My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Carpe Diem- Seize the day. I would much rather make a mistake then to have never tried at all.
Q. What do you regret most?
A. I don't regret anything I've done-- but I do regret not doing some things because I was afraid of looking stupid or failing.
Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?
A. I spent a long time wishing I was more like someone else-- cuter, more athletic, smarter, etc. Now I'm glad to be me.
Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?
A. When I'm really laughing hard I do this really nasty snorting thing. If you heard it, you would know I must be around somewhere.
Q. Which living person do you most admire?
A. My mom is a total class act. Plus she put up with me when I was growing up and although I am sure she was tempted she didn't kill me and hide my body in the backyard.
