The questionnaire below is one that I think I initially raised and had us both do. We even created mix-tapes to exchange with each other. Jamie took this and uses it in her class each year as a getting-to-know you exercise, as it really can reveal a lot about a person - music taste, attitude, outlook, thought processes, etc.
Mine has been updated and revised since that initial creation, but that's more a reflection of my relationship with music. My answer to favorite song always changes because it becomes more about what is speaking to me at the time. Plus, there has been a lot of new music that has been absorbed in the interim.
So, below, you will find the soundtrack to my life, if I got to score that movie. I would love to hear some of yours if you want to include in the comments below.
