This or That

Optimistic or Pessimistic: Pessimistic.

Personal

Hopes, dreams, wishes for the present and future:
My biggest dream is to get a book published. Aside from that, I want to go back to school and get a Bachelor's degree, though I'm not entirely certain in what yet. Right now I'm thinking about going into History, with a Secondary Education Liscensure. I'd also like to get a job that pays descent.

What is your ultimate dream to achieve?:
To be a published author or to own a small bookstore. I'd prefer the author gig, but the idea of owning my own bookstore is pretty epic all by itself.

What is the greatest lesson you have learned?:
Sometimes you have to take leaps and bounds that don't seem logically sound, leaving you to suffer those consequences later but with the satisfaction that you still did the right thing.

Something you admire/love/respect:
The ability to be comfortable in your own skin.

Something you detest greatly:
Idiocy. I have no patience for it and, I'll admit, I'm a pretty big elitist when it comes to who I think is being stupid at any given time. What can I say? It's possibly a flaw of mine, but I don't care enough to change it.

If you could have one "supernatural" power, what would it be?:
Shape-shifting.

Where do you feel most at home?:
Outside, underneath the Willow tree in our back yard.

Do you have any creative talents?:
Writing and I must be pretty good at the art thing, since I did get accepted into art school-though I had to drop out due to finances.

Where is your favourite place to be, and why?
I have two. The first is this really huge used bookstore downtown, because I can get lost in the stacks and feel like I'll never be found. The second is the computer room, in front of my trusty computer, because I often feel like everything I do is connected to it so being near that makes my activities seem more real. Which is kind of weird, but whatever.

Et cetera
