Now it's official...I'm really bored.

You don't have to read the whole survey. I didn't realize it was so long. But I filled it out, so I figured I'd go ahead and post it.

Where do you see yourself in 6 months?
Living with Vanessa, getting ready to wrap up my fall quarter of 2L law classes.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
As an associate in a big law firm, hopefully by then I will have at least purchased a condo so that I won't be squandering my money away renting a place that will never ever ever actually be mine.

Are you more open and directive or quiet and observant?
I'm quiet and observant at first. I like to know who you are as a person before just talking - lets me decide how much I can safely tell you about myself. I know that sounds like I'm not very trusting of people and, well, it's true.

If you could date a Hollywood star, who would it be?
I guess Hollywood means actors, not singers or speed skaters so...I don't care that he's much older than me, Johnny Depp is really f-ing hot and that's all there is to it.

Boxers, Briefs or Commando?
Boxers. Most guys I know "re-wear" jeans before washing them. Actually, most people I know re-wear jeans a few times before washing them. Gotta have something in between in that case. And briefs just don't look right.

When you relax at home, do you turn down the lights?
All my methods of relaxing require light. Especially reading, which is my favorite way to relax. I suppose I could turn down the lights when watching a movie but it's bad for your eyes to look at the light from the TV without ambient light so I don't usually do that.

If you've had a bad day, what cheers you up more: an episode of Will and Grace? or chatting with a friend?
Well, first of all, for me it would be an episode of Friends as I'm really not a fan of Will and Grace. But, even in light of that, probably chatting with a friend is better. Although I often retreat and don't talk to people when I'm upset so I'm more likely to just watch Friends.

If you were to buy a dog, what would it be?
I don't like dogs. But I guess if for some reason I were to get one, I'd probably get a Lab. They're alright.

If you had the choice between struggling financially and driving a hot car or having excess money, but taking the bus, which would it be?
Excess money and the bus. Especially here, everyone in Boston uses the T whether they have money or not. Seriously. People in suits, going to work. I've seen it.

Would you rather be a Criminal Judge or a Doctor?
First, there is no such thing as a "criminal judge." You're just a judge, and you do both civil and criminal trials. And, under the Sixth Amendment of the Constitution, "In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district where in the crime shall have been committed..." thus it is unconstitutional for the judge in any criminal case to make a determination of guilty or not. And I'm assuming the essential point of differentiating between the invented position of "criminal judge" and doctor was that someone's life is in your hands, but as the judge does not actually have that power, ESPECIALLY in capital crimes, this is not actually a valid comparison. In some states with the death penalty, after a jury has determined that the person has committed a capital crime, the judge does make a determination as to whether the crime shall be punished by death or just by life imprisonment, but as not all states have the death penalty and not all states that have it make the determination like that, that fact still doesn't help this question any.

Alright, now that I'm done criticizing the question - I'd still rather be a judge, otherwise I'd be in med school, not law school.

Would you rather have 4 beers or a shot of Jagermeister?
Beer is gross. The shot of Jagermeister, even though that stuff is gross too, I know how to take shots without tasting them, and I don't think I can drink 4 beers without tasting them.

Would you rather bungee jump or sky dive?
Neither, but if I have to choose I'd go sky diving. Something about trusting a giant rubber band scares me more than trusting a parachute, since people have been trusting parachutes for a lot longer than they've been trusting giant rubber bands.

If you have to have your wisdom teeth pulled, would you rather get local anesthetic or get "put to sleep"?
I already had them pulled, and I was put to sleep. Although actually I had to be put to sleep because they had to take the buds out before they broke through the gums, my jaw was too small and they were going to mess up all the beautiful work my braces did.

Do you sleep on your side, back or chest?
Usually my side, sometimes my back.

You're financially strapped and you find a wallet with $500 cash in it.
Do you:
a) Take everything
b) Take the money and leave the wallet
c) Try to notify the owner and give it all back
d) Try to notify the owner and give it back w/o the cash, saying it was gone when you found it.

I lost my purse once. And then I got it back. It restored my faith in humanity, and if I ever have the chance to do that for someone else, I'm certainly going to.

I didn't have any cash in the purse at the time, other than a small change purse with like, a dollar in it or something. The change purse was missing - and the loss of the change purse itself made me more sad than the loss of the money inside because it was a gift a friend had brought back from Peru.

Would you rather own a pet scorpion or a pet tarantula?
Um. Yeah, both are arachnids, and I have arachnophobia. So, no.

If you are in a room with a person who smells really foul, would you openly say or do something to indicate that the person smells bad, or would you grin and bear it?
I'd probably get as far as I could from them. Bad smells make me ill. But I wouldn't say something.

If you went to jail and had to sit in the drunk tank with other people, are you most likely to stir up a conversation with the other people, or just keep to yourself in a corner?
I'd sit in a corner.

If you were to show yourself in Aspen Colorado on the ski slopes, would you wear Oakley sunglasses or Versace?
Sunglasses are too easy to lose to spend so much money on them. I have 10 dollar sunglasses I got at a stand just outside Faneuil Hall, but on the ski slopes I'd probably be wearing ski goggles, no particular brand, to keep the snow from flying in my eyes.

How did you and your number 1 become friends?
My dear Christen? We met in Sophomore year of high school and the rest is history.

How late did stay up last night and why?
I was awake until 2 am. I was at Amanda's until midnight and I think I had too many non-decaf Irish coffees while there. I didn't have enough alcohol to balance out the caffeine so I watched some TV and then thought about random things until I fell asleep.

What's the connection between you and the last person you texted?
Nessa! I met her at law school and now she's my best friend in Boston. I texted her at midnight so I could be the first to say Happy Birthday.

Do you like someone?
Ugh. Well, yes, but I shouldn't anymore. The whole thing was just a mess. And that's all I'm going to say about it.

Have you ever been hit by the opposite sex?

Have you ever kissed someone whose name started with an S?
Why, yes.

How's your life lately?
Well, I'm tired of relaxing and recuperating from 1L year, and looking forward to starting my internship next week. But, generally good.

Do you know anyone that is currently locked up?
I know of a couple people but not anyone that I knew well enough to really think about it unless I'm telling stories about the scandals that went on in my high school.

Have you ever dated someone longer than a year?

What do you think about the current gas prices?
They kill me every time I visit home because that's where my car is. But when I'm in Boston, I don't really think much of them at all, I ride the T every day with my nice little monthly pass.

If you had a sex tape and someone offered you 3 million dollars to sell it to them would you?
Um, no.

Have you ever been so drunk that you blacked out?
I don't even like to be drunk enough to get sick. I hate being out of control of the situation, and getting sick is the first sign of being out of control. I stop there. If I even get to that point in the first place.

Do you think that you’re a good person?

Have you ever loved someone so much that it hurt?

Are you happier single or in a relationship?
Well, since all the relationships I've ever been in obviously didn't work out, I guess I'm happier when I'm free to find the right person, but I think I'll be happiest once I find them.

Last time you ate a homegrown tomato?
Last year, I think? I have had some really great organic tomatoes recently. I love living a block away from Whole Foods. Can't afford all my shopping there, but I can at least go get quality produce.

Ever ordered from an infomercial?
Not over the phone, but I have bought "as seen on TV" products once they appear in Walgreen's or Target or something. Does that count? Oh, and very soon I'm going to order a pet nail filing contraption for my cat so he doesn't scratch Vanessa's new couch when we move in together.

Do you believe in love at first sight?
"It takes no time to fall in love, but it takes you years to know what love is..."
Yes, I'm quoting Mraz, but I think that line is really the truth of the matter. You can fall hard real fast, but it's not real love until it's had time to grow.

When is the last time you took a nap?
May 9th, after I got home from my last 1L exam. Haven't needed a nap since because I have nowhere to go until my internship starts so I just sleep until I'm not tired.

Who was the last person you talked to on the phone?
Amanda, yesterday.

To send you a myspace message?
Nancy from high school. She found me out of the blue!

To send a friend request?
Nancy couldn't remember how to spell my last name so I had to request her after she sent a message so that doesn't really, I think it was Seth.

What was on your mind mostly today?
That I should really do something, but I'm feeling sleepy and lazy.

Whose bed did you sleep in last night?
Mine. Where else?

Ever kissed anyone 18 or older?
Duh. I'm 25. At this point it's, if not illegal, at least very wrong if they're NOT over 18.

Have you kissed anyone in the last week?

Do you miss anyone?
Actually, I miss Vanessa. She's working too much! We need to celebrate her birthday and make double hair appointments!

What does your 8th text message say and who was it from?
Haha, awesome. It was from Peapod giving me an ETA for my grocery delivery.

What are you listening to?
I'm watching Sex and the City. So, the sounds of the show.

Is there one place you'd like to visit?
Always France, if I have to pick just one place.

Have you held hands with anyone in the past 48 hours?

Do you like Winter time?
I like it in Boston. I know, others think I'm crazy because it's cold, but I like cold. And I like snow. It's pretty. And snow helps lessen the effects of Seasonal Affective Disorder which used to be the main reason I didn't like Winter.

Do you own uggs?
Only because they are really freaking warm. Gotta have winter boots, and that's what you can find now.

Do you regret anything?
I learn from my mistakes instead of regretting the decisions I made then. It's all part of learning and growing and becoming a better person.

What are you excited about?
Starting my internship!

Plans for today?
I'm going to watch Juno and otherwise be a homebody.

What are you doing tomorrow?
Maybe I'll go to Harvard Bookstore and sell some used books.

Do you like to cuddle?
Yes, but not when it's time to sleep. I need my space when I'm sleeping.

How many different people of the opposite sex have you cried over, and who?
You are so not getting names. And I'd rather not count. Let's say more than 5.

Where is your number one person on your friends list?
Back home in Portland. But always just a phone call away.

Do you want to dance?
Yeah, but I don't like gross guys hitting on me in dance clubs so I stay away from them and just dance around in my apartment using my hairbrush as a microphone.

Who do you not get along with?
People that give me a bad vibe and make me uncomfortable. I've learned one too many times that when I get a bad vibe, there's a valid reason. I'd rather not be friends with someone that gives me a bad vibe even if there's no reason than ignore the bad vibe and have there be a reason.

Last movie you watched?
Pirates of the Caribbean. The 3rd one. Last one I watched for the first time was On the Waterfront.

What are your plans for the weekend?
I think some law school friends and I are getting together for one last round of drinks on Friday before we all start our internships or return to classes. Other than that, I don't have any plans yet. It's only Monday, after all.

Whats your hair look like today?
Well, since the cat doesn't really care how it looks, it's back in a low ponytail so I don't have to deal with it.

Suppose you see your bf/gf kissing another person:
Knowing my temper...there'd probably be throwing of things, there would be some yelling and screaming and angry crying, and I'm sure a break-up would ensue.

Something interesting happen lately?
I might be on TV. That's pretty interesting. See previous blog.

Personally if I was in the drunk tank I would spark up a conversation with myself in the corner, that way others would leave me alone ;~)

Dancing - I used to go EVERY WEEK from Thursday night through Sunday night. not kidding, i LOVE to dance. The way to keep creepy guys awsy from you is 1. drink only bottled water all night (they know they're not "getting any" when you're not drunk) and 2. dance like you mean it with flailing arms & turns & spinning & stuff (do not think Elaine on Seinfeld, think real dancing that actually looks good lol). If they can't get up on you then there will be no creepiness :)

I must have been bored too, I read it all lol

Only a few more days of boredom until internship starts though girl!
