I read your interview a couple of times, very interesting indeed, now I feel I know you much better & you sound like a lovely young lady.
"I prefer validating things I hear or being told by using logic, facts, and research----- not taking things for what they are because someone told me so."
I absolutely loved your introduction and in my book, the words above tell me you're an independent thinker, not a follower, one who seeks & understands the importance of truth; the opposite, as we have seen, has only brought harm to humanity. As Plato said, "the philosopher is in love with truth, that is, not with the changing world of sensation, which is the object of opinion, but with the unchanging reality which is the object of knowledge". You're definitely my kind of girl.
"New Jersey is full of culture. It is very diverse"
It sounds just like Toronto. & I might add, very impressive list of celebrities. I remember having a huge crush on David Cassidy also!
"I intend to go through with my ideas and make them reality. My goal, which I am currently working on, is designing handbags... ALL profits will go to benefit research and a cure for Huntington’s Disease. My Aunt currently has it and my cousin will probably get it. There isn’t much knowledge about the disease or attention to it.... I also want to extend the proceeds to help find a cure for Alzheimer’s disease. My late grandfather, God rest his soul, had it. It was really tough to see such a wonderful person who I loved so much suffer that fate. I am glad he is at peace now. I will miss him....Another goal of mine is to open my own restaurant".
You sound determined & I wish you best of luck with your future endeavours. I'm sorry about your grandfather & that your family has been affected by Huntington's; I'm sure it has been very difficult, in my volunteer work I have encountered many such cases as well as Alzheimer's so I know a bit about it. How great it would be to finally find a cure for all diseases, but to get there & achieve breakthroughs in treating, funding & research is imperative; you're totally right that some don't get the same attention or funding.
"In that case, I will walk away and stew about it until those evils cease."
Ditto! Or at the very least, I count until 10.
"Jandros: Your wise and you’d probably figrure out a way to make water from sand or something"
You're absolutely right! You were also spot on with respect to your description of the others. OMG, I think we would never stop laughing and talking & would simply forget about eating & sleeping.
"Barack Obama" I have been criticized for putting this man on a pedestal too soon, I know he has yet to prove himself, but regardless, the man is brilliant, magnetic, eloquent yet humble at the same time & I believe it is this quality that so far has gotten him support from even those who disagree with him (exclude Republicans please. ). I could go on and on about him, but I think I will stop now!
"The Supremes,Frankie Valli". Loved them.
"All the Bourne Movies, Mamma Mia, Schindler’s List, Saturday Night Live."Love all of them, but the last one is on too late for me, however, during the Presidential race I was up every Sat. night, Tina Fey & Amy Poehler were just hilarious.
"A man is honest and faithful. He is comfortable enough with himself and his role in life, to not be threatened by a woman who is independent. A man doesn’t use supression to make them feel more masculine. He will cry when he is sad, yell when he is angry, and laugh when something is funny (even if it is stupid). Also, he will ask for directions when he is lost…haha. A man is not scared to feel, love, or commit. He will talk about what’s bothering him; holding nothing back. He treats women like most men treat their mothers. He would take a bullet for his family and would put them first. He doesn’t nessasarily have to be strong, but he must be strong minded and strong willed."
I love the way you think, don't settle for anything less.
Lastly Angeliki, thanks for your kind words. Thanks also to you and Maviii for another informative, fun & entertaining interview!
