Who are your role models?: My father. While we have not always been on the best of terms with one another, he has found something he is passionate about doing, and regardless of the setbacks that he has encountered for doing it, he continues to persevere. He is a teacher, and regardless of the fact that teachers make little to no money, he finds a way to make everything work. It's hard - i think harder for him than any of us, but he loves doing it, and works through it. That has always been an inspiration to me, and for that reason, he is my role model.
Most memorable experience: Meeting Billy Corgan
What do you find attractive in a guy/girl?: Individuality, a beautiful smile, and a loving heart.
Long term goals in life: Up until a few weeks ago, I had hoped to go to law school. I'm thinking that I'm not sure that I want to commit myself to another 5 years in school for something that I'm not 100% sure about wanting to do for the rest of my life. So that being said, I have decided that I want to pursue piercing and body modification, and if I find myself very happy in that profession, I hope to ultimately open my own tattoo shop.
Gay marriages: I'm the most liberal person I have ever met - I am absolutely for it.
Suicide: It's absolutely tragic that so many people find themselves in such an unhappy place, without hope that it will get better. I have been down that path before, and I know how easy it is to give up. After being in such a situation, I've found that you've got to keep hope in something - because even if you lose everything, nobody can take hope away from you.
Abortion: The government has no right to control a woman's body. Only that woman should have the right to decide what is and isn't okay when it comes to their bodies. I personally do not think it is morally wrong, however I only think that, if not used as a means of contraception, then it should be absolutely permissable.
Death penalty: Against
Edge, and are you?: I havent even heard that term before... so I'll go with the negative.
Kerry/Bush and any reasons why?: Kerry, he has laid out strategic and logical planning that could have helped out country into a better standing - now who knows whats gonna happen.
