MySpace Freak

I was going through some of my older songs and stumbled upon the lyrical masterpiece that is "MySpace Freak" by C-SIDE. Ah, MySpace. I spent countless hours filling out those ridiculous surveys and posting my answers to the virtual bulletin board. Yes, I was that girl. This left me feeling a bit nostalgic. I realize most people don't care to read someone's answers but it's more of an introspection thing for me. On to the randomness...

The Basics

Name: Krista Selene Roman

Age: 25 (02/01/1986)

Month of birth: February

Any Siblings? An older sister, Natalie (27)

Parents still married? Yes. They were high school sweethearts. Been together since Halloween 1964.

Occupation: Currently handling PR for authors with ambitions of having my own books published.

Do you like your job? I've only been doing it for a couple months. So far, I really love the situation I'm in. Before this, I was a TV news writer and in college I was a reporter/host/producer for TV News and our college radio station.

Any pets? Shih-tzu, Ireland (1), Cat Sasha (3), and I found a kitten the other day, Katarina... not sure what's going to happen with her. I love all animals. I feed the birds, deer and squirrels.

Hair color: Red... the color of a brand new penny. Very vibrant. Yes, all natural.

Eye color: I never know how to answer this. Dark green/hunter green/hazel?

Shoe size: 8.5

Height: 5'4"

Any Tattoos? No

Any Piercings? Just my ears (one in each).

Current mood: Relaxed

Current wardobe choice: Maxi dress, so comfortable

What are you listening to? "Stellar" by Incubus

Who did you last speak with on the phone? My mother. I'm not really a phone person.

What do you currently smell like? Water (does it even have a scent?)... I've been spritzing myself all day to stay cool. Maybe a bit of Guilty by Gucci as well.

Astrological Sign: Aquarius (Sun)- I'm quadruple Aquarian, Scorpio (Moon), Cancer (Rising). I love astrology and could tell you a ton of things that would either fascinate you or convince you that I'm weird.


Movie you watched: Vicky Cristina Barcelona

Magazine you looked at: Harper's Bazaar

Thing you ate: Chocolate-covered strawberry (with some vino)... delicious

Book you read: Currently reading When You Are Engulfed in Flames by David Sedaris

T.V. show you watched: My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding on TLC. I have no words.

Time you cried: I can't recall. I cry pretty easily.

Took a shower: About an hour ago but I already feel like taking another one

Got a real letter (a.k.a Snail Mail): Yesterday. I LOVE real letters. I'm always the first to write to friends, family or my pen-pal in Germany.

CD you bought: Bon Iver by Bon Iver

What is/was....

The best thing to happen to you today? I'm pretty sure I saw a pink UFO. Okay, it might have been an elaborate firework. I'm really not sure. I captured it on tape but I don't want the naysayers to spoil my hopes and imagination.

Your first vehicle: Black '95 Toyota Celica GT "Virginia" or "Ginny"

Your favorite quote: "The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams." -Eleanor Roosevelt

You bedtime (on average): I'm a night owl. If I didn't have to get up early for work, I'd choose to stay up 'til atleast 4 am. I get all my creativity after midnight. But it's usually around 2:30 am during the week.

Your best trait/characteristic: I'm very compassionate/caring.

Your worst trait/characteristic: I am content spending a significant time on my own. I can be introverted to the point where I forget to check in with friends. I'll drop whatever I'm doing and listen when they need me but I'm rarely the person to pick up the phone for no reason.

Collect anything: When I was little, I loved to collect stickers and rocks. I have a lot of makeup, nail polish and handbags.

Attend high school or college: North Catholic for high school, West Virginia University for college

Make good grades: I didn't apply myself as much as I could have. I prefered to do most of my learning outside of the classroom. In grade school I got straight As, high school Bs and Cs and in college I did very well in my major but let a lot of the other stuff slip away because I was concerned with making memories. I make good Jeopardy! scores if that counts ;)

Have You Ever....

Broke a bone? No

Cheated on a test/exam: Probably

On reciting the Pledge of Allegiance in schools: I think it's fine but shouldn't be mandatory.

On homosexuals in the military: Are we still debating this? What century are we living in?
