Name/Nickname: Gabriella / Gabatron (do not ask)
Likes: Music! (Nirvana, Jimi Hendrix, GNR, Red Hot Chili Peppers) reading, writing, SWIMMING and surfing.
Dislikes: global warming isn't exactly a favourite of mine, nor is high school and I'm so glad I'm done!
Strong points: Passionate, funny, energetic, enthusiastic, empathetic
Weaker points: loud, talkative, impulsive, can be quick tempered
What is something you'd change about yourself?: This sounds SO superficial but I'd change my nose. I've got a small face, small lips, average eyes, and my nose is a little bit large (it's the classic Italian nose) and... it bothers me a lot. But on a less superficial note I'd probably change my voice's volume level. I can be really loud even without trying and sometimes it's not too great.
Hobbies & Talents: swimming, writing
Favorite colors: Green, Red
Favorite foods: Takoyaki, anything Italian, apple pie
Mature or Immature?: Mature (most of the time)
Leader or Follower?: Leader (most of the time)
Optimistic or Pessimistic?: Optimistic
Day or Night Person? Day
Social or more aloof? Social
Favorite quote & why?: "Life isn't nearly as sacred as the appreciation for passion" - Kurt Cobain. I love it because I feel it represents me a lot, and I think it's pretty insightful. It also shows what I think my generation is somewhat lacking in. I mean we have passion kind of but not enough to drive us to DO anything.
What is the last book you've read?: I had to read Emma by Jane Austen for my English class. It was alright. The last book I read 'cause I wanted to was "Kurt Cobain: Journals" but I don't think that really counts. I haven't had time to read for pleasure with school, but I will this summer!
What are your goals and ambitions: I want to go back to Japan and live there for about a year. I also want to do well in college.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?: In grad. school in California, or in Japan. If I went to Japan I would teach English at the Nova school in Yokohama that I already know, and probably live with my best friend. If I went to grad school I'd go to California because that's where I intend on settling.
What are your closest friends like?: They're very different. One of them is very introspective and not exactly out there with her emotions, and she LOVES to have fun. The other is LOUD and wears her heart on her sleeve and is a bit of a wild child. The other is calm and cool but she gets really emotional really easily. They all love to have fun though.
How do your friends decribe you?: Loud, enthusiastic, funny.
When you’re in a group, what's your part in the group dynamic?: I tend to make a lot of jokes, and put in ideas and take part in conversation.
What was the stupidest thing you and your friends have ever done?: I dunno... we don't really do stupid things! Um but I'd have to say that in freshman year my grade went on a canoe trip, and we played strip soccer in the middle of the night and got ourselves kicked off the trip (the only group to do so in 13 years).
What are your feelings towards each of the four houses?: Slytherin bothers me because they seem very self centred and all about getting what they want and being successful without caring who they hurt. Hufflepuff is nice and sweet and I don't really have any emotion towards them. Ravenclaw, as they should be, are smart but I think that it makes them a little arrogant which isn't always a bad thing. Gryffindor is my favourite because I feel it holds the closest to people like me/the way my friends are. They're a little too proud though, which can be a problem.
Describe the house qualities that you feel accurately reflect you. Please try to include traits from each of the four houses.: Loyal, smart, loving, determined
Given the choice, which house would you NOT want to be in?: Slytherin
Anything else?: Not really!

You're hitting me as Remus Lupin. Your tone seems very him.
TAKOYAKI IS DELICIOUS~~~!!
Ahahaha. And the fact that you're listening to anything Sex Pistols is amazing. I think I just commented about one of your icons a little while ago... but whatever. :D :D :D
And tell the guy in the second picture that the back of his head is SEXY.
