finally that meme...

Well, it's been several days since A Place for Us tagged me for a MEME. Finally, although I probably should have been focusing on other things at the moment, I've finished it.

And, I'm almost ready to post that poblano cupcake recipe (it gets a post all of its own because they were that good). When I get around to doing that, I'll tag someone else for the MEME.


1. Who did you spend at least two hours with today?
Everyone in my digital graphics class... it's so sad; I have no time for a real social life now!

2. What do you look forward to most in the next six weeks?
Graduating! And then figuring out where to go and what to do with my life!

3. Who was the last person you called?
My mom; I was baking cookies and wanted to talk while I was rolling balls of Chinese almond cookies (this week's BAKE MY DAY...hint, hint)

4. What were you doing at 12am last night?
Working on a poster in the art lab

5. What did you fear was going to get you as a child?
Lots of things! Mostly a burglar under my bed. Or under the car when I was stepping in. (I'm still afraid of that, to be honest. At night when I'm alone I can't get into my car unless I first check underneath it [from a distance!] and inside it through the windows) Paranoid? Maybe...

6. When did you last see your mom?
A few weeks ago when I went home for the weekend. My health insurance it about to expire when I graduate, so I had to go to the doctor.

7. What are you wearing right now?
My bathrobe; I just got out of the shower.

8. Where is your favorite place to be?
This week it has been my apartment. Maybe because it's cold outside? Or maybe because I know I'm moving soon. But I just want to stay home and bake and read and sleep all day. Oh, if only...

9. Where is your least favorite place to be?
In my 8:00 TR class. I'm just so sick of school and I don't know why I ever decided to study English. I enjoy reading, but 4 years of writing the same paper about post-colonialism or marxist feminism is killing me! It's interesting, yes, but I'm ready to talk about something new. (Gosh, I feel like I'm being a little complainy in this MEME...I'm not a negative person!).

10. Where would you go if you could go anywhere?
London! I miss it everyday and I would do almost anything to be able to go back there. Stupid immigration and tier system nonsense!

11. Where do you think you’ll be in 10 years?
Maybe San Francisco or Portland (that would be nice!); in an apartment with a kitten and hopefully several very dear friends close by.

12. What was the last thing that really made you laugh?
I can't remember; I laugh all the time (too often, in fact; sometimes I feel like it's cheap because I laugh so much). Earlier I was talking with a friend who had to take a ridiculous survey to apply for a job and that was pretty funny.

13. What cities/towns/villages have you lived in?
born in San Antonio, TX on vacation
Houston, TX
Louisville, KY
Herndon, VA
Houston, TX
Abilene, TX
Oxford, UK
Abilene, TX
Portland, OR (only for a summer)
Abilene, TX
London, UK
Abilene, TX

14. Are you a social person?
I'm about 50/50 introvert/extrovert. I love hanging out with friends and sometimes I feel full of energy and I just want to have giant dance parties every night. But other times I just want to be alone or with only one other person, curled up with a book or the first season of Peep Show (or Wallace and Gromit, if I'm feeling it) and a good cup of tea.

15. What do you like about winter?
I agree with A Place For Us about the hot chocolate and soups, and especially about hibernation and rest! I love taking a break from school (even if I am working still). I love holiday smells and baking. I love shorter days and the way the colors look different outside (even if we don't have a very picturesque winter in Texas). I love bundling up in tons of layers, and I love that it finally isn't hot and that we don't have mosquitoes!
