I Made A Mistake And Took A Myspace Survey

It's been a slow day and I made the mistake of googling old Myspace surveys. Remember when those were popular? I made the even bigger mistake of filling one out in its entirety. You can read it and my answers below, but I don't recommend it. I'm posting it here more for self-preservation purposes and because I'm trying to update my blog more often and also to make myself feel like it wasn't a total waste of life to spend as much time as I did on the answers.

My Current Life

1 What was the highlight of your week?
I got some cute socks in the mail. I already hate this quiz for making me realize that was the highlight of my week.

2 Whose car were you in last?
Mine

3 When is the next time you will kiss someone?
I don't have any plans to kiss anyone as of now, but I'd french the next person who brings me a pizza.

4 What color shirt are you wearing?
Navy blue

5 How long is your hair?
Buzzed

6 Are you good looking?
I could write a whole entry on just this question. I don't like questions like this because I think they plant little seeds in our minds that we should constantly be judging our own appearance. Anyway, people who are good-looking (by society's standards) and know it and talk about it are usually my least favorite people. All that being said, no, I don't think I'm good-looking by society's standards. One of my last google searches was to see if I could get plastic surgery for free if a med student did it.

7 Last movie you watched?
A Chinese movie from 1994 called Ermo.

8 Who were you with?
Alone? It was Netflix.

9 Last thing you ate?
A dark chocolate Hershey's kiss.

10 Last thing you drank?
Cranberry juice mixed with water

11 When was the last time you had your heart broken?
Probably when Futurama was canceled the last time around.

12 Who came over last?
Probably my bff, Elizabeth, but I imagine that was ages ago. We usually hang out elsewhere.

13 Are you happy right now?
Man, this quiz was a fucking mistake.

14 What did you say last?
I spoke that last question aloud while gazing reflectively out the window.

15 Where is your phone?
Beside me, on my desk.

16 What color are your eyes?
Green, with a ring of poopy brown closer to the middle.

17 Are you left-handed?
No

18 Spell your name without vowels:
Jsph Brdsng

19 Do you have any pets?
There's a barking squirrel that stays outside my house but I don't think that qualifies because I don't feed it.

20 Favorite Vacation?
Probably VidCon 2012 and 2013

21 What do you dislike currently?
Responding to business-related emails

22 What are you listening to?
How Do They Do It? is on the TV in the background

23 If you could have one thing right now what would it be?
Either infinite wisdom or immortality, but only immortality if I had nice skin forever, too.

24 What is your favorite scent?
Old Spice deodorant and dead skunks, but not mixed together

25 Who makes you happiest?
I typed "money" but then I saw it was "who" and not "what." The J-pop group, Perfume, makes me pretty happy.

26 What were you doing at midnight last night?
Let's see...that was Friday night, so probably putting on a beauty mask and watching Bob's Burgers on Netflix.

27 When is your birthday?
Jan. 27th

28 Who has the same phone as you?
I don't fucking know. Probably tons of people. It's an LG G2.

29 Last time you went swimming in a pool?
Last summer at Greg's house in Arizona

30 Do you read your horoscope?
I used to get it on my phone every day, but it stopped arriving a couple months ago. Now I'm just too lazy to look it up.

31 Where was the last place you bought something?
Online. Probably eBay. Probably something I don't need from China.

32 How do you feel about your hair right now?
Meh, it's low-maintenance, so I can't complain. I don't think about it.

33 Do you bite your nails?
No, I have amazing nails. I feel like I'm allowed to brag a little about that because they're pretty much my only good feature.

34 Do you have any expensive jewelry?
My most expensive accessory is probably a Sailor Moon watch from China that I'm sure was $7 or less.

35 Do you wear any jewelry?
No, unless phone charms count, and I don't think they do. I usually don't wear anything on my wrists because it draws attention to how skeletal they are. I think I wore a gun ring in one of my rap videos once. If I were extremely rich, I'd probably wear diamond-studded dollar sign necklaces every day.

36 Myspace or facebook?
I wonder how long ago this quiz was made.

37 How fast have you driven a car?
Either 100 or 110 mph on an empty road just to see if I could. The car was old and started to smell like burning so I stopped.

38 Have you ever smoked?
Yes, senior year in high school. Just to feel cool with some friends I had at the time. I think I only actually inhaled properly once, though, and I felt like I was going to die so I never did it again.

39 What was or is your favorite subject in school?
English

40 Do you have Verizon?
YES, how the hell did you know?

41 What type of boy or girl do you usually fall for?
I like really tall boys who look like they might die at any moment.

42 Do you have any hidden talents?
I can fit through a plastic clothes hanger.

43 Favorite Song?
"Bella TraiciĆ³n" by Belinda, but the song I've been obsessed with for a while now is "Galaxy Supernova" by Girls' Generation, which is also my ringtone. I wish I had eight friends so I could learn the dance. (I'd be Sooyoung, ofc.)

44 Do you like to sing at all?
Sure, doesn't everyone? Whether or not I'm good at it is a different story.

45 Dream Job?
I'm not sure I'll ever know or that it really matters.

46 Where does most of your family live?
Arkansas

47 Are you an only child or do you have siblings?
I have one older sister.

48 Would you consider yourself to be spoiled?
By American standards? No. By world standards? Probably. I think that's a very relative question. I stress about money and have a really old car that's about to die, but I have many other luxuries that people in other parts of the country or world don't have.

49 What was the first thing you thought when you woke up?
How I felt like I was in a cocoon and I never wanted to emerge.

50 Do you drink?
I actually try not to anymore. I think I've only drank once, maybe twice, in 2014?

51 Know any other languages?
I've taken Spanish, German, Chinese, and Japanese, but I am very, very, very far from fluent in any of them. I can generally translate basic Spanish and German, but I wouldn't even attempt to speak them at this point.

52 Ever write a coded message?
I have a whole journal written in code from when I was young and I have no idea what it says or how to decode it. Which is probably for the best.

53 Have you ever been IN a wedding?
I think I stood by the guestbook at my cousin's wedding when I was younger. What a lame job. As if anyone is going to steal the guestbook or try to sneakily not sign it.

54 Do you have any children?
I have a Neopet and a Tamagotchi that's been dead for about ten years.

55 Did you take a nap today?
No

56 Who has the same birthday as you?
Lewis Carroll, Mozart, Sailor Uranus, and prob a whole bunch of other people

57 Ever met anyone famous before?
I stood right beside Justin Bieber's mom for a long, long time once in 2010 outside Madison Square Garden in NYC. I was waiting for my bus back to Philly and saw a crowd by the arena so I wandered over. I had no idea who she was at the time but people kept taking photos and I later figured it out. I think she was talking to Anthony Hopkins (who was also standing beside me) about getting his niece (or someone?) into Justin Bieber's concert. But I'm not sure it was Anthony Hopkins because he was right beside me and it would've been awkward to look over. It was a weird night. Oh, and then I met Russell Tovey and Jonathan Groff on the set of Looking. Russell probably thought I was a psycho because I had my Furby, and Jonathan Groff probably wouldn't even recognize me in a criminal lineup now.

58 Do you want to be famous one day?
Not particularly, but I wouldn't reject it. It's just never been high on my list. I'd be happy if lots of people enjoyed the things I create, but I think kids these days are too obsessed with being famous, like they think it's almost owed to them or something.

59 Any Pet Peeves?
It annoys me that the author capitalized all those letters. Also, when people say "especially" like "exspecially." I also dislike metal eating utensils scraping against teeth or the sound they make when they hit a bowl.

60 Are you multitasking right now?
I'm watching TV at the same time?

61 Do you like Britney Spears?
The author of this quiz misspelled "Britney" so I had to correct it. But I prefer to call her "Godney" anyway.

62 What is your least favorite chore?
I don't mind chores, but I don't really like going to the store to get groceries.

63 Last place you drove your car?
The radio station

64 Ever been out of the country?
Canada, but that doesn't really count. If you'd told me I was still in the USA and they'd just temporarily changed the money, I'd have believed you.

65 Where were you born?
Little Rock, AR

66 Could you handle being in the military?
No.

67 What is your average cell phone bill?
I don't know.

68 Who are you thinking about right now?
I'm wondering how old the person is who made this survey, because that last question was a pretty grown-up question, but the rest sounds like a 14-year-old made this.

69 When was the last time you laughed REALLY hard?
It was probably at a TV show, like Archer or The Mindy Project.

70 How many pairs of shoes do you own?
Wayyy too many for how rarely I actually leave the house.

71 Are your toes always painted?
No

72 How many piercings do you have?
None

73 What are you doing today?
This quiz, played some Pokemon and Animal Crossing. I'll probably watch a Korean movie later.

74 Have you ever been gambling?
Yes, in Tunica and Atlantic City and then scratch cards just about everywhere. I love gambling. I went to Vegas when I was eight and the only thing that stopped me from wasting my allowance at the slots was that children weren't allowed in the casino.

75 When is the last time you updated your page?
Today. Right now. As soon as I post this.

76 Do you like rollercoasters?
I can ride them, but I don't care for them. I really, really hate wooden roller coasters, though. The harnesses usually don't fit over me very well and the last one I rode jostled me around so much it gave me bruises. Me on a roller coaster is like putting a skeleton in the dryer.

77 Have you ever been to disneyland or world?
I've been to Disneyland, but not inside the actual park. Just that outside, town-y area. I'm sure I'd enjoy it, but I also don't really care much for theme parks, so going has never been on my list of things to do.

78 Do you have a favorite cartoon character?
Pocahontas, because she didn't stay with the dude.

79 Last thing you cooked?
I don't "cook" so much as I "heat things up in the microwave that come out of the freezer."

80 How's the weather?
My phone tells me it's pretty mild today, but I don't intend on verifying that.

81 Do you e-mail?
Was this quiz made in 1996?

82 What's the stupidest thing you ever did with your cell phone?
I threw it at someone once. Naomi Campbell-style. *throws gang sign*

83 Last time you were sick?
Yesterday

84 What states have you lived in?
Arkansas, Pennsylvania, sort of New York but not really

85 Do you wish you could move?
I'm not sure what I want right now.

86 What is your dream car?
I always wanted a Mazda RX-8 like Britney had in her "Me Against the Music" video.

87 Have you ever wanted someone you can't have?
Zac Efron?

88 If you could be anywhere right now where would it be?
A bubble floating through space.

89 Are you happy with your life?
This quiz got deep. My mom always said, "You gotta pull your own happy wagon." So I try to do that.

90 What is one regret in your life?
Thinking this quiz was a good idea.
