Farmgirl Writes
1. If you had to choose between living on a desert island or tropical rainforest for the rest of your life,      which would you choose?
I would definitely go with the tropical rainforest – at least there is water!
2. What is your favorite music CD right now?
I have wayyyy too many favorites. I’m currently loving Taylor Swift’s Speak Now, and Cats (The Original Cast Recording).
3. If you were given the choice between wildflowers or roses – which would you pick?
I’m definitely a girl – roses for sure. 
4. How much do you like notebooks? Is it mild, or are you absolutely obsessed with them?
Obsessed… It’s crazy!
5. What is your biggest goal this winter? 
On the computer: School – and to grow my blog design site, and learn more about web design. 
Off the computer: personal goals for piano.
6. If you could change your hair however you wanted, what would you do?
I probably wouldn’t change it. If I could add some very temporary highlights, I might, but I wouldn’t permanently change it. :D
7. Do you think Harry Potter is bad?
(I’m reading the series right now… so I’m not an expert). No, I don’t think so. As long as parents have discretion on when to let their kids read it. I wasn’t allowed to read it till high school(ish). However, it’s written for a junior high audience. 
In terms of literary content, from only having read the first book: It’s well-written. I get peeved with Harry, because he’s already so famous, and is well… perfect at anything. And when he does something not-so-perfect, it almost always works out to be the right, perfect thing for him to do. And poor Ron is such a 2-dimensional character…
And… (okay, I’m done now
8. Why do you think pink is a girls’ color?
Because it is. Don’t question, just let it be. :P
I have met some guys who like pink though. I think it’s just that pink is associated with girl-y things, so guys don’t want to touch it. They want to separate themselves out from the girls.
But seriously. How am I supposed to know? I’m not a guy. 
9. Would you be up to singing a solo in front of a thousand people?
Singing? No. If I can hide behind a piano, I’m fine. If I had to give a speech, I could. I have a low opinion of my own singing voice, and don’t know how to sing all that well, so I’d be too self-conscious.  
10. What colors look best on you?
I hate to brag, but almost anything(ish). Greens, blues, teal, burgundy, and other dark, rich colors are a favorite. 
11. If you had a different name, what would it be?
I don’t know… I love the name Natalie, but it doesn’t fit me. Probably Elise. :D
12. Do you like…
boots or sneakers? 
Boots. ;) 
flats or heels? 
I’m tall, and I still love heels. Hope the guy I marry is tall, or has a good sense of humor.  
books or movies?
Both.  
purple or pink? 
Depends on what for. To wear, I’d go with pink. To do a graphic design with, probably purple.
long hair or short hair? 
Medium, with layers. ;)
a best friend or a group of friends? 
Depends. I like having a group of friends, but sometimes, you just want that one person whom you can confide in. 
ice cream or cake? 
Ice cream… always has been, always will be.
plaid or polka dots?
Plaid, for sure. I’m a farmgirl, after all!

Hi. I’m Amanda. I love writing, traveling and Jesus, although you’ll also find that I appreciate good food and good photography. When I’m not working on homework, you’ll probably find me reading a good book or volunteering/working at whichever library I happen to be closest to.
