Thought I’d share the rest of the 24/7 Q& A that didn’t make it to the print edition of Skirt! Columbia’s 24/7. And I thought I would ask you to share your answers to any of the prompts on this list: my passion, words I live by, right now I am reading, I am inspired by, the best thing I ever won, the most important thing I ever lost, and the world would be a better place, if only. Cannot wait to read your comments!
My passion: Working on social justice issues and mouthily arm-chair quarterbacking for the Carolina Panthers.
My favorite possession: a pullover shirt I stole from my brother when I was 15 and my grandmothers’ rosaries
I’m thinking about: the beach and just how soon I can find myself on the sand, under the sun, feet in the water, gazing off for dolphins
Words I live by: We too often love things and use people when we should love people and use things. I can’t live without: a hard, sweaty workout.
If I could be totally wild, I would: buy an around-the-world ticket and aimlessly travel for a year.
One thing I’ve always wanted to do but never have: front a band.
I am guilty of: loving Eminem, the Indigo Girls, Usher, Lauren Hill and the Grateful Dead in equal measure.
Right now I’m reading: The Red Tent by Anita Diamant
I am inspired by: people who exhibit their vulnerability and integrity above all else.
If I had a vanity plate on my car, it would say: RAZYRVCE
If I could do it all over again: I would have worried less (at a younger age) about making nice at all costs
What I wanted to be when I grew up: a secret agent
The food I could eat every day: Ice Cream
If I were a superheroine (or fictional heroine), I would be: Harriet the Spy
The best thing I ever won: the confidence of my students.
My best friend says I am: funny, thoughtful, sincere, creative, courageous, and passionate
I still can’t get the hang of: technology. I can’t IM, text, or even use a digital camera. I think my cell phone does more than dial out, but I am really not sure.
The world would be a better place, if only: we made every decision with a child’s best interest in mind.
