(Bold answers, yea we know it blows, but it's just so much easier

This is my opinion, don't like it? Eat me, I'm delicious.
You're going to die in 10 minutes, what do you do? Honestly, I would put on some good music and have sex with someone. Just a quickie. If I'm going to die, I would much rather die with a killer soundtrack and sex. Of course, in the last seconds, I'd write down something to let my friends and family know I loved them, just because its who I am, but I think the priorities would be music and sex.
You could pick one person to live on an island with. Who are they? Why did you pick them? I think I'd choose, oh god shoot me for saying this, but my ex-boyfriend. He's hilarious and we finally get along. Sure, by the end of being alone on the island I'd probably kill him. Which brings along another good point for bringing him along... If he irritated me too badly and there was no food on the island, I would actually consider cannibalism. But only as a last resort. Oh another reason I'd choose him, besides the fact that he's easy to get along with and funny is because he'd bring his guitar and entertain me for awhile. We're also both on the loner side, so we would be able to go on the other side of the island and not worry about being intruded on when we're trying to get alone time.
What's your favorite emotion? Why do you enjoy feeling it? What makes you feel it? What color is it? My favorite emotion... Okay that one's actually a very hard question for me. I think my favorite emotion is that split second of happiness you get when you succeed. Its different from actual happiness because it doesn't linger, its just there and its better than any other emotion. I feel it when I do something that I'm proud of, but its not pride. I guess this emotion doesn't have a name. If happiness and pride were to have a quickie, this would be the orgasm... (Okay I'm going to shoot myself for typing that one.) As for a color for this emotion, I'm thinking a light purple. I don't know why, but lavender always makes me think of this split second emotion.
You go to a concert. Do you mosh? Enjoy the music? Find a random kid to make out with? It depends on the concert. If I were to go to a mellow concert, I wouldn't be moshing. Or if I went to a really big concert, because I have slight people claustrophobia. However, at small local shows I do sometimes get into the mosh pit, then run out after a few seconds about to have a mild panic attack. On occasion, I do find a random kid to make out with, depending on the mood. But ultimately, if I paid to go to a concert I'm going to enjoy the music. After all, CDs are great, but live is the ultimate way to experience music.
How emo are you? I was emo before emo was cool.
Why are you deliciously emo? I'm deliciously emo because I don't fit the emo stereotype exactly. I don't dress the way that a lot of 'emo' kids do, though I have my moments (especially with my little skull shoes and my bracelets.) I think I'm deliciously emo because while I have emo tendencies, I don't fit perfectly into a box. That makes it all the more delicious because its like an emo kid wrapped up in eclectic clothing.
Have any piercings? Tattoos? Glasses? Hats? Favorite accessory? I have my ears pierced three times in my left ear (cartilidge and two lobe piercings) and two in my right (just the lobe). I also have my naval pierced. No, none of these peircings are guaged and I don't have any facial piercings. That's primarily because I'm going into the criminal justice field and that's a little frowned upon. I have two tattoos, a small ankh on my left hand and a tribal butterfly design on my lower back. Both of these tattoos have deep meaning to me, ranging from an ex-boyfriend to a best friend/anniversary present.) I wear glasses, because I'm half blind without them. They aren't thick glasses because my face shape doesn't support that. As for hats, I barely wear them. I have to for work and that's about it. My favorite accessory would be my bracelets. Yes, they are sex bracelets (cliche and trite I know) but they just seem to go right with my personality. I have several different colors and never take them off.
Hobbies? Surfing the internet, listening to music, working at the campus radio station (DJ during the school year), hanging out with my friends, walking, writing.
What do you look like? (3-5 pictures is fine) I'd give pictures, but I unfortunately don't have a digital camera. So instead, I'll give a description. I'm 5'9 and slender. I have dark brown hair that turns light brown/reddish blonde closer to the bottom due to hair dye. I always wear my hair up in a ponytail, mainly because of work and also because its easier. I have hazel eyes and I used to have an eyeliner addiction (meaning I had to have it constantly) but now I'm more into the plain faced look. When I do wear eyeliner, its very dark and drastic, and used only to draw attention to my eyes.
PROMOTE!!! Paste two direct links to other communites or journal where you have promoted this community because it's so damn freaking awesome we want everyone to know about it.
I'm still slightly unknown around LJ. But I do promise to promote when I join other groups.
Any last words before we all take a taste?
I know that some of my answers seemed a little cliche, and a few also have seemed off the wall, but that's the kind of person I am. I'm not completely cliche, but I am off the wall. I don't try to hide who I am behind the screen with flowery language. This application is just me... Also, yes I know Maria Mena is not emo. But the woman has beautiful music and you asked for my favorite bands, which I interpreted musicians. I only put ten, because that's what you asked for. But in this area, I must give my other two that I'm addicted to currently. Tyler Hilton and Ronnie Day. So, enjoy the application and judge away. I am proud to say that while Taking Back Sunday is mainstream, I do listen to it and will continue listening to them.
(Before you post, it may be a GREAT idea to go back and look at your application. We don't mean to nag you, but we have been known to immediately dislike people if they leave questions blank, misuse an lj-cut, don't post pictures, aren't original enough, or have weak opinion answers. We want to know about you, that's what the application is for. Don't post this unless you are absolutely positive it is ready. May I suggest using the PREVIEW button, it's there for a reason.)
