Name/Nickname: Meagan, but I also answer to Pippin, Megs, and Boba. :-)
Likes: Baseball, hanging out with friends, shopping (the cure-all), movies, my church, reading, writing, a routine
Dislikes: Artificial sweeteners, tomatoes, shallowness
Strong points: Written communication, good listener, good sense of humor
Weaker points: Can get angry easily, moody, opinionated to a fault
What is something you'd change about yourself?: I'd be more flexible/patient with other people. :)
Hobbies & Talents: I am a good scrapbooker and photographer, and write well. I am a big fan of travelling, too.
Favorite colors: I'm a big fan of cerulean blue! (Yes, I used Crayola obsessively as a child.)
Favorite foods: Mm ... pizza, a good steak, curry, and chocolate!
Mature or Immature?: More mature, I'd like to think ... though my immaturity seems to be expressing itself more and more lately. *le sigh*
Leader or Follower?: I'll lead if I have to, but I prefer to follow.
Optimistic or Pessimistic?: Optimistic!
Day or Night Person? Definitely day. I get cranky the later I stay up.
Social or more aloof? Mm ... some of both. It really depends on the situation. I'm definitely not shy when I am around my friends, but in new situations I am very quiet.
Favorite quote & why?: I have a lot of favorite quotes! ;-) One of my favorites right now is one by Lev Tolstoi: "Love is life. All, everything that I understand, I understand only because I love. Everything is, everything exists, only because I love. Everything is united by it alone. Love is God, and to die means that I, a particle of love, shall return to the general and eternal source." It is particularly inspiring to me during this time of Lent, as it reminds me of the higher calling placed upon me: to love God and my fellow (wo)man unconditionally.
What is the last book you've read?: A book called Storm. It's the third book in a series on the Great Awakenings of the 16th-17th centuries.
What are your goals and ambitions: Oh, how I wish I knew! ;-) I'd like to advance my career at the company I'm at, and live life to the fullest. I'd like to travel more and contribute somehow to a travel guidebook. I'd also like to write a book on the Romanovs and live in Spain for a while.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?: Let's see, by then Il'l be 29 ... I'd really like to be married by then and in a house! I'd also like to pursue scrapbooking and stamping more as a career. I am a consultant for a company right now and wish I could do that as my only job, but alas, it doesn't pay the bills.
What are your closest friends like?: They're funny, supportive, varied, and fun-loving. We're all bookies to some degree, and like to get each other to read new things (like Harry Potter).
How do your friends decribe you?: Quiet until I get to know someone, studious, intelligent, snarky (for good or ill), likes to have a good time.
When you’re in a group, what's your part in the group dynamic?: I'm the one listening to everyone else, sort of between conversations, and always sharing a story that probably really doesn't fit the situation as much as I think it will.
What was the stupidest thing you and your friends have ever done?: Hmm. I'm sure I'll probably think of something. We aren't really all that rebellious, and honestly, we haven't done anything too incredibly stupid. My friend and I both had what we "fondly" call Fatal Attractions in junior high -- obsessive crushes -- but ... it was junior high. A lot of people are pretty stupid in junior high!
What are your feelings towards each of the four houses?: I like Ravenclaw because they're the smart, studious, witty ones. Slytherin kind of creeps me out, just because I know what I am capable of and I don't want to let myself run into a potentially dark and dangerous vein! Gryffindor is the house everyone wishes they could be in, including me, but I don't think I'm brave enough. Hufflepuff is underrated -- they're really quite cool people, but overshadowed by the other houses.
Describe the house qualities that you feel accurately reflect you. Please try to include traits from each of the four houses.: Well, I think I kind of touched on that in the above question, but not really. So. I like to think I'm smart & witty, and I always was a big fan of school, so that's the Ravenclaw in me coming out. I have a dark side, like many Slytherins, even though I try not to let it slip out (unlike many Slytherins). I'm a big fan of chivalry (like Gryffindor), and fair play and hard work (like Hufflepuff).
Given the choice, which house would you NOT want to be in?: Oh, definitely Slytherin. I just couldn't do it.
Anything else?: Mm, no, I don't think so.
How did you find this community?: By way of stamping_comms!
Pictures. Or a description of yourself.
Hee. :) Thanks!! I love Arthur!
I have no idea if it's kosher to comment or not when I'm still being "voted on" -- so forgive me if it's not! But yeah, I was kind of wondering myself why voting was so quiet!
Maybe I should go vote on some others' applications ... lol! *sheepish grin*
I have to agree with Arthur Weasley
vote for me? http://community.livejournal.com/mwpp_r
I mena Weasley, if you didn't know. But I think you did. So whatever.:D
Anyway, I see Arthur in many, many places of your interview-thingy. Mostly just your overall tone, though. It's uncanny.
