Six Things

The other day, Casey posted her answers to six questions posed to her by a fellow blogger. She tagged Betsy at the end of her blog post to do the same. Then Betsy turned around and tagged me with six new questions! Clearly I have to play along.

Tell us about a situation that ended with you feeling really proud of yourself.
I've done a lot of cool things that make me proud. Graduating third in my high school class, working in France, interning with my sorority. But you know, sometimes it's the little things that matter the most. I au paired in New York/Toronto for ten months, taking care of three French kids, including a ten-year-old boy. When I started the job, he made a lot of casually sexist comments. Nothing cruel--just the little thoughtless things kids tend to say, like, "Girls don't like sports." After ten months with me, he prefaced any observation about boys or girls with disclaimers, avoiding accidental sexism, saying things like, "In my experience, with the fifth grade girls in my class, but not necessarily with all girls..." I'm still proud of that.

I always leave conversations thinking, "Oh man, I wish I had said that witty comeback but I came up with it too late!"  When was the last time it happened to you?

This has definitely happened to me, but I honestly can't remember the last time.

Someone is giving you a full scholarship and a stipend to get a degree in anything, anywhere you want.  Where would you go and what would you study?

This is such a great question!!! Since this is a dream situation anyway, I'm assuming that any school I want will offer any degree I want. I would clearly get my Ph.D. in Feminist Biblical Studies from the University of Oxford, in England. And I would clearly take a summer session (or several summer sessions) studying Jeanne d'Arc and other French religious women at the Sorbonne in Paris.

What did you want to be when you grew up?

The first woman president of the United States. A world-famous author. A teacher. A lawyer. A history professor.

If you could be a fictional character, who would it be?

Hermione. Obviously.

What actor would you choose to play you in a movie about your life?

Um, clearly I would star as myself in the movie about my life. But if the movie is about me in high school, and it happens when I'm too old to pass for 16, then I would want the hottest Disney star to play me.

Now it's my turn to pass on the fun!!! I'm tagging:

Bonnie at The Life of Bon
Elle at Elle Sees

  • What's the most valuable advice you ever received?
  • Describe the exact opposite of you.
  • What was your most successful cooking/crafting dish/project?
  • What's your favorite classic Disney film and your favorite DCOM? (Mine are 101 Dalmatians and HSM3).
  • If you could guest-star on any current TV show, what show would it be and what would be your role?
  • If you were an activist, what would be your cause?

Even if I didn't tag you, I'd love to see your answers! Feel free to share your own Six Things. 

To learn more about me, read about who I am or meet Belle!


  1. I have a friend who just finished her MA doing Feminism in Christianity at Cambridge. She says it literally changed her life so I am all for you winning the lottery, doing it at Oxford and then we can chat about it over a cup of tea. Also, I fully appreciate Hermoine as a choice because she is a badass. xx

    1. THANK YOU! Yes, it's one of my current dreams. OBVIOUSLY I would focus on sexual purity, because who's even done that from both a Christian AND a feminist perspective?! It's always just one or the other. And I love tea, so I'd totes be down for that.

      Hermione is a total badass. She and I are practically the same person, down to the big curly hair.

  2. 1. Choose happiness.
    2. Outgoing, loud, mean
    3. my diy perfume because it was published in a magazine
    4. i love sleeping beauty
    5. mad men. JOAN
    6. equality for all

    Thanks for tagging me, love!

    1. Great answers! I remembered that you answered the questions last time I didn't tag you, so I thought I'd officially include you this time. :)

  3. Favorite Disney movie is tough. But I used to love The Rescuers and Oliver and Co. when I was little. If only I had them on dvd!
