How and when did you discover Answers.com?
I have been a user since October of 2009. I stumbled upon Answers.com looking for answers related to school. I found some very good answers. I decided to become a member, just for the fun of it. I didn’t intend on being here long, just to see what it was all about. I answered some questions, but not to the best of my ability, not thinking I’d be here for long. I later became a Wikiholic and learned about Community Roles. My participation has simply skyrocketed from thereon out. I intend on staying.
Do you have any pets?
As you may have guessed, I love cats. I have one furball of energy and his name is Sparkie. He is a 10 year old orange tabby who loves a good nap, a nice bowl of food, and a long string of yarn.
Where do you live, how long have you lived there and why do you like the area?
I live in a town very near to DC, in Northern Virginia. I love the town, since it has both modern and historical aspects. Whenever we’re bored on a weekend, we hop into the car and go to a Smithsonian or a park in DC, which is about 30 minutes away. I have lived where I am now, my whole life.
What are your key areas of knowledge, interest or expertise?
I am still in school, so I haven’t really learned about all life has to offer. I do know I am very good at science, in particular biology and astronomy. I also like learning about the elements. I am also an expert at cats and cat care.
Do you have any collections or hobbies?
I have many hobbies. My favorite is playing soccer. My friends tell me I am a new person on the soccer field, and I have been playing for practically my whole life. I love to draw as well as paint flowers and scenery; landscapes. I am a serious book worm, and a lightning fast reader. I am Barnes & Noble’s #1 customer. In my free time I like to do Answers.com, bike, read, etc.
What are a few random facts about yourself?
I have been to 12 states in the US. I play the piano, but not Beethoven material unfortunately. My favorite colors are neon green, turquoise, and pink. I have never sprained, twisted, or broken any bone, despite my soccer. My favorite restaurant is Chipotle.
What are your special goals or dreams?
I aim to become ophthalmologist when I ‘grow up.’ :) I also would like to aim to be a Ruby Contributor in the future. (distant future) I would love to win first place in soccer tournaments. (near future) Next, I aim to continue my straight ‘A’ streak. Wikiwise, my second goal is to reach 100 Trust Points.
How would you describe yourself or personality?
I am an athletic, friendly, nice person. Friends describe me as smart, kind and wise. I think myself as a person who aims high and tries to smile/laugh when appropriate. So, smile!
