How old were you when you got your first credit card?
19. It was one of the biggest mistakes I made in college. I am still paying off some credit card debt but I choose to spend only cash these days.
When was the last time you felt out of place?
I went to a party not too long ago were I felt a bit like a fish out of water. Most of the people there knew each other from high school. I was with a couple co-workers and a date so I kind of stuck close to the crew I knew. I still had a great time, though.
Did you have a curfew when you were a teenager? If so, what time did you have to be home?
I did have a curfew. I think it was in the neighborhood of midnight. I even had a curfew in college, that one was 1 am. My parents operated under the premise that they could tell me what to do until I started paying my own bills. These days I can go home and stay out as late as I want to, but I'm too old to actually live up to the dream!
Name a person from history with whom you feel you have something in common.
I can't really pinpoint anybody with whom I identify. I certainly sympathize with every woman who ever came before me in the career world. I value family tradition like JFK.
When you read a newspaper, which section do you go for first?
This is awful to admit considering I'm a journalist. I go straight for the "dessert" of the newspaper: the Life section. I'd rather read that over the local section any day.
