*Personal Info*
Do you have any phobias/extreme fears? no
Do you plan for the future, or are you spur-of-the-moment? I’m constantly planning for the future, but everything ends up being spur-of-the-moment anyway =/
Are you studying for anything (and if so what/if not, its ok ^_~)? I’m starting Florida Tech in fall 2006 – going for an astrophysics major
Do you have any fetishes (and no, we don’t mean “I love shoes”)? Oh god. Long hair. It drives me wild. I also have a thing for fangs, claws, and… tall, lean bodies. The whole vampire look, basically.
Are you spiritual/religious? Nah, the only interest I take in such things is strictly philosophical. I think Taoism is awesome, however. So is Gnosticism.

*Opinions*
Abortion: Pro-choice. If a mother wants to get rid of her burden badly enough, she’ll do it whether it’s legal or illegal – might as well let a doctor help her. My mom had several abortions - in fact, I was supposed to be aborted. I hold no grudge. Anyhow, the world is over-populated as it is.
Suicide: Suicide is quite a brash idea – with time, the urge usually passes. At least, I speak from experience. The urge can persist for quite some time – but I think a person is always capable of pulling through – if they’re sober, that is. I think it’s drastic mainly because I don’t believe in any forms of afterlife. I’d rather chill here for a while until death isn’t my choice anymore. I understand some people’s lives suck a great deal more than mine and thus I cannot speak for them – maybe death is the best option for them – but it’s not the best option for me.
Stereotypes: Fine with me. I don’t judge people until I’ve had an extended conversation with them. But people can judge me all they like. Breaking stereotypes is fun. One of my closest friends thought I was an idiot for a very long time because that’s what he thinks of most chicks (and I must admit, I agree with him to a certain degree) but when we actually started talking, he was a little surprised to find out that I was “the smartest chick” he’s ever spoken to. Score. Some stereotypes are based on statistical facts – a lot, however, are misleading. I don’t want to delve too deep into this topic because frankly I don’t give a damn.
Inter racial relationships: The best things. Ever. Inter-racial offspring are beautiful. Some good genes from one background + some good genes from another race = one step closer to the perfect human. Sadly, I’m stuck with one of my kind. I can’t help it, I love him.

Drugs, alcohol and smoking: I don’t do drugs and I don’t smoke but I do drink occasionally. I do think that making these things illegal is ridiculous – a person is entitled to do whatever he or she pleases with their body. The only problem with my line of logic is that these intoxicated people can effect others’ lives negatively – like, let’s say, the generic drink and drive crash course. Thus, I stay away from junkies and druggies and stoners and such – not because I’m against their intake of drugs but because I don’t want to get involved in a stupid situation. *shrug* I like to drink alcohol in the comfort of my room – I lie down on the floor and watch the lava lamp make pretty designs on my wall. I don’t like drinking with others because everyone starts making asses of themselves and I get really quiet.
Poseurs: Heh. I’ve been called one the first two years of high school because I’m constantly switching styles. One day I’m grunge, the next I’m goth, the next I’m preppy, the next I’m all business. I suppose people don’t appreciate that (something about being a… sellout?) or don’t understand. Either way, eventually the calling everyone “poseur” craze died out and I was left alone. There are still some people calling others “poseurs” and I suppose I see what they’re talking about but I really can’t judge a person until I speak with them. So if someone desires to dress themselves in Hot Topic from head to toe, I don’t care. There was one instance, however, when a Hot Topic kid ran up to me and squealed “Ohymygosh! Are you a rocker?? Cause, like, I’m a rocker TOO!!” At first I thought she was kidding but in a couple of seconds I realized she was serious and I was left dumfounded and speechless. It was one of the few times I made a permanent judgment of a person without actually getting into a deep conversation.
Labels: Erm. Same thing I said about stereotypes. I noticed people actually like being categorized. So, whatever floats their boats.
Same-sex marriages: *shrug* don’t care. If atheists are allowed to get married, why not homosexuals? Society is weird.

*Other*
What makes you a gothic beauty?: I think it’s for you to decide.
Confess something (doesn’t have to be major): I work at Borders just for the discount.
Do you think you will be accepted? I really have no clue.

*Vanity*
