Megan wants to know!

My good milspouse/teacher buddy Megan Dub-Yuh is doing a "Getting to Know My Followers" meme!  I can't let her down!

1. How would you have described yourself in High School?  I was a little bit of everything, if you ask me!  I went to a grade seven through twelve, college-prep magnet school, where you had to test to get into it and maintain a GPA above 2.5 at all times.  That being said, you know I was a smarty pants.  I also played in band all six years, did cheerleader in grades 7-9, and played softball in grades 9-12 (well, I rode the bench).  I started getting into swing and rockabilly in my junior and senior years, and dressed accordingly for someone at that age just getting into it.  I wasn't a partier by any standards, although I did sow some oats in my senior year.  At school I hung out with a diverse group of friends who may have been the odd-ball type group - musicians, skaters, artists, thespians, etc, although all of us were brainy.
2. When you don't feel good what do you always want to help make yourself feel better?  A nap, of course!  That always makes me feel better!  If I'm down emotionally, downloading guilty pleasure songs on iTunes is a huge help.
3. When you go to bath shops what type of flavors do you gravitate towards? Flowery, foods...  I gravitate towards gardenia, musks, and tropical floral scents.  I like fruity scents, but don't care for them when they're sickeningly sweet.  My favorite Scentsy bars are Cranberry Mango and Grapefruit Pomegranate (which they discontinued).  Here are a few of my favorite fragrances and their notes. 
  • Juicy Couture's Viva La Juicy - High notes include wild berries, mandarin, honeysuckle, gardenia, and jasmine; low notes include amber, caramel, sandalwood, vanilla, and praline.
  • Donna Karan's Chaos - Sandalwood, cardamom, cinnamon, padukwood, agarwood, saffron, clove, amber, musk, sage, lavender, chamomile, and coriander.
  • Clinique's Happy - Top Notes include Ruby Red Grapefruit, Bergamot, West Indian Mandarin Tree Blossom, High Altitude Laurel; Heart Notes include Boysenberry Bush Flower, Morning Dew Orchid, Melati Blossom; Base Notes include Hawaiian Wedding Flower, White Crinium Lily, Chinese Golden Magnolia, and Spring Mimosa Blossoms.
  • Origins' Spring Fever - Blood orange, mandarin orange, grapefruit and middle notes with indian jasmine, frangipani, plum accord and finishing with ending notes with sandalwood, amber and vanilla.   
4. When at a bar what is your drink?  Diet Coke.  I don't drink, so give me my DC!  Hey, isn't it time for a Diet Coke Break?  This commercial is a classic!

5. If you go to your closet right now what do you think is the predominant color in it?  I already know for a fact!  Coral and chartreuse, my signature colors!

LOVE IT! I could go for a Diet Coke break right now, actually!

And downloading guilty pleasure songs is very good for the soul.

Thanks for your answers, I know I can always count on you!

Thanks for your share! I think this information is helpful for everyone. I'm doing practice GRE in . I hope it's useful for GRE test takers.

You know ... you might enjoy "Fresh Blossom" by DKNY ... hints of her classic green apple scent plus a light burst of florals. It's my new favorite! But then again, I've always loved wearing light and airy fragrances. D'Issey Miyake is another favorite, I think you can find it at Macy's?
