The last thing you put in your mouth: a granola bar.
Give us a lyric, unpretentious yet meaningful: l'amour est un oiseau rebelle que nul ne peut apprisvoiser...(Carmen; Habañera)
Tell us something we don't already know: I have a strong fear of spiders.
Tell us a riddle, but don't tell us the answer: I can run, but I cannot walk. Wherever I go, thought inevitably follows.
Tell us a story: There once was a girl whom believed herself worthy of every fact, opportunity, and talent, yet she wouldn't hear of harvesting any flaw. Fortunately enough, fate thought the better of it and granted her the wonderful gift of wisdom, skill, AND imperfection. Thus, she lived realistically ever after.
Tell us your favorite teacher ever, and why: Hands down...my first grade teacher for the very reason that she has always been the most generous, kind-hearted person whom I have ever known.
In exactly 50 words, tell us about yourself, why you want to join, and why we should accept you: I do not wish to claim that I have an excessively profound mind; I merely show you who I am. I took the liberty of filling out this survey in hopes of meeting new, interesting people. Take me as I am, or leave me. Nonetheless, I will remain just so. :o)
Show us a picture. Any picture. It could be you, or it could be the grand canyon: My old headshot.
Lastly, Do you promise to post interesting updates to this community at least every now and then so it doesn’t wither and die? Will this vow be done with a Bible? I will try my best. ;o)
Do you keep all your promises? The latter statement should suffice.
