Name/Nicknames: Renata. Online I usually go by heyjupiter and at the summer camp I work at, I'm Zelda.
Birthdate: June 21
Likes/hobbies/talents: I'm majoring in English and history, so I like... reading. And I'm pretty good at writing papers, I guess. Also I'm the editor of the campus humor magazine. I also like sleeping, yoga, camping, and watching stupid TV. Yeah, buddy.
Dislikes: Cephalopods [squids/octopuses/cuttlefish], pretension, not getting enough sleep.
Strong Points: Patient, easy-going, supportive.
Weak Points: Shy, anxious, procrastinatory.
Fears: Cephalopods (DID YOU KNOW THEY CAN PICK LOCKS?), the Yellowstone supervolcano, global warmng.
Two favorite animals: cats, sharks.
Your favorite book or movie, and why: Right now my favorite book is The Partly Cloudy Patriot by Sarah Vowell, which is a collection of essays mostly about American history. They're very funny but also touch the sort of quirky liberal patriotism which I love. Sarah Vowell is basically my role model.
A favorite quote or song lyric: "People aren't either wicked or noble," the hook-handed man said. "They're like chef's salads, with good things and bad things chopped and mixed together in a vinaigrette of confusion and conflict."
-- Lemony Snicket
What you want to do for a living: Well, right now I'm applying to serve in the Peace Corps... after that I'm not sure. I'm thinking about applying to grad school for library science. My real dream job would probably be travel writer, or a writer for the Daily Show.
You find the journal of one of your friends that was left at your house. What do you do?: Oh, I'm sure I'd debate about it internally for a few minutes and then at least skim it.
If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why?: Teleportation, probably. I love to travel, and that would make it so much cheaper and easier!
Love is...: a many-splendored thing! Love lifts us up where we belong! All you need is love!
Revenge is...: generally unsatisfying.
Anything else?: Um... I've never done one of these rating communities before! Judge me well.
If you can, please suggest one thing (new question, question to be taken out, whatever) to make this survey better: I don't know, I'm new at this sort of thing :O Maybe ask the applicant's favorite Animorph character?
