What is a common misconception of yourself, Jacqueline?
I suppose if I had to be honest about it, I’ve noticed that a lot of people tend to find me a little odd at first. I have a very extroverted personality and a distinct dialect about myself. One of a kind.
What do you do on your days off?
That depends on what you mean by days off. When I’m not working a typical 9 to 5 cubicle job, I tend to freelance. When I’m not doing either, I enjoy going to concerts. I have a habit of painting at 3 in the morning. I also play with my pet boa constrictor.
Whose website would you want to design or redesign?
That’s a tough one. If I could design anyone’s website, I’d have to choose Psy. His music amazes me and he just seems like he has so much personality. working with him on anything would be a blast. A close runner up would have been Nein Gaimon and Amanda Palmer’s wedding website.
What would your previous boss say is your greatest weakness/strength?
If you were to ask my last boss, he would probably tell you that they’re one in the same. I’m a complete workaholic. I like keeping busy and being productive. I believe it keeps me young.
Are there any accounts or types of work you would not want to do?
I’m not fond of fast food. I’m willing to do it, but I won’t like it. I also don’t think I could bring myself to work in the adult industry. I’m pretty wholesome.
What are you reading?
I’m in the middle of re-reading A Little Book On String Theory. I always find anything that can use musical instruments to explain physics amazing.
What are your dislikes/pet peeves/frustrations?
I tend to dislike when others use improper grammar or text speak. I feel that it weakens the value of communication. I understand that language is an evolution but it still saddens me when I see teenagers write papers for English class with a less than basic grammar set up.
Who do you follow on Twitter, and why?
Wil Wheaton. That man is hilarious.
9. What would you do in a panicky situation (e.g. the printer calls at 5:59pm to say a file is corrupted, and your boss already left)?
Simple. I would follow protocol and freak out after everything was fixed.
What’s your dream job?
My dream job would probably be a care taking position. I have plans on becoming a CNA and working my way up the medical ladder. I always get a certain satisfaction knowing that my job helps others. If for some reason that wasn’t an option I would love to work with charities such as Gamers Give Back.
12. If your boss offered your choice of reward for a job well done, what would you pick?
I would be completely content with a lava lamp. Those things, albeit simple, are absolutely amazing.
What was your first ever job, and how did you get it?
My very first job was a temporary position for the Western New York Developmental Disability Service Office and I absolutely loved it. I worked in a local Day Habitation in Ellington, NY. My family was very involved with the developmentally disabled community of Western New York due to my twin sister’s TBI (traumatic brain damage) from a car crash we were in as children. They were employing young adults fresh out of high school and it seemed like the perfect fit for me.
Pepsi or Coke?
I prefer Coke to Pepsi unless it’s Cherry Pepsi.
If you weren’t getting paid for what you do, would you still be doing it?
I do free things all of the time just for the fun of it. I find that charitable work pays off in ways that money cannot.
What do you know about us?
Given that I’m unaware of who’s reading this I’m guessing very little. Why don’t you find me and contact me? I’d love to talk and know more about you.
Why are manhole covers round?
A manhole cover is round to keep the cover from falling in to the manhole. If it were square or triangular then if applied incorrectly it could fall through. You also don’t have to rotate a circular object to get it to fit.
Feel free to check back frequently. I plan to update this often.
