    Another Elite Kid

    The Application

    Name- Jeni

    Age- 18

    Location- Duncanville, TX...a suburban quagmire

    Hobbies- outdoorsy stuff, playing guitar, writing as much as possible, or whenever inspiration strikes me, mud wrestling, going to shows, overanalyzing everything, rambling and ranting


    Top 10 Bands- (i'm prolly gonna go over ten...) Bright Eyes, Cursive, Silverchair, The Pixies, Glassjaw, Sublime, Incubus, Elliott Smith, Cat Power, Modest Mouse, Deathcab for Cutie

    Top 5 Movies- Donnie Darko, Kill Bill, SLC Punk, Fight Club, Dancer in the Dark

    Top 5 Books and why- 1) The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides: The writing is beautiful. It sticks with you. It explores the minds of the Lisbon daughters, and yet, no one can really pinpoint why they all decide to kill themselves. I guess it just touches me, having lost a friend to suicide, and it's not a book that just tries to make you feel good. It makes you think, it makes you empathize with the characters, it makes you uncomfortable, and I think that can be an important thing. 2) Invisible Monsters by Chuck Palahniuk: Explores the whole obsession with beauty, and doing what you fear the most, fucking up to find redemption. Chuck Palahniuk is just fucking brilliant. I could never in a million years come up with the kinds of plots and twists that he comes up with. 3) Innocence by Jane Mendelssohn: A dark coming-of-age story. Then again, what coming-of-age story isn't dark? It's also got a bit of the supernatural, as a metaphor. Describes the metamorphosis of a teenage girl, and I identify with that--feeling awkward and ugly, and then it seems like suddenly, it all changes, but it doesn't make things any easier. 4) Marabou Stork Nightmares by Irvine Welsh: Pretty stream-of-consciousness, a different style of writing from what I was used to. Enjoyed it. What a warped story. Tragic, but good. I guess we all feel a little nihilistic from time to time, right? Like we don't give a fuck about hurting anyone else. Kinda scary, if you think about it too much. 5) Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury: The biggest theme in this book is friendship, and how these two guys have been best friends all their lives, but things are changing now, and they're not gonna be friends forever. It actually hurts a little to read this, because I think of how naive I used to be, thinking that friends are friends forever.

    Food(s)- pulgogi, mandoo (those are korean foods), frozen pepperoni, cinnamon raisin bagels, oats 'n honey granola bars, french fries, chicken

    Place to be- a place where i don't have to be fake for anyone. a place that challenges me to stand up for what i believe, a place outside my comfort zone.

    TV Show(s)- Daria, What Not To Wear, Reno 911!, The Daily Show

    Clothing Item(s)- black ruffled miniskirt, my pink and white striped cleavage shirt, black off-the-shoulders top, bright green oversized hoodie, eighties white/pink dancer top

    Actor/Actress- Guy Pierce, Uma Thurman (well, in Tarantino movies, anyways)

    Random Questions

    If you could spend just one day with someone living, dead, animated, or famous who would it be and why? Anyone who killed themselves. I would persuade them not to do it.

    Who is your role model and why?

    If you could pick one song to describe your life, what would it be and why? That's difficult, but I'm gonna say... "Evolve" by Ani Difranco, because she says that she is only trying to evolve. And that's pretty much how our lives are; trying to evolve into a better self.

    What do you like most about yourself? why? I like that I'm honest and direct, because it makes people laugh and think at the same time. I like that I have a bad habit of corrupting my friends, because it's amusing, and because we know that I'm not that bad, not really. I like that I can see things from different points of view, it helps with relationships and such.

    What do you like least about yourself? why? I hate that I sometimes bulldoze over people's feelings because of my honesty and my refusal to be fake. I hate that I can be really indecisive, because I see things from many different angles.

    If you could be any animal what would you be and why? I would be a kangaroo, so I could always carry you in my pouch. *cheesy grin*

    Humor Me. Tell me a joke. What do you call cheese that isn't yours? Nacho cheese. (har har har. i couldn't help it.)

    Why do you think you're elite? Because I speak my mind without apology.


    Abortion- No one has any right to judge a woman who's had an abortion unless they've been in that exact same situation, which is doubtful. If you make abortion illegal, not only will the child die, so will the woman, thus wasting more lives than you would if you just kept it legal. I say, let the woman make up her own mind.

    Same Sex Marriages- I don't care what the president says, marriage in America is NOT sacred. You cannot turn on the television and watch Who Wants to Marry a Fuckin Midget and tell me that marriage is sacred. What about love, isn't love sacred?

    Smoking/Drugs/Alcohol- Meh, not for me. I don't have a problem with people who do smoke and stuff, though. What you do is your own business, and as long as you're not hurting anyone around you, I don't think it should be, you know, illegal. We could use some of that money to educate kids more about the hard drugs, like heroin, and less about weed, since we all know about Mary Jane.

    President Bush- Mrawr. I didn't want him in the first place. The man is a bumbling idiot who should not be entrusted with foreign affairs. Or domestic affairs, for that matter. I don't agree with anything he's done in office, like that whole not signing the Kyoto Treaty? Great move, ASS. If he gets re-elected, I'm moving to Canada. Don't get me wrong, I love America. I'm just sick of the uber-conservatism. It's cool that the man is a Christian, hey, me too. But it would be nice if he wasn't such a Bible thumper in politics. "Open wide, say ahh...i'm gonna shove this bible down your throat! Eat it!!" Right.

    Labels- We all say we hate them. Whatever, we need them, well, we've set ourselves up to believe we need those labels. Obviously a word or a phrase cannot accurately sum up an entire person's essence, but it can be convenient sometimes, I suppose. If we didn't have labels, we wouldn't have punks to say fuck 'em. *shrug*

    Posers- They bother me. When I see some ten-year-old chick on a skateboard wearing a huge Good Charlotte t-shirt and her brother's old JNCOs, I don't exactly think to myself, "Wow, what a badass. I am intimidated." But many of them are just that, ten. Now, now...mustn't hate on the children!

    Now post some pictures of yourself. Atleast 2.
