The 5,000 Question Survey (Part 1)

1. Who are you?

Hi, my name is Katie. Welcome to Walmart.

2. What are the three most important things everyone should know about you?
One: My faith in Jesus Christ is the most important thing to me. No one can ever take it away from me. If you have questions, please ask. Two: My family is the second most important thing to me. They always, always come first. Third: I love sports. Amen.

3. When you aren't filling out 5,000 question surveys like this one, what are you doing?
I should be working. I also watch recorded TV (because anything that is live is just not worth the commercials) and I love to sing, dance, and paint. But I'm usually watching a sport. See 2.

4. List your classes in school from the ones you like the most to the ones you like the least (or if you are out of school, think of the classes you did like and didn't like at the time).
Choir with my mom, AP English with Mr. Avalon, 10th grade World History with Coach Rob, Art with Mrs. Gibson, Algebra I with Mrs. T, 11th grade English with Mrs. Holcomb. The least favorites are not worth mentioning.

5. What is your biggest goal for this year?
To find something I absolutely enjoy doing.

6. Where do you want to be in five years?
Still living within driving distance of my family. Hopefully married. And working for a charity.

7. What stage of life are you in right now?
The "I want to do more" stage.

8. Are you more child-like or childish?
I'd say child-like. I think that's why I love babysitting and babysitting loves me. I never get tired of playing hide-and-seek.

9. What is the last thing you said out loud?
"Um, nope. I think I'm good."

10. What song comes closest to how you feel about your life right now?
That's hard but it's probably something by Hillsong.

11. Have you ever taken martial arts classes?
Nope but there is no end to the attempts by my dad to get me to.

12. Does your life tend to get better or worse or does it just stay the same?
Better. The more I get to know my God, the better it all becomes.

13. Does time really heal all wounds?
I don't think time does. I think maturity, understanding and forgiveness do.

14. How do you handle a rainy day?
I'd love to just stay in bed every time it rains but I usually get up and go to work.

15. Which is worse: losing you luggage or having to sort out tangled holiday lights?
Definitely losing your luggage. The only thing you lose with tangled lights is your mind, and maybe a finger. When you lose your luggage, you lose clothes. I mean, come on.

16. How is your relationship with your parents?
My parents are my most favorite people on the earth.

17. Do you tend to be aware of what is going on around you?
Yes, most of the time. I'm pretty observant and I don't think people realize that.

The Gospel of Jesus Christ

23. What is the most physically painful thing that has ever happened to you?
Hmm, I busted my finger open playing skeeball one time. That was pretty painful. Other than that, I sprained my knee in cheerleading practice when I was a sophomore. That was pretty gruesome.

24. What is the most emotionally painful thing that has ever happened to you?
There are several. Of course, everyone has one of "those" breakups. Then I'd say, losing a friend to death and almost losing my dad.
