I asked the Dancing Star to interview me and here's how said interview went:

1. What has been the most important lesson you have learned in the past year?
As selfish as it sounds - to always look out for yourself first - look out for numero uno. I don't enjoy sounding selfish, but if I don't look out for myself, no one else will. This doesn't mean that I am 100% selfish, but I will always take care of myself first and then I will focus on others in my life. I have learned that I give too much of myself with nothing in return. That's over.

2. Where do you see yourself in 1 year? 5 years? 10 years?
1 year: I'll, most likely, be right where I am now. I'll be working full time at the local electric company in a clerk position, working on my house and going to graduate school.
5 years: I'll have my MBA, I'll have a management position at work, I'll be married and I'll be starting my family.
10 years: I'll be a married mother and a career gal enjoying life to the fullest.

3. What do you do as a treat to yourself when you have a bad day?
Nothing too special. I usually get some ice cream, veg out in front of the TV and then give myself a mani/pedi. That's my bad day ritual.

4. Having just gone through a breakup, what advise would you share with someone going through the same thing?
This sort of goes with my answer to number one. The best advice I can share is to worry about YOU. Take care of yourself. Go out and get your hair done. Buy new clothes, makeup or shoes or whatever makes you feel special. Make sure you are happy with yourself. Then, and only then, will you be able to move on. In the end, you're going to be broken up regardless (que sera sera - what will be will be) - why not make the best of it. If things work out and you rekindle the relationship, at least you know that you were always happy and that you can respect yourself after the stormy period.

My mother always taught me to think about how others perceive me. She always told me not to do anything that I wouldn't want my parents or grandparents to know about. So, in order to keep myself on track, I tend to believe my grandma is looking down on me (I want her to be proud of me), so I don't do anything that would make her think ill of me. That ties into the end of a relationship because people tend to do some crazy things during a breakup (I tried not to).

5. What is your most precious memory?
Now that's a tough one...I have so many. As lame as it sounds, I just miss being a kid and sitting around the TV at night with my brother and my parents. We usually made a large bowl of popcorn and watched TV together at night (during the week). I probably hated it then, but I think back and that is one thing that I miss a LOT.

Now, I know that my answers weren't written too well, but get over it! :0)

Love y'all!

Those were wonderful answers. Very cool.

And you are NOT a selfish person. You are SMART. One does have to look out for herself. I know what you mean. We chicks tend to put ourselves second in relationships at times...
