|| PENSIVES AND MIRRORS ||
I would put memories of my dog Alex so that they wouldn't deteriorate any further than they already have. He died over 10 years ago, and it still hurts, but I remember him fondly. I would also start putting my memories of my Luna cat into it, so they wouldn't change at all. I've had her since she was four months. She's six now. Her and I are best buds.
Also memories of my family. My family has become even more important to me since I moved two provinces away three year ago. :( But I still see them once a year so it's not that bad.
I would also stick the ones with my great accomplishments in the pensive. Graduation, moving to a particular city, getting a particular job, etc. Things that I want to cherish forever.
It would have to depend on my mood. If I was feeling sad, I'd go visit memories of my family at the happiest times.
If I was happy, I'd go visit memories of Alex-dog for nostalgic purposes.
I would also visit my cherished memories, so that I could relive them over and over. As stated above, my accomplishments would be visited a lot. I like to see myself as successful in order to become successful, and this would help me with that.
I want to get off my ass and get into schooling so that I can become a Library Info Technician. Working with books is something I've been gearing for all my life and just now finally have the balls to implement it. If all goes to plan, I'll become that by the age of 32. *nods* Other than that, I just want to be happy, which I am currently. I'm honestly tired of being in dead end jobs that don't allow me to get anywhere. I want to do something that keeps my interest, where I can continually learn, and not get bored at my job.
Other than that, I want to finish two of my books that I have started and have them listed either on Amazon.com or on the shelf at the local book stores. I participated in NaNo '09, and have taken a long enough break from writing. Time to get back to it.
Happy, happily married, living in a house, no kids. Working a full time job as Library Info Tech. Successful, still having drive and the initiative to get things done. Having enough money to go travel to where I want to.
Having enough money that I need, instead of living paycheck to paycheck. Don't get me wrong, I'm not starving or whatnot, but I'd like to be able to BUY stuff like clothes and techno gadgets and toys without having to worry about having enough for X that month. Other than that, I'm pretty happy where I'm at, which is being in my townhouse that's got a nice small yard. I live with my Luna-cat and my boyfriend Aaron, and I have a part time job. Okay, so if I were to look into the Mirror I'd see myself in a Full Time CSM position, instead of part time cashier O.o
|| CHOICES SHOW WHAT WE TRULY ARE ||
I'm a leader. I've been forcing myself to stop worrying what other people think. I'll take a chance and if it ends up being wrong, I learn from it.
I wouldn't do anything. I realize how bad a situation could end up by using a time turner, and an entire period of history could be altered. That alone is scary.
Though, if I had a way of knowing that just by going back would be safe, I would go back to the ancient Egyptian times. That period has always held such a fascination with me. I would love to see how everyday life was for them, watch it in action instead of reading it in books. I would adore watching just how they put together the pyramids.
Empathy. I have the ability to pick up on what others are feeling, so I know where they're coming from and am able to relate to them more, and have a more personal interaction with them
Funny. The ability to make people laugh. I know a lot of people have told me recently that I'm funny, and that it's nice to be around me since I know how to break up a monotonous situation. People tend to feel a lot more comfortable around others who can make people laugh. They share a deeper camaraderie. Also, my sense of humour is a little bit twisted and most people like it. (There are however some people who don't but that is there issue, not mine.)
Blunt. I'm very blunt at times. I had one co worker tell me she likes that about me. It comes in very handy in certain situations. I do not sugar coat anything, I give it to you straight.
Honest. I hate it when people lie to me, so why would I lie to others? I find it very hurtful so I just don't do it.
I'm accountable to a lot of things that I do, whether they are intentional or unintentional. I know that a lot of people will lay blame on others, but I see it as an opportunity to grow and learn about myself if I take responsibility for my actions. When something happens negatively, I'll say that it was me or my fault, and in the end feel better about myself because I didn't need to stoop to lies and deceit.
I've been very spoiled throughout life. If it's not my parents, it's my friends or my significant other. This doesn't mean I expect things to be handed to me on a silver platter, it just means that I've not really learned necessary life skills or traits other people have. I'm a bit socially awkward because of this, and I view this is bad.
I can be very messy. I quite often leave the dishes sitting on the counter for days at a time. I also don't put away my clothes after taking them out of the laundry machines. I may be messy, and be disorganized because of this, but I am not a dirty person. I'm a huge germaphob, to the point where I wash my hands enough so that they dry out and get those tiny cuts in my skin.
I'm far too trusting. I have been known to trust a person right from the off, and it has gotten me into a lot of trouble at times. It's lost me jobs in the past...
I'm also gullible. I used to believe everything that anybody said, and that has lead up to some pretty embarrassing and negative experiences for me.
I also been known to be extremely bad tempered. I feel emotions exceptionally well, and this can lead to a lot of screaming or crying. It's made the people closest to me uncomfortable and I often hurt them.
|| WE MUST UNITE INSIDE HER, OR WE'LL CRUMBLE FROM WITHIN ||
I like everybody for the most part. I'm extremely friendly and say hi to everyone. Ginny and Luna are my top two picks, because I see a lot of myself in them. Luna is well known for being a bit odd, and I definitely dance to my own beat. I would also be friends with McGonagall, Lupin, Sprout and Dumbeldore. I adore teachers because they have just so much knowledge and experience. Also, I find that anybody who truly cares for their students wants to have a sort of relationship with them, but I've found out that it's usually up to the students to make the first move. Also, it's extremely handy to have some weight on your side, especially if you land yourself into trouble ;p
Mmm. This is such a delicious question because animals are so brilliant! I would love to have a snake Patronus since I've always found them delightfully interesting.
Though if it were possible at all to have an aquatic Patronus, I think having a stingray or even an eel would be awesome. I'm a water sign so I've always been attracted to eels, stingrays, jellyfish and the like.
I have read all of the books multiple times. Prisoner of Azkaban by far is my favourite since I feel that is when Harry really started to shine and really start to grow as a character. Also, Professor Lupin is one of the most interesting characters, as well as Sirius. The first time I read the book I was really awed by the whole Time Turner and how everything played out. I wasn't confused at all, so it was written very well.
"I've been able to see them ever since my first year here. They've always pulled the carriages. Don't worry. You're just as sane as I am." Luna Lovegood. What is there not to like about her? She gives off this utterly mad vibe, but you learn that she's actually incredibly wise for her age.
This is my favourite quote since this is where we are introduced to her. It just made me giggle for five minutes upon reading it. I see myself so much in Luna.
A bunch of friends dragged me quite literally to the movie when it first came out. I told them that I would go and hang out, but would end up hating it.
I was bored.
Until Alan Rickman burst into the Potions classroom. I was then hooked.
I went out and bought the book immediately after the movie.
