Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit’s a survey!
Are you shocked?
One. What is your middle name?
The most common female middle name in the U.S.
Two. What are you passionate about?
Teaching statistics and math, statistics and math, walking, Leibniz, blogging…that kind of stuff.
Three. Zebra or leopard print?
Four. Do you have any fears?
Five. Silver or gold?
Six. Top three places to visit.
Places I’ve been or places that I think would be my top three places to visit?
Top three places I’ve been: Stockholm, DC, California redwoods (I haven’t been a lot of places, haha).
Top three places I think would be my top three places: Antarctica, Hanover, Stockholm.
Seven. How many siblings do you have?
Eight. Where are you from?
Nine. First career you wanted as a child.
I wanted to be an “artist” (as vague as that is).
Ten. What’s your sign?
Eleven. Future names of your children.
I do not want children, thanks. HOWEVER, I have considered what I would name my kid(s) should I ever have them. Even though I shall not have them. Actually, I’ve really only ever considered names for boys, ‘cause in this horrible alternate timeline where I’m forced to be a parent, I’ve at least been kind enough to myself to only have boys, ‘cause I don’t think I could handle girls. ANYWAY. The problem (and reason #52354 why I shouldn’t have kids) is I like the names “Victor” and “Hugo” for boys, and if I were to have two boys, I’d probably name them “Victor” and “Hugo” and they and myself would be forever considered to be huge Victor Hugo fans and that’s just…it would be a lifelong issue.
But I do not want children and will never have children, so moot point.
(That was a lot of text, sorry)
Twelve. Do you have any pets?
YUP! We have Jazzy and Franklin, though Franklin is definitely more of Nate’s bird than mine.
Thirteen. What are you listening to right now?
Nothing, actually. Shocking!
Fourteen. Do you believe in fate/destiny?
Fifteen. What are your career goals?
I want to do what I’m doing now, only permanently. In other words, I want this instructor position to turn in to a tenure-track position and then, eventually, tenure. I have no idea if that’s going to happen, but that would be fantastic. A dream come true.
Sixteen. What is your favorite color?
Seventeen. What is your favorite flower?
Flowers don’t do too much for me, probably because I can’t smell them. I’ve always liked sunflowers, though. They’re massive and pretty.
Eighteen. What was the first concert/show you attended?
Nineteen. Something you are working on right now.
Hahaha. A LOT of things. But the “main” thing is my Decade of Music project wrap-up.
Twenty. Have you ever had a near-death experience?
That night at Idler’s Rest with Rob certainly felt like a near-death experience. I was sure we were going to be killed. Creepiest thing that’s ever happened to me.
Twenty-one. Are you a procrastinator or do you get things done early?
I try not to procrastinate, but sometimes it just happens.
Twenty-two. Left or right handed?
Twenty-three. TV Shows you watch regularly.
Lately? Chicago Hope (re-runs are on one of the five stations we get up here, so WOO), Top Chef (we’re watching the old seasons together), and Riverdale.
Twenty-four. Where do you work?
U of C.
Twenty-five. Halloween costume idea for this year?
Halloween is OVER!
Twenty-six. What is your relationship status?
Twenty-seven. Last movie you just watched.
I have no idea what movies we’ve seen recently. I can barely remember what I did yesterday.
Twenty-eight. Your best friend’s name.
I don’t think I have a best friend.
Twenty-nine. A song that’s been stuck in your head.
“It’s a Shame” by First Aid Kit
Thirty. A book you want to read/have recently read.
I don’t even remember the last book I read. HOW SAD IS THAT. The next book I want to (re-)read is Nevil Shute’s On the Beach.
