1. Where's your favorite place you've traveled as a part of ADF and why?

Austria, hands down. I wish more people could have gone. It was simply amazing.

2. Religion - What's the defining point of religion for you (in other words, why are you religious)?

Because it is right. There's no other way to explain it.

3. Family - Is your brother still going to Greece?

I hope so. I think he'd really like it. red_sput, what do you think?

4. Love - What is love (not necessarily in the romantic sense)?

It is nothing uncommon.

Unless you do it right.

5. Sex - If you never had sex again, what would you miss the most?

I'm not sure I'm able to answer that question with authority.

6. Hobbies - What hobby do you most miss when you're bogged down with work?

ADF, I think.

7. Pets - How's the princessy cat behaving these days?

Still a brat, but a brat I love. :)

8. Friendship - For someone to be your friend, what characteristics do they need to have?

There's no set criteria. I'm very flexible about my friends.

9. Literature - What's a book that everyone should read, IYHO?

The Principia Discordia, or How I Found the Goddess and What I Did to Her When I Found Her.

10. Movies - What's the best movie you've seen in the last 12 months (in or out of the theater)?

I honestly could not tell you. Movies are, in my mind, mostly forgettable experiences.

11. Home town - Where do you consider home, and why?

Columbus, OH. It's where I've been for nearly a decade, and it's where most of my friends are. My job and the house I own are here. I'm content.

12. Physical Appearance - What do you especially like about your appearance?

Not as much as it appears I like. :) Seriously, I like a lot of things about the way I look, but I could always do better.

13. Volunteer Work - What sort of volunteer work do you especially dislike doing, but you'd still do it because of It's Being The Right Thing To Do?

I dislike talking to people and calling them on the phone, but if there's a feeling of things being the Right ThingTM then I'll do it anyway.

14. Life Goals - Where do you see yourself professionally and personally in ten years?

I generally don't. This question was kind answered above, but I don't plan like that for the future, with goals and such. I just have ideas of what would be nice.

15. The World - If you were the earth, would you give people spankings for polluting?

She already does. They're just things like hurricanes and earthquakes and volcanos. (Which, I should stress, does not indicate that I think that the people on the receiving end of those "deserve" them in any way. But I do think that nature reacts to us.)

I didn't look at anyone's questions before conceptualizing my own. I appreciate you answering mine, though :-)

I don't like calling or talking to most people on the phone, but I love chatting with maebaby1978 and fred_smith on the phone (probably because they both live thousands of miles away from me, and thus seeing them is unlikely).

I'll probably use Skype when I am at school next year. I've decided to implement what I learned last time- Don't Let Yourself Get So Lonely. So, I'll be taking preemtive action in a few different ways ;-)

Randomly, I have 1/3 of the necessary work for tonight done, and 1/2 of what I can actually do right now done :-)

And I get the being religious because it's right thing.

1. Travel - Is travel an adventure, or a pain?
Always an adventure.

2. Religion - Are religion and ancestry intimately tied to you?
No. Not at all, really. I can see myself honoring the ancestors no matter what my religion is - but in different ways.

3. Family - How does your family influence the way you live your life?
I have some issues with men that partly stem from familial relationships. Also, I don't know that I entirely trust people to believe me when it comes to my health, because my parents have repeatedly shown that they think I'm full of garbage relating to that (and each time, wow, I've been right). This is programming that I have been working on getting past.

Negative stuff aside, I have a drive for success and refusal to give up that I learned at home. Both have brought me where I am today, which is loads better off than I'd have been without it. I am most excited in life by the opportunity to learn something academically, which I got from my time with my father as a child. Most importantly, feeling like I wasn't as important as my other siblings growing up led to me to develop a pattern of trying to prove myself in spectacular ways. Sometimes I've fallen because of it, but each time I've learned something intrinsic to help myself and my chances of success in the future.

So, yeah, as you can tell, my family has influenced my life. It might seem to people who know some of the story that it's all been negative - but I am truly leading a fantastic life - and all because I refuse to settle for mediocrity and the same old same old.

4. Love - Do you believe in love at first sight?
I've not experienced it, but that doesn't mean I don't believe in it.

5. Sex - How much info is too much info?
I don't want to hear about bodily fluids/products, they gross me out. Other than that, I'm an incredibly curious person. If someone said something I didn't want to hear, I'd tell them to stop or walk away. I'm more likely to be interested in the mechanics of a particular act/state academically than be automatically horrified. Things like genital mutilation and a specific vaginal piercing (not gonna elucidate you here, unless you really want to know) kinda gross me out.

6. Hobbies - What is your favourite thing to do when you're nervous or waiting for something?
Crochet. It keeps my hands busy, which for me is a really good thing. I should start a club called Fidgeters Anonymous.

7. Pets - Have you ever had a pet besides cats?
Yes. I've had two hamsters and three mice at one point. My sisters had birds, and as a kid I tried to adopt many a wild animal (which my mother never allowed, and all the better for that).

8. Friendship - How long can a friendship endure?
Forever, if each person's idea or need of friendship is being met. I think that some sort of contact between people is important, as well.

9. Literature - When you realize a book is bad, do you give up on it, or do you grit your teeth and finish it?
I give it up. Why waste my time with that when I could be doing something more useful/productive/enjoyable? Also, I rarely read things that don't interest me because I can't read things that don't interest me. My attention span is nil when I'm bored. I'm lucky that I'm genuinely interested in so many things, or I'd never get anything done or pay attention to anyone but myself.

10. Movies - Which character from a movie do you most identify with?
Amelie from Amelie.

11. Home town - Where is "home" to you?
Cleveland, with Achill coming in as a home of my heart. I'll never live in the latter, and I'm not sure I'll live in the former, so I guess home is where I feel comfortable and loved.

12. Physical Appearance - What do you like most about your body?
The color of my eyes and the way I smile.

13. Volunteer Work - What sort of thing would you volunteer for without thinking about it?
If a friend said they needed me, I'd be there for them any way possible.

14. Life Goals - Where do you want to be, and how are you getting there?
I am where I want to be right now, honestly. But in the future, I want to be working at a job where I can make a lot of money and enjoy myself doing it. Why? Because of two things. Planning for future potential health scares and the fact that money gives freedom. I think you can understand why I say that.

15. The World - What is north of you?
A rack of magazines and my coursepack that I really ought to get back to.
