I'll go with pet not zoo animal......cat. She loves me and I her, she's easy to care for, and I've never been without a cat except when I lived in dorms in college and a semester of grad school.

Did you ever live in a dorm?

Yeah, for two years. My first roommate was weird but my sophomore year I moved in with a friend. My freshman year was a year of eye opening experiences. Back then the legal drinking age was 18. Then I took a gap year and when I went back I lived off campus.

Do you keep in touch with anyone from your early twenties?

Just very casually on Facebook. I'm too afraid of being judged to go back to college reunions or anything so I haven't connected with most college friends.

What did you study in college? If you didn't go to college what was your favorite high school subject?

I have a degree in East Asian Languages and Area Studies with a focus on Mandarin Chinese/China. My minor was English literature...and almost Economics. My main career was in Marketing for a company whose customers are international students. Later down the line, I took several additional credits in the field of psychology, and a couple in international relations. Most of it was complementary.

Have you ever taken any type of class just for interest-sake? What was it (one)? Adult/community school, online/college course, or whatever.

I took the same creative writing class two times, years apart, at adult interest schooling. The first time i went to 1.5 of the classes, the second time to only the very first one single class. My life was in chaos the first time, right smack in the middle of a messy divorce and the second time i just discovered i have no talent and gave up. We had to write a short story from the point-of-view of a vending machine! I just had no idea what to write and the other students wrote rings around me and i hate that, i feel so stupid, so i gave up. I'm not that sorry tho, the instructor was a dingbat old lady who interrupted class to tell us about her stalker and then once more to ask for a ride home. Our adult interest schooling is very mediocre in quality, i've been stung many more times with other courses as well as i used to try and fight off my boredom with them but it was just a waste of money.

Do you find it unpleasant when people talk about their diets?

This morning i had a little packet of peaches-and-cream flavored instant oatmeal and vanilla Greek yogurt and calorie-free Pomegranate Passion Crystal Light flavored water.

If you have a pet, do you brush their teeth on a daily basis? The vet wants me too and i just find it absurd but i do love my dog and want her to live forever in comfort including dental health. It's just so silly, brushing a dog's teeth! Ridiculous!

No, but I wish I did because my 17 yr old cat now has terrible teeth/is very prone to infections in his mouth and the vet wants him to get a cleaning but he's old and the risk of putting him under is a little bigger than I'm comfortable with. There is a new fur baby in our family (~2 years old) who will be getting regular teeth brushings now though.

Have you ever been into any personality theories (Big 5, MBTI, enneagram, etc)?

Never heard of any of those so I guess the answer is no. There was one that was big awhile ago but I never got into it.

What is your favorite color, why.

Green. I think because it reminds me of spring although I'm not really sure why.

Do you have a favorite tree?

Nope...well I guess it depends on what you define as adventurous but no kangaroo burgers at the state fair and I will not eat the worlds hottest pepper. I do however like to explore new places to eat and I like food from various ethnicities.

@Bipolarchic14: Eeew, i wouldn't eat a kangaroo burger either! But, like you, i like new places to eat and ethnic food. There is an East Indian sweet dessert called "Barfi" and i would like to try it! It's just such a fun name for a food! "Do you like your Barfi?" "How is your Barfi?" "Are you enjoying the Barfi?" Just a quirk.

Do you have a hard time doing the dishes?

I actually am a pretty adventurous eater. I tend to also like most things I eat, with just some exceptions (super ripe cheeses, innards, and the like). I've lived and/or traveled in various countries around the world, and have given many seemingly strange things a try. These have included sea cucumber, chicken feet, thousand year eggs, stinky tofu, guinea pig, alpaca, blood sausage, Dorian fruit, sweet breads (brains), turtle soup, tripe, etc.

What is your favorite vegetable?

I manage. I don't enjoy it, though.

I'm really digging cauliflower right now. It's got an intriguing delicate taste.

In choosing fashion and decor, do you like bold design or subtle design? I like bold, i have many pieces with fascinating black-and-white prints.

"Breaking Bad," without a doubt. I like stories about the evolution of one main character. Walter White will go down in history!

Do you like listening to local radio? I do. It's so nice to hear news and info relevant to my city. You don't get that with the Internet stations. It's good company. Of course, there are commercials but i just mute them. It's a great way of discovering music too. I heard Eminem's new song yesterday and liked it and it's how i discovered this artist called Moby who sings about emotional pain set to electronica, so unusual, usually that type of music is just about sex and dancing which is so boring.

I don't listen to any radio. No idea why, just got out of the habit I guess.

Have you ever accidentally taken your meds twice or mixed them up another way?

Yes, but not many times. Mostly something to do with my morning meds. I must mention that my husband once accidentally took my evening meds in the morning (similar-looking pill boxes). That was awful for him. He almost passed out at work. I had to pick him up and drive him home. Then he slept about 14 hours straight (during the day).

What initial side effect have you gotten over from a medication?
