<center><div class="maintitle">what's your favourite memory?</div></center><p><div style="padding: 0 5 5 5px">
my favorite memory would have to be the time that i fell out of the cottonwood tree in the back yard of my family's homestead in california. we lived on a ranch. my brother and i would constantly challenge one another to climb the tree, but neither of us had been able to do so for as long as we could remember. one year, i believe i was all of about 7 years of age (making him roughly 12), i finally did it - and promptly fell out of the tree onto my not-so-cushioned rump. my brother was there for me, and that panic and love in his eyes that gave way to incredulousness when i began to laugh was the best memory i could ever ask for. that sibling love that you never forget truly means more than anything in the world.
</div><p><center><div class="maintitle">what are five words that describe you? explain.</div></center><p><div style="padding: 0 5 5 5px">
loyal, excitable, humorous, happy, and trusting. i have always been this way, and that's probably why i tend to get along much better with animals than i do people- animals don't judge you, they don't lie to you, they laugh with you, love with you, live with you, and are there for you whenever you need them. when i trust somebody, i trust them whole-heartedly and tend to stick with them until i've been wronged. i tend to be extremely forgiving also, which is probably more of a fault than anything else; i've been a rather lovely doormat a time or two in my life. it's not the most fun thing in the world, but i'm never involved in the drama by choice, so i must be doing something right.
</div><p><center><div class="maintitle">are you happy where you work or would you rather work elsewhere?</div></center><p><div style="padding: 0 5 5 5px">
I adore my job! i am a total animal person, as you may have noticed by my previous answer. it's probably the one place where i can be me (the crazy dog lady) and not get judged for it. i am very good at what i do, and i pride myself on being able to turn the worst dogs into perfect companions. personally, i own a doberman pinscher and a queensland heeler mix, so i have my work cut out for me.
</div><p><center><div class="maintitle">are you more of a dog person or cat person? </div></center><p><div style="padding: 0 5 5 5px">
that's a tough one; can you really compare the two? but if i had to choose, i'd pick dogs. i love cats also, but you can't exactly take your cats everywhere with you- it'd be a little bit tough to explain to the restaurant owner why there's a loud mewling sound coming from your purse.
</div><p><center><div class="maintitle">what keeps you motivated?</div></center><p><div style="padding: 0 5 5 5px">
my pets and my animals. having people that depend on me, and above all else- my goals. if i had no goals, i'd truly have nothing, and my life would be quite desolate. it's my goals and aspirations that keep me going out daily and meeting new people, my dreams of being and doing things much bigger than myself; touching other people's lives in an unchangeable way. one day i'd even like to meet a guy and fall in love, but you know, i'd be just fine with a few friends, even. right now all i have is animals.. but i'm determined to make human friends also.
</div><p><center><div class="maintitle">what is your greatest weakness?</div></center><p><div style="padding: 0 5 5 5px">
humor! the worst person in the world can make me swoon with a really good joke. it's kind of sad, really, how easily you can change the opinion i've formed of you with a good joke. i've even been known to be a sucker for really cheesy pickup lines.. i have no shame, that's for sure. but honestly, if we're talking things that can be used against me? my brother. he's my everything and the only person on this planet i'd kill for. he's been there for me through everything, and while we haven't always gotten along, he's all i have here on this earth since my parents' death.
</div><p><center><div class="maintitle">what's your favourite colour? why?</div></center><p><div style="padding: 0 5 5 5px">
blue- that's not really very specific, though, is it? blue is my favorite color because it reminds me of the sky. when i'm bored, i like to lay in the soft green grass and stare at the sky, rearranging the clouds with my mind to form new shapes and decipher their meanings. even the night sky is technically blue, a very dark shade of it but blue nonetheless. it's quite intriguing in my mind. and not only that, but i look pretty awesome in blue - not to sound conceited or anything, but it looks pretty awesome compared to my eyes.
</div><p><center><div class="maintitle">if you could live anywhere in the world, where would you go? why?</div></center><p><div style="padding: 0 5 5 5px">
i'd go back to that home in california where all of my childhood memories were formed. those were truly the best years of my life, and while i don't mind it here, i have no friends- all of my true friends were back home. one day maybe i'll feel the same way about this place, but at this point, i am so homesick and lonely that it drives me insane. thank god for my brother, or i'd be lost and in a downward spiral. listen to me ramble - i swear, i'm not usually this depressed. questions make me think, and it's hard not to discuss things you've been thinking for a long time but have never actually wanted to admit.
</div><p><center><div class="maintitle">introvert or extrovert? why?</div></center><p><div style="padding: 0 5 5 5px">
despite my claims to the contrary, i'm actually quite gregarious. i like to keep my personal life to myself, but i'd still consider myself quite the extrovert. the problem i have is that most people seem annoyed by my personality. which is fine; i know not everybody will like me. i am not shy by any means and i quite enjoy witty reparte, intelligent conversation and meeting new people. it's the keeping people in my life that really sucks.
</div><p><center><div class="maintitle">would you rather be liked or feared? why?</div></center><p><div style="padding: 0 5 5 5px">
this one is quite easy: feared. i have never really cared too much what people think of me. if they like me, great. i am a social creature and need them in my life. however, i am also very opinionated and am not afraid to speak my mind. this has lead on more than one occasion to me having to defend myself. i will never sacrifice my opinion to make someone like me. with my strong opinions, i am sure i have scared a lot of people and made them quite afraid of me.. perhaps they think i'm crazy. that doesn't bother me in the slightest.. i am nyx, after all. i was named after the goddess of darkness (thanks, mom and dad.)
