Nature Lover

When you think about your ideal trip, you know it's not spent inside cramped cities or tour buses.
Nothing makes you feel more relaxed than being outdoors, and you're looking for a spot that's nothing short of paradise.

Whether you're trekking through snow capped mountains or surfing the best waves, you love to stay active.
You love to get away from it all and do a little exploring. The less people around, the better!

You aren't anti-fashion, but you also don't put too much stock on the latest trends.
You simply want to feel comfortable, and bonus points if you can easily fit in with your look.

You know how to pull off a formal look if you have to... you just rather be in jeans.
Just because you're casual, it doesn't mean you're not stylish. You're always ready to rock a fun accessory or shirt.

Aqua Eyes

You are a lively, outgoing, and even chatty person. You thrive when you're around others.
You love to play, and you're always looking for new playmates to add to your circle of friends.

You may be lighthearted, but you're also an intellectual. The world fascinates you.
You are both inquisitive and adventurous. You have a lot of questions, and you're willing to travel the world to find their answers.


Your heart soars whenever you have the chance to do something new, and that goes double for Valentine's Day.
You would love excitement and novelty to celebrate this special day. You especially love surprises!

Your ideal Valentine's Day is unconventional, quirky, and not traditionally romantic by any means.
You don't like a lot of pressure on V-Day. You just want to have some fun!


You think gambling is fun, but you would never take it too terribly seriously.
You don't expect too get rich from gambling. You're too realistic for that!

You are very civic and community minded. If you're going to have fun gambling, you want to be giving back at the same time.
You are generous and giving. You love having money best when you're able to help others with it.

Sunset Meme 2/13

1. What is your favorite Mexican dish? There is a Mexican restaurant here that has awesome chicken fajitas. One of my friends went there today and now I'm totally craving it!

2. When you were a kid, did you get started on your homework right away after school, or did you procrastinate? I am a master procrastinator, but then in the very end (with all the pressure) I can get a lot done!

3. What is your favorite store for home furnishings? Goodwill? LOL...probably Target

4. When you were young, did you like school lunches? In grade school we had to bring our own lunches except for one Friday a month, when we had sloppy joes, cheetos, and punch. It was delicious! Then I moved schools in 5th grade and got free lunch at the public school and LOVED it. I was sad to leave after that year, if for nothing else than the yummy (though I'm sure unhealthy!) school lunches.

5. Is religion a crutch? It can be...especially when people get hung up on the sins people have committed. I'm not sure what happened to "love the sinner, not the sin". We need to go back to that.

6. In your region, what is the “big” high school sport? I'm not really sure but guessing either football or lacrosse.

7. Do you consider yourself rich? Money-wise, not at all. Friends and family wise, yes.

8. Which of these would you have the best chance administering:

B) Heimlich Maneuver
C) Changing a flat tire

9. Which dance would you prefer to learn & why:

A) Salsa
B) Hip Hop- it sounds fun, and I already know swing.
C) Waltz
D) Swing

10. What’s the worst news you’ve ever delivered to someone? At this point, I feel like it's telling my former boss that I wasn't going back to my school at the beginning of the next school year...but I don't know. I've never had to tell anyone that their family member died or anything, I think that would be the worst.

11. Name something you learned in college that had nothing to do with classes or academics. Friends come and go- it has to do with the seasons of life, I suppose.

12. New variation on an old question: If there’s a song in your head that just won’t get out, what is your favorite (or most repeated) line in that song? You know, I don't really have one (right now...)
