You Should Have Been Born in the Autumn
You are an idealistic but also hard working person. You want to make the world a better place.
It's likely that you have a list of causes that you support - and a plan for advancing all of them.
You are a natural leader and organizer. You naturally sort out chaos and figure out what the first steps are.
You are confident in your abilities, but you also always have a contingency plan. Failure is not an option for you.
You know what you believe, and you are resistant to changing your mind. Others may find you frustratingly stubborn.
If you don't like how something is going, you're likely to take it over. You know you'll do a better job.
Your dominant hues are cyan and green. Although you definately strive to be logical you care about people and know there's a time and place for thinking emotionally. Your head rules most things but your heart rules others, and getting them to meet in the middle takes a lot of your energy some days.
Your saturation level is medium - You're not the most decisive go-getter, but you can get a job done when it's required of you. You probably don't think the world can change for you and don't want to spend too much effort trying to force it.
Your outlook on life is brighter than most people's. You like the idea of influencing things for the better and find hope in situations where others might give up. You're not exactly a bouncy sunshine but things in your world generally look up.

Does tutoring HS students count as taking an evening class? Is so, woot! woot!
I wish I was cool enough to be in a band - heck, I wish I could play a musical instrument
not sure what "the metal" is, but if it's musical - I will be wasting my time - I have no talent there.
I am ALWAYS on the look out for a new dragon - my collection will never be big enough
Day 1: Favorite episode from season 1:
Okay, I have to give a disclaimer on this meme - I haven't been a faithful watcher of LA - but I am trying really hard to change that. I haven't seen all of Season 1, but I have seen a few episodes. Of the ones that I have seen, my favorite is 1.24 G. Callen.
I absolutely love the idea of Callen - a hot mysterious guy who can take on any identity because he really doesn't have one of his own - he has no clue to his familial past. Intriguing. And bonus - this episode has Trent Kort - and you all know how I feel about Trent Kort (hot mess that he is).
