9:15: drive to work. Usually arrive 15-20 minutes early. Sit in car like a loser.

2. What’s your favorite reality tv show?
So You Think You Can Dance or The Biggest Loser. I don't really watch any aside from those.
3. What motto do you live by?
Um...Shit happens. No, just kidding (though that's not bad)...I guess I don't really have a motto? I don't think about it. Know who you are, know what you are, and know that above all, it's ok that you'll never fully know. That pretty much covers it.
4. If you knew you could you try anything and not fail, what dream would you attempt?
I feel as though I should be noble and say "find a cure for all cancers!" or the like--and while that would be lovely, I think it's much more fitting for me to say I'd be an editor for a magazine or be on Broadway. Any of those will work for me.
5. What was your first job?
Real paying job? American Eagle Sales Associate and Aerie Lead (MOST MISERABLE JOB IN THE WORLD). Not-really-job-but-gave-me-more-happiness-and-fulfillment-than-"real"-job? When I was 6-9 I used to help my mom at the library desk, checking out books and making recommendations to customers (yep, in all my 7 year old glory I declared Sweet Valley Twins to be like, the best evAR).
6. What is your current job?
Office Assistant at a Financial Analysis company. More or less.
7. What would you call yourself if you could choose your own name (and you cannot pick the one you already have)?
I've always loved the name Zoe. Ever since I was really little I wished it would be my name (even though I don't really feel as though it's my personality). But that is why when I wrote under a pen name, it was Zoe.
8. What musical instruments can you play?
If we use the term "play" extremely loosely, I can say the piano and guitar.
9. Is it easier to forgive or forget?
I'm not sure either of those are really easy at all. I rarely forgive; I mostly accept. And I rarely forget; I choose to prioritize. The easier is determined by the situation.
10. What is one food you’d never want to taste again?
Mushrooms, pickles, peas, pine nuts. Any of those.
