  • 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 also need to learn to take care of themselves on their own. People need to know that life is hard, and need to learn not to be dependant on technology and to do things for themselves. The world would be a better place if people paid more attention to nature and life than technology.

  • My proudest accomplishments

    -Becoming a black belt
    -Teaching myself Swedish


  • I'm an expert at...

    -Being prepared
    -Debating
    -Deductive reasoning
    -Doing different accents, voices, and impersonations
    -Learning languages
    -Martial Arts

  • A personal challenge

    One of the hardest things I have ever done was to become an assistant instructor 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 of my teachers. There are many other hard things I have had to do, probably even harder than that, but that is the first thing that comes to my mind.

  • 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 life in general. I really don't mind the topic of conversation.

  • Living abroad for one year

    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 learn" list are German, Dutch, Icelandic, and Finnish.

  • Cities and countries I have visited

    I have never been out of the country, but I greatly wish to someday. I want to visit many different countries, especially in Europe. I have been to some different states, but there are no really particularly interesting places I can think of and every state is basically the same.

  • Personal skills

    -Ambidexterity
    -Doing different accents and voices
    -Learning languages easily
    -Martial Arts
    Okay, now some weird ones:
    -Being able to tell where someone is from (sometimes down to the exact region) just by their mannerisms, how they talk, and their accents
    -Moving each of my toes individually
    -Raising my eyebrows individually

  • It was better before

    I think that so much was better in the older generations. Back then, people had some sense, they weren't addicted to cell phones, because they didn't exist, there was none of the nonsense that exists now in the younger generations. I really do think most (not all) people in my generation have all the wrong ideas about life. 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 gentlemen were gentlemen and ladies were ladies. I would love to do my homework on a typewriter. I would love to live back when no one was lazy, because you couldn't afford to be, because there was no technology like what exists today. Modern technology is great for many things, but I do think it is a burden for the most part because people are too addicted to it. Most of all, I would just love to live back in a time when people had some sense.

  • Childhood pleasures

    So many things, and though I am only 17, 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:
    -Being with friends
    -Playing in the rain
    -Playing the snow
    -Playing outside
    -Walking around outside
    -Watching the sunrise
    -Watching the sunset

  • I recently learnt...

    Swedish.

  • 10 years from now

    I really don't know what to say when people ask this question. I will be 27 by then, and probably working as a translator or something that has to do with languages, like being 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 really 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 bigoted, stupid, or anything else that the liberals think. 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. Technology and modern life is good in some areas, but people overuse it and take advantage of it way too much.

  • 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 of my choice. But I know that that is not a real job, so 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 want. My parents think kids should not be able to say what they want, and think that they should constrain what a child is allowed to say and what they aren't, and even control their thoughts in the same way, which I think is absolutely absurd. My parents that a child is too naive stupid to have a voice, and that parents always know best, which is simply not true.

  • My feeling about the future

    No, I am terrified for the future. I am afraid of where technology is headed. It can be a good thing, but a very scary thing if used in the wrong way, and I am worried about what will happen to privacy, and that more and more people will live their whole lives online. I think the future has the potential to be good, but not if the world continues in the direction it is going.

  • My opinion on human nature

    It is proven that human nature is naturally selfish, which I think is true, even though good people do exist.

  • 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.

  • 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
