Look, I’m doing a survey. Next thing you know I’ll be posting entire entries of song lyrics.

— Birthplace: Ceiba, Puerto Rico
— Current Location: Roanoke/Lynchburg, VA
— Eye Color: Hazel
— Hair Color: Golden brown
— Height: 5’4″
— Righty or Lefty: Lefty
— Zodiac Sign: Aquarius/Pisces cusp
— Your heritage: I honestly am not sure. My last name is German, but we can’t trace ourselves over the ocean. Mutt of some kind.
— The shoes you wore today: Black slides
— Your weakness: Procrastination
— Your fears: Being 30 (or, hell, 24) and still living with my parents. Eternally.
— Your perfect pizza: Stuffed spinach from Giordano’s or Geno’s East in Chicago. Locally, pan crust with cheese or Hawaiian.
— Goal you’d like to achieve: Getting a master’s degree someday.
— Your most overused phrase on the internet: seriously, I am such a freak, random, THANKS
— Your thoughts first waking up: Shit, already? followed by “I have to pee.”
— Your best physical feature: My bewitching, utterly irresistible, magical, luminous eyes. Or, just “eyes.”
— Your bedtime: I try for 10:30 but it’s usually more like 12:00
— Pepsi or Coke: Diet Coke
— McDonald’s or Burger King: Burger King, although McD’s has those yummy new salads.
— Adidas or Nike: Adidas
— Lipton Ice Tea or Nestea: Lipton, for sure.
— Chocolate or vanilla: Some of each. Twist!
— Cappuccino or coffee: Either.
— Smoke: No
— Cuss: Hell, yes. Do you READ my entries?
— Sing: Always in the car, often elsewhere too.
— Take a shower: almost every day. Sometimes every other day if I’m being slothful and not doing much.
— Do you think you’ve been in love: Yes
— Want to go to college: Did it once – got a degree but had kind of a fucked-up experience. I’d like to go back for another degree and do it right this time.
— Liked high school: Eh. It was okay, I guess. I do NOT, however, have that desperate urge to relive the past that most of my high school acquaintances seem to have whenever I see them out and about. Live in the now, dudes!
— Want to get married: I guess so, eventually.
— Believe in yourself: Yeah, sometimes. What a lame question. Do I own any Successories? Fuck, no.
— Get motion sickness: Yes, if I read in the car, and when planes land. I’m fine at takeoff and mostly fine in the air; it’s the landing that socks me one.
— Think you’re attractive: I have my moments.
— Think you’re a health freak: HA! Surely you are kidding.
— Get along with your parents: Most of the time. Sometimes it’s necessary for me to just shut my mouth and not disagree in order for it to work, though.
— Like thunderstorms: I love them when I don’t have to drive in them.
— Play an instrument: I used to play the flute, although I haven’t touched it in years.
In the past month…

— Eaten sushi: Nope.
