So, let's see if I can make this whole thing sound sane so the Spinster found these questions and then Lynn found them and decided to do these questions today and Filly found them on Lynn's and she did them herself. So I figured whatevers good enough for them is good enough for me.
Q: If something is forbidden, do you want it less or more?
A: Depends, if it is illegal or against immoral no. But if it's something like a slice of cake on a diet or dressing "out of fashion" (such as wanting to wear my Victorian outfit I've sewn in public while I"m shopping) then I usually want it more.
Q: Is there an area of your life where you feel out of control? Especially in control?
A: I have to say that I can't control GVEA (electrical company) from not giving power outages. I can't control the stupid people in my classes from being stupid. But I can control what I think and do so I feel especially in control of myself and out of control of everyone else.
Q: If you unexpectedly had a completely free afternoon, what would you do with that time?
A: I'd pamper myself and knit and watch my Hepburn movies.
Q: Are you comfortable or uncomfortable in a disorderly environment?
A: If it's something like an office or class room I ca work with out being stressed out. But if it's my home and it's messy I start to get stressed, restless, and I start to cringe. Finally I have to do it or explode.
Q: How much time do you spend looking for things you can’t find?
A: More time than I wish I had. I have a bad habit of losing everything (or almost everything.)
Q: Are you motivated by competition?
A:No, I like doing things the way I want with out criticism. It also stresses me out. The only time I feel motivated is when I'm doing races (which I don't do in the first place.)
Q: Do you find it easier to do things for other people than to do things for yourself?
A: "Sometimes. I will cook more elaborate or nicer food to take someplace than what I'll fix for myself a lot of the time." Well put Filly.
Q: Do you work constantly? or think you should be working?
A: Yes and no, if you only count set working (school, homework, work) then no, I don't work constantly. But if not, then I do work all the time, I knit, sew, research, and post on the web + housework.
Q: Do you embrace rules or flout rules?
A: I can follow the rules if I want. But I think rules can be stupid and pointless. I sometimes break minor rules if I want. I feel likes it's a small step against "the man".
Q: Do you work well under pressure?
A: Mild to moderate pressure, yes. Extreme pressure, no.
Q: What would your perfect day look like?
A: Pamper myself, being alone, eating what I want, and watching all the TV and movies I want. Or spend the day with friends.
Q: How much TV do you watch in a week (include computer time spent watching videos, movies, YouTube)?
A: It depends, It can vary, If I'm watching ROV I can spend all day watching re-runs. Or any anime for that reason. Somedays it can be like an hour or it could be a whole day.
Q: Are you a morning person or a night person?
A: Night person, I work well at night I clean and do homework. I guess that's because I'm alone and it's quiet. I can super easily stay up to 3 A.M.
Q: What’s more satisfying to you: saving time or saving money?
A: Time, because I never have enough of it.
Q: Do you like to be in the spotlight?
A: Yes and no. I don't like it all the time but I relish those moments when I'm publicly recognized.
Q: Is your life “on hold” in any aspect? Until you finish your thesis, get married, lose weight?
A. No, If my life was on hold I would be a pathetic person. I merely take life as it comes.
Q: What would you do if you had more energy?
A: I would read more, knit more, stay up for several days, and do my homework at night.
Q: If you suddenly had an extra room in your house, what would you do with it?
A: A sewing room, because I don't have one, or a library because I don't have one.
Q: What people and activities energize you? Make you feel depleted?
A: My friends, reading, knitting, and sewing make me feel energized. School makes me feel depleted.
Q: Is it hard for you to get rid of things that you no longer need or want?
A: Not really.
Q: Do you get frustrated easily?
A: Ugh, yes. I get really made first I swear and just get mad. Then I cry. I hate crying because I look ugly. Plus I just hate crying.
Q: On a typical night, what time do you go to bed? How many hours of sleep do you get?
A: I try to go to bed at 10:30 but I'm a night person so it's hard. I get about 6-8 hour of sleep.
Q: If at the end of the year, you had accomplished one thing, what
is the one accomplishment that would make the biggest difference to
A: Finish writing my book
Q: And here’s another question for you. What questions would you
add to this list, to help other people know themselves better? It’s so
important, and so elusive.
A: If you could do something different with your life - not the career
you currently have - what would it be? (I would own a sewing and knitting cafe'/ bookstore/ run a book club. That's my dream career.)
