Fill in the Blank Friday

Favorite quotations:
 "The fututre belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams." -Eleanor Roosevelt
 "It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye." -The Little Prince (Antoine de Saint-Exupery)

Name your first son and first daughter:
Roman & Vivian. I want at least one of each.

2 random facts about yourself:
-I was three days old before my parents decided on my name.
-When I'm content and in a cozy environment, I inadvertently wiggle my toes.

Favorite feature of a member of the opposite sex:
Eyes, smile, hair, bone structure, hands, voice, neck, arms, lower V...

If you could travel anywhere, where to?:
Ireland, Italy, France, Switzerland... pretty much all over Europe, Egypt, Australia, All 50 States, Outer Space... It's an endless list.

What’s your idea of a perfect date?:
With the person you love... it's a cliche but if you're with the right person it doesn't even matter what you're doing. That being said, the ideal date for me would be exploring a foreign city- listen to music, stroll the city, do a little bit of shopping, have deep conversations, ride a Ferris wheel, talk to a palm reader, meet a poet, share a bottle of wine under the stars... basically describing the movie Before Sunrise.

If you had a superpower, what would it be?:
The power to communicate with souls who have passed on. I would love to help bring comfort to people who are lonely and grieving (especially for families who have missing children or parents; to not know must be the worst feeling in the world).

The drink you would order at a bar:
Usually a beer. I love just about all of them but my favorites are Chimay Blue and Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA.

What is something that you really don’t like:
Cold, boring, arrogant, closed-minded, rude people.

If you could change your name, what would it be?:
My Mom wanted to name me Selene but my Dad only agreed to it being my middle name. I use my full name as much as possible. I'm more of a Selene than a Krista but it all works together I suppose.

You can only eat one thing for the rest of your life. What is it?:

What's the sweetest thing someone has done for you?
In 7th grade, a boy wrote me a poem and read it to me in front of the entire school... teachers and all. He basically asked me out on a "date" and to be his girlfriend. It was sweet but I only liked him as a friend. I felt really bad about letting him down. He completely put me on the spot.

Which fictional character would you most like to go out to dinner with?
Roger Sterling from Mad Men. He's pretty smooth and makes me laugh. Plus, he loves a redhead.

What's your least "politically correct" opinion?
I'm strongly pro-choice.

If you were an element on the periodic table, what would you be and why?
Kr- Krypton. My initials are KR. I like that it means "the hidden one." Wikipedia says Krypton is used in lighting and photography which are two things I appreciate.

Are you nostalgic for the past?
I loved my childhood and have great memories from both high school and college. I often think of the way things used to be but I'm always optimistic and looking forward to the future. The best is yet to come...

What is a song that describes your personality or life situation?
"One Headlight" by The Wallflowers immediately comes to mind. I'm sure there are more appropriate songs out there but this is my best friend and I's "theme song."

Has anyone ever made you a mixed tape/CD? If so, what was a song on it?
Yes, "Science of Fear" by The Temper Trap. They had just come out and this is how I first discovered them. Unfortunately, the guy who made me the 8-disc compilation set (yes, really) had a girlfriend in another country (don't they all).

Have you ever had your heart truly broken?
Yes, a long time ago. As much as it hurt, it gave me a broader perspective on life. I know that sounds pompous but whenever I listen to music or watch a sad film, I can relate. Some of the best works of art were created from the minds of people who felt empty inside.

If you could only see in black & white with one additional color, what would you choose and why?
Blue. Have you seen what planet we live on? The sky, stars, water, flowers, eyes...

My photo
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States
I'm living life in beautiful Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I hold a journalism degree from West Virginia University. I have worked in television news, fashion marketing, PR, and cosmetic sales. My love for writing and sharing with the world my various passions is strong. One of my many ambitions is to be published and continue creating in the fields of digital and print media, literature and film. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, going to concerts, reading, following Pittsburgh sports and traveling as often as possible. Some of my favorite things include beauty, style, architecture, books, tarot and astrology, thrifting and my shih-tzu, Ireland. I’m engaged to the love of my lifetimes and we look forward to starting our next chapter together. If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you!
