39. Are you able to kill? Under what circumstances do you find killing to be acceptable or unacceptable? I think I would be if someone would do something bad to my kids, husband or parents. Bad people being killed is absolutely acceptable for me, unacceptable when good people are killed.

40. In your opinion, what is the most evil thing any human being could do? There's so much evil in this world.. :cry: but what gets me the most is torturing and abusing other people (especially children..) & animals

41. Do you believe in the existence of soul mates and/or true love? Yes, I absolutely do as I have found mine.

42 What do you believe makes a successful life? I think you have a successful life if you're good and honest to other people, especially your family.

43. How honest are you about your thoughts and feelings (i.e. do you hide your true self from others, and in what way)? I'm quite honest, I might sometimes hold back my thoughts, but that's mostly to avoid conflicts.

44. Do you have any biases or prejudices? Yes, I'm definately biased when it comes to my children and my husband. :wink: As to prejudices, I try not to, though it's hard sometimes..

45. Who or what, if anything, would you die for (or otherwise go to extremes for)? My children and/or my husband!


Part 5: Relationships With Others

46. In general, how do you treat others (politely, rudely, by keeping them at a distance, etc.)? Does your treatment of them change depending on how well you know them, and if so, how? I'm very polite but tend to keep people I don't know at a distance. It definately depends on how well I know them! The better I know them, the more open I am.

47. Who is the most important person in your life, and why? My husband and my children. They're the center of my life.

48. Who is the person you respect the most, and why? My husband. It'd be too long to explain, why. He's just a wonderful human being.

50. Do you have a spouse or significant other? If so, describe this person. Yes, I have a husband (I mentioned him quite often already, didn't I? :lol: ) He's a US Navy cop and the best person I've ever met! He's honest, loyal to his family and friends, helpful (he's the type who'd help an old granny across the street), protective... I could go on forever, but you get the picture already. :wink:

58. Have you ever been in love? If so, describe what happened. I've been in love 2 times in my life. The first time was the typical first love.. it didn't work out, simply because both of us were too young (age of 18-20). The 2nd time is still lasting with my husband.

59. How close are you to your family? My kids and my husband are my life. Other than that I am quite close to my parents and also to my MIL.

60. Have you started your own family? If so, describe them. If not, do you want to? Why or why not? Yes. I've got a 5.5 y.o. girl who's a handful as well as a 2 y.o. son who's my little angel. Thankfully he's much less of a handful than my daughter ever was/is! :lol:

61. Who would you turn to if you were in desperate need of help? My husband.

62. Do you trust anyone to protect you? Who, and why? Again, my husband.

63. If you died or went missing, who would miss you? Besides my kids and my husbands I'd say my parents.

64. Do you tend to argue with people, or avoid conflict? Definately avoiding conflict!

65. Do you tend to take on leadership roles in social situations? Nope, I rather stand in the background.

66. Do you like interacting with large groups of people? Why or why not? No, not really. I'm more of a loner who prefers the 'sanctuary' of home. Having a good book to read or surfing online -or making soap :wink: - gives me much more 'peace'.

67. Do you care what others think of you? Not really. People who really know me, know who and how I am and I personally can look into the mirror and be happy with myself.

Part 6: Likes And Dislikes

68. What is/are your favorite hobbies and pastimes? Reading, doing yoga or pilates, working out in general. Crafting like sewing or making soap.

71. What, if anything, do you like to read? Thrillers, suspense

72. What is your idea of good entertainment (consider music, movies, art, etc.)? Watching a funny comedy or exciting thriller. I also like typical 'chick flicks' every once in a while. On tv my favorite shows are 'Hell's Kitchen', 'Top Chef' and basically everything on History or Discovery channel.

73. Do you smoke, drink, or use drugs? If so, why? Do you want to quit? Unfortunately right now I still smoke, yes. :oops: (Not inside the house or around the kids though!) I've been trying to quit many times (not including the pregnancies as those 2 times were the only times I had no problems doing so!) and I'm planning on really quitting for good soon. I do enjoy a glass of red wine or beer every once in a while.

74. How do you spend a typical Saturday night? Cuddled up on the couch with my Hubby, watching a movie or a show or simply having a nice conversation with him. Reading a book comes second.

75. What makes you laugh? My kids, funny movies. Even things like the preview of the Simpsons movie with Homer and the 'spiderpig' crack me up! :lol:

76. What, if anything, shocks or offends you? Hmm.. don't know, really..

77. What would you do if you had insomnia and had to find something to do to amuse yourself? I'd probably read a book (I pretty much read 1 within 1-2 days anyway) or watch a good movie/tv.

78. How do you deal with stress? Right now not too well, I smoke... When I can, I love to work out, do cardio. It really releases my frustration, when I'm kicking butt on the elliptical :wink:

79. Are you spontaneous, or do you always need to have a plan? It depends. I prefer to have a plan.

80. What are your pet peeves? Oh there are so many. It goes from people who don't wash their hands after having used the toilet to sucking up a stuffy nose, toddlers with a runny nose where the parents are right there and don't wipe it off... The list is long! :lol:


Part 7: Self Images And Etc.

81. What is your greatest strength as a person? I put my own needs behind everybody elses. At least that goes for my family.

82. What is your greatest weakness? Not sure if it's a 'weakness' per se, but I'm like an elephant, I can't forgive and forget certain things.

83. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? My teeth! I'd looove a straight row of white 'pearls'!

84. Are you generally introverted or extroverted? Introverted.

85. Are you generally organized or messy? Organized!

86. Name three things you consider yourself to be very good at, and three things you consider yourself to be very bad at. I'm a good listener, cook & baker and I'm fairly open minded.
I'm not very patient, I give up easily, I'm definately not good with HTML codes :lol:


87. Do you like yourself? Yes.

88. What are your reasons for being an adventurer (or doing the strange and heroic things that RPG characters do)? Are your real reasons for doing this different than the ones you tell people in public? (If so, detail both sets of reasons...) I don't think I'm an adventurer.

89. What goal do you most want to accomplish in your lifetime? Raising my kids to good & honest people.

90. Where do you see yourself in 5 years? I know I'll be in Sicily, Italy. :D

91. If you could choose, how would you want to die? Just fall asleep and never wake up again.

92. If you knew you were going to die in 24 hours, name three things you would do in the time you had left. Oh gosh, at first I'd hop into a plane and fly over to my parents to see them one more time, especially since I haven't seen them since 3 years now.
Next I'd write letters to my kids and tell them how I feel about them and what it meant to me having them in my life and being their mom.
Last I'd like a one-on-one time with my husband, just enjoying his presence and feeling the love we have for eachother.



93. What is the one thing for which you would most like to be remembered after your death? Being a good mom and wife.

94. What three words best describe your personality? Honest, loyal, loner.

95. What three words would others probably use to describe you?It'd depend on how well they know me. :wink:
