tagged me, and I'm supposed to tag 8 people, but I don't usually do tagging. I DO, however, encourage people to post something. I know everyone loves Facebook, but it's nice to actually make/read posts that are more than tiny snippets.
Lots of pillows or just one?
I have just one, and it's a molded memory foam one with two different bump heights. I like it lots.
What kind of books do you read?
See, JUST when I started to get back into reading for fun again... I start grad school. :X So right now I'm reading books related to historic preservation. The books I took out for myself at the library remain in the bag (note to self: you should return those soon).
What are your neighbors like?
We just have one upstairs neighbor, since we live on the bottom flat. Overall, he's fine. He can be a bit of an airhead in some ways, but there haven't been any issues. And if we can figure out how to park 3 cars on the cement slab that used to hold a single garage and keep it working, that's pretty good!
What's the best lesson you've ever learned?
That success in life (love, career, etc.) is not
inherently tied to the amount of effort or moral character of the person. Sure, working hard to achieve a goal is a good thing (and can increase the chances of success), but it doesn't guarantee
you'll reach it. And if someone is having a really rough time in life, it does not automatically mean they are a bad person or did something to "deserve" it.
What's your least favorite chore?
Is there anything in your life you would take back if you could?
I seriously have to just keep in corporis_ossa
's reply, because it is exactly
what I thought before I even read her response: "Nope. Every mistake has shaped me for who I am. If I changed a past event I would be different from who I am today. I proudly wear my scars, both emotional and physical."
Do you prefer your junk food sweet, salty or savory?
Salty and savory are generally related, aren't they? Generally salty/savory, but when I want something sweet, I WANT IT REALLY REALLY REALLY BAD.
What websites do you always visit when you go online?
Livejournal, ravelry, the SDMB and usually Facebook. Oh, and gmail.
What was the last thing you bought?
Dried fruits and nuts from the bulk food store.
Do you get cravings? If so, what do you crave?
Duh, of course I do. But they're completely random and all over the map.
What do you do to change your mood?
I knit, play WoW, play solitaire on my phone (I'm obsessed with it lately), play with the doggie.
What was the last meal you ate?
Dinner; it was Moroccan-spiced spaghetti squash with chickpeas.
Do you want to learn another language?
I think anyone who knows me knows I'd say, "just 'another'?"
Your favorite childhood memory.
I don't know if it's my MOST favorite, since I'm terrible at coming up with "favorites". A nice one, though, was when I woke up late one night because I was sick and miserable; mom sat me in her lap and let me watch the movie she was watching (Jumping Jack Flash
). I was pretty excited since it was a REAL, GROWN UP movie!
Are you a relationship person or a play-the-field kind of person?
I SUPPOSE I have to say I'm a relationship person, since I'm married and all.
What's something that you'd like to say to someone right now?
Okay, once again, I have to keep her answer in. :D "I'd like to tell one of my professors to stop sucking."
What are you looking forward to?
Finishing grad school with some really awesome knowledge, and hopefully opportunities to have a job I love.
Do you prefer boxers/briefs/tighty whities on a guy?
What is your favorite electronic accessory?
iPhone, hands down.
