I am authentic.

Joining Ab's blog party. :) If you like fun, join in her blog parties are possibly my favorite.
Hello! My name is Marissa. Yes that is me.
I choose that pictures to show that I am crazy. Not it that mental way where nothing you says makes sense, which, might actually happen... when I'm really tired. BUT basically what I'm trying to say is I am a weirdo. Three of my most favorite things are: coffee, coldplay and photography. 
I am the oldest of 5 kids. If you are thinking "wow their house must be loud." then you are totally right. 
I am a lover of music. I've been playing the violin for 9 years and plan to continue that until I die. 
I love literature. Huck Finn. Tom Sawyer. To Kill a Mocking Bird. Pride and Prejudice. Classics. 
I love movie soundtracks.
Autumn is my favorite season and I like fuzzy socks.

1} What's the nerdiest/geekiest/weirdest thing about you?
Well, I'm sure there is plenty of weird things about me... and I probably don't even know about them because half the time I don't think its weird and others do. So I'll list some and you if you say "oh thats not weird" then you must do it too! ha!
1. I do feel compelled to burst out in song at all times of the day.
2. I geek music. yes I do.
3. I'm a nerd for harry potter. 
2} If you could live in a fictional universe from any book, movie, or television show, what would it be?
At first, I didn't have answer for this. But I just mention harry potter and was like "um duh!"
So, yes. I'd like to live at hogwarts. I would have a purple lizard and play quidditch. 

3} Little or big, practical or frivolous, what is one of your favorite items in your house?
My bulletin board and wall of favorite things. 

They make me happy. 
{Bad pictures. Sorry the our lights are yellow and it was dark outside so that didn't help.}
Also. I promise I'm not as obsessed with Harry Potter as I seem. I just like movie posters :)

4} Do you like animated movies? If so, what is your favorite?
I love animated movies! Anything pixar is fantastic. I love Ratatouille and Up, as well as Finding Nemo and Bugs Life. Oh! Kung Fu Panda and Tangled too! Can't forget those. Man. So many good ones! Also, I love the pixar short with the old man playing chess with himself.

5} What is your favorite household chore?
Okay. This is kinda hard because, I like doing laundry, and I also like vacuuming.... So, I'll just break the rules and say those two, because I can't deicide. 

6} What's your favorite thing to get at Starbucks (or your favorite coffee shop)?
Now this is probably the hardest question ever. Since I work at a coffee house, I've tired so many different kinds of drinks and like so many of them that its really hard to choose. I also make up a lot of drinks that aren't on our menu... so I get something different everytime. Either a basic drink with some sort of twist or something someone else made up. 
I will say that my staple is caramel. Anything with caramel is yummy. Also white chocolate. Recently, I've been drinking out newest drink: Autumn Delight which is white and pumpkin. YUM. OH! One last thing. I tried the salted caramel mocha at Starbucks, at that was pretty tasty I must say. Weird, but good.

7} What is your favorite pizza topping?
I'm gonna say the classic, pepperoni. Although, if you can find a super cheesy pizza.... I might just be your best friend. 

8} Waffles or pancakes?
Waffles. All. the. way. But I think I'm the only one in the house that would choose waffles over pancakes. Which is really sad for me.

9} Do you like to play games? If so, what is your favorite?
Any sort of board game is always enjoyable. As well as Uno. It's a family favorite. 

10} Have you ever let anyone win a game?
Oh probably. :)

11} Have you ever dyed your hair?
Never. Although when I was younger I thought it'd be super cool to have blonde highlights... 

12} Do you make your bed every morning?
Ha! What a joke! No. Although I often make it right before I'm about to go to bed.... yes I am weird.

13} Picasso or Norman Rockwell?
I'm gonna break the rules again and say both. Picasso's art is ruling break and wacko weird, which I like. Norman's is of people doing things and living, which I also like, so, gotta say both. 

14} Do you like carpet, tile, or hardwood floors?
Hardwood all the way! I love it.

15} If you could put one thing in a safe under your bed, what would it be?
Multiple back ups of all my pictures. They are my memories. my life. I'd hate to lose them. I'd probably cry. I'd also put my journals in there. I've keep one since I was 10, so that to, is memories and life.

16} What's your favorite condiment?
Ranch. I know. So boring. But I literally put it on everything. Okay, thats a lie. But I use it one a lot of things. And is salt a condiment? Because I use that a lot too. Actually its a seasoning. So never mind. 

17} Have you ever thrown up on someone (excluding when you were a child)?
This questions struck me as quite hilarious. I literally laughed out loud. And no. Not to my knowledge have I ever thrown up on someone. 

18} What was the last thing that made you laugh?
My sister megan saying: "Well! I didn't have dinner! I had green beans and a bowl of cheese!"

19} Think fast...what's the first song that pops into your head?

Paradise - Coldplay. Its constantly in my head these days. Like I said, I like love Coldplay!

I'll get around to it someday) but I remember when each one came out and it's crazy how young the actors were at the beginning compared to now. They were super cute!! That is a great Norman Rockwell painting, too. :)
