Interviews with Anna
- Favorite baking ingredient?
My favorite (traditional) baking ingredient is brown sugar. I just love how a little bit can completely change the flavor of a dish. But my favorite ingredient to use when baking is lemon juice!
- Favorite 90s song?
Oh goodness. Uhmmm... This is rather difficult. I would have to go with Christina Aguilera's song "Reflections". Everything else is (surprisingly) in the early 2000's. I feel so old now!
- Favorite nail polish color?
I love really soft, neutral colors. My favorite and ultimate go-to nail color will have to be OPI's "Under my Trench Coat". It's a really beautiful greyish brown that I wear year-round.
- Favorite childhood cartoon?
Other than Spongebob (which I still love!), my favorite childhood cartoon would probably be either According to Ginger or The Wild Thornberrys. I also really love Catdog and Doug (before Disney took over it).
- Why don't you like summer?
I don't like summer mostly because I really love autumn. Everything that I love about autumn (the beautiful weather, leaves changing, oversized sweaters, hot cocoa, everything!), is missing from summer. While other seasons may have their redeemable qualities, summer has none. Instead, it's just very, very hot. And boring. And all I want is for it to end.
- What's your most prized possession?
My engagement/ wedding ring. Not only is it so beautiful, but it puts a smile on my face every time I see it and think about how lucky I am to be with the man of my dreams.
- Favorite Disney princess and why?
Belle. Because she's a brunette and beautiful. But more importantly, she loves books, she doesn't get caught up in the silly things in life, but most importantly- she has such a kind heart that she could love a beast like Beast. I love that about her.
If you were a baked potato, what kind of toppings would you have?
Hmmm... Probably butter and cheese. Because I'm sweet, I can melt your heart, and I like to be a tad cheesy. Lame answer... I know!
I love to be active on Neopets and I like to consider myself a fairly well-rounded Neopian. While there are many different activities on Neo that I enjoy, I particularly love working on avatars and playing my flash games. I also really enjoy running my habitarium, customizing my pets, working towards trophies, kadding, and chatting it up with my lovely guildies. I love writing for the Neopian Times, and I cannot wait to get my coveted Neopian Times Star avatar. And, while I don't have much experience in these areas, I also hope to work further on pet development, drawing art for my pets, and creating graphics.
goals for may
May is my final month before I will become busied with schoolwork and studying again, so I'm using it as a final hurrah of sorts. My main focus this month will be slowly accumulating game avs, as I want as many as possible before I have to get back to school. NeoQuest and restocking are another focus, but they aren't the center of my attention (or ambitions) for this month.
One of my favorite hobbies is restocking. However, I'm afraid I'm a little bit rusty since it has ben awhile. Because of this, I want to just slowly easy myself into RS'ing again and not set goals too high that it becomes intimidating.
- Restock 10 UB's
- Practice RS'ing in new shop
- Restock 1 UB Petpet
- RS items for gallery
gaming + avatars
Most of my avatars are game-related now, so my focus will be on games from now on- rather than avatars.
- Set up new Game Center
- Reach 5 new high scores
- Get the Staff Smasher avvie
- Get the Raiders of Maraqua avvie
Another favorite pasttime on neo is NeoQuesting. I only have the gold NeoQuest I trophy remaining, so my focus in terms of NQ will be NQI on Insane. While I do enjoy it, I want to take my time for this final round, so my goals will be rather underwhelming comparative to the past.

Now that Adreinna is in the Ninja Academy, I am continuing to focus on her HSD, rather than level. While my monthly goal is rather ambitious, I'm hoping that it will become achievable if I constantly train and enlist the help of Faerie Quest (Cookies).

I also have a few other random goals that I would like to accomplish this month. Some of them will take quite a bit of time, while others will be a relatively quick.
- All content and coding done by myself (Anna).
- Background image drawn by the lovely Maryann for my use only.
- Bullets from Charm.
- Buttons linked back to their respective creators.
- Special thanks to Anh for all her help (and h2 headers)!
- Inspiration for monthly goals + pet sections goes to Sarah.
