We haven't done this in awhile, but I want to bring it back! It's our MOTW (Member of the Week) program. It's a great way to get to know each other. 

 

All you need to do is copy the questions below into a reply and answer them. Submit them. I will randomly pick one a week (or so, depending on how many I get. May be Member of the next 2 days...) I will not make your responses 'live' until you are MOTW. 

 

Here are the questions to copy and paste and answer:

What is your username?

 

What is your first name (optional)?

Do you have pets? What are their names?

 

Favorite 3 colors?

What's your favorite holiday and why?

 

What is the BEST thing that has happened this school year?

 

What is the WORST thing that has happened this school year?

 

What are you reading RIGHT NOW? (not this SECOND, but currently)

 

What is your favorite all-time book?

 

You are going to meet your FAVORITE famous person for lunch. Who is it and where would you take them?

 

Do you spend more time with books, TV, phone, or other device?

 

 

Here's $500. What are you going to do with it?

 

 

If you could do ANYTHING this summer, what would it be?

You're stuck-on-an-island question. You only have 5 things with you. What are they? Assume there's food and water on island.

You are going to meet your FAVORITE famous person for lunch. Who is it and where would you take them? I think I have to say Obama. I would take him to a quiet restaurant on South Beach. 

 

Do you spend more time with books, TV, phone, or other device? I'm trying to lessen the amount of time on my iphone but that's probably the answer. My kindle is next- I read on my kindle. Remember I'm 43 and blind.

 

 

Here's $500. What are you going to do with it? Buy a bicycle trainer (so I can ride my bike stationary inside my house)

 

 

If you could do ANYTHING this summer, what would it be? Go to New Zealand and Australia for two months.

 

 

Quick- cats or dogs? Cats

 

 

You're stuck-on-an-island question. You only have 5 things with you. What are they? Assume there's food and water on island. OK my family (that's kind of cheat answer isn't it), survival book, clothing, sharp knife, pencils.

Anything else?? The last question was a toss-up between world peace and food for everyone. My thought is if everyone is peaceful and happy they will work together to ensure everyone's health.

What is your username?

emeraldblue10

What is your first name (optional)?

emerald xD

How old are you (optional)?

-2 :p

Do you have pets? What are their names?

I used to have two crayfishes named SpongeBob and Patrick. They were found at a supermarket and were supposed to be eaten :0

Favorite 3 colors?

1)Black (I consider it a color), 2)blue, 3)purple

Quick: ice cream or chocolate?

ICE CREEEAM

What's your favorite holiday and why?

Halloween...all that candy :)))))

What is the BEST thing that has happened this school year?

Taking psychology class. It's so interesting. Even though it may seem like it's stating the obvious or it's being biased and too subjective, psychology is actually really cool, and you learn a lot about people and development and become more aware of issues like psychological disorders. 

What is the WORST thing that has happened this school year?

Scratched a car while attempting to park a car in the school parking lot. I left a note explaining what happened and gave my phone number, and no one has responded. But I don't think I've seen that car ever again in the school parking lot D:

What are you reading RIGHT NOW? (not this SECOND, but currently)

uh...well I was just attempting to read my physics textbook. 

What is your favorite all-time book?

Coraline. It's pretty short and easy to read. But it's the fact that it's written with simple sentences and short paragraphs without any fluff that makes the story really eerie. 

You are going to meet your FAVORITE famous person for lunch. Who is it and where would you take them?

My friends are my favorite people :p. We would probably just eat lunch under a tree like we always do.

Do you spend more time with books, TV, phone, or other device?

I spend more time on the school's computers. The school has better wifi than my home. 

Here's $500. What are you going to do with it?

Buy an iPhone ehehehe

If you could do ANYTHING this summer, what would it be?

Find a big grassy field on a clear sunny day and sleep. 

Quick- cats or dogs?

cats, but I'm not compatible with either of them TAT

You're stuck-on-an-island question. You only have 5 things with you. What are they? Assume there's food and water on island. 

Mess kit, sunscreen, spare clothing, a sleeping bag...maybe phone? Idk, if I were stuck on an island with food and water, I would never want to leave. 

Favorite musical group/band?

It changes. Right now they're l'arc en ciel and Clazziquai Project.

Favorite all-time song?

Wild Ones with Flo Rida and Sia.

Song you NEVER WANT TO HEAR AGAIN?

Baby, Justin Bieber.

If you could do one thing to make better our planet/people on planet, what would it be?

get rid of the prejudice and discrimination.

Anything else??

...I like to sleep. Do you like to sleep, too?
