I could use some brass knuckles...  
♠ Basics ♠
Name/Nickname: Rowan
Age: 21
Occupation: Waitress, previously self-employed and on the look-out for a more permanent fixture.
Likes: Meeting new people, being busy, feeling useful, seeking new knowledge, running, boxing, swimming, horse riding, trying new things, philosophy, politics, science, crimonology, english, history, psychiatry, economics, keeping fit and active, eating healthily, all types of music, singing along to Frank Sinatra, being happy and having fun.
Dislikes: Being tired, dogs, the smell of fish/eggs/open drains, unmotivated people, staying inside, high calorie foods, being bored, people who always complain rather than getting the job done, narrow minded people and little children crying.
Strengths: Open minded, pretty honest, individual, independent, intelligent, charismatic, hard working, motivated, punctual, charming, friendly, eloquent, ambitious, tidy, good communicator, analytical, perceptive, good leader, trustworthy, well mannered, patient, persuasive, easygoing (up until the point that I'm not...), passionate, logical and I always like to be making myself useful and doing something.
Weaknesses: Easily bored, I try and be nice to everyone as I can't stand the thought of people not liking me, a bit cold and unapproachable at times, I can come across as arrogant, impatient if you interrupt me in the middle of something, I can say hurtful things without meaning to and be a bit too brutal with my honesty, a slight tendency to academically look down on somebody, vain and I can be a bit paranoid. Also you don't want to get on the wrong side of me, it takes a lot to get me really angry but when I am I tend to reduce people to tears.

♠ More In-depth ♠
Introvert or extrovert?: Everybody is an introvert but I make an effort to be an extrovert and to be friendly and engage others in conversation.
Hard Worker or layabout (or somewhere in between)?: Hard worker, I'd be horrified if people didn't think I was pulling my weight.
Are you the leader type?: I suppose, however I'm happy working in the capacity that I'm most needed in.
Are you adept at raising others' spirits?: I'm a very optimistic person, so yes.
Do you consider yourself popular?: Fairly, I'm not the kind of person people dislike.
People who first meet you probably think you are: Friendly, a bit weird and responsible.
How do you handle high-pressure situations?: Worrying won't solve it so I tend to get on with solving it.
Are you self-motivated, or do you rely on the encouragement of others?: Self-motivated, but as I like to give comfort to others, occasionally I'll need a bit of a morale boost.
Do you work through unpleasant situations for your own satisfaction, or to prove yourself to others?: For myself, you can only live your life for yourself (and God in my opinion, as a Christian) and I don't have anything to prove.

We Stand Alone Together ♠
Your weekend pass has been revoked. What were you planning on using it for?: Go for a long run to clear my head and then spend time outdoors and going for walks with a close friend.
You've been dropped into Normandy. You're all alone, it's pitch black, and there are Germans round every corner. How do you react? Who do you encounter on your trek to meet up with the rest of your battalion?: Hopefully I'd encounter other members of Easy Company, if not I'd either send them to their respective CO or keep them with me if they didn't know where to go and attempt to keep them safe. I'd try and keep my head and hook up with the rest of my company.
You're caught in heavy fire and you see a buddy take a hit a few feet away from you. Do you go and help him, or immediately dive for cover?: Depends on the intensity of the fire, it would make more sense to take out the enemy shooter beforehand, however upset I would be at my comrades/friends situation, it would be more helpful to them in the long run.
Many of your fellow paratroopers take the opportunity to grab a few souvenirs whilst billeting in towns. What, if anything, do you take and why?: Nothing, I'd advise other people to be careful in their actions as well but at the end of the day people will do what they will do. Although if it was Berchtesgaden that's another matter... (as compared to ordinary civilians)
War is over. What are your plans for the future?: Get a job which will fulfill me and live out the rest of my life in happiness.
Please include 1-3 photos of yourself (optional):

Lastly, link the three applications you have recently voted on:

Okay, so I'll admit I first scrolled down and saw your picture, and immediately I thought Buck. There's just something in your pose, and in your face/eyes as well, that's... Yeah. That reminds me of him. And when I read your application everything seemed to fit, because he too is responsible and you seem like someone who is pretty calm and knows what she wants, SO YEAH. I'm definitely going for Buck.

I think if Guarnere and Winters had a baby, you'd be their offspring. You have that sort of Guarnere-confidence to you and he was also the type to go to any place where help was needed the most. He was also the type to take care of other people.

But you seem more of the quiet sort of confidence so

I would go with WINTERS!!!

(I haven't used LJ in a while so I don't remember how to bold, sorry.) The whole bit about how you love working, working out and being useful outshines your Guarnere swag by just a bit. :)
