    Your Deviant Art ID

    I use my dA for my photography! I haven't been too active on their lately due to busyness, but I will get back to it soon!

    Best Star Trek Captain

    Janeway is my favorite - she leads the crew through adversity so well, but Picard is a close second. They are really pretty much tied in my mind, at this point.

    Holes(movie)

    Enjoyed both the movie and the book. Louis Sachar has such interesting ideas. He was one of my favorite authors when I was younger.

    Card or Cash?

    I pay with cards almost all the time. I like being able to track my spending that way, and I like the rewards. Cash has a way of just disappearing without any accountability. I do try to always have cash for vendors that don't take cards, though.

    How Much Time Do You Plan to Spend at the Marathon?

    Pretty sure he'll be involved on some level! :)

    How Much Time Do You Plan to Spend at the Marathon?

    Aww :) I'll be watching for you! I will be participating heavily this year (again). Missing the first day due to travel, but I will be there :)

    Did You or Do You Keep a Diary?

    I kept one for years. Most of the time, it was full of frivolous details, but I did occasionally venture into deeper territory. As I got older, I started blogging and that helped me chronicle the day to day details for years. I miss journaling...it was therapeutic for me. One of these days I...

    Which Book Are You Currently Reading?

    I just started reading the Gunslinger by Stephen King, the first book in the Dark Tower series. I'm not sure how I feel about it. It's creepy in a lot of ways, but I am starting to get interested in it. Not sure I will continue through the series or not, yet.

    To Have Siblings or Not

    My siblings were 14 and 17 years older than me. I spent most of my childhood feeling like an only child most of the time. I missed out on the good parts of having siblings, and always wished that I a sister my age. Caleb has 6 siblings, and now I feel like I know exactly what I missed out on...

    Are You Independent?

    Definitely financially independent. Emotionally, I get a lot of my support from my family. When I moved out, it was a big stepping stone to understanding how to be independent and figure out my problems for myself, but there's still nothing like a good chat with mom when I need clarity on something!

    Clocks - Digital or Analog?

    I use both kinds of clocks. I prefer analog for my wrist watch and on the wall, but digital for my alarm clock. If the whole world was one way or another, it wouldn't bother me. I do like how analog clocks help you to visualize how much time has gone by.

    What Are Your Opinions On Tablet Computers?

    I don't have a tablet, but have looked into them every few months. If I did more art, I would like a Wacom tablet, but I would not use it enough to justify it at this time. If a tablet had more space and power, I would buy one to do photo editing on. Someday in the future... I would like a...

    How Did 9/11 Impact You?

    I was in the 8th grade. The school day was pretty worthless, as most of our attention was taken by watching the news and learning about things we had never considered before. I went to DC and NYC 6 months later, and it was pretty eye opening to see Ground Zero and see the Pentagon damaged, etc...

    Which Cracker Do You Prefer?

    Ritz and saltines are my favorite crackers by a long shot. I enjoy others, but those two are my go-to crackers.

    How Important is Reading to You?

    Reading is one of my favorite hobbies...I don't have enough time for it and I have so many books that I want to read. Maybe someday I will have more time to read!

    Do You Show Others Zelda Dungeon?

    Many of my friends and family know about ZD now...It first came up when people would ask about our hobbies. Caleb's main hobby is, of course, video games and all that goes along with the website. When we made plans to see Mases for the first time 3 years ago, the cat got let out of the bag, so...

    When You Listen to a Song, Do You Get the Desire to Start Singing Along to It?

    At home or in the car, I definitely do. Otherwise, I keep quiet 99% of the time. But it's hard if it's a song I really like! :)

    Is There Any Place You Refuse to Travel To?

    I want to travel pretty much everywhere, but at this time, I am not interested in traveling to some of the more volatile countries just because they have a higher threat level - Iraq, Afghanistan, Colombia, Indonesia, etc. If I ever had the opportunity and reason to go, it's likely I still...

    How Do You Say Mases?

    "Mahseestah" - my choice. Apparently we might need to have a time set aside at the next marathon to discuss the correct pronunciation live since it is a hot topic! :)

    How Well Do You Know Your Neighborhood? How Far Do You Travel Within Your Area?

    As a child, there were two other houses on my street and I got to know the kids pretty well. Since I have moved out, and live on my own, I don't know my neighbors well at all. They are all in different stages of life than I am, so I don't have much in common with them outside of being neighbors...

    Do You Have A Best Friend?

    As a child, I had a best friend, certainly. As I grew older and switched schools, then graduated and started living life, I have come to the conclusion that I have a lot of best friends, not any one person. I consider Caleb to be my best friend nowadays. I spend the most time with him, and share...

    What Will You Do For The 2013 Summer?

    Working! I plan to start a garden this summer, so I'm excited about that. I have a couple friends coming to visit too, so that will be thrilling. I also have a tentative trip planned, so that will be a highlight as well if it happens! Summer is my favorite time of the year, as there is so much...

    When Do You Take Showers/baths?

    Every evening after work. The time varies, but I generally try to shower soon after getting home. It gives my hair adequate time to dry before bedtime. I like not having to get up any earlier to shower in the morning before work.

    What Other Tabs Do You Have Open?

    I usually have 10-20 pinned tabs at all times, usually of things that I need to do or keep an eye on for several days. I've gotten better about the number of tabs I have open. Used to be, I had 20 to 30 open all the time, and it frequently crashed the browser or made the whole computer sluggish...

    How Do You Keep Track of Tasks?

    I used to be able to memorize my tasks, but life has become too busy for that to work for me anymore. I usually write things down on sticky notes. When I'm home, I have a to-do list at my desk, but it sometimes gets buried under the clutter on my desk. I kept a planner part of the time in...

    Roller Coasters?

    I have never been a fan of roller coasters, unfortunately. Mild ones that are more "kiddish" in nature are ok, but anything for adults scares me and makes me a bit motion sick. I've always wanted to enjoy riding them, as my friends all loved them growing up, but I just couldn't do it. Now that...

    How Often Do You Use Your Pockets?

    Everyday. I keep my phone and my keys in my jeans pockets all the time. I also write notes on sticky notes for myself at work sometimes, and those find their way to my pocket too. I keep money/cards/ID in my pocket sometimes if I will be using it frequently during a day - like in an airport or...

    Your Opinion on Dubstep?

    I could do without dubstep, honestly. I like that it has a nice beat to it, something that would be fun to listen to in the car, but I have heard very little that I like, much less can tolerate :( I gave it a chance, but I don't plan to listen to it in the future.

    That Canadian Thread

    :) It's beautiful here. And cold is a relative term...it feels pretty comfortable to me :) But really, the area I live in, our winter is a lot milder than Chicago and places in the Midwest. Yukon reminds me of Alaska quite a bit. It's serene and quiet and the scenery is very similar to Alaska in...

    How Far Have You Travelled?

    The farthest south I have been is to Mexico City, Mexico. The farthest East would be to NYC and Washington DC. Someday I would like to make it to Europe or South America, but that probably won't be for a while!

    How Often Do You Straighten Your Hair?

    I'm too busy/too lazy to straighten or curl my hair except on special occasions. I like the effect when I do either style, and I really should do it more often, for something different. Thanks for the inspiration :)

    Graduation!!!

    I graduated from high school in 2006 and college in 2011. Both were wonderful, but college was especially nice, knowing that I was finished forever! High school graduation was great, but it was also bittersweet, knowing I wouldn't see most classmates rarely, if ever, again :(

    Gender Majorities Among Your Friends

    I pretty much exclusively hung out with girls until high school, and then I found some guy friends that I liked hanging out with. Nowadays, I hang out with my girl friends unless we are doing things as couples, then it's pretty much even :)

    That Canadian Thread

    There are days when Alaska feels like an honorary Canadian territory, since the US doesn't seem to claim us a lot of the time =/ I've driven through Yukon and British Columbia about 20 times, but it's been about 10 years since the last trip. I'd like to do it again. Both are beautiful places...

    How Many Times in Your Live Did You Move? And What Do You Like/dislike About Moving?

    I have moved twice - out of my parents' house into an apartment, and then into a house. I don't like the stress of not knowing when the new place is available and all that goes with it. I don't like moving all the stuff and packing it and unpacking. But I do enjoy figuring out where things can...

    Shopping Online or in Physical Stores?

    My location does not have a lot of store available to me, and any that are available, the merchandise is very expensive. For that reason alone, I prefer online shopping. There is very little that I will pay more for to have right away, versus waiting several days for it to get shipped. Amazon...

    Do You Use Emoticons Much?

    I use them constantly. It's probably a bad thing, but I find it easier to be concise in what I am typing, and using emoticons to show the feelings. Tone is lost when it isn't spoken, so emoticons help me clarify what I am saying, a lot of the time.

    What Do You Do Before You Fall Asleep?

    I prefer to read a book for a while to help me wind down. I don't have to, but it does make me sleepy and thus, makes it easier to fall asleep.

    How Much Time on a Typical Day Do You Spend Idle?

    Once I moved out, I discovered that I was never bored...there was always something to do, whether it's cleaning the house, paying bills or cooking or running errands. I do a lot of internet surfing in my "idle" time, I suppose, but most of it has a purpose on some level. When I start watching...

    Cats or Dogs

    I prefer cats. They are low maintenance and I don't have to walk them several times a day. I can leave them at home all day and they won't tear the house apart in anxiety. And I love to cuddle with them! I don't mind dogs, but I have never been much of a dog person.

    Hardback or Softback Novels?

    I have come to appreciate hardback more due to their durability and how pretty they are. But paperbacks are cheaper and smaller. It's hard to win, because all of those qualities are important to me! I have started to buy hardbacks if I know that I will reread the book multiple times, ensuring...

    What Age Do You Consider Old?

    It's all relative to how old you are, as well as how the "older" people around you act. I used to think 30 was old, now it's scary how close I am to that age myself. My parents are getting close to age 70 (66 and 68), and I don't consider them old yet, but I suppose they are getting there. I do...

    Favourite Force of Nature?

    Most of the disastrous forms of nature scare me, so I'd prefer they don't exist. As for my "favorite"...erupting volcanoes are pretty awesome. The ones that have erupted here in Alaska during my lifetime have been pretty harmless, but they have been a bit inconvenient because of ashfall. I...
