have a preference. I am attracted to attractive people. Girl or guy. If they rub me the right way, who knows?
On a scale of 1 – 10, what is your self confidence level?
Hmmm, I would say a 6?
What’s your favorite food? Why?
I love pizza. Because, there are so many things you can put on pizzas! Can make them healthy or as unhealthy as you want. And cheese. You can put so much cheese on it. Ug, I’m hungry now…
Have you ever done anything illegal? What was it?
If you could have 3 wishes granted right now, what would they be?
Um, be done with school, be able to live on my own, win the lottery in order to achieve the other two wishes. And I don’t mean quit school, I mean, just have the knowledge and everything to have a masters in Engineering and start doing things already!
