Not many, to be honest. I've been focusing on my writing and art. But I did finish reading Neverseen, by Shannon Messenger, and I'm working through Dune, by Frank Herbert.
What's a song that's been on your mind?
Lights, by Journey. It's a beautiful song- you should listen to it! I'm in love with the chord progressions and the way the melody weaves through it. The lyrics give it a wistful, longing feel. I'm currently learning to play it on both piano and guitar.
Christmas. It's got such a beautiful, quiet excitement about it, and it's always special to remember Jesus's birth all those centuries ago. I have so many questions in my mind about that.... what was He like as a child? How much did He know about who He was? All of it? Some of it? Who knows. I suppose I'll ask Him someday.
But any way, the Christmas season is just so beautiful, and I love the music. It's also a time when my family performs a lot of concerts, and that's always fun. :D
Describe the prettiest firework you've ever seen.
Last fourth of July, I watched a fireworks display over a lake. One the the fireworks lit up in a large sphere of white sparkles, then rained down in golden glitter. It was so beautiful I decided I'd like to have at least one go off during my wedding reception... as soon as I find Sir Right and get married.
Is there a type of story you haven't read yet and really want to?
A steampunk novel with wizards, but I've already got my eye on one particular series from that genre, and I intend to write a trilogy of my own as well.
Egg plant parmesan is my default answer for that. :) But there are so many meals to choose from... mostly Italian, but also from the Puertorican culture as well.
What's your favorite least-known fairytale?
Difficult to say. There are so many! I love fairy tales- I consider them an art from. I'll list a few of my favorites:
Day Boy and Night Girl
Belle-Belle or the Chevalier de Fortune
The Hoodie Crow
What your favorite rare food?
Are we talking medium rare, or hard-to-come-by? If it's the latter, I like Giant Puffball Mushrooms. I don't think they're actually rare, it's just hard to find them in my area. But they're the best mushroom I've ever tasted- like melted cheese when they're cooked, almost. I might even risk a trip to Farmer Maggot's garden if I knew I could get my hands on one of them.
(Just kidding- I would never steal it. I'd just knock on his front door and ask.)
Draco. Though I have a difficult time finding it for some reason.
Pick a color and explain why you think it's beautiful.
I love that color because of it's striking vibrance and beauty. It is both dark and bright, dark, and warm. There is a life within its depths that seems so elegant and adventurous.

7. If you could live one day of your life in the style of a television show, what genre would you pick? (Sitcom, comedy, romance, crime drama, etc)
