3. Do you have a most embarrassing moment? So many, but one of the most recent was when I was on call in the hospital, wearing scrubs and one of the surgeons asked me if I was pregnant.  No!  I’m wearing baggy scrubs!  And I’m sleepy, so leave me alone!

4. What is your fondest childhood memory? My sister and I singing, "I’d rather be a hot dog than a fly" to the tune of "I’d rather be a hammer than a nail".  Don’t make me sing it for you! (Cuz I will…)

10. If you could have dinner with anyone (living or not) who would it be? How about President Obama (I love saying that!), my grandma, the Dalai Lama and Mother Theresa… together.  I think it would be an amazing conversation!

12. Someone not related to you that you admire, and why? I admire my friends.  They are truly the most amazing people I’ve ever known… Maybe that’s why I’m friends with them.  They inspire me to be a better person.

1. What time do you go to bed at night? 11:00-12:00 on weeknights, 12:00-1:00 on weekends                                                                                                                                 2. What are your favorite foods? Chocolate, pizza, salad, nachos, non-fishy tasting fish, sweets…mostly things that aren’t so good for me!

3. Do you have a most embarrassing moment? I once tripped on a shopping bag while going up a short flight of stairs in the middle of the mall……ugh!

4. What is your fondest childhood memory? I have lots of memories of playing with my sister…and getting in trouble for things we did!

5. Do you look more like your mom or your dad? I’m not sure I look much like either, but people always tell my mom they know I’m her daughter.

6. The best thing you learned from one/both of your parents? Money is nice, but it’s not the most important thing.  Love and support from family and friends will get you through everything.                                                                                              

7. Name something that really makes you mad? Rude/mean people….and people that chew with their mouths open.   

8. What do you like to do for fun? I’m kind of a homebody, so reading (things that have nothing to do with school- reading b/c you have to is not fun), playing board games, watching movies, and other pretty low-key things.  I also like to catch up with friends and can spend hours talking about nothing.                  

9. What is your all time favorite song? It changes all the time!

10. If you could have dinner with anyone (living or not) who would it be? I don’t think I have an answer for this right now…                                          

11. Someone related to you that you admire, and why? My mom; she is an amazing woman and has gotten our family to where we are now!     

12. Someone not related to you that you admire, and why? Not sure….I have some friends that I admire for their outgoing personalities….          

13. Can you dance or sing? Hahahaha…..um, no.

14. What would people be surprised to learn about you? I seem really stressed by the demands of grad school, but deep down I think I love it!

15. Do you have any regrets? Nothing major.

16. Would you change anything about your appearance, if so what? A couple of things, but I think I’d be most happy if I could just lose a few pounds! I’m working on it! 

17. Any favorite words to live by? "Be the change you wish to see in the world" -Ghandi and my new favorite (b/c of it’s relation to my soon to be career) "Language exerts hidden power, like a moon on the tides." -Rita Mae Brown                                         

18. What do you feel are the best and worst things about your personality? I am very honest….and I’m a procrastinator!  

19. Do you believe in soulmates? I believe I’m marrying mine!

20. Do you believe in ghosts? Not so much…

21. Any bad habits? Did I mention I procrastinate?  Oh and I detest exercising, so I’d say my lack of motivation to exercise is a pretty bad habit, especially when there’s a fabulous wedding dress to show off!

22. Name a moment when you were really proud of yourself? When I got into graduate school (the program is very competitive).  I’ll be most proud when I’m done in May!

23. What scares you? Failing, not just academic related, but on the important things in life, like when your family or friend is really counting on you to make it better.

24. How are you feeling right now? Guilty for procrastinating and not studying for my comprehensive exams like I should be!

25. Who are you interested in getting the answers to this survey back from? I’d love to heare from everyone as well!

1. What time do you go to bed at night? I try to be in bed by 10 on weeknights, tough as it can be, because I get up super early in the mornings.  On weekends, I sometimes stay up later, or sometimes take advantage of an opportunity to go to bed earlier and get more sleep than I would on weeknights.

2. What are your favorite foods? Veggies…and anything involving marshmallow or chocolate.

3. Do you have a most embarrassing moment? I know I do, but I can’t think of it right now.

4. What is your fondest childhood memory? Summer vacations.

5. Do you look more like your mom or your dad? My dad. 

6. The best thing you learned from one/both of your parents? My mom wasn’t able to go to college initially because my parents married young.  When I was seven, she started taking classes, just one or two at a time, while also working full-time.  The year I graduated from high school, she received her bachelor’s degree.  She wasn’t planning on changing jobs or anything; she just did it because it was important to her, and she really, seriously loved doing it.  She taught me that it’s never too late to do something that you really want to do.

7. Name something that really makes you mad? I’ve been dealing with depression and an eating disorder since I was twelve. I am now 22.  I’ve spent ridiculous amounts of time and money in therapy and haven’t yet managed to completely conquer it, although I have gotten better in some ways.  I went from being overweight to underweight to overweight again.  It makes me mad to think that I might have a weight problem forever.  I did nothing to deserve it.  I was a good daughter, a good friend, a good student.  It makes me mad that despite everything I’ve done to try to fix it, nothing works.

8. What do you like to do for fun? I love love love to read, do crossword puzzles, and play Scrabble (I’m a word nerd). I love any opportunity to be with friends. I love movies.  I like to shop…but try not to do it too much!  I also love just randomly walking around the city and people-watching. 

9. What is your all time favorite song? I absolutely can’t choose just one.  High on the list are "Hail Hail" by Pearl Jam, "Into the Void" by Nine Inch Nails, "Nothing Else Matters" by Metallica, "Fell on Black Days" by Soundgarden.  (I am a child of the grunge era, and its music will forever be my favorite)

10. If you could have dinner with anyone (living or not) who would it be? My maternal grandfather, who passed away before I was born, at the age he was before he died.

11. Someone related to you that you admire, and why? My two older brothers…they progressed from less-than-stellar teenage years to become two mature, talented, amazing men. I am so, so proud of them.

12. Someone not related to you that you admire, and why? 

13. Can you dance or sing? I can sing…I was in my middle school, high school and college choruses. But I haven’t been involved in organized singing in a few years, and I think my voice is out of shape.

14. What would people be surprised to learn about you? That try as I might not to show it, I really do care what people think of me sometimes, and it really bothers me when I think someone doesn’t like me.

15. Do you have any regrets?  The only things I regret are ones that were entirely out of my control…so I don’t suppose I can regret them.  Everything that I’ve done in life has led me to a city I love and a man I love, and I wouldn’t want to give up either of those.

16. Would you change anything about your appearance, if so what? I was significantly happier when I weighed less…i would like to get back there.

17. Any favorite words to live by? "Make use of the time you have and don’t sweat the small stuff.  Have a smile and enjoy what you can get out of life."–Nick C., a former high school classmate of mine.  He lost a battle with cancer at the age of 21, but until that point, he had the most beautiful, positive attitude in the world.

18. What do you feel are the best and worst things about your personality? The best is that I am loving, loyal, and a great friend…but I don’t often get the same level of friendship back from people, and when that happens, I get tired of being the person maintaining the friendship, and I let people go.  I have learned to live by the motto, "The only people you need in your life are the ones who need you in theirs."

19. Do you believe in soulmates? Yes, but I do think we have more than one.

20. Do you believe in ghosts? Yes

21. Any bad habits?  I’ve been a nail biter all my life…but I made a resolution to keep my fingernails pretty in 2009, and so far I am succeeding! Wooo! πŸ™‚

22. Name a moment when you were really proud of yourself? When I graduated from high school as valedictorian and actually enjoyed giving the speech (I really dislike public speaking most of the time).

23. What scares you? Tornadoes, even though I’ve never lived in a place where they commonly occur (and I never will).

24. How are you feeling right now? I am happy that the work day is over but wish it were Friday.

25. Who are you interested in getting the answers to this survey back from? everyone!

1. What time do you go to bed at night? Midnight or 1am on weeknights.  About the same on weekend unless I’m having one of my insomnia nights.

4. What is your fondest childhood memory?  Playing in the playhouse my grandpa built.

5. Do you look more like your mom or your dad? My mom.

6. The best thing you learned from one/both of your parents? From my mom, don’t settle for losers.

7. Name something that really makes you mad?  Currently a certain someone I work with and certain family members.

8. What do you like to do for fun? Like Mrs. Leopard, I actually like looking for hard to find things online.  I also love movies, the beach, reading, oh and love baking.

9. What is your all time favorite song?  I can’t pick just one…one of my tops at the moment is "Memories" by The Sequel, but really there are SOOO many others.  My favorites are for sure always changing.

10. If you could have dinner with anyone (living or not) who would it be? Avo (grandpa) πŸ™

11. Someone related to you that you admire, and why? My grandma, she’s one of the toughest ladies I know and she doesn’t take crap from anyone.

12. Someone not related to you that you admire, and why? My husband, he has such drive and passion and it’s so inspiring.  He helps me know that hard work and passion really are what makes your dreams come true.  

13. Can you dance or sing? I can do both, but it’s so bad it might offend you, lol.

14. What would people be surprised to learn about you? I have a people phobia and I love working with kids because I don’t feel it around them.

15. Do you have any regrets? Nope, everything happens for a reason.

16. Would you change anything about your appearance, if so what?  I’d have a natural tan 24/7, I’d be just a little taller.

17. Any favorite words to live by? "I believe that everything happens for a reason.  People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they’re right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together." ~Marilyn Monroe

18. What do you feel are the best and worst things about your personality? I truly and the loyalist of friends and the worst is that I can hold a grudge forever…but we are always growing and improving ourselves so that may change.

19. Do you believe in soulmates? “Some ancient Greeks believed that humans originally had four arms, four legs, and two faces, but just one soul.  Zeus, fearing that these humans were becoming too strong and a risk to the Gods, split each soul into two beings and scattered them, leaving each half to wander the earth searching for its other half – its soul mate.  They believed that when reunited, the complete soul would be as strong as it ever was and a match for anything, even the Gods.”  I think there are many people that can be right for us, but there is just one true soulmate out there and we never know if we actually found it or not…maybe one of those things we find out when we die.

20. Do you believe in ghosts? I think so.

21. Any bad habits? Not always doing dishes before bed.

22. Name a moment when you were really proud of yourself?  I told the CFO at my old job a little over a year ago to take her job and shove and that that I quit effective immediately.  It felt sooooo good and those jerks deserved it for the way they treat their employees!  The best part, not long after MANY people followed my lead.  

23. What scares you? Dying and even worse, my husband dying before me.

24. How are you feeling right now? Tired…it was a REALLY long day!

25. Who are you interested in getting the answers to this survey back from? Everyone!
