  • Birthplace: W'burg, Ontario

  • Eye color: Greenish, greyish, blueish
  • Hair color: Brown
  • Height: 5′ 8″
  • Righty or lefty: Righty
  • Zodiac sign: Libra


  • Your heritage: About as WASP-y as you get. English and Scottish mixed on all sides, most of whom came to the U.S. first and then to Canada as United Empire Loyalists.
  • The shoes you wore today: Teva runners, they make me feel outdoorsy.
  • Your weakness: Shopping and bad for me food.
  • Your fears: I have and always have had so many (thanks to my Generalized Anxiety Disorder).
  • Your perfect pizza: Just cheese!
  • Goal you’d like to achieve: To never stop learning new things.


  • Your most overused phrase on AIM: Change that to MSN, it would have to be "hahaha" or "no kidding".
  • Your first waking thoughts: If I'm working days, something like "ugggghhh".
  • Your best physical feature: I have pretty eyes.
  • Your most missed memory: My days as a camp counsellor, I did not cherish those times enough.


  • Pepsi or Coke: Usually, I'm a Diet Coke girl, but lately I've been loving Diet Pepsi.

  • Lipton Ice Tea or Nestea: I don't like ice tea.
  • Chocolate or vanilla: Chocolate!
  • Cappuccino or coffee: I don't like the taste of coffee, so usually I'll go for a hot chocolate if I need a hot drink. If I had to choose, a cappuccino, they remind me of studying in university.


  • Smoke: Never.
  • Cuss: A little too often sometimes.
  • Sing: Only when I'm alone for the most part. Like, to my cat in my apartment and while driving. I spent my summer driving and singing.

  • Do you think you’ve been in love: No, I haven't.
  • Want to go to college: I've gone to university and am currently in college. I'll probably go back for a masters someday.
  • Liked high school: Yeah, I had a lot of awesome friends, good teachers, and was a part of the Drama Club (which was MUCH less nerdy than it sounds).
  • Want to get married: Maybe, if I am absolutely sure.
  • Believe in yourself: Sometimes, in some situations more than others.
  • Get motion sickness: Rarely, but it's happened.

  • Get along with your parent(s): Very well, especially now that I haven't lived with them for so long.

yay! I always enjoy these types of things. I like the glimpse into the randomness of someone else's personality.

Glad you liked this!

And I have a friend in her first semester at Humber College! If you have any questions just e-mail them to me and I can forward them along to her, I'm sure she'd be thrilled to answer them.
