-------------------------------------My Life Story Below----------------------------------
1.) My screen name is the nickname I give my cat. I sometimes call him Chesnut, or big and sexy.... I was 9 when I thought of it, so hence Chesnut9. I really wanna change the name to BuddyChesnut to include my other cat, Buddy. Or to NYCatsurfer, since I am from NY and like to surf... but I can't, so I am still living life as a 9 year old... ho hum...! ___________________
2.) I really want an island when I am older. Wouldn't that be so much fun?? I already have the perfect plot picked out too. It is in the Bahamas, with an airstrip and a bunch of cabanas scattered around the coast. It is perfect! And, it has like a huge lagoon area too. My plans: to build a huge gate across the opening to the lagoon to keep out sharks! Finally! A place where I won't have to fear for my life! Phew! ______________________________
3.) I live in Arizona with my family and 4 cats. However, I was born in Stony Brook, Long Island, NY. My family and I just went back to NY on May 25-June 3. So much fun! I'll tell you all on thing: Arizona is obviously a place of wide streets but NARROW minds. New Yorkers never hold back their opinions, and they are just so much fun to be around! ________________
4.)Music: I LOVE Country music! It is just so down-to-earth, and overall fabulous! My favorite country bands are The Band Perry, Lady Antebellum, Carrie Underwood, Brad Paisley, Thompson Square and "Faith Hill and Tim McGraw". OMG, Faith Hill and Tim McGraw are just the best- and they really connect with the music. I also like Liberty X, an alternative band, because they are just fantastic! A totally different beat than what is usually played on the radio. Of course, I also enjoy Cobra Starship, Beach Boys, All Time Low, and anything 60's like The Supremes, Diana Ross, etc... OH! And I love Adele! She has some real talent! Music is like the beat in my life... I am never without it! **UPDATE** I am in LOVE (like a deep down-to-heart, I will die for you love) with Showtunes. Oh my God! This gets my heart beating like a chicken on the cutting board. There’s RENT, Cats, The Book of Mormon (omg, funniest musical I have EVER heard), Wicked!, and Les Miserables (totally my most favorite movies of 2013! Best songs!) You must listen to these! I’m telling you: they’re like stories, in a song, and someone’s life in music…. Ugh! I’m tearing up! _______________________________ 4b.) Let’s do favorite movies too! Kinda along the same lines, eh? So! 2012, Poseidon, The Day After Tomorrow, The Help, Skyfall, Titanic, I Am Legend, RENT, The Hunger Games, Narnia (all 3 movies), and Les Miserables! **People!** You MUST see Les Miserables! Best movie of 2013!!! ___________________________________________________ 5.) I love reading! I am really into Murder Mysteries! So, naturally, my favorite authors are Ted DeKker, Suzanne Collins (THE HUNGER GAMES!), Erin Healy, Lee Goldberg (author of the Monk Mysteries), and Elaine Viets (author of the amazing Dead-End Job Mysteries.) All of these authors are totally amazing, and they take you inside the heads of physco killers, are innocent victims. I recommen_____________________________________ 6.) I love to play musical instruments. I love the piano... just imaging my fingers flying across the keys gives my goosebumps! Lol! I play the trumpet and the violin. I want to learn the clarinet, but I have like no time to do that with school and and life! ______________________________________ 7.) I have earned a ton from P2S. I run a lot because of my new Hydration Pack. Oh and by the way, I was (school is out for the summer!) on the Track team at school. I was a sprinter- oh the memories! If you ever need help with shin splints, just ring a bell- I know the best cures! I Love my new iPod touch cases, since they kinda blend into the device, and aren't so bulky. The referral guide is pretty awesome, though I haven't exactly read it yet... I can't find TIME! My black sports watch, and the white one,are AmAzInG!! Small and great for swimming, which I always enjoy doing. Oh! And by the way, I am a Lifeguard! More about that below! My new Black (super black) Wayfarer Glasses are just 'ok' since they don''t fit my face... but hey, they were free so no complaining. My Dog Tags are like my FAVORITE THING! I just LOVE them!! I wear them everyday, and they came engraved (personalized) with my favorite Bible verses on them. Just fantastic, and quite stylish too. I bought a Surfer, Christian fish, leather bracelet and (OF COURSE) I can't take it off. I ordered, for free, some brown sunglasses that came with a watch. THEY are so cool because they fade (darker at top and lighter at the bottom), and have great quality. The silver on the watch and glasses are so shiny, and match everything!! Before school began in August, I bought a vibrating alarm clock. I have the toughest time getting up for school since I go to bed so late because of all my AP classes. Anyways, it works! I used to keep it under my pillow, but I realized that if I put it at my matress frame, my entire bed would vibrate. Getting up has never been so fun! Best part was that it approved in less than a day, and got to my house by the end of the week. So cool!! My latest purchase was this microphone thing for my iPod. In my classes, I can just plug it into my iPod, and record the lectures my teachers are giving. So far, it has worked, and I enjoy the nice small size of it! **I BOUGHT A PHONE!** With the money I got on Cashle, I bought a smartphone! It’s a TMobile Galaxy 4G. I love it! It’s an awesome starter smartphone, with everything I like! Wonderful if you don’t have a 2-year contract either since they are about $200 on ebay! Worth every penny! I also did a withdraw for $100 to buy RAYBANS! You can see my post here: http://www.points2shop.com/topic/152933/My-pair-of-free-Ray-Bans-Wayfarer/1. They are just lovely! They make every outfit just "that" much better! Can't wait to use them for lifeguarding!!! B) ________ 7b.) So yea, I’m a lifeguard! I save lives. If your life needs saving, just ask me, I’m certified! AND! I’m tan: everyone needs a plus, right? :) _________ 8.) MY *old* SECRET! Doing 1 or 2 surveys a day! Period. Done. Easy and Simple. When I first started out, I would frustrate myself by doing tons of offers every night, and only make out a few hundred points because I was sloppy. After retiring from P2S for a few months, I started back up again with a new plan, doing a big survey once a day. Over time, making $1 a day pays out... and soon that is about $300 a year. With the things that I buy, that it perfectly in my budget. So, I do LOTS of $1 cash outs. I do SurveyHead every day, so simple, and it is kind of like a stress reliever before I start all my homework. Sometimes, if my goal is really close, I do a few other surveys just so that I can get it sooner. You may be wondering, what are you doing with all these $1 cash outs to your PayPal account? Well, it's one word- eBay!!! I love eBay! I can get tons of things off of there dirt cheap. It is wonderful! However, my biggest purchase with my money from Cashle is this wonderful backpack from [this one very amazing website, that you must ask me for… it won’t let me post links here ] Very stylish and quite roomy too! My *NEW* Secret: Referrals! My God! I no longer spend as much time doing offers on P2S. Actually, I haven’t done an over since June of 2012. I just get referrals! They are so worth it…. And they pay in $$! This is the #1 Best way to make money, while take AP classes, working as a part-time lifeguard, practicing for the ACT, maintain my beautiful GPA, etc….. I like it! Do you? ____________________________ 9.) MY GOALS: Mmm, I am a very spastic shopper online, so I buy whatever I like at that moment. With that said, I have few goals. Maybe some more shoes, rings, watches (I collect)... whatever I like I buy. My next goal probably another bag from ASOS. I seriously love that store!! Just got this amazing military contrast panel bag from there- love it! Also, just ordered a pair of nice ocean blue chinos! I have never worn an article of clothing so much in my life!! Oh! And just an FYI, ASOS (discover fashion online) is the best online store I've found for amazing fashion. Free Shipping, and Free Return Shipping!! They have amazing prices and just
"fabulous" clothes!! Check it out!! ________________________________________________ 10.) My best friend on P2S is illumination. She is so much fun to talk to and.... she wonderful! I love you my little LemonPie!--- the community on here is super friendly, and very nice, but I am sure you already knew that! :O)_________________________________________________________ 11.)If you ever have extra points, that you don't know what to do with... DON'T WORRY! I am always willing to take them off your hands. Need help on P2S? Just PM me- I Love mail. ___________________________________________________________ _______________________Thnx!
