Beauty Tag: Random Questions



1. How did you get your youtube user name?
My parents. It's just my first & middle name :)

2. If you could change your name to anything, what would it be and why?
My middle name, Selene. It's more unique and fits my personality a little better. It was going to be my first name but my Dad said it was the name of a bridge in Pittsburgh. I like to use it for my internet usernames as much as I can.

3. If you could go back in time and give your younger self advice, what would it be and why?
Hmmm. I've always been pretty sure of myself. I don't think I've changed very much since I was little. But I guess I would reinforce the importance of being yourself and not caring what others think. I wish I could get that answer today (from my future self). I'm sure I have a lot of life lessons left to learn.

4. How old were you when you first learned to blow a bubblegum bubble?
I have no clue. Probably around 5? This question is kind of lame.

5. What did you want to be when you were little?
I was always playing school and wanted to be a 1st grade teacher. As I got older, I really gravitated towards writing and the news. I wanted to be a news reporter (which is what I went to college for) or work for a fashion magazine/own a bouqtique.

6. What do you order at starbucks?
Nothing! I don't drink coffee. I don't go there.

7. What's the hardest you ever laughed?
I laugh quite easily but one instance comes to mind. I believe I was in college at the time and home for break. I was at a restaurant/diner (Eat 'N Park) with my cousin, my sister, her friend and a few others. We were there really late after leaving the bar. It was like a scene from a comedy. My cousin was drunk and proceeded to go up to the cop on duty and ask if he could take our picture- she asked him not to give her DUI because she had driven there. I only remember a few details and nothing specific but the whole situation was hilarious. A "random" person from my sister's past showed up and my drunk cousin made it unintentionally awkward for her. I don't even remember what all went down.

Another instance was in elementary school my best friend, Carley and I would sit next to each other on the bus each day. We hosted a fake talk show "The Krista & Carley Show". The premise of the show was to make fun of clunky cars that we passed and make up stories of the people who drove them. We would laugh so hard to the point of tears. We were so young yet so vain. lol.

8. If you could play any musical instrument, which would it be and why?
I'd love to play the piano because I enjoy classical music but the acoustic guitar is far more portable. It would be fun to whip one out in front of a camp fire and surprise people (that's what she said).

9. What's your favorite thing to do when you're upset?
Eat junk food, listen to good music, watch a funny movie, call a close friend.

10. What's your favorite movie?
I have a few favorites from various genres. I'd so Clueless is up there. I really think it impacted my social development- probably not for the best but it did. It's one of the reasons I'm such a girlie girl.

11. What's one food you can not live without?
French fries. They are so bad yet so good. I try to only eat them once a week now that I'm trying to drop some weight.

12. What's your favorite dessert?
French vanilla ice cream with a little bit of chocolate syrup. But I'm not a dessert person. If I go out to dinner, I'm always too full to think of eating another bite.

13. Favorite pizza topping?
Extra, extra cheese. I really like jalapenos and ranch dressing as well (on the side).

14. Would you rather have the superpower to read minds, or the superpower to be invisible?
Invisibilty! I'm a creeper like that. I'm far too sensitive to want to know what other people are thinking. Our thoughts are private for a reason.

15. What did you do for your last birthday?
My 24th birthday- I sat near the ice at the Penguins-Sabres game. My favorite player, Sidney Crosby scored a hat trick and we won! Then I went to my favorite bar. My 25th is a week away- 2/1! :)

16. If you had one personal "selfish" wish, what would it be and why?
Hmmm. Wealth- enough to live comfortably and not have to worry about work, bills, etc. When that burden is off your shoulders, you have so much more freedom to experience all of what life has to offer!
