20 Questions

The following are 20 questions about me. I always enjoy doing these questionaries because they allow me to create content without having to think about creating content. For someone like me, who is both lazy and busy, this kind of thing is a godsend. I found this particular questionnaire from Caity‘s blog.

1) What is one of your favorite ways to spend a Saturday?

Photographing stuff. Seriously.

2) List your top three favorite TV shows.

In order, my top three would have to be: Will & Grace, Weeds, and 3rd Rock from the Sun.

3) Would you rather be in pictures or take them?

Take them. I’m not too fond of having my picture taken. I’m not very photogenic.

4) Why do you blog?

Initially, it was because I wanted something to do and I’ve always loved setting up websites. Now, it has evolved into giving me an excuse to operate my web server. I also like talking about myself, of course..

5) Share five websites that you visit regularly.

Facebook, Twitter, The Verge, Ars Technica, and the Photography on the Net Forums.

6) If you could have lunch with one person from your Twitter list who would it be?

Well, I only have four people on my twitter list who are actual people, and of those four people one of them only has a twitter account so she can enter contests. That one person is my sister, and I miss her a ton. So I would have to choose her.

7) List a few of your favorite snacks.

I really enjoy all snacks, so much so that I can’t buy them because I have no self control. When I do buy them, I find myself gravitating towards various types of cookies.

8 ) Do you have a pet? If so, what kind?

I have two cats, Bella and Peanut. Both are obnoxious. Bella is the black one on the right, and Peanut is the orange one on the left.

9) Which three material possessions would you struggle to live without?

My iPhone, my camera, and my iMac. My phone, because it’s the only way I can keep in contact with Levi to make sure he gets to work safely every day. My camera, because it’s my means of expressing myself through artwork. My iMac, because it holds all of my music collection and enables me to edit my photos.

10) What’s your favorite drink?

Various forms of the Chai Latte. So good.

11) Do you enjoy cooking?

I enjoy baking a lot, but cooking dinner? Not so much. I always feel disorganized when I cook.

12) Do you have children?

No kids.

13) What are your favorite hobbies?

Photography, reading, and blogging are my favorite hobbies. But, you’ve probably already figured those things out.

14) Would you consider yourself to be shy or outgoing?

I tend to be a little shy around new people. So much so that I will avoid meeting new people, especially when I am by myself. I guess you could say that I need a support system to meet new people.

15) If you could change one thing about yourself, what would you change?

My negative outlook on life. I’m not sure why, but I oftentimes have trouble seeing the positive side of a situation. I’ve been working on changing this about myself for quite some time, and I think it’s been mostly successful.

16) Who is your favorite actor/actress?

I don’t know if I could choose just one, but if I absolutely had to I would probably pick Julia Stiles. Followed by Debra Messing, of course.

17) What’s the coolest thing you’ve done this week?

Well, it’s Sunday…so…clipping coupons this morning? If I include last week, it would probably be getting coffee yesterday with friends.

18) Do you live near your family or far from them?

I live near my immediate family, except for my sister who lives in texas with her husband and daughter. My extended family live all over the place.

19) List three of your talents.

Well, I’m pretty good at cellular respiration..there are at least three chemical reactions involved there. Just kidding. I consider myself to be pretty good at photography, though I will always have room for improvement. I’m also fairly decent at managing time and cleaning.

20) What is your greatest attribute?

I like making people laugh.
