Probably my biggest confusion right now lies with education politics. ASU frustrates me. Federal student loan drama frustrates me. And all wrapped up together, it's a confusing bundle. Education is encouraged, but financially unattainable for so many.
334. In what way are you your own worst enemy?
I don't set myself up for success. I have a tendency to not do homework, because I don't feel like it, or because I often find it menial, and it affects my grade much later down the road. I also (as has been mentioned previously) am not the world's greatest communicator and tend toward emotional reactions.
335. When did you not speak up when you should have?
I have always had difficulty with the word "no." I don't like negatively affecting others' opinion of me. However, I have recently been making more of a stand for myself.
336. What is your favorite quote?
The entire poem "If" by Rudyard Kipling. I absolutely adore it.
337. What is your favorite fictional story? (novel, movie, fairytale, etc.)
I think Jurrasic Park is pretty awesome. Plus, Michael Crichton is one of my favorite authors ever.
338. Where or who do you turn to when you need good advice?
My mama is always a good listener. Erika is pretty wonderful as well. And Kyle knows me better than pretty much anyone, so I value what he thinks. I also tend to spend a lot of time alone when I'm going through something stressful, so I have time to process and think.
339. What artistic medium do you use to express yourself?
Music has always been my outlet of choice. I haven't had the opportunity to play piano very often in the last few years, but my music is definitely my artistic medium. Anything that relates to it, as well, is fair game. I have gone dancing on a fairly regular basis, as it's an expression of your body to music.
340. Who or what is the greatest enemy of mankind?
Today, I'm inclined to believe it's our own nation's Congress. Damn, guys. Get your shit together. Because it's OH SO TERRIBLE to allow me to stay on my parents' insurance (if they had any) for another year.
341. What’s something you wish you had done earlier in life?
In the same vein as the previous question... got my shit together. I wish I would've found my focus much earlier, so I wasn't still in school for my undergraduate degree and $80,000 in debt.
