Questionnaire Time

Hmmm. I guess that romantic stories are what the masses want. I haven't gotten that many comments on one post since I was a Xanga-er back in high school.

However, I do not have any romance novels for you today.

But while I'm kind of on the topic of romance, Austin is actually visiting me tomorrow so he can get one of the three licenses he needs in order to be a financial advisor. He'll be here for less than 24 hours but I'll take any time I can get!

I have been trying to get a job for the past few weeks, and it's been frustrating. I have an interview tomorrow, so I'll let you know how that goes. If I don't get a job, I won't be able to get a car. And if I don't get a car, I won't be able to get to Frisco each day for student teaching in the Fall. So I need a job.

Chrissie and I are watching Hairspray right now. I love that movie. It was definitely my favorite movie of 2007.

So this questionnaire has been floating around Blog Land and although I haven't been "tagged", I am going to fill it out and tag some of my readers, to make sure they are paying attention. ;-) Some of them probably won't fill it out, but I'm going to tag them anyways. I normally don't fill out these types of things, but I thought it would be fun this time. Here goes.

Here are the rules:

1. The rules of the game get posted at the beginning.
2. Each player answers the questions about themselves.
3. At the end of the post, the player then tags five people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read the player’s blog.
4. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.

What were you doing 5 years ago?

Let's see, it was 2003 and it was the summer in between my junior and senior year in high school, and I was 17...
1. I was preparing for an extremely tough year of taking only three subjects (Chemistry, Math, English literature) in a great amount of depth.
2. I was spending my time relaxing in England for part of the summer.
3. I went on a trip to Texas to visit Anna with my sisters Carolyn and Kellie.
4. I was writing in Xanga a lot (starting that Fall) and haven't stopped blogging since.
5. I was waiting to get my test results back from my junior year's standardized exams.

What are 5 things on your to-do list today (not in any particular order)?

Most of today is already gone so I'll list things I've done:
1. Go to Bible study on Esther with my mom
2. Go to church
3. Go to Target with Chrissie and Kellie
4. Apply for a job
5. Watch "The Next Food Network Star" (in the process of doing this now)

What are 5 snacks you enjoy?

1. Yogurt covered pretzels
2. Sundried Tomato & Basil flavored Wheat Thins

What 5 things would you do if you were a billionaire?

1. Ask Austin how to invest it and then put most of it into some sort of high-risk account thing (he knows all about that stuff)
2. Buy a car for myself and another car for Kellie since she won't have one yet for college
3. Give a lot of it to Carolyn so she can go live in another country and be a missionary
4. Help a lot of families to adopt children by covering their costs
5. I would want to help people in need such as the homeless or those in poverty, as well as those who are lonely or hurting. I would probably go to a homeless shelter and take them all out to dinner at a really nice restaurant (how fun would that be?!) or hold a fun activities night for nursing home residents - complete with live band, costumes and decorations

What are 5 of your bad habits?

1. Sleeping for too long if I don't have anywhere to be

4. College Station, TX (from 2004 until this summer, for college)
5. Oak Point, TX (where I am now and will be for ?? - at least Christmas time)

What are 5 jobs you've had?

1. Babysitter for about 27 billion kids
2. Research and Development Technician for PepsiCo International - basically I helped to make new kinds of chips in small batches for the British version of Frito Lay (called Walker's Crisps)
3. and
4. that's
5. all

What 5 people do you want to tag?
(I'm tagging more than 5!)

1. Ali - We have had almost the exact same classes for the past year, and I get to be [fairly] close to her this next semester. I bet she would have some really great answers, and I want to get to know her better!
2. Ashley - My other whole and old math buddy. She is now a teacher in the Houston area and I miss the heck out of that girl!
3. Austin - The bf. I doubt he'll do it but I'm tagging him anyways.
4. Erica - A precious friend from this past year! I haven't seen her in so long and I want to know her answers!
5. Erin - Austin's roommate's fiancee. I bet she'll do it and I know I'll love reading her answers.
6. Helen - A beautiful friend from high school who loves to do these things. ;-)
7. Lauren - Another education friend that I miss a lot! We love acting the same age as the middle school kids we'll be teaching!!
8. Leda - Erica's sister. She is a new blogger and loves to write!! I know she'll have great responses!

That's all. I hope everyone is enjoying their Sunday evening!
