Total Volunteer Hours to Date:32

Volunteer Job: Teen activities

What is your Zodiac sign?:  I'm a Libra, and while we're on the subject of Zodiac signs...why is Libra represented by a scale when it is the Latin word for book? Just pointing that out it doesn't make sense.

Which would you rather do: Dance like no one is watching or sing like no one is listening?:  I'm not much of a dancer except when it comes to Dance Dance Revolution, but I don't mind being caught doing that.   On the other hand I would rather not be caught singing just because of the several times I have been caught singing when I thought no one was around.  The most recent time was when I was singing some type of girly pop song that got stuck in my head in the shower of my dorm.  When I came out, I found my roommate laughing about it; at least according to him I have a good singing voice though.

What are your favorite lyrics?:  “Must be Dreaming” by Frou Frou

Do you have any weird talents?:  That all depends on what you classify as "weird". Frankly, just as a side note, one of my favorite hobbies includes trying to find this rare creature people call a "normal person".  Now back to the question, yes I kind of do have a few strange talents, I know Kendo (the best way I can describe that to Non-Kendo people is... just think of a style of Japanese fencing).  I also know how to skim board which is I guess not as rare as Kendo but it's a lot easier do.

What are you reading right now?:  That question really depends on the time of the day.   For the most part there are three books I have been reading at my leisure.  The one I read between classes is Brave New World.  The book by my bed, is called Blood Ninja.  This was just something I picked up by a whim.  Basically a good way to sum this up is there's a very dangerous ninja loose in Japan, and just to make things worse he's a vampire. Ninja + vampire = one epic level assassin.  Lastly I've been reading a Manga series called Night School  in preparation for meeting this author next October, I'm not going to say who she is but she also wrote Dramacon.

What is your favorite kind of ice cream?:  Chocolate on top of chocolate on top of chocolate on a chocolate bar with chocolate syrup.

Do you have a collection? What is it and how old were you when you
started it?:  Yes I do, and I'm pleased to say I have two complete sets.  I think it was about 10 years ago that the U.S. Banks started issuing those state quarters.  That's probably the only collection that I own that has a lot of value to me.  Also I have another collection currently going right now; I have piles upon piles of Yu-Gi-Oh cards in my room.

Who is your favorite musical group?:  My taste in music tends to be a little bipolar, but currently I've been really enjoying Vocaloids.

Which foreign country would you like to visit and why?:  I really want to visit Japan one day I know the culture, the history, and I am working on learning the language. Japan just has so many things I love, Anime, Manga, cute Asian girls, and many other fun Anime geek stuff.
