Who, me?! Whatever it is, I didn't do it, I swear. I'm innocent! On a more serious note, make sure you listen to SNC FanChat, the first and only podcast dedicated to Straight No Chaser! It's completely fan-run by myself, along with Dave White and Tina Gaston. Tune in for exclusive news, contests, interviews, and inside scoop on the group! Oh, and we have our own theme song now! (Thank you, Walter Chase and the Airtight! Oh, and Charlie, too.) http://sncfanchat.blogspot.com/ Also check out the online fan magazine BY Chasers, FOR Chasers: SNC Quarter Notes! SNC Quarter Notes is an online magazine and news source, completely run by fans of the ten man a cappella group, Straight No Chaser. This unofficial SNC magazine includes everything from news in the world of Straight No Chaser to fun games, puzzles, and contests! I hope to see submissions from most (if not all) of you!!! http://sncquarternotes.com/
Studying and essay writing (not a favorite hobby) SLEEPING (Seggie doesn't think I sleep. Ever. Well, I do. Just, y'know, at ungodly hours, like 2am to noon.) Crafts (especially crafts relating to paper: bookbinding, origami, scrapbooking, etc.) Music/singing (duh) Surfing the internet (a little too much) Graphic design (kinda; I love playing around with Photoshop) Taking pictures Procrastinating... (I'll get to it... Eventually.) Spending hours doing stuff SNC related... If I've forgotten any, please tell me!!
Seriously? You're seriously asking me that?
Shaina Eng (Yes, I'm used to people looking at my first name funny. Yes, I did get the "-ing" verb jokes as a kid. I also get the "English" abbreviation jokes.)
Shiva (Thanks to a stupid TV news reporter; when I was being interviewed for a news story in the 7th grade, he got my name wrong. I even SPELLED IT OUT FOR THE GUY AND HE WROTE IT DOWN. Still not over it. I greatly dislike the fact that I have been given a nickname that is synonymous with a violent MALE Hindu god.)
April 12th (The best birthday EVER. I think Charlie and Lieve can attest.)
Aries (*fist pump*)
My driver's license says 5'3"... I'm actually 5'2.5" :o) (I'm also apparently very short, according to one of my roommates. :P)
Brown. I don't like touching them.
Currently Living In:
LA (Unlike Tina Gaston, I *do* live in the cool one on the best coast. I mean West Coast. USC, BABY!)
Los Angeles, CA (Not technically *in* LA, but right outside of it. Near the beach, so it's much better than actually living *in* LA.)
ALL THE SINGLE LADIES, PUT YOUR HANDS UP! (*raises hand*)
Good question... I'm told that I'm very... erm... enthusiastic. Oh, and I get pretty crazy when on sugar. And I laugh uncontrollably. I think it freaks some people out. Just a little.
Favorite SNC College Memory:
I was only a kid when SNC was formed... But I love watching videos from the 'good ol' days.' (Wow, that makes me feel REALLY young. And I bet it made other people feel really old. I do that sometimes. Stop talking, Shaina.) But, can I just say? Dry Campus. Yes.
... My various choir directors? And SNC. =D

Favorite Things in General:
YOU. Oh, and candy. Lots and lots of candy. I'm reading through all of this and realizing that I crack myself up. But I must only be funny when I have sugar. And I must think that I'm funny when I'm exhausted but kept awake because of energy drinks. Rats. Also, I think you should read the online comic, "Scandinavia and the World." www.satwcomic.com. Why? It's hilarious. Oh, and the characters are really cute. I like Denmark. :o)
What Magazines/Periodicals do you read consistently?:
Can I choose a newspaper? The Daily Trojan, ever since I got to USC. I used to have a subscription to TIME Magazine. So that...(I *LOVE* reading Joel Stein's columns. I think he's hilarious.) Popular Photography. Man, I wish I could take pictures like that. Oh, and I guess I consistently read SNC Quarter Notes. Because, y'know, I do layouts for it.
Name Your Top 5 Favorite Foods:
I'm really picky... But surprisingly enough, I don't really have favorite foods. BUT, I absolutely LOVE beef, especially STEAK! :D Oh, and candy. But I think I already mentioned that? Anything with sugar, basically. Like cookies. And cake. Brownies. Chocolate. Ohhhh, yes.
Name Your Top 5 Favorite Books:
Uhhh... I guess Harry Potter comprises seven books...
Name Your Top 5 Favorite Movies:
Name Your Top 5 Favorite Bands/Artists:
