  • Making the world a better place

    I think to make the world a better place people should learn to live simply and to work hard. People should not take the privilege of the modern world for granted. People also need to learn to take care of themselves on their own and to be strong. People need to know that life is hard, and need to learn not to be dependant on technology and to do things themselves.

  • My proudest accomplishments

    -I have taught myself Swedish.
    -I am a 3rd-degree black belt.
    -The longest book I have read is Gone With The Wind.

  • I'm an expert at...

    -Martial Arts
    -Learning Languages
    -Doing Different Accents, Voices, And Impersonations

  • A personal challenge

    One of the hardest things I have ever done was to become an assistant instructor and get my blue stripe in Martial Arts. The testing for that was different from any other testing I had ever been to. I was leading black belts in the things I needed to know to pass. I was doing it by myself and in front of all my teachers.

  • I always enjoy talking about...

    A lot of things. Anything from really simple things to really deep things. I like to talk about languages, karate, and just enjoying simple life.

  • Living abroad for one year

    I would go to Sweden or Russia.

  • My interests in other cultures

    I am interested in Sweden, though I have no relation to it. I just like it. I am interested in Russia, because my mother is from Russia. Languages on my to be learnt list are German, Dutch, Icelandic, and Finnish.

  • Cities and countries I have visited

    I have never been out of the States because my dad won't let me, but I have always wanted to travel the world. I live in Ohio and I have been to these states: Florida, Georgia, Tennesee, Kentucky, Indiana, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and New York. None of them were particularly interesting.

  • Personal skills

    -I learn languages easily
    -I know karate
    -I am ambidextrous
    -I can do different accents and voices
    Okay, now some weird ones:
    -I can raise my eyebrows individually
    - I can move my toes individually

  • It was better before

    I think that so much was better about the older generations. Back then in the good old days, people had some sense, they weren´t addicted to cell phones, because they didn´t have any, there was none of this nonsense about people marrying people of the same gender, nobody had actual surgery to change their gender, there were none of those ridiculous made-up genders, there were only two, people were religious, people didn´t usually swear much, and there was none of this liberal nonsense that exists today in millennials and younger generations. I would love to live back when you wrote handwritten letters, used rotary phones and records, as well as cassette tapes and VHS tapes. I would love to live back when there were actual gentlemen and ladies, which do not seem to exist much today. I would love to do my homework on a typewriter. I would love to live when no one was lazy, because you couldn´t afford to be, because there was no technology like we have today. Most of all, I would just love to live back in a time where people had some sense.

  • Childhood pleasures

    So many things, and though I am only 16, I wish I could be a little girl again. Now I am stressed out with school, work, and life in general, and I don´t have time to just do things that I enjoy. But some things I loved as a kid include:
    -Just walking around outside on a pretty day
    -Watching the sunrise
    -Watching the sunset
    -Playing outside at night in the dark
    -Playing in the snow
    -Playing in the rain
    -Playing pretend
    -Just being with my friends

  • I recently learnt...

    Swedish, how to do a hook kick in karate, and how to make bookmarks out of paperclips.

  • 10 years from now

    I really don´t know what to say when people ask this question. I really don´t know. I will be 26 by then, and probably working as a translator or something that has to do with languages, like a language teacher.

  • I'm excited about...

    Really nothing. I don´t have much to look forward to anymore, so I guess just going to work, because I do love my jobs.

  • Something uncommon about me

    I am ambidextrous, I can raise my eyebrows individually, I can move my toes individually, and my mother is from Russia.

  • I wish people knew more about...

    That just because you are conservative, it doesn´t mean that you are mean, or stupid, or anything else that the liberals think about us. It means that we are logical, believe in tradition, and are tough and know about how the world works.

  • It is better now

    I really cannot think of much. There have been advances in medicine and science, but that is about it. I like the older generations much better.

  • As a child, I wish...

    I really wish I had enjoyed my childhood more. I did have a very good one, but I wish that I had known how fast it would go by. My friends and I call it Scarlet O'Hara Syndrome. It is when you want something really bad, but when you get it, you want just the opposite. If you read Gone With the Wind or saw it, you will know why we call it that. I wanted so much to grow up fast, but now I want more than anything to be a little girl again.

  • A career without obstacles

    I would love to just read for a living, just books my choice. But I know that that is not a real job. I would love to learn and teach languages.

  • My parents and me

    There are very, very, very many, but mostly, I believe that kids should be able to be their own people, and actually be free to say what they feel. My parents think kids should not be able to say what they feel, and think that they should constrain what a child is allowed to say and what they aren't, which I think is absolutely absurd.

  • My feeling about the future

    No, I am terrified for the future. I am worried about the government controlling everything and that there will be no freedom, and that things from the good old days like rotary phones, cassette tapes, and typewriters will be obsolete and that no one will even remember them. I am also scared that books will cease to exist and that no one will read. The only thing that I think the future would be good for is advances in medicine.

  • My opinion on human nature

    It is proven that human nature is naturally selfish. But there are some good people.

  • I feel concerned about...

    The future of humanity and where the next generations are headed. I am worried that people won't take the time to just enjoy the simple life.

  • A trick or piece of advice

    I have a lot of random ones. I will probably update this, but here are a few for now-
    I have some for martial arts, and again, they are really random-
    -If you are going to break boards, shave the area you are breaking with. That way if you cut yourself on the board, and you need to wear bandages for a while and need to change them every day, it won't hurt when you take them off to change them.
    -When breaking boards, wear your everyday glasses if you have them, so that the wood has less chance of splintering off into your eye.
    -Another one with breaking boards, many people stop when they hit the board, as do I, so imagine the board being farther back than it is so that you can break through it.
    -Things (for girls especially) to carry at all times-
    -Feminine products
    -Lip balm
    -Hairbrush
    -Bandages
    -A book
    -An umbrella
    - Pens and pencils
    -Deodorant
    -Hairbands
    -Hand sanitizer
    -Glasses if you have them
    -A lens cloth if you have glasses
    -Among other things
    How to make yourself cry-
    -Still a natural way, though it is not used with emotion, just keep your eyes open without blinking, and tears will come.
    -Another way is just practicing and being in control of your emotions. Also look up the 10 to 1 technique.
    -Live in the moment, and don't spend time on things that are not enjoyable if you don't have to. Don't grow up too fast. Enjoy life.

  • Life regrets

    A lot of things, but mainly that I grew up too fast.

  • Improving the school system

    A lot of things, mainly common sense, and important life skills, instead of things we will never use, but also-
    -More foreign languages
    -Sewing, cooking, and cleaning
    -How to be independent and do things for yourself

  • Over or underrated

    Overrated-
    -Cell phones
    -Pretty much everything millennials and younger generations do
    Underrated-
    -Simple living
    -Hard work
    -Real books, none of those fake Kindles or ebooks
    -Talking in person
    -Handwriting
    -Common sense
    -Being tough sometimes

  • Something to tell the world!

    I also know a little American Sign Language, though not as well as my other languages. I am conservative, so if that bothers you, just don´t write to me. I am very traditional and old-fashioned.
