For those that haven't already seen this:

 

1. Why did you choose your Ajah? (If you are a Warder, I'd like to hear why this Ajah, as well as why you chose your path) I haven't chosen an Ajah yet.

2. Where are you from/where do you live? Texas, USA

3. What do you do for a living? IT product manager

4. Hobbies? Karaoke, fishing, theatre, reading

5. Favorite color? Blue

6. Birthday? 12/02

7. When was the first time you read WoT? 2005, only got to book 6, and that was in the 10th re-read 😄

8. Do you believe in soulmates? Yes I do. 

9. What do you like about yourself, physically? I like my nose, ears, fingernails, and feet.

10. What do you like about yourself, character-wise? I like that I'm a giving person, confident (mostly), and that I'm a diplomat. 

11. What is something you think you can work on as a person? Being able to set boundaries and tell people no (I'm so much better about this now than I used to be, and I give myself credit for that).

12. If you had all the money you could possible want, what would you do? I'd own a theatre and produce shows.

13. What lesson(s) have you learned about life? You can't make everyone happy, and you can't control how people choose to feel and react to things. All you can do is make the best decisions you can, and live your own best life.

14. Do you have a creed you live by? (Besides This is the Way 😜) I treat others how I want to be treated. But I don't let people walk on me anymore.

15. Star Wars or Star Trek? Both!

16. Favorite musical(s), and why? I could write a novel on this one, but I'll touch base on a few: I love Shrek the Musical, because it's fun, and I love the messages in the show. I also love Wicked because of the music and staging. My dream role is Rosie in Mama Mia, because I'd basically be playing myself 😄.

17. Favorite movie(s), and why? This is another novel, but I'll keep it short. I watch Avatar anytime it's on TV. The story and writing is just so good. I love Dirty Dancing/Grease/Chicago because I love the music and dancing (I'm a dancer and choreographer). Harry Potter, because I love the books, and it's a special thing between me and my mom. Pretty much anything sci-fi/fantasy related because I love dragons, magic, unicorns, mermaids, fairies, swords, space-travel, the future, royalty, etc.

18. What fictional character(s) do you relate to? Elliot from Scrubs is literally me. Hermione from Harry Potter. Sansa Stark from GoT. *Adding in....Elsa is my Disney princess. I've always been Ariel (because I'm a mermaid), but when Elsa came along with the issues she has, I knew I had found my princess.

19. Who is your favorite character(s) in WoT? I love Nynaeve and Egwene, though I'd want to play Graendal if I could.

20. What other book series are you into? Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, Dune, Isaac Asmiov's Foundation series, Hunger Games, Martian Chronicles, and the list could go on and on and on....

21. Favorite band(s)/song(s), and why? I'm a big Rush, Muse, Lady Gaga, and Imagine Dragons fan. Hold Your Fire is my favorite Rush album due to the spiritual nature of it. I love pretty much everything all those artists do because the music is fun, performance is great, and for the most part, the writing is good.

1. Why did you choose your Ajah? (If you are a Warder, I'd like to hear why this Ajah, as well as why you chose your path)

Hello @Phaedra!  I'm late to the party, but I'm so glad you stopped in to share this with us!

 

For your answer of Star Trek or Star Wars, care to share more details?


What's your favorite Star Wars movie?

 

Which Star Trek captain do you love the most?

 

I always find it funny that we put those two as rivals when so many of us like them both!

1. Why did you choose your Ajah? (If you are a Warder, I'd like to hear why this Ajah, as well as why you chose your path)

I like to think of myself as logical, but when I was looking at all the Ajah choices (way back in the day), the White Ajah's website (they were all hosted outside Dragonmount at that time) had a list of math equations.  I knew this was the home for me!  

 

I've stayed, though, because I love the members here!  We tend to lurk, but I know I can count on any one of them if needed!  ❤️ 

 

2. Where are you from/where do you live?

Phoenix, Arizona, and I'm living in Gilbert--one of its suburbs--currently.

 

3. What do you do for a living?

5th grade math teacher.  ❤️ 

 

4. Hobbies?

Writing, watching cooking shows, playing video games.

 

5. Favorite color?

Pink!

 

6. Birthday?

July 11th (I get a free slushie at 7-11!).

 

7. When was the first time you read WoT?

1999.  I've been rereading ever since.

 

8. Do you believe in soulmates?

As an atheist, it's hard for me to say yes to questions like this because it implies there is a higher power in charge.  That said, yes, I do believe my spouse is my soulmate!  ❤️ 

 

9. What do you like about yourself, physically?

I have very pretty hazel eyes.

 

10. What do you like about yourself, character-wise?

I am friendly and very determined to do my best.

 

11. What is something you think you can work on as a person?

Patience, especially with 150 5th-grade students.

 

12. If you had all the money you could possible want, what would you do?

Buy every single cute outfit I want.

 

13. What lesson(s) have you learned about life?

Do what makes you happy.

 

14. Do you have a creed you live by? (Besides This is the Way 😜)

I recently found this quote and love it: "Smooth seas don't make skillful sailors."

 

15. Star Wars or Star Trek?

Star Wars.

 

16. Favorite musical(s), and why?

Currently, Frozen 2.  I can't stop singing those songs!  I love the development of Elsa, how she doubted herself and with only a bit of confidence was able to let of all her ties and turn into the woman she was supposed to be.

 

17. Favorite movie(s), and why?

Whispers of the Heart, a Japanese anime by Hayao Miyazaki.  It's a sweet love story at its core, but it also features a young girl protagonist who pushes herself to be the best she can be.  She's determined to complete a task (writing a novel), and she doesn't give up.  I love the example she sets.

 

18. What fictional character(s) do you relate to?

Definitely, Elsa. I also wish I had magical ice powers....  Nynaeve, of course!  I can relate to most because I'm an empath.

 

19. Who is your favorite character(s) in WoT?

Nynaeve!  Her growth throughout the series is phenomenal!  And if I could marry any fictional character, it would be Lan--or Marshal from Animal Crossing.

 

20. What other book series are you into?

I've read most by Brandon Sanderson, and Rhythm of War (the 4th in the Stormlight Archive) comes out later this month.  Other than that, I haven't ready anything lately!  😢 

 

21. Favorite band(s)/song(s), and why?

I like Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers because they have a wide range of song themes and sounds.  I love Coheed and Cambria because they're heavy metal but their songs tell a sci-fi story.  I like Jimmy Eat World because a lot of their songs are about internal struggle (and overcoming it).

How did I not know this before @kukasö ? Are there any pictures of your designs? I’d love to see!

 Have I never told before? 🙂

 

Something like this.

The second and third is before/after. It’s what people usually bring me and I redesign the facade.

Sometimes it’s like the first picture where I designed the facade after it was built in brick.

And that’s what  the house looked like when they finished it. (they asked to change the garage door to living room window later)

Totally agree...I think it's hilarious the two fandoms are rivals. I like them both for different reasons.

 

I have two favorite Star Wars movies...Return of the Jedi and Rogue One. But Mandalorian is my favorite out of everything Star Wars related.

 

My favorite Star Trek captain is Jean-Luc 😍.
