Fill in the Blank Friday

1. If you could change the color of your eyes, would you?
I'd go with a more intense version of the forest green/hazel ones I have. I like the color of my eyes in direct sunlight or when I cry. They become a much more vibrant green. I also think Kate Bosworth's eyes are beautiful. It would be cool to have heterochromia. Blue eyes are my favorite on other people but since my hair is so bright, I think the color eyes I have complements it better.

2. Do you prefer to have more women or men as friends?
I love to have close friendships with women. Two of my best friends are my sister and cousin. My other best friends I've had for many years. But when it comes to casual friendships, I love to hang out with guys. They're lots of fun and just easy to be around. I don't deal with pettiness and "drama" that a lot of girls like to create. Guys are simple- let's go have some beers and enjoy ourselves.

3.  What is a negative personality characteristic that you possess?
I don't need reassurance from other people and like to spend a significant amount of time alone. I prefer to hang out with people one-on-one. I don't necessarily think these are negative attributes but people like to feel needed and loved. I show my appreciation in other ways. While I'm a stage negative 5 clinger, when people really do need someone, I've been told I'm the first person they go to.

4. Share a painting or other piece of art that means something to you.

5. Which fictional character from television, film or literature do you most relate to?
My thinking, writing style and sense of humor is on par with Chelsea Handler (circa "My Horizontal Life") but she's not fictional. I've always said I'm a cross between Quinn and Daria Morgendorffer from Daria. I really loved that show when I was younger (still think it's hilarious). I felt like both characters represented different sides of my personality.

6. Do you tend to get jealous easily?
Not at all. I take after my parents in that regard. I've never seen my Mother be envious of anyone in all my life. Of course, I love nice things and want them for myself but it comes from a place of appreciation for the beauty of it. When I see others who are successful, I'm happy for them; I don't resent them for it. I look at it as motivation to get there myself.

7. What is the first thing people notice about you when they meet you in person?
That I'm a redhead, of course.

8. Where are some places you'd like to travel to this year?
I'm going to Florida next month. I'd like to take a few weekend trips over the summer to New York, maybe Ohio, the beach. I'm considering going to Chicago for Lollapalooza. In the fall, I'll probably go to West Virginia (little college reunion, not far) and one of the away Steeler games (Dallas?). I'd also like to visit one of my best friends who recently moved to Nashville with her husband. These are realistic trips. If I could go anywhere, I'd be on a plane to Europe tonight.

9. Do you volunteer or donate to charity?
I'm a "big sister" with Big Brothers Big Sisters. I donate a lot of things to the Vietnam Veterans of America, Goodwill and the nursing home my Mom works at. I was always taught you're not supposed to discuss volunteer work but if it gives someone else an idea to help out, then I guess it's not too bad.

10. What's an embarrassing song or album that you own?

The Titanic soundtrack. Yes, I'm ready to go back to Titanic! I listened to this non-stop in 7th grade.

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!
