BEDA 19: Uncreative Meme
The teeny tiny hamster who runs the wheel of creativity in my brain just passed out from exhaustion and dehydration. In addition to writing for work, I spent more time than I should today trying to frantically finish and polish a short story that's presentable enough to post here. I haven't worked on fiction in such a long time and certainly never post it on the internet, but it would be nice to get some feedback. So while my poor brain hamster recovers, you get this ready-made unremarkable meme(or "Me! Me! Me!" as I like to call them) courtesy of Leah and Ellen.
What song are you currently addicted to?
I honestly haven't been listening to a great deal of music lately, but "Voice of Truth" by Casting Crowns keeps getting stuck in my head at random moments. I don't mind--it's an incredibly uplifting song.
What's your favorite season?
Autumn. Pumpkins, sweaters, hot beverages, my birthday, foliage etc. I love it even more now that I live in a place that actually has an Autumn. In San Antonio, leaves don't change color or Fall, and it's ninety degrees until November.
What's the latest movie you watched?
Big Night on our anniversary. I enjoyed it a lot.
What's the one skill you wish you had?
The ability to sing well. I hate getting all the way through the dance portion of an audition for a show, then getting cut because I cannot compete vocally with triple threats. I also wish I were better at modern. It would probably help if I actually went to modern classes more often, huh?
What's your current fandom/obsession/addiction?
The Hunger Games. And Harry Potter, of course. Always.
What's your favorite board game?
Candyland. This should probably be the tennis board game my grandpa designed, but even he can't compete with Princess Lolly.
What websites do you always visit when you go online?
I always visit Google Reader to stay updated with favorite blogs and websites. Additionally, I open my email, Twitter, and usually DanceNYC.org, Playbill.com and the site for the media agency I write for to find assignments, submit work etc.
What was the last thing you bought?
Stopped at the mini-market on my way home: organic kale, chocolate soymilk, peanut butter, and a diet ginger ale.
If you won $10,000 what would you do with it?
Pay for the outstanding portion of Graham's first semester of college, tithe some to our church, set aside a chunk for LeakyCon next summer, save whatever is leftover. Oh, and probably buy some books and an awesome new audition leotard.
Last concert you went to?
Actual concert? Probably whatever wizard rock show I last saw at the Sidewalk Cafe. I think it was Draco and the Malfoys, and Lena (The Butterbeer Experience) and others. I missed a good portion of it because of rehearsal and only stayed about thirty minutes because I'm an old lady, but it counts.
What could be one of the best things to happen to you right now?
Financial stability and a full-time dance job offer for after I graduate. And some other things I don't feel like broadcasting on the internet.
What's the last thing that made you happy?
An enjoyable, pain-free rehearsal on an amazing new piece tonight.
Do you want to learn another language?
I'm pretty proficient in Spanish, but I'd like to be better at it. It would also be helpful to learn to read Hebrew, Greek and German.
