Here are the rules:
1. Leave me a comment saying, “Interview me.”
2. I will respond by asking you 5 questions of a very personal nature.
3. You will update your LJ with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this and an offer to interview someone else in the post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them 5 questions.
1) Describe a dream you had once that you’ve never forgotten and will probably never forget. My sister, her friend Kim, and I are hanging out in some neighborhood that is vaguely ours. I ask about one house, and they tell me it’s the witch’s house. I think they’re full of it, because they’re older and like to make fun. They dare me to go over and look in the window, and I do. I see nothing, and just as I’m leaving, a woman passes by the window. A huge shiver goes down my spine. It’s the witch! She grabs me. I scream, and her claw-like fingers are really creepy. Kim and Mimi scream, “Bob!” Bob is the principal of my elementary school, so of course he would be the one to save me, right? Weird. He comes and saves me. Then, pop! The three of us are in the woods, and Bob and the witch have disappeared. The trees are so gigantic I can’t look over them. Then I realize they’re not trees. They’re gigantic statues of every character from “The Wizard of Oz.” Then I wake up.
2) Where do you see yourself in ten years? There’s a difference between where I want to be and where I probably will be. Let’s say this. In ten years I’ve published a few books. I’ve been married a couple years and I have maybe two kids. Or one. Two Master’s degrees, maybe working on a third or on a doctorate. I’ll probably, sadly, be working in the education field, which I’ve always said I’ll never do. Or, hopefully, in a non-profit, museum, or creative setting, doing some with youth and the arts.
3) If you were to write an autobiography on your life up until now, what would you call it? Life in Writing.
4) Name one big thing you have to look forward to in the next few weeks, months or years. Falling in love.
5) Which person, with whom you have lost contact for any reason (death included), do you wish you could get back in touch with? Is it fair to say my birthfather, even though I have no idea who he is, if he’s alive, and if he knows I exist? Actually, in all likelihood he has no idea I exist, but the other two questions still stand.
